Um, wow.

Everyone knows about William Shatner's career as a musician. His 1968 album The Transformed Man is nigh unlistenable, but his 2004 follow-up, Has Been, which was produced by the inimitable Ben Folds, is an excellent album. And everyone has seen or at least heard about his performance of Elton John's Rocket Man.

But did you know that Leonard Nimoy also had a career as a musician? I didn't, either, until I saw this.

I hope Guillermo Del Toro has seen this. And that he uses the song during the closing credits of The Hobbit.

Man Uses Loose Change to Buy Car


I'm not at all surprised that it happened in Ohio, either.

EDIT: I realized that my modifier was dangling in the original title of this post. The man used loose change to buy a car, he did not buy a car that was filled with loose change. Though that would have been equally strange.

I've always thought Marshall Law was a good idea...

Apparently someone in Arkansas agrees with me.
