I Dream of Blooper Reels and Conventions…

Occasionally I have Trek dreams, but  haven’t had one  in a long while,  so the one I awoke from on June 23rd was remarkable!

Apparently it was 1989 and I was at a Star Trek convention in Germany, just as the Berlin Wall was being torn down.  Thousands of people were at the Brandenburg Gate, cheering to be reunited with their relatives, and also, apparently a bunch of Star Trek fans.  On a podium were Shatner, Kelley, Doohan, and Nimoy smiling and waving.

Then suddenly there was a scene from a never-before-seen blooper reel.  There was Nimoy as Spock in a close-up tossing a red apple back and forth to someone off camera.  We see it being tossed at him, and it bonks him in the nose! There is no audio, but we can see him mouthing “OW!  That Hurt, Dammit!” then laughing it off!

Then I was back with the crowd,   Bill, De, and James all looked like themselves but Leonard looked a bit odd.  He was wearing the famous blue patchwork jacket and jeans, but his hair was down to his neck in an odd pageboy cut, kind of making his look like Robert Wagner as Prince Valiant!

Then there was another video, this one of Nimoy walking in a garden setting.  This time he looked as he did on In Search Of…   But it wasn’t so much  where he was, but what he said.  He was talking about making a good life, and he suddenly pointed to a flat stone on the path and said “Someday I will be buried here, but I’ll be alright.” ,then talked about how special every day is, and how not to waste it.  He said he was happy with his life.

Then next I only saw the thousands of people moving forward past the broken Berlin Wall, cheering along with their Trek heroes.

That was it, but it was quite amazing!   It inspired me to make this collage:

Happy Belated Birthday, Bill! (Bill Shatner 83 on 3/22)

Our fellow scrapper Corylea gently pointed out to me that last Saturday was Bill Shatner’s Birthday!   I knew this somewhere in the back of my brain, but I’ve been very busy lately with work and projects.  So without further adieu, Happy Belated 83rd Birthday to our sweet Captain Charming!  Love ya, Bill! 83 bill bday

(I’ll get your weekly dose of Spock up later today 🙂 )

3/22/13– A Little Shatner Love! Happy 82nd Birthday William Shatner!

I have to confess, TrekkerScrapbook is often Spock/Nimoy-Centric.  But on a day like this one has to recall the joy and blessing of William Shatner! What a wonderful, funny, intense, caring, delightful and damned sexy actor! Man, Talk about Captain CHARMING!  That naughty smirk, that dash of hair across his brow, and those HAZEL EYES!!!! Lord have Mercy. They don’t make ’em like this anymore!

Honestly, can you imagine how different (and probably a LOT less fun) the Original Star Trek may have been WITHOUT him?  I know I’ve made fun of Kirk’s character a lot here, but I’ve always loved Bill Shatner!   I’ve included some of his funniest, sexiest, and most dramatic moments here. What a treasure.  He’ll always be the Captain of Our Hearts!

 A Very, Very Happy 82nd Birthday Bill! Just for you, a very special (and long overdue) “Kirk Kollage” ! 

With Love and Blessings from trekkerscrapbook.com!
