Star Trek’s John Cho breaks barriers as romantic lead: 'I would call this revolutionary' | Toronto Star
"John Cho in a romantic lead? It’s hard to remember the last time an Asian male played a romantic character in a television series. Unless you count the time George Takei as Sulu in Star Trek groped Uhura. But that’s because he was momentarily insane. Asians are among the most under-represented minority group on TV and Asian males in romantic leads are practically unheard of. But Cho now finds himself starring in a modern remake of Pygmalion and the colour-blind casting of himself as “Henry” with co-star Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) as Eliza Dooley in ABC’s Selfie for the fall TV season. “I would call this revolutionary. It’s certainly a personal revolution for me,” said the 42-year old actor who says he normally never gets offered such roles. Fans may best know the actor as the current Sulu in the rebooted Star Trek, or as stoner Harold Lee of Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
My Twitter TL yesterday was abuzz with this news. In kdramaland, girls and women are excited that this will open doors for their favorite oppa to segue (back) into the American market. - Anika
Yeah one of my former UCLA classmates posted it to FB. - Jessie
he's 42?? i would have never thought that. also i'm looking forward to seeing that now - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yeah, I was surprised by that, too. I thought he was much younger than me. - Spidra Webster
I saw the trailer for this when it was released a few months back. It was pretty incredibly offensive, honestly. - Soup in a TARDIS
That's not surprising to me. I find ALL of Shaw's plays are offensive. I like My Fair Lady, but it's sexist and classist as hell. - Anika

#saturdayff I like watching horror movies. I guess it's kind of a guilty pleasure.
I don't normally choose to watch a horror movie over something else, but if one is on I have a very difficult time tuning to something else. I do occasionally get in the mood to put one on though :P - Chris Topher

If only every experimental meal would turn out the way @gohomekiki's chili last night did, the world would be a better place. #inlove #urp
For the record, it was my first ever attempt at cooking something with canned chipotle peppers. It was a soupier chili than I usually go for, but it was definitely delicious. In order added to pot: ground turkey; worchestershire sauce, cumin, coriander, and cilantro; onion, mushroom, and garlic; large can crushed tomatoes, small can tomato paste, 2 c water, and can of black beans (rinsed); 2 chipotle peppers (diced) with some sauce; diced fresh bell pepper and the kernels of one ear of corn. - Kirsten

ah the misadventures of me. nothing too heavy. ended up staying at the pub past close with one of the owners and a few other dudes. he's the owner I know the least and his wife is a rad lady I'd love to be friends with. they both seem a little stand-offish to me so I thought it might be a way to get friendlier with them, plus maybe learn something about one of the other regulars who was there, but it just turned into a pissing contest between the guys for the owner's attention, so I left. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich

Dad's heartbreaking Internet plea spurs strangers
"Just days after his infant daughter's death, Nathen Steffel asked strangers on the Internet for only one thing: He and his wife wanted a photo of their daughter without the breathing tubes and tape that masked her little face. The response has been overwhelming. Hundreds of photos, sketches and paintings have poured into the family's northwestern Ohio home and their inbox. "I'm getting messages in languages from all over the world," he said Wednesday. "It's more than I can count." His daughter, Sophia, died last Thursday at a Cincinnati hospital from complications of a tumor in her liver, six weeks after she was born in Columbus. She was awaiting a transplant when she died. Her father posted a message on Reddit asking if anyone could use their photo of Sophia in the hospital and remove the tubes attached to her face and wrist. "Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes," he wrote." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

"One of the most influential sixth-grade science projects ever conducted" - http://observationdeck.io9.com/one-of-...
"One of the most influential sixth-grade science projects ever conducted"
"A 12-year-old Florida girl's science fair project on invasive lionfish has surprised even seasoned ecologists, and led to the first published paper on lionfish freshwater tolerance. Lauren Arrington's relatively simple experiment (put captured lionfish in water of varying saltiness, see if they live) revealed that lionfish can survive much fresher water than anyone expected . . . meaning the rapidly-spreading invasive marine species may also pose a threat to vulnerable life in brackish estuaries." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"(Her dad, an ecologist, rejected her first proposed experiment, which required that he touch dead lionfish to see if their stings still hurt. Lionfish stings are excruciatingly painful, with victims reporting that they "wished they were dead," so her father's scientific obstructionism is understandable.)" - Jessie
Although this was the bigger of the two discoveries in my opinion, there was also a young man who was pub'd as a result of his science fair project - he discovered that something in Truvia kills fruit flies. Both are the children of scientists but it's still pretty damned impressive to discover something as part of your science fair project that adult scientists hadn't yet. - Spidra Webster

Holy carp, heart rate spike! Phone rang and I was convinced it was shy guy cancelling. He was just making sure we were still ago. Deep breaths.
Go T Go! - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
Date was fun. We had dinner, then went to a place for a few beers. Talked about lots of stuff and mingled with other people. He's definitely a cool guy. My concern is a lack of relationship history. Like, almost none. At age 35. That gives me pause. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Hmmmm. One step at a time, Miss T. Maybe he has high standards - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
could be that he's a bit like me and is just really shy around girls and those he feels comfortable with wanna just be friends - Sir Shuping is just sir
what Sir said. i didn't have any dates between 18 and 25. some people go even longer. reaching 35 without any formal dates isn't that weird, IMHO. he probly had plenty of informal "let's go hang out tonight" get-togethers, i'd wager. - Big Joe Silence
Honestly, some people are just shy and have terrible luck. That's kinda my situation, only a little older - I feel like a weirdo, but I swear I'm not defective or anything. I hope. - Jennifer Dittrich
You all make very good points. Thank you as always for sharing them. I remain optimistic. He has sisters he is close with, and that's a good sign in my book. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
I went on two conventional dates that I can recall, one at 16 and one at 18. I have had few serious relationships, but all had non-date related starts at the least. It worked out well :) - Michael W. May
It isn't 'dates' I am concerned about, but the lack of experience with intimacy and partnership. But as B wisely pointed out, one thing at a time. My ex had never been in a serious relationship before, and that sucked for me on a lot of levels, so I am trying not to hold new people accountable for the behavior of previous people and still honor my experience by listening to my instincts. Y'know, all that messy stuff. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android

Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen

As the internet is forever here's a portion of my eulogy yesterday so mom lives forever in another place.

For the benefit of those of you who did not grow up in our full house the first thing you might not know about Barbara is that she was wicked smart. A graduate of UC Davis, a voracious reader, first chair cello in her younger days, and the sole viewer of PBS's Masterpiece Theater. There was no newspaper editor who could get a mistake in grammar or punctuation past her red pen and the articles final resting place of shame on the kitchen refrigerator. - Steve C
But like all true superheroes she used her powers only for good channeling her talents to help the needy, the whiny, and the masses to be molded, aka her children. While being a supermom has come to be a trendy topic I would like to imagine that if a Tiger Mom walked up to our mom, Barbara would simply slap her across the face and turn and walk away shaking her head. Alas since no... more... - Steve C
There are no gang bangers, druggies, or arrests in the family. There is no one on the pole except Diana and her ballet barre. There is only a large collection of kind people plus me who is pretty. - Steve C
And we all got here because of mom. Because she was deathly allergic to nuts but made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone for 15 straight years. Because she was willing to drive from morning till night to get 9 kids through the infinite maze of school, band, and sports. Because she was not only at every baseball and soccer game but more than likely the team mom and scorekeeper.... more... - Steve C
When Genevieve passed away mom lost 1/9th of her heart, and she said I was the strong one. But she is the one who carried on caring for the eight of us. It is a shame to lose her when I am all of 2 weeks into this parenting thing but she gave all she was, and all she had to all of us, and that alone within me is worth more than the advice of a thousand tiger moms. - Steve C
Thanks. - Steve C
