I couldn't believe this song existed the first time I heard it! Poor JRR must be rollin' in his grave. Hope you enjoy!

The movie seems to run real slow if viewed on Moziila on a the mac platform. It runs fine in IE. If its running slow, jump over to my home page at http://users.rcn.com/rmkerr and view it there.

That was sweet!

I can't believe that this was made all the way back in 2002! The artwork is just so fantastic it seems a lot more modern! It's stuff like this that really makes you appreciate how flash artists have always worked hard on their animation. The best part was probably how there seem to be so many contrasting styles. Like Spock himself had a very smooth and reflecting appearance. Kirk and Uhura had live-action heads.

The red fish were also more cartoony. Spock's shirt seem to omit the black outlines completely and went for a more airbrushed look. Lastly, the images of Bilbo were from the cartoon movie. It's the kind of thing that makes you anticipate the upcoming live-action Hobbit movie. It makes me proud to be a Star Trek/Lord Of The Rings fan!
