About his friendship with Leonard Nimoy via The Guardian. Hadley Freeman writes, “It feels rude to ask a 90-year-old if he worries about death, so I ask instead what he wishes he had known at 20 that he knows at 90.”

“Here’s an interesting answer!” he says perkily. “I’m glad I didn’t know because what you know at 90 is: take it easy, nothing matters in the end, what goes up must come down. If I’d known that at 20, I wouldn’t have done anything!”

William Shatner

I need to find my publicity pic with William Shatner. He was in KC for an event I covered in conjunction with a radio interview. I occasionally come across it and think I will remember for sure where it is. Hasn’t happened yet.

Brief encounter – they line you up and run everyone through at a fast clip. He was quite congenial. Then, the moment we were set to pose, he turned to me and asked a question. Click! Perfectly timed profile shot.

Happy Haunting

Happened across this on YouTube. Actor Telly Savalas (Kojak) launches this collection with an absolutely incredible encounter. It starts when he accepts a ride from a stranger. Beyond weird – several twists in this tale. Truly unforgettable.

Description: Based on the old Australian TV series “The Extraordinary.” (1993-1996).
