The entertainment world lost two icons of pop culture over the course of a single weekend. The first casualty is Mr. Martin Landau. Many know Martin Landau from (of course) his star turn as the character of "Rollin Hand" on the hit TV series: "Mission: Impossible", or perhaps they remember him as "Commander John Koenig" on the TV series: "Space: 1999". Both were great roles and Landau played them to perfection. But Landau did much more than just those two roles in his acting career. He started his working life as a staff cartoonist and illustrator for the New York Daily News at the young age of only 17 years old! Landau was there for seven years. During which, he served as illustrator on Billy Rose's "Pitching Horseshoes" column, as well as doing work for Gus Edson on his famous comic strip  "The Gumps". But Landau really wanted to be an actor. Read more...

This is my last column of the year. As such, I have decided to take a look back, and give one final goodbye to the people that we lost in the preceding twelve months . These are people that entertained us, made us laugh, cry, and made us feel as if we knew them. Some of these people I have written tributes for, and some I did not (time is a huge factor in writing a weekly column). Read more...

Kirk's Post-Pilots Configuration of NCC-1701Since writing for ENR the feature that compares the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 (the protagonal crew of the original Star Trek series) to the DC Universe's Justice League of America, I have been contemplating doing a full-fledged Star Trek-themed column feature for this website, hoping to help increase space for Star Trek-related content out of being a long-time fan of the Star Trek franchise. At first, I thought of waiting until 2016 to make the move as it will be the year of Star Trek's 50th anniversary, but somehow, the day when SPACE: The Imagination Station (also known as "SPACE Channel" or simply "SPACE") aired a Star Trek: The Original Series marathon paying tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy (who played Spock on the show) gave the desire to the make the move now, even as we wait for the release of the upcoming 13th Star Trek movie.

"Of my friend, I can only say this. Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human." 635606378477035481-FNPBrd-03-26-2013-NewsPress-1-A002-2013-03-25-IMG-AP090426037389.jpg-4-1-S73M5EJ3-L200541173-IMG-AP090426037389.jpg-4-1-S73M5EJ3 Those words are from the funeral of Mr. Spock in the movie Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn. Leonard Nimoy played the character of Mr. Spock from1965 (when he appeared in the rejected Star Trek pilot "The Cage") until 1969. He also played the character in eight feature films. Nimoy directed Star Trek 3 " The Search For Spock", and did a credible job (Siskel and Ebert agreed that Nimoy was a much better director than fellow Star Trek alumni William Shatner's , directorial work on Star Trek 5 "The Final Frontier"). TV Guide has even named Mr. Spock as one of the 50 greatest TV characters of all time. The character is universally recognizable. Nimoy earned three Emmy nominations for his work on Star Trek. Nimoy even came up with several of Mr. Spock's affectations himself. For instance, Nimoy originated the "Vulcan salute". Nimoy created this based on his childhood memories of the way that the Jewish Priests used to hold their hand when giving the blessing, "May the Lord bless and keep you and may the Lord cause his countenance to shine upon you. May the Lord be gracious unto you and grant you peace". Read more...

LeonardNimoyTributeWelcome back to the what’s hot and what’s not list for this last week of February 2015. It’s been one weird week on the internet and sadly it has come to an end with the sad news that Leonard Nimoy has passed away. Nimoy was most well-known for playing the Vulcan, Spock, on Star Trek. A multi-talented man who meant a lot to a lot of people. He will truly be missed. So the internet was a mess this week so this is where you can catch up on all of the hot stuff you missed out on while you were debating over the color of a hideous dress and all of the llama drama. What could be more hot than the announcement of Disney reviving DuckTales? Read more...

Leonard-Nimoy-Today, fans of science fiction, pop culture and theater in general have lost a dear friend. Leonard Nimoy, best known for his portrayal as Mr. Spock in the Star Trek TV series and films, has passed away at the age of 83. While we all fell in love with him as the half-human, half Vulcan second-in-command of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Mr. Nimoy had many other artistic pursuits in his life, such as writing, music, photography and directing (not many people are aware he directed 1987's Three Men And A Baby). Acting since the age of 8, Nimoy had a huge body of acting work including classic horror films like Them!, Zombies in the Stratosphere and The Brain Eaters, and appearances on television shows like Dragnet, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Twilight Zone, Perry Mason, Outer Limits, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and more recently in shows like Fringe, Simpsons, Futurama and Big Bang Theory. And let's not forget his return as Spock in the J.J. Abrams reboot of the Star Trek film franchise! Read more...

telltale-games-copyIf you are a gamer, you probably are aware that Telltale Games is taking over the industry with their downloadable point-and-click style episodic video games. After adapting popular franchises such as Walking Dead, Vertigo Comics' Fables, Back To The Future, Monkey Island, Sam & Max and Borderlands ...Telltale has now begun their spin on George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones. The Telltale engine allows for players to immerse themselves in the role of the leading characters in each story and virtually control how the story evolves through their own decisions. Basically, very few players' games will end up EXACTLY the same by the time all is said and done, making every experience unique based on the person playing the game. And your decisions matter even after you go on to play season 2, as long as you keep your save file, that is! Read more...
