    EARTH—Gore's son Kal-Al is faster than a speeding Prius,
    stronger than the EPA's Superfund program, and able to leap
    mountains of red tape in a sin...

    New Demo Reel for Gina

    I put this together to try and learn a new editing interface and we're planning to use it at least for a little while. Special thanks, as always, to Shane over at X-ile and everyone at Panic Struck Productions.

    Random Star Trek reference

    That scene is from the episode "Arena" and the name of the planet they are on is "Cestus 3".
    That was the Gorn episode.
    The episode and the now famous rock where Kirk fights the Gorn were also briefly featured in "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey"
    Also the script was based on a short story by Fredric Brown.


    Look, I'm really sorry! Okay? . . . I can't help it.

    My old friend Dave sent this over, blame him.

    The Man in Charge - update

    I have uploaded the movie so it can now be seen on Spike:

    and on Atom Film:

    Weekly Quotes

    Patrick on the election poll questions:
    “Where do they get these questions? ‘Who looks better in a sailor hat?’”

    Patrick on the movie “The Wild Geese”:
    “Richard Burton, Roger Moore and Richard Harris join forces to overthrow an African dictator – right after this scotch.”

    “Are you comparing Russell Crowe to Richard Burton? There’s a kind of sacrilege going on here.”

    and finally someone (I won’t say who) sent me the following:


    Best part of the article:

    "We don't think that talking about specific negotiating tactics or your negotiating position in the press is the best way to negotiate a deal," Perino said after Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was quoted in a magazine article supporting the 16-month troop withdrawal timeline proposed by Obama, the Democratic presidential candidate.

    A spokesman for the Obama campaign responded, "Even Iraqis want us to leave Iraq, so Bush and McCain can go eat a dick. Jesus Christ. Somebody wake me up when one of them says something relevant. If John McCain was on fire I wouldn't cross the street to piss in his face." A spokesman for the McCain campaign attempted to contact the Associated Press for an official comment, but we did not accept the charges.

    ...I may have edited that a little, for the sake of clarity, but I think the giste of it is still pretty clear: George W. Bush and John McCain should both go eat a dick.

    I read that, probably as you just did, thinking the whole thing was a serious article!
    The result was a long period of trying to clean coffee out of my keyboard.

    I better not be disappointed.

    Shore Leave

    Just a couple of quick notes here from Shore Leave:
    As always happens at these events the space time continuum broke down, lurched from one dimension to another, rolled around on the floor a bit, then settled down, had a drink and finally righted itself by midday Sunday. Between Friday night and Sunday however much fun was had by most.

    A Romulan Commander: "What the hell is she drinking?" Gina whispered.
    "With Romulans," I replied quietly, "it's best not to ask."

    Benjamin Franklin showed up for a bit. On meeting Gina and realizing when he was, he was heard to lament: "Ah, to be 170 again."

    Barbarella started disputing the bar bill, and things looked dicey, but local station law man O'Niel showed up and quickly set things right.

    Dinner with Klingons - "Vegetables are not food! Vegetables are what food eats!" he declared.
    "Relax," I said, "try the Salmon. It taste just like wild Targ."

    All of us: On McCain possibly picking Mitt Romney as a running mate:
    Frank: Talk about a dream ticket - for the Democrats.
    Patrick: If McCain picks Romney, Barack Obama could literally pick a cactus as his running mate.
    Collins: He knows more about the economy than McCain.
    Frank: He's strong on the Environment.
    Collins: And he's from a desert state.
    Patrick: This puts Arizona back in play.

    Patrick: Listening to the first several Chords of "The Boys are Back in Town" by Thin Lizzy: "This song . . . needs a good hook."

    Gina: "I am not fodder for your MYSPACE!"
