Death By Lens Flare: Drink Into Darkness

I came across this and thought I'd share with the community :-)


The latest installment of Star Trek warps into theaters this weekend, compressing decades of canon into an action-oriented thrill ride. Regardless of whether or not you like what J.J. Abrams has done with the franchise, he has left an indelible lens-flared mark on it. Among Trekkies like myself, there is a game going around capitalizing on Abrams’ flare for flare.

Let’s play Drink Into Darkness.
Oblivion beckons below the cutCollapse )

TRAILER PARTY POST


Unsure if the mods will let this through but I saw someone suggest it in the trailer post so I thought I would give it a shot. I even made a purty graphic for it

ZOMG GUYS! NEW TRAILER! NEW FOOTAGE! NEW VILLAIN! NEW ERRYTHANG! We have a lot to cheer and celebrate about. Sooooo let out all your feels and emotions here, discuss the trailer even more, nitpick it to death, make gifs and macros and shit, SPAM gifs and macros, destroy my inbox, etc! Summon up all the nostalgia of three years ago holy crap and let's party like it's 2009 and the last move just came out!

dragging out my old Karl Urban-dancing-with-an action-figure-of-Bones icon for this
Paramount Pictures will release the first 9-minutes from J.J. Abrams’ eagerly-awaited “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” exclusively in IMAX 3D months prior to the film’s official release in May 2013. This first-look at the movie will play in approximately 500 digital IMAX 3D theatres beginning December 14th (with The Hobbit).

No details on whether this is happening for other countries :( (*cough* Australiaaaaa??)

BUT WE ARE GETTING EVER CLOSER TO THE ACTUAL MOVIE!!! <3<3

Star Trek: the Exhibition

So since things have been a little slow around here, and since I've been lucky enough to check out the Star Trek exhibition that's come to the Louisville Science Center, I thought I'd give a little review and fill those of you in that haven't seen it!

Naked Ladies will be reading Gene Rodenberry and serving Classic Star Trek themed beverages at Madame X in NYC.

More info at The Naked Girls Reading NYC website.

I went to this last year and it was fabulous, I urge any and all who can to attend. The bar is amazing with a great sensual atmosphere and the girls are all excellent readers. It's like kinky story time ;)

Tickets will sell out and the space is SMALL.

HAVE A STAR TREK THEMED DRINK FOR ME!

NEW SPARKLE TEXT CODE FOR COMMENTING

Know how lj took away our sparkle text except in entries? Well, I have discovered a sneaky way to post sparkle text with a new kind of code. Yes, I am ~magical~.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I made a mirrored version of blindingsparkle called elkrapsgnidnilb (as you can see, it is the same name backwards.) If you're asking why I chose a mirrorverse theme, well, I'm currently high as a kite off cold & flu medicine, so that's what my fevered mind creates. This also explains why only the first entry is done, the glitter and sparkle portion. I'll try and have more up later tonight or tomorrow morning, but no promises as I'm about to go nap and who knows what I'll feel like upon waking. But I promise I'll have them up at some point.

Boring explanation/drawbacksCollapse )

So for now, enjoy sparkling in the comments again!

The image itself isn't terribly exciting but I thought the moment itself should be documented! IT BEGINS!

Everyone needs a little flare in their lives.



[OT: I just watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It was just a bit shite. :/ The only highlight was the handholding and love declaring and Kirk saying DAMMIT BONES I NEED YOU BADLY.]

You might want to put on sunglasses.

I heard it through the grapevine that this would be appreciated. :D
