Five kinds of wrong…

The first record I ever bought with my own money was William Shatner’s “A Transformed Man.” I get a free pass on that one because I was 9 or 10 and all I cared about was that Captain Kirk was on the cover. The only thing that kept “A Transformed Man” from being ranked as the worst record ever made was that Leonard Nimoy also made a record, and while Shatner’s record is embarassing in parts, ultimately it’s very entertaining. Nimoy’s record is just painful.

Years ago while visiting Amsterdam I bought a record by Greg Morris, known to most folks as “the black guy on “Mission: Impossible.” If you play the Greg Morris record, Shatner’s album and Nimoy’s record back to back you’ll probably conjur some horrible demon from the dark netherworld who will precipitate the destruction of humanity, so it’s probably best that I long ago bequeathed the Shatner album to the my Step-dad. Keeping these records a continent apart is in the best interests of all of us.

At any rate, Boing Boing ran some fun links this morning, and among them is a link to a video someone created to accompany Bill Shatner’s rendition of “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.” That the creator managed to work so many “I Love Lucy” bits into this along with various Star Trek sound effects is what made it work for me.
