The end of our Star Trek Journey… or just the beginning

Today marks the day that my family and I have officially watched every single Star Trek episode.  Yes, all of them! We started several years ago watching them in chronological (by release date) order with Star Trek: The Original Series (3 seasons), mixed with Star Trek: The Animated Series (a little oft forgotten two season […]

“That one is successful, so let’s make another identical one.”

There’s a trend that I am trying to break.  It’s basically the fact that I keep seeing the theme of “That one is successful, so let’s make another identical one.” This can be seen in many places: Television shows: How many cop, lawyer, or doctor shows do we need? Times of television shows: “No one […]

How to: Make a Star Trek Guinan Hat

Only 4 days until Super Star Trek Sunday on February 1st.  In preparation for the costume contest, I’ve been assembling costume parts for my family and myself.  After much debate, I’ve decided to dress up as one of my favorite Star Trek characters: Guinan. Since I was drawn to the purple/eggplant outfits of Guinan’s, I’ll […]

Top 10: Favorite Guy Movies Viewed in 2008

This is a guest post from my husband, Greg: As with 2007’s list, these are movies I watched (or re-watched) over the previous year.  They didn’t necessarily come out in 2008.  Since we usually wait for movies to come out on DVD rather than go to the theater, I tend to see things a bit […]

Anatomy of a Great Television Series

As a writer, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the entertaining medium of storytelling. With every fall season’s new television shows, I’m reminded again exactly why some fail quickly, others fail slowly, and why some are huge successes indefinitely. Want to create a fantastic long lasting television series? Then take the following into […]

“But what about MATH?”

I always find the above question regarding our children’s Unschooling lives to be proof of the poor job modern public education is doing in regards to actually helping our children learn. Adults today are often fearful of mathematics, believing that it is hard, boring, and impossible for a person to learn unless forced upon them. […]

Free Online Television

In the mood to catch a little television from the past? Check out Joost. These shows are free, but they have commercials built in (both as pop-ups and full commercials that cannot be skipped). I’ve checked out other sites, but this one is legal, quick, and simple (so I like it). Read this article if […]

Why I’ll Never Be Replaced By a Computer (and Neither Will You)

Contrary to television shows, people cannot be replaced by machines! Computers are not capable of original thought. Humans are. Computers, and their software, only do as they are programmed. They cannot do more, or less, than the human(s) in charge of them have designed and programmed them to do. The world will always need people […]
