 Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015

It is with a heavy, heavy heart that I write this post and say goodbye to an old friend, someone my family spoke of as fondly as if he’d been an uncle rather than a film and television star that we’d never met. I had the opportunity, about five years ago, to attend  a screening of Star Trek: The Voyage Home at Paramount Studios and to hear Mr. Nimoy speak of his work in person. It was the fulfilment of a childhood dream, and the beginning of my quest to pursue my passions the way Mr. Nimoy had.

So, thank you, Leonard Nimoy, for making us smile.

Thank you for your wisdom, your compassion, and your generosity.

Thank you for your artistry and your poetry.

Thank you for occasionally creeping us out.

Above all, thank you for being our friend.

You have inspired generations. We…

We’ve all been there: that moment watching the theater previews when you realize they are releasing a remake.

Most of the time, I look like ^this^ when remakes come out. I have often been called a purist old-fashioned for preferring the original versions of films. Well, can you blame me when atrocities like the 2001 Planet of the Apes or the 1997 That Darn Cat tarnish our screens?

If you think I’m being harsh, watch the originals. If you still disagree…

Remakes have been around since films began. Sometimes they don’t stop. There are so many versions of A Christmas CarolRomeo and Juliet, and Robin Hood that I’m loathe to list them here. Occasionally, some remakes are on par with their originals, like The Parent Trap (1961, 1998). But even I must admit that there are times when remakes are simply better…

We all had that hobby in some time in our lives that we still secretly regret that we quitted, and if not everyone, then at least most of us. It is like those failed relationships that we still regret that we let them get ruined so easily and deep inside we wonder what would have happened if we had tried. 

Well, for me that hobby is playing the guitar! I remember when I was 14 years old and took my first lessons on the electric guitar how devoted I was. For the next 2 years I didn’t like to do anything else but playing the guitar. Unfortunately, I’m not that type of girl that would stick to something for long, even if it is what she is meant to do. – I know this is weird but I’m weird too, so it’s ok- . When I had almost quitted playing the guitar, I believed that I would return to that after some time, but I didn’t. 

Though, it didn’t mean that it was the end. During the spring semester of my first year in college, I met a guy in my English class named George, that he was a Music major and a very good guitarist. Now he is one of my best friends and he is the main reason that I started doing again what I once loved very much. Ok, I admit it, I couldn’t stand seeing a close friend playing the guitar like this and not desperately wanting to do it again!! 

And here we are now! I decided to make a blog, with the help and encouragement of my friend George, about what I like to talk and share it with you. Actually, what we both like to talk and do in our free time -which means all the time.-
