:: Well, the track listing for the score CD for Star Trek is out there, and...well, let's just say that these track titles don't make it easier to take this movie seriously. Do we really have a Trek score with track titles like "Hella Bar Talk", "Run and Shoot Offense", and "Does It Still McFly"? Sorry to geek out here, but come on now.
(The music is by Michael Giacchino, J.J. Abrams's composer of habit. I'm of mixed mind on Giacchino: he writes decent enough music, but each time I hear him I get the sense that he's doing more pastiche of other composers than producing his own work in his own voice. So I'm concerned that this score will consist of him aping Jerry Goldsmith.)
:: I know that Republicans have pretty much gone batshit insane over the last year, but now they've reached a point where Little Green Footballs is saying "Whoa Nellie, we need to stop being so crazy". Wow.
That's about it. It was a slow week for funny weirdness, I guess. (And one of these isn't even funny weirdness, just me enjoying a political trainwreck.)
