Seemed like he lived long and prospered. I didn't realize he was that old.

Thanks, Leonard, for accepting our fixation with Spock.

And now, a little wackiness:

I think you mean you didn't realize that YOU were that old.

Leonard Nimoy’s Passion for Photography

Quote:
... what a lot of people may not know is that Nimoy was also a passionate photographer.

Nimoy picked up an interest in photography as a child, studied photography at UCLA, and even considered changing careers from acting to full-time photographer.

Warning: There is some artistic nudity in the links and videos below.

Our son was over last night and brought his BluRay boxed set of all the Star Trek movies. We watched Star Trek ll, the one with Khan.

It was nice to see it again although I slept through about a third of it, but I do that with a lot of TV

Sad that William Shatner has to skip Leonard Nimoy's funeral. Understandable about the previous obligations, but still sad.

William Shatner feels 'awful' about missing Leonard Nimoy's funeral | Fox News

If real life was Star Trek, just beam Kirk back and forth

I know it's sad that he died, but they should be doing the fal tor pan procedure any time now, and he'll be good as new.

Agreed but let's not forget Uhura and Scotty... or Bones, for that matter.

I think you can judge that based on the ubiquity of the sayings in common use. I think LLAP is pretty popular. Also, "I'm a doctor, not a xxxxxx, dammit" gets some use. But I think "Kirk out" is the winner.

Personally I think the interaction between Shatner and Nimoy and the others is what made it work. He's (Shatner) is a caricature, but he knows it and plays to it. Whatever, it was a great show.

An interesting article in today's Washington Post:

What Spock taught me about being human

Quote:
From the time I was seven or eight in the late 1970s, when most other girls my age had crushes on Davy Jones of The Monkees, Donny Osmond or Michael Jackson, I was obsessed with Spock. He was not just my favorite TV character of all time, hands down, ever. He was my first love.
Also, worth noting, is this aside on the show itself:

Quote:
But unless you yearned to be a sexy, low-level officer in a tight red mini skirt with an impossibly high beehive, a sexy, glorified operator (sorry, Uhura, but that’s what you were back then), a sexy nurse (with the unrequited hots for Spock), a sexy bedmate of the randy Captain Kirk, or a victim, there were no role models for you. Feminists hated the show.
