Happy Birthday Leonard Nimoy, here’s Soul Train!

Soul Train

Leonard Nimoy, the man who played Mister Spock, turns 78 today, and he will be forever remembered as the pointy eared intellectual, travelling throught space, relentlessly explaining that he didn’t understand how emotions worked. That, as you can imagine, made his character an incredibly awkward lover – forever questioning your moves, not once initiating a change of angle. A nightmare. Still, we thought the actor should get a gift. After much talk, and an Indian head massage, it boiled down to a toss up between an ashtray that looks like a toad, or a clip of some excellent Soul Train dancing. In the end we got him both. Live long and prosper, Nimoy!
