I hope you’re as amused as I am that I’m in the Christmas spirit. If not, well…less than two weeks left. Be happy I didn’t turn on the snow option for my blog.
Have a bonus yule log to stream to your TV, Star Wars style. ‘Tis the season and all that.
If that doesn’t work for you, Nick Offerman should do the trick.
As a final offering, I give you Lil’ Bub.
I know everyone’s all hyped up about Star Wars and that’s great and everything.
Star Trek, you guys.
A friend shared the link with me and here are my first impressions. I redacted his comments for privacy/I didn’t ask him if I could post what he said/he was mostly just laughing at me anyways.
well that’s just typical
It looks terrible and great all at the same time
terribly amusing? I hope
I made the mistake of scrolling down in the comments to see people complaining about the score
1. they’ve already used the song for this series, it makes sense
2. omg you weenies, how have you not noticed that this is badass action star trek
Upon further reflection, this is Star Trek after the director has played action movie bingo.
Hanging off a cliff? Got it!
Obviously telegraphed joke? Helloooooooo Bones.
Alien lady who still somehow has the conventional hottie body? Bangin’ like a screen door in a storm!
Loud song? I GOT ME SOME BEASTIE BOYS!!!
Hero gets separated from his bros? All over that!
Bingo! Time to lay down some film and make sweet sci-fi bro love to it.
It promises to be entertaining, but it also doesn’t really look like the Star Trek I grew up watching. I’m going to keep thinking of it the way I have for the previous two movies–this is a Star Trek AU developed by someone who really likes action movies, enjoys high school/college AUs, and enjoys the original but enjoys taking the piss out of Fans even more.
Despite being the person who bitches her way through the 2005 Pride & Prejudice movie because it is wrong wrong WRONG, I have no such compunctions with Star Trek and will no doubt happily pay $30 for my ticket, Twizzlers, bucket of popcorn and vat of soda when it comes out.
Are you looking forward to Star Trek Beyond next summer?
I only had one errand today and I got that out of the way fairly quickly. My family, for a variety of reasons, believes I am a tech guru and phone support queen. As a result, I get to do fun things like help my step-grandpa pick out a smart phone for my grandma who… Continue reading Lazy Sunday
Is Facebook Luring You Into Being Depressed by Chelsea Ward – I don’t know if it’s happening more or if I’m just more aware of it, but I’ve seen a lot of friends take social media breaks lately. I’ve started cutting back on Facebook and I pretty much just use it for the occasional link… Continue reading This Week’s Links
Favorite Song: Favorite food: The free snickerdoodle cookie I was given. I didn’t see it until after I paid and the cashier let me have one after seeing my heart eyes. Yum. Favorite shirt: My new green v-neck Ava & Viv t-shirt from Target. I have so much blue in my wardrobe that it’s nice… Continue reading Friday Faves
You know how it is, you plan on a quick stop inside Target. You only need three, maybe four things. It should all cost $10-20, tops. You get to the register and the $35 Target tax is imposed–somehow at least $35 more of random stuff has made it into your basket. A green t-shirt that’ll… Continue reading Target Rabbithole
