RL is messing with my fandom activities  
One day back at work and I'm already grieving the loss of quality online time. :( Especially with so many shiny fun things right now!

There's lots of great meta coming out about BSG's 'Razor' (and I am not going to get sick of talking about that any time soon!) and also the funniest deleted scene I've ever heard of needs to be giggled over. I mean really. *blinks* All the time we were enduring the Quadrangle of Doom and flinging insults at each other's factions, we should really have been blaming Tigh? *lolz* Nice plan, Cylon master! :D

Sorry. I know there's some interesting meta in there somewhere--about Kara and Tigh and how they're paralleled and I did find it interesting that they scripted Kara as having an experience where she was initially mocked for sleeping with Lee--I do think that would have been quite difficult for her to deal with when she was already freaking out. But... but... I still find it hard to think straight about it for the FUNNY. Thankfully sasa_hq provided me with the appropriate giggle-outlets here and here.

Kara, honey, next time you need relationship advice, please to be asking someone other than Mr I-killed-my-wife-and-am-an-alcoholic-Cylon.

As if BSG fandom wasn't entertaining enough, SV is all geared up for a Lana-centric episode that will no doubt be controversial and I still can't get over the fact that Clark may be about to CLONE HIS OWN MOTHER. There's a cool post here about Lana--still the best comm name ever. ;)

In sadder news, the latest draft of my latest vid went pfft and I have to do it all over. :( Boo! But I am close to finished and if I wasn't in such a silly mood would be vidding right now.

Finally this is the best anonymous comment I have ever received. :D

Damn, I'm sorry to hear about the vidding woes :( Will you be able to recreate it quickly?

I looked at the text in that deleted screen script and had a literal WTF? moment. It made my head hurt, trying to comprehend what on earth was going on - and it also didn't do a lot to endear characters to me :P It does play into the "Anders is better for Kara" school of thought though. *sighs*

I'm sooo tempted to waste a few evenings putting together an attempt to do a humourous picspam in the format "A Tale of Two Pilots..."

I'd watch that continental coffee comment though - I've seen Three Colours: Blue. You're supposed to add your coffee to vanilla ice cream, which means you won't lose weight but you will get to eat more ice cream.

I had a WTF moment too. I just couldn't see Kara blurting that out to Tigh of all people. I have to wonder if the writers worked backwards. By that I mean that they knew how they wanted Tigh and Kara to interact with each other once they were back on Galactica, needed a bonding scene set up the new closeness, and thought what better way then have the guy in the frakked up relationship give advice to someone juggling two frakked up relationships. But Kara holds so much in, we're not even sure she's told Lee and Adama about her childhood, that I don't buy her sharing such a huge moment and decision in her life with Tigh. My take was always she woke up, freaked out, and went running off to find Anders and drag him to the alter...or river...to avoid analyzing it all.

I'm still not really sure how to take the deleted scene. On a completely basic level it is amusing and silly and odd.

But if Kara's decision was influenced by Tigh at all then Lee had no chance. Tigh has always clashed with Lee and yet he liked Anders right from the start (re: drinking scene and laughing at Sam's lame jokes).

And I think I'm glad they ultimately cut it because realistically, I don't think Lee would've stayed naked and cold for that many hours without waking up for Kara to drink a bottle with Tigh and then get married an entire hour before Lee made it back to camp. Seems a bit too much of a stretch to me.

I do hope it's on the boxset though, as well as the one Jamie mentioned about Lee and Kara being honourable with each other.

Do you think we might get all the outtakes for pilot!sex too?

I'm still behind on Smallville...must catch up!

Amusing/silly/odd? Yes, I concur. *g*

Tigh has always clashed with Lee and yet he liked Anders right from the start
Yup. Of course Tigh would never support Lee, and if Kara actually did blurt this out then I feel like she's smart enough to know Tigh's not pro-Lee. So then you'd have to start wondering if she was just looking for someone else to push her in the direction she was already going.

I agree with you that it makes the timeline even more silly. I mean I can see Lee being a little wiped after the crazy sex (*smirk*) but not THAT wiped. *has faith in his endurance*

, as well as the one Jamie mentioned about Lee and Kara being honourable with each other.
I want that one more!

Do you think we might get all the outtakes for pilot!sex too?
If only!

All the time we were enduring the Quadrangle of Doom and flinging insults at each other's factions, we should really have been blaming Tigh?

I know! It might have been in response to Wisteria's post that I posited that if Tigh had encouraged Kara to stay with Lee things would have been very different. I'm thrilled the scene was cut for many reasons, mostly because I just don't see Kara blurting THAT out to Tigh of all people. And I never felt that outside Lee, Kara, and their rightly suspicious spouses, no one knew what happened between the two. Good editing Ron! :)

And because you are having horrible vidding woes I shall forgive you for not commenting on my 'Razor' thoughts yet. ;p

Yeah it's always a little comforting to see that the deleted scenes have been deleted for GOOD REASON. Not always the case, admittedly, but nice when it happens. :D

And I am SO THERE for your post! I nearly mentioned it here in an OMGASTA77HASPOSTEDMETAMUSTREAD way but then I wondered if it was locked? Anyways, I will be there soon soon, promise! *manic*

Ahaha! That's a great WTF? comment :-)

I still can't get over the fact that Clark may be about to CLONE HIS OWN MOTHER.

Is that not the absolute and final proof that Clark and Lex are MADE FOR ONE ANOTHER?????? We know Lex will be creating his love child with Clark in the future :-)

Absolutely! :D They just need to confess to each other their secret desire to clone and all will be happily ever after... with clones. :D

Even I can think of better places to get relationship advice than Tigh. Of course, it's Kara doing the asking, so perhaps she doesn't have the best perspective on the topic.

I thought it rather odd when watching that he'd apparently been so dead to the world that he didn't notice her leaving his side for, what, 2 hours? Surely someone would have come along to warm him up by then.

Surely?! Seems very odd to us too. What's next? We find out Lee got sex advice from Ellen?! Actually no, that's still not as funny.

and thank you for sharing the deleted scene! That is awesome, indeed!

Good luck at work!

Ah, yes, it's weird when you randomly get a comment like that on an old post. But this person clearly knows me--they mention coffee and being a suave European? WIN!

Thanks about the vid sympathy--though you so will regret that when you see what it is. :p
dianora: bsg lee armsdianora2 on November 7th, 2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
I did find it interesting that they scripted Kara as having an experience where she was initially mocked for sleeping with Lee

See, I didn't see it as him mocking her for sleeping with Lee so much as mocking her for being such a screwup as always. Like, wow, could you have done something more spectacularly stupid and amusing to those of us on the sidelines? But thinking about Tigh, you are probably correct. He's not exactly Lee's biggest fan. Ultimately, while I'm glad we got to see the text, since I've always wondered about that scene, I think it's for the best that it was left out.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara owns manfleshbop_radar on November 8th, 2007 08:29 am (UTC)
Yeah, that's my verdict too--interesting to see but good it was left out. Clearly Tigh does not admire Lee's arms as much as we do! :D

Ahahaha. That is the best deleted scene ever. Actually, any Kara and Tigh bonding together in bad relationships moment is a good scene! They are the best comic relief.

Oh, man, that anon. comment is horrid!

Oh, do you think the anon. comment is horrid?! I honestly found it very amusing! Perhaps I was just in a good mood from the silly Kara & Tigh scene.

That scene is just WTF on so many levels and I shall need time, and then more time to get my poor little brain to wrap around it. Until said time I will just join you in giggling for extended periods of time (and maybe go nag Dionusia to write us crack of the very best kind ;)

Creative work going pfft is very bad *hugs you*

Oh noes! You lost a vid draft! You lost some vids last year too when your hard drive crashed, right? But then you got a better a computer so maybe there's a silver lining to this too. I hope so!

There is a Lana is Okay community? Yay! Because though I don't know her well, from what I've seen she really is okay. And very interesting right now.
*off to join community*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Ericabop_radar on November 8th, 2007 08:36 am (UTC)
Yup, I have a history of losing vids. One day I shall be rich and have more memory. *wishes*

Join comm! Join comm! We started it in response to all the 'Lana should die' comms which were really ugly and horrible. I mean it's one thing to dislike a character, it's another to spend your time thinking up ways for them to die. *boggles* Besides. Lana really IS ok. And totally interesting and morally grey right now. :)
smact46smact46 on November 9th, 2007 03:34 am (UTC)
While I can't say that I am not glad that they cut it out, I'm glad to see this scene because it explains Tigh's closer relationship with Kara, but the idea of Saul mother frakker tigh giving out relationship advice makes me crack up - I'm not sure what is more disturbing the fact that he gives it, or the fact that Kara *takes* it (the advice) from him at this point in time, (given their past history) or the choice that Kara ultimately makes which is cruel to both Lee and Sam, not to mention herself.

In all seriousness, I think Kara had *really* already made up her mind the moment she woke up, headed back to camp, and left Lee naked and asleep expecting to wake up to an entirely different set of circumstances than to wake up alone and finding out that Kara had actually married Sam. Still gives me chills.

As someone else pointed out though (please forgive me - I have forgotten who it was) it does sort of help explain why Kara just made her decision and never looked back - good soldier that she is. Makes me think again about the recurring military themes of BSG that razor recently highlighted for me again re decision making, accountability and how people live with the decisions that they make and even reinterpret them - possibly. I mean Kara's refusal to divorce Sam on religious grounds may well stem from her *beliefs* but they are just thoughts, thoughts can be distorted. They may have just been a way to also help Kara live with the decision that *she* had made.

Yeah, I think so too and I think it's more powerful as an unvoiced action, an instinctual fear response.

re decision making, accountability and how people live with the decisions that they make and even reinterpret them - possibly. I mean Kara's refusal to divorce Sam on religious grounds may well stem from her *beliefs* but they are just thoughts, thoughts can be distorted. They may have just been a way to also help Kara live with the decision that *she* had made.
Mmm, oh, i love that analysis! Yes! You're right that it does tie into these themes of being able to make a firm decision and stand by it and whether the actions matter more than the intention--which are we judged by?

I guess you've got Lee who is capable of making very firm decisions as a commander, but waffles in his personal life. And Kara who makes very firm decisions in her personal life and never looks back, but who would struggle (I believe) to make the sort of calls we saw Lee make in Razor.
