Watch Now: Geeks Go Wild In New Music Video ‘Tonight I’m Frakking You’

A new video from Break.com is making it’s way around the web, and it’s…interesting, to say the very least.

The video is a spoof on the Enrique Inglesias song “Tonight I’m Loving You” dubbed “Tonight I’m Frakking You,” which replaces all the rhythmic sex of an Inglesias video with about as much geek content as humanly possible. No lie, friends, this is an all-geek wildfire, featuring cosplay fun from comic book superheros, Star Wars, Super Mario Brothers, Ghostbusters, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, and more.

You’ll even find a few familiar faces involved like Kunal Nayaar from Big Bang Theory, a brief cameo from BSG alum Richard Hatch, Amy Okuda from The Guild, and the absolute highest of high points of this video: Caprica star Alessandra Torresani as Princess Leia. Yes, that. You should go see. You can hug me later.

Be sure to click on over to the other side now to check out the video for “Tonight I’m Frakking You.”

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Prequel ‘Blood And Chrome’ Casts Its Young Adama

The Movie God   |  @   |

The Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, met its end far too soon despite being a very well-made show. For one reason or another, fans of BSG simply decided not to follow the show as religiously, leading to its untimely fate.

As we were waiting to hear the fate of Caprica from the executives at Syfy, they announced the plans for another spinoff series called Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. The show was to be another prequel, set in between the storylines of BSG and Caprica when William Adama was still a young pilot. We saw a glimpse of this younger Adama in the direct-to-DVD movie (which they should make more of immediately — we miss the real cast), Razor, and fans wondered if the actor that played the youthful future Admiral, Nico Cortez, would be returning for Blood and Chrome. Now we have that answer.

It’s been announced that Cortez will NOT be returning, and that instead an actor by the name of Luke Pasqualino has been cast. In addition to that, it was announced that Ben Cotton has been cast to play the young Adama’s commanding officer. Pasqualino is a 20-year-old actor from England who appeared on the U.K. version of Skins.

Muppets Battlestar Galactica shirtThe $9 t-shirt deal of the day over at Teefury today is the Battlestar Galactica-Muppets mashup “Frakking Awful” by artist Matt Dearden.

The sale at Teefury began at midnight EST (Wednesday, November 24, 2010) and will continue for 24 hours, and once it’s over, it’s gone forever.

The shirt is a mash-up of the heckling Muppets Statler and Waldorf as Commander William Adama and Colonel Saul Tigh of Battlestar Galactica. The Muppets are in their usual theater balcony box seats, but are wearing the BSG military uniforms. Waldorf is sporting an eye patch like the one Tigh wears after the first season of BSG.

The shirt comes in red and is available in both men’s and women’s sizes.

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Character Alignment Chart

BSG Character ChartA Reddit user by the name lolbacon has created a classic 3×3 character alignment chart for Battlestar Galactica that is pretty dead on. For instance, Kara “Starbuck” Thrice represents “chaotic good” while the Adamas represent the rest of the good spectrum. Also, Baltar is “True Neutral,” which is an interesting choice.

While some of the comments from the submission criticized breaking down the rich and vibrant BSG personalities into overly simplistic categories of good, neutral and evil, lolbacon said he sympathized and agreed that the characters are so often varying shades of grey.

“It was pretty difficult to try to pigeonhole them. I just had a weird dream last night about playing a BSG D&D campaign and spent the better part of this morning thinking about how the characters would fall on an alignment chart.”

‘Battlestar Galactica’ & ‘Eureka’ Episodes Added To Netflix Watch Instantly

Battlestar GalacticaNetflix subscribers who have been bored with the selection of streaming media available might take notice of some recent additions to their library, namely Battlestar Galactica.

But for anyone who hasn’t seen the show and has been wanting to start, don’t clear your DVD queue just yet. The first disc of the season 1 set is only available to rent as a DVD for some strange reason. This disc contains the 2-part miniseries that was created prior to being given a green light for a full season. And apparently it counts differently, except for that it’s listed as the official first two episodes of the show now.

The addition of the BSG episodes are part of a deal Netflix struck with NBC to add older content to its library, which also includes over 100 episodes of Saturday Night Live, Eureka, and much more.

Songs For The Geek Soul: Introducing Marian Call & Her ‘Firefly’/’Battlestar Galactica’ Inspired Tunes

We here at Geeks of Doom like to share with you some of the world’s independent artists from time to time. We may not get to do it as often as we’d like to, but when we can it’s always exciting to share with you names and talent that you might not yet know.

Today we want to share with you someone that a lot of you may already be familiar with, but many others will not: Marian Call. Miss Call is an independent singer/songwriter/composer all the way from Anchorage, Alaska. She also happens to be quite the geek, making her the absolute perfect type of artist for us to gush about to you.

Call is on a mission unlike most you will ever see indie musicians undertaking. Her goal is to tour all 50 states, driving to all of them except for Hawaii of course, and without any kind of manager or label handling the mess that is scheduling and setting up shows in every state. No, this isn’t about the tour itself or money or anything musicians tour for; this is all about the music and the joy that it can bring in an intimate setting. Call will not only be playing small venues in all of our states, but many people are even setting up block parties and house concerts for the artist to perform at in certain towns.

Click on over to learn more about Marian Call, where you can hear her work and see her live, and to check out her songs that were inspired by geek-favorites Firefly and Battlestar Galactica!
