Many of you will probably not have noticed this, as the headline in question was only up for a few hours, but apologies should go out to those who were annoyed by the original title for the news item 'Mulgrew Talks Taking Risks With Relationships' - judging from the associated BBS thread and my email inbox, there were quite a few of you.
Originally, the headline for that news item was 'Mulgrew Says Hologram Preferable Over Chakotay', which, as you can see if you read the actual news item, was a rather liberal interpretation of what Mulgrew actually said. The reason I did originally use that headline was that, as mentioned before, we've been looking for ways to spice up the site a bit, and unfortunately when I decided on the old headline it was after midnight and I let myself be carried away a little. I've since altered the headline to a more appropriate version, and will in the future try to avoid things like this happening.
In other news, it's time for my yearly Roxette plug again, as today airplay is actually supposed to start for their new single, 'The Center Of The Heart (Is A Suburb To The Brain)'. In the unlikely event that I'm actually not the only Star Trek fan interested in this, the official Roxette fan club has a 30-second sound clip on its page, as well as links to the full version.
My own first impressions are actually more positive than with their previous album-launching single, 'Wish I Could Fly'. This new song is up-tempo and also features male singer Per Gessle, two ingredients of most of my favourite Roxette songs. The song reminds me a bit of Savage Garden's 'I Want You', which was the song that got me interested in that band in the first place, so hopefully this new Roxette song will have a similar effect on people unfamiliar with the band. Be sure to check it out here.
