I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Leonard Nimoy at the Atlanta Vulkon in 1995. He wasn't posing for photos, but was signing things for anyone who made a contribution to his designated charity, and he happily chatted for a minute or two with each person during the process. He also gave a wonderful talk, then opened the floor to a very lively Q&A. It was one of the most fun days I've had in my forty-four years on the planet, and I will always treasure this photo he signed for me.

This is creepy. Also kinda cool. But mostly creepy.

It is not hyperbole to say last night was epic. We traveled to Atlanta to see Emo Philips at the Laughing Skull Lounge, an award-winning comedy club that only seats seventy-four people—a very intimate setting, to say the least. We had one of the VIP tables in front, close enough to practically touch the stage. I have all three of Emo’s albums, and even though some of his classics were represented during the set, easily 75% of the show was material I’d never heard before…and he absolutely killed it.

And that would have been amazing enough.

But then he came out after the show to say “Hi” and take photos with people. When I shook his hand and mentioned I was “the one from Twitter who drove up from Savannah,” he said, “Ooh, it’s you! You wait over there, I’ll get you last.” Which was cool, because I thought that meant he wanted to spend an extra minute or two talking without people waiting around for photos.

I did NOT expect that meant once everyone else cleared out he’d take me and Chris backstage to his dressing room area! Once we got back there, he showed he hadn’t just been playing along that he remembered me from Twitter because he said, “White, right? You’ll have to remind me of your first name though. I’m much better with surnames than first names.” We then spent the next ten minutes having a wonderful, relaxed, slightly surreal conversation with him.

I had brought the insert from one of his albums for him to sign, which he happily did, but then he also pulled out another CD and signed that too, saying, “You brought that one with you, but I want to give you something.” He didn’t seem in any hurry to kick us out, but I knew he had a second set later so we thanked him profusely and took a quick photo before heading out.

Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? Sure as hell wasn’t for us!

Apple is scary efficient. Sent something in to be tweaked. They received it in California on Monday afternoon. Fixed it on Tuesday morning. Sent email with shipping info Tuesday evening. (You get to track the progress at every step.) At 8:30 this morning (Wednesday, just to be clear) FedEx rang the doorbell with the box from Apple. The tracking info hadn't even activated in FedEx's online system and the box was at our door, all the way across the country. And all this — shipping both ways and the tweak — on their dime. Love Apple.

Well...fuck. Star Trek was a huge part of my childhood, as my father was a big fan of the original series, and Spock/Nimoy was always my favorite. Eighty-three is a nice, long life, but it's always too soon when it's one of your childhood heroes.
In addition to acting, Mr. Nimoy directed films; published poetry, autobiographies and books of photography; and recorded music.

What do you do when you’ve lost your wedding ring and you know it’s inside the house somewhere but you’ve scoured every inch of the house top to bottom—several times—and still can’t find it? Yep…take apart the washing machine. And there it was, stuck under the agitator.  Note to Self: Check!@#&*%! Pockets!

I knew from the start there was a lot more subtext going on with Snape than met the eye—that he was "good"—and he was my favorite character from the very first book. Really wonderful to be able to watch his story unfold in this manner.

The Quiet Riot documentary Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back is incredibly fascinating. Chris and I stumbled on it last night after the Super Bowl. Don't think you have to be a fan of the band per se to enjoy the look at what goes in to trying to keep a high-profile band going through the years, especially following the death of the lead singer. Much respect to drummer Frankie Banali for all the blood, sweat and tears he's put into that band.
Directed by Regina Russell. With Steven Adler, Frankie Banali, Glenn Hughes, Martha Quinn. The rise, fall and near-resurrection of a 1980s metal band.

Call me crazy, but I don't think it's gonna take Sherlock Holmes to figure out the make of the car that hit our mailbox last night. And, yes, that's really how I found it.
