Link’n’Blog – 8.7.2020 | Lucy Saved Star Trek

Related Content from And There Came A Day



I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as fun or thought provoking as I have.

This week was Lucille Ball’s birthday. The incredibly talented comedian, actor and Hollywood mogul is best remembered for her amazing work during television’s early day on I Love Lucy and, later, The Lucy Show. What is not as widely recogized about her is that, without Lucy, there would be no Star Trek.

That’s true… and fascinating!

Enjoy THIS ARTICLE from startrek.com on the history of Lucy and Star Trek!

I LOVE LUCY, (from left): Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, 1951-57.

Leonard Nimoy passed away five years ago this week. The best thing I saw on the internet was the pictorial essay in the Waco Tribune Herald which you can read HERE.

Live Long. And Prosper.

Valentine’s Day is today and I am lucky enough to have a Valentine (I’m looking at you Cinnamon Girl).

But this story about a man who received over 70,000 love letters this year really got to me!

It’s worth your time!

It is hard for me to believe that Sesame Street is now only available to families on HBO. When I was a child, it was a staple in our house every day. What I didn’t know then was how much music I was encountering when watching the show.

The New York Times has a terrific retrospective about this topic which you can read HERE.

Are you an Aaron Sorkin fan? Have you ever wondered watching a Sorkin television show or movie if you have heard something in his characters’ dialogue somewhere else? Do you worry he might be stealing?

He is.
