      Well, wkend was alright...pretty boring...spend Sat'day morning doing stuff for new place....then went home for quick lunch, and headed off to a frnd's engagement party...after dat had dinner wit another lot of frnds, and had a look at their new place...Sunday was a bit of a usual...pretty bludgy kinda day...dis some shopping for new place...mainly cleaning stuff, so we can start wiping the place down....

      anyways, 2 biffs I have...and mind u, there are just things I blog here, and not other blog sites I keep..cos don't wanna offend frnds...I like blogging here, cos u guys won't get offended..and plus u guys are cool! well, 2 things...Engagement parties and house warming...the wife and I never had an engagement party, and we don't intend on having a house warming for our new place. why?! Engagement parties, to me, is an excuse for ppl to have a party, and get gifts..come on man...u get gifts at the wedding as well, TWO lots of gifts?! dats a bit much man! and it's an engagement...u guys rn't even married yet...grrrr...OK, one point dat was good at THIS engagement party was that, us and our frnds never met or have had very lil contact wit our frnd's fiance. So in a way, it was good to have met him at least once. But other than dat I don't think the party serves any purpose..

      well, the other thing..housewarming....recently, wit the recent increase in ppl buying houses over here..our frnds are in the whole house thing as well. We've always planned to buy a place...if we hadn't gone overseas, we woulda bought one earlier...anyways..now our frnds are in on it...and they're all excited about a house, and house warming...seriously dude..a house is a house...a building...a home is more important..as in the ppl in the house...I've moved a few times in my life time so far, and a house is a house...nothing more....a home is more important....and plus, house warming...it's just a show off session to me...ooh, look at me...THIS is now wat I own...watevers man....it's a place! no need to show it off...my wife and I don't intend on having a house-warming...we'll eventually invite our frnds over anyways...so why a special big party for it anyways....

      I just think these things are just a bit overrated. Why r ppl so excited and likes to celebrate about growing up and having responsibilities?!?! it's just part of life....get use to it...

      anyways, yep, have just realised this journal makes me sound totally old, cynical and a party-pooper....but seriously....wats da big deal...

    • Review: Star Trek (as a Trekkie) ***

      10 years ago

      Fwoosh78

      MORE SPOILERS ahead

      Yep, here it comes...my mega b1tch about the new Star Trek movie. As a sci-fi fan, Trek was my 2nd love after Star Wars. After so many years, and now the reinvention by JJ Abrams, I came into this movie with high scepticism. First of all, I wondered whether they would stay true to the spirit of Gene Roddenberry's creation of the future Utopia (would this movie make Gene Roddenberry happy?), and 2ndly, would they keep a good continuation of the franchise and keep the legacy of Star Fleet going? Since it is a "reinvention", made by one of the most commercial directors/creators currently in Hollywood, I should've known that the continuation factor would go out the nearest air-lock, sucked into the nearest blackhole, and crushed out of existence.

      Anyways, before I get into the details of my biff about the new movie, commendation of some things in the movie. First of all, there were some great shout outs for old Trekkies with phrases and little things to keep the oldies happy, I mean, besides the characters which are of cos there from the original Star Trek. Here's things I picked up:
      *In the end, when Kirk gets commissioned as Captain of the Enterprise, he comes onto the bridge, greeting his crew and wacking McCoy on the arm...it was very, "William Shatner Kirk"-ish...that spirited, almost comical Kirk.
      *the scene of Zach Quinto (aka Sylar)'s Spock has that raised eye-brow, very Leonard Nimoy Spock-ish.
      *Chekov's russian accent was a tribute quite well imitated, Wic-tor!
      *Scotty's I've given it all she's got captain
      *McCoy's "Are you out of your Vulcan mind?" and "I'm a doctor man! not a..."
      *mention of the DiLithium Crystals, warp nassells, warp core and "set phasers on stun" and proper use of the items.
      *the short short mini-skirt uniforms for female Starfleet officers
      *revealing how Kirk passed the Kobaiyashi Maru maneuvre.
      *the Vulcan Neck pinch
      *and mention of various species in the Trek universe.
      *the ending with Spock reciting the original Kirk's "Mission" statement intro.
      anyways, those are just to name a few. So the movie isn't without its merits, from a Star Trek point of view.

      At which point I must mention my distaste for the new movie, especially in reflecting in terms of my questions of whether the movie has stayed true to Gene Roddenberry's original story and also continuation.

      In terms of the true spirit of Gene's creation..then definitely no. As with most prequels these days, it's to attract new audiences, and make the story more impressive by big explosions and space dogflight scene and impressive CGIs. However, the original Star Trek, and also subsequent series like The Next Generation (TNG), Deep Space Nine (DS9) and Voyager (VOY) (I'm not gonna mention Enterprise, cos that was already a let down of the franchise to me), all these series were focused on was humanity, social injustice, self-discovery and ethical issues, in a time of social injustice and moral uncertainties. Even the movies that preceded this recent reincarnation kept to the spirit of the Trek franchise. This new movie had NOTHING of substance like the original series and movies...it was just all show, cosmetically impressive, but NOTHING similar to what was the original attraction of Trek.

      Also, in Gene Roddenberry's creation of Star Trek, the universe was beautiful Utopia, where the only thing they fought for was injustice and may be the demons that haunt us/mankind, with may be some consequential battles....however, in the new movie...nah, there's just a massive ship that just blasts everyone...and that's about it...so yeah...makes for a great movie...but lacks Trek-ness.

      Another aspect of the spirit of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek, was that they tried to keep to actual theories and science, (hence they were able to get Stephen Hawkings on TNG, cos the professor loved the franchise and impressed with its science). Gene Roddenberry actually envisaged the use of floppy discs, before they were actually invented/used. Now either he's a visionary, or he travelled from the future. Anyways, Gene's creation was always based close to science. The new movie...was VERY much science fiction. One massive thing I picked up, was the "blackhole". Umm, they described Nero and Spock being pulled into the blackhole that Spock created, then appearing in the past?!?! Umm, I'm no scientist, but I think they're describing a wormhole, and not a black hole. Blackhole is a collapse star, a singularity that is so dense and has such a huge gravitational pull that nothing, including light escapes it, (which I guess they got that right, cos at the end wen they're in front of the hole and goes to warp, they're actually not escaping/moving), but going to another destination/time, that's a wormhole, which would be a phenomenon that opens a portal for either time or space, or both, bending space and time to arrive at some other place/time (example is would be Stargate). Anyways, that's just one thing.

      As with continuation, well, where do I start...I've always been iffy about prequels that takes place, and it's technology is more advance than the original event..this movie...
      *Why the heck are there touch screen panels...when the original series, it was still flick switches and buttons? and Engineering, was SO big...that make the ship look like the size of the NCC-1701D Enterprise (in TNG) bigger than the original series Enterprise
      *Captain Chris Pike was a young man in the original Star Trek pilot, Managerie.
      *Photon Torpedos were the size of a coffin, the "new" torpedoes are just cannisters
      *Ejection of the warp core was always risky business....in the new movie, they ejected pretty easily and quickly...and MULITPLE cores?!?! umm, there's ONE core in a starship.

      And one of my other biggest issue was, time travel stories are rarely or is hard to write a good time travel story that doesn't contradicts, what they refer to as Quantum Mechanics. That in min

      We eat early here, about 5 pm. Daughter and I get up at 4 am and hubby doesn't get home till around 9 pm. I'm usually just going to sleep when he gets home, he comes in to kiss me goodnight and crawls into bed hours later. After he plays on-line computer games for awhile and has a beer or two. It works out better as I wouldn't be able to fall asleep with his snoring, as it is he usually wakes me around three with his heavy snores! LOL

      I was wondering if your flying in my direction---going over the states or having layovers---or do you travel another way--like over the north pole---just curious as it seems like a long way to travel, almost to the opposite side of the globe! LOL The longest flight I've been on was from Chicago to Los Angeles. About twenty-five years ago it was a four hour trip, and that seemed a long time to be in the air! Imagine a slow boat to China in the old days must have really taken forever! Thank goodness for improvements in journey time! Considering the expenses that they are tacking on to airline tickets these days, I could never afford that kind of trip now!
