So I feel like an ass for reading twitter and claiming that William Shatner wasn’t saying anything. Turns out he had to leave social media for 24 hours because he couldn’t handle the loss. Here are some of my favorite tweets from yesterday.
In druidic omens: Parts of Europe and Africa were plunged into darkness by a solar eclipse, portending the vernal equinox and beginning of spring.
In music: One Direction’s “the British one,” Zayn Malik, quit the band, leaving a scruffy, angular-jawed hole in our heart. Plus, the twirling, leaping, blistering elegance of ballet.
In things too terrifying to believe: Reports that the co-pilot of the Germanwings flight crashed the plane intentionally.
In movies: A resurgent Divergent, Divergent:Insurgent is emergent in theatres. Plus, Paper Towns: After it was a book but before it becomes a movie, it’s a trailer. And after 30 years, The Breakfast Club enjoyed a boozy brunch.
In fashion: The endless eddy that carries the world’s beautiful people between municipal fashion weeks deposited them in Korea for Seoul Fashion Week.
Now, some of the genuinely great blogs of the week:
Spock’s death was shot over three days, during which no visitors were allowed on set.Spock’s death was to be irrevocable, but Nimoy had such a positive
experience during filming that he asked if he could add a way for Spock
to return in a later film. (x)
Star Trek ll: Wrath of Khan (1982)
Thank you Mr. Nimoy, you inspired us to live among the stars, to live long and to prosper.
In light of recent events I wanted to share this with you. God knows William Shatner isn’t perfect, but I wish people would leave him alone at the moment. I’m sure William being unable to attend his funeral would not be a problem to Leonard so why is it a problem to everybody else? Right now I much prefer honoring Leonard Nimoy’s thoughts and feelings on the man than bashing him for something Leonard wouldn’t have a problem with. LLAP \//
