Art History Featuring the Ladies of Battlestar Galactica

BoomerklimtSixlicht

Megan Lara has drawn up Starbuck, Laura Roslin, Six, and Boomer in the style of Modern Painters such as Klimt and Lichtenstein. If Ferris Bueller’s Day Off taught us anything, is that you can only understand paintings like these through intense, neurotic staring contests. That’s why they are available for sale as a series from Quantum Mechanix. Unfortunately, the Lichtenstein Six is only available as a San Diego Comic-con exclusive!

Former ‘Smallville’ and ‘Secret Circle’ Showrunners to Helm ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Reboot

Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders, known for their work on the final seasons of Smallville and as consulting producers on The Secret Circle have been hired to run the Kristen Kreuk-starring reboot of Beauty and the Beast. Admittedly, this is the first time I’ve seen a still from the show, and it appears that we have gone from Ron Perlman’s brooding and mysterious prosthetics to…a scar. A single scar. Does the Beauty and the Beast thing even work if the Beast is gorgeous? What about the themes of inner beauty, looking beyond appearances, and… Look why don’t we just start making the logical endgame for this? Gender-swapped version of I Dream of Genie, Thursdays at 8! And that folks, is why they pay me the big bucks.

Follow the adventures of Paul Mason as he embarks on a 13-hour journey from simple printer paper to cybernetic terror from beyond the stars. This papercraft Cylon Raider was a lot of work, but trust me, the results are bad-ass. You can find the pattern and full footage here.

Primeval Filming at Coal Harbour

YVRshoots has uncovered a new shooting location for Primeval, this time in Coal Harbour. We can see Andrew-lee Potts, one of the stars from the British original series, relaxing with the cast and crew as they film an investigation of a Vancouver software developer who has probably been eaten by a Velociraptor. And you thought QA had it rough. You can see the rest of the photos here.

http://youtu.be/jXiRM9ZS0z4

In their latest appeal to save The Secret Circle, fans of the show delivered 300 lbs of plastic gold coins to the studios of ABC family. They also dropped off an appeal letter to president of the network, Michael Riley. I’m not sure how much good this is going to do to get the show back, but you have to admire The Secret Circle fans for their gusto.
