alexcat  posted this and I laughed like a fiend.  So, thought I'd pass on the joy.  Happy Friday.  *beverage warning*

Glad you like.

Oooops! Apparently, I neglected to pay attention to the beverage warning!

Very, very brilliant! (There were a lot of hokey scened in Trek, weren't there?)

Oh yeah. As much as I love the first Star Trek, much of it was just horribly bad. The editing here is priceless.

I had to watch it again!

Thanks for the laughs, Alex. I played it for my daughter and friend last night and they loved it.

I've never seen a single episode of Star Trek in my life, believe it or not, but this is hella funny. Made me want to watch Holy Grail again; I lurrrve that movie (despite its rather anticlimactic ending).

Oh wow, a Star Trek virgin. I didn't know there was such a thing. Well, I'm sure you could watch 'em on youtube or surfthechannel or some place, but as much as I love Star Trek, the first series hasn't aged well and some of it is just bad. *ooh, is that sacrilegious?* I saw Holy Grail again this summer with a bunch of friends. You can always tell a true geek, because they move their lips while watching, because we all have it memorized. Yep, geek.

God, that is a scream! The editing is fantastic. Watching the clips, I shudder (in a fun, self-deprecating manner) to think how very cool I thought the show was when I was a young adolescent sprout. I'd forgotten all about that quasi-rock and/or roll band from The Future™.

And for something completely different, the article on the Stratfordshire Hoard was really exciting! The artifacts are gorgeous.

Star Trek meets Monty Python definitely appeals to my inner child. I adored Star Trek when it first came out even though, even at the time I recognized the cheese factor. Now, well the cheese factor trumps it. That episode about looking for Eden is pure 60s camp. And yeah, whoever did that editing job is really good.

Re: Staffordshire hoard. Just imagine being that guy and finding that. What an event. I'd be over the moon and I think I'd have been tempted to pocket at least one thing and not tell anyone. (Mmmm, shiny.) One can't help but wonder about the story behind such a treasure. It looks like there was a lot of human suffering involved, war trophies.

OMG! This is priceless :-D

Isn't it though? I guess it hits some people's funny bone more than others, either that or you have to be in the mood. My husband and younger daughter watched it expressionless. My older daughter and friend laughed as hard as I did.

Glad to brighten your day!

For me, it's the clever combination of sound and image that works here. It's ages since I watched Spamalot and I don't think I was particularly amused by it... too silly, perhaps, and too weird? Combining the song, meant to be funny, with silly pics probably not meant to be funny more than doubles the fun of watching/hearing it :)
