Random Link Time!

Previously on Lost: Mildly entertaining video about a guy who decides to watch all of Lost in one marathon sitting. It's his facial expressions and incoherent outbursts that really amuse me; I think it's possible to tell from them exactly which episodes he's watching. I believe I made some of those same noises, just not quite as close together. Warning: said outbursts contain spoilers through the end of season 4.

The Planetary Society's Year in Pictures: 2008: A nice overview of what's been going on in the solar system in the last year, with pretty pictures.

Space Station in the Moon: Speaking of pretty pictures, this image of the International Space Station flying in front of the moon is freaking amazing.

Pic Shows Man Robbing Stores With Klingon Sword: News article about a robber with a bat'leth. Except it really looks like a tiny, cheap knock-off. This man has no honor! What really amuses me, though, is that apparently both the clerks he held up were able to identify the weapon. Nerds are everywhere, man! We live on both sides of the law!

Star Trek: Trailer: The version of the Star Trek movie trailer that aired during the Super Bowl. I'm still not feeling good about it, even if the guy playing McCoy does seem to be doing his damndest to imitate DeForest Kelley's voice. (Note: video is only accessible to folks in the United States.)


  1. The moon shot gives an interesting sense of perspective.

    I'm not sure what tickles me more about the convenience store robber: the fact that both clerks could identify the weapon (even if it's plastic, those points would hurt), or that the news writer went into detail about the change in Klingon alliances between the original series and TNG.

  2. Well, that's an important historical note! :)

  3. I thought the Lost video was pretty amusing actually. And the spoilers were pretty mild and non-specific.

    I can't seem to work up any real enthusiasm for the new Star Trek movie.

  4. They're a lot more recognizable as spoilers if you actually know what they're referring to, but I think there was a comment or two in there I wouldn't necessarily have wanted in my brain if I were partway through watching the series.

    And sadly, I have sort of negative enthusiasm for the Trek movie. Or whatever the opposite of enthusiasm actually is.
