  • One of the Bob's: "Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately."

    Peter Gibbons:    "I wouldn't say I've been missing it, Bob!"

    It's not that I'm lazy; it's that I just don't care.

    "The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing."

    - Oscar Wilde

    "I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."

    -"Credited to Mark Twain in 1907 but no one can definitively say whether he ever said it.  Grant Allen utilized the witticism in an essay in 1894.

    "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society."

    -Mark Twain

    "Let us be thankful for the Computer PBCAKs. But for them the rest of us could not succeed."

    - Mark Twain

  • The Princess Bride is one of the Best movies ever.  I once attended a day of training a long time ago in a galaxy far far away in a weird system called Texas, and they integrated the sales training into the movie. 

    I already loved the movie so the really intelligent way they intertwined the training was brilliant.  I have never been able to find reference to the training or materials since then.

  • Firewalls, We don't need no stinking Firewalls!

  • "SolarWinds Across the Universe!"  On the Front of the T-shirt.

    "Boldly going forward 'cause we can't find reverse."  On the Back.


    SolarWinds could do an entire Marketing campaign or monthly mission around the "Star Trekkin' " featured on the Dr. Demento show and album in the US.

    It would be good for December because the song is similar to the 12 Days of Christmas, in the way that each verse is added to the song as it goes along.

    There could also be a number of shirts designed from each verse.

    Cartoon Video of the song:

    "SolarWinds Across the Universe!  Boldly going forward 'cause we can't find reverse."   On the front of a T-shirt.

    On the backs of the T-Shirts, each verse or combination.:

    "There's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, Jim."

    "It's life, Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, not as we know it; it's life, Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, Captain." 

    "It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim, dead, Jim, dead, Jim""

    "Ah! We come in peace, shoot to kill, shoot to kill, shoot to kill"; 

    "Ye cannot change the laws of physics, laws of physics, laws of physics."

    "Ya cannot change the strength Jim of the engines.  It's worse than that, it's physics, Jim."

    "Bridge to engine room, warp factor 9.  Och, if I give it any more she'll blow, Cap'n!"

    "Star Trekkin' across the universe,

    On the Starship Enterprise under Captain Kirk.

    Star Trekkin' across the universe,

    Boldly going forward 'cause we can't find reverse.

    Lt. Uhura, report.

    There's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, starboard bow;

    there's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, Jim.

    Analysis, Mr. Spock.

    It's life, Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, not as we know it; it's life, Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, Captain.


  • No doubt someone would claim copyright infringement . . .

    After all the hoopla about Axanar going too far and causing Paramount to slap them with a law suit for their planned new crowd-source-funded ($1M!!) production of Trek, it's become apparent that Trek fans had been given some leeway by Paramount to do fannish things to celebrate Star Trek, but once money was going to be made / spent, it crossed the line.

  • I thought abut that about halfway through doing this.  Nothing wrong with reaching an agreement with the IP holder's whoever they would be the songwriters?  Paramount?  It's on Dr. Demento's 20th Anniversary album which I assume he, the music writers and the initial person that wrote the lyrics were paid royalties.

  • Open World RPG ‘like’ Star Wars Game Shows Up on Kickstarter

    Hasn't the new Star Wars movie already broken all box office records?

    Isn't it a hotter/better IP than Star Treak?

    Just wondering.

    Take care,
