Sulu comes out
George Takei reveals he is gay

In an interview with Frontiers magazine, “Star Trek’s” Mr. Sulu, George Takei, has revealed that he is homosexual. Takei said that his current role as psychologist Martin Dysart in “Equus” inspired him to publicly discuss his sexuality.

“The world has changed from when I was a young teen feeling ashamed for being gay,” he said. “The issue of gay marriage is now a political issue. That would have been unthinkable when I was young.” The 68 year old actor has been together with his partner, Brad Altman, for 18 years.

The Epic Battle Begins

So I bought Small Sins. Let’s hope it grows on me.

I’ve listened to “Small Sins” twice now and like Green Day there’s a recurring theme. Well, who wouldn’t want to sing about girls and heart-break?

She’s the source” has caught my attention the most. I particularly enjoyed the way he synched multiple instances of his voice and the overall upbeat melody of the track. He uses a similar method in the track, “We Won’t Last the Winter“, though it’s not nearly as upbeat as the previous. At times the band almost sound like “The Polyphonic Spree” but in other instances like in “At Least You Feel Something” he sounds almost like Neil Young. You can hear all of their influences in the music and there seem to be many. It’s a nice mixing pot of old style and originality.

Its melodic value is high but the one-beat synthesizer hinders its potential. That’s the only problem I have with D’Arcy’s work, it’s synthesized. The lyrics are fantastic but the low-key synth doesn’t do it justice. Though I’m not as an accomplished musician as Thomas D’Arcy is I will suggest using more instruments in the next album. This album’s style contrary to their live performances is bland. Though the songs are good, the album still lacks feeling and charisma. If you want that, check out Thomas’ old band: “The Carnations“.

This album isn’t for everyone but it’s nice to hear this style of music coming back. It’s worth a buy, I liked it, and it’s certainly good for some downtime or a drive around the town.

Harry Potter’s ‘flying’ car stolen

LONDON, England — The “flying” car used in the Harry Potter films has been stolen from a film studio lot, police say.

“For those who have not seen the Harry Potter films, this is the car that flies in the movies and is very well known,” a police spokesman said.

The blue Ford Anglia, registration 7990 TD, went missing from the South West Film Studios in St Agnes, Cornwall, western England.

Devon and Cornwall police said the car vanished between 5.30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26 and 4.15 p.m. the following day.

“The film prop was being stored under a tarpaulin. It was not in good condition and could not have been driven away under its own steam,” the police spokesman told the UK’s Press Association.

“It is suspected that it would have to have been towed or full lifted from the scene.”

PC Mark Durkowski, from Peranporth, told Reuters the Ford Anglia was in the grounds of the film studios and visible from the road.

“It was very much in the open,” he said, adding that he did not believe the majority of people in the area had any idea of the car’s connection with the Harry Potter films.

It’s strangely cold and bright tonight. It’s the dead of night and it’s well… bright. I don’t get what’s going on here but it smells dusty.

You mean people didn’t buy me stuff for my birthday :(. Someone should totally buy this album off of my wishlist.

Excuse the frugality, we’ll have about $10CAD left over from the server fund after we move :|.
