Great show! I took notes.

I enjoyed hearing John Tenuto talk about how he uses his interest in Shatner to humanize himself in the classroom. I make it a point to out myself as a Star Trek/Shatner fan whenever remotely appropriate, because it seems to put people at ease to know you're pleasantly nutty about something.

And since sociological imagination came up: Did you know my best friend and I met through LAHB?

A few years back, you posted a priceline-inspired Kirk macro with the caption "Go lower, cupcake". It was by Fresca of l'astronave. I checked her blog out, liked it a lot, and started an e-mail correspondence with her. Long story short, for the past three years, we've been happy roommates!

What d'ya know?
