My Weekly Spock: Leonard and George

As George Takei’s labor of love Allegiance goes to Broadway this fall, it seemed a great time to remember  what good friend George was with Leonard. I found some wonderful pictures, not just from their TOS days, but though ST:IV and in 2012 when Leonard went to see the pre-Broadway version of Allegiance.  I’m so glad Leonard got to see his friend George’s wonderful musical, and I hope I’ll see it too!  The final picture was taken in 2014.  I’m sure George misses his friend.  <3

Also note the wonderful picture here on the ST:IV set, where the little boy (Sulu’s great-great-great-great… grandfather in the story) is shyly standing in front of Leonard.    Sorry that scene of Sulu and his distant relative was never filmed, but the idea of it was was sweet.

Great Interview with George Takei on ‘On The Media’

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:

The Daily Scrapbook – The last of Media Spotlight, and a super 70’s George!

Hey kids, here’s today’s flashback:  The last few pages of Media Spotlight and a great photo of swinging George Takei in his best 70’s gear!  Good ‘ol George was a regular fixture at the Conventions, always ready with a smile and a pen ready for autographs! George was described in David Gerrold’s World of Star Trek as one of the ‘smilingest’ human beings you were ever likely to meet, and he delivers his million dollar smile here! I love George!  Sadly, this is the last of my Media Spotlight Magazine, and I don’t have any more copies, but if I should come across any in my travels, you’ll see the here!

The Daily Scrapbook 7/12/13 –(12/4/1979) The Stardates have been kind to Mr. Sulu

Here’s Today’s Flashback:  From December 4, 1979, a local review of George Takei’s visit to BInghamton at Broome Community College.  Funny when you thing that as promotion tours go, it’s surprising how often we had Trek stars come to our little upstate haven.  Why Bingamton and nearby areas?  My theory is that at the time, it was still an IBM town, and Paramount had a targeted audience with all the computer geeks there!

Here’s today’s flashback:  From November of 1979, a quick blurb about the  Star Trek comic coming soon to our daily newspaper and an ad announcing a visit at my local community college by Mr. Sulu himself, George Takei!  (I was a new student at BCC at the time, and my enthusiasm for Trek hadn’t dimmed)
