I decided to do a little photo-feature on some of the foods that I sampled yesterday from my Star Wars Cookbook (and other galactic recipes). They were so tasty that even Jabba would be jealous! Now excuse me while I pop out to Dagobah and do some push-ups with a Yoda backpack to burn off those calories…
You may or may not know, but the incredibly talented Aurelio Voltaire has recently come out with his latest album: Bi-Trektual. Until recently, I was in the grouping of people who “did not know” that this highly entertaining album was even in the works. For any of you who are unfamiliar with Voltaire’s work but are familiar with the Burlesque show that we recently put on, my solo number was to Voltaire’s “When You’re Evil,” a dark cabaret style piece with almost a gypsy feel at times. Back to the geek side though, his newest album Bi-Trektual is a hilarious compilation of songs mainly comparing and combining Star Wars and Star Trek, but also include other fun little references to other sci-fi series and movies as well.
As usual, the whole album is a fantastic mix of quality music, raunchy and infectious lyrics, and also this time incorporates any geek’s wet dream of being able to connect with everything Trek and Wars related. It has so many moments of “OMG-SO-TRUE!” shout outs for sci-fi fans that I stopped counting after the second track. It combined these so well, in fact, that it caused my non-Trekkie fiance, Joe, to crack a smile and even stifle a snort on more than one occasion when I subjected him to the first listen of the album.
I decided to download the digital copy because I couldn’t stand to wait for the physical copy to come in the mail, but would highly recommend purchasing this album if you haven’t already. The physical CD is already on my Xmas list even though I own the digital copy, if for nothing else than the fantastic album artwork. If you’re still not convinced, take a look at the track list below and see if you still have any reservations!
