And Now, A Musical Interlude

Thursday, September 2, 2010

John and I are about to hit the road for Dragon*Con here in a few minutes, but first, let's all take a little moment with Kirk. And his mountain.





I think this is going to be our road trip's theme song.

Oh, and thank you, whoever it was among you who reminded me of this song in the comments recently. I'll be thinking of you during hour #7 of our drive while I'm singing, "Captain Kirk is climbing the mountain why is he climbing the AAAUUUGGHHH!!!"


And for the rest of you: stay tuned for Dragon*Con goodness! (Wheee!)

  3. Oh, that was the song of the Con all last year when Shatner was here!

    We also have video of my husband, who cosplays as Jack Sparrow, in front of Everest at WDW Animal Kingdom saying "Captain Jack is climbing the mountain, why is he climbing the mountain?"

    Because we are dorks. Big ol' Disney loving, DragonCon going dorks.

    And now that song is stuck in MY head.

  5. I have never seen that before, and now I can't get it out of my head. Now somebody needs to make a mix of that song and the "Double Rainbow" autotune to come up with the ultimate ear worm. LOL

  16. If you have the opportunity and haven't already done so, check out Leanard Nimoy's Ballad of Bilbo Baggins on Youtube. My husband once put it on a mixed CD of "relaxing" music for me. He thought it would be cute.

  17. It could be worse! Leonard Nimoy's "The Ballard of Bilbo Baggins" perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  19. That was excellent!!!!
    =D
    Have fun at Dragon Con.

  20. When you hit hour #7 and the mountain is driving you insane, just think of this:

    It's a world of laughter, a world or tears.
    Its a world of hopes, its a world of fear.

    And so on.......

  21. Have a great trip! I can't wait to see the pics! You've turned me on to both Steampunk and the "Cons." I'm working on my SP home decor and costumes, but time just won't allow me to get to Dragon Con or anything like it for quite awhile. So this fellow Floridian shall live vicariously through you.

  22. I just laughed hysterically. My hubby is gonna die-he LOVES Star Trek (TNG is his fav, though). Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, my...I shouldn't have watched that at work. I'm crying...thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Heh, I work at the company who made the Star Trek mmo, and videos like this make regular tours around here.

    For some reason I love that "song" and video. Also amusing is Tik Tok with Spock and Kirk. Or NIN's Closer with Spock and Kirk. (Disturbing.)

  25. OMG that is fricking AWESOME-SAUCE! I'm so going to torture all my friends with it now! Totally awesome-sauce!

    ReplyDelete
  26. heh The strangest thing about the hobbit video is everyone has Spock ears except for Spock!

  27. I'd never seen that before! Thank you so much for sharing! That was hilarious!

    WV: sporea - the lesser known Star Trek universe race of people who live a parasitic life as spores upon the humanoids who co-habitate their world . . . together they climb mountains. Why? Because they are in love.

  28. that was great! Well, great as in... ok just great :) Darnit if I won't have that little refrain stuck in my head now!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is amazing! I watched it about a billion times. I love it! Thanks for making my life better and happier today by sharing this.

  30. Now I have a ridiculous mix of "Captain Kirk is climbling the mountain..." and "They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard!" stuck in my head. o.O

    ReplyDelete
  31. that is hilarious... but whoever was evil enough to suggest "it's a small world"; that was sick and evil and wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am obsessed with this video now. Thank you. ;)

  33. I found some Crafty-ish Paintings today that I think you'll like. Also, just wanted to brag that my husband is at D*C for work (Lucky !@&%*) and just did a one on one interiew with STAN EFFIN LEE in his suite! AND!! AND!! on the way down to the lobby while in the elevator with "Stan" (as he put it, *eye roll*) who steps on at the next stop? None other than Marina Sirtis aka Counselour Troi herself! Ugh, I'm a jealous fit! lol he said that both of them couldn't have been nicer.

  34. This is yet another reason that I love your sites so much, Jen.

    I'd seen this before, but not in a while. Definitely made my 3 o'clock work hour!

  35. I had this song stuck in my head ALLLL day long. Thanks. Really, thank you. Of course people were probably wondering why I was snickering to myself all day too. :)

  36. I watched this first thing this morning and I STILL can't get it out of my head. Thanks Jen.

  37. This is my favorite mix ever! I even put it on iTunes. I'll start singing it randomly whenever it pops into my head. My boyfriend doesn't think it's as great as it really is though.

    ReplyDelete
  38. oh this was a bad choice immediately before bed. Because Im in love.
