Silver Screen

Star Trek

I am hanging out with Anthony Vitale and I was talking about how much I loved the movie Star Trek. This turned out to be a sore subject. Watch the beginning of the trailer….the first teaser trailer….that’s him! They had him on Star Trek for a year, playing this trailer. His was the only face to Star Trek….and then they didn’t expound upon his character in the film. The Star Trek fans were pissed! He was the first actor ever filmed constructing the USS Enterprise NCC-17-01A. They categorize the ships .. A, B, C, D…etc. He was not invited to the premier, and that was the big bummer….but he has attended autograph signings at Star Trek conventions, which was rewarding in and of itself. If you can figure out how to get ahold of Anthony, then he will give you a signed autograph…..hint Anthony Vitale on IMDb has contact info.

Life feels normal again. I am watching the new DVD release of Star Trek. What a great movie! The special effects are amazing and written with so much humor. This movie is action packed, and I love how the characters are introduced. I always liked Star Trek, but I am pleasantly surprised with the quality and storyline.

This looks right up my ally!

What if this is true? Did you hear this story? This is our new Y2K. I remember hearing about the year 2012, and I figured out I would be 42 by then. I would be old, lived half of my life, sounded far away. Well now I’m 39, don’t feel or look old and 2012 seems right around the corner.

I’m not taking this seriously, I just find the story interesting. This is from Wikipedia.

2012 (MMXII) will be a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar.

It has been designated Alan Turing Year, commemorating the mathematician, computer pioneer, and code-breaker on the centennial of Turing‘s birth.[1]

There are a variety of popular beliefs about the year 2012 that are generally considered to be non-scientific.




Predicted and scheduled events
