That a lot of the same folks who bent over backwards to say it was wrong to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few violent individuals are the very same folks who are now more than happy to say all Muslims must be bad because of the actions of a few violent individuals. It's the inconsistency of thought that drives me...

Does anyone still refer to breasts as "boudacious ta-tas" or is that only something that was a thing in the 80s?

Finally (after tens of people telling me I would dig it) I am getting around to reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It's a stellar read so far. Definitely caters to geek culture, but not in an annoying fashion. I really need to start writing again, it's been too damn long. I am all the time inspired to write when I read...

Just got from the wonderful folks at Amazon the book "John Hughes A Life In Film". It's really put together nicely. If I am being honest his movies were tremendously influential to me (and most people born around 1972). I hope the young kids of today are aware of his work and watch his films as ravenously as I did "back in the day".

Such sadness that one of my favorite actors died today, though he lived a long and full 83 years. Star Trek helped this lonely 16 year old out on a nightly basis back in the latter part of the 80s (Channel 11 in New York ran Star Trek at 12:00 midnight), and for that I will be forever grateful.

I believe, things that stir the imagination, give your heart hope. Star Trek was one of the few things I could watch on FREE TV that stirred the imagination. I wan't to thank Mr. Spock and Crew for the voyages in my mind! Much Love....RIP!
