Sep. 25th, 2005 @ 05:02 pm It's All About The Hair!
Hey there! ::waves:: Joined here a couple of days ago, think it's a great idea, and god knows, i am lazy!
My squee for today is about all the hair long, beautiful hair of our beloved SGA members.

Have you ever seen such a well coiffed team of soldiers and scientists before? I mean, come on, G.I. Joe was a real American hero and all that, but his hair and beard looked like those magnetic lead shavings from a cheapo version of an etch-o-sketch. Let's go down the list, shall we?

John Sheppard: If I had known fly-boys could look like that, I would have signed up a long time ago for flying lessons! Each spiky strand has a life of it's own, as if to say look at me, I'm somethin, ain't I! Elizabeth has to pretty much cross her arms or clasp her hands together in the front everytime she and John are together just to keep from running her fingers through those strands that tempt and taunt her at every opportunity. If only scientists could replicate the staying power of those spikes which lay down for nothing, be it fighting the Wraith or guarding his geeks.

Elizabeth Weir: Lizzie, Lizzie. There have been some hits and misses throughout the past 2 seasons. How flat and straight they tried to make your do in the beginning, as if a diplomat and leader couldn't have the sexay look and be effective. Granted, she was living under layers of ice in Antarctica, whale blubber conditioner just wasn't doing it. Thank goodness Atlantis freed up Liz and her curls so she could do the hotmonkeysexonherdesk leadership thing with John. She is also not afraid to just let her hair go during crisis situations. The siege I,II,III come to mind. You go, girl!

Rodney McKay: ooh, even his hair is snarky, short and to the point. Dark, sable brown, primed or not primed, always looking good. What receding hairline? He would simply tell you in that arrogant tone that there's a reason for that, no doubt so more oxygen can get to the smartest brain known in the two galaxies. Has anyone noticed that his sideburns are Star Fleet standard? SQUEEEEEEE!

Carson Beckett:: His hair just kills me! How does Rodney stand to be near him without wanting to touch that sleek, shining pelt? The way the sides are brushed forward over the ears, the top in an upsweep that says, 'Hey, I'm a doctor. I'm quirky but I care and like to look good while doing it'. Not that it, people. ::rolls eyes:: Remember the scene in Poisoning the Well where he's sitting at the microscope and tilts his head to scratch at the back where his hair lovingly meets his neck...his neck...um yeah, that's a different post, innit. The beard. Another post. Carson's hair in one word. RAR!

Teyla Emmagen: Wow, apparently running from the Wraith and living on a steady diet of nuts, berries and whatever you kilt that day does wonders for the tresses. Who knew? First season Teyla was a fairytale princess, all Rapunzel with the long, flowing tresses cascading to her waist, which then proceeded to get shorter as the days went on. Now her look says 'yes, I'm still wearing midriff baring shirts and i can still kick your ass but now i can pull my look together in half the time it used to take.' Classy and cute executive warrior-leader stylin.

Ronon Dex: Where running from the Wraith, living on nuts, berries and whatever you kilt that day does not work for the hair. The dreads fit him to a tee, goes slammin with the pimp coat and my little wraith tasseled sword. If this were Andromeda, they would find that Dex was the genetic equivalent of what happens when reggae meets hula. One can only hope that Teyla will be in charge of hair care when they start popping out little Xenas and Chewbaccas.

Radek Zelenka: mmmm...Radek. His hair takes me to a happy place where there's love songs from the old country, the sound of violins and that cute little way he has of pushing up his glasses. Ever notice how his hair starts out tame in an ep then proceeds to get fluffier with each passing moment. No doubt from running his hands through it, trying not to choke the life out of Rodney.

Steven Caldwell: Well. Okay, moving on.

Major Lorne: Even the new guy looks good! Are folks chosen not only for their mad skillz but also teh hair? Is there some sort of training that goes on before you're assigned to Atlantis? How to use gun oil for the frizzies? MREs as a mega-hold styling product. Heating your knife and using it as a curling iron. Aw, who cares? He's short and damn cute and that's good enough for me.

So that's my introductory squee. I hope i haven't scared anyone off with this because i know y'all think obsess about this stuff too. *looks at you all shifty eyed* And despite the length, I really am lazy so thanks to all the other lazy, squeeing folks that hang here!

This calls for the bed hair icon! I wonder how many vital things get left behind on Earth due to all the cargo space reserved for the more-vital hair products.

Nice icon! I think alot gets left behind. And the part they don't show on the eps is SGA teams offering to trade not only for zedpms but hair care products.

hair squee - yes definetly overdue. *g*

mmmm...Radek. His hair takes me to a happy place where there's love songs from the old country

Agreed. It's so 'absent minded professory' and looks incredibly soft. ...would love to run my fingers through it.......(sorry, back now)

And yep all the female roles have great hair: Weir, Teyla, Heightmeyer, Cadman, the wraith. :D

Yes, i think Radek's hair would be as soft as the down on a baby chick and would give hours of pleasure from running your fingers through it. Atlantis must schedule time for haircare on their duty rosters. LOL.

Have you ever seen such a well coiffed team of soldiers and scientists before?

have you never watched Star Trek TNG? :P

there was a series of books which had TOG (The Old Generation) and TNG sharing the Enterprise, with much sarcasm being expressed over the amount of power required for all TNG's hair dryers.

I have! But for some reason their hair does nothing for me. Unlike our little hotties over there at SGA. *g* I'll have to check out that series of books just for the snark.

Thanks, this made me smile! And giggle inanely. And snort. And think of Carson's interesting choice in facial hair...;-)

I happen to like Carson's perma-stubble. Though I think the producers just wanted something to distinguish him visually from the other male characters who are white, have light-colored eyes, and have brown hair.

*squees, flails, and falls out of chair*

I am of the firm belief that Sheppard's hair (known as The Hair to my friends and me *g*) should get its own place in the opening credits...

You make me happy, you and your hairful squee. That Starfleet regulation thing made my whole day! Also, contemplating any part of Radek Zelenka pretty much leads to the following:

*contemplates* ... HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM *bg*

Aw, you are so welcome! I'm glad to share my love of all teh pretteh and the hair squee. Because, really, how could you not love all that hairlust going on? The Starfleet sideburns get me every freakin time I see Rodney onscreen. I just want to touch them (and more;)Good to know other people appreciate that too.

Radek. *contemplates along with you* Verra,verra nice. A good way to spend the day. *ggg*

If I were on the show, I'd be hard pressed from keeping myself from touching everyone's hair...

*nods* and the shirts, the hero jackets, Carson's stethoscope, the thigh straps....um. Sorry, got carried away there. *g* Amazingly wonderful is the perfect way to describe it!
