Faux Klingons In The White House

Politicians are getting sillier and sillier. First tubes and now Wu and his Klingons. How does this guy expect anyone to take him seriously anymore?

from Trek Today:

The "Klingons in the White House" controversy continued this week when Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and George Takei (Sulu) both spoke on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, poking fun at the idea that they have never gotten past their celebrity as Star Trek stars.

The web site of Comedy Central has video of the phoned-in appearances, while has a partial transcript. The discussion concerned remarks by Democratic Congressman David Wu of Oregon, who had likened President Bush's foreign policy team to Star Trek's warlike Klingons (story).

In response to Wu's demand that Congress not let false Klingons send real Americans to war, host Jon Stewart responded, "I believe the Constitution specifically states that only real Klingons have that power." He then called upon "Senior Star Trek Analogy Analyst" Nimoy, who feigned impatience with his ongoing association with Spock and then spent several minutes explaining that Wu's analogy was weak, citing details of the episode "Amok Time" to describe the differences between Klingons and Vulcans.

Nimoy's monologue was interrupted by a call from Takei, who objected when Stewart warned that he was already speaking to Nimoy by demanding, "And you felt his telephone voice was more distinctive than mine? Do you realize by our sixth film, I'd become a captain, while Spock had become marginalized?"

The entire segment featuring Nimoy and Takei may be watched at Comedy Central.

The clip on the Daily Show is hilarious. You have to check it out.

Thank You Bruce Campbell

After many weeks on the road and countless encounters at conventions, Bruce Campbell recently did a public service announcement for many of his unwashed fans. Take his advice people, it's Bruce Campbell, he knows what he's talking about.


It was an actual commercial?

btw... didn't you just love the tacky sofa noise when he got up and sat down? Classic.

Smallville: Tonight We Get Justice!!!

Program the TiVo boys, the time has come. I've been looking forward to this episode for weeks! It's finally here, tonight!
When Lex's Level 33.1 project comes to fruition, Oliver Queen (Green Arrow) must bring together several of Clark's "heroic" super-powered allies together: Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Bart Allen (Flash), and Victor Stone (Cyborg).

I think I'm going to bring it down a notch so I won't be dissappointed if it's not a good episode.

Stargate Atlantis: Carson Beckett

I "flew" up to Canada a couple of days ago and saw the most recent episode of Stargate: Atlantis. If you know what I'm talking about, don't spoil it here but know that I'm upset at this turn of events. We all knew that something was "up" because of the character because of the Saving Carson Beckett campaign. The episode is called Sunday. It's beautifully done and despite the outcome, the episode should win an award.

That's all I'll say.

Yes, I'm a Slacker

It took me some time to come out of holiday slack mode. Now that the new shows are starting to air, I feel the life coming back into me.

That and I'm totally addicted to Second Life.

Happy New Year!

It's been a crazy and fun holiday season for me. As soon as I sober up, I'll do a "2006 Reflection/ 2007 Projection" post. :)

For now, Happy New Year!
