Despite what naysayers would have you believe, we're not meant to understand all of it -- the "it" there being "life itself." Simply put, life is. It just is. It is what you make of it. It is what you put into it. It is what you get out of it. Any meaning we get from it along the way is entirely dependent upon what we choose to attribute there in that moment, whether it be happy, sad, or numb.
I can remember being a little boy -- back in the glory days of extreme youth. It's a singular scene in my mind's eye. I don't recall exactly where I was -- my parents I believe had taken me over to a friend's house, and I think I was being deposited there on the living room floor as the adults were going out, or maybe they…Continue
As I've said many times before, I never much cared for Firefly or its subsequent theatrical outing Serenity. It was all well and good ... just not my cup of tea. But I love the work of Adam Baldwin. He's been a terrific addition to The Last Ship on TNT, if you caught any of its first season. Plus, I follow him on Twitter. Baldwin was born on this day in 1962.…Continue
Who's up for a little dabo?
Then how about a little Dabo girl?
Well, how about the best damn Dabo Girl in all the known universe? The always stunningly lovely Chase Masterson of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fame turns another year lovelier today. Our special lady was born on this day in 1963.

Certainly, Tea Leoni was a bit of an "it girl" for awhile. She came out of nowhere and enjoyed great critical acclaim for her work. Sadly -- as fame is fleeting -- it just never quite seemed to last for her. Still, she turned in a terrific performance as part of the sci-fi ensemble, Deep Impact (1998), which saw a group of people trying to prepare mankind for an Extinction-Level-Event. Leoni was born on this day in 1966.…Continue

As I've mentioned many times, I was a slow convert to Syfy's updated Battlestar Galactica. The chief problem I had with it initially was that I thought the pacing on the original miniseries was just plain awful: as it turned out, I watched it on DVD when it was released, and I found that it played better without the massive advertising breaks Syfy had broken it up with on its first airing. Then, I explored the program on DVD except for the final season which I did watch live.
Hats off to veteran character actor Edward James Olmos from bringing his immeasurable gravitas to the production. While I could nitpick some of the lesser players, Olmos was always showing up with his A game intact; and while I'll probably always prefer the…Continue
