Two new shows I’m really looking forward to. Of course, they’re both on networks that I don’t have and I don’t really want more subscriptions. I remember when there was only (over-the-air) broadcast, then broadcast + cable, then satellite, and now network app-subscriptions. If we continue down this path, pretty soon we’ll have to subscribe to every show individually!
Trexels: Pixelated Star Trek Characters
Trexels, is an awesome limited edition print by John Martz and Koyama Press, featuring 235 pixelated Star Trek characters. I want this!
The print measures 8.5 x 11 and is printed using an 8-colour archival printing process on 100% cotton rag museum-quality paper. The print will go on sale here on Tuesday, April 12th, 2011. There’s no price mentioned, but I’m guessing it’s not going to be cheap. And, they’ll probably go pretty fast.
There’s also a contest to win a free print for the 2 people who can name the most number of characters. Details are on the site.

I really can’t justify fifty bucks on it, but I absolutely love this Spock Monkey.
Star Trek Burger King Commercial
I just love this commercial for Star Trek and Burger King. The Burger-King-Klingons crack me up.
I know I’ve been posting a lot of commercials lately, but there’s just been so many good ones coming out.
Noma Bar’s May 2009 Limited Edition Spock Cover for Esquire
I just love this illustration of Spock for the May, 2009 (limited edition) issue of Esquire Magazine. It’s by famed illustrator Noma Bar. His work is really wonderful.
I can’t find a site for Noma, but you can see more of his work by doing a Google image search. He also has a book available at Amazon.
Space Energy Comes From Sugar Smacks

Star Trek T-Shirts
I came across these Star trek t-shirts a while back, and I think they’re great. I own the gold one. $24.95 (usd) is a bit steep for a t-shirt, but they are top quality.
Anne Marie is slightly embarrassed to be seen with me when I wear it. :)
