My Blog Has Moved

Well folks, I've finally done it. I've switched to WordPress and my blog is now on my own domain. So say good-bye to Blogger and good-bye to the bling. But don't be sad. Life is full of change. Change is a good thing. It keeps us on our toes. It challanges us and makes us stronger. And as your next President... oops, I got a little speechy there, didn't I?

Anyway, check me out at:

I'll look for you there.

George Takei & Brad Altman Wed

Nichelle Nichols, Altman, Takei, & Walter Koeniger

George Takei (from Star Trek) and his partner of 21 years--and yes, I said 21 years--Brad Altman decided to face their final frontier by marrying in Los Angeles. His past co-stars, Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koening, were maid of honor and best man respectively. Takei is 17 years Altman's senior. There are plenty of jokes here but I just can't bring myself to make fun of a gay couple that has not only been together for over 2 decades but who also speak out for gay rights on a regular basis; however...

Poor Nichelle has not aged well. She looks like a freeze-dried version of Tina Turner from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. And someone better make claim to that lost ferret that has settled on Koenig's head. Plus where's Captain Kirk? Perhaps Shatner stayed behind the scene and assisted everyone with their travel arrangements. Somehow I can see him hiding in the background, making those karate chop/kicks he does so well in those commercials. Anywho, I say congrats to George & Brad. May you live long and prosper!

21 years, wow thats amazing. How many couples can say that these days? The ferret must be captured and released back into the wild, there is absolutely no need for him to wear it on his head, I found it most distressing!!

Oh, I didn't even know George Takei is gay! Wow! 21 years must be a record of some sort, especially in Hollywood.
