Remember that thing I said about ‘want’ bells in the previous post? They’re ringing even harder for the object in the pic above, which tells me a great deal about why I’ll never be a fashion bunny: I can picture myself balking at the idea of forking over $1500 for shoes/clothes, but for a replica of Starbuck’s pet bird*? My money is yours, or it would be if I had any, followed by a lifetime of “my preciousssss!!"-style gloating over my lovely new toy. 
*It’s not just Starbuck. I’d do the same for the replica models of Apollo, Kat, Raygun and Husker’s- the last of which is signed by Edward James Olmos himself!!!- Vipers. 
PS: EDWARD JAMES OLMOS IS FOLLOWING ME ON TWITTER!!!!!!
PPS: (after calming down) it looks like he follows everyone who follows him…..20,000+ people. So much for feeling special…
PPPS: Re: Vipers, check out this video of Katee talking about the model Viper *contains spoilers for Season 2 and beyond*

Sometimes I think I’m still a teenager, if the extent of my continued fangirl tendencies is anything to go by.
And I don’t care what the TWoP Miniseries reviewer said (disgruntled fans of the original —-> automatic discounting of their words), having this girl play Starbuck just made the new series for me and gave me a new appreciation of just why putting genre works into the “weird stuff” ghetto sucks (I already saw that with Buffy's repeated snubbings for creative Emmys, but BSG wasn't even a 'teen' show).

I would wear these with pride, no lie. Despite their flaws, I love all the crew of the Galactica, and Starbuck most of all.

Oh my Gods how did I miss this last year? It’s Katee Sackhoff in a Spanish national team football jersey! (which in my head——-> Starbuck supports Spain!)

Just look at this badass crew. (source) This happy badass crew, this band of…(‘brothers’ isn’t exactly the word I look for) 
Side note: I’m a bit new to this tumblr jig, but apparently there are lots of BSG fans on tumblr? Hello, then- it might look a bit funny, me posting stills of Starbuck in between fashion and art picspam, but I love them both, I really do.
I’m even a bit glad the re-imagined series is low on fashion statements and “ironic” value so it’ll (hopefully, keeping my fingers crossed) never turn into the kind of thing Jezebel writers/wannabe Jezebel writers like to fanwank over.

Oxygen deprivation isn’t a laughing matter, but I still love the sight of a giggly not-drunk Starbuck (and that the scene involved my OTP too, ha).

And I’ll admit it, I hate when reboots tamper with the original, but any deluded fan of the original Battlestar Galactica who’s had kittens over the new Starbuck being a girl is missing out IMO.

1. I can’t remember a bigger popular-media-generated void in my life than the one I got right after Season 4 ended.
2. I may as well admit it here, this episode came within a whisker of making me cry.
