“…They are merely scars, not mortal wounds and you must use them to propel you forward.” Peter David
I thought it appropos to honor the man today.
I’m a big fan of Star Trek and of Trek fiction in general. Peter David is extremely knowledgeable about Trek lore and a master Trek character builder and world builder.
Please consider helping Peter at his blog.
Finally decided to baptize this place officially. I have a LJ blog, but LJ is being bitchy and glitchy. If that continues, I’m moving here permanently.
I fancy myself something of a “quote collector”, so, without further ado, welcome to the new feature here at the least read blog in the known universe: The Quote of the Day! day! day!….
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou
Charles Durning, died of natural causes Monday at the age 89.
His hard life and wartime trauma provided the basis for a prolific 50-year career as a consummate Oscar-nominated character actor, playing everyone from a Nazi colonel to the pope to Dustin Hoffman’s would-be suitor in “Tootsie.” He was also nominated for an Oscar in his role as an over-the-top comic governor in “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” in 1982.
Everyone do a little sidestep today in honor of the man.
(I promise every post won’t be about dead actors).
RIP, Jack Klugman. So long Oscar Madison. Farewell, Dr Quincy. I’ll confess to being (barely) old enough to remember both shows (The Odd Couple in which Klugman played the irascible, slovenly Oscar Madison to Tony Randall’s prim & proper Felix Ingar; and Quincy M.E in which Klugman played a medical examiner in Los Angeles county.
*toasts Mr Klugman*
I wished I’d started this blog on a cheerier note, but maybe something will come up.
