I just finished watching the one they posted today - there were a lot of Firefly-esque "found motion" shots of the Destiny...

I noticed that, too. Apparently that's the wave of the future. :-)

I mean, it looks quite nice, so I don't really mind, but the combination of far shot to quick zoom-in to whip-pan the ship back into frame they used when Destiny was slingshotting off the planet was straight out of the final battle above Mr. Universe's planet in Serenity.

Then again, Star Wars: Episode 2 used quite a bit of the same motion, so I can't really say Firefly coined the effect, but I like Firefly a lot better than Star Wars these days, so that's the first thing I thought of when I saw the computer-generated shaky-cam. :wink:

Agreed. The new Battlestar Galactica used it copiously, as well. But it's definitely a shot we haven't seen in Stargate before.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I got a Level 7 in a speaking assessment where I delivered a speech about the barmyness of the EU and Fibre-To-The-Premises. No one had a clue what I was talking including my teacher but I got a decent level for it considering my legs started to shake as I gave that speech but something was bound to happen with my lack of confidence but at least it wasn't stuttering! :oops:

What's barmyness?

This word doesn't even show up in my online dictionary.. :?

:lol: Sorry. I just realized that it isn't even a word although what I meant to say was barmy.

I just completed my homework which I consider to be a practice version of the "Science in the News" exam which I'll have to do some time this academic year.

2nd piece of joy: We finish school early tomorrow! :D Hurray for open evenings!

No different than the Anti-Pyrochild Rebellion (or the Anti-Rubrica Rebellion, for that matter)

So that ridiculous, nonsensical bug in Curves+ that's been driving me insane is fixed. How did I fix it? No idea. I was in the process of adding some diagnostic code to figure out where the problem was coming from, but somehow it fixed it. I really don't understand, but at least it's fixed! *knock on wood*

You what? :D

the Anti-Pyrochild Rebellion

I have no memory of this.

Allow me to refresh your memory:

In the dark ages, before I was a mod...

The Anti-Pyrochild Rebellion. (the original seems to be lost to the forum gremlins)

The Anti-Rubrica Rebellion.
