I Can do Zat: Anton Yelchin and Zachary Quinto Films to Have Their World Premieres at Sundance

Yesterday they announced the lineup for films at the 2011 Sundance Film festival, and a very familiar navigator and first officer will be among those stars in Park City next January!

Like Crazy (Director: Drake Doremus; Screenwriters: Drake Doremus and Ben York Jones) — A young American guy and a young British girl meet in college and fall in love. Their love is tested when she is required to leave the country and they must face the challenges of a long-distance relationship. Cast: Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlie Bewley, Alex Kingston.

Margin Call / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: JC Chandor) — Over a 24-hour period during the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis, the key people at an investment bank struggle to decide how to handle an emergency business situation while examining the personal and moral implications of every action they take. Cast: Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto, Demi Moore, and Stanley Tucci.

The 2011 Sundance Film Festival runs January 20-30 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. For the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, 115 feature-length films were selected, representing 28 countries by 40 first-time filmmakers, including 25 in competition. These films were selected from 3,812 feature-length film submissions composed of 1,943 U.S. and 1,869 international feature-length films. 92 films at the Festival will be world premieres.

(On a related note: if you are going to try to score tickets to see either film, I went to Sundance last year to see Howl and am familiar with the ticket process. I keep meaning to get my post up at my LJ about the day-of/waitlist ticket process and what I thought of Howl (a year later, hah), and I will soon, but in the meantime you can ask me questions about how to score tickets or other Sundance questions in the comments. I'm not a Sundance expert but I DID get in, and I want to help my fellow bbs see them if that is their plan, and then report all about it to us! Registration for timeslots to buy advance tickets goes until January 20, and you can also try for open, day of, and waitlist tickets. Good luck BBs!)

Bedroom eyes Anton and Zach thank you for your time:

ETA that Margin Call also made the cut! <3

MAD magazine Star Trek Spectacular from 1993

I was actually looking for another old Star Trek comic that I wanted to share (no idea where it's got to) when I stumbled upon this, which was given to me by my fifth form Science teacher after he confiscated it from a kid in another class. He knew I'd like it. Now that's a good teacher. I can't remember ANYTHING else from fifth form Science. Punnet squares? Blow it.

Anyway, I haven't scanned the whole thing, just the bits I enjoyed most. I hope you enjoy them too. I apologise for any crappiness, blurriness, poor cropping in the scans themselves - I do not drive a scanner very well.
