Unintended Punnery I'm Sure

It didn't take long for the marketing to start after Barack Obama's election. As I watch the beautifully creepy House of Wax (with Vincent Price, not the Hilton heiress), there's a super long commercial for the commemorative Barack Obama half dollar. Among the stuff you get with your coin and commemorative stamps is a certificate of authenticity with "Change" emblazoned in giant letters across the top.

Obviously it's change; it's a friggin' half dollar!

Stay for the veal, I'm here all week!

Haw Haw - Nerd on Nerd Crime, Part 2

From a single comment thread over at

THe Star Trek I grew up with. My very CHILDHOOD itself is being raped. And you Mr Cawley, are applauding it. This was my life and now its going to be stripped away from me. Rendered null and void. Wiped out of existence and you DEMAND I let them crap into my mouth and BEG FOR MORE?!? Can you possibly in a million years understand how betrayed I feel? I dont care how much money you sunk into your show

For myself I feel totally mislead by Abrams and Crew. I have suspected for the longest time that they WOULD be making changes, BUT these are DRASTIC changes which contradict not so much “so-called canon”, but most importantly THE CONTINUITY of the ST franchise

Pathetic fundamentalism was never part of the spirit of Star Trek! Whining purist crybabies are not welcome at Starfleet Academy!

Nimoy, Majel …they just sold out to the almighty buck. Majel was always a golddigger. Nimoy is old and cant get work in anything else. Even so-called fan James Cawley has become JJ Abrams personal lap dog after a few bucks and a juicy part got waved under his nose and now to him the great almighty JJ Abrams can never do wrong. Even his farts smell like fresh apple pie. And where he walks flowers bloom. Christ.


Let them ban me. Ill go knowing I fought the good fight. For standing up for what was right. For defending a beloved franchise that has captured my imagination since I was a child. My only crime was giving a damn. For caring. Stifle free speech. Let only JJ Abrams legions of loving yes men say nothing but praise and support.

JJ attacked fans first by shoving this redesign Enterprise down our throats

Nerd on Nerd Crime

A picture of the USS Enterprise from next year's Star Trek film has finally surfaced. Unsurprisingly, the nerdcore is angry. I kinda dig it, though I won't dig the incessant bitching for the next six months.

The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show

Thanks to Mike Sterling being in tune with all things comic-related, I'm now aware that the entire archive of Peanuts is available at I had been wanting the terrific archive books from Fantagraphics, but had no idea where I'd put them all. It's pretty likely I'll buy them anyway, but now I can take my time thanks to the magic of technology. Thanks Mike!

A Tasty Yet Crazy Experiment

A fried hamburger plus three strips of maple-smoked bacon between two halves of a glazed donut. No cheese though--it gives me the wind.

Fast Food Goes to Warp Speed

According to, Burger King will continue its Paramount summer film tie-ins with the new Star Trek movie next 2009.

Will I finally get my chance to say, "I want a Rom with rings, and a Choc Scott!" in public? Hopefully Khan won't show up and find no sneeze guard on the salad bar.
