My Weekly Spock – Any Requests?

“Hello, I’m Spock! I’ll be your entertainment for the evening.  May I start with Vulcan love sonnet?”  Great promo shot from ’66

My Weekly Spock: Nimoy as McMurphy in “…Cuckoo’s Nest”

Did you know that May is National Mental Health Month?  Such an important condition, and one that its own sufferers are often too ashamed to get help for fear of being stigmatized.  Never neglect a loved one who is going through their own personal hell; they need all the help they can get.

On a lighter note, here’s Leonard in his 1974 stage performance as Randall McMurphy, the wrongly institutionalized patient in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  Boy I would have loved to see this.

(and yeah, it helps that he’s just in a towel…)

My Weekly Spock: Stripes Suit Spock and Leonard!

Just came across these shots of Leonard in a favorite striped tie, and Spock got to wear a striped tie too! (but that hat, no!)

My Weekly Spock – As the Snow Flies…

Hi Kids,

As I write this we are at 2+ feet of snow outside my door!  (I live in NYS)  This is a whopper of a storm, so naturally I thought I should feature Spock and company in a snowy backdrop today!  Stay warm my fellow storm-bearers!

Poor Sulu. Apparently in The Enemy Within, The Enterprise forgot it had shuttlecrafts!

Spock kisses the howling wind in All Our Yesterdays.

You know it’s cold when your extremities turn white!

My Weekly Spock: 50 Years Ago This Month-Nimoy in TV Guide. (Full Article)

Imagine 50 years ago this month, TV Guide  printed its first cover article on Star Trek, and although it featured both Bill an Leonard on the cover, the main article centered on that interesting young actor who had to wear those pointy ears… Enjoy this piece on the  popular, but humble Mr. Nimoy. ❤  (Thanks Bobbie Reno for the scans!)

My Weekly Spock – Who is that Leonard in the Neighborhood?

A friend on Facebook posted these (Thanks Glo!). She had these pictures from a friend of hers who happened to be in Leonard’s old Boston neighborhood in the ’70’s when he was visiting his Mom!  You can see his mom Dora in the 1st picture with from the back getting into the car.  Ever gracious,  Leonard smiles for the fan in the second picture.  ❤
