George Takei officially came out of the closet (Cabinet?) last week. He stated, "The world has changed from when I was a young teen feeling ashamed for being gay. The issue of gay marriage is now a political issue. That would have been unthinkable when I was young."
I have to agree with him. I think people’s view of gay people has changed somewhat over the years. Being black myself, I understand the meaning of being different, and there have been great strides in race relations to a point. But, now we also have to get over this mistrust of gays.
But, most Trekkies knew he was already gay to begin with, so it’s not a shock.
Note: I saw Mr. Takei in person one time. He walked right pass me, and I really didn’t put two and two together.
Someone shouted out, “Hello, Mr. Takei!”
I turned around and saw Takei walking away, as he waved to the person who spoke to him. I then turned to my friend Joey, “I didn’t know. I could have gotten him to sign something for me.”Joey merely shrugged.
Terms for the World
Here are some interesting definitions for groups…from http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Emo&page=1
Girls who are amateurs at posing slutty and seductive. They do the cliche poses, and think they are sexy by showing their mostly flabby pale white stomach, and their make-up drenched faces. They have websites up with a slutty layout, and have a whole archive of pictures of themselves doing different, or maybe even tons of the same, slutty poses, making idiots of their unattractive selves. Sometimes they even charge you for a membership! It's quite humorous.
A girl, particularly a teenager, who will show her breasts or more on a webcam for all to see for free.
Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who dont smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarfs (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle.
Person who models the abstract and later specific behavior of individuals
trying to make a claim on certain media,i.e. literature, art, books, poetry, movies. A trend will then arise of "packaging", at which point, genres will mix into socially acceptable grab bags of media and somehow spawn a fashion, normally causing these disillusioned individuals to start resembling the traits of characters, band members, and each other because he or she likes this " underground" lifestyle and wants to be accepted by a discriminating crowd. In short, the sucker thinks these people have all the answers and conforms to some " be- yourself-but-be-us-subculture".
Crazy Woman Jumps From moving Van
Comment: What happens when a 49 year-old woman jumps from a Corrections Van that was going 75 miles per hour? Nothing good…
A female inmate jumped out of a moving prison van. What the heck did she think would happen when she jumped out of a van going that fast?
Back in the day, I used to play the hell out Tekken 2-3. I loved playing those games. Tekken 3 was my favorite game, and my favorite character was Xiaoyu. She’s almost as cute as Rikku and she moves very fast. Plus, she has that hidden school dress (press start, to get it); I know I have a dirty mind. Plus one of her victory poses is her doing the splits, what man doesn’t love that.
Tekken Tag came out and I played that game every day.
Flash forward many years later, some friends and I decided we wanted to go see the movie DOOM last week. But, we had to wait for a late showing so we hung out in the arcade.
On the Dance-Dance Revolution machine, two dumb blond teenagers tried to play the game on the retarded level and failed. But, watching blonds fail is always a treat and never gets old. Toward the back of the machine, near the dance pad, there was light-skinned black guy watching the girls dance badly. His expression was that of hunter sizing up his prey. His faded shirt seemed oversized for him, perhaps because he was really skinny. He hair was unkempt.
After the two blonds departed the machine, he stepped up and slipped three coins into the machine. He placed the mode to expert, and danced his ass off, getting prefect scores in every move. I’ve never seen a pro-Dance Dance Revolution player before.
After watching him for a while, I decided to go to the Tekken 5 machine to play the game. I plunked some coins into the machine and played through 4 lvls. My friends were standing behind me and watching me play.
Dancing Champ decides to jump off the DDR machine and dip under my friends, nearly shoving them out of the way. I never have seen a man move so quickly. He joined the game, challenging me for my game. We picked out players and fought. Needless to say, I got my ass handed to me. I stepped away, feeling smaller than Gary Coleman.Afterwards, I came to realization that I needed to play more Tekken. I hate losing…
Chained Heat 2 reviewComment: Sadly, I actually remember watching this movie when I was younger, on HBO. Not a good movie but has a lot of female nudity in it. And back then, that’s all you needed.

Dude, WTF? This is a video of a guy dancing in a Best Buy store, I mean he’s really dancingComment: Okay, I will admit that I sing songs that I hear in stores and will sing them fairly loud, but I won’t dance and jam like this guy. For a old dude, he can get down.

More Rambo 4 news, besides the New Rocky movie
Comment: here’s the info so far…
((The franchise that drew "First Blood" is back with a fourth installment. Millennium Films in conjunction with Emmett/Furla Films and Equity Pictures are partnering on a $50 million "Rambo IV." Sylvester Stallone is attached to star. The story centers on former Vietnam vet John Rambo, who is living a reclusive life back home in the U.S. But when a girl goes missing, he is forced to abandon his quiet lifestyle and take justice into his own hands. No director is attached, and the screenplay is in the early stages. (Tatiana Siegel)))In GTA Vice City, I loved how the radio (fake) ads made fun of the Rambo films.

Look at the blond with the big teeth, what a goofy face. But, she’s still kind of cute.
Look at those two women, looks like they want to eat Orlando Bloom.
Where's the Hoggs shirts?
Look at the woman at the right end of the line. She looks pissed “WHY?”
Did someone die? Why are you two crying?
Remember the scene in the Postmen? Here it is again
Do we really need a bus? Come on
________________________________________Great, the last thing Orlando Bloom wants to see is his elf character. What’s next a Marry Jayne poster for Kirsten Dunst?

King Kong gets Three hoursComment: the redheaded monster himself, has stated that Peter Jackson’s King Kong movie will be 3 hrs long. For people that like long movies like me, I am overjoyed.
Bad news, no IMAX Kong.
Surrounded by fanboys drooling over the car.
The top Hollywood car is none other than Back to the Future car the De Lorean. It flies, goes back in time, it’s a train, and many other things.
Sure the De Lorean isn’t a good car to have, but the child inside me still wants one.((Mr. Fusion powers the time circuits and the flux capacitor; the internal combustion engine runs on ordinary gasoline, it always has. There's not going to be a gas station around here until sometime next century. Without gasoline, we can't get the DeLorean up to 88 miles per hour.))
Yesterday, I popped the best bag of popcorn ever. All the popcorn popped up, overfilling the bowl. I brought the bowl downstairs and rested it on my chair’s armrest. I messed around with my printer and then sat down. My elbow collided with the bowl, sending it onto the floor. Half of the popcorn ended up on the floor. To say the least, I was pissed.
With a large amount of popcorn on the floor, I had two options, A. Use the vacuum cleaner to get up the popcorn up, or B. call the dog to eat all the popcorn up.Begrudgingly, I followed Option A. However, hearing the vac turn on, my dog appeared and proceed to eat some of the popcorn as well.

Simply put, Doom is a loud and dumb movie that doesn’t have much substance. However, does anyone really care? It’s a movie based on a first-person shooter. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never had the pleasure of playing the videogame. I’ve never been a fan of first-person shooters. It’s not my thing. And, yes I entered the theater believing it was going to suck badly, and to my surprise, it didn’t suck that badly.
The movie opens up with a nice action/horror scene that serves the movie well. There is a very good CGI shot of the planet Mars and then it zooms in on one location. (Note: This was a shot William Shatner wanted for the opening to Star Trek: V, but couldn’t get the money for it.) The movie slowly builds on itself and doesn’t really show a monster for a while, which is a good thing. Never show your hand up front. The gore is very high, the way R-rated movies should be.
The acting in the movie is generally bad, and the only stand out person is The Rock. He seems to really enjoy playing the leader of that squad. The character is supposed to be way over the top. The music is horrible and not even worth mentioning. The movie starts to completely fall apart toward the end. I mean all logic and storytelling devices are thrown to the wind. Worst part of the movie is the First-Person “vision” we get as the main character dispatches the bad guys. Probably the worst part of the film.
Despite never paying off subplots and poor acting by some actors, the movie is a popcorn film and people shouldn’t debate the plot problems. It’s just a dumb American action movie, so have fun with it.
The Rock: “Uh, isn’t this a little like Stargate?”
Director: “Shut up, we don’t need anymore Lawsuits, the Aliens one is still pending!”
I hate this part of the movie. Just dumb
Rock: “Keep Firing! We have to fend off these critics as long as we can! Don’t let them touch you!”
The dude: “I was in bloody Lord of the Rings, before this.”
The Rock: “I was in Scorpion King before this, so this is a step up.”
