San Francisco: Affordable housing


Go home, SFO, you are drunk. Wait…you can’t even afford a home to go to!

Thank goodness that LA/OC isn’t nearly this bad. Yet.

At least there was a sign to tell me where to go

Star Trek Kirk vs. Gorn Minimates

Star Trek Kirk vs. Gorn

A while back, Barbie and I took a trip out to Vasquez Rocks County Park to do a little hiking at soak up some Hollywood history. The 932-acre park north of Los Angeles has played the backdrop to dozens of films and television shows, possibly the most famous of which was the original Star Trek episode “Arena” which featured Captain Kirk pitted against a rubber lizard suit Gorn in a fight to the death on a desert planet.

To pay homage to such a significant piece of popular culture, we set up a photo shoot with my Star Trek Kirk vs. Gorn Minimates figures in front of the iconic “big rocks” that are instantly recognisable to Trekkers and Trekkies alike.

We played around with a few different poses before settling on the “flying kick” that the good captain made famous. Unfortunately, the limitations in the Minimates figures’ articulation made the double-fisted hammer punch pose impossible.
