Lens flares?

How does that old song go?

“Blinded by the light…..”

…I’ll level with you, bro: YOU SUCKED!


Now THAT was a good “KHANNNN!!!!” scream ;-)



My eyes! The goggles do nothing!

Human Lens Flare, meet Mr. Phaser.

I hope Bob cuts back on that stuff. It makes me want to change my contact lenses.

My kid is named Jean-Luc :) Which seemed perfect for obvious ‘trek’ reason and he is French, so it does stand out for the non-trek people… He’s 4 and already think he’s the captain anyway and does the ‘engage’ hand sign when the car starts to move…

Both were good videos…LOL

Is it possible that we two, Khan and Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, have grown so old and hackneyed that we have outlived our usefulness?

love the videos so funny

“I’m in every scene.”

He sure is.

Funny stuff!!

JJ never met a lens flare he didn’t like.

That was pretty good.

I fully enjoyed the concept, story arc and development of the main character.

nice! lol.
