spock lyre

Daiel was telling me of this star trek episode where spock plays his lute/lyre to a colony of space hippies. somehow he is the only member of the enterprise that isn't part of the "establishment" and is therefore able to commune with them.


nasty space hippies


"if i had a vulcan hammer"


after spock soothes the hippie revolution he wonders, "did i just sell out?"

oops! I posted on the wrong thingy.

Is that the space-hippie super group of Petrar, Paulez and Marig he is strumming for?

space hippies are always high because of replicator technology.

space hippies will crash on your shuttle bay floor for as long as you let them.

F'in space hippies.

I remember this episode!! In the one of the scenes you posted, Spock is really rocking out, with his head bobbing up and down. He's a really great actor and is musically talented, too.

Isn't there another episode in which both Spock and Kirk get stoned by sniffing this really big flower, or am I making that up?

Your preview of the new JCrew Spring 2006 swimwear collection is rocking my worlds within worlds. I'll take the halter top Man Bikini on the left in XXL
Thanks!

Corny, you will look smashing -- it is the slingshot mankini of its day.

JD, are you thinking of the episode where they go to the tropical planet and the spores fly out "boioioing" and suddenly Kirk's dead wife is giving him a hand job? I loved that one.

This is a great post. Spock playing the lyre or something. I am going to noodle.

mountain man said...

I am crying inside from delight. This is too good. Esp. so close to your painting. Something spacey hippie about that too, in the best way. Buffalo from space hippie planet.

sloth, i NEED to see this episode with the hand job and the spores.

I wish arthur would wear this man bikini just around the house to do the vacuuming, cleaning the cat boxes, light industrial work, etc. It really captures the Jcrew look. The love of devil may care.

i am really wanting to make a spock painting. It would be dumb, but entertaining for me. Spock in the flowers. ?

fairy butler said...

spock paintings would totally sell.

fairy butler said...

and that is always my primary motivation, of course.

daiel said...

Spock looks really bummed out in the bottom picture. Perhaps he is grasping the poverty of neoliberalism?

fairy butler said...

he is really bummed out - i think he is just coming down. no more hippy sex and drugs for spock.

sloth said...

Fairy, you MUST MAKE A SPOCK PAINTING! omg please please do it.

daiel said...

I think you should completely redirect your artistic focus and do nothing but really extreme, hardcore gay Spock/Dr. McCoy porn. They always had this kind of flirty yet adverserial relationship on the show that reminded me of the two Jays on America's Next Top Model, and now that DeForest Kelly is no more, I think you should depict his unfulfilled destiny of being Spock's little ass-whore it in the most graphic manner possible.

I will not be satisfied until you swear on the eyes of your children that your first painting will depict "Bones" crawling away from Spock in tears, with blood gushing from his rectum.

fairy butler said...

yes daiel. this is an interesting take. I will simply call this series "bones" . note that I will depict these fellows in their later geriatric splendor. spock will have a thing that he does with his ears.

fairy butler said...

the star trek uniform is a perfect vehicle for describing the male parts.

postmoderndebunker said...

I would love to see a show of Starship Enterprise paintings. I think you should approach Feature gallery about it.

fairy butler said...

noodle pd. spot on.
