My Weekly Spock: Leonard, the Youth.

What a fine young man!  Is it me or is his right ear sticking out more than usual here?

Rigoletto Looks Awfully Familiar…

This weekend, our local Opera company, Tri-Cities Opera is presenting their first opera of the season —Rigoletto.   I’d love to see it if I had the time (and money) yet, oddly, the thing that struck me immediately about its poster art was the main character.   Does anyone else see an old Leonard Nimoy under the clown makeup here? (Blue eyes notwithstanding)

FArFri: More Classic TOS Portraits (Kirk,Spock, McCoy) by Jason Cheeseman Mayer

Here’s the rest of the current TOS portraits by Jason Cheeseman Mayer .   I love the poses he chose and especially McCoy’s eyes!  I hope he does Chapel, Rand, Scotty, and Chekov!

Sorry I’m late this week Kids! Getting very busy with work!  Here’s some smooth Leonard for you, let’s just get on his ‘right’ side.  🙂

FArFri: Classic TOS Portraits (Part I: Sulu and Uhura) by Jason Cheeseman Mayer

For this (and next) week’s fan art, I’ve found some wonderfully rich portraits of the TOS cast by artist Jason Cheeseman Mayer (jason cm) on DeviantArt. This week we have Sulu and Uhura.  I love the poses he chose and how beautiful he  makes the eyes.  More next week!sulu03med_by_jasoncm-d81fdcx

#59 The Paradise Syndrome

As I finished this, I realized I had subconsciously made a couple of pyramids; or more accurately, teepees.  The three Kirks here form a triangle, and Earth Mother Miramanee forms a loving triangle around her beloved Kirok.  🙂

Of course the great triangular obelisk lurks in the background; that must have cost a pretty penny for a big prop that would only be used once!

I think Sabina Scharf was gorgeous as Miramanee, even if her skirt was inaccurately short!

Wideo Wednesday: Canticle/Scarborough Fair

It’s a rainy Wednesday.  I need some Simon and Garfunkel…

Update:  Adding this version by S&G with Andy Williams – Just beautiful. Thanks to scrapper Winston for reminding me of it!

#58 Elaan of Troyius

My latest poster!  I loved France Nuyen as Elaan — and thought it would be good to show the story from her point of view.  ( Gotta love that wig!)

My Weekly Spock: Some on-set silliness

I’m always happy to find candid stills of TOS production!  Here’s some gems from all three seasons.   Love the lollipop (it was hot on those sets!)
