Rewinding Laserbeak

I found this on my feed on Facebook and found it amusing ;-)  In attempting to amplify stuff less over on that site, I decided to post it here. Back when my VW Beetle had a tape deck, I had seen iPod adaptors that converted the audio using a tape casing that had no magnetic tape in it.  I wonder if this is what Laserbeak had on the show ;-)

Star Trek Online: The Pathyaeger

 Here's another April Fools... this time from Star Trek Online, a mashup of the Pathfinder and the Yaeger (and yes, I'd fly this... if it weren't exploding when you first set foot on it 😂)From the announcement:The Pathyeager was the brainchild of Starfleet’s first Pakled ship designer, Nahamcam [Nuh-ham-kam], inspired by the old Dominion War-era USS Yeager and the Clumpships of the 2380s.Splicing

TV Recap of series finales

 Well, it's no longer a binge, so I decided to retitle these posts going forward to TV recaps :-) Here's what was watched in November:SupergirlThis show wrapped up in November 2021 with its sixth, and final, season. The show kicked off on CBS, which was a bit weird given that the rest of the DC superhero show universe was on the CW, but after one season of mediocre ratings on CBS (from what I

TV Binging and Series Finales (part II)

The other post was getting a bit long, so I am continuing it here (who knows, there may even be a part III!)Marvel's Agents of SHIELDI rather liked this series. It follows a group of SHIELD agents who are protecting the earth from whatever big bad happens to exist.

Review: How to Be Black

How to Be Black by Baratunde R.
