Via J-Two-O via Another David S., an Audi ad featuring the Two Spocks:

Nerd-Child and I already have our Star Trek Into Darkness tickets and are eagerly awaiting the premiere. We both love the franchise, but the kiddo is even more stoked than usual because the wonderfully named Benedict Cumberbatch has joined the cast as Khan. Nerd-Child informed me that Cumberbatch’s fans are referred to as “Cumberbitches.” Not in this house, they aren’t.

Anyhoo, has any classic TV series produced as many national treasures as the original Star Trek, which gave us Leonard Nimoy, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, William Shatner,  et al? Discuss! Or talk about whatever…

LOL, got me right in the geek.

Talk about whatever, eh?  Whatever is my favorite thing to blather about!  I shall blather about blog neglect.  Wanna know something I find funny?  This blog stands alone in that, if I neglect it for too long, I actually start to feel guilty.  GUILTY.  About OTHER PEOPLE’S BLOG.  I am delightfully neurotic, in your favor, blog.

As I’ve been working, I have been periodically following the Benghazigate hearings coverage.  It’s fantastic kabuki, but I can only stand the dumbstupid for short bursts.

Mr. Cumberbatch kicks acting ass in the BBC’s most recent Sherlock Holmes series; I just wish I understood british quick-speak better than I do.

And, Mr. Nimoy was my first TV crush.  So logical, so hot….

I loved this commercial. Loved loved loved. :)

Couldn’t they have gotten an Indian actor to play Khan Noonien Singh?

With Jason Collins of the NBA coming out of the closet, I think George Takei’s Takeidown of homophobe Tim Hardaway has got to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.  George Takei, internment camp resident, defender of migrant farm workers, and gay rights activists, should get a Presidential Medal of Freedom.  Could you imagine the resultant headsplosions among the right wingers?

For what it’s worth, I read somewhere that Cumberbatch was their third or fourth choice. I can see the argument for finding an Indian actor, but on the other hand, Cumberbatch is pretty terrific as a twisted genius (Sherlock), so I’m interested in seeing what he brings to the Star Trek franchise.

Heh.  Some glibertarian Trekkies would feel awfully conflicted about that.

Ahh…that commercial definitely hits all the inner nerd buttons!  Nimoy singing about Hobbits was the icing on the cake for me!

SPOILER ALERT:

Spock dies. Khan is imprisoned on a distant, hostile world. And Kirk dances nearly naked with a green slave-girl from Andromeda.

Nimoy singing about Hobbits was the icing on the cake for me!

It’s not so cute when it goes on for two and a half minutes!

B4, thanks for the George Takei clip; Lt Sulu was my next Star Trek crush…
