A great guy, whose humor and friendship will be sorely missed. We had many an adventure back in the day. We stayed in touch over the years.

As I was just saying to another friend yesterday, Jim was the kind of friend that you may not talk to every day, we were separated by great distance. But when we talked, we picked up right where we left off, just like family. I’m really not able to say more right now, I feel like someone punched me in the gut.

Friends are awesome

Thanks to Rosie and Blaze for lending a helping hand today when I needed it. Good friends are better than gold, cherish them.

@alyankovic was told by the Lady Gaga camp that he couldn’t put his “Born This Way” parody on his new album. It’s shame, because it’s quite good. The whole story in Al’s words. Here’s to Al for being respectful enough to ask. I just wonder if it was Gaga or her lawyers that actually said no? I wonder also if some “superstars” take themselves a bit too seriously.

Not the first, but…

I was watching Star Trek (The Original Series) last night. It was the episode “The Enemy Within”. You know, the episode where there is a transporter accident and Kirk (and a poorly costumed alien dog) are split into two separate versions of themselves. One is weepy, weak, and uncertain of himself. The other is the “Evil Twin”. It truly is Shatner overacting at his finest, see the scene where “Evil Kirk” proclaims “I’M CAPTAIN KIRK! It’s Shatner gold.

As I was watching the show I noticed something that raised a question for me, and let me say I did a quick Google search, I’m not the only person on the web to ask this question. But I’m asking it anyway.

Why the hell does Captain Kirk have concealer make-up in his quarters? Seriously, he uses it to cover scratches on his face after trying to have his way with Yeoman Rand. In order to hide the evidence that will distinguish him from “Wimpy Kirk”, he finds make-up on his dresser and uses it.

I knew he had a toupee and girdle, but make-up? But I jest. This is one of the best episodes of the original series.
