Bad Words is always funny.  Saw Happy Death Day for the first time, a different, effective take on the Groundhog Day film.

Glad you enjoyed it Jed.. I thought it was a great movie... Divided opinions tho...

Divided?  What do you mean?  Anyway, I can relate the the boy’s inner struggle and ultimate decision to change his opinion.

Not to interrupt your flow, Jed, but a few months ago I bought a DVD set of the six Star Trek movies with the original cast. I've seen them before and enjoyed them. I'd watched just a few episodes of the original series before watching them just to get a general idea of what they were like (this also came after seeing the 2009 movie). It'd probably be worth going back into the original series (I don't remember if Netflix still has it).

No worries, man.  Glad to hear you’re checking them out.  I only began revisiting the 2nd season recently, along with the 1st season of Rawhide.  Lately, I’ve been revisiting The Wrath Of Khan repeatedly.  Still my favorite.  “Khaaaaaan!!!”

9/29/67 (Original Airdate)

2/02/08 (Remastered Airdate)

The basic plot to this is revisited in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.  Like the NASA space probe Voyager VI, Nomad was launched to collect data for return and study to Earth.  Similarly, it was altered during its’ journey, in turn becoming a danger to all life forms it would encounter. 

It’s entertaining to see Kirk expose Nomad’s flaw in its’ memory bank and pointing out that it is “in error” which leads to the probes’ self destruction.  It probably would’ve made more sense to have the logical Mr. Spock execute this task but Kirk did it in a more passionate and entertaining manner.

“Who Mourns For Adonais?”

9/22/67 (Original Airdate)

1/12/08 (Remastered Airdate)

The Enterprise is held hostage by a being claiming to be Apollo, a God from Earth Greek mythology.  He demands to see Kirk and some crew members on his planet.  Kirk, McCoy, Scotty, Chekov and Lt. Carolyn Palamas beam down and before long learn Apollo’s intentions of having all aboard the ship follow them to worship him. 

Apollo is attracted to Lt. Palamas and he wins her affections by treating her kindly and changing her wardrobe from uniform to a beautiful gown.  She almost falls for him but Kirk is able to talk sense into her.  His anger at her rejection coincides with Spock discovering and destroying Apollo’s power source with Enterprise phasers.  Defeated, Apollo disappears.

“Incident Of The Power And The Plow”
February 13, 1959
(Season 1, Episode 6)

The drovers encounter a bigoted rancher.  They are driven off the rancher’s land because of Favor buying candy for an Indian boy while in town stocking up on supplies.  With Favor and Rowdy’s intervention, war between the townspeople and neighboring Comanche Indian tribe is avoided.

“Incident On The Edge Of Madness”
February 06, 1959
(Season 1, Episode 5)

Lon Chaney, Jr. is the standout here.  His character, Jesse reminds me of Lennie, Chaney’s role in Of Mice And Men twenty years earlier.

A Contemplative Walk
Pine Grove Cemetery
February 19, 2020

I change my route today, to extend my walking therapy.  I decide to go through a local cemetery where I live in Salem, New Hampshire.  I’ve passed it dozens of times since I’ve moved here, but this is my first visit.  At first, what I feel is somber.  I am always humbled when I enter a cemetery.  The gloomy feeling of finality is always present.  I look around and silently bless the dearly departed.  It’s sunny out today so I decide to capture some images of nature.  The sun is vibrant and alive in its’ glowing, powerful presence.  While this is the final resting place for many, the sun watches over them and the living as always.  I notice some dead branches and trees along the way and feel thankful God has granted me another day of existence.

“Amok Time”

9/15/67 (Original Airdate)

2/17/07 (Remastered Airdate)

A great opening to the second season of Star Trek.  Some of Spock’s Vulcan heritage is revealed, making for one of the all time best episodes.  In a surprising, unexpected turn of events Captain Kirk finds himself in a battle to the death against Mr. Spock. 

My favorite Star Trek quote comes from Nimoy as Spock in this episode:  “After a time you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting.  It is not logical, but it is often true.”

“Incident Of The Widowed Dove”
January 30, 1959
(Season 1, Episode 4)

The drovers blow off some steam at a nearby town and Rowdy unwittingly falls for a married woman.  A good episode where tensions arise between trail boss Gil Favor and head ramrod Rowdy Yates.

Finally got around to checking this movie out today.  Interesting and entertaining enough to hold my interest for the duration, but nowhere near as good as the first two Godfather films and Goodfellas.  I very much enjoyed seeing DeNiro, Pacino and Pesci working together.

A Humbling Experience February 7, 2020

Walking With God

I went for a walk today, continuing physical therapy for my right knee.  I look up to the sky and see an opening through the trees.  All at once I feel vulnerable, yet humbled feeling the presence of God.  I am not a religious man, but thank Him for this day, for letting me know He is always here, thinking of Him or not.  The comfort and joy I briefly felt is almost indescribable.  My outlook is usually the glass is half empty.  Looking up, past the trees and into the sky and feeling God’s presence helped me to see, albeit briefly, that the glass is, indeed, half full.
