I've gone to the bad place again
Really, I was going to do some work tonight.... but then I kept thinking about this Brad DeLong post about canonical Star Trek episodes. That led to some web surfing, and before I knew it found this at Youtube:This was bad enough, but then it led to this clip, and then that led to this clip, which led to this bit, and, then, well this intrigued me but I just couldn't really enjoy it, and then, finally, oh dear God, there was this extract from my 13-year old id.
I'll post again once I've regained some equilibrium.
UPDATE: Ah, a Youtube video that brings me (sort of) back to the real world.posted by Dan on 01.31.07 at 11:59 PM
So I take it you are a Picard man?
The Simpsons have this to remind you of:
Marge: [hearing modem noises] Ooh, what's wrong with this phone? it's
I definitely preferred Picard -- I got the impression that I might actually have SURVIVED a tour of duty under Picard. Under Kirk, no way; he went through crewmen like they were Kleenex.
Really, consider the original Enterprise dispassionately. The Captain was a neurotic sex maniac (thank God HE didn't have a Holodeck); the ship's doctor was a paranoid racist; the chief engineer was constantly yelling that the ship was going to blow up in 10 minutes -- it was kind of an interstellar Exxon Valdez.posted by: Bruce Moomaw on 01.31.07 at 11:59 PM [permalink]
