Roddenberry, Scotty, McCoy, and now Spock.  The ranks are thinning, but the future they helped inspire lives on.

Leonard Nimoy, the actor, author and director best known for his portrayal of the ultra-logical character Spock in the TV series Star Trek, has died at the age of 83.

Worked on a Priceline commercial with Shatner (who played a Biker with a Duck Dynasty beard)... The guy is a true gentleman and joked around with the Crew.  When he "flubbed" his lines once, he said, "Damn it, where's Spock when you need him?" The crew erupted in laughter.  LLAP!

A webcomic - "Trapped in the Tower of the Brain Thieves - Part 1 The Toaster with Two Brains".  The whole site, the other stories on it and illustrations have a wonderful Decopunk retro-futuristic feel.

I have been a huge fan of Bradley W. Schenck since his work was used in an early CD-ROM adventure game called The Labyrinth of Time. Twenty years later he continues to amaze me.

Wilderstein House and Estate.  An historic site in New York state.  The main house seems in good repair, but the Carriage House needs work.

The BBC series Restoration Home.  An excellent series, but some of the houses are just plain scarey.  You can find the episodes on YouTube

The US police and justice system seem to be composed of many scarey people, and police of any nationality are becoming increasingly scarey people
Eighteen months ago, a Virginia man was shot by police while standing at his suburban front door with his hands raised. The facts are clear and barely in dispute, but no one seems to want to do anything about it, Neil Macdonald reports.

Frightening. Truly frightening.

OMG!! I spend a significant portion of my time muting vaccine/anti-vaccine posts right now from the Google "what's hot" feed.  I've just about reached the point of completely turning off "what's hot".  Sigh.

A Sleek, Clean, Dieselpunk Future. 
These ads made for the Detroit-based Bohn Aluminum and Brass Corporation were largely dreamed up by legendary illustrator Arthur Radebaugh during the 1940s. Radebaugh's utopian visions and Bohn's desire to appear as a forward-looking company combine for a slick retrofuturistic view of transportation.

I would hate to be the one having to keep all that glass clean in Bohn's future though.

I'm not surprised that this has happened.  It is only a matter of time before control system hacks happen that cause major loss of life
The attack marks only the second confirmed incident in which a wholly digital hack created physical destruction of equipment.
