HDTV pwns Bop  
Ten HD are EVIL, I tell you! EVIL. (For the non-Aussies: Ten HD is a new high definition TV channel in Australia.) They smooshed Clark and Lee together in the one ad and thereby rendered me helpless to resist them! Their super-smart marketing strategy involves sci-fi Thursday which sees Smallville and Battlestar Galactica screened back to back at 8:30 and 9:30 respectively. In shiny beautiful HD. It's like I'm their target demographic?!?! They even got Jamie Bamber to do a spiel to camera about it. And their advertising has featured Lee so heavily it's ridiculous. I mean, I'm the last person to complain, but if you watched their ads, you'd think the whole show was about him!

The prospect of watching Smallville's gorgeous visual imagery in high def was kind of irresistable. So, now I've stolen my boyfriend's laptop and am staring at Clark in close-up. :D I must say that so far it's making me marvel at the photography direction even more than ever. I'm noticing details I never saw before (wow, guys, imagine if my meta was even longer! O.O). And Clark, Lana and Lex all have amazing power on screen (alas this eppy has no Lois!).

I wonder which ep of BSG is on tonight... it better have Lee! I doubt my bf will permit two stealings of laptop so this covert flirtation with HD may be a one-off. Oh, and space battles. I want high def battles!

I've been really quiet this week. Sorry. There was some stuff... *waves hands airily*


It's been dark days for some of my OTPs recently, so I thought I'd share a few links that helped me keep the flame(s) alive:

voldything's Show Me Love is a must-see vid, integrating Season 7 footage beautifully.

wisteria_ takes all the credit here, for hosting a commemorative celebration of favourite Kara/Lee scenes and an unprecedented picspam of pilot nipples.

There's a bunch of other stuff I wanted to rec, but if I don't post now I will get sucked into HDTV and never come out again!! *watching with one eye, blogging with the other* You guys should remind me to post more often so as to avoid this scenario. *nods*

ETA: Why is there no mood icon for 'seduced'?
ETA2: Ahhhh, no BSG tonight. They're just waving BSG Lee around as the carrot. *pouts*

I want to see Jamie's spiel! (OK, that sounds kind of dirty ;) I hope someone uploads the promo. And, btw, the space battles are AWESOME in HD.

It's pretty cute! :) I mean, it's your typical TV-promotion straight-to-camera thing, but he's pretty enticing (well of course I'd think so...). They've been using the shot of Lee launching his viper in Crossroads for ages in their general mash-up of shows, but they're doing a big push on this sci-fi Thursday thing now.

Battlestar's on their front page! It doesn't air on normal free-to-air, you see, so they obviously think they can hook the sci-fi geeks in this way. (And they totally can!)

The page about BSG is kinda adorable in how old it is (can you tell we haven't seen Season 3 yet here? :D

If I find Jamie's ad on YouTube, I'll let you know. :) I did a quick search but couldn't find it.

'Persona'. There was lots of pretty Clark/Bizarro.

The song is far from being my kind of music, but it works beautifully with the imagery
Mmm, *nods*. It's not my style either but it doesn't matter because it transcends that issue by being so well suited to the imagery. I love all the parallel play in it.

I figure it can't hurt to remind of one of your 2008 vid projects (the 'SV as barely disguised porn' one) that just begs to be made, especially if you're the one making it.
Ohhh, flattery will get you everywhere! :D It's heartening to know that there's an audience for that vid! *g* To be honest, it's on the backburner, but only because I was exhausted by Lex vid. It does demand to be completed at some stage but it's strangely epic in its own way.

SCI FI's marketing is pretty heavy on Lee, too, so it's reassuring that the marketing folks realize he's a draw/the male lead, even if the writers don't. ;P

Hooray marketing dudes! They know their stuff. ;) They should twist the writers' arms a bit more. (Wow, never thought I'd be backing marketing over writing...)
