Mutai Sho-Rin's Activity

  1. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Back . . . And Looking Forward To Hanging Around   

    Welcome to the AARP Army of retired souls.  I recently turned 70 and have been retired (self-unemployed) for about 3 years now.  It is still strange.
  2. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Trekkie Aunt Inspired Love of Star Trek Goes to the Final Frontier   

    Wonderful Subject line and a warm, intriguing story.
  3. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic More Greetings and Felicitations from the UK!   

    Andrew, I moved your greeting to its own topic instead of having it at the end of Lokai's thread.  You deserve your own place to be welcomed.
  4. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Star Trek Beyond Fan Event   

    Is there a fourth movie scheduled and are any of the main cast signed to it?
  5. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic EW on Trek films   

    Like many of the commenters on the article, I came away less impressed.  It was full of unverifiable assumptions by the writer who strained to seem both witty and wise with limited success.  I didn't continue to page 2.
    I do love the fact that you find all these Trek things from a wide array of sources.  All hail Gus, the master internet sleuth.
  6. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic VOYAGER 20th Reunion - VIDEO   

    Having just finished my first (and probably last) 7-season rerun this week, I'll definitely have a look at this soon.  Thanks for posting it.
  7. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Is there a genre of music you cannot stand at all?   

    Having not heard much rap or hip-hop, I can't comment too much on those.  Don't like very much heavy metal, especially the screaming stuff.  Human voices aren't meant to do that.  Also, as much as I enjoy Bluegrass instrumentals, if you add a nasal tenor, I'm outta there.
  8. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic I'm Back, Yo.   

    Every once in a while, I would visit your Patrick Stewart thread just to mourn the fact that you weren't here any longer.  Damn glad to see you return!

    I'm drinking if you're buying.

    Rivalry?  None at all.  Most people here are members of other boards including a fair number of refugees from Trekweb which apparently folded.  You have GOT TO go to the home page and look at some of the photo galleries.  There are over 10,000 pictures from all series and movies and you can easily get lost in there.

    Hi, Smellincoffee, old Mutai is happy to see you here.  Not quite as busy as TrekBBS but a lot of variety and much less baiting, trolling, etc.
  12. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Final New (to You) Episode?   

    I probably haven't seen it yet.  I had pretty much lost interest in Voyager during first run and missed a lot of seasons 6 and 7.  I'm going through it now thanks to Netflix and am partway into S7.  There have been a few eps I remember, but it is mostly new territory.  I vaguely remember the final two episodes but I'm curious to see what is waiting for me until I get there.
  13. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic RIP Prince   

    As we all age, the universe of people who touched our lives diminishes with increasing speed.  The performance of Purple Rain from the movie was visceral and I can feel it in my bones at a moment's notice.  When the favorites in my vintage like Elton John, Billy Joel, Cat Stevens, Jagger start to croak, the feeling of mortality will surely become dark and heavy.  RIP Prince Rogers Nelson.  May your music live on.
  14. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic "Ultimate Voyage" Concert Dates, Cities Announced   

    Yep, I was there with The Lady Sho-Rin and both adult daughters for a 70th birthday treat a month early.  It was a treat to meet Selhat and bride IRL, he actually recognized me in the crowd waiting for the doors to open.  I do have a great family and was so happy to be together with them for this memorable event.  Our younger daughter lives in LA near Pasadena so we get to see her more often but the older one lives near Monterey, CA and works at the Monterey Bay Aquarium so our visits with her are less frequent.
    Selhat perfectly described the scene and the music.  It was a grand experience that we'll reflect upon for a long time to come.
  15. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Queer/LGBTQ Characters?   

    If Disney can put gay guys in Tangled, Why can't Trek do the same.  My one hope is that it isn't an item of focus, just subtly included as the natural thing it is.
