Way Cool Wednesday: 28th June 2017

Welcome, one and all, to this month’s Way Cool Wednesday! We’ve got a good mix of sci-fi, silliness, gaming and rock music this time around, so strap yourself in, and check out the awesomeness.

 

WAY COOL ARTICLE: STAR TREK – THE STORY OF THE NEXT GENERATION CREW’S GREATEST MOVIE

Let’s kick things off with some good old fashioned sci-fi fun. I make no bones about absolutely loving Star Trek: The Next Generation. I also have no issue agreeing that Star Trek has had mixed results when it’s boldly gone into movie format. However, Star Trek: First Contact is a wonderful piece of work. This article talks about how the movie cane to be. Enjoy!

 

WAY COOL VIDEO: BAD LIP READING – TWILIGHT

This shouldn’t be funny … but then, I wasn’t a fan of the Twilight saga, and I do enjoy some silliness. The weird thing is, I’m not sure I’d be able to hear any other lines if I re-watched the first film now.

 

WAY COOL BLOG POST: I, AVATAR – DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS

Over at AmbiGaming, we have another thoughtful gaming post. In essence, that’s not unusual; the blog is full of thoughtful postings. This one is a fun one though, that talks about our relationship with the avatars and characters that we play as in video games. Check it out!

 

WAY COOL MUSIC: POETS OF THE FALL – ONCE UPON A PLAYGROUND RAINY [LIVE]

I am in love with this song. The intro is relatively similar to ‘Two Story Town’ from Bon Jovi’s 2000 release ‘Crush’. I love that song too though, so that’s all good by me. The rest of the track is pretty much a typical Poets of the Fall track; it’s a mid-tempo commercial rocker with a catchy chorus, strong vocals, and some high-quality performances from the entire band.

 

So, there we have it. I hope you all enjoyed my random findings for the month. What about yourselves? Have you stumbled across anything cool?

    • Aye, the tone was indeed different. They really made it work though. TNG was the crew I grew up with, so I always get a nostalgic feeling with them. It amazes me how many episodes that I’ve completely forgotten though. Re-runs are good for that.
