Leonard Nimoy aka ‘Spock’ dies at the age of 83 (VIDEO)

Leonard Nimoy, best known for his role as Spock, the pointy-eared, half-human, half-Vulcan, on “Star Trek,” died at his Los Angeles home Friday morning, following a hospital stay earlier this week. His death, which was confirmed by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, was due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which Nimoy said was caused by years of smoking. Nimoy lived a long life and prospered for 83 years, enjoying a life filled with poetry and photography alongside his acting and directing career. He also delighted in music and wrote two autobiographies – “I Am Not Spock” in 1975 and “I Am Spock” in 1995 – in which he revealed the fascinating influence that the character had on his own personal life. Outside of working on the starship Enterprise, Nimoy liked flying in real life, was a pilot and owned his own plane. After the “Star Trek” series, Nimoy, who revealed he had turned into an alcoholic but later recovered, also remained close friends with co-star William Shatner. Nimoy was survived by his wife, Susan, of 26 years and two children, Adam and Julie, and was said to still have the last pair of pointy ears he wore while working on the show.

My Funny Valentine – An Unmasked Story

The very first Valentine’s day I spent with my new wife, we were separated by a terrible snowstorm. I was living in a town in upstate New York, upon which I’ve based a lot of the geography and economic observations of Arcadia. I had a house there, empty except for myself and a couple of Maine Coon cats named Marvin K Mooney, named after the first Dr. Seuss book I ever loved, and Riff Raff, after…

Ashlee Simpson - Undiscovered

"Touch me now, how I wanna feel something so real. Please remind me, my love. And take me back. ‘Cause I’m so in love with what we were. I’m not breathing I’m suffocating without you. Do you feel it too?”

Every day is silent and grey in Morrisseyland, and, although we know that this cannot be true, we appreciate the darkness of his perspective, for it makes ours seem lighter. Yes, we’re painfully aware that we should always look on the brighter side of life, but for those times when there’s nothing more depressing than an optimist, Morrissey’s our man.
