Yeah, “men of scifi” was probably inaccurate seeing as the Cumberbatch following coming mostly out of Sherlock (as least as I understand it.) Male geek icons is maybe more accurate and opens up the field for a wider discussion, so sure, feel free to throw whoever you like in there ;-)
When it comes to the JJ ‘verse, if I had to choose, I’m more into to Chris Pine’s Kirk, which is weird, because his portrayal of the character is not my usual preference personality-wise (I’m much more fond of Spock and the supporting crew) or appearance-wise. But really I wasn’t even close to drooling over anyone in Into Darkness or the 2009 movie. Maybe I’m just turned off by the JJ ‘verse, haha. How ‘bout you?
Remember when I said I would post the rules about 8 million years ago? Well I’m just now getting around to it. I apologize for the delay.
Q: What is this all about? A: Naming this blog in a non-lame way.
Q: Who can do it? A: Just about anyone.
Q: Will it cost me anything? A: Nope…though I’d like to not spend more than $50 on shipping (if you’re concerned PM me your state/country so I can calculate some shipping for you).
Q: By when do I have to make a submission? A: June 3rd.
Q: Why should I do this? A: Because this blog needs a better name, it will be fun, and because of PRIZES!
Q: So, what do I have to do? A: I’ll tell you right now! (Below the cut)
^STAR TREK PRIZES! Check it out, friends.
I will be pondering…
Found a promising apartment, sent off an email for more info. Meanwhile, I Google his name/agency to investigate the legitimacy (renting is a huge headache here) and after following a lead, find that he’s a convicted felon. Relatedly, I just learned that liquid LSD is a thing. Hmm, do I want to meet you alone in a strange place? I think not. Reminds me of the time I got a message from a guy on an online dating site, so I clicked his profile. All was going well until the last paragraph or so, where he casually mentioned being a member of the KKK. That was…eye-opening.
