    Although I will say for eye stuff try Urban Decay. I love their stuff. I'm still learning how to make-up and hair things, but I started with them. Easy to use, lots of colors.

    That reminds me, I might re-henna. Might have my friend put in some blonde highlights first, though, so the red shows as more than a red sheen in direct sunlight.

    was entertaining

    eddy actually somehow went to queens and then was on the g or something and i texted him and managed to get him in the right direction

    what a goose

    G goes right to the knitting factory, so he was kind of right

    BSG don't make no sense

    individual episodes of BSG, even individual story arcs within BSG, are some of the finest TV i've ever watched

    the special effects, production design, cinematography, direction, and my god the acting were consistently top notch

    but the show is a serial built around an over-arching meta-plot that don't make no sense and was pulled out of the ass of the writers on a case-by-case basis

    it is terrible

    you compare it to something that was written by someone who gave a shit (like JMS writing Babylon 5) and it is so incredibly awful

    i refuse to watch Caprica because i know it's going to be more of that shit, and even if it isn't it's still a prequel to a meaningless "universe" that is terrible and makes no sense

    With rare exception, I actually liked the "nonsense" BSG spun together, as did all of my BSG watching friends and family.

    The only place I EVER see any hate for it is on the internets. Not to say the hate isn't real; it is. I just think a lot more people like the way they ended the series than D&D would have you believe.

    That said, I think I am the only one of those friends and family who stuck with Caprica to the bitter end. I liked some of what they were saying, but the unfocused mess that was that show, and the unlikable cast they created, was doomed for total failure.

    Funnily enough, the part of BSG I hated the most, and by far, was Baltar's trial. Such a great idea with so much potential, thrown away in a bad American legal drama parody that was decided by a speech that had no bearing on the accusations.

    That's where I'm at right now watching it with my mom. They just "killed off" her favorite character and now this fairly lame trial which is being strung out over three fucking episodes.

    She's losing interest and I don't want to spoil it for her, but she needs to keep watching.

    I think they were kicking themselves for choosing a number that high (12). Because they already had one model that they almost never used, and a second who they just barely used and then they were like "Shit, 5 more?"

    Probably the greatest sci-fi show ever made, and it created arc based shows.

    Yeah, I use Lush's henna for it 'cause it's got other things added to prevent the smell. I don't mind it, kind of smells like collard greens, but some people don't like it.

    There's few things that rage me out more than bad serial writing.

    I'm a writer. I have, in fact, written TV before. I don't talk about it a whole lot but it is a thing I've done. Point is, when you are doing a serial TV series I think you have an obligation as a writer not to make shit up as you go along.

    Episodic TV series, or episodic TV series with the occasional story arc thrown in, are a little different since they're more about the status quo than an ongoing meta-plot.

    But BSG was a serial show, like Lost. Every episode followed the previous, and with a few exceptions none of the episodes are self-contained stories you could just drop from the show without missing anything in the future.

    When you are writing a show like that, I think you better fucking make sure you know what you are doing. If you are going to foreshadow plot threads, actually know where they are going. Don't just leave dangling hints you later come back and try to weave together like it's what you meant to do all along, because trust me it fucking shows, at the very least it shows to a writer and especially someone who has worked on TV some.
