Start Your Engines - 3.2.15

Those of you who know me know that I am a HUGE fan of RuPaul's Drag Race on LOGO. I've been watching since Season 2 (though I did go back and watch Season 1 aka the "lost" season immediately upon its conclusion). I try to get together with friends every Monday night to watch the newest episodes. I can't wait to finally see Season 7 in all its HD glory, and ALL of the queens this season are incredible. I may do some sort of online thingy - just not sure of what yet. One thing is for sure, though - this season is going to be FANTASTIC! RuPaul's Drag Race airs Monday nights at 9 on LOGO (and OutTV for my Canadian peeps, though I think it's a different time and day).

Below is a few thoughts from Matt on the passing of Leonard Nimoy.

Star Trek has always been a part of my life. One of my earliest memories is my dad letting me stay up late every night for a week when I was 4 or 5 to watch Star Trek IV with him. I remember watching Star Trek reruns in the afternoons after school as a child, and going to the Air & Space Museum when the Star Trek exhibit came to town. Star Trek was my first fandom, and Mr. Spock was always my favorite.

Like many young nerds, I identified with Spock (there are still pictures somewhere of the year I dressed as him for Halloween). Mr. Spock was cool, he was calm, he was intelligent, and he never cared what anyone else thought — he did the smart thing, the right thing. He was our hero — he was my hero. So when Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday, I — we — all lost an idol.

I know that he was more than Spock — I loved “In Search Of”, and his appearances on “The Simpsons” and “Futurama” were comic gold. But Spock was how I first knew him, and how we will all probably remember him. I wish that I could have met Mr. Nimoy once, and told him how much that character meant to me. But I think he knew how much Spock meant to us all.

We lost an icon on Friday. He lived a good life, and he touched so many of us. And that is probably the best legacy we could ask for. Godspeed, Mr. Nimoy, Mene sakkhet ur-seveh.
