SCI FI announces official season start

by on May.16, 2005, under Television

July 15th will mark the return of the SCI FI Channel’s big three – Stargate: SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and Battlestar Galactica. One cast change I hadn’t heard before: Jason Momoa (Baywatch, North Shore) is joining the cast of Atlantis – no details, but IMDB lists him as “Ronan Dex”. Also in the announcement is the new reality show Master Blasters starting July 27th, which sounds like a rocket-specific version of Scrap Heap/Junkyard Wars, and the return of Ghost Hunters and Tripping the Rift (With Carmen Electra replacing Gina Gershon as Six).

“Star Flops” article at

by on May.11, 2005, under General News

A writer at made me aware of an article on when Lucas creates a stinker: Every farm boy can’t be a Jedi, and every Star Wars creation can’t be a winner. With just a few days left before the big premiere of the last chapter in George Lucas?s opus, takes a trip into the recesses of a galaxy far far away to find the things that failed. Not all the movies have been masterpieces of modern cinema, but compared with 1978’s “Star Wars Holiday Special? –which features an off-key Carrie Fisher singing to a band of cloaked Wookies– well, they?re practically Citizen Kane. (And yes, we have video of the special!)

How does a Lightsaber work?

by on May.05, 2005, under Movies

A humorous article on howstuffworks gets in to How Lightsabers Work. Not really the technobabble article I was expecting, but more of a “Owner’s Manual” approach. Technically, I envisioned them as a glowing variation of Larry Niven’s variable sword.
