I was over at Arnold’s house (yeah, like you know who Arnold is) and we watched the Star Trek episode “Whom Gods Destroy” which centered around Garth of Izar — who had reinvented himself as Lord Garth.
I must say, I do like the title “Lord.”
I myself have both drawn a bunny-like character known as “The Lord of the Wabbits” and have been referred to as The Lord of the Wabbits.
So when I got home, I was curious how does one really officially become a Lord?
Turns out it’s pretty easy to get a title:

I saw an ad promoting the new Star Trek movie as “This is not your father’s Star Trek” — blech.
“This is not your father’s Star Trek” is a phrase that has more significance to the generation of kids that grew up watching Star Trek reruns than it does to the kids it is trying to attract.
The phrase they are alluding to is “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile” — a ill-conceived attempt to get people my age to buy Oldsmobiles (rather than our parents/grandparents). The end result of that brilliant bit of marketing… no more Oldsmobile.

As my friend Jim used to say (quite often),
If Bea Arthur married Arthur Murray,
she would Bea Arthur Murray.
When prominent celebrities from from childhood die, I often look up with biographies. Maude is one of those shows I sort of remember, though I think it mostly dealt with topics that were of no interest to me. And Golden Girls is a TV show everyone has heard of. So I was kinda surprised to find out that Bea Arthur was actually involved in a Star Wars project.
