Leonard Nimoy Ponders the Rumors Appearing in the Next ST Movie
Trek Movie is doing a backward roll today about reporting Mr. Nimoy’s involvement:
On April 30, that sounded a bit different:
TrekMovie sources have confirmed that Nimoy indeed is back as Spock Prime and he has already completed his work for the film.
We’ll see. Usually Trek Movie has been well informed. Maybe it’s all a ploy by Abrams to give us something to talk about while we wait for the movie to come out ;) Meanwhile, here's a bit of an update by Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty, commented on by Mr. Nimoy.
A conversation between actor and Star Trek fan Ben Stiller and Leonard Nimoy, sparked by someone tweeting Stiller about a role in his next movie…
As Mr. Nimoy twittered on March 31st
The "About Us" statement on the website details what's in store for us and what to look forward to
Since its launch in 2010 as a small shop on Etsy.com known as “Secret Selves,” ShopLLAP has grown to become an online store carrying products relating to Leonard Nimoy and his role as Spock in Star Trek: the Original Series.
Our mission is to make available authentic and unique memorabilia relating to Leonard Nimoy, Spock, and Star Trek. Some of our products are from Mr. Nimoy's personal collection as well.
Please let there be many photos of that. And I'd be on overload if Benedict Cumberbatch would be there, too.
Because of problems with the publisher of his first book of photography, Shekhina, Mr. Nimoy asks for help from his followers. Incidentally, I tried to order a copy at the beginning of November from Amazon. They didn't have it in stock, so I choose to be notified when the book would be available again. About a week later I was notified that they won't be able to deliver and my order was cancelled.
Promised Acting Appearances?
One can at least dream.

Thankfully for us fans the path to Mr. Nimoy's retirement is still paved with upcoming appearances.
Mr. Nimoy is writing poetry again and has created a domain for that purpose. Read Irish Eyes at www.leonardnimoypoetry.com.
Mr. Nimoy twittered a link to this article on Screened "Mr. Spock, Space Wizard. An exploration of how the concept of the wizard translates into science fiction television and films with your friend Mr. Spock from Star Trek."
YouTube not only gave new life to In Search Of... which Mr. Nimoy hosted, but also to his singing career and it seems he's getting a kick out of it, tweeting the link to a video created with Go!Animate to his rendition of The Mayor of Ma's Cafe.
On November 15th 2010 Mr. Nimoy had us guessing what this cryptic message might mean.
(Thank you so much, Grace, for the info. If poetry would vanish from the face of the Earth the next day, I wouldn't have noticed a decade later without anyone telling me...)
Good news, Mr. Nimoy is out of the hospital and letting folks know on twitter that he's already making plans. (October 2010)
Space Shuttle Crew "Amok Time" Wake-Up Call
As Trek Movie reports,
Prior to the launch NASA held a vote for some of the songs/music the crew would greet the new work day with. Original compositions were welcome and 1,350 entries in total were received. 40 preliminary finalists were chosen and presented for public vote. The two pieces that got the most votes and will be played are

722,662 votes. Listen live on March 8 at 2:23 a.m.
671,134 votes. Listen live on March 7 at 2:23 a.m.
By retweeting the information Mr. Nimoy also helped with promoting NASA's "Space Rock" contest.
Mr. Nimoy tweeted a picture of himself cutting his grandson's hair, saying "It runs in the family. My dad was a barber." (August 2010)
More pictures from his career in film, television and on stage can be found at Twitpic
It's Zachary Quinto's birthday and he's celebrating it with a very special friend, as Trek Movie reports (June 2010):
Though Leonard Nimoy is not going to return for the next Star Trek film, it seems he's found something to admire about it...
In case someone might still doubt TheRealNimoy is the real Nimoy, here is a pic he posted of himself "tweeting" (April 28, 2010). He also shared a photo of his father at work, cutting hair, and one of him at the Calgary Comic Con, commenting to William Shatner in in another post:
Earlier he wrote:
This Global news report about Mr. Nimoy visiting Vulcan also picked up on the story of the Shatner for Governor General story, thwarting hopes by relaying that while Mr. Shatner felt flattered he's not interested in the job.
Looks like Mr. Nimoy makes good use of his Twitter account already by promoting the sale of "Secret Selves" T-shirts by offering personalized autographs to the first ten shoppers, pointing to where to find an explanation for the theme, giving updates on his schedule, Fringe, and communicating with William Shatner and Zachary Quinto. (April 2010)

As TrekMovie reports Mr. Nimoy is now "the latest Star Trek celebrity to join Twitter, giving fans a new way to keep in touch. And Nimoy is already giving Fringe updates and Twitter-bantering with William Shatner and Zachary Quinto." (April 2010)
