This is a trilogy of vids reclaiming BSG's mythology, theology and mysticism and the interconnected women at the center of it all.  These vids together attempt to present the Opera House from various angles and to capture what it meant to and for different women. Post-finale and its profane Opera House, they also collectively present a reconceptualization of the Opera House as the intersection between life and death and between human and Cylon, representing hybridity in infinite variations: intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical. The third vid, especially, is based on edits made by Battlestar Redactica, a fan-edited alternate 4.5 by [livejournal.com profile] cvm_productions. See here for a short explanation of edits relevant to and relied on by the vid and here for a textual explanation of all this, outlined by [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria, my compatriot in all this Opera House reclaiming.

You will lead them all to their end. End of line.  )

Painting Declared Fraud
By John Sowell

The recently discovered painting proclaimed to be the last piece by Monclair, the Colonial painter, was proven a fake today. Two weeks ago the painting was recovered from reappropriated personal property. The title, Once Upon a Time Where They Live Life Fast and They Scared of Dark, was written on the back of the canvas in what appeared to be red crayon. Before further investigation, news of the painting circulated. A minor faction of a religious group of oracles of the Lords of Kobol hailed it as a prophecy soon come to pass. A former art professor offered his services in the investigation, which yielded an unexpected result. A disappoint to the parties involved, the paints were found to contain chemicals not present in those manufactured before the Cylon attack. Monclair's only known surviving artwork is in the office of William Adama aboard the Galactica. He could not be reached for comment.

Cylon War, Monclair

Title: Tomorrow -20: What kind of world?
Storyboards: cyborganize
Editor: beccatoria
Spoilers: Through 4.01 He That Believeth In Me.
Precis: [livejournal.com profile] cyborganize and [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria were created by man other humans. They rebelled. They evolved. And they have a plan.

Which is to steal video footage from the latest Battlestar Galactica episode and audio from the Prelinger Archives and create our own archive of 30 second deadly serious crack vids that will catalogue the season against the backdrop of our own technological history.

Or, less pretentiously, look! It's thirty seconds of BSG to 1950s sponsored movies! It's awesome!
