FArFri: Classic TOS Portraits (Part I: Sulu and Uhura) by Jason Cheeseman Mayer

For this (and next) week’s fan art, I’ve found some wonderfully rich portraits of the TOS cast by artist Jason Cheeseman Mayer (jason cm) on DeviantArt. This week we have Sulu and Uhura.  I love the poses he chose and how beautiful he  makes the eyes.  More next week!sulu03med_by_jasoncm-d81fdcx

#59 The Paradise Syndrome

#59 The Paradise Syndrome

As I finished this, I realized I had subconsciously made a couple of pyramids; or more accurately, teepees.  The three Kirks here form a triangle, and Earth Mother Miramanee forms a loving triangle around her beloved Kirok.  :-)

Of course the great triangular obelisk lurks in the background; that must have cost a pretty penny for a big prop that would only be used once!

I think Sabina Scharf was…

It’s a rainy Wednesday.  I need some Simon and Garfunkel…

#58 Elaan of Troyius

My latest poster!  I loved France Nuyen as Elaan — and thought it would be good to show the story from her point of view.  ( Gotta love that wig!)

I’m always happy to find candid stills of TOS production!  Here’s some gems from all three seasons.   Love the lollipop (it was hot on those sets!)

FArFri: The Woes of Kirk-in-Lester by Berende

This is so funny, by artist Berende, who’s done a whole series of Trek episodes! I’ll post more soon!

Wideo Wednesday – Trek Bloopers and Silliness

Here’s a nice compilation of bloopers and fun moments from the original series:

#57 Spectre of the Gun

#57 Spectre of the Gun

In a most surreal episode, Kirk and Co. find themselves as the Clanton Gang at the O.K. Corral.  A Wanted poster seemed most appropriate here! Get a load of Kirk’s’ hair’! A fairly good episode for season 3, although I found the end a tad contrived. At least in let Scotty and Chekov into the action.

My Weekly Spock: Nimoy as Freddy in Bonanza “The Ape”

My Weekly Spock: Nimoy as Freddy in Bonanza “The Ape”

Leonard appeared in this 1960 episode of the classic Western Bonanza as a sleazy bartender who makes fun of Arte, the Cartwrights dim-witted, but incredibly big and strong ranch hand.

Nimoy’s scenes are few, but he adds t another in a line of ‘heavies’ to his resume.  At least he’s a sharp dresser!

You can see the whole episode here.  :-)

Ah Gary Seven! One of the few characters who could equal Spock’s coolness in the original series.

If you haven’t seen this, it’s pretty neat! Different dialogue for the opening.  Taken from a 16mm print!

My Weekly Spock: Rare Color Make Up Pics

My Weekly Spock Color Make Up Pics

Turning into Spock isn’t easy!   Here’s some rare color stills of Leonard during and after makeup.  In the regular lighting, you can see how thick the pancake was.  Spock should have dressed in a button down shirt all the time :-)

The shirt he’s wearing is his own, but very similar to the one he wore in The City on the Edge of Forever.
