SciFiWire: Bryan Singer (X Men) directing new BSG film imagining…

Not the BSG cast. Another new imagining of the original show, this time in feature film form. Seems no one can get financing to do anything original anymore.  I am always happy when SciFi/Fantasy films get into production. Bryan Singer is also a great producer, witness House, M.D. which I love, Interview with Singer on hiring Hugh Laurie for the role here

SciFiWire has the scoop, (go see their prior reports at their link)

Entertainment Weekly is confirming a story—first reported by HitFix‘s Drew McWeeny (and passed on by SCI FI Wire yesterday)—that Bryan Singer will produce and direct a new film version of Battlestar Galactica for Universal Pictures.

Here’s how the magazine somewhat condescendingly reports the news without giving credit where it’s due:

Universal Pictures has confirmed blog speculation that Bryan Singer, director of Valkyrie, will take on directing and producing duties for a BSG movie. Glen Larson, who created original series back in 1978, will produce as well. The film is not expected to be a continuation of current popular television show that’s running on the Syfy network but will be a complete re-imagining of the sci-fi lore that was invented by Larson back in the ’70s.

Les Paul passes away…

God Bless. He rocked the world. The inventor of multitrack recording also…

94 years rockin

….Paul influenced scores of musicians in the worlds of rock and jazz. One of them was Steve Miller. Back in 1948, Miller’s father struck up a friendship with Paul when the guitarist was visiting Milwaukee for a date at a local club.

“Les and Mary showed me my first chords,” Miller told the Journal Sentinel. “He’s such a great player, everytime I go to New York I go to the club and jam with Les. There’s just this vibe around him. It’s always a jam session and all the cats are always there.”

Aside from making rock-and-roll possible with his creation of the electric guitar, Paul also contributed immensely to the advance of studio recording over the years with inventions like multitrack recording, reverb, and more than a dozen others.

Paul McCartney once said this of Paul: “Les was one of the greatest innovators in recording techniques,” McCartney said in a statement. “The work he put into developing the guitar that was named after him made the instrument an all-time classic, and his incredible playing skills make him one of the masters of the instrument.”

In 1990 Capitol honored him with a boxed set “Les Paul the Legend and the Legacy.” The 4 CD box contained liner notes by Paul himself and 34 never before released tracks….

Update: WRAL says yes he will admit paternity…Is John Edwards trying to rehab his image via the Grand Jury?

Update: 8/13: AceHQ has a confirmation tweet up from WRAL TV which indicates Mickey Kaus NAILED IT and this entire Grand Jury appearance was his lead up to a public penance.   I say go away, far away, far, far away.

Just a tweet:

WRAL-TV reports that former presidential candidate John Edwards will admit he is the father of his former mistress’ 18-month-old daughter.

8/11: Lies and the lying liars who tell them. Breck Boy makes me ILL. REALLY ILL. He had NO BUSINESS in our primary when he KNEW Rielle was out there. Frakkin hypocrite with his Two Americas living in his 140k sf house making a living off med mal suits and having a babymomma while allowing TOTUS to use him as a stalking horse to draw primary voters away from Hill. And Elizabeth enabled him period.

Reminds me of an Alice in Chains song…..maaaan in the box….buried in his shxt…..

Money quote from Mickey Kaus:

…overlook the less sensational, but still damning truth–which is that he’d been cheating on his cancer stricken wife after basing his campaign in large part on his faithfulness….

From KausFiles via Instapundit:

…But now there is a credible rumor of a similar PR sleight of hand in the works that would, in theory, allow Edwards to slink away from his (hypothetical) guilt on the issue the paternity tests would have resolved. It would go like this (I’m paraphrasing):

When the grand jury investigating Edwards on campaign finance charges (e.g., did he illegally use campaign money to pay Hunter?) comes back with “not sufficient to press charges,” Edwards will in short order admit it’s his kid. The idea is that the grand jury’s “insufficient evidence” finding will start refurbishing his image, and that this news will overwhelm his admission of paternity (even though he specifically denied paternity was even possible** in his BS-riddled 2008 Nightline “confession”).

It’s just a rumor, remember!

Any former Breck Boy supporters thinking of falling for this line, recall this, just ONE of the numerous hypocritical moments post Primary 2008, (and of course I will never forgive them for ‘endorsing’ Obama when Hill had her nightly interviews scheduled to celebrate her kickaxx wins in KY WVA the night before, frakkers.)..:

**–Exact quote: “I would welcome participating in a paternity test. Be happy to participate in one. I know that it’s not possible that this child could be mine because of the timing of events, so I know it’s not possible. Happy to take a paternity test, and would love to see it happen.” [Emphasis added] Transcript here. 4:50 P.M.

Here is Mr ‘Two Americas’ saying the Trial Lawyers are somehow not a lobbying arm, yeah mkay John go tell that shxt to someone who cares…
