Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water

michael posted more than 10 years ago | from the accurate-enough dept.

Sci-Fi 332

darthcamaro writes "Earthlings Ugly Bags of Mostly Water is the name of a new documentary film - starring Worf (aka Michael Dorn)about Klingon language and culture. They've got a weird website too. 'Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water' captures the lives, passions and quirks of the members of the Klingon Language Institute during their annual qep'a' (conference). The film's producers issued a press release about it today with some interesting quotes... 'The perspective of Michael Dorn, the world's most recognized Klingon, provides both serious and comedic elements to the project,' said Earthlings Director Alexandre Philippe. 'This is a man who embodies all the elements of a Klingon warrior: honor, respect, ferocity. For years, Klingon fans have looked to the Worf character for their education in Klingon culture.' Quaplah! /. !!"

Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water
Statement: This documentary needed to be made. I still don't understand how the meatbags stand living. The sloshing sounds would drive me insane.
Aside: Michael Dorn is not bad for a meatbag, though clearly a droid would make a superior host .
Resigned: *sigh* If only my assassination protocol were still functional.
Appeasement: Maybe they will make a sequel.

SubliminalLove (646840) | more than 10 years ago | (#9022283)

On the contrary, it's people who take sci-fi as more than mere entertainment who give the genre it's amazing power. Consider those dreamers, many obsessed in their adolescence with worlds beyond any possibility, who thirty years later orchestrated the landing of a human being on the surface of the Moon. True fans of science fiction, who see the futures portrayed therein as possibilities waiting to be unlocked rather than foolhardy dreams, are our pilgrims into the future. As odd as they might seem, they are an incredibly valuable portion of our species.

How so? Such dedication is shown to other stories in our culture (ex: Tolkien, Star Wars, Steven King, Shakespeare, etc).

I have to disagree, very few people take either written or visual media as seriously as "Trekkies" do. Such feverish obsession reminds me of when I was a child and used to watch Ghostbusters and Superman repeatedly. Eventually I grew up.

Don't get me wrong, I like sci-fi, I like Star Trek (TOS and TNG anyway) but some people just take it all to far.

As opposed to Stovokor, the Klingon metal band from Portland. No web site yet. Featured in the upcoming Trekkies 2 (straight to dvd on August 31st). Along with other geeky nerdy punk rock Star Trek bands like:

No Kill I
No Kill I: The Next Generation
No Kill I: Deep Space 9

Re:Ahead geek factor 6 (4, Insightful)

JabberWokky (19442) | more than 10 years ago | (#9022352)

I would say that the top five or ten most recognized detectives are all fictional (starting out with Sherlock Holmes). Telly Savalis's Kojack and Peter Falk's Columbo are up there on the list.

Recognition of an actor as a famous or 'most recognized' "something" is not confusing the fact that they are actors. It's merely shortcutting the phrase "{character}, as portrayed by {actor}, is the most recognized {type of character}. When people think of {actor}, they think of {type of character}, and if you think of a {type of character}, you think of {character} as portrayed by {actor}."

If you think of "Vampire Slayer", you are likely thinking of one of five actors who portrayed them. Probably one of two characters (Van Helsing or Buffy).

It doesn't mean any of it is real... but "recognized" is a slippery term when dealing with fiction.

Atario (673917) | more than 10 years ago | (#9022407)

For years, Klingon fans have looked to the Worf character for their education in Klingon culture.
The Worf character was supposed to be a bit of a stiff, over-serious, stick-in-the-mud, not a guide to Klingon culture -- result of straddling two cultures when growing up. All the other Klingons are more raucous, lusty hellions.

That said, I'd say the geek factor with this is at least a 9.

anagama (611277) | more than 10 years ago | (#9022386)

  • What percentage of water are Klingons?

Typically, more than 99% of water is water, the remaining 1% or less being minerals, salts, or pollutants (note - this is a made up statstic, no researchers were disturbed in the making up of this number). However, I have heard of no reports of water being comprised of Kilngons, so it is probably safe to say that 0% of water is made up of Klingons.

Perhaps you were more interested in knowing what percentage of the Klingon body is comprised of water. The answer to that question is, sadly, more difficult to obtain.

Answer: NaN (4, Funny)

This film captures the life, passion and quirks of the Klingon Language Institute, an entity structured to support and facilitate the only "Constructed Language" to emerge out of popular culture.


I thought Tolkien Elvish languages (Sindarin and the like) would count as well, considering Tolkien spent a considerable amount of time creating those languages. Although, I suppose, "popular culture" is a rather subjective term.

I'm glad to see such projects like this get off the ground, to show the public that those who study the Klingon race as revealed in Star Trek AREN'T the stereotype of a bunch of fat losers with too much time on their hands.

I am not sure I really appreciate the levity they show though. Although it is useful to make the odd "wacky quip", it is important to stress that the study of the Klingon language and literature is a serious, difficult subject. We true scholars tend to look down on those who learn a few words to throw around at conventions, without appreciating the subtlety and beauty of the Klingon language.

As we say.."Dr'ad Muhr. Drahd Mhay." (DRUH-AHD MOO-UHR. DRUH-AHD MEEY), which means, roughly, "To each warrior, his own Keldar Beast." The significance of which could be usefully translated to "To each his own", though that does not capture the full spirit of the original Klingon. Alas, few modern languages do!

I for one will not stand for such speciesist slurrs to be posted online or otherwise.

Ugly bag of mostly water indeed.
Atleast I don't look like someone squated over my head and took a crap on my forehead.

And besides, if Klingons are so great, why doesn't speaking their language get you laid?!?!?
You try saying "ghu neH Ha' lItHa'?" to some chick and see what happens.

I've been a trekkie for so long, I own the entire of TNG on video, and most of the original series. I am soooo excited about this!
In unrelated news, I am 34 years old and live with my parents. I am also a virgin.

I think that humans are a bit more than dirty bags of water. These guys need to come down to reality.
