Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

The biologist in me frowns upon the use of the phrase "T-Rex."

But anyway... speaking of T. rex:

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!



Something I concocted just this evening, Feel free to pass it along and "bomb" threads that are getting a bit, uh, "passionate" about what constitutes "accepted" or "official" Trek material.

Sincerely,

Bill

Heh. "Let it go" is actually in the script too! Only it was said to Indy by his dad a few seconds later.

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

aww, the filter at my office doesn't allow my browser to display that pic

I am not certain if it counts as a thread bomb but I just found this and I think it's just great (Plus it fits the Trek pic motif) :

In the article to the pic it says:
Writing on his Facebook page, photographer James Barker revealed, “The Make-a-Wish foundation made it possible for 10-year-old Dawn, who has a life-threatening illness, to meet Patrick Stewart backstage. He was about to speak to a packed room of 2000 people, but they sat down and he really focused on her; they talked for about 15 minutes. As things are winding down and she and her family are getting ready to go, Dawn unexpectedly throws him this huge hug, and you can see the happiness in both their faces. Bravo Sir Patrick!”
It’s enough to restore your faith in celebrity humanity.
amen to that and good luck to the kid!

(PS: LOL sorry about the cryptic PM, ZR I only just now realized that you changed your name. Thought you were a new poster *blush* But then I only slept 4 hours last night...)

Sir Patrick is one of the kindest class acts in the business. Both fandom and the world are fortunate to have him with us.

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

well, he was not very kind to his wife of several decades when he dumped her for a far younger woman (don't recvall the year now but it was near the end of when they shot TNG. Last season or the one before it, I think). I used to like him quite a lot before that, but I have to admit that the way he treated his wife somewhat dampened my respect for him.
Still, it's sweet of him to treat his fans in such a gentle way.

^You know, this really doesn't belong in Threadbombs. If you want to discuss this, go to Gen Trek or something.

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

yes it does, but in this specific case the separation was not exactly in mutual consent nor in good style (he made a few very much not gentlemanly remarks if the tabloids quoted him correctly).
Of course that doesn't diminish his merits as an actor or his personal qualities. He is just generally such a nice person that at that time it felt as if he was kindof acting out of character. I think many fans were as shocked as me.

I'm a fan, and this is the first I've heard of it, because I'm a fan of his work, not his life.
