A year or so ago I started doing this as an exercise to play around on the edges of politics and current events and to see how long I could keep it up. The rules for myself were relatively simple: Only stills from Star Trek: TOS were to be used.
I spent way too much time doom scrolling Google Images for brain fodder and eventually ran out of steam. I probably could have been able to maintain momentum on it longer if I had started rewatching the series and did the screengrabs myself. But, regardless, politics is exhausting…
Anyway, welcome to the Federation Elections of 2270.
I still have an Elvis documentary inside of me struggling to get out.
Back when I thought I still had a shot at a career in the movies, I outlined a documentary that would have had recreations of his death based on the various theories that were floating around… Okay, okay… theories that I imagined were floating around.
Grok stirred. He pulled the tattered animal skin up closer around his neck to ward off the early morning chill, exposing his rough, calloused feet in the process. He scrunched his nose stiffly at the wet dusty odor from the dead fire sitting in the opening passage to the cavern.
Scratching at the tangled mat of a beard growing on his cheek with blackened fingernails, he ran his slightly swollen tongue over his chipped and worn teeth. He then tried to work up some saliva to take the taste of night out of his mouth.
This is a partial transcript of a diagnostic interview of SUBJECT JAMES FRANK, sufferer of Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder).
It was conducted by DR. FREDERICK RASPUENEL, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the University of California, Barstow. Also in attendance was DR. LISA SABERSTEIN, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, University of Phoenix, Orem, Utah Branch.
Early on in the quarantine, I made a crazy spur of the moment decision to break isolation and run wild with the girl of my dreams. Here is our day of bliss – as a photo gallery.
In the end, the relationship just didn’t work. I couldn’t refill her…
Happy Holidays to all of y’all!!
It has certainly been a long year out here in the three corner wilds. And I am not just talking about the number of days!!
I needed to get a better understanding of some design principles and tools so that I could connect with and manage my creatives a little bit better in my professional world. So, I taught myself how to “photoshop” pics of me into existing images.
Ahhh… Good times….
Have you ever gotten that weird feeling of displacement when you meet a recent immigrant from another country and they are working a service level job and then you find out that they were like a scientist or doctor in their old life? They tell you that they came here to have a fresh start for their families, but find out that they have to start all over again and work their way back up?
I get those feelings all of the time (and fully expect it to happen to me next) and then I can’t help but imagine what that old life was like. This is what goes through my mind when I meet recently arrived people from Russia.
I blame Hollywood.
Like most of you, I love superhero stuff. I see all the big budget, big screen movies, and I give all the small screen TV shows the old college try. But I also love the online stuff.
And if it is funny, even better. So, in that spirit, here are five of my favorite online video type shorts. With Superheroes!!
Once upon a time I found a cool free Face Swap app from Microsoft (that is unfortunately no longer available). We went on many adventures together. Here we are running wild through a series of classic paintings just for the heckuvit. Ahhhh… the good ole days…
