Jamie's Liner Notes on BSG S4 Soundtrack
The CD is out tomorrow, but I nabbed a copy at Bear's concert last Friday night in San Diego.  Virtually the entire cast and crew contributed liner notes, but JB's is far and away the best.  And I'm not being biased, my friend who is a Callis lover agreed. ;) ...

I watched the finale of "Battlestar" at the Television Academy surrounded by cast, crew, friends and family.  Bear was sitting right behind me.  When the credits rolled at the end I was desperately trying to bury my streaming face into my wife's arm to avoid unmanly embarrassment.  As soon as I pulled myself together I span round and grabbed Bear's hand.  His name got the biggest cheer in the credits. He is the 13th cylon.  He is out of this world. When most series rely on a collage of recent popular hits, Bear created his own musical mythology to match that of Ron Moore's characters. Taiko drums, uilleann pipes, ancient mantras, metallic shards of noise that largely avoid conventional melody with the occasional Dylan lyric.  Epic. Unique and completely original.  A foreign sound that hits right home. An Emmy in waiting... I still run to this stuff on my iPod, it is my "Eye of the Tiger" - as soon as it comes on I am Apollo again.  And I fly Vipers and win.

You 200% win, Jamie.

The pretteh doesn't hurt, but there is no turn-on like a man who is intelligent, articulate, and not afraid to admit he has feelings.

And he's right, too. This is extraordinary music.

Thank you!

Oh Jamie, you win!!!

I can never get enough of the words that come out of Jamie's mouth (or under his pen).

I get a kick out of him saying [the BSG soundtrack] is his "Eye of the Tiger" *g*

I am Apollo again. And I fly Vipers and win.
To me Jamie is the one and the only Apollo, and he always wins. :)

There he goes again, killing me with his intelligent words! Thanks for sharing this!

He really is perfect isn't he. Gorgeous beyond words, intelligent, articulate, gracious, humble. I could go on and on.

He is wrong on occasion though. His bum is not too big. It's delightful!

God that sexy man can kill me with his exuberance, eloquence, sincerity and brain power.
When I met him the first time he was just PALPABLE in person.
Staring straight into my eyes I thought I'd swoon, and I DO NOT SWOON but JB has that effect on me.

I cry for them not using him to his full capacity!

Aww Jamie. This man floors me with his way with words, I was almost in tears reading this.
He will always be Apollo to me.

How is he so excellent? Admirable head to toe, inside and out.
