Mr. Spock to the Bridge

  • Too soon?

Need more Nimoy? Beam yourself to the Eureka Theater on Sunday, March 15 from 3-9:30 p.m. for Spock Day ($5). Doors open at 2:30 for Spocktails (yup, they went there) in the lobby and raise a glass and a razor sharp eyebrow to the half-Vulcan legend. At 5 p.m. prepare to go where, well, many of us have gone before: back to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). That's the original Spock and Kirk, for all you kiddies, and it would be illogical not to yell "Khaaaaaan!" when the moment comes. Then at 7 p.m. Leonard Nimoy is back as Spock in the 2009 reboot Star Trek alongside Zachary Quinto as ... um, Spock. It's actually kind of Spocked up.  

But wait, why are you showing up early, two hours before the first movie? Because like a routine scouting mission, anything can happen. Tribbles or Pon farr-mad Vulcans or Romulans or some radical Trekkie splinter group could take over the projection booth and do something awesome. Just be there. You are wondering whether to wear the ears — the answer is yes. And the uniform? If not now, when? But maybe not the red shirt if you want to make it to the sequel.

Leonard Nimoy, Bigfoot Hunter

Posted By on Fri, Feb 27, 2015 at 5:31 PM

“It’s hard to imagine corner of our crowded world where a giant man-like creature could roam free, yet there’s persuasive evidence that Bigfoot is real.”

If you’re feeling nostalgic about Leonard Nimoy, take a look back at his In Search of… episode featuring local legend Bigfoot. Most of it centers on Sasquatch investigators and sightings in Oregon and Washington, but Nimoy also features footage from the Patterson-Gimlin film which was (arguably) filmed in Humboldt County.

On Sunday, July 20, take the night off from trolling the woods in your furry suit and settle in for James "Bobo" Fay's return to our neck of the woods. A very special "Finding Bigfoot" takes the sasquatch hunters to Humboldt in search of giant footprints, shadowy figures and infrared footage. The episode airs at 10 p.m., and who knows? Maybe he shows up in this one.

Miss seeing Marty L'Herault drive the horse and carriage around Old Town? Catch him on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m on the Investigation Discovery Channel. (Wait, do you have that at home? Make arrangements.) L'Herault, who left us to pursue a career in acting last year, will appear in the "Judge, Jury, and Executioner" episode of the series, A Crime to Remember. He plays Judge Chillingworth, and — spoiler alert! — he's the stiff.

Blue Ox Getting a Reality Show?

It's possible. A Los Angeles producer filmed at the Blue Ox Millworks for three days in December, according to owner Eric Hollenbeck, and is set to debut a pilot online in November.

The Sony Pictures-produced show about American craftsmen is being pitched to the Discovery and History channels, according to Hollenbeck.

The pilot -- a short documentary titled The Ox, Yankee Ingenuity Reborn -- will debut online on Veteran's Day, and it's got the hallmarks of silver screen-worthy Oscar bait. Check it out.
