Things We Saw Today: Battlestar Galactica Goes Art Deco

This art deco BSG poster by Sublevel Studios is just plain gorgeous. Check out one more (Cylon!) at Geek-Art.

Do I even need to say it? No. But I want to. Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! By WinterArtwork, available on a t-shirt at RedBubble. (via FashionablyGeek)

  • Remember how Star Wars: The Old Republic was going to allow characters to flirt with NPCs of the same gender? They still are… but only on one planet. *sigh* (Slashdot)
  • TIME brings us the story of Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno, co-hosts of the Dutch TV show Guinea Pigs, who were strapped to machines that gave them simulated labor pains. Now, I don’t speak Dutch, but watching the video I’m gonna assume they didn’t expect the pain to be quiiiite that bad. (via Neatorama)
  • HBO Documentary Films has acquired the US television rights to Pussy Riot -A Punk Prayer, a documentary on the band that premiered at a sold-out screening last Friday at the Sundance Film Festival. (Deadline)

And lastly, courtesy of /Film, here is the first official image from Kick-Ass 2, coming out this June.

    Too much to hope that they’ll cut out the gratuitous rape scene in Kick-Ass 2?

    I do speak Dutch, and I am barely over a minute into that video, and I assure you, it is high-larious.

    I second that ‘what’?

    The comic book has a completely unnecessary rape scene – presumably because the authors think rape is the single worst thing that can ever happen to a woman, and if your woman gets raped, it’s one of the worst things that can happen to you. It’s unnecessary, lacks nuance, and in a comic book that tells an original superhero story, is incredibly cliched.

    Yet another Rape As Backstory trope strikes again, huh. I look forward to seeing this even more bungled in the film adaption, and all the news outlets going “OOH LOOK AT THIS CONTROVERSY” instead of offering insight into the problem.
