"...why is Gerard Way following LeVar Burton?"

On occasion, when I'm bored, I like to dick around on Twitter and see who people I'm following are following. This can be quite fun, because my following list is about 16% online friends and 84% dudes in rock bands. In case you have no frame of reference, dudes in rock bands tend to follow comedians and other dudes in rock bands. So I was pleasantly surprised when I clicked the profile link for Gerard Way, singer from My Chemical Romance, and found the fourth person added to his follow list, after his bandmates, was LeVar Burton. Granted, he hasn't tweeted since September and he's never shown any sign that he's into TNG or any Trek, but it sparked my interest and brightened my night a little nonetheless. His brother/bassist, Mikey, is also following Wil Wheaton for no apparent reason, though I get the feeling he's doing it in an effort to be ironically geeky.

So, anyway, the question I pose to you is, what is the most random moment you've seen Trek collide with another of your fandoms? I wanna hear the moments that made you simultaneously squee and go, "Wait, what? How are these things related?"

Tagged this as best I could. Some CPine action for your time.

FRIDAY FAN VID/ART/FIC/MISC POST!

It's that time of the week again: Friday!

So here is the weekly post where you GQMFs can post links to their own Star Trek-themed fan videos, art, fiction, crossover macros, and anything else that you feel best belongs right in here.

We recommend that you comment with a link to your journal/youtube/DeviantArt/etc, where we can all bust a gut laughing at your talent, as opposed to posting all the pictures/videos/etc in a single comment.

Punch
pimp it!
