It’s Leonard Nimoy Day
On this day, March 26, in the year 1931, Leonard Nimoy was born. He would have been 85. While he was here, he ruled. Absolutely. Some say he still does.
Merry Christmas: Make It So
Got the video wrong the first time…not that the other one, included below, isn’t good as well. See, this one is good, too
I’m A Geek–Go Ahead, Say Something About It….
The great thing about being a closet geek who is the size of an NFL nose tackle–I can get all jazzed up about a tweet like this and nobody is going to say a godsdamned thing about it..this time, a year from now, and we’ll know if my excitement is justified. http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2015/06/30/star-trek-3-beyond-justin-lin-first-picture/29502195/

One of the coolest unconventional American cars ever made…the 64 Buick Riviera…and the coolest “pointy-eared Devil” to ever grace the screen. (Continuing my weekend of Leonard Nimoy tribute-themed posts begun here.) The New York Times did one of the most comprehensive Nimoy pieces thus far.

Christmas…The Final Frontier
or “Scotty, we need that eggnog now.”
I Think The Atlanta Falcons Are A Klingon Front

I admire how they hide in plain sight. Note the logo–they think we’re so damned obtuse, flaunting it like that. I can’t be the first one to notice this.…
Drop Everything…And Watch This Video Now.
Neko Case has everything. She’s a fantastic songwriter, a phenomenal singer, has a great sense of humor, and–sorry–is super hot in a plain old it’s no big deal casual UN-self-conscious way. She makes a mean borscht, lives on a farm with about 24 pianos in the barn, and is pretty much Queen of The Galaxy. …
