We went and saw Star Trek on Memorial day, and man oh man was it sweet. Can’t say that I was a real trekkie at any stage of my life, but I was always drawn to the original ’60s Trek series by the cold, logical likes of Spock, and likewise to The Next Generation by the equally emotionless entity of Data.

As testament to my non-trekkieness, I had no idea that Spock was actually a hapa, and that he had to struggle to repress emotions brought on by his human side. I still dug this portrayal, nonetheless, but kinda wish he backed away from those kisses with some kind of cool, non-feeling Spockist quote, instead of letting himself go. C’mon Spock!

Anyways, so that’s the golden nugget of the week. Shine shine.
