“Swift and powerful monarch of the seas!”

I bought my first comic on my iPad2 today. To any of my friends, it will come as no surprise which one it is …. What’s my verdict? Well … The art was gorgeous. Really great linework and detail. The story is okay … like much of the New 52 DC launch, it’s pretty slow-paced, allowing time for set-up. The thing is … we don’t have that much time. In 22 pages (and at 2.99) I need to be sold quick. And not just me…

“You … shall not … pass!”

Ahh, Kung Fuesday … perhaps my favorite day of the week! Today was pretty challenging. The internet was down all day at work. And I didn’t get much sleep, and during one radio interview, my phone cut out twice (thanks, AT&T :P) I’d missed kung fu the last two weeks – i was out of town and then sick. So, as with all things inertia-related, it was super-tough to go tonight. But I rallied. And this was my reward … I got a staff! How…

No C.L.U. …

Well, it’s not really Trek-related … but after my friend and I went to the .38 Special concert at Mandalay Beach, we snagged after-party passes for the I Heart Radio concert.

Very Tron, and way cool. We stayed out until 3 am, which is about 20 hours past…

My favorite Star Trek character?

One question they are asking me a lot on radio shows is “Who’s your favorite Star Trek character?” In 45 years, there were a ton of characters I related to, or admired. I wanted to be as badass as Kirk (or alternately, the outrageous Okona), smart as Guinan or have three arms like Lieutenant Arex. But in reality, I was mostly like Broccoli – I mean, Barclay. Reg did with the holodeck what we all would. Admit it! We would have made our co-workers the…

How many Pop-Tarts did it take to write this book?

Jiminy Christmas! A lot. 2500 questions is a lot. And I keep jokingly telling people, the only answer I can remember is how many Pop-Tarts I ate during the writing of the book. I don’t even know that, really. I was probably going through at least a box of 6 toaster pastries every couple of days. Considering it was about 6 months start to finish – that could be somewhere in the neighborhood of 2160. I doubt it was that many, but during the crunch…
