Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Saw the D23 teaser-thing. I was... Unimpressed. The snips from earlier episodes only served to remind me that those films were much, much better. (I was also struck by the fact that they were out of order internally and externally.) Luke's voice-over was like a cold shower for whatever anticipation ...

Re: What's the last book you read?

The History in English Words by Owen Barfield. I've heard about that one! Would you recommend it? Yes, I think I would. It was not an enjoyable read. The style is a tad archaic, if I may engage in a little hyperbole. For instance, the paragraphs that span pages strike one as just a little too long....

But, then, they never were too worried about that sort of thing in Trek. During the original run there were a great many inconsistencies, and they only had one program to keep track of, which they were making up as they went along. True. And I'll admit, its not a huge issue for me. I have nitpicker...

What I was after was a refresher on the mechanics of hereditary in organisms; what I got was a lot of bilge about race, class and gender.
