Filk Friday: Star Trekkin Across the Universe

I'd wanted to find an SF song that somehow related to alien life. Something that would go well with what Juliette talked about on Wednesday. But, I had a terrible day with my writing yesterday. The character I was going to use to drive the conflict for the middle third of the book is the completely wrong personality for what I want him to do. By the end of the day I finally decided to quit trying to figure out how to mash the square peg in the round hole and just save him for a later story. So, I'm creating a new character from scratch.

But this means I'm now a full day behind on my NaNo story plus the bit I hadn't finished making up from last week. So, instead of getting a perfect song, you're getting a fun song. Here is Star Trekkin Across the Universe. I first heard it on the Dr. Demento: Songs From Outer Space compilation CD my husband bought a couple years ago. Enjoy!

A classic memory from my youth!
I listened to Dr. Demento for years until the local station dropped his show, and that was always one of my favorites!

Hehe I rather figured that would catch your attention, Brad. :D

The video didn't load past the first minute for me but it looked hilarious. I grew up in England so I didn't know about Dr. Demento.


Jaleh D said...

That's okay, Jai. I grew up here, and I still didn't know about Dr. Demento until I met my hubby.

I shudder to think of what my teenage years would have been like without Dr. Demento.
Ironically, he kept me sane.;)
