Familiar faces showing up in pop culture…

What’s weirder, to just find out that an old friend of yours was once on Star Trek, or to see a picture of a friend lurking behind Neil Partick Harris on a celebrity gossip website? I’ve been confronted by both this week.

Speaking of Neil Patrick Harris, I just found out that his partner, David Burtka, grew up in Canton, Michigan. At least that’s what Wikipedia says.

    I’m guessing that your friends with the terrified looking woman and not Patrick Stewart, right? It would b funny though, if you just realized that your friend Patrick was an actor.

    Canton would absolutely not produce gay people

    Is that the international symbol for goatsee floating about Picard’s head? I’d love to see the following scene.

    The position of Jean Luc’s right arm, after passing your friend in the corridor, concerns me.

    No, my friend Matt is on the right. If you use your imagination, it kind of looks like he could be pushing the couple’s baby carriage for them.

    In the top photo, it’s my friend Michele. Her hair isn’t usually that color. And I agree about Picard’s arm.

    The single finger goatee seems so much more refined.

    Neil’s partner was at u-m the same time as me I’m pretty sure. Some of my college friends were in theater with him I think.
