FUNNY video: “TIM RUSS explains STAR WARS DAY”

Happy STAR WARS DAYS, everybody…MAY THE FOURTH be with you!  Now, I realize that this is a blog site primarily about Star TREK, and some of my readers might not have heard of this Star WARS thing.  I understand.  Until recently, I, too, was confused.  But no more!  Star Trek: Voyager‘s TIM “Tuvok” RUSS, an expert in science fiction if ever there was one, has now explained what this whole “May the Fourth” thing means…

New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Fanboys Anonymous – Star Wars v Star Trek STREET FIGHT”

Yeah, I know you’ve probably seen a TON of “Star Wars versus Star Trek” fan films, but this one is totally MENTAL…and I mean that literally!  The creators have recently released a series of humorous short films focusing on the fictional (at least, I hope it’s fictional!) TOTAL REHAB MEDIA CLINIC for addictions to Star Trek, Star Wars, Minecraft, Skyrim—you name the fan addiction, they treat it.  You can view their other recent releases here.  But their funniest and most ambitious production yet is an inspired “field trip” where the patients from the Star Trek and Star Wars therapy groups —usually separated—are dropped off together to stretch their legs  for a short bit while the clinic director goes off to make a quick phone call.  What follows is hilariously brilliant and a MUST SEE funny video…

New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek”

When wild rumors tuned into inescapable and mind-blowing reality, Trek fans were suddenly faced with a new concept to process: (in)famous Hollywood director QUENTIN TARANTINO will be in charge of the next Star Trek movie!   Yes, the man who brought us such family-friendly films as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, Inglorious Bastards, and Django Unchained (to name but a few!) will be at the helm of the USS Enterprise for the fourth Star Trek film in the rebooted franchise.  And leave it to the geniuses at THE NERDIST to come up with a brilliant way to visualize what we’re all now kinda expecting (and dreading?—perhaps)…

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:
