Skunkgal - Too Much Skunk In Your Junk

star trek review

instead of slumming it with b-list celebrities, journos, and politicians at the white house correspondents dinner saturday night, i went ahead and watched star trek instead.

awesome decision.

it’s been a long time since i’ve visited any of the star trek franchise (probably nemesis? 2002?), but like any good historical fiction, it has me scouring trek fan sites and wikipedia trying to piece together the mythology i’ve mostly forgotten. without giving away any plot points, this is mostly not important for the understanding of the movie, but it was just so good that i wanted to remind myself of why i ever liked trek in the first place.

that being said, non-trek fans should still see this film. unlike the 10 before, this is not a “star trek movie.” it’s a solid movie that happens to have star trek characters in it.

not too shabby, jj abrams. but i’m still not going to watch lost.

spam attack

my blog is under a comment spam attack currently. this is mostly annoying b/c i open my email up and it tells me i have (12) messages and that i am cool. then i look and realize that 8 are spam notifications, 2 are google alerts, one is an amazon suggestion, and the last is a reply from my father telling me he’s mailed that allergy medication. this is pretty much a small devastation every time.

btw, i know it’s spam b/c the comments are like “Great site!” and “Nice post!” now if these were real comments, they wouldn’t be as tame as these. i like to think my comments run along the lines of: “omg you’re such an idiot” and “this is the funniest thing i’ve read EVAAAAAA.” on skunkgal, hyperbole rules.

also, anyone who knows me knows that part of me dies inside when exclamation points are used without irony. none of my real friends/readers would ever do that to me, and even if they tried they should know that i know what they’re doing. got that?

in conclusion, i still have NOTHING TO BLOG ABOUT, except for the fact that barack obama is apparently a star trek fan and that when he met leonard nimoy, he flashed him the vulcan sign. i’m not so sure about this “change” nonsense, but if the man watched DS9, i’ll lose my skepticism and follow him to the end of the earth (or, ahem, the final frontier).
