Or why SyFy will cease to exist. Reality pseudo science TV and rastling DO NOT make a Science Fiction Channel. *sigh* It will make my choices on Monday a lot easier. I can get work done in the evening. PS What ever show they put on at 10pm on friday doesn't exist in my brain. I won't watch the wrestling and 10pm is when the hubby goes to bed and watches news. So if I forget to fight for a show, it doesn't get turned on. And heck, I wasn't watching SyFy before that time.

*sigh* Comicon got too big for me about 5 years ago, I had to stop going. And Felicia Day doesn't help me get into all the great parties, so I'm on the outside when it comes to those. Glad you had a Great Time though. And it is fun seeing the fun side of Comicon from someone whose reports are AWESOME. Thanks for sharing.

OK, Hallmark has official jumped the shark. I loved the Enterprises, and various Star Wars stuff. I have a even bought a bunch of them. But why a scene in which two men are fighting cause one is in blood lust have to do with the holidays? Mind you, I am a bonafied, watched them until I could identifiy each episode by the establishing shot, Trekkie (both original and Next Gen, when Spike TV was doing NG striped I was a regular). Yeah, I know they are doing something from each episode, even if it is senseless, for the collectors. Bummed that I missed the Tribbles one, but I stop having a place to put them up a few years ago (the dvd collection ate it with yet another bookcase), so I think I'll pass. Have they started the Next Gen ones? What will you do when Wesley becomes a Hallmark ornament?

You have nothing to fear until you see a Wesley painted in velvet in the middle of one of those things. XD And Scalzi, that is NOT a prank idea.

Wow, that floor is Gorgeous! Some of the 70s and 80s stupidity made them cover that lovely floor. Glad you earned it back! Be sure to do something to protect the floor from the dog nails. Watch for marks in the first few weeks. You may need to apply a harder finish than Murphy's Oil Soap to protect it. Though even a good waxing will help. Have fun on the Leverage's Set!

OMG. I can't believe you were a Forbidden Zone virgin until a few months ago. I keep describing this bizarre little movie to friends and they want to certify me. :D Our first copy was videotaped off the tv because we couldn't find it Anywhere! When we visit LA and run into Sepulveda, we frequently break out in song. ;) Richard's released a color version? I must go looking for it. Silly fact - This is the First Movie Danny wrote the film score. *giggle* But when I saw Beetlejuice, I Knew who wrote the score before I saw the credits. PS Danny's IMDB says he's working on Forbidden Zone 2: The Forbidden Galaxy.

Wil, I know the clothes were dorky, but it was such a Cool Show. And the costumes for NG (all of them) were better than the velour shirt, which would shrink, in TOS. :) And you've grown into an incredibly neat writer and person. I'm looking forward to the book! One of my fun things, when NG was being shown in order in continuous loop on Spike TV. We'd go from "All Good Things..." to "Farpoint", talk about watching a show and the actors change and develop. And the severe case of whiplash. :D And for those of you feeling old, I watched Farpoint with a jaded eye of someone who watched TOS as a teenager. They had A Lot of Winning Over they had to do. And luckily they did. :) And yes, you will always feel that way about Your Trek. That being the Trek you watched as a teenager. Nope, won't change even as Shatner gets balder and Nimoy hands Spock to a new actor.

I was following the Nebulas on the SFAW website. Cheryl Morgan set up a live blog for it. Yes, It was totally geeky. :) When they announced the script presenter, we all laughed. It seemed appropriate that it was you. And the bit about "Everyone I know who is successful reads books. Everyone I know who is successful and interesting reads science fiction and fantasy." even got repeated to us, so I would say it went over well at the awards ceremony. Oh, that sounds like its going to be a fun book. You are a good writer and I'm pleased that it is you putting all the memories on paper. Now I can't wait! Open, Open, Open...

I am always in awe of our little Blue Planet. *sigh* I just wish we were better stewards. I would be happier about our Exploring New Worlds if we took better care of our own. ;) But Still "All This would be meaningless if we don't go to the Stars" - Jeffrey Sinclair, Babylon 5. (Yes, I have read and enjoyed Lots of SF in TV & Books growing up, why do you even ask?)

I remember Majel selling and signing copies of the Next Gen Bible. "Star Trek is Back!" She enthusiastic told us. And she was right! Her enthusiasm for anything by Gene was fantastic. And her enthusiasm for life was even More Fantastic! And she was a good friend to fandom. Some how always remembering us with a smile and a hug. She will be missed.

Ok, not only did I find this such a silly video, I called in the rest of the Family and Made Them Watch It! From Comfy Chairs! We all had a great laugh. Yes, we are all from that part of the Venn Diagram, it's a lost cause. Thanks for sharing.

I'm planning to be at Loscon and a friend pointed me to the IM John ran. The two of you in a panel together, the thought is scary in a fun sort of way. See you there.

I'm a bit older than you, Wil (saw TOS in First Release), and when I hear about all these people, and remember the great Star Trek they helped create, passing away, I feel Ancient. I'll be in the bar...

At hockey games (yes, they show up at hockey games too), we've been known to talk to the ushers, who will go and get security. If one gets too drunk or too stoned, it is grounds for them to eject you. Luckily for the Paul McCartney concert I went to, there was none of that. Just some people using their cell phones to record favorite songs. And yes, Paul is still pretty awesome, and he was almost 64 when he did the tour. Lots of jokes about that. :D
