AquaJam Redux!

I found a better background for Tempest, did some recoloring, and moved the logo to make a much nicer wallpaper, IMO.

AquaJam!

Just something I threw together because I couldn't sleep. These are all great images I've been wanting to use for some time.

Space Ghost Redux

I found some more great Alex Toth artwork and decided to see if I could improve on my earlier Space Ghost wallpaper. Did I succeed?

It's Begun...

And Star Trek has started filming!! And this is going to be one film that'll be hard to get details about. A photographer was able to snap pictures of extras moving around on the studio lot, but they were all wearing full length trenchcoats so you couldn't see their uniforms! Talk about a cover-up! :-)

I have a feeling the uniforms will be tastefully updated and probably follow the original series color schemes, but I think the colors won't be as bright as on the original show. We'll see. I was able to confirm from the pictures that the Original Series sideburns have not returned in this movie. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I wish we could get some pictures of the Enterprise though. I want to see how the art directors re-imagine such a classic design!

Enjoy your long weekend and remember those who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms.

Aquaman DVD

I finally got my hands on a copy! Unfortunately, it was priced around 40 dollars, but no sacrifice is too great for Aqua-merch! When there isn't much, you have to support everything you can get, and boy am I glad to have picked this set up!

This is the cartoon that made Aquaman my favorite hero... This cartoon aired along with the Adventures of Superman as the Superman-Aquaman Hour of Adventure! Also interspersed were cartoons featuring The Flash, The Atom, Green Lantern, Hawkman, The Teen Titans, and the Justice League! In fact, these were the cartoons that got me interested in the heroes of DC Comics!

I wonder if they'll ever release a set of all the other Filmation DC Heroes stuff... that would be nice to see some day.

November is Here...

But thankfully the snow isn't yet. I know, I know, it's only a matter of time. I'm just not ready for winter this year.

November is also the month the new Star Trek movie starts filming... Whoo-Hooo! Only 13 months to wait until opening day! Well, 13 months and 24 days (the movie opens Christmas Day 2008) Let the countdown begin!! :-)

I hope it's worth the wait.

Also, I've placed a poll over on the left-hand side of the page. I know this blog doesn't get a lot of traffic, but I thought I'd try to be a little more interactive. I'm planning for a new poll every month, so I'd appreciate your vote! Thanks in advance!
