Beam me up Scotty

Thanx to Mamoi for yesterday’s bbq gathering…i’m expecting another one lagi ni next week…. u knw… sempena someone’s birthday.. heeeeeee~ Now, moving on..

This is the teaser poster for the highly anticipated 11th Star Trek film to be directed by J.J Abrams (Lost, Mission Impossible III). No plot details are available at the moment, but there are talks going around which indictaes that the film will somewhat be a prequel just as Casino Royale was to the 007 franchise. As many of you know by now, Spock will be played by non-other than Zachary Quinto@ Sylar from the hit series, HEROES. In addition, it has been confirmed that the original Spock, Leonard Lemoy will also have a role/cameo in the film.


With regards to Captain Kirk.. well, nothing has been announced yet, however, there are growing demands by fans notably, for Matt Damon to get into William Shatner’s shoes…so I guess we’ll just have to see… In the meantime, here are confirmed details on casting details for the film courtesy of AICN:

Feature Film

[JAMES KIRK] 23-29 Handsome,cocky self assured and earnest. Great physical condition. 6 ft or less

[LEONARD(BONES)MCOY] -28-32 Medic on the Enterprise. Smart, clever and a bit danger-loving. Dark hair, blue eyes.

[UHURA] 25ish -African American. Brilliant, beautiful, heroic and FUN!, Uhura is almost tom-boyish – as if she grew up in a houseful of brothers.

[SULU] 25-32 -Asian American male (preferably Japanese). Helmsman on the Enterprise. Extremely fit, capable and dedicated. A bit of a wildcat

[MONTGOMERY(SCOTTY) SCOTT] -28-32 a brilliant ship’s engineer. Must be able to do a flawless Scottish accent!

Simple enough isn’t it…I mean, pfft… c’mon~ if these are the criterias, then even I can easily play Captain Kirk…pffft~..except for the ‘cocky self-assured’ bit that is.. coz that is soooooo not me.. Matt Damon Schmademon~ .. if that doesn;t work out, then i guess, I’ll just have to jump into the typecasting wagon and just play the boring Asian dude… sigh…

As many of you knw by now, the iPhone was shipped to Brunei a few days ago for viewing and ‘testing’ at AV Electronics..Unfortunetaly for interested buyers, the phone won’t be available until 2008 in our region as i mentioned a couple of months back when the iPhone was launched in the States.. However, there seem to be more disappointments than satisfaction from customers… so ours may be long overdue, but let’s just hope it’ll function way better… least give us a 3G capable iPhone…

Ok.. putting all that aside, the Brunei unveiling of the iPhone and the technical stuff was not really what I intended to post…  rather, here’s an inspirational TRUE story courtesy of Gizmodo about the great lengths a man is willing to go through to fulfill his dreams… i hope it inspires us all…haha


Sean Johnson, a confessed Apple Fanboy wants his iPhone….badly… In January, after years of rumors and speculation, he watched in awe as Apple finally introduced the iPhone to the world. Unfortunately for him, he already had his budget spent. Fast forward to June 29th, Sean Johnson took his kids on a road trip to Boise while his wife was at home taking care of the baby. After dropping his kids off at the hotel, he drove to an AT&T store, and purchased a new 4GB iPhone without Wife Clearance.

Yes, in some parts of the world this probably means getting your genitals compeletly severed but fortunately for Sean, he only had to return the phone when his wife found out and told him that his behaviour was absolutely unacceptable.

Two days later she joined him in Denver. He was sad, non-talkative, down, depressed. Noticing it, she broke the question:

— “Honey, how badly you want the iPhone?”
— “Badly”, he said, puppy eyes again, no doubt – very badly.

— “Would you be willing to finally make that appointment for a vasectomy?” she replied.

What happened then? In Sean’s own words:

“I absolutely love my new 8GB iPhone.”

sigh.. the things we do for our better half……or in this case, an iPhone
