It was a sad weekend for nerds the world over who learned on Friday (or in the case of Australians, woke up to the news on Saturday) that Leonard Nimoy had passed away. For anyone who has been living under a rock for the past fifty years, Leonard Nimoy played Science Officer Mr Spock in Star Trek, both the TV shows and several of the movies (he even had a cameo in the JJ Abrams reboot in 2011). He was an actor, director, photographer, poet, and teacher, but he’ll always be known as the logical pointy-eared half-human, half-Vulcan.
In honour of Mr Nimoy, I have this fabulous little song that he recorded in 1967. It’s actually incredibly cringe-worthy, but glorious once you get past that. 😛
