Thinking of Boston today as they run their triumphant Boston Marathon and slowly heal the wounds of last year’s attack. Boston has been through many changes, but it will always be Boston Strong. Here’s a portion of a wonderful interview where Leonard remembers the long lost West End Boston of his youth:
(Sorry I’m late today, getting over a bad head cold. Hope you had a nice holiday weekend!)
Can you spot Leonard here with his High School buddies?
Here’s this week’s official Fan Art Friday — This is such a phenomenal piece I couldn’t wait to share it with you –
From professional comic book artists Jerome K. Moore and Jason Palmer, this is the cover of a Star Trek DC comic. Unfortunately I don’t know the title or year of this issue. The story casts the original Enterprise crew into a sort of Invasion of the Body Snatchers scenario. Now I really want to find this comic!
One aspect of the Original Series production design that always intrigued me was the use of openwork grids as dividers in crew quarters, engineering, and other areas on the Enterprise and sometimes on planets. The honeycomb grids were often repainted in different colors and used wherever needed. They were definitely reflective of mid-century style, which was probably considered most futuristic. Yet somehow, as industrial as the grids looked, I somehow found them strangely cozy; maybe it was the way they were lit or especially the way their shadows fell on the characters at stealthy or dramatic moments.
All the grid-work inspired me to manipulate screen caps into this little collage, along with some other fancy openwork panel dividers that set the mood! If you zoom in on this, you can see some of the characters. :-)

This is totally adorable! A fun whimsical piece by Bolkonsky on DeviantArt I appreciate that she acknowledged that New Kirk and McCoy have totally different eye colors than the original! (Really, I wish they gave New Kirk and McCoy color contacts!) But this is really sweet; Love how Uhuras are singing and Scotties are swigging! You can order products with this design too. http://society6.com/bolkonsky/You-Seem-Familiar_Print#1=45
A little shout out to my pals at Facebook for linking me to this great picture and article about Mr. Nimoy’s home in Bel Air. An interesting place, definitely, although more museum-ish than cozy. I’d like to know the story behind what appears to be a burned out cello behind him. I love the tea house!
