I just heard that Leonard Nimoy, Spock of Star Trek fame among other things, had passed away at 83 (NY Times).

I am very, very sad upon hearing this. Spock was the first TV character I remembered as a child, even if I knew no English. Those pointed ears and that firm, noble look, as well as calmness of the character, endeared me to him.

It would be ironic to be sad about Mr Nimoy’s death considering the generally emotionally controlled Vulcan character with which I associate with him as one. But sad I am. Actually, I’m feeling something far worse than sadness could convey, though I will try to control it. This is going to be a long, drawn out, sadness, though, because he is synonymous with Star Trek to me so Star Trek will never be the same again. I will always think of him any time I see, hear or think of Star Trek.

As I struggle for what to write regarding Mr Nimoy’s death, a quote from Kirk in Star Trek II, the Wrath of Khan, that is among my favourite movies, seems appropriate.

“Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.”

Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. Your soul and spirit will live and prosper forever.

There’s never a good day to die… unless you’re Klingon. However, if there were a day for New York Giants football matriarch Ann Mara to pass away, Super Bowl Sunday would be as symbolic as any. She passed away due to complications from a head injury in a fall a few weeks ago (ESPN).

It’s very sad news for the football world on an otherwise big happy day, or more tragic if you dislike the Seahawks and utmostly loathe the Patriots as much as I do.

But here’s to remember a complete class act in Ann and the Giants. Rest in peace, Ann, and soon joy as the Giants will be back at the top again I’m sure.

Yup, Marvel is killing off Deadpool… a character with Dead in his name.

But we all know comic book characters don’t die forever, especially not popular ones. So I’m suggesting he comes back with the same name, just with a space in between. Totally different meaning. Can be totally different character.

And his biggest pet peeve will be “don’t call be Pool, fool!”

Mr. T. style, of course. :)

Funeral is scheduled for April in Deadpool 250.
