Why I Didn’t Keep a Dream Journal

Recurring dreams are a common phenomenon…

Except in my head.

Instead of recurring dreams, I’d have “recurring dream concepts.”

Short Treks Movies- 1 & 2

The Original Crew films were released at the height of my teen aged geekdom, and were the first New Trek I was exposed to as a fan.  I’ve blathered on about them before, therefore this time I’m going to focus on connections I noticed to the series while watching them directly after it.  I will also continue to follow my insane conspiracy Extra Galactic Invasion Theory to its logical (sorta) conclusion.

The film subtitles work pretty well as “Mom Titles,” and  since movies are in our blood, "Mom Titles" would tend to be much more personal for the movie- with references such as "My sister fell asleep at the first warp, woke up at the last, and thought the film was five minutes long" or  "Amazingly I had a date for this one during those geeky years." Therefore,  I’ll be adding the “Awesome Ending Line" feature. It's not always the final line, especially since that's usually the "space the final frontier" speech. It's the line you carry home with you.  Unsurprisingly it is almost always voiced by James T. Kirk.

Jeff’s Books to Open Your Mind: The Dinosaur Heresies

A more accurate title for this review would be “books that previously opened Jeff’s mind a little too late,” since most of the key mind opening bits have become common knowledge now.

Or maybe "Dinosaurs and Me: A Love Story"

I was a dinosaur kid.

No, scratch that.

I was THE dinosaur kid.
