This hurts my soul

Monday, March 23, 2009



I found this by accident on a site that listed the top 10 celebrity song careers that should not have happened. Surprisingly, Mr. Nimoy was only number 3. If that video isn't bad enough, check out the NAMBLAish album cover:

I am now a more bitter, jaded person because of that video.

Didn't the touch of Leonard Nimoy melt peoples' brains or something?

Bob 8:42 AM  

"Didn't the touch of Leonard Nimoy melt peoples' brains or something?"

Oh Smitty, don't act like you don't know. You are enough of a geek to know that Mr. Spock had the ability to mind meld with others, not melt their brains.

Andy 8:42 AM  

I couldn't get past the 24 second mark. And that is 24 second of my life that I will never get back. Thanks, Steve!

B Mac 9:12 AM  

Everyone in the room is now dumber for having heard him sing. I award you no point... and may God have mercy on your soul.

Smitty 10:30 AM  

You know, B Mac, I feel the same way about the movie you stole that quote from.

B Mac 1:49 PM  

I'm glad someone picked up on the quote.

Seriously... The fact that this record exists means that someone sat Spock down and said, "Leonard, you have the voice of an angel. You must sing."

steves 3:39 PM  

And not just once. Leonard released 5 or 6 albums that were fairly well received. Remember that next time someone tries to tell you the 60's was the best era for music.

Joel 5:12 PM  

That whole production was pretty low budget, which begs the question: does Paramount know that they subsidized this atrocity by furnishing the prosthetic ears Mr. Spock's "hobbit harem" was sporting? You just KNOW he lifted those from the FX guys on set and smuggled them to his video shoot. I can imagine the conversation now:

Producer: "we need the chics to look more 'hobbity'"

Director: "Ya, they need like, I dunno, Hobbit suits or something."

Producer: "Do you have any idea what that would cost?! We've already spent forty bucks renting the clearing behind my uncle's place..."

Director: "What about just glueing some ears on them?"

Leonard Nimoy: "Say no more... I've got it taken care of."

B Mac 7:50 PM  

Remember that next time someone tries to tell you the 60's was the best era for music.

Acid. 'Nuff said.

Smitty 7:51 AM  

Joel's "Bilbo Nimoy: A One Act Play" was brilliant. Best line: We've already spent forty bucks renting the clearing behind my uncle's place...

I saw a one-man play that Nimoy put on called (I think) Vincent and Theo. He played the role of Theo Van Gogh, reading horribly tortured letters from his brother Vincent and fretting about what they meant and said. It was decent. Nothing Earth-shattering, but a good concept and decently pulled-off. I think he wrote it, if I remember correctly.
