And I know the majority of my fellow TCers are... enjoy!


Shatner Reads Palin Farewell Speech!


message 2: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Wow. I wonder if she likes it.

I love how he almost looks like he's going to laugh through the whole thing. Thanks, Sally...


message 3: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I want Shatner to read the annual report I'm writing this week.

I love Conan:

"It suddenly dawned on me...It was a poem! It was always meant to be a poem!"


message 5: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) There's another one. I'm headed out the door.


message 6: by Lori (new)

Lori Hahahaha! Thanks Sally.


message 7: by Usako (new)

Usako (bbmeltdown) Hmmm. Naw. I still want Nimoy on my political campaign tour. He did wonders for Bilbo!

Translation, please? Anybody? Is this English or some hybrid pseudo-literary jargon?


message 9: by Usako (last edited Jul 28, 2009 09:40AM) (new)

Usako (bbmeltdown) Leonard Nimoy (Spock) sang a song supporting Bilbo Baggins. If my memory is correct, the go-go girls are wearing pins that say "Vote for Bilbo."

message 10: by Usako (new)

Usako (bbmeltdown) I forget that not everyone is a Tolkienite. I've hung out with plenty so I have a treasure trove of wacky links like the one above. *snickers*

It is a CATCHY tune!

Still no idea.


message 12: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments totally cool how he took something that everyone mocked and mimicked (his acting cadence from Star Trek) and laughed along with us and made a fortune doing it. he embraced the overacting thespian we giggled at and instead of pouting he owned it


message 13: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I'm pretty sure the Bilbo Baggins Nimoy song came up in the Star Trek/Star Wars thread a while back. Jackie? Didn't you post it? Or at least scoff at it?


message 14: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Which "he" Kevin?


message 15: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Shatner, Larry. Shatner.


message 16: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Oh. It wasn't clear. Nimoy was stuck in the middle.


message 17: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments It was a good question, Larry. I was wondering the same thing myself.


message 18: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
I glossed Nimoy. The subject of the thread is the beautiful poetry of ex-govenor of "that rugged up north, so far"


message 19: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) It's a ruggedly lovely poem, too.


message 20: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments sorry, i erroneously assumed that all would understand i was talking about shatner. do we laugh at nimoy too?


message 21: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Is that the royal 'we', Kevin?


message 22: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) We don't.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments We laugh WITH Shatner, not at him.
And we do not laugh at Nimoy, but must sometimes run screaming from his musical efforts.


message 24: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Shatner should do just about every speech every politician needs to make.


message 25: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments yes, the royal we. whatever that means. personally, i want to see Worf get to read nursery rhymes


message 26: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Again, I'm lost.




*writhes*


Why is it so hard for me today? Why?

*weeps, head on desk*


message 27: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) There, there. *pats Sally on the head*

Lori I completely understood Kevin's referral, because only The Shat made a career of making fun of himself like that. And I agree, it's great he has a sense of humor about it.

It's bad if I understand what's going on and Sally doesn't! I think it's because I'm a trekkster?

I was also pretty impressed with how how Shatner enunciated that Palin pome, haha! Shakespearean!


message 30: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
The thing about Star Trek is that it's about 45 years of popular culture references, going back to what, 1965? I could never catch up and know what you all are talking about. It's hard enough to catch Felicity or Law & Order SUV references.


message 31: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod



message 32: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments There are Felicity references?

I guess there was the whole "she cut her hair" thing...

Law and Order is on some channel of the other 24 hours a day. I'm convinced.

Scrubs, too.


message 33: by Lori (last edited Jul 28, 2009 12:17PM) (new)

Lori Haha, yeah, it it's not spelled out I'm completely in the dark with any references EXCEPT Star Trek.

I supposed I'd catch onto ones from Get Smart though. None of those around though.

It's like TV stopped for me after my childhood.

But oh! I do know of any references to It was all a dream, ie Bobby Ewing. Again, I'm dating myself pathetically. :D


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments There are always Star WARS references, instead. Everyone gets those, right?

"Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."

"I feel a great disturbance in the Force."

"These aren't the droids you're looking for."

"I am your father, Luke."

"Let the wookie win."

etc., etc....


message 35: by Lori (new)

Lori Oh thank goodness. Yes, I would get Star Wars stuff.


message 36: by Matt (new)

Matt | 819 comments You're not old yet, Lori! I'll bet you know some sweet frakkin' BSG references.


message 37: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments I....must....try......tounderstand

[while wearing gold shirt and black pants with shiny ankle high boots and talking to Bones:]


message 38: by Lori (new)

Lori Frak yea!


message 39: by Matt (new)

Matt | 819 comments DAMMIT KEVIN I'm a tadpole not a...uh...nevermind.


message 40: by Lori (new)

Lori Heh. Well I suppose with the latest incarnation of Star Trek, alot of those quotes will become massively recognizable.

I'm suddenly imagining people who saw the latest movie yet had no idea of the history behind some of those lines. Is it possible?


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I suppose it is - but they must have some interest in Star Trek, or why would they go see the movie?


message 42: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments because people are stupid lemmings


message 43: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments man, that made me laugh and i said it LOLOLOLOL


message 44: by [deleted user] (new)

Is there a smart lemming Kevin?



message 45: by Lori (new)

Lori Well damn, the link that started all this is no longer available, NBC took it off. Down with The Man!


message 46: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments the one on the edge of the cliff looking over


message 47: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
I think we can safely say that all threads eventually go to: poop, cheese, weather, star trek/wars, "that's what she said" and the ficus.


message 49: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments right sally. we are who we are


message 50: by Matt (new)

Matt | 819 comments Jackie: My wife went to see it because I badgered her to do so:). She really liked it, which I thought said something about the strength of that film to be able to appeal to someone who knew nothing about Star Trek.
