I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends.
Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages?
I am Hatboy.
I love starships.
I love scifi.
Great kick-off for the week.
Bonus Easter Egg:
Tom Paris was the pilot (the backup pilot, after the first died) of the USS Voyager. The pilot of the Astro Tramp 400 was Tippy Ghee, a non-referential character … but the secondary pilot was Arlin San Genevieve. Why?
Because San Genevieve is the Patron Saint of the city of Paris.
Levels upon layers.
This video inspired me so hard, I now have a Nicki Minaj song on my iPod.
That was Nicki Minaj??
I guess I simply have to accept that… I like Nicki Minaj.
Just go with it, man. Let it happen.
I think I’ll just let that video wash over me again.
(Seeing as how we discovered water droplets leaking from behind the switchboard (sähkökaappi) last night and are now out of power in parts of the house, I need the boost.)
Ugh, that sucks. I think I’ll watch the video again too.
Hey, when exactly are Deadpool tickets coming on sale anyway? Come on, Finnkino. Get with the program!
Beats me. The premiere is on Feb 12, so I would guess by Feb 9 at the latest (as a rule, the preceding Tuesday for movies that open on a Friday). Sadly, this ain’t an event like Star Wars where you get to prebook months in advance.
Sweet Jesus, that’s one of the best videos I’ve ever seen. And now I want to re-watch so much shit now! Highest on the list, “AMELIA POND! Get your coat!”
Almost as good as your video:
