#MirthMusicMon – The Greatest Little Hobbit of Them All

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. 😛

Since that is not actually the lasting memory anyone wants to have of Leonard Nimoy, here’s a compilation of Spock at his snarky, I mean, logical, best.

Join us over here for Mirth and Music Monday. Feel free to post your own things, too!
