A wise man once told me, "I need to get you some pu---."

One night not so long ago I watched the new Star Trek movie and thought it was super tight. Having never seen an episode of Star Trek, I watched the first couple episodes of the original series out of curiosity, fully expecting it to be terrible. I have now committed myself to watching every episode of at least the first season by the end of the summer.

I can best sum up the original Star Trek series as a bunch of dudes flying around while a bunch of crazy shit goes down. Every episode, some new shit goes down. They use some clever storytelling to come to some moral conclusion. This conclusion usually ends in Kirk's chair saying something reflective, somewhat akin to Pinky and the Brain.

So the show is crazy formulaic and really good, but I just finished watching an episode I can't really let get past me. The episode, "Charlie X" is about this teenager who was picked up from some deserted planet and was the last surviving creature there. Apparently, he doesn't know how to interact with humans. He tags along the Enterprise, does some card tricks, sucks at chess and slaps Kirk's butt. After getting rejected by one of the hot chicks on board, he starts making some serious shit go down. Like, shit starts exploding and people start disappearing. By this point it's going just great for me. It's really interesting and they're basically saying what an insecure teenager would do if they had superpowers. Fucking superpowers.

Then all of a sudden, this green flashing dude appears on the ship's deck and makes the kid go away. Everything is fine now. Kirk ends the episode saying to the hot chick, "It's OK. It's all over now," which is a concise statement on how I felt about the episode. I felt like I was watching Wolverine. Man, fuck Wolverine. Deus ex machinas are lame, yo. I'm going to bed.

Summer has been going great, by the way. I'll never want it to end if it goes on like this.

Oh, and that wise man I was talking about in the blog title was Sam Riggleman. I'm not joking. Are you reading this, Sheehan? I am not fucking joking. That's part of the reason why this is the greatest summer ever.

PS: This song is a joy to play (3:32 is the coolest thing i've ever seen).

Collapse into your selfish point of view.

The next few days consist of finishing the Senior Issue of the FOCUS, the Cub Issue of said publication, the Calculus AP test and The Little Prince.

This Island Earth comes out tomorrow! Once school ends, I will write this movie thing I've been talking about.

I imagined this post being much more substantial, but I have nothing to say other than I am busy and happy being busy because the busy things are making me happy. God, I enjoy what I do. And i enjoy more that what I don't enjoy is about to end, namely Calculus and Physics.

I heard Isaac Newton was a queer, anyway.

On repeat- or at least played once and cared to share.
