Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

She must need the money. Or perhaps the ungodly levels of technobabble she had to recite in Voyager drove her to some kind of rejection of science.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

A (basic option) 2014 Prius costs 30,000.

That's how much Wang used to get paid for a week to make an episode of Voyager.

"Narrating" or voice work, probably wouldn't take longer than a day, if they had her redo a shit load of takes they thought could be done better. But really, three hours work, 2 hour lunch, 3 hours more work and they're probably done.

It's just talking for an hour and 20 minutes, not "acting" for 80 minutes.

And that's if the entire movie is narrated and not filled full of interviews and dramatic recreations, and reality footage of science shit actually happening...

Her entire narration, hello this is what we are about, 6 or 7 30-second joiners between evidence, and then a round up, top off and sign out... That sounds like she is in the movie for 20 minutes.

Most of her time in the recording booth will be waiting for the techs to get shit sorted.

So 5 takes on everything, and that's still less than 2 hours before she can roll out of there with a fist full of cash.

Less investment than a convention.

She is an actress, after all, and selling her voice is part of her bread and butter. DO we really think each actor voicing a car commercial drives that brand?
No, not good enough.....selling out for material crap is one thing but being a voice for cretinism is always repugnant

Patrick Stewart can do "money supermarket" or "Fifa" all he wants but if someone asks him to narrate a documentary called "gays are deviant scum" then i have no doubt that he would tell them to "fuck off"

lets hope she was duped.....fingers crossed (no seriously, i'm slightly terrified about this) i'm hoping it's some kind of April fool

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

I'm sorry, but I really haven't researched this.

I thought there was two options.

1. I was lied to and was too stupid to know what I signed up for until it was too late, I've been railroaded and cheated. Woe is me I am a princess who needs rescuing by a tiny violin player.

Or

2. I don't care who they are, or what they believe in as long as their money is real.

...

Option 2 seems far more logical.

...

However now you are telling me that there is an antihomosexual agenda tacked onto the antiastronomy agenda?

Which gives us different options.

1. No it's true, I really do hate the gays.

2. I was tricked into helping homophobes and I'm not happy about it.

3. I loves the gays, but no one gets inbetween me and my money.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

This makes me think of last summer when there was a great moaning and gnashing of teeth when the OitNB fans "suddenly realized" that Laura Prepon was a Scientologist and started predicting her church would look down on her portrayal of a LESBIAN drug lord. Once word leaked out that her role was to be reduced in season 2, it was taken as fact that Scientology had "gotten" to her and forced her to get out of the show because of all the lesbianism which obviously ran counter to her church's teaching.

It didn't matter the actress was on record saying multiple positive things about the LGBT community or the recent Supreme Court ruling (2013) for gay rights. Nope, she was a Scientologist and had to follow the church elders wherever they might lead. Hell, last night when I searched for new OitNB stories I found yet another season 2 story that brought up the question of her religion and her possibility of being Mrs. Tom Cruise causing her limited exposure in this year's show.

We heard one line from the narration. We don't know what else Kate says or what she "believes".

Could she be a dupe for geocentrists? Of course.

Could she fervently believe in their thesis? Certainly.

Does she secretly harbor the desire to carry a banner for the anti gay, anti-semitic right? Oh my. I'd sooner believe Dick Cheney would hand over Laverne Cox's GLAAD award at next week's ceremony instead of Ellen Page than Mulgrew had become a refugee from a "Red State" living in Gotham.

I suggest we just wait for the "rest of the story" before we take sides.

25% of 2000 Americans asked don't know that the Earth orbits the sun? Holy crap.

The mismatch between the scientific achievements coming from the country and the stupidity of its population, continues to amaze me. The growing strength of religious fundamentalism in politics is frightening. You have to wonder if some day someone who denies the existence of protons and electrons will have the command over the nuclear weapons arsenal.

Some of them might believe an object would fall to Earth from the distance of the moon without burning up. They might be STID fans.

Given that it took Apollo 13 over 60 hours from Moon to Earth, yep that was quite ridiculous.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

The article seems to have been updated to include a statement from one of the scientists:

Krauss said Tuesday morning that he had not willingly participated in the film.

“For all who asked: Some clips of me apparently were mined for movie on geocentricism,” the scientist posted on Twitter. “So stupid does disservice to word nonsense. Ignore it.”
I'm sure the other who are "involved" in the project would say something similar.

Most of us can differentiate between escapist fiction and reality.

So. F... ..f!
