Yes I Did!

Yeah, I finally took the plunge and got my tattoos done. I've been thinking about getting a tattoo for a while now, but I sat in the chair today. On my right forearm is a medical caduceus with the script Type 1 Diabetic and the left forearm is a 24th century Starfleet insignia. I'll post some pictures once they heal sufficiently.

I'm glad I finally did it!

Terra Redux

Well, wouldn't you know it?? Only hours (I think 16) after finishing the previous Terra wallpaper, I found some artwork by Amanda Conner featuring the original Terra! So, of course, I had to incorporate it into the picture.

R.I.P. Majel Barrett Roddenberry

Courtesy of The Beat:
Majel Barrett Roddenberry, widow of STAR TREK creator Gene Roddenberry, passed away today at the age of 76.

She had just recently finished voice work for the new STAR TREK movie, reprising her role as the voice of the ship’s computer.

In the original series, she played Nurse Chapel, as well as Number One in the original TREK pilot “The Cage.”

People forget she was active in Star Trek even before William Shatner was... I'm glad she was involved in the upcoming film and am truly sorry her contributions to the Star Trek mythos are over.

Evil Under the Sea!

I finally got to see the latest episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. It featured a cool intro with Batman and the Atom teaming up to take on Felix Faust (very cool).

Then, on to the main story, which sees Batman and Aquaman facing off against Black Manta and Ocean Master! Here's what stuck in my head afterward:

Good:
Aquaman's telepathic powers look and sound like an update on an old classic!
Mera makes a couple of cameo appearances!
Black Manta (look and sound)!
Aquaman really puts off a fun vibe!

Bad:
Orm (Ocean Master) is a full Atlantean brother to Aquaman and has telepathic powers.
Aquaman's boastful attitude.

Throughout the show, Aquaman is heard boasting about his many adventures, like "Coral Reef Rescue!", and the like. It makes me want to check titles of old Aquaman stories to see if the writers took them from the comics! Some of them sounded to me like they could have been authentic titles! That would be a neat thing, if it were true! I'll have to jot down all the titles mentioned and then cross reference them to the story titles. Perhaps I can get it done this weekend...

Anyway, I enjoyed this show and look forward to future appearances from the Sea King! Maybe they'll tone the attitude down a bit...

Lone Ranger

I'm not a big Lone Ranger fan or anything, but this picture reminded me of the TV show, so I thought I'd try turning it into a wallpaper.
