About Lebowski

  1. Oh my god... wow..... brings back memories.
  2. Happy birthday!
  3. A friend of mine linked me to a blog called Cake Wrecks' recent post featuring Star Trek themed cakes. For instance... and yes, this is actually edible: The whole posting can be found here: http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2009/05/tre...ough-stars.html There are some really good ones... often cakes for people geeky enough to have Trek-themed wedding cakes! Anyway, if anyone else has any impressive Trek themed food feel free to show it off (no erotic cakes, though :huh:). For some reason I don't seem to have any old photos of any food from Quarks at the ST Experience...
  4. LOL, yes every planet in SG1 looked the same.... but they had an amusing meta-awareness of it sometimes. That's what made the show so great, is that it didn't take itself too seriously. I mean, in later seasons the good guys were pretty much nonchallant about being captured by baddies, and joked about it in a "here we go again" kind of way. But if you're not judging things on sets alone, they still managed to make each episode have something unique going on AND have a good overarching plot. Nope, not cynical (really) :huh: Anyway, I'm curious to see how this new show goes... although it probably depends on who is involved with making it. Personally, I think that Trek is done, and it's because it has gotten so far from the roots of who was working on it before. I mean look.. Jonathan Frakes directed First Contact, and it was awesome. But then the Next Gen crew (who worked with Roddenberry) were only barely involved in Enterprise. And then the last two movies were directed by people who never watched and didn't give a hoot about Star Trek. So point being... I think that if the people that made SG1 great are involved with this new series, I think it'll be great, too. But if it's just some other folks trying to cash in on the name, then I doubt it'll get off the ground.
  5. I think Kansas has the best grasp on the reason for my posting this to begin with :P
  6. Precip already mentioned that Star Trek was featured on the cover of a recent issue of Newsweek. Well, when the Newsweek reporter was interviewing President Obama about his thoughts on his presidency thus far and some more general questions about his life, he asked what the most recent movie Obama had seen was.... And the last movie you saw? Now, movies I've been doing OK [with] because it turns out we got this nice theater on the ground floor of my house … So Star Trek, we saw this weekend, which I thought was good. Everybody was saying I was Spock, so I figured I should check it out and—[the president makes the Vulcan salute with his hand]. Very good. Yes, absolutely. Did you watch that when you were growing up? I used to love Star Trek. You know, Star Trek was ahead of its time. There was a whole—the special effects weren't real good, but the storylines were always evocative, you know, there was a little commentary and a little pop philosophy for a 10-year-old to absorb. A lot of U.N. stuff. Yes, exactly, right. Source: http://www.newsweek.com/id/197891/page/4
