  1. Happy birthday, Bill.  Thanks for blowing my mind with the TekWar series.

    My friend’s sister briefly dated Shatner back in the (Toronto) day. My pal told me that whenever Shatner would call to speak with his sister, it would invariably be their dad who would answer the phone, and he would shout: “Carolyn! It’s Captain Kirk!” to let her know, much to her annoyance.

    He’s actually pretty damn funny in Shit My Dad Says.

    I’ll just leave this here, since it over-superiorizes all the above videos. So there.

    When I was doing design work for Billy Idol in the early 1990s, we had a discussion about Star Trek. Billy said he loved the original series, and didn’t care for the later versions because William Shatner was the only man worthy to captain a starship. I agree with Billy 100%. Happy Birthday William Shatner!

    I have that exact photo autographed. Only… crap… I am not sure where that it… also missing my MW Kaluta sketch.

    Anyway – I had a chance to interview him one on one, but I had to attend a stupid wedding shower. My own :o/

    I’m sorry, but those old spoken word performances are just painful. OUCH!!!

    His show (which he performed in Dallas tonight) was pretty much greatness all around. His account of how Koko the gorilla tried to seduce him is hilarious, whether it’s true or not. I don’t know how many performances he has left in this tour, but if you can make it, go.

    Dang! I’m late. I don’t suppose there’s any cake left.
    Of all the Big Giant Heads in the universe, he’s my favorite.

    It’s impossible for me to even think about Shatner’s “Rocket Man” without also thinking of Chris Elliott’s version, which I think was an affectionate tribute. Happy birthday, Mr. Shatner.
