I was born in 1967, which means that my generation was the first to enjoy the original Star Trek series on syndication, not in prime time. I was a big fan, even before Star Wars made Sci-Fi even cooler. In fact, when I was in second grade we always played pretend Star Trek on the playground (I always played the alien who got killed by Captain Kirk).
Today I got to relive those memories when I created this video. On my phone. With no cables. And distributed to the world.
I always dreamed of what it would be like to really live in the Star Trek universe. If you had told me when I was eight years old that I could not only create that amazing video effect on my own without any assistance, I would not have believed you. And then when you told me that it was created on a phone? Well, that would have really blown my mind.
Video created with Action Movie FX app. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in theaters on May 17.
Another game, another hit. And this time it was off probably the best pitcher in the league. Great hit from Quinn today. Clearly, the financial incentives need to be modified, so we’re dropping Quinn’s hit incentive down to $5 per hit.
Quinn got his first hit of the season, and here’s the clip from the at-bat. Quinn also pitched part of an inning. He did better at pitching than he did last season, striking out one batter and walking a couple. He made a good play to pick off a runner in an attempted run-down.
Quinn is starting another year of Niles-Centerville Little League. This year he is playing for the Minor-A Athletics. The opening ceremonies for the season were up this morning bright and early. Quinn’s game wasn’t scheduled until 4 pm but started closer to 5 pm and ultimately was called after three innings. Quinn got one and a half at bats, since he had a sacrifice hit in the 2nd inning and then was batting when the 5th run of the inning scored in the 3rd inning on a wild pitch.
