Swagbucks now relevant to our interest



Swagbucks has partnered with Roddenberry.com to create RoddenberrySearch.com, an exclusive place to Search&Win exclusive Star Trek & Roddenberry memorabilia! It's the newest addition to Roddenberry.com, a killer site for Star Trek and Sci-Fi fans!

For any Swaggernauts out there who don't know, Gene Roddenberry was the creator of Star Trek, the sci-fi franchise that has inspired everything from the civil rights movement to space exploration to politics. TSG couldn't be more excited to be partnering with Roddenberry.com to bring you the opportunity to snag some rare Star Trek swag!

There are a few things you'll notice right away:

1) RoddenberrySearch doesn't use Swagbucks as its currency; instead you earn "Tokens". Your Swag Bucks don't work in the Roddenberry Swag Store, and your Tokens don't work on any other Swagbucks Site. In that way it's actually similar to other partner sites.

2) The prizes in the store are true collector's items from the many films and television series in the Star Trek legacy as well as a PHENOMENAL Swagstakes item that I'll be discussing in a blog post later today. That's how huge it is.

For those who don't know, Swagbucks is a search engine but you randomly get "swagbucks" for your searches. Sometimes where are hunts to look for codes that will give more swagbucks. There are various other ways to earn more. Save those up and exchange them for various things like gift cards, music, clothes, etc. It's actually pretty great since you're making "money" by doing something you probably do everyday and takes little effort. So far I've made about $25 in amazon gift cards which not a lot but still something. BUT now there are star trek goodies you can save up for!!

ZQ's reaction to Nimoy's retirement. Also, ZQ <3 NY

"Star Trek" star Zachary Quinto, who played Spock in the recent film version of the sci fi classic, shot down rumors last night that Leonard Nimoy would return to the silver screen as the character he originally played in the venerated series.

"There's not even a script and Leonard just announced his retirement -- he's not going to do another movie," Quinto said during WET Production's "Stars Give Love" benefit performance of short plays last night at the Lower East Side's Angel Orensanz Foundation.

"Frankly, Leonard has got a mind of his own and he's going to do what he wants regardless of what other people tell him. I'm just glad that he's my friend."

Quinto, a new New York resident, performed along with Emmanuelle Chriqui of "Entourage," Jennifer Carpenter of "Dexter" following an awards presentation honoring "Flashdance" producer Lynda Obst and vice president of HBO Films, Maria Zuckerman.

"I'm really grateful to be back and be working here and living a city life -- it's very different than LA," said Quinto. "Every time you step out of your door, you're entering into a maelstrom of uncertainty, and I love that. The little gifts that the city gives you, the synchronistic moments and the coincidences that somehow never are ... it's a beautiful thing."

The "Spock" star, who happens to have one of the most hilariously parodied Twitter accounts ever, is no stranger to the stage. And as an ongoing WET supporter, Quinto said he was happy to be a part of the organization's commitment to changing the way the world views women in media.

"I come from a theater background so there's a huge difference with the audience and reactions in the moment," he said. "When you're working on a film , it can be years before it comes out. So, it's the immediacy of theater that's really appealing and exciting for me."
