Gayatri Spivak

I'm not sure where I first heard about her. I started a piece with a main character called Gayatri Spivak. She is now Gayatri Spivak (no relation).

Anyhoo, here are pictures of this learned woman.

Leonard Nimoy on Spock2.o/Uhura2.o

Frankly, I was extremely jealous of his scenes with Zoe Saldana, and I think it’s totally unfair that I never got to do that. I will never forgive the writers and the director, for having put me in this position, to have to be watching that, rather than participating.
