So, I have mixed feelings about the â€œnew & improvedâ€ â€œSpecial Effectsâ€ in the Star Trek: TOS Blu-Ray discs I got yesterday. Iâ€™ve already ripped the first season, and watched a couple of episodes, and have this thought: The â€œNew & Improvedâ€ â€œSpecial Effectsâ€ arenâ€™t that good. They sort of remind me of the â€œSpecial Effectsâ€ in â€œThe Last Starfighterâ€ (which did not look realistic at all). They look kinda good, but fake. But Iâ€™d have to rate them slightly better than the original effects. Hence the mixed feelings. But the enhanced video is great!
Almost a fairly normal Sunday around here. Most of the chores are done. Most of the laundry is done. Spent most of the day ripping season 1 of Star Trek: TOS and some of SWMBOâ€™s cdâ€™s. Finished getting my â€œshackâ€ and radio set back up after Field Day. Finally got rid of some of the mess on my counter-tops.
Tomorrow weâ€™ll be going to the annual pancake breakfast at the church. Then we may, or may not, â€œgo for a drive.â€ I was thinking of just heading North on HWY 101 and seeing what we see. But SWMBO reminded me that I really want to work on that wire I need to move to finish putting that new cabinet in the wall. Hmmm. Take a drive with my Schweetie or do something around the house? Hmmm.
Anywho, thatâ€™s it. This Old Guy is off to bed and his book.
