Flash and Star Trek 2009 (or "MY NEW JOB IS AWESOME")

So idk if any of you are awesome computer programmer geniuses, but I just started working at a company full of them. OOOii does crazy awesome "future technology" computing for film (mostly) and they did all the computer displays in the new Trek. A while ago, the Flash blog interviewed my boss about it. The video won't imbed, so go here if you're interested in the interview.

Warning for lay people: It's pretty technical. I didn't understand much of it, but that may have been because I was kicking myself that I started working here after JJ stopped swinging by the office every day.

Captain Kirk and Spock Make Out in James Franco’s Upcoming Art Exhibition

On June 23, everyone’s favorite soap-opera actor, James Franco, will open his first solo art show, “The Dangerous Book Four Boys,” in lower Manhattan. What can you expect to find in the multimedia exhibition? Its major theme is teenage “sexual confusion.” Franco explains, "I feel like shows or films that deal with kids, they're playing to all of these sexual feelings that you have at that age, but they don't fully admit to it. So I kind of try to draw that out.” More specifically, among other installations, there will be home-movie footage, short films that “focus on demolition, showing burning or bullet-riddled structures like a plastic toy home or a large wooden rocker,” and, likely best of all, a piece that “explores a romantic encounter between Star Trek characters Spock and James T. Kirk."


You guys. You guys. You guys. PLEASE TELL ME I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE FLAILING RIGHT NOW.
