Trekking Through Hobbit Holes "You…have set my feet in a spacious place." Psalm 31:8

Hi, peeps! Time for a Currently Post because “I’m running out of time I’m running out of time and my time’s UP, rise UP, eyes UP!” And no, that reference does NOT mean I’m about to duel Aaron Burr–but time seems to be slipping out of my fingers these days and a “Currently Post” is all […]

If you want the short version, here it is: Star Trek Beyond is the finest installment of the franchise reboot, and I absolutely loved it. Of course, short versions are always a little simplistic, so allow me to wax eloquent for a few more paragraphs 😉 Over the past year I’ve become a walking, talking Star Trek: The Original Series […]

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! The first full-length trailer for Star Trek Beyond is in our possession. Move outta the way, Batman v Superman and Captain America–it’s time to boldly go from now till July 22! After dissecting the trailer I have many opinions and theories, and I’m extremely pleased with what we actually know about the movie and the hints Abrams/Lin/Pegg have packed into […]

IT’S HERE!!! IT’S FINALLY HERE! (Or rather, it will be tonight!) I am aggressively avoiding all spoilers from now until Sunday afternoon, which is when we plan on seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I won’t read a single article, I won’t even search for it on Twitter to see what people are saying. I promise. […]

(I can’t take credit for the following Adorable Cleverness and I can’t even find out who wrote it. There are, apparently, various and slightly-different versions all over the internet. But I laughed my head off and couldn’t resist posting it here, with a few very minor edits.) Twas the night before Christmas and all through the ship […]

This one looks like so much fun–thank you Ivy Miranda for tagging me! So sorry it’s taken me so long to get to it, though…’twasn’t intentional. Female characters…female characters have always been SO difficult for me. If you look at my list of favorite fictional characters, the overwhelming majority are male, and I’m not sure if […]

[Reposting because of technical difficulties with the first version. So sorry about that!] So I was alerted to this via Tumblr the other day and loved the idea. Today is the day where we give our favorite authors and their stories a big shout-out, so I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite stories that I’ve collected on my […]

I collect three things: books, movie soundtracks, and FunkoPOP figurines. You know, the little vinyl chibi versions of Beloved Fictional Characters? Square heads, big round eyes, with astonishingly accurate little details that make them unique? If you recall, I bought a tiny Lady Sif back in January or February, and got Thor for my birthday. I […]

Season 2 of Star Trek has been my favorite. Not only are all the characters well-established, but the stories are better (in my humble opinion, anyway). Keep in mind we’re still skipping the irredeemably weird episodes and enjoying only the good stuff. And I’ve named them in order from favorite-to-least-favorite again! Yay! 1. The Ultimate Computer […]

Now that we’re into Season 2 of Star Trek: The Original Series, I thought I’d give my mini-reviews of the episodes we watched from the first one. And lo and behold, they ARE arranged in order of favorite to least-favorite! I was able to do that for once. Wonders never cease. 1. “The City on the Edge of Forever” […]

Brain: “Shame on you, Maribeth. Neglecting your blog for two whole weeks.” Me: “I’m sorry, but–” Brain: “You call yourself a blogger–what is your problem?!” Me: (*flustered*) “I haven’t had anything to say! And experience has shown me that forcing a blogpost is never a good idea. Besides, nothing particularly interesting has happened recently.” Brain: “Pish-posh. You had […]

Well, the unthinkable has happened. My dad and sister roped me into watching some stupid-awesome show called Star Trek–and now I’m running around doing Vulcan salutes and mentally sobbing over phrases like “Second star to the right and straight on till morning.” To paraphrase Pietro Maximoff, I did not see this coming. But before we get into this interesting post, I […]
