Engage….in posting again.

   So much has happened since my last post.  Without going into details, over a week ago we lost our good camera, so it sort of killed any motivation I had to post anything significant.  On top of all of that, we have been crazy busy this year which is great because it seems people really like our shirts and onesies.  I’m going to try to update this more so this is my official attempt to spark the blog motivation.
   The entire time I have been doing this blog, I sort of struggled with a theme.  What exactly is this blog about?  I really have no idea what-so-ever.  Yes, I do use it to plug shirts and ads for our site, but I wanted to make sure I wrote about things that could interest people.  The problem is, I am always all over the map.  I would write about beer, movies, food, house projects, technology, whatever I’m basically into.  So I have given up on sticking with a theme for this blog.  Today I will write about this!

    My friend Pat and I slapped on some nerd shirts and headed to the movies last night to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation.   They are re-releasing the box sets on Blu-Ray, all digitally remastered in HD.  At first, I didn’t care what they were doing, I was just excited to see this on a big screen, but once the show began, the work they put into remastering the episodes that I saw, was incredible.  They really drove home the point that they did not change any of the effects, they only enhanced them visually.  They did not want to fall into the critical eye of nerds getting angry at people messing with the masterpiece.  Two episodes were selected based on the visual appeal they had.  The episodes were “Datalore” and “Where No One Has Gone Before”.

Before

After

    Before episode #1 they showed a mini documentary on how they remastered the episodes with some great behind the scenes things with the original cast.  In between episode #1 and #2 the had a longer documentary where they talked more about the cast and the start of TNG.  They showed Picard’s screen test which was hilarious.  Essentially the end of the night was more of a sales pitch, but I would say its worth thinking about.  Here’s a trailer from comic-con that shows some of the other remastered scenes.  It is pretty awesome.  I would say that if you hadn’t yet bought the first release of the TNG collection, this is a great one to get as it slowly gets released.  Engage!
