There are no words to express the loss felt by so many around the world at the passing of actor, artist, and immortal icon Leonard Nimoy on Friday, February 27, 2015 at the age of 83. Universally known as the cooly logical Mr. Spock from STAR TREK, Nimoy made his mark on our culture in countless ways beyond his most memorable role. Join Scott and Arnold for an all-too-brief but heartfelt tribute to the man that lived long and prospered, and in doing so changed all of our lives for the better.
