Fascinating.....

I just love Leanoard Nimoy.

My oldest brother, Dennis, was a big fan of Star Trek, right from the first time the USS Enterprise boldly went where nobody has gone before on our tv set in 1966.
Dennis likened himself to Mr. Spock.
He even began to style his hair like Spock's and started talking like him.
Here is Dennis with his prized hi-fi stereo he built looking all "Spockish"......


Dennis had a couple of Leonard Nimoy's record albums that he cut.
Yes, Mr. Nimoy fancied himself a singer and poet.
I'm sorry to do this to you, but play the clip below at personal risk to your hearing.....



And who can forget, really! I WANT to forget!!, this tune he performed on the variety show called Malibu University that aired the Summer of 1967....




Is it any wonder this series didn't make it past 7 episodes?

Here's a Bruno Mars hit music video he appeared  in last year.......



But here is the latest commercial for Audi pitting the Spocks(old and new) against each other.
Let's just say it's a BIG improvement over the Bilbo Baggins song.....
My brother Dennis would have liked this one.
 


Live long and Prosper,

Sluggy

  4. I remembered that he fancied himself a singer. As we say in our house, "well darling, you go right on believing that if it comforts you." Great post! I live the Hobbit song and had never heard it before. :-)
