STAR TREK: MONDAY 14

 

 “Death is that state in which one exists only in the memory of others. Which is why it is not an end. No goodbyes. Just good memories. Hailing frequencies closed, sir.” – Tasha Yar. Welcome back. Today we take a look at the one, the only, the first chief of security and first main character of STNG to be killed off at the end of season 1. Tasha Yar. Now Yar memes are few and far in between; and most of them revolve around her death, shirt colour, and single facial expression – or perhaps that’s Denise’s acting style? Who knows? Who cares? Let’s get on with it. “The problem is, is that one of the cooks has just been […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 13

 

 “What should I say? How do I act? What do I do?” – Wesley Crusher. Well, this is interesting. Seems young Wesley Crusher is one of the most hated – though more loved than Edward – characters in the fictional world. After minutes of research I have managed to compile a list of the most popular Crusher memes – or near enough. “Sir, the shields are back up.” – Wesley Crusher. We shall begin with this, the famous “Picard Full of Win” meme. By now you should be well aware of this meme; so I’m not going to bother telling you about it. “Sir, the shields are back down.” – Wesley Crusher. This our next meme. Though it’s a single […]

FIVE FUTURE WEAPONS

 

 “May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won’t.” – General George Patton. Seems the world loves weapons. The bigger the bang, the more deadly the fallout, the stronger the quake (see what I did there?), the more devastating the long-term effect on our economy, the better the world feels. In the past few years Governments across the word, though mostly the U.S.A and Chinese, have been working on the next generation of weapons and military tools: from invisibility, nano-technology, unmanned planes, and piles of other toys. But today, we focus on five of the upcoming – or released weapons. “Love is like war… easy to start… difficult to end…. and impossible to forget.” – Unknown. 05: XM-25  This […]

5 SCI-FI SHOWS YOU SHOULD WATCH BEFORE YOU DIE!

 

 “Klaatu barada nikto” – The Day the Earth Stood Still. Once again I have attempted to avoid the cliche and focus on the independent. That means you’ll see no Star Trek, no Doctor Who, no Star Wars. Instead we’ll look into older and underground shows. “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.” – 2011: A Space Odyssey. 05: PRIMEVAL. (2007-2011) [youtube id=”pNTOJ9PFwPc” width=”450″ height=”260″] This is one of Britain’s more bizarre TV shows. Created by Adrian Hodges (Survivors) and Tim Haines (Walking with Dinosaurs, The Lost World), this ITV series ran for five seasons. This series revolves around a group of scientists who are tasked with investigating and stopping temporal anomalies and whatever spills out of them. 04: […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 12

 

 “You have an appointment in your cabin, Captain, with your bed!” – Doctor Crusher. Well glue a pack of Tribbles, and a lobster to my head, then call me a Klingon. It seems Doctor Crusher has been holding out on us; secretly producing and captioning a large number of memes, though she never stars in any of them – talk about guerilla comedy, or something like that. So let’s get to work then. “Don’t expect a lot of conversation; he’s in full Klingon mode – honorable, strong and close-minded.” – Doctor Crusher. Here’s the classic “Annoyed Picard” meme. We have seen this meme before. Now as you can no doubt tell this particular meme revolves around Doctor Crusher. “Dr. Crusher […]

TEN MUSIC VIDEOS: THAT YOU’LL NEVER FORGET!

 

 I thought, let’s do something different this Tuesday. And low and behold we’re doing something different. This week, I’ve decided to dedicate my post to the wonderful world of music videos. Now as you can imagine, this “theme” opens up  a world of dynamic possibilities. Should I focus on horrific videos, or perhaps retro, perhaps Rap or Rock would be better? The options are limitless. So I settled for something a little different. Today we are going to look at TEN music videos (different times, styles, genres,) that once seen shall be burnt into the core fabric of your mind – FOREVER! 10: ZLAD: Supersonic Electronic. ZLAD, born Santo Cilauro, to Italian parents in Australia in, 1961, is a musician, […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 11

 

 “In another time and place, this could be funny.” – Counselor Troi. May, Monday, Memes, Mariana Sirtis, Chocolate and Coffee. Right, let’s get on with it then. “That’s funny. I thought most doctors *were* people.” – Counselor Troi. First up is this, commonly referred to as “Deanna Troi” or “Bar Troi.” (Because Troi is sitting at the bar. Star Trek: First Contact.) This meme is a bit of an odd one. It’s not quiet a de-motivational, not quiet a face-palm, not quiet a grumpy meme. (No, it has nothing to do with that condiment cat.) This meme, though few in number, covers a wide range of topics, from simple humour and amusing disbelief, to self loathing and the social conscience. “I […]

BEING A ZOMBIE: PROS AND CONS.

 

 Most of us like zombie films, and zombie games. Hell, many of us have probably read zombie survival guides and dream of putting those skills to use. But what if you are on the other-side? What if you are a zombie? What would be the pros and cons for your new state of un-life?   PROS: 1: You can eat anyone! Whoever they are! Whether they annoyed you at school, or are simply a stranger trying to survive another day. That is of course assuming they are not undead like you. 2: You’ll never have to pay for anything that you might still be paying off. Though you won’t be able to enjoy your purchase. 3: You can feel NO […]
