Trek's Abrams Eyes Damon?

The Insider, the syndicated gossip TV series, reported a rumor that Matt Damon is being eyed to play a young Capt. James T. Kirk in J.J. Abrams' proposed 11th Star Trek movie.

Citing an anonymous source, the show reported that Abrams (Mission: Impossible III) is so interested in Damon (The Bourne Identity) that he's sought support from the original Kirk, William Shatner. "Shatner gave his blessing," the source reportedly told the show. "J.J. got his approval."

Rumors are circulating that Abrams' Trek movie will be a prequel to the original series, centering on Kirk and Spock's early days at Starfleet. "J.J. wants Damon as Capt. Kirk," the source said. "He really loves the idea."

For their part, Abrams and his Trek producing partner Bryan Burk (who is also an executive producer on Abram's hit ABC series Lost) have declined to comment on speculation about the movie's storyline, saying only that any reports about its narrative have been released prematurely.

Father's Day

I got a new BBQ pit for Father's Day with a cover. I had a smaller one for years but it died of rust. This one is nice and I can't wait to try it out.

My own father passed away 5 years ago so...

Target had the electric guitar on sale this past week and I fantasized about getting it. I sat in a chair while my oldest had me close me eyes while he slid the box along the floor to me, I thought "They got me the guitar!" but this is nice too and we'll all enjoy the food I cook up.

Korn singer says more headbanging could have killed him

This guy had the same disease my youngest son had three years ago. It is a very scary and serious disease until it gets righted, any little bump could potentially kill you.

Service lets people rip videos from YouTube, other sites

A pair of services run by one person in Australia are giving people new ways to access and use video content from sites like YouTube and Google Video, and copyright holders may well find themselves up in arms about it.

Peekvid - watch videos online

Keepvid - Download videos DIRECT from most video sites

If the Blogger button is working again, maybe I'm back to blogging stuff I find! :-) Shut up dude, nobody cares.

Why doesn't???

Why doesn't the Blogger button on the Google toolbar work anymore?!

I blogged everything using that button. And now, as you can see, I never blog anymore because it doesn't work.

Is there a fix for this? Please help.


Whoa whoa whoa, the above post was just made using the button, is it working again? I certainly hope so.
