President Barack Obama: ‘I Loved Spock’

Today Pres. Barack Obama released a statement on the death of Leonard Nimoy.

"Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future.
I loved Spock.
In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for “Live long and prosper.” And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it’s clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today."

Adi Shankar produced Power/Rangers short film gets high marks

I grew up a huge fan of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, apparently so did Hollywood film produced Adi Shankar.
Shankar, along with some of his  friends--notably James VanDerBeek and Katee Sackhoff-- produced an amazing "bootleg" version of the show that dropped on Youtube today.
For Shankar, the "bootleg," which is more a fan film than a bootleg, is just the latest in a line of short films he produces for fun.
For those of us worried about what the upcoming MMPR reboot movie could be, we can only hope that Shankar is somehow involved. While it's extremely unlikely for the movie to go nearly as dark or gritty as this, a fanboy can dream.

Check out the movie below.
