I was watching a Japanese anime about a town being ravaged by vampires, and they made a big deal about how dead people in that town were buried in the ground, which is unusual in Japan. Then it suddenly hit me: we could all avoid the coming zombie apocalypse just by cremating our dead. Bronze urns bumping down the road murmuring "brains, brains" would be nothing more than a traffic hazard.

How come it never once occurred to me that Sulu might be gay?

Because his character was completely asexual. The only choices in the OG Star Trek were straight and randy, straight and inhibited (but secretly randy), straight and monogamous (but randy within the bonds of matrimony) or Sulu.


Well, evil Sulu in the alternate universe episode macked pretty heavily on Uhuru. But that might have been because he was evil.

Never underestimate the power of a goatee.

I believe that in the alternate universe episode ("Mirror, Mirror") it was the evil Spock who wore a goatee. Sulu was feeling frisky, for sure, but he was clean-shaven. Been a while since I've seen that episode, so I may be wrong....

I was paging through a LIFE magazine from the 60's when I came across a subscription card for 27 weeks for $2.97. There's no expiration date so I'm going to send it in. The reason I'm posting this is because of the line on the bottom of the card.

Send no money. LIFE will bill you.

It seems a little angry around here today.

Have we noticed the moon in general? Or has something happened to it recently?

It switched to fluorescent, so it's got a colder, less romantic glow.

That was the moon from a couple years ago. It's become warmer since, but takes forever to get to full shining strength.

Why have I always thought that Lenny Kravitz was really tall, like 6'7" or something? I just saw him in Hunger Games and got in an argument with my friends because I didn't believe it could be him.

In my opinion a full moon affects the behavior of animals, humans included. It sure looked full to me, maybe that's why the anger that jman111 noticed.

Are you saying that the full moon made me see Lenny Kravitz as some sort of a giant?

Mmmm, scrambled eggs with scallions and a little sharp cheddar. Perfect replenishment after my first work all-nighter in many months. Didn't have heavy cream, but the half and half did all right. And DAMN this coffee is good.
