Boomer is a bitch!
Ok so I'm sitting here transcribing some of the interviews that are about to go up here as well as watching some seriously twisted shit courtesy of Ichi the killer, when it occurs to me how necessary it is to point out that Boomer from the original Battlestar galactica is a BITCH! For real.
So I was at Wondercon, complete with recorder, camera, and press badge, ready to give the love to all types of nergitude. And who do I see but Boomer. Now let's be clear, when I was a kid and I got my first wallet it had some bullshit identification card in it. The id card asked for a nickname. After a particularly embarrassing incident earlier in my life regarding, superman, aliases, and my black power mother, I decided to give myself a nickname based off a black person. That nickname was Boomer. So this is the type of excitement I'm feeling walking up to this man.
Me: Hello sir. I write for an online magazine called Afrogeeks and I was wondering if I might be able to do an interview with you later.
Boomer: (sounding like a bitch) Well we will have to see about it when the time comes. If I'm not busy...
I look to the left, I look to the right, nobody. I look to the left, nobody. I mean no one was giving a shit about dude. I thanked him for his time and left him with his book and his severe lack of love. Word to the wise for old black TV stars, Don’t piss off your afrogeek fans.
