Sexual identity is fragile period. It just depends on whether you are hostile to those not of your identification or.. not. Hint: not is the correct answerr

After checking ticket availability for tonight's showings of Star Trek Beyond in other cities, I think the local theatre made the right bet by not bringing it in opening weekend, and going with the kid's movies instead.

No idea when I'll be able to watch Beyond. It's not coming to my local theatre tomorrow in favour of Ice Age and more screenings of Secret Life of Pets. I guess they are expecting a flop. So, my choices are a 3-hr roundtrip drive to watch it or just wait and see if it ever comes to my location.

I hate when I type 0 instead of O, and I don't notice until after publishing.

I feel sorry for my fellow Canadians who will be new to CraveTV. It has the worst web UI, ever. No skip to next episode. No way to navigate to things you'd expect to see while watching an episode. A very convoluted system to even find episode lists.

CBS made a mistake by not choosing either Shomi or Netflix for Canadians.
 
CBS' Star Trek 2017 series will be available on Netflix worldwide - excluding US and Canada. Presumably there you will still need to sign up for CBS All Access. :(
Star Trek fans around the world clamoring for CBS' new take on the universe have an unexpected party to thank for the show's international availability: Netflix. The streaming giant announced today...

That's why I'll torrent it. I can't stand when rights holders bottle up a product I want behind a service I don't. 😡

+Scott Carpenter HA! I'm not at "might as well be a doctor" yet, but my penmanship also isn't what is used to be. Between arthritis and not using a pen in forever, except to jot things down on the family shopping list stuck to the fridge, I just don't use it. But, I'm enjoying this. It's also making my computer's task bar a lot less cluttered because I have a habit of opening multiple notepad files as if they are sticky notes.

He/Him/His. Thank you very much. I wrote a silly article about Canadian English that made national news headlines.
Introduction

Visit my online portal.


Confirmed to be a “Geek God” by some online quiz, Jules Sherred is a parent, author, radio personality,blogger and freelance writer, gamer, tech enthusiast, website designer, science nerd, sci-fi and fantasy freak, hard core Trekker, has an unnatural obsession with Optimus Prime and so much more. Jules emerged from the womb fully embracing geeky tendencies, with a book on Astrophysics in one hand and a deck of cards in the other.

Growing up, games were always an important part of Jules family, including family board game nights, Christmas family poker games and trying to pry the ColecoVision® and later NES controllers from the parentals’ hands. Jules has now passed on this tradition and is raising the next generation of geeks and gamers.

In early 2008, Jules was hired by Party 934 as their Program Director. When the station finally hit the airwaves in September 2008, that is when Jules began to host the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show. Once a week for 2 hours, Jules played a wide variety of music including many geeky songs and discussed with listeners some geek topic of the week.

In 2009, Jules also took on the additional duties of Assistant General Manager of the station and launched the Geeky Pleasures website when the radio show and blog could no longer adequately fill the demand to share what has been called “Jules’ unique brand of geekiness”. Due to a change in circumstances, Jules stepped away from Party 934.

After helping to create and build another radio station in 2010, Jules decided it was time to move on and enable a specific vision to become a reality. With a passion for music, entertaining the world and helping others to realise their same dreams, Jules launched The Look 24/7 in 2011, where the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show, plus more, continue to live.

Jules has had some pretty well-known geeks sit across from the mic during the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show, including interviews with: Wil WheatonJonathan CoultonPhil PlaitSylvester McCoyRichard HatchPaul DarrowPaul and StormR.A. SalvatoreJohn KovalicJohn Scalzi, and so many more.

Other places you can find Jules online are: circle Geeky Pleasures on Google+personal blog, personal Google+,  @GeekyJules, and The United Federation of Planets.

Other sites and publications to which Jules contributes: Quirk BooksStar Wars Vs Star TrekNerdy With ChildrenGeekMomSF Signal, and GeekDad,

Jules is also the geek support for Parsec Award winning The Minister of Chance and is the owner of the largest Star Trek community on Google+.
