New video added to JOLLY stuff: “All I Want For Christmas is You – Star Trek Mashup”

Ho, ho, ho!  Merry Christmas, everyone!  And Happy New Year, too!  Thank you all for being a part of this wonderful blog.  And in celebration of this joyous holiday, I present this very well-edited Star Trek mash-up with the popular song “All I Want for Christmas Is You”…

New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition”

Yes, yes…I know this is usually a blog about Star TREK fan films.  But hey, it’s a Star WARS weekend with The Last Jedi opening, so deal with it.  This is one of my all-time favorite Star Wars fan projects.  Released four years ago, it’s creatively brilliant, incredibly well-produced, and most of all, absolutely hilarious!  It took a team of both students and faculty in the Digital Video Program at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Arizona…plus dozens ofStar Wars cosplayers from the local Arizona community.  With nearly four million views, the force is strong with this amazing fan film / parody / music video masterpiece!

3 new parody music videos added to FUNNY STUFF: “DISCOVERY gets DIZZY!”

After the fourth episode of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY introduced the new spinny-winny “spore drive” that makes the starship whirl like a Dervish, someone decided to create a short parody music video using the chorus of the song “You Spin Me Right Round” by Dead or Alive.  Well, Jonathan decided to take it one step beyond by doing a parody music video using an ENTIRE song.  And which song, you ask?  How about the 1969 bubblegum pop hit “Dizzy” by Tommy Roe…

Earlier on, I “honed my craft” by trying to edit together a couple of other spinning songs.  Here was my first attempt using the rock classic “Dizzy Miss Lizzy” by The Beatles…

While fun (and a great song), that was a little too repetitive to really keep my interest.  So I tried again with the oh-so-perfectly titled “The Twist” by the legendary Chubby Checker…

Better, but not quite there yet.  And that’s when I remembered the song “Dizzy,” and well, you already saw the result at the top.

So forget about warp speed!  Toss out transwarp conduits and quantum drives!  We’re even leaving ludicrous speed in our dust!

Thanks to Lt. Stamets’ mushrooms, we get to moldly go where no fan has gone before!!!  Spore speed—when you absolutely, positively have to be there a second from now…

New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Star Trek TAG TEAM”

Like wrestling?  Hate wrestling?  Either way, you’re sure to to get a laugh out of Star Trek: TAG TEAM, a short parody from the folks at Spiffy Films.  They describe themselves as “…animated parodies, with a bent towards tactical flubbery, contextual inconsistency and immersion-busting minutiae; poking holes in all the places your brain had quite happily decided to leave the heck alone, because you were trying to enjoy your popcorn, gosh dernit…”  Here’s what happened when Spiffy Films got their hands on Star Trek:
