Feeling Good

     Finally my neurologist has got me on a combination of drugs that is doing a stellar job of controlling my nerve pain.  I can sleep and I can function again!  I am now on Lyrica and Amitriptyline.  The combination does sedate me a small bit but that is minor compared to what I felt like when I couldn’t sleep because of the pain.

Star Trek Beyond

     Went and saw Star Trek Beyond last night.  I was disappointed.  It had way too much CGI and way to little story line and plot.  The good thing was that we went to the Tuesday $6 special so didn’t pay too much to see it.  The casting wasn’t bad, the people that played Kirk and Spock didn’t look like the originals but did sound much like them.  I did not see the movie in 3D and I suspect that is what much of the computer graphics were aimed at, but in my humble opinion, even a 3D sci-fi movie needs story line and plot.  Spock also displayed more emotions than a Vulcan should even if it were for the sake of some marginal one-liners.
