LLAP'd - Lived Long And Prospered

Man, I had to work on that for a minute.

Aww that's so sad, though he had a good innings, as they say.

I've read Nimoy's explanation of how he suggested the Vulcan salute, but his five minute long version here is wonderful to view on this day.

ETA: found the video outside of WaPo's article:

Just got a chance to watch that. I really liked it.
Came across this one too, which is also pretty good.

Did I ever tell you about that dream I had where I was having some sort of group sex.... And Leonard Nimoy was there... I can't remember now if it was with jinx, or..... I just remember the floor was very shiny grey painted concrete, and there were puddles of water everywhere.

There was no actual sex, but you know. It was pretty weird. Mr Spock, for fux ache.

Leonard Nimoy was an icon. He created a character that actually changed how people looked at emotion versus intellect. Spock is perhaps THE single most manifest Sci Fi character ever created, and he wouldn't have been who he was with Nimoy.

NASA salutes 'Star Trek' icon Leonard Nimoy

Nimoy ... was honored by the agency in an ethereal photo of the bright blue earth captured by NASA astronaut Terry Virts aboard the International Space Station: ... NASA notes that Nimoy's hometown of Boston, Mass., is visible in the photo.

President Obama joined other "Star Trek" fans and several lawmakers Friday mourning the actor's death, saying in a statement that "long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy."

"Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future," Obama said. "I love Spock."

There's a local ice cream shop that's been in town for years, run by second or third generation family, not sure. Back when I was in my early 20s the thing was that we knew spring was here because this ice cream place was open for the season. Well, they keep opening earlier and earlier it seems. I know the guy, Dave, and he's cool, used to have parties where he'd take the slushie machine to his house and have gin slushies. I went by there today and it was open so I had to read the sign. He has one of those plastic letter signs and it runs the gamut of serious to funny. Today it read "Live Long and Prosper. RIP Spock." I thought that was pretty cool, and SO Dave.

The theme this week is bassists. The world lost two thick stringers this week.

Andy Fraser and Mike Porcaro.

You know Andy Fraser for co-writing and playing bass on this:

And Mike Porcaro was the bass player for Toto, playing on such songs as Rosanna and Africa.

When you listen to "All Right Now", consider that Mr. Fraser's outstanding contribution to the song was not playing at all for the first 50 seconds of it. Yes, the bass does not come in AT ALL until the first chorus. And then it changes everything, because suddenly... hey bass! It's a neat trick and shows everybody how important bass is.

Another example of this is AC/DC "You Shook Me All Night Long".

Thank you glatt for this post.

Africa is a song that always makes me a little emotional. I just really like it. RIP Mr P.
