@kcfennessy no Nick Tosches or Jon Savage? OG Lipstick Traces, BTW – 12:09 AM GMT
.@mcgee_gorgo given what we know about Jor-El and his people, couldn’t he have possibly become the vessel that delivered his child to Earth? – 12:15 AM GMT
.@mcgee_gorgo Perhaps the founding foundling text we all revere is a rework and hermetic palimpsest, shielding our feeble minds from terror – 12:16 AM GMT
.@mcgee_gorgo after all, what here in this world appears to be the product of similar physics and biology save the Great Old Ones? – 12:17 AM GMT
.@mcgee_gorgo observe. I have merely to consider the meme and evidence springs up about me. redbubble.com/people/6amcris… – 12:19 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo it’s actually sort of surprising that it seems to not have been done. – 12:34 AM GMT
@phoebenorth typo [sic] in pull quote THE CREW, “Mister Spook”. which, um. maybe [sic] there would be helpful? later typo too: “Spck” – 04:19 AM GMT
@phoebenorth “One gets a strong suspicion that his Vulcan heritage is considered inferior in this narrative” – continuity note from STID: – 04:21 AM GMT
@phoebenorth In admiral Marcus’ office, there is a model of NX-01 in the flight heritage models on display – 04:22 AM GMT
@phoebenorth implying that the Terran relationship with Vulcan seen in “Enterprise,” full of justified mistrust, applies. – 04:24 AM GMT
@phoebenorth but good stuff! – 04:24 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt @mcgee_gorgo third person future conditional. EC suspense stuff. If he would have remembered the reference correctly. – 04:29 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt @mcgee_gorgo er if he will be remembering the reference correctly. geez. – 04:30 AM GMT
@phoebenorth ah, good point. Narrative values still impose themselves on in-universe plot and character decisions, though. but you’re right. – 04:33 AM GMT
@phoebenorth I think I saw Enterprise casting Vulcans as heavies as caving to 9/11 BS. The rationalists oppose our imperial expansion. – 04:35 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phoebenorth I like the Chewie comparison, well drawn. I think the essay is less about nuSpock & more about nuVulcans, though. – 04:37 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phoebenorth although there is, I guess (and depending on how you count) only one nuVulcan. or a tiny number anyway. – 04:38 AM GMT
@phoebenorth oh, absolutely – the hallmark of the Abramsverse is the misread line inflated into a mistaken premise. Art Bell must be proud! – 04:40 AM GMT
@phoebenorth @arthurwyatt presumably planetary genocide and confused personal cultural identity might do that. also line count, screen time. – 04:42 AM GMT
@phoebenorth hoo boy! seems likely Art & I will take a run at the 70s Trek TV adaptations at some rate over the next few months. – 04:45 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phoebenorth so what you’re saying here implies that Scott/Crumbles, marooned on a remote outpost, succumb to oysterliness – 04:48 AM GMT
@phoebenorth ha, at the bottom of the page he posits Enterprise as a different timeline than TNG. /neckbeard stroke – 05:04 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phoebenorth go to the ex-astris link and page search “Enterprise may take place in a different timeline than TNG” – 05:13 AM GMT
Stanza iOS is aging out again 🙁 – at least there are mature alternatives now. – 03:58 PM GMT
well, wasted an entire morning on deadline doing accounting and chasing prescription-billing boojums and snarks. US workers: most productive – 06:52 PM GMT

@zipties i bounce between the Kindle app for Amazon-sourced material and iBooks. Bluefire is locally developed by friends too. – 11:46 PM GMT
@zipties still have a bunch of apps around from last time Stanza broke too, so evals likely. – 11:46 PM GMT
@hell0jed you should develop a sudden interest in Chinese opera and figure out what it’s from, then be all excited everytime it goes off – 11:55 PM GMT
