    Mal's Content

    Malbug_13

    Wtf One of the reasons I created this site was to be able to post original content, especially video captures that people might have missed elsewhere but would like the chance to see.  It's kind of a niche I am trying to carve.  It can be time-consuming, but I enjoy it and I think others do too.

    Which is why it's always a bit disappointing to see those videos show up elsewhere, such as this hot Jamie Bamber capture that turned up weeks later on Fleshbot and other sites, without a hat tip.

    I can easily get over the lack of credit, but I'm sure the people who are kind enough to advertise here would appreciate the extra traffic a behemoth like Fleshbot can drive my way, and theirs.

    Granted, it is my own fault for rushing clips onto The Malcontent without adding some sort of graphic to identify the source, but as Tobias Fünke might say, "I shan't be making that mistake again."

    Bamber on No-Towel-Road

    Malbug_13

    You first saw the stills on Towleroad, and now The Malcontent (as schizoid a blog as ever there was) brings you just a little more: more stills of the nearly naked Jamie Bamber on basic cable's Battlestar Galactica, plus Bamber's star-making video (sampled at just a little higher quality than normal, for no particular reason).

    [Watch video – 6.7mb, 1:19, WMV format]

    And the husband asks why I like sci-fi?  (Click to enlarge.)

    Bamber's Member: If a genie gave me three wishes, one would surely be for Time Warner Cable to switch the Sci-Fi Channel over to high definition!
