Friday Forum: A Few of My Favorite Things
In an effort to open up things a bit more, as well as compensate for my hectic week and inability to plan anything better ;), this week's topic is devoted to posting about anything you want - as long as it stays within the comms rules. I'm going to concentrate on the visual, but feel free to post links to interviews, articles, whatever Jamie related stuff is a favorite of yours. :)



One of the first photos in which I saw of Jamie out of uniform.






Not even a towel in sight! And the shot I wish PETA had used.




The Arms! The Bloody Hands! The Angst! Five years and two seasons later this still remains one of my favorite Lee Adama photos.




A photo from the book given to the cast and crew. It does my Lee/Laura shipper heart good.




The BFFs of BSG.




I named this photo "Adorable" because I think it is. And it's been the comms default user icon since the beginning.




My favorite con photo. Not much to say other than, "Le Sigh".


There are a lot of great BSG vids out there and I hate pimping myself (Really!), but this vid makes me so happy. Mostly because my awesome and talented friend, beccatoria was able to take a (crackish) idea I had and make it a reality. It's "The Ladies Choice". The music is from the film Hairspray and used to showcase the hot guys of Battlestar Galactica, of which Jamie is most certainly one.

The shirtless picture of him makes me want to lick my computer screen.

The other PETA shot, Bloody Hands, BFFs and favorite con pic - all on my list too. Well done sharing some of my brain waves. ;) Also...

- The BSG Roundtable Podcast. (When it opens in iTunes, scroll down to #38) OMFG SO MUCH LOVE. It breaks my heart a little that they didn't do more of these; frankly, I'd have been fine with just a few more regular podcasts that included cast members. But cast members + alcohol + rampant silliness and not just a little bit of thought-provoking discourse = *heart explodes with glee*. Also would have been cool to have at least one of the ladies in on it too, but seeing as how my favorite boys (Jamie, Tahmoh and Callis) are all present, I can't complain. Plus BONUS Mark Sheppard. Awesome. It's 3 hours long so too many great moments to name, though my favorites include the moment halfway through where they all start getting extra shouty and you can tell the scotch kicked in XD; Jamie's lovely comparison of Roslin and Adama to the teachers who caught you smoking behind the bike sheds in school and let you get away with it (LMAO); this exchange:

   Mark: I was given a very well-rounded character to play... and I think an extraordinary idea of this man, who talked too much...
   RDM: Who talked too much?
   Jamie: You fucking did, I'll tell you that for nothing.

And, of course, Jamie's EJO impression. Which, because it must be heard, I've sampled for your enjoyment. You're welcome. ;):

- Our own asta77's interview with Jamie at Dragon*Con 2007, which I truly think is fantastic. Some of his answers are brutally honest, others a bit short on detail, but she got him in an off-the-cuff mood and that's when I most love hearing what he has to say. Good on ya, m'dear.

- THIS GIF. YESSSSS. (eternal thanks, airings):


- The arms in this photo - HOLY CHRISTMAS:


- This photo, full stop (possibly my all time favorite):


- OMFG DORK:


- OMFG MONSTER DORK:


- Guilty pleasure: The occasional daft dress sense. There, I've said it. I don't care, I adore him that much more for simply saying "screw it" once in a while. I hear you, boo - I have my "can't be arsed to put on actual shoes" days, too. Viva los flip flops:


- THIS FACE:


- Which, come to think of it, is basically the same as THIS FACE (no wonder I love it so much.):


There are more, but as per usual, I've overdone it. I should leave something for the rest of you. ;)

I've gto so much love for that podcast! My favourite bits are when Jamie recalls how Eddie asked them all not to sleep before filming 33, and Jamie's all "I have three small children, I don't need to deprive myself from sleep!".
If I remember correctly that's also the one in which Jamie tells Ron he doesn't like intercutting scenes and then he goes kinda overboard and asks him to promise never to use it again! His over-excitement is adorable!

I think there is another podcast with Tahmoh and Grace but it's not as interesting.

Thanks for the link to the interview! Now having seen the last season and knowing what he's talking about, it's really revealing. He was obviously quite frustrated about the lack of Lee's involvement (me too, Jamie me too!).

For some reason the pen photo is so hot to me, the eyebrow kills me!
And the green flip flops are just puzzling, as if he realized he had to add a little madness to the outfit!

Both he and Callis get very over-excitable a few times. It's kind of a riot. (I also love the bit where Jamie gives Tahmoh crap about him saying he's never had any scenes with Tricia, "Except for that time I kissed her in Season 1 on Caprica." Jamie won't let that one go. "You KISSED HER. That's a scene!!!" LMAO.)

I think there is another podcast with Tahmoh and Grace but it's not as interesting.

Yeah, that was the regular podcast so it's on the S3 DVD. It was for the broadcast version of Unfinished Business. (Which I always found kind of odd as Athena and Helo have, comparably, a lot less screen time than the other principles in that episode.)

HEEEE! OMG, I didn't realize, until you put the Hornblower and 'Daybreak' photo next to each other, that he made the same 'Joy Face'. That's awesome!

And any photo in which Laura is touching Lee is awesome. ;-)

Remember that bit in the roundtable podcast where Jamie starts getting all worked up about something and Callis says "The more he drinks the more he turns into Lee Adama" - ? And Jamie responds to that with "No, it's.. well, it's more Jamie Lee." (Cue everyone shouting "HA HA HA JAMIE LEE!!!!")

Anyway... any time Jamie makes that face in anything, ever again, I feel obliged to shout out "ARCHIE LEEEEE!" XD

Great pics, fab vid! Just what I need to start the day...

I got out my BSG Year Book (and tried) to get you a better scan of that photo.



asta77 From: asta77 Date: June 27th, 2010 04:29 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
A very belated THANK YOU! I very, VERY much appreciate you sharing a better scan of that photo. It is one of my favorites. Oh, what could have been! ;)
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: June 22nd, 2010 09:00 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
A few days late, but it occurred to me that in reference to our favorite BFFs... I forgot to post this GIF:



Clearly, it was required. ;)
asta77 From: asta77 Date: June 27th, 2010 04:30 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
That doesn't feed the RPF at all! ;p

I'm a bit late to the party, sorry!
All good choies! the wet t-shirt picture is obscenely hot and the bloody hands is one of favourite Lee pics too!

My favourite panel is probably th Paley Center one with Mary, Eddie and the Producers(once you get past the suit!). He cracks everyone up and is so self-deprecating, it's a great watch!

As red carpet photos go, I think the Jules Vernes pics are my favourite, the short hair and beard combo and the dark suit is really hot and Kerry looks gorgeous too! (I'd post a pic but I don't think I can without a LJ account, I promise to get on that soon!)

There is one insanely gorgeous shot of Jamie but I can never find where it's from, he has dark hair and a stubble and leans forward slightly, cassie00 uses it in one of her icons with Big Ben in the background.

THere you go, sorry about the colourless posting!
asta77 From: asta77 Date: June 27th, 2010 04:33 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
The Jules Verns pics are awesome. You're reminding me there is one of James, Jamie and Mary I absolutely love. I should try to dig that out for future use! :)

I think I know of the Cassie icon and Jamie photo you are referring to, and I have it, but it's saved on my other computer. I'll need to dig that one out too.

This one? ;)

asta77 From: asta77 Date: June 27th, 2010 05:40 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
That might be it! There were a number of similar photos so I can't be 100% sure. But it's still very nice. :)
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: June 27th, 2010 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
I flipped through them and that seemed to be the best one. There were some funny blinky/"WTF face" ones too. XD
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: June 27th, 2010 05:32 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
You can post pics w/out an LJ account using TinyPic or Imageshack. :) Anyway, I agree Re: Jules Verne Fest too - I'm a sucker for the scruff too and those pics (plus the video, plus the fact that we got so much of both - bonanza!) totally did me in.


I love this one.

(BTW, the 3xcusemyfrench girls got a lot of great shots from the carpet & inside the actual BSG event the next day, which are HERE. Worth a peek. GUH.)

My favourite panel is probably th Paley Center one with Mary, Eddie and the Producers(once you get past the suit!). He cracks everyone up and is so self-deprecating, it's a great watch!

The Paley NYC one?! I've only seen clips, where are you getting the full version? (Last I checked Audible.com had the LA Paley one, but not that one... granted, I haven't checked in a while tho.)
From: (Anonymous) Date: June 27th, 2010 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
I meant the one moderated by Matt Roush in 2006. There used to be a outube clip with a link to the whole thing but it's been taken down (I think it was called the museum of radio and television bach then).

If I find it I'll came back and post a link!
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: June 27th, 2010 09:56 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Yup, that's the one. A lot of clippage that was on teh internets seemed to go MIA when the MTR/Paley switch happened. Major bummer. :(

You can download it here: http://galacticastation.com/Video/Se3/video.html
(middle of the page).
Upon rewatching I have to say the Moore/Eick parts kinda bore me a bit but Jamie and Mary make up for it and the trivia questions at the end are really funny.
asta77 From: asta77 Date: June 28th, 2010 12:46 am (UTC) (Link Me)
Thanks for the link! It occurred to me I did not have the whole panel saved. Now I do. :)
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: June 28th, 2010 01:17 am (UTC) (Link Me)
EYYYYY! *hi-five* Bless you, my child. *right-click-save*

PSST!... Here I go again... I like the suit. ;)
(Isn't that his Dr. Faustus suit?
From: (Anonymous) Date: June 28th, 2010 09:51 am (UTC) (Link Me)
No problem :)

I liked the suit too, when I saw the panel but later some pics from the red carpet emerged and it strangely reflected the light and looked almost fluorescent purple!
