Music and Star Trek

Voice Lesson #4: Tonight, for some reason, it finally clicked--not my voice, but my degree of dedication. Tonight, I stopped regarding the voice lessons as simply a pleasurable experience. Tonight, I began to really regard the lessons as tools I am using to build and mold my voice.

I'm not sure what precipitated the change. Maybe it was the exercises I was doing, or maybe it was my teacher's instructions to stop listening to what I am singing and pay more attention to my body as I sing. I think the 'paying attention to what my body is doing' advice is what woke me up from the sleep of ignorance, where I wasn't really, concentrating, before.

Suddenly, now, everything is different in my mind. Now, I am dedicated. Now, I have a purpose. That purpose isn't to sing the music of Hildegard of Bingen; that purpose is merely to sing well, whatever I might perform.

It is truly an enlightening feeling.

Star Trek: I hear from the Ain't It Cool? site that there are new rumors about the upcoming Trek movie. The rumor now is that they want to do a re-envisioning of Classic Trek with new actors and a starship whose technology is updated from what was available in the sixties. Matt Dillon is supposedly interested in playing Kirk.

If they actually go through with this, I am more concerned with who will play Spock. I really cannot imagine many actors with the depth and the look. The only two who come to mind are Ralph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving. I'm sure there are others, but I'm not enough familiar with a lot of actors to be able to make more choices.

Just...not Brad Pitt, please--though I have to admit that Angelina Jolie would make a kick-ass Romulan Commander! (g)

Current Mood: contemplativecontemplative

I would love Angelina Jolie as a Romulan Commander -- she would be awesome.

She would certainly know how to turn on the steam! (g) *pities Mr. Spock*


This is the first I've heard about a new/old Trek movie, and I think they should just leave it alone.

With regards to your voice lessons, yay! I'm glad you're getting something meaningful out of your lessons.

Mananeh--*points* I LOVE the possum!!!! :D

Yep, one of Shatner's better roles! Hehe!

I agree with just leaving well enough alone. Why fix something that isn't broken?

And you're spot on with the 'not fixing'. By all means, another spin-off. But don't re-make anything.
We didn't need another Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A New World (or whatever that was called) flopped because we already had Pocahontas. Don't even get me started on The Last Flight of the Phoenix or The Poseidon Adventure. We don't need a re-make or a re-telling or a re-exploration of those characters and that time. They tried going earlier with Enterprise, and that didn't entirely do amazingly, did it? ST has always been about looking forwards, not back. At some point they've got to realise the cow they're trying to milk is actually a horse and it's (of not quite dead) certainly on its last legs and can't stand up to a bad film.

I actually liked Enterprise a lot, but they screwed it up with that stupid temporal war thing and by not properly researching established Trek future history. You can't introduce a whole new quintuplet of races like the Zindi when there is no backstory at all for them in the Trek history that we already know.

I don't mind the creation of the Denobulans, because I can imagine that not all of the races who joined the early Federation were mentioned in Classic Trek, but the Zindi, who almost caused a war, should not have been used. That was getting too far away from what had already been established.

It's a crying shame that, just as the series was getting to be really good and dealing with some of the canon Trek history, it got canceled. :(
