In my endless quest to review Star Trek V: The Final Frontier into a respectable place in the franchise, I realized something. Our introduction to Sybok, Spock’s estranged half-brother long ago banished for eschewing logic to pursue emotional enlightenment, enhances a pivotal moment in its predecessor. In fact, it enhances Spock’s entire arc in Star […]Read more "How Star Trek V Enhances Star Trek IV"
There’s not much I can divulge about my great friend Mike at this point without being terribly embarrassing for the both of us. We’ve known each other at this point for nearly three decades. So I suppose that this post will be brief. Or maybe not, let’s see where the day takes us. My Honor […]Read more "And Now My Annual Post for Mike’s Birthday"

He’ll undoubtedly figure in a few more before the sun finally sets. This year Mike gets a shorter post, […]Read more "A Third Birthday Post for Mike Makes It a Tradition"
Recently, frequent blog contributor and bon vivant Frylock observed about my purchase and musings on the Star Trek V soundtrack (which is freaking terrific, by the way), Geez. You’re really going all in on this one, aren’t you? Which prompted me to think, when has anyone ever known me to be otherwise? Hint: no. It’s […]Read more "I Don’t Know Any Other Way to Be!"
I pretty much covered all the ground I could possibly cover last year when I wrote about how blessed I am to have such a terrifically awesome friend like Mike. Doctor Mike, if you want to be technical about it. So instead of re–treading the same territory, I’m going to tell you all (the “world” […]Read more "Another Birthday Post for Mike"
