Both the source and the credit to the creator’s page are still there, I didn’t remove them. I rearranged them and removed the indentations. There’s a difference, which is a lot more than can be said for a significant amount of the blogs on this site. Besides, you can’t actually delete the source without creating an entirely new post. And you know what? That post has almost 20,000 notes on it. My single reblog - which is still accurately credited and linked - isn’t exactly attention worthy. Except to anonymous trolls such as yourself, apparently.

Star Trek 1x18 - “Arena" - Stardate: 3045.6
I dozed off early on while I was first watching this episode, and this was the exact moment I woke back up to. When I saw the glitter in this dude’s eyes, I knew I had missed something vitally important. I promptly skipped back to where I last remembered and gave it my fullest attention. It was pretty solid episode featuring the first appearance of the Gorn, an enemy alien species that never became as prominent in the Star Trek canon as the Romulans or the Klingons. This is unfortunate because they look incredible.

Against Me! - New Wave
Many fans of Reinventing Axl Rose have disowned Against Me! as sellouts, which I think is a shame. If they sold out, at least they made it work for them instead of the other way around. New Wave - their first for a major label - is my favorite of their albums (although their newest one may have very well changed that). One of my favorite things about Against Me! is that they don’t bother with filler. In the same way that Laura Jane Grace doesn’t mince her words, they keep their records short and to the point. It’s a refreshing throw back to the days when records were limited to what could fit onto an LP. New Wave is no different. They make the sleeker production style (as compared to their earlier efforts) work for their sound without losing their teeth. Lyrically, this album is also close to my heart. ‘Borne on the FM Airwaves of the Heart” is one of the most honest testaments of infatuation mistaken for first love I have ever heard, and it really helped me find closure for my own experience with that. “Ocean” turned out to be a foreshadowing for Grace’s coming out as transgender. And yeah, true fans aren’t supposed to like the hit singles (or some archaic bullshit logic like that) but “Thrash Unreal” is just a great fucking rock song. Standouts aside this is a solid collection of tracks from start to finish.
Star Trek 1x17 - “The Squire of Gothos" - Stardate: 2124.5
For anyone who has seen the Futurama episode “Where No Fan Has Gone Before,” this is the episode it is largely based on. At least the plot twist part of it. I am told it also is loaded with tons of Star Trek references that I probably missed. Overall, it’s one of the show’s sillier and more whimsical stories. It did get me looking forward to re-watching “Where No Fan Has Gone Before” when this is all done.
