Gorshin earned another Emmy nomination for a guest appearance on another cult show, Star Trek, and won theatrical acclaim in 2002 by portraying late comedian George Burns on Broadway, New York, in bittersweet one-man show Say Goodnight Gracie.

We've been WORDPRESSed!

After running Xaraya for a few years, it was clear that the goals of Xaraya were no longer consistent with my goals in running this site.

I entered an extended process of evaluating new content management software (CMS) packages and decided to run the exceptional WordPress. Thanks to Doug Daulton for forcefully pushing me toward WordPress! Thanks also to the gang in the WordPress chat room who were extremely helpful during my data migration.

Today, May 24 2005, we roll out the new DrewVogel.COM.

There are certainly some areas that are rough (including the display of Categories over there to the left — I don’t like the way the numbers (which tell you how many articles are in that Category) aren’t on the same line as the Category name), but overall, everything is here!

Please let me know if you spot anything that doesn’t work. There are certainly going to be some issues; some articles used some of the features that were unique to the previous software we ran. Until I can do an audit to locate & fix those, there may be dead links, non-working graphics, and other strangeness. Your assistance is requested… Anything that doesn’t look right to you, draw it to my attention so I can fix it.

Thanks, enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Dear Connie,

I know the counselor said we shouldn’t contact each other during our “cooling off” period, but I couldn’t wait anymore. The day you left, I swore I’d never talk to you again. But that was just the wounded little boy in me talking. Still, I never wanted to be the first one to make contact. In my fantasies, it was always you who would come crawling back to me. I guess my pride needed that. But now I see that my pride’s cost me a lot of things. I’m tired of pretending I don’t miss you. I don’t care about looking bad anymore. I don’t care who makes the first move as long as one of us does.
