I, like many of you, am a huge Sci Fi fan and it all started with "Star Trek".  My kids grew up loving it and now my grand kids are following suit.

I admit it, I cried when they killed off Spock, and was overjoyed when they brought him back and felt as if a family member had passed when Leonard Nimoy died. Never missed an episode or a movie - and have them all.  First on VHS and now DVD and digital. 

Never had the chance to meet him, or any of the actors for that matter. Com...

98 Rotten Tomatoes is a good indicator.

It's a heck of a ride from go to whoa....definitely a must-see.

Max has kinda a back-seat role to Charlize Theron's but she's much prettier, anyway.  It's worth it just to see her 'robotic' arm...it'll have you wondering if she cut off one 'for the cause'...

We saw it at the theatre at Highpoint....just a couple of miles from where Max's original Falcon was built at Duhig-Ford's Niddrie garage. ...
A used paperback book from 1970  - http://www.amazon.com/Explorations-hypnosis-Dave-Elman/dp/0840211430 - selling for $160 should convey something.  I bought my copy way back when from either Ayn Rand's organization or from the related organization of her former lover, the recently deceased Nathaniel Branden, whose unique contribution to moral theory is reflected in my other blog here entitled "On Morals."

Two time inductee to Halls of Fame - Blues and Rock and Roll.

15 Grammies...including lifetime achievement award...and more...along, long list.

The legendary B.B. King is without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half century. 

Incredible blues guitar…played with the best. Still listen to my “Riding With The Blues” album with Eric ...

It’s a sad day for sci-fi fans around the world in learning that Leonary Nimoy passed away today at 83. Last year he announced he had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and was admitted to the hospital earlier this week with complications from that. Sadly, he passed away this morning at his home. Leonard Nimoy is most famously known for playing the role of Spock in the Star Trek franchise.

Born in Boston in 1931, he started acting in local theaters at the age of 8 and eventually mad...

My wife is a mathematician by training but her wit is second to none. In a different life, I think she’d been a good comedy writer.  So I’ve decided to start tracking some of her quips.

This is all from this morning:

 

Me: You’re too good a cook. You’re making me fat.

Deb: And if I was a bad cook, you’d be complaining about that instead.

Me: And?

Deb: You’re like the Kobayashi Maru of food.

--

Deb: Every time we travel now we have to find people...

My daughter dropped her Windows phone Monday outside a restaurant after we had lunch and the its screen shattered. So, after work, she bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 to replace it along with another S5 for her hubby. Monday evening she filmed a video of her daughter (she's a spitting image of my daughter) and sent it to me. Well, the video quality sucked. It was compressed and raggedy. It was worse then videos sent to me when she used an iPhone. I reached the conclusion if I want quality videos ...
