  1. https://www.rosemont.com/theatre/events/william-shatner-live-screening-of-the-star-trek-ii-wrath-of-khan/ Going to see this. Should be sweet!
  2. Ooh, thanks, @Nick. I’ll see if I can make a date night happen.
  3. Yeah, both were bad, but the newer one was terrible. My siblings and I loved The Jim Henson Hour, though. I always had the clear impression that Bert and Ernie were kids, and vaguely assumed they were brothers.
  4. I’ll be interested to see what the faneditors can do with the picture.
  5. Such a shame that it was a financial flop. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a great setup for sequels. I was more enthusiastic about that prospect than anything else they are doing.
  6. Coming up with fan theories is fun! Bashing other peoples’ fan theories is also fun!
  7. Do you mean fan theories about how the Prequels are actually genius?
  8. I loved all the “dramatic” scenes when you see all the bridge officers looking around giving each other “meaningful glances,” and you’re like, who?? are all these people?????
  9. Things I really like: Treating “All Good Things…” as a sort of backdoor pilot, giving the new series a grounding in something familiar that feels right. The idea of using Galaxy both in terms of branding (we have Abrams’ Enterprise-A and Discovery’s Enterprise already being used in other productions so let’s avoid that… but Galaxy immediately and non-awkwardly connotes the Enterprise-D of TNG). Things I’m not sure I would go with: The young captain who dies — too like Decker from TMP (but maybe it’s better than rehashing Riker from TNG) Time travel/anomalies/traps — please, would an exploration/contact mission be too much to ask?
  10. Yeah. Tolkien is obviously not underrated as a writer of English fictional prose and poetry and as a scholar and an essayist and an inventor of languages, but he was absolutely a master as an all-around aesthete, too. His maps and paintings and sketches and jacket designs are something special. Pair that with quality binding, and you have quite the physical prize. I have been slowly collecting quality hardcovers from the 60s-90s (the 30s-50s editions are more or less out of my reach), and they’re all very, very nice. Too bad he never tried his hand at musical composition, really. Though there is a recording of him singing “The Stone Troll” to an old English folk tune; and the vocal line of “Namárië” from The Road Goes Ever On (song cycle by Donald Swann) is by all accounts more or less Tolkien’s own musical idea. Oh, and this!
