Upcoming stuff and junk

estra

So I still owe a review of a sword and sandal film. No scouts or any extra activity tonight so I may get to see one of those movies tonight and shoot out a review on Friday. Then likely a list of sorts to end of the week. Next week will be a slight stretch more into the action realm as it will be Erik Estrada week.  This will include reviews of Guns, Chupacabra vs. the Alamo and reviews of one or two episodes of CHiPs plus something about his impact on me and why I like him. So put on your sun glasses, strap on your helmet and get ready for Erik Estrada week next week.

A very Klingon Christmas

This new book came across my path recently and I wanted to share my thoughts on it. It was written by Paul Ruditis who has written books based on the characters from Charmed, Buffy the vampire slayer and other series. Patrick Farley is the illustrator. So what we get here is a Klingon spoof/version of ‘Twas the night before Christmas. Anyone the least bis familiar with the Klingons knows they are not the typical warm and cozy Christmas type. So the book throws in elements of Klingon culture into this version including the love of weapons, war and nasty cuisine as well as their fear of things like tribbles. Each page has a fantastic full color illustration and the expressions on the Klingon’s faces in certain situations is priceless. Of course it’s the Trek fans that will loves this and it may very well make a different holiday gift if you know a Trek fan. More casual fans may not catch all of the references. I found myself reading over several times to catch all of the jokes and to really soak in the illustrations. Overall I certainly enjoyed it.
