Star Trek to Star People: A Day in the life of…(4/3)

Posted by goldwriting on April 3, 2008

1 – There are Star Trek fans, then there are Trekkies, then there’s this guy. We have now found the place that personifies the old adage, “It’s nice to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there” [via Film School Rejects]

2 – Take ten minutes today, this morning, whenever, to sit down and watch this video. It’s about a brilliant artists and his show in SoHo in New York. There is inspiration in simplicity and he’s found it. [via swissmiss]

3 – Once Peter Jackson pulled out of the project, the studio disappeared as well and video game fans around the world were saddened by the illusion of a ass-kicking Halo movie. Now that shimmering image has gotten a little boost back into reality. Stuart Beattie, who just penned the G.I. Joe script, wrote a spec script for it and if the toy soldier movie does really well, we just might see life breathed back into Halo. Now if someone would just pony up the $200 million dollars it will take to make it look good. How much of a credit limit boost do you think Capital One gives? [via Film School Rejects]

4 – What do you do when you have one of the most successful and critically acclaimed shows on TV? Spin it off, of course. The creative types over at NBC are giving people what they seem to want, more Office than they can shake a stick at. Very little, actually nothing, is really known about the Office spinoff, but you can be sure it will be worth watching if it’s made by the same creative team. Set TiVo’s to chortle.

5 – How long have I been saying this, we really needed to figure out a way to not only have remote controls that do everything, enabling us to not move at all from our uber-comfy couch, but I also demand that we not have to even touch the remote control, since that involves actual work. Well, it seems the design folks over at Bang & Olufsen were listening. Let me introduce you to the touchless remote control: [via Josh Spear via endgadget]

6 – NBC is breaking the rules and personally, I think it’s a smart move. With a network that has been openly struggling to get itself back in the game, sometimes you need to change the rules of the game. NBC is going into a 52-week schedule this coming year, fewer repeats, constant stream of new programming, which can translate to continued high rating and tons of advertising dollars. Me thinks people under the peacock have been earning their feathers recently. Nice work. [via Starpulse]

7 – I’m not sure making a movie showing Genghis Khan to be a nice guy or righteous is going to fly with major audiences, but if I ignore that fact and just watch epic sword battles in the desert, well now you have my attention. [via FilmDrunk]

8 – “Transformers, get ready to ROCK!” [via Film School Rejects]

9 – With the gap in the Pennsylvania primary closing steadily, Obama has even more reason to celebrate. He raised $40 million dollars last month in donations, still without the help of big business and special interests. How someone can look at this campaign and say he doesn’t have the support of the country is completely beyond me. [via CNN]

10 – Admittedly, the guy in this video gets a little excited, but I think the concept is a solid one. Take a moment today, or if you’re bold take the whole day, and just converse about positive people. People who inspire you, people who make you want to support charity or help out people less fortunate than you. Anyone who gives you a boost in a positive direction. Spend your day talking those people up to your friends and colleagues and let’s just see what that does for society as a whole. Could we actually bring it to a place where good people become more revered than popular people? Dare to dream! [via swissmiss]
