For My Friend, Rod

A few weeks ago, my friend Rod sent me a couple of Counselor Troi action figures that he found in an antique store, because he knows of my overwhelming conviction that Counselor Troi was the most useless continuing character on "Star Trek". I've been trying to think of an appropriate way to say "thank you" (other than the thank you note I left on Facebook), and also he's been a little down lately, so I've been trying to think of a way to cheer him up.

Last night, inspiration struck, as it always eventually does.

Rod, I made you a movie:

I hope you enjoy it, and that it cheers you up.

This is amazing! I giggled more than period Beverly.

Have you heard the bit about how replacing Spock with Troi and Data signaled the cultural shift from modernism to post-modernism: Spock represented the value of cool rationalism while Data was a parody of rationalism found wanting, wanting to feel, and Troi represented the empathic decision making that replaced reason as the latter was rendered ineffective (or at least inefficent) by data overload (pun not intended).

I think the seeds of your loathing might be in there somewhere...I know mine are.
