iSportsTimes.comIn saying this, my definition of “nerd” is more intangible than a Star Trek die-hard with bad hygiene. Basically, its not what you like that makes you a nerd, but how you like it. A guy who likes the Star Wars movies isn’t a nerd, because who doesn’t … …read more Source: Star Wars News From Google ...

The 2013 Cal-Stanford Big Game Luncheon annually held the week of the Cal-Stanford Big Game was a rousing success – considering. First, Stanford Head Football Coach David Shaw skipped the event for the second straight year. The last time Coach Shaw came up from The Farm to San Francisco for the Guardsman’s Fairmount Hotel mid-day party and charity to raise...

Comic Con 2013 has an army of thousands of cosplay folks, especially women… (Wait, you’re saying that you have more Comic Con content?). So, in an effort to get out all of the video material Zennie62 owns, here’s a blog post presenting three of them. First, I happened upon this group of women as I was walking in to the San Diego Convention Center on Sunday...

My issue with what “Geek Culture” has become, today, is that it has little to do with science and space exploration and colonization, and too much do with mindless, selfish, fantasy. It used to be that we had a group of people who were interested in pop-culture’s expression of a tech future paced by space exploration and colonization. Some called us...

Star Trek: Into Darkness is one of the best movies ever made, and for a host of reasons. First of all, it has a really complicated story that is sure to please Star Trek fans and new comers alike. Second, the special effects are just incredible, and they set a new standard for crashing giant starships into cities like San Francisco. Third, the dialog and character...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQjqIcRKaSw Dr Who. Why is the long-running TV Show so popular? At Comic Con and at WonderCon thousands of fans line up for hours to see their favorite characters, and it doesn’t matter who you talk to, almost everyone’s knows of Doctor Who, even if they don’t watch it. Overall, Doctor Who has ran for 34 television...

Star Trek quite literally did go “into darkness” for Earth Hour in London. According to Al Caudullo of 3D Entertainment News, Ars Electronica Futurelab and Ascending Technologies, created a Star Trek logo from LED lights flown into air by mini-copters, or drones over The London Bridge. The Star Trek logo was approximately 308 feet tall, and the mini-copters...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs-zDY9V6QY Malachi Throne passed at 84 late Thursday night, and this really hit me hard because, as you can see, I met him. In fact, I interviewed him twice. Mr. Throne was a regular at WonderCon, where I met him in 2010, and then saw him again in 2011, when the event was in San Francisco. When I went to Anaheim, I totally missed seeing...

On Twitter, San Francisco blogger Violet Blue issued this tweet: Just told Ada courted Marie Claire for feature saying hacker culture is hostile to women. (I saw a MC press @ BSides) Anyone confirm/deny? — violet blue ® (@violetblue) March 12, 2013 So, I felt a response, a take from my unique perspective of being black, male, a nerd or geek, and at 50, was necessary....

Star Trek: Into Darkness has a brand new teaser trailer, out just so Iron Man 3 can’t have all of the fun. This Star Trek trailer reveals an even more fast-paced and action-oriented version of the United Federation Of Planets than before. But there’s just one scene that really does bug the beejesus out of me. And really, it’s the only scene that...

The add for Star Trek: Into Darkness gained the greatest natural buzz of any advertisement from any Super Bowl in history. The commercial was aired right after the Superdome Power Outage Problem surfaced 13:22 into the 3rd Quarter of that epic contest. So here’s a commercial saying “into darkness” as the Superdome itself is into darkness. How morbidly...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XWSA7TQfrk On Thursday, it was announced that J.J. Abrams, the creator of Lost and Cloverfield, and the director of the last two new Star Trek movies, including the upcoming Star Trek: Into Darkness, has been selected to direct Star Wars VII. Wow. He’s bringing together two separate major Sci Fi universes, so I have to ask, who...

This is a great, tongue-in-cheek presentation note sent by the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Take a look at the press release for the Academy’s Scientific and Technical Achievement Awards: BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Actors Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana will host the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards on Saturday,...

Star Trek: Into Darkness is leading the summer blockbuster movie preview race from a content standpoint, as the second trailer for the movie has been released in as many weeks – that and a 10 minute version that’s suddenly flying around the Internet. First, here’s what CNN iReport staffer Henry Hanks calls the “new, new” version of Star Trek:...

A few members of the science-fiction entertainment press were invited to a private screening of nine-minutes of footage from the much-anticipated Star Trek: Into Darkness, the sequel that’s not really a sequel to the 2009 Star Trek. Prior to Wednesday, the first teaser video released December 6th introduced a villain that too many media-types wanted to be Khan,...

Star Trek: Into Darkness has taken the pop-culture World by storm with 16 versions of a teaser trailer called “epic” by some viewers, stunning by others. The video features a somewhat deep voice with a slight English accent owned by the actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the movie’s villain – and everyone’s trying to guess his name. ...

Star Trek: Into Darkness is creeping up on us Trekkers in a J.J. Abrams sort of way. The poster for the next installment in the series of J.J. Abrams movies, posted by various publications starting just about midnight PST, has already caused “Star Trek Into Darkness” to appear as a Twitter Top Trend. What this proves, if anyone needs a demonstration, is...

CNN just had a segment devoted to “Black Nerds” that was just completely annoying. The reason is, Carolyn Costello, the CNN Anchor over the telecast, was trying to push being black and being a nerd as something new, and the guest, some brother with the Tampa Bay Tribune, who’s name I didn’t catch, just went along with it. In his case, and what...

The video of Star Trek fans debating Capt. Kirk v. Capt Picard, and starring Jessica Mann, Zennie62’s new vlogger, is getting rave reviews. The watch word is “cool,” with a little “geek” thrown in. If you’ve not seen it, check it out here: ...

Zennie62.com takes up the question of Capt Kirk v Capt Picard, and introduces new vlogger Jessica Mann in the process. This also marks the first official “person-on-the-street” video produced for Zennie62 on YouTube, where we go around and ask people for their view on a question of the moment. It also marks the first of our SCI-FI DEBATES and Star Trek Debates...

I had the pleasure of meeting the legendary Nichelle Nichols Saturday night at the Arch Angel VIP Star Trek Party in the Windsor Room of the Westin St. Francis Hotel. We could have talked on camera for a good 25 minutes, but in just over 8 minutes, managed to cover a lot of ground in a fun conversation. My first interest was in her view of why Star Trek, well, endures?...

This is how my weird life works. And I’ve made the decision to blog and vlog more about it, as much as news, events, or anything else. It all starts with Thursday night and Jessica Mann. I met Jessica Mann, who’s the new Zennie62 vlogger, at the Oakland Bar Make Westing late Thursday Night, and just after my dinner at Luka’s where I made this video...

When this blogger was first informed about Salon Editor-At-Large and MSNBC Contributor Joan Walsh’ book What’s The Matter With White People, the first thought was “What The F—?” Is Joan playing with the fire of white guilt or what? There are so many directions to go with that title that it made this one’s head spin. Then, I listened...

If you’re wondering who the “Future Guy” is in the popular Dodge Dart car commercial, where he comes back to design the thin-film display for the car (not really), he is none other than Michael Dorn from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Mr. Dorn played the Klingon Security Officer Commander Worf for seven years, all of them spent behind makeup that...

The latest news is that the Mars Rover Curiosity has covered 466 feet of martian land since it landed on The Red Planet almost three weeks ago. And doesn’t that photo look like the terrain on the Star Trek episode Arena? Really, it does – a testament to the detail to which the show’s producers formed an alien terrain they never saw before. But I digress. Here’s...

As my 50th birthday is this Saturday August 4th, I had an idea to assemble the top 50 songs and music that influenced me over my life, from 1962 to 2012. Easy right? Hell no. The process took more time than I thought, not to mention finding the right app to make it happen. That’s where Grooveshark comes in. With Grooveshark, I can pick my songs from their vast...

William Shatner (the original Captain Kirk of Star Trek) returned to Comic Con for the second straight year (Zennie62 trip sponsored by Tout.com), and...

Roger Corman And William Shatner At Comic Con 2012? This is going to be exciting! Comic Con 2012 is almost one week away and as Zennie62 is headed for...

Klout just gave this blogger another reason to dislike its system, and another reason to stick with Kred. The social media ranking system with the inconsistent...

There are some people who are just not nice: in my personal experience, San Francisco blog SFist Editor Brock Keeling is one of those people, because of...

The title’s a bit misleading, as you might think the legendary Don Daglow wrote this blog post. No. What I’m saying is this is a quick blog post before I interview Mr. Daglow at 4 PM, PST. Now two things: first, who’s Don Daglow and second what do I think of GDC so far? OK. Well, to the first, if you’ve ever wondered who made the first Star Trek...

Well, Yvette Prieto was so sold on Air Jordan, she dated Michael Jordan. Now, she’s about to become Mrs. Michael Jordan. The 48-year-old NBA and Chicago Bulls legend proposed to his 32-year-old girlfriend of three years on Christmas Day, according to a widely quoted spokesperson for Jordan. This is Mr. Jordan’s second marriage, after his 2006 divorce from...

The anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams 2009 Star Trek movie reboot will not have the legendary Benicio Del Toro playing ‘Khan’ in a remake of the popular Star Trek The Original Series First Season Episode “Space Seed.” As Trekkers will recall, that genius story aired April 2, 1967 and featured the late Ricardo Montalban playing the charismatic...
