    I was just watching CNN and they did a live interview George Takei talking about his new book, "Oh Myy, There Goes The Internet." They talked about George's popularity, his acting, Brad, being Gay, his fans, etc., etc. Not once did he mention Howard Stern.

    Is it just me or does George think he is some current Pop-Culture Icon? The title of his book "Oh Myy," came from the Stern Show. I know he uses it now in commercials but that came from the Stern Show.

    I like George. However, like many Stern fans I can't think of anything he did from 1970-2006. Yet he doesn't seem to acknowledge his new popularity is a direct result from the Stern Show.

    Am I the only one noticing this????

    1970-2006 he did some Star Trek movies. Other than those I can't think of anything main stream. Honestly though, i'm glad there was no mention or credit given to Howard in this case. During the interview with Howard about George's book Howard talked down to George in a "why bother writing a book" manner. I think even George is sick of Howard at this point.

    It's hard to say.

    The PC-faggot crusade was in need of a harmless, unobjectionable mascot... and George is walking, talking political correctness. Asian. Gay. Kind. Old. Veteran of a beloved sci-fi show.

    So, it's possible that George would've been endorsed by the LGBTBBQ-whatever community regardless of his Stern association. Who knows.

    I stupid was channel surfing the other night and came across another reality show called King of the Nerds. It promised a guest appearance by George, so I thougt I'd watch it long enough to see him, but it was so fucking awful I bailed before he showed up.

    And let's not forget Takei, as sweet as he is, is a loon. He's a dumb blonde cross dressing as an Asian senior.

    It was a perfectly silly response to perfectly silly legislation.

    George has worked steadily before Star Trek and after Star Trek. There hasn't been a time when he wasn't working. Howard may have made his name more recognizable, but George was working just fine before Howard came along. Doesn't matter whether we like the shows he did, or whether we've seen them or not. The point is, he was working steadily and making money. And now, I present to you his credits 1970 -2006. There are more before 1970 and more after 2006, but this is the period you questioned.

    It's just you.When he was on the show in December he lathered up Howard real good.George is a great person.He knows that the show is largely responsible for his profrssional re-birth.

    I think me might be my favorite show guest.
