Star Trek in Cinerama Widescreen

Forty eight years ago this week Star Trek debuted its first episode on NBC. The show, like all other shows at the time, was broadcast in the old style 4x3 aspect ratio. Using HD screen caps from my friends at Trekcore.com, I created this project of what the show would have looked like in Cinerama widescreen. As a kid the show always felt bigger and more epic than it appears to me as an adult. I was able to create these shots by waiting for the camera to pan and then I stitched the separate shots together. The result is pretty epic. It reminds me of the classic science fiction movies of the 50’s and 60’s. Suddenly the show has a “Forbidden Planet” vibe. Other shots remind me of how director Robert Wise would use a camera technique to keep the foreground and background elements in focus. (x)

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

GIANT SHRIMP FOUND OFF THE COAST OF FLORIDA

An enormous shrimp that measured 18 inches was found off the coast of Florida. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, it is likely to be a mantis shrimp. It’s hammer like claw can lash out at speeds of 50 miles an hour.  It is designed to break through the shells of unsuspecting prey. It was caught by fisherman Steve Bargeron, who also noted the powerful strike of its tail which he wisely steered well clear of.
