Battlestar opening theme

I think one reason the show has gained such cult like popularity is the opeining song.   listen to this.   the one at the bottom is my favorite.  its mezmorizing when you watch it in real life.

 

  I guess he wasn’t into the italian so much here are the actuall lyrics and translation.

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreniyaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt

One possible translation of the Sanskrit into English reads:

O earth, atmosphere, heaven:
May we attain that excellent glory of Savitr the God:
So may he stimulate our prayers.

 

    I like this one.

The Battlestar Galactica

My newest tangent is this little beauty of a show. I only vaguely remember the original show back in the 70’s. I do remember that haunting red beam that would go back and forth so slowely in the centurions eye. I started season one about 3 weeks ago and have watched them all up until the real time episodes. You can buy the seasons on DVD at walmart or download them from itunes. At itunes it 1.99 per episode. This show is full of theology; even more so than star wars. Rumor has it that the original writer/creator was a Mormon and you can defiantly tell.
