Musicians In Movies Triple

A trio of videos showing off musicians who have made the leap from the music industry to the film one. Of course, there are hundreds (probably more) of examples of this sort of thing occurring as the two industries are fairly incestuous but I’ve decided to select just three because that’s what I tend to do when sharing videos.

Star Trek Endings

Today I watched the final ever episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, a mere fifteen years after it aired. The reason for the slight delay is one of bad luck and odd repeat-showing practices by the people in charge of such things. I never saw the final series of DS9 when it was first shown and every time I’ve seen the series being repeated, for some reason, the last season was never part of the cycle.
