Silly Texas man who likes Star Trek, Batman, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and 50s schlock. I'm also a big fan of Bettie Page, Elvis, old Hollywood glamour, and most retro. I'm easily distracted by bright shiny things. Or boobs. Or bright shiny boobs.

None of that Next Generation stuff around here, young lady!
