Dreams Don’t Die, or Why I Love Xanadu So Much

I don’t obsess about Xanadu like I used to. “Time to watch Xanadu again!” Over the years, it pops up and I get a twinge of nostalgia. Songs or dialogue hurtle me back to  the pimple-faced, gay 15-year-old, who meticulously cut out the silhouette of Olivia Newton-John from the back of the soundtrack, and taped inside my locker door.

DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 21: “Royal Marriage”

Lucy gets engaged … but not for long! It’s a very special afterschool special edition of Dallas! This newspaper and it’s Ewing-centric content! So, I don’t remember seeing this episode when it aired. I’d be surprised if my parents knew what was coming (homosexualism!) but I also wouldn’t be unsurprised. I applaud Dallas and Bobby’s character in particular for not treating it as any more scandalous than last week’s “Financier in Love Nest” headline. However, I feel like I would have remembered this if I…

Logan’s Run — Season 1, Episode 9: “Judas Goat”

Logan’s Run – Season 1, Episode 4: “The Innocent”

Another force field, more Sandmen than ever before and mixed messages for an omnipotent psychically-powered girl? Sounds like it’s time to crank up the pew-pew music and head out on the next leg of Logan’s Run! I’m a force field lovin’ fool This retread of the original series Star Trek’s Charlie X is … probably part of the reason this show got cancelled. There’s not much to say about this one.

Top Ten Reasons to Buy My New Book!

  After a year of work (well, a couple of months of crazy late nights, a lifetime of obsessive fandom and many many calls to my editor), Star Trek The Book of Lists came out in November.

Thus, with no further ado … The Top Ten Reasons to Buy My New Book.   10. It’s about Star Trek. ’nuff said. 9. …
