    I don't know about major symphony concerts, but Babylon 5 music has been heard in other places. For example, Iron Savior's "Condition Red" album (2004): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nts-ijDNNaQ

      We here at ISN hope our viewers have had a great Easter or a great weekend if they don't celebrate. This edition of Babylon 5 pictures in Krakow will feature pictures our reporter took during Easter.

      We start with this picture of stones in the pattern of the Centauri hairstyle. The picture is taken in a park that is half the length of the station.

      There were also two Drazi-colored shops. This flower shop and this place that mainly sells books, movies and games.

      Our reporter also visited the Easter market on the main square and bought these wooden Drazi Easter eggs.

      • Wow, you've got Drazi all over Krakow, don't you? Hope they don't have one of their periodic battles...

          Once I started spotting the purple/green stuff I can't stop.

            Welcome back to our program featuring Babylon 5 pictures for Krakow.

            A few mornings ago our reporter discovered Shadow influences in her kitchen. The late discovery is either because of programming by the first ones or because she's had the cup for about a year and half before seeing a Shadow ship.

            As is tradition we also have a Drazi picture, this time of some lilacs in the same park as the Centauri stones are in.

              Your viewers want to know if your Shadow cup makes a screaming noise when you pour hot liquid into it!

                If you had that cup for so long beforehand, you should have been screaming to Mr. Endawi that you'd seen a *bunch* of those mysterious ships!

                • When I yesterday was a bit tv-zapping (before I got to bed)
                  I reached a music channel and suddenly stumbled over a known face: VIR!

                  He didn't wave to Mr.Morden but used a hand extinguisher. ;-)

                      No screaming so far. Maybe it's asleep.

                      Maybe next time. It's been a while since I watched Matters of Honor.




                      The spam in the introduction forum reminded me of when I went to the cinema this spring. One of the trailers was about the new King Arthur movie, and I sat there thinking of A Late Delivery from Avalon.

                        As you've noticed, much of the spam has to do with bootleg viewing of things coming up or currently being pirated. Recently there was a spate of 'Watch WWE...' spam and my mind went to 'War Without End', not wrestling.

                          Hahah! That's awesome.

                          • While looking for something else I came across a youtube video that had "B5" in that combination of letters and numbers at the end of the link.

                            • This thread is the closest fit for what happened to me today.

                              I was wearing one of my #FreeBabylon5 shirts today when I went to Subway for lunch and a man behind the counter asked me if it was about the TV show. Naturally I was happy to say yes. A bit later he came to my table and we talked about B5 and JMS' comics and such when I asked him if he'd seen Sense8 yet. My jaw nearly dropped when told me that no, he'd read what it was about and decided to not watch it because (and yes, this is a real quote) "...it'd make me pay attention and think."

                              I mean...why bother with JMS' work if you don't want to pay attention and think and feel??? And he was quite knowledgeable about JMS' work. I was stunned.

                                You'd be surprised how many people I know really do stick their heads in the sand. I tend to quote another of my favorite writers, Lisa Shearin:

                                "Whoever said ignorance is bliss must have died a horrible death with a really surprised look on his face."
