I have to admit, I'm already behind schedule, I haven't watched anything on this list... but I've been meaning to see Chronicle. Anyone see that one yet?

Did you know they are re-making Total Recall? I'm actually looking forward to this one.

Get your ass to Mars! I love that movie.

Anyone up for a bit of horse riding?

Why art is important


Baldwin: Art has to be a kind of confession. I don't mean a true confession in the sense of that dreary magazine. The effort, it seems to me, is: if you can examine and face your life, you can discover the terms with which you are connected to other lives, and they can discover, too, the terms with which they are connected to other people.

This has happened to everyone of us, I'm sure. You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discovered it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that he is alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important.

Most of us, no matter what we say, are walking in the dark, whistling in the dark. Nobody knows what is going to happen to him from one moment to the next, or how one will bear it. This is irreducible. And it's true for everybody. Now, it is true that the nature of society is to create, among its citizens, an illusion of safety; but it is also absolutely true that the safety is always necessarily an illusion. Artists are here to disturb the peace.

Interviewer: Artists are here to disturb the peace?

Baldwin: Yes, they have to disturb the peace. Otherwise, chaos.

Man, those were the good old days...

Don't worry, time will solve that problem for you.

Oh, you say I sound a little bitter? Well, so's ya face.

Fashion is a form of ugliness...

Book Review: Doomsday World (Star Trek: The Next Generation #12)


Doomsday World (Star Trek: The Next Generation #12) by Carmen Carter, Michael Jan Friedman, Peter David, Robert Greenberger

Rating: 2/5

While reading this I complained about a lot of OOC'ness (out of character) going on. Worf is portrayed as basically an animal who wants to kill everyone who looks shady and Geordi is being a baby. At one point he's crying and then he shouts at Data, "Shut up! Just shut up, Data! You think you know every damned thing in the world..."

But I realize the problem. This book was written in 1988, while The Next Generation was just in their first or second season. So the show was still young and the characters weren't exactly the people I fell in love with (they needed a couple seasons to be flushed out a bit more). So I can't blame the writers (this was actually a collaborative effort between four Star Trek authors) too much.

With that said, this novel was just OKAY. Not terribly boring but not that compelling either.

I recently tweeted, "When we argue about women's reproduction rights in 2012, I know we are that much further from making first contact with the Vulcans." [see here]

Seriously, this entire discussion some politicians are having is setting us back! For the record, we already agreed:
  1. a woman's body = private
  2. birth control = good
  3. abortion = legal
 Why are we revisiting this? I swear I was truly born too soon, we'll never explore the galaxy.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming...

I don't know what happened... I guess you can call it a "funk" but I didn't have the desire to update my blog anymore. Well, "anymore", isn't the right word, I guess "for a while" would be a better word choice. I still browsed the web and had random thoughts I wanted to share on this blog but when it came to downloading/uploading the images or writing up something I just couldn't be bothered with doing it. Ugh, I don't know... I guess it "be's" like that sometimes.

Anyway, I'm back!

Random but I got a Harry Potter wand for Christmas and did you know J.K. Rowling is writing a new "adult" book which will be released later this year? There is just SO much to talk about... I'll try to play catch up and post a lot to make up for my absence (if anyone even noticed.... besides Kam, a blog friend, who actually email me).

Valentine's Day is coming...

The best way to say I love you... with the bold truth.

$9.99 buy here (but too expensive in my humble opinion, you better print this picture, cut it out and stick it on some card stock... oh wait, that might be illegal or something, but I'm sure your love one won't rat you out.)

Welcome to the Jedi Gym


My favorite line - "Let me tell you something about Han Solo, that ship was mine! He won it off ME in a card game." - Lando Calrissian guy

I would totally join the Wizard/Harry Potter gym (watch the video until the end to know what I'm talking about)... but honestly, the Jedi Gym is much cooler.
