well, my research paper for vietnam war and film class had a drastic change. i was gonna talk about platoon and my lai massacre, but since the film and events are so far removed, i had to change it.
she gave me something she'd love to read: the depiction of violence (i know, vague, but i gotta find my argument) in film and t.v. means i've gotta watch "the green berets" (ugh, but we watched it in class and that's one of our requirements), t.v. documentary footage of the vietnam war, and "star trek" episodes that reference the vietnam war. I can't believe i get to do a paper for a class regarding star trek and get a grade on it, yay!
I got all 3 seasons of the original series on DVD--and its the remastered version. That may be sacrilege to some, but i was hoping like crazy that some of the beeping and chirping of the computers would be muted slightly, which i think it did. that noise annoyed me so much i could barely tolerate it, so i didn't watch when i was a kid. Also, the ships and action are clearer and cgi (i usually don't cotton to changes like that) as well as the planets from orbit, which is pretty cool considering the opening credit planet looked like a condensed ball of Chernobyl farts before. either way, i get more spock-like w/ each viewing. oh joy and fun!
now if only i can get these epis watched and noted w/o getting too distracted. only got 21 days left til the paper's due and i haven't even started outlining yet--gah! i'm usually ripping up my 2nd one by now.
