It's not that I am into Star Trek so much, it's just that I don't have a lot to write about today and I am using this as an example.
I remember the Borg the most because that's when I started to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation. My cousin was like, REALLY into it. He had little figurines of all the Star Trek characters set up in his room like a shrine and it was creepy. Whatever. That was a long time ago and I've been watching the series on Netflix because I couldn't deal with Quantum Leap.
I had to stop. I mean Al is a hologram but he SLEEPS. What. No.
Back to Star Trek. I guess there is a new movie coming out and it has that one dude in it from that one show and everyone is all OMG IT'S GOING TO RULE.
O rly now
Well, the two things that I read the most (Wired & io9) have said that the film is all kinds of awful and not living up to the hype. I don't really care because I probably wasn't going to watch the new Star Trek unless it magically showed up on Netflix in the next 5 minutes.
I am, however, super into these two trailers and if they get bad reviews, I will be sad:
Gravity - Because space can be awesome and then turn into NIGHTMARES really quickly
Europa - Yay for finding life on the icy moon of Jupiter and then EVERYTHING GOES WRONG
And now we are getting to the point where I get to the point.
Sometimes I get really excited about stuff and then I need it in my life. This happens a lot. I've been trying to get a grip on that but also I kind of just let it happen because it makes me feel ALIVE.
Gene Parmesan! I knew it was you!
The thing about that is that I if I hear anything bad about the new thing that I am flipping out over, my bubble bursts and then I cease to be excite.
For you, I want to know what the last thing was that got you all a flutter. Tell us what you were excited for and if you stayed excited for it or didn't. Do go on!
