Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Yes, another remembrance.

As a Star Trek fan, I was incredibly sad to hear of the death of Leonard Nimoy. He was such a famous icon for the Star Trek fandom and I know that his loss is deeply felt. Even after the original Star Trek series, he has appeared numerous times in the following seasons and movies. I will miss that connection to the originals.

But I will miss some other things, too.

I'm sure everyone remembers this one?
Leonard Nimoy - The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.
(Which makes this video better, if you are interested: Legendary Frog: One Ring to Rule Them All 2)

Plus, Leonard Nimoy says the line "Pure Energy" in this 80's treasure: Information Society - What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy).

And last, but not least, here is one of my very favorite videos featuring Leonard Nimoy for all of the pure silly nerdy-ness of it: Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: "The Challenge."

It may seem silly, but this is how I will always remember him.

Thanks for the memories and inspiration. Rest in peace.
