On the subject of Star Trek, the debate over "new" and "old' rages on, and this was my first entry into the realm of the new ST Into Darkness, "notes before viewing":

Star Trek Into Darkness / notes before viewing

Thinking of going to Star Trek- need to wait on Dollar Theater but curious 4 a look at it. More I see about the film the better it looks. Much as I wanna I need to wait until Star Trek is affordable.

Khan is the bad guy it is confirmed.

If I can stand to wait that long...

Read two reviews of it last night, both sides, one that hates the film and one that loves it... and they both make me want to go see Star Trek. This is a Star Trek universe that comments on our modern times, juts as Star Trek was always a mirror on our own society.

1960s Star Trek echoed the Cold War and Vietnam, Klingons were Russians and Romulans were kind of mysterious Viet Cong.

1980s Star Trek saw the breakdown of the Klingons as we did with the USSR, and by next Generation we had a pretty peacefull Star Trek with even Klingons as sort of friends... even one of the greatest characters from that time, Worf, was Klingon.
2013 Star Trek echoes our times, and our recent past. And Khan is back... no replacing Ricardo Montalban though.

"Come sit on my fine Corinthian Leather..."

Was kind of relieved earlier when all reports said Khan would NOT be in the movie, had hoped they wouldn't try such a bone heaed move as try to remake Khan.

The critic who loves the film compares the idea of a new Khan with the success of rebooting the Joker. I still see Jack Nicholson as the all-time Joker, and never saw that new Heath Ledger Joker yet. People say he made Joker great, but I have fixed ideas on who and what the Joker should be.

The new actor "reinterpreted" Khan... made him "better". That will be a tough sell, I'll maybe have to just think of him as another character who happens to be named "Khan".

But I will go in with an open mind, to follow Star Trek where it needs to go. It is either remake the series for the new age or put it in the museums.

Jeer if you need to, Trekies, if at all possible I'll be on board and trying to follow these new directions of Star Trek... if they will allow me to.

You can copy the original--but rarely can you beat the original.

Morning Flower and friends. I guess I should take time out of my schedule and get to the new Star Trek movie.

Hey Flower...
SO... the storm front seems to have passed through and believe it or not we hardly saw any rain from it at all...
We had a light shower early this morning and then this afternoon we had a hard rain for about 15 or 20 minutes... that was followed by another light rain that didn't last anytime at all maybe 10 minutes tops...
Today I washed up all the Packs bedding and did a load of whites..
Swept and mopped the kitchen and hallway... Rearranged the patio.. I put the swing up by the house.. it gets more shade there... and then..
I went over to my neighbors house and helped with the removal of a large dead cedar tree... I took my trusty rakes and Chuck and I gathered up all the smaller broken branches and then we carried them out to the curb...
I'm really glad that Chuck finally was able to get that old dead tree taken out.. There were 5 of us over there so it got done in record time..
My neighbors are like that... always willing to help each other when help is needed.. I really have been blessed to have such good people around me..
Just as I have been blessed to have a friend as dear to my heart as you are..
I hope that this day has been a really good one for you and that you were able to enjoy yourself.. I hope that it was cooler in your neck of the woods.. that storm front took a lot of the heat out of here..
OK so I'm gonna surf for a few.. Sending you all of my best wishes and a bunch of love...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---

;o)
Good morning, Rose Bud ... well, finally, it quit raining so walking the pack is not so DRASTIC and unformidable, LOL ... Thank you thank you thank you ... well, don't thank me! LOL ... And who is CHUCK?

LOL ...

Oh Wow, I just pulled up the wx and looks like SAT is getting pounded ... no sun out this mornning and it's the calm before the storm ... maybe we'll get some rain out of it ... Thunderstorms headed this was to he south of us ... hope so ... time to do the rain dance ...

Enjoy your day!Luvya big FC <3 ...

Thanks, I'd love to see one more film with Picard and his crew, and they are still plenty young enough, heck Patrick Stewart seems to get younger every year!
Yes, you've been very busy with your benefits and I understand that ... Stewart was always MY favorite ... course, I liked Captain Janeway, too .... cuz she was a GIRL! LOL ...

Good morning Flower and friends. It's a beautiful day here in the realm. The house smelled great yesterday, I was drying some chocolate mint in the dehydrator--the smell was just heavenly. The only problem was all all I had a craving for mint-chocolate chip ice cream....
Have a super day....
Good morning, Princess ... mint chocolate chip is one of my faves ... same as Girl Scout cookies ... love to buy them by the case and give them away as gifts ... keep them in the freezer gives them the extra crunch but not before I go through a whole box myself, LOL ... I do wonder what is going on at the cinema today ... I woke up way to late to remember to look and I'm not all too spiffy to go out anywhere so maybe I'll just read, well, there is nothing to read, WAIT ... there is a bag of books my sister gave me int he front bedroom ... NAH ... I don't feel like rummaging through them ... Our style of reading is different ... That, my friend, is why they are still in the front bedroom, LOL ...

Will, you have GOT TO SEE the film with Heath Ledger as the Joker ... it was AWESOME ... wait, that would be BATMAN ...

Back to Star Trek ... out with the old and in with the new ... there will never be the old Star Trek, again, EVER ... those days are gone and we compilate those series now into CD's or DVD's and keep them for old times sakes to watch over and over (like I do)... why do I do that??? cuz I can! LOL ... there was the NEXT Generation ... Now there is the NEW generation of actors/actresses ... the film, for what it's worth, was a very good film ... Will it ever meet the expectations to to William Shatner, Patrick Stewart? I don't think so ... who could but, William Shatner and Patrick Stewart were once young and so are these new actors ... I say give them a chance ... You may be quitely surprised ... Enjoy the film ... Happy Friday to you! Peace and Love ~ FC <3 ...

George? You mean Washington? I didn't know today was George Washington, I thought it was Friday. So all these years, I've been saying it wrong.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, George Washington, Saturday, and Sunday.

I know what you mean about different reading styles though. I have pretty varied tastes in reading material myself.

Hope you have a super George.

Hearts, hugs, and George! LOL.

From what I see, there's a lot of the "Space Seed" Khan in this movie... Young Kirk vs. Young Khan, and maybe in 20 years or so he'll be back to torment our new Kirk as he's winding down?

Of course, I'll be like 80 or 90 by that time so I may miss all that...

Agreed, either we put Star Trek in a museum or we continue the tradition with new young folks... I say...

"Make it so!"
