Re: question re. Tuvok/Vorik

I really need to finish 6 feet under.

But there's so much I need to finish which I started.

The other day I realized how much I loved Amanda Peet (romantically and completely) and realized that it's been a year since I took a break between season one and season 2 of Jack and Jill.

I loved 6 feet under. Every time I thought it was getting a bit stale, going into a lull it was actually building up to the next development. Some of the insanity was so familiar and believable.

Check out the "New Frontier" novels. Dr Selar's brother is gay.

Unless he's unreasonably cheerful all the time, that's not the kind of gay I'm talking about.

Sybok, the laughing Vulcan.

Dude, get out of the 80s.

Slon... Is a 90s boy I think?

September 2000.

Not the 90s, but still the 20th century.

Re: question re. Tuvok/Vorik

Didn't they actually call it the Gay 90's? The original 90's, original as in the first 90's where they named them.

Hey I'm always slow to adopt new fashions. I was still using a vcr until 3 years ago and still haven't bought a cellphone.

I'm not that old, but talking about gay people did mean something other than sexuality back then.

Re: question re. Tuvok/Vorik

It's really rough dealing with all the dictionary definition changes that occur during one's lifetime. Especially if a word used when as a kid is later described as archaic. But my parents were already in their 40s when I came along.

Edit: As an example of changing definitions, I used to collect Hardy Boys mystery books, and during the 60s some of the older books still had 1930s and 1940s copyrights. In one of those early books, bad guys were flooding a room the boys were trapped in with some sort of knockout gas. The younger brother actually said, "Frank, I feel queer." That meant something different by the 60s.

You do take delight in painting yourself as a grumpy old man, but you're not that old.

Gay has meant homosexual from as early as the late 19th century

Are you a 200 year old vampire?

Re: question re. Tuvok/Vorik

That factlet I did not know. About the etymology of gay, not about Melakon's ancient curse.

Re: question re. Tuvok/Vorik

I was checking to see if the changeover happened in the 1960s or the 1970s.

Let's just assume that it's usage, just like Melakon was uncommon and spotty until the 1960s.
