Great Fanfic Quotes

That’s beyond the pale, Harry!” Lee moaned. “I’ll do almost anything you ask; I’ll work hard, I’ll fight wand-to-wand with Death Eaters, I’ll even die if I have to, but I joined the D.A. with the unspoken understanding that I would never be forced to see Fred or George’s bits!”

-From Harry's Seventh Year: The Longest Day

On the Web

My new website is here but my blog will stay here.

Today I watched...

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

Kirk goes looking for a rotting corpse and ends up getting a brain-dead body. McCoy gets possessed by a ghost, and at the end everything is right as rain.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Kirk and Spock wander around 1986 San Francisco looking for whales. Scotty, McCoy, and Sulu wander around looking for plexiglass. Chekov and Uhura wander around looking for nuclear wessles. Guess who ends up being interrogated by the CIA (but I'm sure JJ Abrams would say it was really S.D. 6)?

Matt Damon and others

Matt Damon will NOT be Playing Kirk.

There's also a great video here where Shatner and Nimoy discuss the movie while saying NOTHING of any great newsworthiness.

William Shatner's video offerings

William and Lisabeth discuss John Larroquette, what Denny Crane should ride,how he and James Spader spent their break, and his favorite episode.

Speaking of...

William Shatner has been nominated for an Emmy for Boston Legal, and Comedy Central's William Shatner Roast has been nominated as well. Ronald D. Moore is also up for Battlestar Galactica, and so are Vanessa Williams, Padma Lakshimi, and Junie Lowry Johnson for various other things.

Trek Celebrity Golf

It's an AIDS benefit, and while it's not just Star Trek, they have the most representation.

Garrett Wang and Robert Picardo

Both actors will have the chance to do an internet radio show on TalkRadioX. They will be taking questions from fans. Sadly, Picardo will be on during the Creation Convention so I probably won't get to hear it. However, the show will be broadcast live here. You can submit questions by sending an email to


Shatner's trip to Montreal for ComedyFest is this weekend, just for those of you who were following that.


this article is just full of information on exactly how the remastered thing is going on. Pretty badly, really, if you ask me but that's neither here nor there...

Fan Film Article

This articleis about fan film and how cool it is. Personally, I've never seen any but I hope to soon. I mean, if you think about it, Serenity was just one big fan film.

Borg War

The Trek convention in Las Vegas in August will host a first - the first Star Trek convention to have a feature-length unauthorized Star Trek movie debut. I would be pretty psyched about this, especially since I'll be at that convention and I love the whole fanfilm concept, but the thing is called Borg War.

Borg. War.

Yeah... wasn't that the last four seasons of Voyager? Did anyone universally like the last four seasons of Voyager? Because I'd be kind of surprised.


Alfre Woodard will be in a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie in November.

Kelsey Grammer's new movie should be out in 2008.

Olivia d'Albo will be in the new episode of Eureka on Tuesday on the Sci-fi Channel.

Star Trek Online is still on. No release date yet though.

Shatner's new show on Biography will probably be a talk show, if that makes you feel any better.

And that's all she wrote...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I'm gonna stay spoiler free here, but wow.
At first I have to admit I was dissappointed, but once I saw where she was going, it all made sense. This book is about nothing less than total war between wizards. And it starts quick and it doesn't stop all the way through.

What was a little scary is that I was mostly right in my own predictions. Either I have a hidden genuis or JKR is really predictable.
