What Do You Get When You Cross The Mild Geekery Of Star Trek Appreciation With The Mild Geekery Of Knowing Way Too Much About Vintage Modern Dinnerware? Status: OMG, I'm Such A Big Nerd.
So when I'm posting here on the ol' blog I've almost always got something playing on Netflix because we don't do cable and I'm up at stupid o'clock and there's nothing on broadcast TV. Not only is Netflix great because you can watch great televion (like Doc Martin, Top Gear and Sherlock...I guess I got a thing for the BBC) and movies (anybody else watch Sleepwalk With Me yet?) but you can back up and freeze frame when you see something (relatively speaking) cool. So what do the two pictures above have in common? Follow me through the break!

Am I the biggest cross pollinated nerd ever for seeing the Russel Wright Steubenville American Modern
dinnerware in Chartreuse here? I see lugged coupe bowls, a dinner plate and a vegetable bowl in this
photo or screen capture from Season 1 Episode 7: Ex Post Facto. Am I the only geek here who points
out every obscure piece of vintage modern furniture he or she sees on TV, in movies, TV shows or
commercials? Has anybody else seen the Beautiful Heywood Wakefield "Dogbone" chairs and dining
set in the latest McDonald's commercial? There was another for one of the newest smart phones today
that had just a hint of a Bertoia side chair in it. I called it out...loudly. Such a dork am I!
