    The toy Spock episode of Big Bang was on the other night and it seemed that Nimoy put just as much effort into voicing that role as anything else he's ever done.
    He gave everything his full effort. Even a laserdisc information video where his co-star is a beeping rock.

    I don't want to sound flippant, or crass, but a friend commented on a status update I made and said, "At least he lived long and prospered."

    And I actually really like that. I think it's awfully fitting.

    Yeah, I'd imagine a life like his is exactly the sentiment "live long and prosper" is intended to convey.

    Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future.

    I loved Spock.

    In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for Live long and prosper.” And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it’s clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today.

    This is a shocking way to start my day. But as people have mentioned, he lived a good life and was good to the people around him, and you can't ask for more than that.

    RIP.

    The story you are about to hear is true. By which I mean, it's all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer... Is no.

    My freshman dorm RA made little cards with everyone's name on them, a still capture from the Simpsons, and a quote. I got Leonard Nimoy standing in front of the monorail and this quote.

    I'd post a picture but I think it's still at my parents'.

    Just heard about this. I was only a casual Star Trek fan but this came along like a blow to the gut. I think in some ways, for me, Leonard Nimoy was just as much a cornerstone to my childhood as Robin Williams. It sucks that I'll never have the chance to say this to him, but I'd thank him. Both for his work and for being the person that he was.

    I loved Nimoy in the Kingdom Hearts games, too. He totally sold the hammy role he was given, and I was really looking forward to him being in KH3.

    Well crap. When Kirk said he was going to die alone, I didn't think he meant this.

    It cannot be overstated just how well Shatner played this scene, and the actual death beforehand.

    Did you know: One of Nimoy's last projects was a body-positive series of photographs he took with his wife:
    This current body of work is a departure for me. For a number of years, I have been producing images using the female figure. I have worked with numerous models who were professional people earning their living by posing, acting, dancing, or any combination thereof. But, as has been pointed out to me in discussions at exhibitions of my work, the people in these pictures always fell under the umbrella of a certain body type. I’ll call it a "classic" look. Always within range of the current social consensus of what is "beautiful." In fact, that was the adjective I most often heard when my work was exhibited. The women as they appeared in my images were allotted no individual identity. They were hired and directed to help me express an idea—sometimes about sexuality, sometimes about spirituality—and usually about feminine power. But the pictures were not about them. They were illustrating a theme, a story I hoped to convey.

    These women are interested in "fat liberation." They hold jobs in the theater, the film industry and in business—and together they perform in a burlesque presentation called "Fat Bottom Revue." The nature and degree of costuming and nudity in their performances is determined by the venue and the audience, which can range from children’s birthday parties, to stag parties. I wanted these pictures to be more about them. These women are projecting an image that is their own. And one that also stems fro m their own story rather than mine. Their self-esteem is strong. One of them has a degree in anthropology and will tell you that ideas of beauty and sexuality are "culture bound"—that these ideas are not universal or fixed, and that they vary and fluctuate depending on place and time. They will tell you that too many people suffer because the body they live in is not the body you find in the fashion magazines.
