Friday Night Open Thread

For the 11th and final time, I’m taking up Friday night with an episode from Star Trek Continues.

The group of actors, some you’ve seen before and some you haven’t, who are fans of Star Trek began creating original episodes that would cover the fourth and fifth year of the “five year mission.” They planned to do 13, but CBS dictated they cease. CBS allowed them to finish he episodes they had scripted and cast, meaning they ended up with 11 episodes.

From just down the road in Kingsland, Georgia, they bought a warehouse, built permanent sets, and from that town of 16,000 residents that boasts both a Burger King and a Weener King, they created the show. So, for the last time, here’s an episode of Star Trek Continues.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

A week or so ago, while trying out the Movies Anywhere service and functionality, it struck me how much I enjoy certain westerns.

Part of my functional testing involved launching a movie in one platform and seeing if it kept up with it on another platform. So, that meant actually watching a movie. Now, you’d think that if I own a movie, I wouldn’t mind watching it again. Well, that might be true most of the time, but I actually own some movies I don’t like. The reason isn’t important.

What is important (at least, at this moment) is that there are movies that I like to watch over and over. The Right Stuff is one, and the one I chose to test. But most of the others are westerns:

There were some of the ones I choose from. There were others, but these were the Final Five from which I chose The Right Stuff. But, I could just as easily picked one of those four westerns.

That’s when it occurred to me that I might like westerns. I never considered myself a fan of westerns. But, based on the fact that four of five “will watch again any time” movies I own are westerns, it caused me to rethink that.

Then, Harvey comes along and mentions a Webpage article that talks about The Best Westerns Ever Made. Or something like that.

Some of those are really good movies. Some, not among my favorites. I noticed that Blazing Saddles wasn’t on that list. That means the list is automatically heresy and and should be burned and the earth around it salted.

Now that I got that off my chest, what’s on yours? Got something you’d like to share? It’s Wednesday Night Open Thread.

I saw this and had to watch it. Because I know a lot of people who use these cleanse things. And, what made it hilarious was that when I watched it, it had an ad for an actual cleanse thing. I am not making this up.

Sunday Night Open Thread

I’ve noticed that I’ve been watching The YouTube a lot lately. Used to be I thought of it as the place to go if you wanted to watch cat videos, but not good for much else. Well, I suppose it’s useful for more stuff than that now.

I’ve even moved The YouTube app to the top of the menu on my Apple TV and my Roku. I put the stuff I use a lot at the top, and the rest is pretty much alphabetical. The YouTube is no longer near the bottom.

Does that mean The YouTube is better? Or that my standards have fallen? Or both?

While I ponder that, why don’t you offer something else for me (and everyone) to ponder? Since it’s now time for Sunday Night Open Thread, that means it’s time for you to share what’s on your mind. Something profound. Something stupid. Other songs by Nancy Sinatra. Whatever.
