I just found out that the first 9 minutes of Star Trek will be released on IMAX with The Hobbit. It got me really excited until I found out that only one IMAX theater in Brazil will be showing the Star Trek footage. UNFAIR! The theater is about one and a half hours from where I live so not too far and I could try to get someone to take me. I still have a few days to think of something.

Firstly, I've posted the cards today, so members of my flist that left your address should receive them in 10 to 15 days and hopefully before Christmas. Sorry about the lateness. I lost my flash drive and only found it today by accident. xD

Secondly, the Star Trek trailer. afsfdffsafsaffsfsdfgsfsdjoij


Oh, for simmers out there, I'm working on a new story. I'm reeeeally excited about this one.

And I'm kind of pissed right now because the present garanteed to be ready today isn't. And I need to deliver it in a couple of hours. Much swearing going on right now.

This makes me a little bit excited.

Make it… geronimo!

Bleeding Cool has squirrelled out news of an upcoming crossover that might send certain minds reeling. That in May, IDW are to publish a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series. Featuring The Doctor, Rory, Amy, Captain Picard, Worf, Data, Geordie LaForge, Deanna Troy, Will Riker and the rest. And that this art, featuring the Doctor, Rory and Amy on the bridge of the Enterprise is a cover that will be used in the series.

Doctor Who has never engaged in any such officially sanctioned crossover outside of the Doctor Who universe before. The closest was Dimensions In Time, a much derided charity telethon show which featured characters from the BBC soap opera Eastenders. Then there was Death’s Head who kinda popped in and out. Star Trek has also seen comic book crossovers with X-Men and the Legion Of Superheroes. But this is the first time that two such major competing TV sci-fi franchises have been allowed to merge in any way before.

Of course this kind of meeting has been the subject of fan fiction thousands of times. But there’s a very special something when it becomes official.

IDW is attending the Gallifrey One convention in a week’s time. I’d expect this to be announced there.

As to the details… CyBorgmen? The Klingoon? The Time Lord Continuum? Dorian of the Ferenghi?

Maybe I should update more often...

Let's see...

Not so cold anymore, but still enough for me to need layers of clothing and consider going to work in pyjamas.

Working like crazy, got payday, it was as good as I imagined. Yay! I've got rent money at least. Nothing more than that, but I'm not complaining.

Bro got a crappy copy of Star Trek. Good enough to kill the need to watch it again.

I wrote yesterday. Yay! Over 1000 words in one afternoon. That's pretty good for someone who hadn't planned on writting anything at all.

Still got no plans for the weekend which is strange. Mom or sis haven't called inviting me for anything... Maybe at last I'll have a Sunday for myself. Maybe I should go watch Terminator. John Connor looks yummy.

There are people at work determined to find me a boyfriend before Valentines Day, which is next week. o_O Do I look that pathetic?
x_erikah_x: (kirk and spock)
I went through my icons and found space for some ST icons xD! Yay!

I don't know why, but I really like this cold. It was something like 7C this morning, and now it's gone up to 13C. It's not winter yet, but it's freezing already and I love it! My mood is always up in the cold and I feel prettier. Must be the color in my cheeks and the lipstick I'm forced to use. ^_^

Still working like crazy and I can't wait till tomorrow, pay day. It's when it's all gonna be worth it. Hopefully.

*sighs* I wish I could watch Trek again.

First of all, I still don't have internet. I tried to catch up, but apologies if I missed something because of the huge gaps in between my LJ time.

Second, I saw it!!! And I loved it!

I went with my brother and sister and it's GREAT to see it and have someone to share your experience with. We spoke during the film several times. xD And I don't even like speaking during films. ^_^ I was slitght spoiled though. *sighs* And of all places, I got spoiled watching Brazilian TV. Can you believe it? They are not the least bit interested in SciFi. *sighs*

Going to the movies was a small adventure in itself. I, my sister and my mom went to the movies in the city we live to watch that Nicholas Cage film. We really liked that. It was over at 6:00pm. We went to my place and out of a sudden we decided to go to another city, Sorocaba, about 1 hour drive, to see if we could catch the last Star Trek showing. My mom couldn't go because of Gabriel. So I drove her home and of we went.

We arrived at the mall at 8pm. The place was packed! Four theaters were showing Angels and Demons, and they were all full. Only one theater was showing ST, but the last one had been at 5pm! Can you believe it?

So, we went to another mall. We got there at 8:30 because of traffic. Again, four theaters with Angels and Demons, all packed. There was only one room with ST and it was dubbed! I HATE DUBBED FILMS! And the next available time would be only at 10PM. So we ate (A LOT!) and after we were done, it was time to go already (We really ate a lot, lol).We were alone at the room, then two groups of people arrived, and one more during the trailers. It was really empty and that place is awful! The walls are dripping water with all the humidity! We laughed a lot talking about the lenghts we go for Star Trek.

We liked A LOT and even talked several times during the movies, something we never do. My brother and sister were so unspoiled for this movie, they didn't even know the actors! It was a true jorney of discovery for them to find who was who.

Spoilers from here on )

My mom invited me to go watch Star Trek on Sunday. Weeeeeeeeeee!!! She's the reason I'm into scifi.

It's all my parent's fault. My mom was the one that taped each episode of TOS to watch with my father. When I got old enough to wait up for my father to arrive from work, we would all gather in their bed and watch one episode every night. We did that everyday for years. We all had each line of dialog memorized. xD Just me, my brother and our parents. My sis was either not born or a baby during those years and, hence, not so much into scifi, though she enjoys it too (just not totally addicted ^_^). We can joke in family speaking Trek language and understand.

Then my aunts, my mom's sisters, got me into Star Wars. One aunt had the trilogy on tape, while the other had many, many books of the extended universe. Guess what? All in English (she's an English teacher xD). I learned most of my English by watching Star Wars, and then by reading the books. I now have hundreds of e-books in a CD. I never counted, but it was nearly them all at the time my aunt gave it to me. I only read 15 of them =(. I need more time to dig through them all.

So, if it wasn't for my mom I wouldn't be here writing the post you now read. I wouldn't have become so interested in learning a new language just because my favorite fandom spoke it. I wouldn't have watched the Stargate movie. I would never have become interested in SG1 and then totally addicted in Atlantis. And internet, GW, LJ, fanfic, writing, teaching, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Farscape...... You get the picture. She opened Pandora's box and released fandom love.

I watch SGA episodes with her when I'm at home. She's not a whumper though. She finds Rodney funny and I get the feeling she's a sparky shipper. Also, she finds Shep handsome (she's a female and I think that's good enough reason for that). She loved The Daedalus Variantions, the last episode we watched together, and said that Ba'al looks like her brother. Her favorite character in SG1 is Jack and didn't watch any episodes after he left. Still, she has no idea her daughter likes to see hot men getting hurt and has a small liking for blood.

We are both very excited about the new Star Trek.
