Original Audio? Commentary? Why Not Both?

I’m watching the new 4K restoration of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and one of the nice things about this release is that not only are there commentaries, but there are subtitles for the commentaries (this is a very rare thing, unfortunately). So I can watch the movie with the original audio, but pop on the subtitles for one of the commentary tracks to read that as I watch.

At which point Prairie looks at me and says, “Oh my god, you’re such a nerd.”



📚 The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse: A Sam Cogley Mystery by Bob Ingersoll and Tony Isabella

3/2022 – ⭐️⭐️

A somewhat amusing murder mystery and courtroom drama; basically Law & Order: TOS starring Samuel Cogley. Unfortunately, the poor treatment of the two primary female characters (one an overly stereotypical shallow, bitter wife; the other bitter at past events who fares badly) marred my enjoyment.

Preparing for My New Office

Got myself a little “congrats on the new job and your first actual office” present to go on a bookshelf or my desk (y’know, once we’re moved in and I actually have furniture…right now, it’s just a bare office). 🖖

I’ve been eyeballing Eaglemoss’s Star Trek model ships line for a long time. I don’t have the funds or space to do the “collect the whole set” subscription, so I’m glad they also sell them individually so I could get this.
