BjqYzbnCIAAyrWI

Leonard Nimoy turns 83 today!

I grew up watching Star Trek with my mom and my brother. Nimoy has always been one of my many favorite actor/artist, from his photography work to his role as Spock in TOS. I mean, how can you not be a fan of his?

The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins:

Fascinating is a word I use for the unexpected. In this case, I should think “interesting” would suffice.
-Spock in ‘The Squire of Gothos’

Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song - Alternate version with Leonard Nimoy:

I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question.

-Spock, Star Trek: The Original Series, “This Side of Paradise

” I have been – and always shall be – your friend”:

Nowhere am I so desperately needed as among a shipload of illogical humans.

-Spock in “I, Mudd‘”

Happy Birthday, Leonard Nimoy!! LLAP

Concept Art For ‘Star Trek’ Theme Park In Spain

Star Trek Theme Park in Spain (6)

Set your phasers to fun!

Paramount will be building a Star Trek theme park treatment at Spain’s Paramount Park Murica. I’m already planning my trip.

Star Trek Theme Park in Spain (7)

According to StarTrek.com:

The wide-ranging project will incorporate condos and office buildings, hotels, malls, a casino, a convention center, gardens, nightlife and dining areas, an exhibition hall/auditorium and… a theme park divided into several sections.

Plaza Futura will be designed to appeal to Star Trek fans. 3D renderings depict a large futuristic square that will include a Starfleet Spain recruiting center, a 3D simulator ride (which allows guests/recruits to experience adventures in outer space), and a Warp Speed Coaster that will reach exciting heights and speeds and include an underground portion (a wormhole, naturally) and several loops.

Set to open at the end of 2015.

“Make It So”: A Star Trek Parody of Disney’s Frozen “Let It Go”

make-it-so-captain

I adore the movie Frozen and the original version of “Let It Go.” There are countless YouTube videos of fans singing their own version of “Let It Go.” YouTubers Debs & Errol decided to take it up a notch and created this hilarious parody video replacing “Let It Go” with Captain Jean Luc Picard’s famous line “Make It So”. The video also includes scenes from ‘Star Trek: First Contact.’ 

Enjoy the video my fellow Trekkies!

Remembering DeForest Kelley

mccoy1

Today would have been DeForest Kelley’s 94th birthday. Kelley was best known for his role as Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy on Star Trek: The Original Series. Bones will be forever my favorite Star Trek Doctor.

He will never be forgotten. RIP DeForest.

Damn it, Jim! I’m a Doctor not a….

Beautiful tribute to DeForest Kelley by Kayley Fiorino:

Leonard Nimoy Wants To Be Your Honorary Grandfather

Leonard Nimoy tweeted how proud he was of his granddaughter Dani for running his LLAP store. He then offered to become your “honorary”grandfather.

As a Trekkie and a fan of Spock, I have made the logical choice and accepted Leonard Nimoy as my honorary grandpa. :)

LLAP “Live long and prosper”
