GI Joe was given Kung-Fu grip in the 70s so that he no longer had to carry a weapon. It was believed that by doing this, we were less likely to be reminded of Vietnam.
I dreamt last night that Capri Sun got a new ad slogan: “CAPRI SUN: It’s Better Than Nothing.”
Get ready for this. Her name is…

I can’t believe what’s happening to childhood out there! Yesterday I’m on the Metro and this little girl starts yelling at passengers. Her mother, dressed in only the finest Park Slope meets Hippie fashion (I’m an overachiever, overprotective, and devoid of any real character, so I’m gonna just borrow some character from Lululululemon) just watched the kid with a look of pride. “Are you a bear!? Are you pretending you’re a bear!? Or how about a lion!?” No lady, she’s a bored 6 year old that looks and sounds stupid. Tell her to shut up. Not everything a kid does is an exercise in creativity at the Chai Beansprout Organic Kids Exploratorium and Preschool.
Well, there were a lot of fun, memorable elements from the original series thrown in there. It takes place across two timelines, which allows for fun time traveling and Spock attempting a highly sophisticated mind meld and transfer that almost kills him. The storyline from present day has a weak antagonist thrown in at the last second that is a bad copy of Earth Liberation Front. It’s a quick read, and it has fun moments where Kirk switches bodies with the son of John Christopher from TOS, but there are better ST books. Book reads quickly. 3 of 5 stars.
If you’re gonna live in DC, or NYC, or LA, live in the middle of it all. Even of you’re an introvert like me, you still feel like you’ve got life blood running around and through you. In rural areas, that life blood is nature. Suburbs? Hell if I know. All the cars and identical streets will suck more blood out.
