I’m back with another music video win

27 08 2010

Lots of catching up to do…Favre is back with the Vikings, yay! And I just learned that I won in the Music Video Contest at the Las Vegas Star Trek Creation Convention a couple weeks back. I entered an ensemble video, “To Boldly Go.” Alas, I don’t know when the video was played, but I’m told the crowd enjoyed it, which is the whole idea.

For those of you who haven’t seen the video, here ye go.

As always, comments are welcome.


2010 Star Trek calendars

8 01 2010

A few days ago I set out to make a Star Trek: Enterprise calendar for my computer desktop, using some of the lovely high-quality production stills I have collected over the years, and maybe a few screencaps of my own. I figured I’d be able to throw the calendar together in a day or two. Ha! Took me a lot longer — largely because there were just too many pretty pictures to choose from. I ended up making four calendars, each with a different focus: the ensemble cast, T’Pol, Trip Tucker, and Trip & T’Pol.

If you’re in the market for a calendar, I hope you take a look.

Insomnia –> music video

5 12 2009

I’ve had a stressful couple of months, and I haven’t been sleeping well. When it’s tough to sleep, and even harder to focus, I typically spend the wee hours working on a new music video.


Title: Out of the Ashes
Genre: Star Trek: Enterprise
Subject: Vulcan arc, Archer, T’Pol
Music: Steve Jablonsky, from his “Transformers 2” score

Downloadable files on my website.

I still can’t sleep… Perhaps there will be another video in my future before things settle.

The Mannerly Art of Disagreement, by Macedon

16 10 2009

There used to be a link at TrekBBS, in the old Rules, to a document called “The Mannerly Art of Disagreement.” It was originally written for the Alt.StarTrek.Creative newsgroup, but I found it an invaluable guide for anyone who engages in discussion, debate, or objective analysis.

Alas, the link to the guide no longer exists. 😦 Perhaps it will turn up someday on the Wayback Machine. In the meantime, I provide it here as a public service: just click on the link at the top of the page. I have referred to it often in my job as moderator at TrekBBS, and I highly recommend it. Thank you, Macedon, wherever you are, for writing it.

Love in yet another language

16 09 2009

I just added a Turkish translation to Trip’s “I love you” Rosetta Stone. It’s up to twenty-four languages now!

More production stills for my Enterprise collection

9 09 2009

TrekCore and I have been doing some trading back and forth, and we have both significantly increased our respective collections of Enterprise production stills and behind-the-scenes photos. Being a TV/film buff, I have always enjoyed collecting BTS pictures from my favorite movies and TV shows, but it used to involve driving into Hollywood and prowling through all the movie-memorabilia shops (not to mention going hog-wild buying cool stuff 😉 ). Nowadays, the Internet has given me access to a huge amount of material.

You can find links to my ENT pics on the Multimedia page of my website. And if anyone has photos they’d like to share, I’m always interested!

Another Enterprise music video! Welcome to the Empire.

14 08 2009

I seem to have been bitten by the music video bug; I finished another one. This one has been on my mind since I heard the music last year (from “Transformers,” by Steve Jablonsky) and it screamed out “Mirror Universe!” to me.

Title: Mirror Images

It’s available for download at my website. Enjoy!
