Watching the Web – George Takei: A Hero Needs a Song

 Total Fan Girl, Nicole Wakelin brings us pure gold for today’s Watching the Web. With Spiderman: Turn Out the Dark in need of a star, George Takei is taking the opportunity to throw his hat into the selection process. We agree! George Takei should be Spiderman!

Behold, the wonder of George Takei.  Brilliant acting, perfectly choreographed stunts and fantastic improv skills.  Seriously, the man has a backup phaser.  Only problem?  His theme song is incomplete and a hero just isn’t a hero without a theme song…. 

Spiderman, Spiderman,
George Takei should be Spiderman.
Throws a punch, lands a kick
Check his moves they’re really sick
Ohhhh Myyyy!
Here comes the Spiderman.

Is he strong?
Listen bud.
He’s got better than Klingon blood.
Can he swing, from a wire
Hook him up, he’ll go higher
Ohhhh Myyyy!
There goes the Spiderman.

In the glare of the lights
Hanging over the stage
He can win all the fights
And he won’t break a leg.

Spiderman, Spiderman
Hiro’s Dad should be Spiderman.
Allegiance is too far away
Sulu needs a gig today.

To him, life is a great big Ohhhh Myyyy!
Wherever there’s an Ohhhh Myyyy!
George Takei should be Spiderman!

Nicole began the Journey to Geekdom when her parents gave her a Pong Console for a birthday present. This was followed by countless viewings of Classic Star Trek and Creature Double Feature with her Dad. There was no turning back. She is an avid reader of anything sci-fi or supernatural and is especially fond of butt-kicking heroines with customized weapons hidden up the sleeves of their leather jackets. If you see her in her own leather jacket, avoid making her angry by remembering that Han shot first, Starbuck is a guy, and vampires do not sparkle. You’ve been warned.
