02:01 pm: comics and initials
started reading comic adaption of Anita Blake (another regular series, eep, this is now up to 7 or something now. oh dear). very pretty. i want one!

also reading Transmetropolitan. like. feel no desire to have a spider jerusalem, though.




There is a currently a vast debate raging in Star Trek fandom, about whether to change Kirk's middle initial. In the pilot episode, "Where No Man Has Gone Before", a gravestone clearly shows his middle initial as "R". But as any fool knows, it is "Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise". The folks who are doing remastered SFX can fix this, no problem, but they're not sure they want to. My solution: change it to "X". "James X. Kirk" sounds so much more spacey, does it not? Also, on a gravestone it is a pun!

The real question is, will they be able to make a more realistic looking CGI toupee for the movies?

A CGI toupee, and maybe in the later movies they could air-brush out the wrinkles and remove the aging spreads so they look like their younger selves again instead of a ship-full of geriatrics *snigger*

And BTW, in case anyone feels like flaming me, I am actually a fan *grin*

Not quite *that* geriatric though. Although perhaps girdles are standard Starfleet issue *rofl*

heh.

nah, <star trek pedant hat>they aged ok according to the timeline. TOS was set 300 years after it was aired, so was Star Trek IV and Star Trek VI. They are too old in I and V, and mildly too young in II and II.

a minor quibble compared to say using cgi to redo all the scenes with klingons to convert them to the later model and anyways look at star wars for the complaints about not releasing the holy trilogy in its original form

I see Lucas finally released the original trilogy on the DVD. Without any cleanup effort at all: you can see the dodgy compositing and stuff. He misses the point!

I like it as a T but would maybe accept an F....I am stoopid why is X a pun on a gravestone?
Mr Shatner never wore a toupee, he had a lovely full head of hair! ;o)
