This is the first Musical Monday song and video that I am actually in. There is a good chance that it is the only one I will be in for the foreseeable future, mostly because I have extraordinarily little musical talent. The redhead is in this video too, but that's not that exciting for her, because she was already in a music video before when she appeared in The Doubleclicks video for Love You Like a Burrito. Now that she's been in two music videos, her fame might go to her head. We are over there in the percussion section, listening to Andy Fark tell everyone to hit the beat "on the two and the four, and not the one and the three".

This is the sort of thing that gives me hope that fandom will survive all of the unpleasantness that is surrounding WorldCon right now. Because this is what fans do: They get together and sing a song about a goofy event in an episode on a show that they all love even though it went off the air fifty years ago. Part of the joy of fandom is creating things. Making costumes, writing fanfic, writing fanzines, volunteering to put on conventions, sewing tribbles together, and yes, putting together a Star Trek tribute band. Fans create communities, and create tangible expressions of their love. No set of self-absorbed authors greedily grasping for undeserved awards can change that.
