Shudder. Somehow the image of 2 sockpuppets trying to get it on made me cringe wondering how that is possible with the mechanics of how that would work. Like there is a farm that breeds those critters for kid's theatre.

I'm gonna have to start watching my sock drawer VERY CLOSELY.....might explain why I have some with no mate to it...they've been reproducing.....

Not using a name based in Greek or Roman mythology was supposed to be clever?
Actually, the name Expo67 is in reference to the 1967 World's Fair and Exhibition that was based in Montreal, Canada. A site that was used in the filming of the original Battlestar Galactica episodes 'Greetings From Earth' and 'Experiment In Terra'(it's footage recycled from that previous two-parter).

In 1979, that same recycled footage would be used in depicting the city of New Chicago in Buck Rogers - In The 25th Century. That same year, it would be used as another filming site for the Robert Altman film 'Quintet' and as a setting for Bill Shatner's Star Trek novel 'Spectre'.

In Shatner's novel, the Expo 67 site was meticulously reconstructed by the Montreal Historical Society.

Judging by the look of those structures, they could have also been used in the production of Star Trek-The Motion Picture.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

There used to be an online movie about sock puppets doing drugs that sort of addressed the isue of the way they breed. It was very funny -- but sadly no longer online.

The joke was in a room full of sock puppets doing drugs, there were two hands making out with one another on a couch with their socks strewn about next to them.

Sounds like a demented comedy sketch from Comedy Central. One in very poor taste.

Funny.

As a famous Vulcan once said. "Most illogical."

And as Dr. Zaius stated in the original Planet Of The Apes. "It's in very poor taste."

There are better anti-narcotics messages than this.

Personally, I take a statement from anyone that says "The only good human is a dead human" with a grain of salt.

Cute. Very cute.

You do realize of course that General Ursus was making a commentary(and a sick one at that)about the human condition and its rotten habit of having a very low regard for life? Especially its own species?

I'm willing to wait and cheer along those who pull it along. I look forward to the release. The Director, Scott said he would like to do a presentation in a brew pub or other arean and give up some of the "behind the sceen" and reflections of the shooting.

Or at least a pinch of salt, and maybe a few lemon slices.

Well...Thank you for coming to the rescue Maurice. Your volunteering to make it happen is most appreciated here on top of all the diffculties Jimm, Josh, Dennis, Joel, David, Scott, Micheal have had to overcome to get to this point.
I don't want anyone thinking that I'M making this happen. I'm involved in trying to help get all the pieces together and make it work, but it's not just me.

We read from the Twenty-Third Scroll, Ninth Verse:

23:9

"Beware the beast man, for he is the devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, or lust, or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him! Drive him back into his jungle lair--for he is the harbinger of death."

Collequially expressed, but entirely accurate in its description of the human equation. If not the shambolic state it is still in.

We read from the book of Colonel George Taylor:

"Does man, that marvel in the universe, that glorious paradox who have sent me to the stars, still make war against his brother? Does he keep his neighbor's children starving?"

"I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe, there has to be something better than Man. Has to be."

Frankly, all this talk about breeding sockpuppets is giving me flashbacks of "Greg the Bunny"...
