So, George Takei is gay. If you didn't care, keep on not caring. I wonder who this is a revelation to. I think the most exciting thing that could come out of this is that the LOGO channel might start showing Star Trek movies/reruns, because that would be cool on so many levels.
My friend Mike alerted me to the breaking news on cnn.com. We started then blowing each others' minds by revealing that the following people of entertainment history are also gay:
The Go Bots
If you're looking for something to do, check out Mike's latest band, the Irving Parkas, tonight at Nite Cap. I might be there if I take a nap first. Or check out Mike's super popular band, the Dirty Calypsonians, this weekend at the Darkroom.

White Sox Won...
So, it's pizza stone time tonight! I hope my guests like wine, because I have only 24 cans of pop, but LOTS of wine, and like 2 quarts of sangria. Peace!

|You Are 28 Years Old|
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
For reasons that shall remain unexplained, I wanted to see a picture of the leather red-gold-green Africa medallions that were all the rage circa 1989/1990. Every African American dude, and even one white dude*, wore one at my high school. Try googling it. Try finding one on ebay. Just try! Thank goodness that the "It's a Black Thing, You Wouldn't Understand" t-shirts are available on ebay, modeled by white emo dudes (click the header if you don't believe me.) These medallions were so well known, in fact, that in Normal IL circa 1991, a certain stitchin' Bettie and I devised a plot to make leather Ireland medallions that were orange, white and green to show our Celtic pride.
So, for your inner-city high school fashion flashback, the closest I could get to a pic of the Africa Medallion was Scratch's eagle eye catching them on a Brand Nubians cover. Enjoy.
*In one of my prouder high school moments, I busted that white dude out in front of the basketball team with "Yeah, so, what part of Africa are you from? The Ivory Coast?" I had mad mockery skillz even then.
