RIP Nimoy.  I'd forgotten that he'd announced he had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

On the film and tv related news.. Leonard Nimoy has passed on.

 

NYTimes - Leonard Nimoy Dies at 83

Oh great. Now I'm going to spend all afternoon watching Star Trek clips and being all nostalgic and sad.

 

RIP - he lived long and prospered.

Oh, well, that's terrible news. :( I had no idea he was in such ill health.


Never attribute to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.

Merged topic with posts from movies thread. The saddest mod action ever.

 

RIP Leonard Nimoy, nobody lived long and prospered like you.

A good span and a very fine career.


Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

It was great to see him return to the role in the new movies.  He seemed ageless.

83 is pretty good though. You can't really ask for more.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

On the bright side, this gives me good reason to watch some classic episodes.

 

Balance of Terror is my favorite. The Galileo 7 is the first I remember watching.

At least now they can't pointlessly insert him into another reboot movie, unless he already filmed footage... :geek:

 

Seriously though, another piece of my childhood just went to the great beyond, RIP.
