The only thing that could make an earworm more palatable and tolerable would be a mashup.
I’ve had Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” cycling through my head for about a week now. (Thank you. I know your pity is palpable).
To make the pain a little easier, I found this video that combines the pop star and Captain Kirk and now I must share it with you.
Ok, it’s not sharing, it’s more like I’m spreading the misery.
You can thank me later.

Oh, William Shatner, how I heart you and your vocal stylings.
I found Shatner’s rendition of the Elton John tune “Rocket Man” and I can’t get enough of this. It was part of the televised 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards.
As if his singular version isn’t trippy enough, through the “magic of television” they bring in a couple of other versions of Shatner for a trio finale.
I wonder if Travelocity could use any of this footage in their commercials? Nahh.
As a bonus, you get Karen Black introducing Bernie Taupin at the front end of the clip.
Of course, Family Guy lets Stewie do his dream version of Shatner, but I’ll stick with the truly original Captain Kirk puffing, sweating and offering dramatic pauses as he wends his way through Elton’s tune.
Of course, I’ve previously documented here at the Queen’s abode some appreciation of Captain Kirk’s appeal to alien babes and the Star Trek theme song.

I’m trying to get in the Christmas spirit, but haven’t had much luck lately.
Oddly enough, these geeky little Christmas ornaments may have helped perk up the spirits a bit, considering I have actually had two of them dangle from my own tree.
Yep, Newscoma has the Captain Kirk and Dr. Spock ornaments.
It seems, there are ornaments for all sorts of gamers out there too.
Everything from the old-school NES
to the Wii can dangle from your Douglas Fir.
And who needs fruit cake (even an inflatable fruit cake) when there are sushi ornaments available.

I’m by no means a sci fi Star Trek geek, but it never fails that an episode of the space travel TV show makes me giggle at least twice.
One of those giggles is usually because Captain Kirk is having some green alien babe with an intricate beehive, twirly hairdo trying to get into his tight black uniform pants.
It happens at least every other episode.
If you’re curious about James T’s space nooky, PopFi has several links that have the lowdown on the Captain’s insatiable appetites.
I do know one thing, after seeing the pic above, I’ll never question his manhood.
