Merry Christmas, you covetous, old sinners! Watching and listening to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time. So I wanted to add to the plethora of adaptations and read the (condensed) story and record it for your enjoyment (I hope). I released these episodes (one for each stave) over the course of four nights during the week of Christmas 2020 (at 1 am, the arrival time of the spirits). I have collected each stave below, my gift to you.
Stardate 2020.342. Star Trek: The Motion Picture was released on December 7, 1979 — 41 years ago — and it’s time to celebrate the first Star Trek film! Pop in your Director’s Cut DVD and follow along as I provide my own fan commentary about one of my favorite Star Trek films.
