Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

  6:59pm MrFab:

Hi gang! Yeah, you are right on my (cosmic) wavelength today Evan.

Here's a scary thought: those Ultralounge comps came out 22 years ago. We are almost as far removed from the exotica/Lounge revival as the revival was from the original exotica era.

Hi Doc!
Avatar 7:23pm hyde:

@flash i would go back and forth. i knew i would need something practical, and my brother had stuff like Bradford Angier's How To Live in the Woods and the Army Guide To Survival, so I would generally pick one of those. But i'd also need fiction and history! so I would likely go for The Phantom Tollbooth or one of the John Christopher Tripods books and then something like what my father would read as general history, like the Kenneth Clark Civilization. But there were so many choices! It used to torture me to try and pick three.

That Moog Indigo lp continues to elude me. Cool track!
Avatar 7:34pm hyde:

this show is reminding me that the future of space travel used to be hopeful, and not some weird Elon Musk vision of leaving behind a scorched earth.

@Scraps i actually reread some of the Tripods books as an adult maybe 15 years ago, and they totally stood up. They are really good.
Avatar 7:35pm Flash Strap:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Scraps:

When I joined science fiction fandom, I discovered John Christopher's books were boys books. There were nothing to involve girls; almost no female characters at all.
Avatar 7:37pm hyde:

@Scraps yeah, agreed. they don't stand up on that angle.

Well, that's definitely how Moog is pronounced, but I didn't want to spoil JJP's Mood Indigo pun
  7:43pm MrFab:

You are correct Danny. Been trying to tell peeps that for years!
Avatar 7:46pm Flash Strap:

Had I said Mogue Indigo, it would have been a case of pronouncing the name/instrument right but nonetheless pronouncing the name of the LP very wrong. Classic DJ Catch 22

I only really started watching a couple of years ago. As a child I thought it was boring and looked ugly, though I liked Spock. I think he came across as a large handsome elf, the Vulcan coldness trait was over my head.
Avatar 8:22pm hyde:

@Flash Strap there is something about Shatner's overacting that is somehow oddly appealing. The othet New Year's weekend thing that i saw was the Twilight Zone with him in the airplane with the gremlin, which is just beyond amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Ike:

Original Trek is great. Be sure also to watch the underrated Star Trek: DS9 if you haven't before. It's a great show, but as with TNG, you must skip most of season 1, when it went through terrible growing pains. All of Trek is on Netflix (U.S.).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm melinda:

Saw Tribbles for the first time last night, before that it was an episode featuring one of the actors from Bob Newhart's therapy group, kind of an odd and unexpected casting.
Avatar 8:24pm hyde:

@melinda Leonard Nimoy is pretty much just a great actor. i love to watch him and Shatner together, because one is a great actor and one is a bad actor, but the chemistry still works. it's sort of unbelievable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm melinda:

@hyde: Shatner really grows on you, it's true. Watch him enough and the overacting seems normal. I agree they had good chemistry.

This ancient relic of a website can help you figure out which Trek episodes you MUST skip: www.joereiss.net...
Anything rating below a 6.0-ish average in this survey is generally an episode so unbelievably terrible (and/or unbelievably boring) that it will cause your face to melt off of your face (TM Dave Hill).

Avatar 8:34pm hyde:

i think Kaufman had a great directorial run from The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid right on up thru The Right Stuff. and then he just seemed to spit the bit and disappear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm melinda:

I haven't seen either of those, maybe I should check them out.
  8:36pm MrFab:

Crew members in groovy miniskirts and bouffants, the opening theme, cheesy action and fx, alien babes in bikinis, and Nimoy 'n' Shatner - the Abbot and Costello of sci-fi. Yep, the original Trek's the only one for me.
Avatar 8:37pm Flash Strap:

I'm just going to say it: I think Shatner's work on the original series, and some of the flicks too, is very very good. I think he's a good actor! Not now, or even for some time, in his bilious self-parody phase, but I think the guy is insanely talented
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm melinda:

@Ike: thanks for the recommendation. I liked TNG, don't remember if I saw any of the 1st season.

Avatar 8:41pm hyde:

@Flash i get that. i mostly have an aversion to overacting, which is why i guess i think he is "bad". but he also kind of falls into the category of scenery chewers like Lee Marvin, who are so invested in their scenery chewing that it becomes enjoyable in its own right

Avatar 8:51pm Flash Strap:

absolutely, especially the master class: The Wild One

there are exceptions though. He's entirely taciturn sometimes, such as Boorman's Point Blank.

I love him in Dirty Dozen so much
Avatar 8:53pm Flash Strap:

adios Doc, been great having you in the office tonight
Avatar 9:00pm still b/p:

Hiya. Here to have my Tang topped off.
Avatar 9:02pm hyde:

@Flash in Point Blank he is fantastic, but even there i feel like he is turning being taciturn into something that, i don't know, smolders. which is not generally what you'd expect from taciturnity.

don't get me wrong; i think he's great.

i actually think that a lot of what i think gives him gravity as an actor is that he really was a combat marine. he killed people and got shot twice in wwII and ended up an actor sort of by happenstance. the roles i really like him in are the early 50's western stuff where he projects real menace, and the late 60's war movies where it's clear he knows what war is actually like. he still kind of overdoes it, acting wise, but that's ok by me.
