Came to Believe

Have you ever had one of those moments where you found yourself questing the existence of God or a higher power? Take January 27th 1991 for example, on that very day I was 99.9 percent positive that god did not exist. I was sitting in Kim Jong Ramone's living room as I watched Scott Norwood's field goal attempt go wide right. Still, to this day I can't watch the replay.

From that moment on up until two days ago there was never a question in my mind, god simply didn't exist. Nothing catastrophic happened in my life on Tuesday that opened my eyes and my heart to God. It's real simple, I was reading the comments on Steve Novak's blog on Tuesday and he informed me that Star Trek the animated series was being released on DVD at the end of this month. This month. Next week!

You have no idea how long I have waited for this moment! 22 episodes of Star Trek that I don't remember except for maybe one or two. After reading that comment on Novak's blog I felt a calm come over me that I've never known. For the first time in my life I was completely at peace with myself and the universe. As a matter of fact I almost came on myself.

Now that I'm sure there is a god, I don't have to waste any more time pondering that question. I've got bigger issues. Do I run out and buy Star Trek the Animated series on DVD Tuesday, or do I completely restructure my Christmas list that was completed in July, throwing my entire life in to a tail spin? I have no idea what the fuck I'm going to do. Help!

I could pray to God I suppose and ask him for guidance, but I don't want to burden him right now. He's got enough to do with Star Trek 11 coming out in 2008 and all. He's got to pull off the impossible, have someone other than William Shatner play the part of Captain Kirk... Nope, I'm not going to bother God right now.

This is way to much to think about. It's a good thing that TV Land is going to be playing a ton of Star Trek episodes this weekend. It will give me some time to clear my head and gain some perspective. Thank God for TV Land.

Okay, is it just too early in the morning, or do Kirk & Spock look a LOT like the "ambiguously gay duo" from the shorts on SNL? I'm just saying...

Nonny said...

Did you ever think that perhaps Steve Novak IS God? I have that feeling on occasion :)

I'm very happy for your good fortune. I was like that not long ago when the original theatrical releases of the first SW trilogy came out.

what do you think god likes more, star trek or pro sports?

captain corky said...

I would have to go with pro sports atheist. Have you ever seen the 1996 Chicago Bulls championship video? I think it's called the unstopabulls, and it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there's a god.

God, I hate the Bulls.

Oh, and the theatrical release of the original Star Wars trilogy was ruined by the persistent re-editing and uber-crapola digital effects inserted by the unhinged and power-mad neck wattle of George Lucas.

Good day, sir.

I said, good day!

How are you guys even still able to watch the original trilogy? The prequel trilogy is so far superior in every way. A marvelous work of art!

Funny January 27th 1991 was the day God answered my prayer.

I LOVED the original as a kid, Cap'n. Seriously. I was just kidding about the ambiguously gay thing.

Okay, no I wasn't. They really do. Sorry, buddy, the box cover just makes me giggle.

captain corky said...

I suppose I can forgive you for your sacrilege K, and we all know that the original is the best.

Just seeing the box art makes my penis start to drip!!

Ms. Tuesday said...

You gotta admit that they DO resemble the Ambiguously Gay Duo in that PARTICULAR shot... funny.

Trekies...(shakes head)

You guys are SO COOL!

I think I saw maybe three episodes of this in re-runs in the ealry 80's. The vhs tapes were too expensive back in the 90's, but I may break down and buy this eventually.
