Hi All! Hope all my followers in the U.S. had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday! For all the rest of the world, I hope you take a little moment every day to count all our blessings. So many little things to be thankful for; love of family and friends, a hot meal, and just a few minutes to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.
And now that the Christmas Shopping has officially begun, just remember that the greatest gift you can give is your time and friendship. The best things in life are truly free! <3
Here, have some Turkey!
Hi All! Now that the Trek Core TOS gallery is back on line — I was able to finish my most recent poster — And the Children Shall Lead.
It wasn’t the greatest of episodes; the producers basically wanted to recreate the atmosphere of the the much better Miri, but Melvin Belli? Really?? Creating the poster my first thought was how to portray the little
brats darlings and a deceptively angelic approach seemed appropriate. Note, the backdrop is actually the Friendly Angel’s robe. Meanwhile, Kirk and Sulu are freaking out, Uhura is devastated and Spock just wants to meditate himself out of there!
From NPR’s program ‘On the Media’, here’s a great new interview with George Takei. by Bob Garfield. George covers everything from Trek, Howard Stern, Politics, his show Allegiance, and most profoundly, his remembrances of life in the Japanese-American internment camps. A great interview before a live audience, enjoy:
Our favorite Uncle!
I meant to post this the other week before Election Day but couldn’t find it! I just love his smile here, and looking so sharp! Mr. Nimoy, thanks for all the joy and talent you’ve given the world! Wanna come over for Thanksgiving? ;-)
Back around 1978 or 9 I was given this cool (and for the time) state-of-the-art computer-printed illustration of Spock! (Possibly from one of my siblings) It’s antiquated by today’s standards, but still pretty cool. I love the quote, yet although I don’t think Spock ever said this, it totally fits his personality.
I recall ‘tweaking’ the original with a felt-tip marker (making more hairs on his head and darkening the collar). It’s been mounted on cardboard and has been sitting with my stuff in the basement for years. I scanned it and fixed its yellowing and age marks with Photoshop, but it still has a place in my heart :-)
Did you see today’s ‘Mother Goose and Grimm‘? Occasionally creator Mike Peters goes off topic, and here, we get some Trek silliness :-)
