1. The AV Club is still running its series of reviews of Star Trek: The Series Without a Subtitle. Over at the Pyr-O-Mania blog a posted some semi-thoughts about the modern paucity of cool character actors like Ted (“Lurch”) Cassidy, or Reggie (“I Still Have Nightmares”) Nalder or, for that matter, Michael (“Dr. Miguelito Loveless”) Dunn.
2. After I Blished-out, as it were, in the Blog Gate last week, the AV Club’s Kevin Phipps published a thoughtful review of A Life for the Stars–chronologically the second of the “Cities in Flight” books, although it was published last. I don’t say these things are causally related; they aren’t. I just note the great Blishing in the Zeitgeist, is all.
3. I do other things than read the AV Club and watch Star Trek. Unfortunately, on advice of counsel, I’ve decided not to blog about them. (Although I’m convinced some of that stuff is covered under the double jeopardy rule.)
