INTRO: I’VE LOVED STAR TREK SINCE I WAS A KID. I STARTED BY WATCHING TNG IN 6TH GRADE. I’VE BEEN A FAN SINCE THEN AND THOUGH I’VE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WATCHING STAR TREK, I’VE NEVER WATCHED THE ORIGINAL SERIES. SO I’M WATCHING ALL THE TOS EPISODES (SOMETIMES DISCO) FOR THE FIRST TIME AND SAYING WHETHER OR NOT THEY SUCK. AT THE END, I GIVE EXAMPLES OF BETTER AND/OR WORSE STAR TREK EPISODES TO WATCH THAT REMIND ME OF THIS EPISODE. USUALLY, I RAMBLE ON ABOUT SOME BULLSHIT BEFORE THE TREK. THAT’S IT.


I’m sure you’ve already heard, but Jeffrey Epstein is dead. If you didn’t, then I’m sorry to have to break it to you this way. Now, before you cue up Sarah McLachlan’s “In the Arms of an Angel” for his memorial you should know that he was actually an objectively…

If I had to pick a least favorite kind of commercial I’d be hard pressed. I guess I don’t have anything against commercials as a rule. I know that commercials are out there for a reason. They work. They get you to buy a company’s shit. Company’s need you to buy their shit. If you don’t, they stop being a company. Commercials are good at getting people to buy their shit. If you don’t think they work on you, you’re probably just too dumb to realize that they do at least a little bit.

I’ve got two pet peeves when it comes to commercials though. When any actor I’ve heard shit on a previous project they’ve been involved in does a commercial I start thinking that actor is a douche. You can’t bitch about the integrity of whatever project you were in that didn’t live up to your artistic standards if you then are willing to pretend you’re very passionate about AT&T a week later. I don’t trust you. And now I don’t trust AT&T.

It also pisses me off when I get advertised like three things in one commercial. I guess it’s all about synergy and whatnot, but I saw a commercial where a woman’s Amazon Alexa reminded her it was almost time to see Avenger’s Infinity War so she hopped in her Audi (or Lexus or whatever, I don’t remember what it was for because it was an ineffective and shitty commercial) and sped off to see the movie. Fuck that. You paid for thirty seconds. You get to sell me one thing. You’re overreaching and I resent it. That’s all I got for way of intro this week. I don’t know. Sorry. I’m gonna be in the woods of Northern Michigan for the next couple weeks. Then I’ll be telling jokes in lower Michigan for a couple weeks. If you’re around you should come and say hi. I’d appreciate it. Know what else I appreciated? This episode of Trek. It was called Assignment Earth, and I liked it.

Recap:

This is the last episode of season 2. It’s a time travel one. The Enterprise is orbiting 1968 Earth just observing. I’m sure something will go horribly wrong. It’s fucked just how cavalierly they treat time travel. Which is kinda impossible. And if it’s possible they should treat it with a little more gravitas than they do. Things go wrong almost immediately. Which is part of the problem with time travel. Shits always going wrong. Something beams aboard. Something or someone? It’s a someone. A dude clutching a black cat. This one is off to a bonkers start and we’re not even at the opening credits yet.


Big day in the life of any and every lifestyle blogger. I got new glasses. Glasses are a big part of being a lifestyle blogger. We literally all wear glasses. Usually, because there’s a lot of eye strain involved in studying and analyzing the latest fads and trends. Getting new…

I’ve read some of the other lifestyle blogs. They seem to all have one thing in common. They’re all sucking the dick of fruits and vegetables.
