Well, after much cajoling, my wife has finally convinced me to start up a new Internet endeavor. Suffice it to say, instead of doing my usual regular web designs I’ve decided to do the trendy thing and start up a blog. As for what it is that this blog will be about, the quick answer would be – I have no idea! Actually, that’s a bit of a misnomer since I have some clue as to which topics I would like to expound on but for now let’s just say that it is going to be a mish-mash, hodgepodge of topics ranging the entire gamut from entertainment (movies, video games) to politics (OBAMA!) to what I ate last weekend for dinner. I just KNOW you really need to discover exactly what I stuffed into my stomach!
Since this is my first post in my brand spanking new blog I might as well begin with the obvious — Star Trek and more importantly, WTH is the Galactic Pillow? I won’t get into the grand concept of the Galactic Pillow today (it would take too long to explain) but I will speak a bit about Gene Roddenberry’s creation.

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
Perhaps one of the greatest scenes in cinema history perfect in tone and execution unfolds before the viewer after over 100 minutes of pure visual bombardment punctuated with extreme bouts of violence all coming to an end not with a bang but with a somber moment of tranquility.
Cinephiles will undoubtedly know which film this quote comes from but although I’m known to write movie reviews from time to time this line of dialogue is going to serve a much different purpose here as a jumping off point for this blog.
