…Watched the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan…
I’m rather surprised a) that this was on television in the middle of the week and b) that I was allowed to watch it. Perhaps I’m misremembering and I watched it somewhere else; my diary is typically unclear on this point. I also fail to record what I thought of the film.
It was the first feature-length dose of Trek to which I’d ever subject myself. I was sufficiently entertained, or perhaps bemused, to go on to buy a primitive audio adaptation of the film. It comprised a wafer-thin novelisation and a cassette, the former intended to be read along with the latter.
As with all of these kinds of juvenile talking books, there was a sound on the tape to tell stupid people when to turn over to the next page. I think it was either the beep-crackle of a communicator or the tinkly-whoosh of a transporter.
I now realise that the publishers of this audio monstrosity missed a trick by not using this earthy ejaculation for the page-turning sound instead.
