SORT BY Relevancy
On Friday the entertainment industry lost one of it's most favorite stars. Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83. Join me for this tribute to a Sci Fi Icon. "Of all the souls I've known..his was the most... human." Capt. Kirk before sending Mr. Spocks casket to Genisis. Star Trek II The Wrath of Kahn.
It came as a shock when it was announced that beloved actor and humanitarian, Leonard Nimoy had succumb to his bout with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Nimoy, was best know for his stellar role as Spock, the part Vulcan, part human science officer on Star Trek's tv series, and movie franchise. But for our broadcast, we'd like to discuss and share with our listeners, some of Leonard Nimoy's film work outside of his great character portrayal of Star Trek's Spock. We hope you'll join us on our adventure in uncovering some of the other gems in the movie career of this fine actor.
We lost a legend on Friday. Join as as we share our personal memories of the man known as LEONARD NIMOY.
In 1965, he made his first appearance in the rejected Star Trek pilot The Cage, and went on to play the character of Mr. Spock until 1969, followed by eight feature films and guest slots in the various spin-off series. The character has had a significant cultural impact and garnered Nimoy three Emmy Award nominations; TV Guide named Spock one of the 50 greatest TV characters. After the original Star Trekseries, Nimoy starred in Mission: Impossible for two seasons, hosted the documentary series In Search of...,. More recently, he also had a recurring role in the science fiction series Fringe.
Call in and tell us what you remember.
In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on the life and legacy of Leonard Nimoy who is well known for his portrayal of Spock on the science fiction show Star Trek. He explains how Nimoy incorporated many religious Hebrew rituals into the character, including a blessing in the name of God with his famous"v" hand gesture. Sacerdotus also speaks on the horrific murder of atheist blogger Avijit Roy who was hacked to death for voicing his opinions against Islamic extremism.

Greetings to our stalwart fanbase! Well, one of the bricks from the foundation of the house that nerd built has been removed-actor, Leonard Nimoy passes at 83. For obvious and appropriate reasons we will discuss Mr. Nimoy's career and his placement in the pantheon of American (if not, international) popular culture. Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and Daryll B. for a new episode of The Grindhouse Mashup, courtesy of Afronerd Radio airing this Saturday at 6pm. Additional topics to be disassembled and then reassembled in our metaphysical transporter room are: speculations on what big announcement Robert Downey Jr and Marvel are slated to make in the next few days; our thoughts about the internet NSFW version of the Power Rangers short; after Gotham's grisly episode involving Jada Pinkett Smith's Fish Mooney character, can the character continue in the series and is there a possible transition to the print world?; hat tip to Shadow and Act for highlighting an upcoming African themed animated movie entitled, Bilal starring Lost's Mr. Echo (or the more fearsome Adebisi of Oz) himself, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje; as great and as crucial the movie, Selma may be, Dburt ponders other historical events that are ready for a cinematic "closeup"; more hair politics after the Zendaya-Rancic televised fallout; Monique vs Lee Daniels vs Hollywood and lastly, more on entertainment entrepreneur, Byron Allen's lawsuit against Time Warner cable (incl. Rev Al "black pawn" allegations). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. And in the immortal words of Spock-"once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
