Why is he climbing a mountain?… Well, i think i’ll let Mr. Shatner explain.
(I apologise in advance for this getting stuck in your head for the next 3hrs).
I know this has been round the web a bit last week, but i thought i’d post it for those that haven’t caught it yet. Ever wondered what Ghostbusters would have been like if it had been made in the 1950s? Well some extremely talented spark put together this trailer so you can see. Work of pure genius!
In case you were wondering, here’s a list of the films used:
Ghostbusters, The Three Stooges, Scared Stiff, Ghost Breakers, Topper Takes a Trip, The Ghost Busters, Abbott and Costello meet the Invisible Man, Star Trek, Ghosts on the Loose, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Spooks Run Wild, Flubber, Son of Flubber, The Caddy, 100 ans d’histoires de Bibendum.
This is very silly, but it made me laugh.
Interesting bit of trivia regarding Zachary Quinto has popped up around the interwebs today. Apparently the new Mr. Spock had a few issues getting his hands into the famous ‘Vulcan Salute‘ position.
The salute was first used in the 1967 Star Trek episode “Amok Time” after Leonard Nimoy felt there should be some kind of distinctive greeting among Vulcans similar to a handshake or a bow. The salute, suggested by Nimoy, drew from his Jewish upbringing, and is based on a blessing gesture used by during a Jewish worship service.
Zachary apparently could only do the salute after he’d positioned his fingers the right way off-camera. Zak is not alone with this problem in the Star Trek universe. Celia Lovsky, who played T’Pau in the Original Series had a similar issue, as did William Shatner. In Shatner’s case they would tie his fingers together with fishing line to get them into position. The modern ‘hi-tech’ 2009 solution for Mr. Quinto?.. Sticking his fingers into position with skin-protective superglue!
Ever wondered what would happen if the USS Enterprise drifted off course, and ended up in a galaxy far far away… Well, your about to find out! Weird, random, but totally awesome!
