    That is controversial! I mean, I liked both, but Ezri got a lot of hate ... to be expected, when you're replacing a fan favorite, but yeah...

    KILL BILL is a remake of François Truffaut's THE BRIDE WORE BLACK (1968), starring Jeanne Moreau. I suggest watching that to get the plot.

    Tarantino is a French New Wave fan--thus the name of his production company--A Band Apart--from Godard's great movie, BANDE À PART (1964).

    Eh, here’s a Star Trek related one: Deep Space 9 was the greatest heir to the cerebral, high concept idealism of Rodenberry’s Star Trek *because* it was willing to challenge that idealism and justify it. While other Star Trek shows may use DS9’s willingness to challenge the status quo as an excuse to act out on their part, DS9 was actually much more akin to TOS in terms of its mix of idealism with reality.

    I will agree with this. Look at how they handled greed with Quark, Sex (Quark talking about what the Holosuites are really used for) and Quark again trying to blackmail his Dabo girls into sex, Dax and Worf and their little sex jokes, violence in the form of war, The masque episodes pointing out that people who live on the fringes of the Federation do not have this paradise life, religion vs Science in the form of the Prophets, and racism in the great episode Far beyond the Stars with Bennie Sisko.

    And I think this show had more character evolution then any other show. Kira going from being angry all the time to just mildly pissed off, watching Jake and Nog grow up and become the men they are, Though I liked nog's story more as he grew a lot more as a character then Jake I think. Sisko going from hating the Emissary to embracing the role.

    it is by far not only the best Star Terk but did a much better job at handling issues then the others.

    DS9 often felt like the only one to really make a supposedly capitalism-free society seem genuinely interesting and workable even though Roddenberry had made far more “preachy” episodes elsewhere and even though DS9 pointed out the problems with it a few times as well.

    Nog praising the Federation for being able to give Rohm a better purpose and sense of self-worth than the Ferengi did made a powerfully blunt statement about the pitfalls of capitalism better than a hundred of Rodenberr’s early TNG attempts to just have straw men get castigated by Picard.

    And I say that as a pragmatic capitalist!

    So...personally, I felt the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame lost whatever credibility it had as an institution recognizing a specific genre of music years ago. But these days I'm really curious as to how certain artists get nominated and who does the voting. Some of the choices just seem really arbitrary to me.

    To be honest it should just be called the Music Hall and Fame. You cant call it the Rock and Roll Hall of fame and have Chet Atkins, Bob Willis and the Texas playboys, LL Cool J, NWA, and 2Pac in there. I mean Hell in what world are the Bee Gees Rock and Roll?

    I don't disagree and it'd probably be better if they called it the Pop Hall of Fame (but then I'd want Sinatra and Doris Day in there). But to the point, I think LL did get nominated but here's the thing...does Cool James consider himself a rock n roll artist?

    Oh, I know he's one of the top dogs and I feel that's part of the problem. Like why is Janet Jackson rock n roll but not Motorhead? Or better yet ( and nothing against Bruce Springstein's wife, but...) why is Patti Scialfa in and not The Runaways?

    I miss being younger before the invention of cell phones when hanging with your friends meant that 50 percent of the time you were going to places you thought they were and hoping they were there. The 90's was like one big ass Where's Waldo that always ended at the food court of the mall.

    Back then hanging out with one's friends meant just that. Now, there is always one who is spending the entire time on the phone.

    If you were in another country, you didn't expect to get a text or email every day from your friends and family back home. You'd maybe send a postcard or write them a letter every now and then. If it was something urgent, you might pay the cost of a long distance phone call. And if you didn't hear from them for a few months, it was no big deal. You were halfway around the world from them and you were gone.
