Me, I've yet to see Trek, but I hope there's applause in the theatre when I do. The only two times I can remember there being a thorough round of applause at the end of a film were Serenity...and Wrath of Khan.

*cough* I see what you did there. Got image, wished I hadn't seen it, can't be undone.

Have already listened to Wilco (The Stream) three times since this morning. This right here is a bucket of win. Especially enjoyed the duet with Feist.

Also, there seems to be kind of a bias online that geekdom is primarily or entirely a function of being deep into tech--well okay, fair, all using computers--and closely after that, RPGs, genre fiction, and comic books, and pretty much nothing else. But aren't there legitimately all manner of geeks? History geeks, film geeks, art geeks, what have you? I can easily cop to tech, sf, and to a lesser extent gaming and comics, but those are hardly the only things I'm a geek for. If Marina Orlova is in fact a geek (D&D cracks aside), it's not because she uses Youtube, it's because she's a philologist, which if you ask me is one of the geekiest professions you could possibly pursue.

Yeah, dude, we're supposed to be fluent in Javascript as *well as* Klingon. Just sayin'. :-)
