This Is How Planet Of The Apes Got Started

Shot Glasses At 30 Paces

Wanted a shot of Jack Daniels. 

Didn't have any in the station. 

Posted this instead (from my review of "Is There In Truth No Beauty?"

Give Ben Affleck A Bat-Chance Internet

I wonder if the Internet has recovered yet from the announcement that Ben Affleck will be playing Batman in the sequel to Man of Steel....

...Nope, the Internet is still as stupid as ever.

Affleck has clearly matured as an actor, and as a filmmaker, since his earlier roles in Daredevil and Armageddon, for example.  He's written and directed acclaimed and award-winning movies, even nabbing the Best Picture Oscar for Argo.

I think Affleck will do fine as Bruce Wayne/Batman, but a huge and very important part of his performance will be the story he has to work with that David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder concoct (I had problems with Goyer's MoS) and Synder's direction.

Live Long and Bazinga

The Trek Collective has a nice piece up about upcoming Star Trek-related figures publicized at last month's San Diego Comic Con.  What caught my eye was this terrific and fun Mego action figure mash up of Star Trek with the cast of The Big Bang Theory.

Now you can have Leonard, Sheldon, Howard and Raj go on adventures with your Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Gorn Mego figures.  See how long it takes before Spock neckpinches Sheldon unconscious.

Too bad they can't include a special Penny figure, in the likeness of the super-cute Kaley Cuoco, in a red Yeoman Rand uniform (with or without beehive hairdo).

Live Long and Bazinga.

Phaser Phrasing!

We love all things Star Trek here, so when some mad geniuses combined the animation from the 1970s' Star Trek: The Animated Series with audio from current FX channel cartoon-for-grown ups series Archer, the result is, STARCHER TREK!

It's goofy, it's silly, but most importantly, it's funny.  And it was posted by the good folks of IO9.

(Also, love the shou touts at the end to Red Letter Media's Mr. Plinkett.  I too wonder sometimes, "What's with all the Ricks," but I am still waiting for Rick Berman's tell all book about his time at the helm of the Star Trek franchise.)
