Kelloggs Gorn Flakes


CONGRATULATIONS BISH DENHAM!

EIGHT YEARS OF BLOGGING!










Hey Trekkers, haven't you heard of Kellogg's Gorn Flakes? 

1. G is for the thick crunch of flakes which tastes so good.
2. Strawberries, saurian brandy and rocks add punch. So whats the secret ingredient?
3. Well you got me but I suspect Captain Gorn knows -
4. Judging from Captain Kirk's expression, it looks like "Tiberius" wants to know too.
5.  Just remember trekkies, take it easy with Kelloggs Gorn Flakes.





Rock long and Prosper, trekkers, trekkies and bloggies.

Simon Peggs Geekspeak




Simon Pegg apologised recently for making geeky comments which I think are interesting. Oh well, I guess nobody's perfect. Whats the big deal anyway? He was only speaking his mind.

Despite his reputation as a poster boy for geeks, he told Radio Times magazine: 

“Before Star Wars, the films that were box-office hits were The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Bonnie and Clyde and The French Connection – gritty, amoral art movies.

 “Then suddenly the onus switched over to spectacle and everything changed … I don’t know if that is a good thing.”

 Pegg, who played chief engineer Scotty in the recent Star Trek films, added: 

“Obviously I’m very much a self-confessed fan of science fiction and genre cinema but part of me looks at society as it is now and just thinks we’ve been infantilised by our own taste. 

 “Now we’re essentially all consuming very childish things – comic books, superheroes. Adults are watching this stuff, and taking it seriously. 



 “It is a kind of dumbing down, in a way, because it’s taking our focus away from real-world issues. Films used to be about challenging, emotional journeys or moral questions that might make you walk away and re-evaluate how you felt about … whatever. 

 “Now we’re walking out of the cinema really not thinking about anything, other than the fact that the Hulk just had a fight with a robot.”

 The Mission: Impossible star said he wanted to take on more dramatic roles. 

 “Sometimes (I) feel like I miss grown-up things,” he said. “And I honestly thought the other day that I’m gonna retire from geekdom.
