The Man, The Myth, and just my number one childhood idol…right next to The Beatles, of course.

Leonard Remembers Boston – VIDEO

This is a really wonderful interview with Leonard Nimoy talking about growing up in the West End of Boston.  ❤  I especially like when he describes losing his accent and getting Sea Hunt work from Lloyd Bridges, and when he discusses how he identified with Spock.    From 2014.

 

My Weekly Spock: Pensive at the Computer.

I got this gorgeous 8×10 of Spock at the Briefing Room computer from eBay last month.   He’s pensive but delightfully intense!

My Weekly Spock -Leonard on Carol Burnett (VIDEO)

Last year,  the first season of the Carol Burnett Show became available for the first time and we were finally able to answer the question, “What was Mr. Spock doing on Carol Burnett?”  The answer is here, and a pretty goofy one too! Enjoy!

My Weekly Spock – A Great Candid!

I came across this beautiful candid of Leonard taken in 1970!  Lovely!  Thanks to Monica Eugenia Reinoso for finding this!  I’m guessing it was at an award ceremony; probably the Emmys. ❤

My Weekly Spock: Leonard Meets Himself.

I’ve been seeing a trend lately on social media with Photoshopped pictures of celebrities side-hugging their younger versions of themselves, so naturally I had to make one with Leonard!

I’ll be doing the whole cast within the next few weeks; stay tuned!

As I write this, I just realized that it was 41 years ago on this day when I first met Leonard in Elmira!   Today is also my sister’s birthday; Happy Birthday, Sis! ❤

(And thanks for your patience, I’ve been busy with my subbing job at the local Elementary School!)

My Weekly Spock – Leonard backstage at Macbeth (1969)

What better way to start the week than with a swinging 60’s Leonard?

I bought this beautiful candid photo on eBay.  Leonard is wearing a groovy deep red Nehru jacket as he visits back stage at a performance of Macbeth.  This was taken almost 50 years ago on January 12, 1969!

I loved the picture and that gentle smile so much, I made a black and white copy too, to see more detail.   Leonard was one cool, cultured dude!

My Weekly Spock: Friendship

This week in America is Thanksgiving, and I’m sure Leonard was thankful for all the friendships in his life. Yeah, I know that his relationship with Shatner soured at the end, but you cannot deny that they were very close.  He loved his all his Star Trek friends, especially  De Kelley, and I’m happy that he found a family in  his cast-mates. ❤  Be sure to check the funny captioned photo below where Leonard doesn’t quite help De do the Vulcan salute!
