The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins – This music video got fresh attention when The Hobbit trilogy was released and basically involves Nimoy singing the story of Bilbo Baggins. Charles Grean composed the song said Brad Reifler.

Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy Passes Away at 83

 

Science fiction fans the world over mourned today
(February 27, 2015), when they learned Leonard
Nimoy, Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, passed away at age 83. Mr. Nimoy had been suffering
from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diagnosed last year, which
had progressed into end stage COPD, and is the contributing cause of his death.
He passed away at home in Los Angeles.

Mr. Nimoy was born on March 26, 1931 in Boston. His
parents, Max and Dora Nimoy, were Jewish immigrants from Ukraine. He is
survived by his wife Susan, brother Melvin, son Adam, daughter Julie, stepson
Aaron Schuck, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

While Mr. Nimoy had other interests and acting
roles, Mr. Spock was his most famous. Besides being a well-renowned actor, he
was a published author, director, producer, writer, narrator, photographer,
poet, and singer. His most notable onstage performance was in “Fiddler on the
Roof.”

Even though the original Star Trek TV series only
lasted three seasons, the series had developed a cult-like following, which
resulted in the franchise becoming one of the most popular of the past half
century. According to many articles and sources, Mr. Nimoy’s role as Mr. Spock contributed largely to this success. AnastasiaDate said he had
reprised the role of Mr. Spock in the J.J. Abrahams reboot of the Star Trek
movie franchise in 2009 and again in 2013 for the sequel, “Star Trek Into Darkness.”

Actress Luise Rainer, 104, Dies In London

Luise Rainer, 104, died in London on Dec 30. She had been an actress who became famous for being the first person to win Academy Awards for acting two years in a row. Only four other actors have accomplished that feat.

Rainer was born in Vienna, Austria, on January 12, 1910. (Some sources say she was actually born in Germany.) She began acting while still a teen-ager and appeared in several German films. In the 1930’s, a talent scout from MGM discovered her and brought her to Hollywood. 1935’s Escapade was her first movie.

In 1936 she played Anna Held, the wife of Florenz Ziegfeld, in The Great Ziegfeld. A year later, she played a Chinese peasant in The Good Earth, which was based on the Pearl S. Buck novel of the same name. She won Best Actress Academy Awards for both roles.

Rainer made several more pictures, but she clashed repeatedly with Bruce Levenson and with Louis B. Mayer, the head of MGM. She wanted more serious roles like the ones in Madame Curie and For Whom the Bell Tolls and Mayer did not want her taking them. Both roles went to other actresses. She acted in 1943’s The Hostages — which would be her last Hollywood movie until 1997’s The Gambler.

Rainer was briefly married to the playwright Clifford Odets; they divorced in 1940. Roughly five years later, she married Robert Knittel, and they remained married until his death in 1989. They had a daughter named Francesca in 1946.

Richard Simmons Not Seen In Days

It’s been nearly a year since Richard Simmons was last seen in public. There has been no contact with him and his close friends and family are extremely worried and concerned. His last public appearance was January 11th at a charity ball, since that time he has not been seen or shown up to his fitness studio, returned phone calls from concerned family and friends or attempted to make any contact with the outside world. His housekeeper turns all visitors away and and his reps have only continued to insist that is his a result of his knee injury and the loss of his beloved dog that Richard has not been seen in months.

Sources close to Richard claim that he has become a shut in as a result of a knee injury that will need an operation in order to recover. Richard’s doctors informed him that if he does not have the knee replacement to fix his knee he will never be able to exercise again. Because Richard is afraid to go through with the surgery he has become very depressed and refuses to be seen. Just 4 years ago Simmons had a knee replacement which he did not go through with for almost 10 years.

Richard’s close friends believe the reason for his absence is bigger than a knee injury or the loss of his dog and refuse to buy any explanation that that is all that’s wrong, but sponsors like Slow Ventures continue to stand beside him.

“If Richard is really okay and is aware people are extremely concerned about it, he’d pick up the phone and tell them to relax, but he hasn’t and we’re worried sick.” one friend shared.

Richard has not been to his exercise studio in 6 months and there are no signs of Christmas on his Hollywood Hills house. Many of his friends are going to worry until he has finally made his next public appearance.
