starbuck81: everdeer: seeingbeyondfear: apprenticemockingbird: Remember all those promo pics...





Remember all those promo pics that made it look like Mulder and Scully were going to the prom?

I’m coming up short on THE prom promo pics, but I’ve always felt they were part of a larger series, including (but not limited to):

fbi engagement photos


fbi pregnancy announcement


fbi apocalypse survivors?


and, last but not least, fbi indie album cover.


fbi homecoming


fbi slavic 80s popstars


fbi weird theater kids


fbi young adult novel


fbi Christmas card


I think this is one of the aforementioned FBI prom photos

but let’s not forget the FBI Sears portrait

FBI du Soleil

FBI 1980′s cigarette ad

FBI one hit wonder 90′s pop duo

I’ve heard the theory that Kirk’s logs just get circulated round headquarters for lulz before being dumped in the circular file as obvious fabrications by someone bored with a frontier posting.

“Hey, have you seen this one? He says he fought Apollo.”

“What, the old earth probe?”

“Try the old earth GOD!”

“Hilarious! Classic Kirk! That’s better than the time when he was transported to an evil dimenison.”

The reason why in The Naked Now it was Riker who remembered that the previous polywater infection had happened is that he’s the sort of person who would read The Hilarious Adventures of Captain Kirk for fun.

I especially like this idea because of the implication that all the other captains in Starfleet are reporting perfectly ordinary experiences like visiting a space station, dropping off supplies at a colony, bit of a stand-off with some Klingons in disputed space but got out of it unscathed - and then there’s Kirk all, “sorry guys we’ve been off course this week because my first officer seriously needed to get laid (LIKE YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY NECK STILL HURTS)” and “let me tell you about the Chicago Gangster planet” and “WHIPPED AND THROWN IN JAIL BY SPACE NAZIS.”

I actually really like the above explanation

I thought this was already canon

The only problem with this idea is it cuts into my idea that one of the design requirements for the Galaxy class was to be able to act as a generation ship in the event that it gets flung somewhere and will take several lifetimes to trek back to Federation space, because seriously have you seen how often that happens to our ships?

#079 Old Spice Presents: Sponsored Content Cops


PREMISE: Fighting crime doesn’t come easy; it takes sweat, blood, and teamwork–the same kind of dedication that goes into bringing you a great meal at your local TGI Friday’s Casual Dining Restaurant & Bar. When a small town faces deep budget cuts, they turn to sponsors to keep their police department running. The plan is a runaway success and their sponsored content policing leads them to be the most effective police force in the country. The show was the brainchild of two ad executives from the Merkel and Mahoney Creative Agency who refused to let their dream of working in an actual creative field die. It was primarily a vehicle for product placement.

CHARACTERS: Police Chief Nike Basketball is initially resistant to the sponsored content plan, especially when the Miranda rights become twice as long with the addition of a lengthy ad for Toyota Tacomas (S01.E14 – “Right To Remain Luxurious and Safe in Your Driving Experience”). But he quickly comes around when his daughter, Crystal Pepsi, reminds him of his love for forward-thinking, narrative-based, experiential storytelling in social media marketing. It’s a consuming passion that has gotten him into trouble more than once.
        Behr Semi-Gloss Paint is a tough-as-nails beat cop, the best that the West Orange Old Spice PD has. She’s restless and haunted, spending long nights driving her Fruit Roll-Ups Flavor Cruiser around town, searching for a Coke bottle with the name of her father’s murderer on it.

NOTABLE EPISODE: Semi-Gloss and Basketball must recover the key to a Chase bank safe deposit box that contains an eccentric billionaire’s collection of rare Swarovski UX designs. Along the way they explain what UX design is (S01.E04 – “Rolls Royce Presents: Point and Click and Die”).

CATCHPHRASE: “Which prison experience do you prefer?”

TRIVIA: For the first two seasons, the show’s writers were able to convince themselves that the show was a commentary on privatization. The show was cancelled when they realized they were total fucking sellouts, and they all quit en masse.

This tumblr just got too real.

Did I say something wrong? I just wanted to explain why the dinosaurs don't look realistic in Jurasic world. I'm sorry if I somehow offended you, it wasn't my intent!

I’ve just, y’know, seen the movie, so you don’t have to explain the movie to me!  I’m also not sure why that explanation would satisfy anyone who has an issue with Jurassic Park and how its weird lizard things influence popular culture’s perception of dinosaurs.  I mean, if you want velociraptors to start having feathers when they show up in places, your primary concern is probably not whether the Jurassic Park franchise paid lip service to preserving the integrity of its own fictional science.

I am constantly amazed and spooked at how closely dinosaur history resembles our own.

<SpaceHobo> okay so in the past week I learned that 30 Rock and 3rd Rock
            are two different shows, and that Kid Rock is not that guy
            from Kid&Play
<SpaceHobo> It seems like if the word "Rock" is involved, I manage to
            remain subconsciously willfully ignorant.
<emad> yeah, it explains why your tour of alcatraz sucked
