This amazing Worf/Scorsese mash-up is by The Ring Trick. Our fake film pitch: Worf’s just trying to bring honor to Wall Street while raising his son Alexander while courting AND (spoilers!) winning the heart of the magnificent Jadzia Dax. Coming this summer to a movie theater that only plays movies we want to see. Saddle up, father!
Today’s Morning Roundup wants to talk about confusing action sequences, Bill Nye’s Sisyphean quest to educate, and an analysis of the Doyle references in Sherlock!
- A polemic against incoherent action movies.
- Ryan Britt dons his deerstalker, analyzes the canonicity of Sherlock’s Series 3 premiere.
- Polish your goggles, academics! The 2014 Modern Language Association Convention (the largest academic humanities conference in the US) will host their first steampunk panel next week.
- Somehow, we feel that Bill Nye may be casting pearls before…um…someone who isn’t big on pearls and doesn’t realize that they develop in oysters, but rather believes they just magically appear from nowhere.
- Here’s a list of fantastic monsters from literature! Yaaay, monsters!
- Gaming culture in 2013 still wasn’t terribly friendly to women.
- Archimedes possibly almost invented calculus! In your face(s), Leibniz and/or Newton!
- If you have some spare time this week, you might want to spend it with Ridley Scott and H.R. Giger in this fascinating Alien documentary.
- Finally, via Laughing Squid, start the new year off right by meditating on the mistakes of others!
