Both neighbors have garage sales going on today. Odd. I would go look at their stuff, but we don’t really know them. My first real interaction shouldn’t be buying crap they want to get rid of. Someone is considering buying that framed bunch of candy wrappers. OK, I don’t need to see any more of their stuff. First bike ride of the year – short but deliciously warm. I wonder if I can go all weekend without driving? I can get to yoga, but getting…
Things I Think About When Reading Old School Star Trek Books If outer space doesn’t look like these 1970’s painted covers, I’m not sure I’m interested in going. I like the idea of being a “friend of Star Trek” even more than being a fan. Being a Trekkie in the 70s WAS like being in a fun, friendly cult. Without all the Kool-Aid and going clear. I was always a Trekkie, not a Trekker, much to the dismay of my Trekker friends. It felt like Trekkies were so…
It’s so great to have nephews, because you get to convince people to go to things like Pirate Festivals “for the kids,” when really – it’s for you. So, ahoy, mateys! A pirating we go!
It’s in! My newest Star Trek masterpiece – Star Trek: Enterprise! 30 pages of Enterprise facts and a cool light-up ship!
LOL, okay, they don’t namecheck me, but they do talk about my books … as well as my buddy Paul’s upcoming and current books. Check out this great article about the current Star Trek publishing trends!
Saw my STAR TREK: PHASER book at Barnes & Noble next to the Doctor Who and Superman books! So exciting! I’d love to do a mini-book kit for Who, so perhaps the licensed publishing gods will be kind!
Wow! What a nice article on my next book due in the fall! Thanks, STARTREK.COM!
Genius. Last night’s stunner finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race capped for me, as a marketing guy, the culmination of years of work on Ru’s part. Four seasons of ever-growing popularity and ratings, B+ List guest judges and now, a live crowning of America’s Next Drag Superstar that may OR MAY NOT be dependent on Twitter and Facebook input.
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…
My first radio interview for Obsessed With Star Trek! I had a great time being interviewed and he had some great questions. Thanks, Peter! http://www.thestuphfile.com/podcast-0109.htm
