Some days I just can't think of a title.  
I'm in the kitchen, helping my mom start cooking dinner.  She has Little House on the Prairie on.  She asks me what Melissa Gilbert is doing today.  I say I don't know; TV movies or something.

"I wonder if she's still married to what's-his-name."

I cannot let her see my secret and embarrassing crush!  "Um, Bruce Boxleitner, right?  I think they are.  Still married.  Um.  Yeah."

I do not set off any of her alarms.  After a minute or so: "Wasn't he on that show you like?"

"Yes.  Babylon 5."

"No, the remake one."

"Yes, he's in TRON.  The new one, too."

"No.  The show they did a remake of."  I don't answer her, because I have no idea what she's talking about.  Another minute passes.  "The one with Mary McDonnell."

"Battlestar Galactica?  He wasn't on that."

"Are you sure?"

"Mom, that was Edward James Olmos."

"No, the original."

"That was Dirk Benedict."

Five solid minutes pass.  Then: "Buck Rogers!"

I came down and got on IMDB.  I don't know if I have the heart to tell her that no, Bruce Boxleitner was not on the 1970s remake of Buck Rogers.  I do not even know what she was thinking.  Still, bless.  ♥

This morning I helped my Grandpa run some errands.  We took his dog in for shots and his annual check-up; we did his bi-weekly trip to the store to buy two specific items (juice and milk today); we finally used the gift card he got for his birthday back in March to buy him some fleece-lined jeans.  We stopped at Wendy's for lunch.  Now, I have not eaten at Wendy's in a powerful long time.  I saw that they had a new salad, and that it looked tasty - apples and cranberries and pecans and grilled chicken.  I'm not a fan of salad dressing, and to enjoy a dry salad I need a lot of flavor.

So I bought that salad.

Then I went back to Grandpa's house to eat lunch with him.

Then I opened up that salad.

Wow. Just, wow. What an unimaginable douche. I... just... yeah. So much more I could say.

Yeah. What's ironic is that Katee's Starbuck is a million times more badass and awesome than Benedict's Starbuck ever dreamed of being. Such sour grapes. What's funny is that if he had played nice he might have scored a guest appearance a la Richard Hatch (who ended up being so awesome and gracious that it turned into a recurring gig) and been relevant again.

Sucks to be you, Dirk Benedict. Enjoy being a douche-y has-been.

Which reminds me, I need a Zarek icon. I totally lurved Zarek.

I realise none of you need to know this, but I coulnd't think of a more productive contribution to this conversation. My brain is dead.

One of these days I'm going to icon all of BSG. I have a group of icons from early S3 and then a group from three or four episodes in S4. I think I have a Zarek icon somewhere, but I don't think it's any good, heh.

caprica9 has posted some Zarek icons. She seems to ship Roslin/Zarek pretty hard (and has fun photoshopping them together), but there are some decent just-Zarek icons in there, too.

DO NOT AGREE ...
I personally like and enjoy Dirk Benedict’s Starbuck a million times better than the new version. The new series makes me actually fall asleep. The article he wrote was years ago and only states his point of view. Now, why is it we feel have the right to criticize and say everything we want but can no respect somebody else opinion? I understand him perfectly. “It was an end of an era”. It certainly was !!

And for recurrent appearances … I don’t think he is at all interest. He is doing great on stage in Europe. I can't wait for him to come again to London to go see him again.

Hey, I can respect people's opinions when they differ from mine plenty. But as soon as he starts being sexist and misogynistic about it? Then I have the right to think he's a dick. "Men hand out cigars and women hand out babies?" Sorry, that's bullshit, and I have no problem calling him on it. I think he just got his panties in a twist because someone had the audacity to take his character and make him a girl. It wounded his apparently very precious masculinity.

I have no problem with people not liking the new BSG, but criticizing it because it actually has women in it who are real characters, and not just Athena randomly crying on the bridge and Cassiopeia only existing as eye candy and let's not even get into two whole episodes that revolved around "we can't let girls fly Vipers!" is a criticism that I'm not going to see as valid, ever, sorry.

Re: DO NOT AGREE ...
Yeah, there's no real good defense for that article.
Holly: Starbuck bwhollywobbles on October 6th, 2010 03:05 pm (UTC)
Ok, you know what? I'm just gonna say it. Not only is he sexist with a farcically old fashioned, simple view of the world, he's got no depth whatsoever. Sometimes I think it's a good thing people don't live longer than they do, so that people like him with no hope of changing will leave the world to the rest of us instead of poisoning it with their ideas any longer. Cruel? Probably.
