For anyone who thought that Peter Jackson ruined Middle Earth, I present you with Leonard Nimoy's Ballad of Bilbo Baggins:



Jesus fuck...

What the hell is that from? It doesn't even start to make sense?

Random happy young people singing and dancing about Bilbo AND Nimoy singing and frolicking with them?

Why? No, really, why?!

Call Me Cate said...

Sad to say I've seen this video before. And spent the entire day with the song stuck in my head. I will NOT click it this time. I refuse!

Some Guy said...

Wow. I hope he watches that everyday to keep himself from getting too big a head.

And Gandalf said, "SHOOT ME NOW!"

Soda and Candy said...

What the fuck?

I can't even process that. Was he on acid or something? I mean... what the fuck?!

Eric said...

Mjenks, you unbelievable bastard.

Why, oh why would you post such a thing where sane people might see it? It's a bell that cannot be unrung...

Fancy Schmancy said...

I love you and your blog, but you could not make me watch that for all the tea in wherever Spock comes from.

Cooper Green said...

When those little guys fight, there is plenty of laundry. Don't mess with Bilbo unless you've got a change of clothes.

Scope said...

That's "special". I'd heard the song, of course, but never had I seen the "choreography" before.

Wow.

The Peach Tart said...

I'm speechless

Happy Hour...Somewhere said...

I miss Dr. Demento.

Those dancers apparently were all afflicted with a combination of Tourettes and Parkinson's.

Regardless, that was a wonderful ode to a wonderful hobbit by a wonderful vulcan. Well done, Leonard.

Alaina said...

I could have happily and contentedly gone through life without experiencing that. So thank you very little indeed.

Girl Interrupted said...

Well, you know, there really were an awful lot of drugs going around in the 60's

Nej said...

What the fuck was that?

Watching it and listening to it was bad enough....but now it's stuck in my head.

I'm giving you the evil eye...can you feel it???? :-)

@ Erin: Apparently, that's just something ol' Len decided to do. Apparently, he's a fan of the The Lord of the Rings. Why that justifies a ballad about Bilbo, I'll never know.

@ Cate: Yeah, it's catchy. I was going to tie "Leonard Nimoy's Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" into Six Word Saturday, but since I left the house at 7:30 and didn't return until almost 9:00 that night, I didn't get to. Oh well. Your readership is probably thankful.

@ Some Guy: The way Shatner watches his version of Rocket Man?

@ corticoWhat: And the King of the Forest Elves was like "Leave! Take the Dwarves! Just stop singing that infernal song!"

@ Soda & Candy: Exactly my thoughts. The 70s were a special time. Or 60s. Or whenever they invented color.

@ Eric: It was so special, I needed to share it with everyone. I'm a giver like that.

@ Fancy: You might need something a bit stiffer than tea in order to make this video make sense.

@ Cooper Green: Hairy Feet: A Hobbit's secret weapon.

@ Scope: That's what I liked the most, too. The "choreography" was spot on great, wasn't it?

@ Peach Tart: Kinda sucks the words right out of you. And a little piece of your soul, too.

@ Happy Hour: Dr. Dimento is curled up in the closet, rocking back and forth, humming the strains to Bilbo's ballad. It's best not to disturb him.

@ Chemgeek: The pointy ears were just...I dunno. Mix in Spock and the prosthetics and...you've got yourself some kind of ear fetish thing going on.

@ Alaina: But now your life is enriched by the greatness of that video clip.

@ Nej: I can feel it. And it makes me giggle.

Nej said...

Giggling, eh? You are truly evil. I love it!
