T'Keid's Irresistible Vid

In time for the captain's birthday today, T'Keid has posted her new Kirk/Spock vid, set to an irresistible song: "Something's Gotta Give," sung by the Velvet Fog, Mel Torme. Perfect, pure schmaltz * (chicken fat, the Jewish ham).

Momo embedded some fun Kirk vids too, including "International Talk Like William Shatner Day."
*I just looked schmaltz up, curious, and according to Wikipedia, besides meaning excessively sentimental, maudlin, florid: "In the Montreal Jewish community, it is a slang term for money." Which is only interesting because that's the community from whence came our boy Bill! And he made a lot of money with his schmaltz. There you go--it was fated. Or something.

What a great word--thanks, I didn't know it.

(I looked it up. Bashert means "destiny" in Yiddish, and it is often used in the sense of "soulmate"--s/he is my bashert.)
