Star Trek: Julia Ecklar - Born Again Trek

This is one of the only songs I have ever heard that captures my love of Star Trek!  Julie Ecklar always delivers her trademaek brilliant performance.

What you have to remember about this song is, at the time their was a growing rift between Star Wars and Star Trek fans.  I tried to remain neutral, but songs like this and the Klingon Fight Song, made it nearly impossible to remain so.

Eben Brooks: The Ballad of Barry Allen

Eben Brooks delivers again with this great track and video.  There is something oddly funny about the story of Barry Allen (The Flash) told like this.

I especially appreciate the images for City of Heroes in the video.  I am an avid player, and I love the way he used the images to add drama to the video.

If you know of any other good Superhero or City of Heroes vids, leave them in the comments.  I would love to see them.

AT-AT These Shoes Are Made For Walkin'

AT-AT in shoes

I love this picture.  Every time I look at it I can't help but to get the song These Boots Are Made for Walkin' by Lee Hazlewood, first recorded by Nancy Sinatra.  I wonder if there is a funny filk song out of this...

Hoth, You keep saying you've got something for me. something you call ice, but confess. You've been messin' where you shouldn't have been a messin' and now rebels are gettin' all your basses.

These At-Ats are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do one of these days these At-Ats are gonna walk all over you.

You keep lying, when you oughta be baren and you keep sheltern' when you oughta not be. You keep rebeln' when you oughta be conformn'. Now what's right is right, but you ain't been right yet.

These At-Ats are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do one of these days these At-Ats are gonna walk all over you.

You keep fightn' where you shouldn't be fightn' and you keep thinkin' that you´ll never get burnt. Ha! I just found me a brand new box of matches yeah and what Ben know you ain't HAD time to learn.

Are you ready At-Ats? Start walkin'!

Now all I need is someone to sing this beauty and pleas share it with me.
