The final beam-up.

But Spock has been there before - and returned.

Not many of the original cast left now. Bones and Scottie are gone. Its only really the ones who were still kids in 'The Cage' who are still around, like Chekov and Sulu.

Ron Glass RIP

He was 71 and a lot of fun. I remember watching Firefly when it aired all those years ago and loved Ron Glass in it, enjoyed him in pretty much everything else he's done. I only found out today.

The British Comedian passed at the age of 89 on the 18th of August 2017. Sad but he had a good life that included marrying the 1975 Miss World who was 30 years his junior. Lucky fella.

Sad new's, more so when it's someone who's had an influence on those that in turn influence others. I find it amazing how music affects us throughout our live, Songs I would hear and hate as a child now have me foot tapping & enjoying them like they're old buddies I haven't heard from in years.

A deep sadness descends upon the world. One of the greats has left the stage.

It would be appropriate for the light from an exploding Betelgeuse to reach us about now - a fitting tribute.

One of the best AC/DC tribute bands visits my 'local' a couple of times a year - another fitting tribute (they're pretty good and always sell out).

R.I.P. Charles Manson

Charles Manson dies at the age of 83:

http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-charles-manson-health-20171119-htmlstory.html

(no, I have never shared his views/opinions, nor found anything remotely interesting in the family-murders; I was interested in Charles Manson the singer/songwriter, since I found his particular music/lyrics to perfectly represent the twisted nature of the man himself and by extension Human nature, at its rawest)

Robert Forster, an Oscar nominee who starred in "Jackie Brown," "The Descendents," "Mullholland Drive" and a slew of others, passed away after battling brain cancer. He was 78. The decorated actor died the same day that "El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie" was released on Netflix. It was his final film.

When I was young I enjoyed Tolkien's work a lot, I've probably have read Lord of the Rings ten times.

As for the movies (or almost any movie based on any novel), like Christopher Tolkien said there's only one solution: to turn your head away.

thank you - I have read Lord of the Rings... 'a few times', but I have always felt more passionate about the rest of his works (I got myself the Harper Collins "The Complete History of Middle-Earth" a few years ago, since I have so many 'various collections', that I figured it was about time; I highly, strongly recommend reading The Silmarillion, along with "Unfinished Tales" (if nothing else), if one wishes to 'dip your toes' into the vast mythology that is Middle-Earth... I mean, nothing against "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings", but the first and second age are where the truly *epic* stories are told

also, since I first read his biography (by Humphrey Carpenter) back in the early 90's (just as I had finished reading the trilogy, along with The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and a few other works), I developed a profound fascination for not only his works, but for Tolkien as a person - not necessarily 'idolized' him, so much as I was impressed, on so many levels

for anyone interested in the Harper Collins collection, it can be... 'a bit expensive', but worth every penny (IMO)

https://www.harpercollins.co.uk/9780008259846/the-complete-history-of-middle-earth/

I'll be certain to save the interview with Christopher unto my HDD, since I find that fascinating also - thank you for the new linkage

I think I read Silmarillion two or three times as well, and also the Hobbit of course. Can't remember any other Tolkien stories at the moment, maybe they were not published back then.

I recall the Silmarillion stories were much larger in scope, dealing with larger timespans and events, but as a consequence also a little less detailed, could that be correct?

yes, indeed The Silmarillion was more of an epic, which J.R.R. himself never managed to finish, as such Christopher spent basically his entire life trying to compile all the various texts which his father had written - The Silmarillion being what J.R.R. himself wanted to publish initially, but due to the publisher claiming that people (basically) "wanted more Hobbits", he (J.R.R.) kept working on the trilogy, rather than managing to finish his other works

the amount of work Christopher managed to compile is simply astounding and while not as coherent as the Lord of the Rings , it nonetheless it contains some of the most epic adventures written within our lifetime (IMO)
