Have a ball

To promote the upcoming second season of One Day at a Time, Netflix recreated the original show opening theme (above). You can compare it to the original (below).

It's kinda fun to play both videos at the exact same time and watch how closely they matched everything, which is pretty impressive.

Makes me want to go blow-dry my hammer.

Uncomfortable in my lonely

Someone posted this gal's poetry performance about sadness on Facebook today and, after watching it, I found that it is still hanging in my brain and heart many hours later.

I'm not sad a lot, but I have felt that way more times than I'd like to admit.

The poet's name is Sabrina Behaim and she has several other videos and has also written a book about depression.

News today that Quentin Tarantino is developing a Star Trek movie idea with JJ Abrams at Paramount...

Already busy prepping to direct the film he just set up at Sony Pictures, Quentin Tarantino is also planning to boldly go where he has not gone before. Sources said that Tarantino has come up with a great idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount. After sharing his idea with JJ Abrams (who himself is busy prepping Star Wars Episode IX), I’ve heard the plan is to assemble a writers room of scribes who’ll hear Tarantino’s take and begin to put together a movie. If it all works out, Tarantino might direct it, with Abrams producing.

Well, this will be interesting. Let's hope he's a big fan and not just doing it to fit in with his other movies. Otherwise it could be one of the most violent Star Trek movies ever made.

I don't want my Star Trek being too stabby.

A long Trek

The first trailer for Please Stand By was released today. It's about a girl with autism who runs away from her group home so she can turn in her Star Trek script for a national competition.

It looks like the kind of film that I'd enjoy. It has a Star Trek-related plot, Patton Oswalt, and a road trip adventure.

Sounds like a fine time to me!

The movie opens on January 26th.

Literally...NASA released these cool images of the clouds on Jupiter and they are pretty amazing.

They look like flavors of milkshakes I'd like to drink.

Now I want a milkshake.
