::heh:: Not sure I trust the Sun, but ...
Thanks for the entertainment over the years, Mr. Nimoy.
Enjoy your retirement. Or not, as you see fit ...
Leonard Nimoy has announced his retirement - and this time he means it. "Countless times, I thought it was done," he told the Toronto Sun, referring to his 60-year career. But now it is. Done, that is. He can now revive the title of his first autobiography, I Am Not Spock, published in 1977 when he was trying to distance …
Too bad you couldn't have posted this article *before* all of the events that it talks about using future tense.
Nimoy's appearance down in Vulcan made the news throughout Alberta. It looks like a good time was had by all.
(I lived in Vulcan for a couple of years, back when it was famous for its dozen or more grain elevators.)
Leonard Nimoy stared in a US television show named "Star Trek" which was kinda like "Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion", but with more episodes, in colour, and with far less budget.
He played a science officer who was half alien. They depicted that by, believe it or not, glueing prostetics to his ears.
I think the shoestring budget was one of the reasons why it was so popular in english speaking countries. It kinda looks like "Ijon Tichy: Raumpilot", but with _less_ budget.
There is a German dub of that series availiable. It was first availiable in 1972 on ZDF and then later migrated to Sat1 and Kabel 1.
I don't know about the German version, but the English Wikipedia has LOTS of articles about many facets of Star Trek. The original series really was a path-breaking series for it's time. Someone recently loaned me the full set of episodes as dubbed in Japanese, and I'm surprised how many of the stories have managed to stand the test of time--though I acknowledge that I'd forgotten how cheesy some of them were...
As far as 'live long and prosper', Leonard Nimoy has already done that. At least by earthling standards.
at the Time computers factory in bolton, sadly, i wasnt there but the consensus was a more pleasant man you would struggle to meet.
Spock, we **will** miss you...
Or as spitting image put it, To Be Or Not To Be.. That is, illogical , captain!
Beer, cos i'd buy him a romulan ale..
He never came to the Time Factory - which was in Simonstone anyway, miles away from Bolton
He never came, so we never met him, and his adverts did sweet FA for our sales, though they cost us a packet in fees. After that all we could afford for the next advert was a scruffy old drunk who we called "Captain Apocalypse". Between the two of them they scuppered sale so well we nearly went bust four years before we finally did
Yeah, I switched to OS/2 Warp for a couple of years. It had it's annoyances (a single threaded UI being the biggest pain) but it meant I never used Win95 and didn't see much of Win98 either.
OS/2's memory management was way better than Windows - and probably still is. It's more akin to mainframe thinking where RAM is just the fastest storage and is allowed to fill up and swapout as the system progresses. None of this stupid working set trimming malarky.
It was also a damn fine multitasker. I remember being sat at home using a 386 based machine to download from Compuserve while I played the first of the Crammond F1 simulators. Happy days :)
He was in good spirits this weekend, despite the unbelievable crowds of people he had to entertain. (Including an amusing (horrifying?) moment when he emerged from an auditorium to a surprised crowd of people lined for an Panel with some BSG actors. He was walking around the crowd; cheering and hooting occurred. He then...went to the bathroom. A big of a stunned silence on the part of onlookers followed by some laughter and general "well that was kind of surreal and terrible on our parts.")
I wish him well, and am glad I was able to meet him over the weekend. Good fortune to you, Mr Nimoy!
...under the name of "Bat-Ear Stevens"?
I wonder if he still gets a cut from "Mission Impossible", the original, playing this very day on a digital channel I've forgotten, alongside "Ironside" and, uh, "T. J. Hooker".
I believe he was on a "Columbo" the other day, too. I didn't watch, but I think he did it. The star guest usually did it, right? (The murder, I mean. And "Columbo" is the show where we get to watch it done, and you suspect that Columbo himself has at least seen the cast list, why else stick to the most famous suspect on the screen besides himself? Or does he pester a lot of other people off-screen that we don't need to see?)
