Folks, drugs make you do terrible, stupid things.

Ah yeah...look at those pouty, sexxxy lips. I grock Spock! I grock!One of the better aspects of the 60’s is that it’s almost impossible for someone famous to convince anyone they weren’t on a hundred kinds of drugs on any given day. I mean, all you have to do is look at some of these people’s work credits to see they were obviously whacked out of their skull. I know the first instinct is to point at Bill Shatner’s body of work in the 60’s, but frankly..he’s The Shat, and thereby untouchable.  Leonard Nimoy on the other hand…

Mr. Nimoy one-upped Shatner’s spoken word version of “Rocketman” on the ‘what the fuck’ scale by recording a tribute to Bilbo Baggins.

If that wasn’t enough, he went and made a gawdamn video for it.

And yah, I know it’s an oldie…I just wanted to post it because it’d tweak ZolarCzakl and he can’t respond due to his travels in the vast Amish wastelands of New York City.

    Love it.

    Alpha, Dav, as you both know, I will overlook a lot of faults if a girl is hot.  But the way these women were dancing in that video… was almost enough to turn me off. wink

    Forget Nimoy, could you imagine being one of those dancers?  How would you put that on your resume?  “I was Hobbit 3 in Leonard Nimoy’s ‘Tribute to Bilbo Baggins’.”

    Judging from the stunning success of the Lord of The Rings movies, I don’t think he was crazy, just way ahead of his time.  Though everyone knows Samwise is the greatest hobbit of all time.

    I thought Samwise was the greatest ‘secretly in love with Frodo but settled for the frumpy bar-wench Hobbit’

  • Shadow Stalker

    You thought that bar-wench hobbit was frumpy?  I thought she was pretty hot.

  • The Good Reverend

    Oh I don’t think there was any “secret” to it.  The end of the third movie was one of the most homoerotic moments I’ve ever seen.

    I just wanted to bump this up. It felt like a Bilbo Baggins kind of day. I only hope the Eagles re-form to cover this song.

  • .alphamonkey.

    Hmph.  My need to ban all mention of the Eagles is overridden by the awesomeness of this video.  You’ve won this time, elkciN!

  • elkciN

    gulp I……win? What do I win? I hope it’s a candy bar! I’m hungry!
