The reviews are coming in for JJ Drek 2: Into Crapness. Mr. Beaks at Ain't It Cool News, and Silas Lesnick at Coming Soon.Net reveal the ugly truth about how the Jar Jar Abrams brain trust of Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci (a mentally disturbed conspiracy theorist and "truther") and Damon Lindelof, the guy who screwed up the ending to Lost and inflicted Prometheus upon us, all gathered together in their dark lair, and set out to rape Gene Roddenberry's legacy. For full spoilers on this atrocity of a "movie" made for suckers willing to be mulct and mouth breathers who like explosions and illogic all on display in glittering 3D read a detailed synopsis here. The fact that this film may make any money at all only speaks to the decay of society, and the failure of the culture to uphold any standards of aesthetics. Don't waste your hard earned money on this crap, don't surrender your money to pick pockets and thieves who are parasites on the Roddenberry legacy. Little JJ has made the moral equivalent of a snuff film. Theatre goers should shun and actively protest this so called "movie" made by mental midgets and deranged Hollywood monsters. On the Franklin Scale of 1-10, 10 being best, Star Drek: Into Crapness gets a Negative -17.

You all thought Ambrosia was all that was served at Joe’s Bar aboard the Galactica. But that’s not the case. While on a top-secret mission, Lee Adama stumbled across a martini type drink that sparkled when held up to the light. He brought his old friend Joe a few cases of the drink onto the Battlestar to help his friend vary the selections at Lee’s favorite bar. We cannot tell you exactly where these libations came from, but it was Joe’s idea to mix them in these proportions over ice. The folks aboard the Battlestar flocked to the bar until the stockpile was gone. The taste and the sparkles in the glass mesmerized the crew, and became quite the hit. For at least an evening, they paid the Cylon no mind.
I am now able to share this recipe with you, and it can be duplicated very closely with spirits found on Earth.
Take a martini or cocktail glass and either chill it in the freezer for 15 minutes or fill the glass with ice and water as you make the drink.
In a tumbler full of ice pour:
2 ½ oz of vanilla flavored vodka
1oz Goldschlager schnapps
Shake vigorously till mixture is icy.
Pour into a chilled glass and enjoy.
Sit back and watch the sparkles before you drink. Joe thought the sparkles were a little of the view out his window of the ship captured in a glass.
As you sip ponder what you would do about the Cylon.
