I just checked my stats this morning, and it turns out that between Facebook, Twitter, and just plain old e-mails I now have 1000 subscribers to this blog! 😀 Thank you everyone who checks this out from time to time; I never thought three years ago that this silly little Trek blog would acquire so many viewers! (from all over the world!)
Thanks so much Kids! I look forward to posting new things for you, feel free to send me any suggestions, or if you have a TOS Trek story to share, let me know! And please, if you know anyone who loves TOS let them know about me! May you all Live Long and Prosper! Love ya! Therese
This week for you Nimoy viewing pleasure, I came across a rare and nearly forgotten old series called Stoney Burke. It stars Jack Lord as the title character; a rodeo rider with a heart of gold long before his Hawaii 5-0 days: In this episode, titled ‘Fight Night’. The charity rodeo Stoney is set to ride in is threatened by a prize fight the same night. The managers of the prize fighter, Art Paxton, send thugs to the rodeo to keep their fight from losing customers. And who is this prize fighter they’re so willing to beat people up for? Well, young, fit, Leonard Nimoy, of course. (and the director takes full advantage of the young actor’s physique)
You can see the whole episode here. Nimoy appears around 36 minutes in- draped under a sheet ala Frankenstein’s monster!
Thanks to Karen Bailey Wisecarver for providing the info on this great poster: the below image is a detail of a full Amok Time poster by artist Garth Glazier. So dramatic! Below the detail is the full version, just marvelous! — I wondered what that little necklace in the lower right hand corner was! (T’Pring’s hair and ornaments).
Hey Kids, I finally got this done! Originally I was going to do a age progression step by step with the characters, but this spilled pills concept worked better! 41 down, 39 to go! You can see all of my Star Trek Movie Posters here. Enjoy! Therese
Stumpaa strikes again! This artist often morphs Trek characters with earthly creatures, and this time, Spock takes a go under the sea! Before I even saw the title, I said “That ‘s a Spocktopus!” Pretty clever, if unusual! (although he needs some chest hair!)
