Image of the Day: Bad Art

More bad art! That old chestnut, the disembodied brain in a cyborg body! My classroom notes were coated with these things. I skipped using the Wacom, and drew this with a very modern mechanical pencil while watching the third Andromeda DVD. Here goes my last shred of geek cred, but I’m starting to really like that show. The episode where the captain makes contact with his old girlfriend from 300 years in the future has won me over. It’s cheesy sci-fi time-travelling melodrama at its best. And to think I have four whole seasons to go before I’m caught up!

    I missed the Andromeda series. Where are they showing it? As for the picture, it reminded me of a philosophy class where we were discussing the “Brain in a vat” conundrum.

    Ahh, “Andromeda”. You can almost hear Kevin Sorbo acting.

    I like the picture. You should post a picture of your jack-o-lantern.

    DD: Andromeda is on UPN and/or FOX — like STNG, it went directly into syndication. I find it usually plays anytime on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

    Josh: Is it not cool to like this show? Should I be careful who I mention I love it to?

    While the reliance upon T2-style catch phrases and one-liners is enough to make a sleeping dog groan, some of the concepts (Thank you Gene!) like AI ships, nightsider species, humanoid data ports, and no faster-than-light travel rock my world. First and foremost, humans are NOT the centre of the universe.

    Kevin Sorbo is a ham, but he plays a ham, so it works in my book. The one thing that really gets my goat is how they took the very cool theme song, by Alex Lifeson of Rush, (http://www.andromedatv.com/features/s1_music.html) and replaced it with utter crap. Grrr…
