Shades Of Qo’noS

Sometimes life imitates art; sometimes art shapes life. That latter seems more true of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, which less predicted than caused what was the future for that franchise.

The NYPD’s Discommendation Of de Blasio
(Click to Enlarge)

In this particular case, the shades of the Klingon homeworld could be seen as hundreds of police officers turned their backs on a screen showing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio speaking at the funeral of one of the two NYPD officers assassinated last week by a Black insurrectionist. It looked a lot like the Klingon ceremony of Discommendation, in which the individual is ceremonially shunned, stripped of honor, and severely reduced in social status due to his crimes.

Some – those who either are part of the Black Problem or side with those that are, and/or those with deep-seated psychological scarring and resultant pathologies – may well disagree with me, but I find this public shaming and shunning of de Blasio by the NYPD to be a very fitting start to his punishment for his dishonor and disloyalty.

Break The Franchise

That's not an ass. It's a space station
Kim Kardashian – Break The Franchise

It may be redundant, as Lucas managed to fairly authoritatively break Star Wars with his prequels, episodes I – III, let’s give Kim Kardashian and her ass a shot at it.

That’s no moon. It’s a space station.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi
Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Just because the celebutante couldn’t seem to manage to break the internet doesn’t mean she can’t break an already fractured franchise. 😉

Still Looking Good

After all these many, many years David and Nichelle are still looking good
David And Nichelle Are Still Looking Good

Time passes and with it pass those who were dear to each of us, so it’s good to see that some old associates are still looking good. Better in its own odd way, though David, Nichelle, and I haven’t had any interactions for close to 30 year, my wives now work closely with them on a regular basis and they’re all friends.
