As many of you already know, actor Leonard Nimoy passed away yesterday at the age of 83. According to an online article by the New York Times Nimoy’s death was caused by “end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease” attributed, by Nimoy himself, to years of smoking cigarettes. All (well, both) of us at Atomic Moo are Star Trek fans, and the TV show, and movies, have been a big part of our lives. So, for today’s Morning Moo I’m going to post some Nimoy related items you can see below.
We hope you enjoy the videos.

Good Evening El Moochadores! I’m currently in the process of finishing another Atomic Moocast, but until then I thought I would share something I found over at Geek Tyrant with you all.
Okay, so I’m very excited to see new Hobbit film that’s just about to hit theaters. Hell, I’m even a big Star Trek fan and I’m looking forward to the new movie next summer, but I don’t think it’s right when those two worlds collide. Check out the video below and you’ll see what I mean. This ain’t chocolate and peanut butter folks. It’s… just weird. I don’t know, decide for yourselves but let us know what you think about Leonard Nimoy and The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins. Oww.
Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday… or just in general lately. It’s kind of tough to find time for all this when you’re trying to keep a roof over your head. Sunday is the day I use to clean my place up, and to make sure I have clean underwear for the rest of the week (boxer… yes, I knew you were wanting to know…). So that took, up all of my morning, and the rest of the day I spent trying to clean up all of my vector illustrations for microstock, so I can get them on to other stock agencies (I recently went non-exclusive on iStockPhoto.com), and hopefully make more money. The problem is I have over 450 illustrations to go through, and I’ve only made it through a 100. So I still have a lot of work cut out for me.
As for Trog… he says he was working on the Moocast all day yesterday, and that he wanted to get it edited and finished by last night (probably won’t happen until tonight though), but I swear I could hear a lot of snoring and the Game of Thrones theme song coming from behind his door. So… yeah.
Anyhow, here are somethings I came across this morning of interest. A couple things from Etsy.com that are really neat. I haven’t been to that site in awhile… ’cause you know, I’m broke.
Here’s something I came across this morning on my reader (via Boingboing.net). It’s a student project made by Ray Glasser, for a class at Ohio State University back in 1971. Here’s a quick description he gives about it on Youtube:
This video was a final exam in a TV production class that I took at Ohio State back in the spring of 1971. Even as a lad of 21, I always had to have everything preserved!! I had this taped on 1″ open-reel videotape, then transferred it to U-Matic and then to Beta. (I got an A-.)
It’s bad, but in a fun good way. It doesn’t make you cringe like the Donny and Marie Star Wars Special did. It is really neat to see Trek fan creative stuff from way back. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
I’ve got an anger problem. I can admit it and up until now it’s been tough to manage. Usually when upset all I’ve done was to drink whiskey until the anger builds into a blinding white light of rage, or pass out. But those days are behind me now. Now I’ve got an instructional video on how to manage my anger that seems to really connect with me. Thanks to the good people over at neatorama.com for first bringing this YouTube video to my attention and mental health. Originally made by YouTube submitter OneMinuteGlactica this informative anger management film uses a popular Volcan and star ship captain to demonstrate proper behavior control. I’m feeling better already.
