The Holiday Post
Tis the season for me to butcher lyrics to a Christmas song. I usually only embarrass myself on my own LJ, but since JBN is enjoying it's fifth year of existence I figured it was time to do something just for you all. So, here's my little contribution to holiday spirit.....or collective eye rolling. Please, I beg of you, add your own celebratory contributions in comments. Assuming time permitted. Or pretty pics are always welcome. :) But I know how it is. I started scrambling just two nights ago. Happy Holidays!

To start, a favorite photo of mine. :)

All I Want for Christmas
(AKA: A Holiday Plea to Network Executives)

We're not asking a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing we need
We think we've been quite patient
Waiting for another series lead

Just a show to call his own
More appreciation you'll never know
Make our wishes come true
All we want is a new series
.....or two

We don't want too much this Christmas
BBC America, you helped fill our needs
In 2011, you kept our Jamie present
Three series on our TV screens

We did finally need to take to mocking
Those deaths now so commonplace
NBC, you could have made us happy
Gave us joy as he left L&O:UK

Our devotion we would have shown
The Battlestar reunion you had to blow
Now, to make our wish come true
We look to the other nets for a series
.....or two

We're not asking for much this Christmas
Many actors have two shows
Until that time we keep on wanting
Far more guest starring roles

CSI: Miami let him play a baddie
So good we could endure Caruso's schtick
We rejoiced House got him naked
However, losing his skin was kind of ick

John Doe should be a dark delight
We have Un Jour just in sight
But what Hollywood can you do?
All we want for Christmas is a series
.....or two

Oh, all you networks are casting
So many pilots everywhere
And with cable's summer season
Perception is set to air

Body of Proof we're awaiting
We hear they'll be Dana/Jamie kissing
But dear execs, bring us what we really need
Won't you please bring us Bamber weekly?

Oh, we don't want a lot for Christmas
One thing is all we're asking for
We just want to see our Jamie
Regularly in prime time once more

Just one (or two) shows to call our own
Such adoration you will never know
Make our wishes come true
All we want this coming season is a series
.....or two

All we want for Christmas is in you to do

All that I can manage right now is to say that it's delightful.

And, just in case I don't manage to come back in time I'll say it now

Merry Christmas! I wish you all great holidays with your loved ones.

ETA: since I managed to not fall asleep while typing - here is my 0.02.

Top 3 Jamie Bamber related things from 2011

1. Galacticon
Even if he didn’t manage to get there, I did. And I met wonderful people (in a gorgeous town) who are not only in love with the sci-fi in general, but are great BSG fans.
One of them (since as far as I know he doesn’t have an LJ account I’ll not mention his name without approval) posted one of the group photos earlier this week and it looks just great. (Yes, I started to imagine the one from next year the moment that I saw this one). That not to mention that great video of our Jamie speaking Italian. Btw,If I start rumbling it’s because said video is on the background. Or like.. HERE?

2. BBCA commercials
Every time that my PhD adviser says something about BBC – he’s a big fan – I start smiling like a fool. Those commercials ruined a very serious subject for me.

3. French
The fact that the next movie in which we’ll be able to see Jamie is a French one managed to make me ponder the idea of actually doing something for my oh so neglected French. So, as soon as the thesis is defended, I’ll join classes because knowing innumerable irregular verb at strange tenses is not enough in RL (no matter what my teacher thought).
Just a reminder of the lovely French accent.

This video was uploaded on the JBN channel on youtube by our lovely mods (just like the first one). So, thank you (again) ladies. And sorry - it wasn't my original intention to transform this into a video centered post. It just went away from me.

OMG, I'm glad you reminded me, I was so busy I nearly forgot - found YET ANOTHER Jules Verne fest video I hadn't seen! This is from Canal+:

Enjoy, all! (Maybe I should post this seperately in case people miss it later ;)

Happy Holidays, everyone! And nice work, Asta. ;)

OK, here's my contribution...

Top 5 Bamber-Related Highlights of 2011:

1. Having to maintain a Tumblr account for work opened me up to a whole new realm of nerdity, some of which is Jamie-related; the fact that I can browse for stuff on the work account alleviates the need to have a personal account to do so. Score! And sometimes, it does turn up amazing things:

What?! TOON ARMS. I can't. (artist's page)



4. The continued "adventures" of Captain James Haggard. SO ENTERTAINING. (If you have NO idea what this is about, go back and read this post. :) ). (See also, Tumblr, #1 above.)

5. The fact that being a fan of Jamie's lead me to meet dramaturgca, who I discovered is a fellow L.A. baby with whom I share a whole lot of other interests, and we have hung out a lot and become quite good chums. Also got to see asta77 a couple of times (she lives quite far - damn country is TOO BIG innit? ;) ), and have had some delightful conversations and exchanges with several of you. Yes, I am a sap - all this flailing and wailing wouldn't be fun if it were done in a vacuum. Our regular commenters/posters especially, you people are lubberly. xxx

The continued "adventures" of Captain James Haggard. just made me laugh. I'm currently trying to watch the old seasons of Dr Who so these are just hilarious from that perspective.

And that drawing is just made of win.

Btw, I just saw that I sort of doubled the video post - yours wasn't showing on my brower earlier. So, I'm sorry. Apparently a lot of things happen without my intention tonight.

I love that top one so, so much. I made a sepia tint of it, it's on my home computer... will post it later. ;)

Jamie brings me squee and joy every single day. True, most of it is at Lee Adama Daily, where the love come daily, but there's at least one reference or joke or squee about Jamie every day on Twitter or on my f'list.

Thank you Jamie Bamber News for keeping me up to date with everything Jamie related! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!! <3<3<3<3<3<3

Favourite "new" pic (okay it's not actually new, but it's new to me ;)

Favourite old pic. Because it can't be Christmas without Archie ;)

asta77 From: asta77 Date: December 23rd, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
It's new to me (and zegeekgirl) too! We saw it yesterday when we were approving a membership to the comm. It's amazing we are still discovering stuff after all these years. :)

silly, silly me. I made a whole post with videos and I forgot this one. The party wouldn't be complete without this.

And here's an oldie, but goody......

I don't know if I should be worried that this is one of my favorite Lee Adama pics. I give more credit to the arms than the bloody hands. ;)
