Friends: Facebook has been limiting the number of fans who see each post, shrinking it down to the lower single percentages. It appears they want pages to pay to post. This is understandable—they’re a company and need to keep shareholders happy. But my fans clicked “like” because they presumably WANT to see our funnies, so don’t get shut out!
If you don’t want to miss the fun, make sure you turn on “Get Notifications.” Go to Oh Myyy and click the “Liked” box then select “Get Notifications.” Do it on my page George Takei as well. Thanks — Uncle George http://ift.tt/1hVAWFA
Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.
"She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid."
Star Wars fan Bill Deacon transformed his 1974 Chevy Malibu into a street-legal replica of the Millennium Falcon. The road vehicle-turned-spacecraft features all sorts of great details, including HANCHWY vanity plates and a field of streaking stars around the ship’s bow on the hood and front bumper. But our favorite feature is the cockpit mounted in place of the
rightstarboard side-view mirror that contains Han Solo and Chewbacca action figures.
"My study-office is near the front of the house. There are full-size windows that let me see who’s coming and going. I have a customized L-shaped worktable and a comfortable black swivel chair. Over the desk are photos and memorabilia from projects I’ve worked on. To my right is a gas fireplace and a mantle with three Al Hirschfeld drawings—two of me in "Star Trek" and one when I appeared on Broadway in "Equus." On shelves are a number of my photographs that are in several museums’ collections.
There are no Spock uniforms in my closet, but I’m totally comfortable with the character now. There was a time many years ago when I was concerned that the three years I spent playing him on TV would overshadow my career. I’m grateful for Spock. As someone who grew up Jewish in Boston, I was always “the other”—an alien. So I get it.
Sitting on my desk is a small black box with a glass window. Inside is a pair of pointed ears. These are the ear tips I wore on final day of shooting for the TV show. I had them mounted. From time to time, I meet people who give me the “Star Trek” treatment. I don’t mind. Fortunately, no one has asked me to beam them up lately.”
