Bill Conquers Art Again!

Can't believe we didn't know about this 2009 exhibit in San Francisco.
Butler explores what image-making does best: he imagines a world that should exist while questioning the one that currently does.
And how better to do this than with images of Captain Kirk?


See more and read about the artist, Luke Butler.

Bill "sings" Good King Wenceslas

Truly Shatneriffic. Contains Shacting! You might even say it's Shat-WOW! And you'll be hearing more of this from us.




The Karaoke Maru

Don't let the word "Karaoke" squick you - this really rocks! I bet they play it at Starfleet Academy graduation.

Bill Conquers Pain!

It's on the internet so it must be true.

In an article about Things Other Than Drugs That Relieve Pain, one of the Things was religion.

The following comment was NOT posted by us, hard as that may be to believe.
Become a devout Star Trek fan and you can get the same benifit from a picture of young William Shatner.

See? Your headache went away, didn't it?

WANT! WANT! WAAAAAAAAANT!

A wall companion for Big Cardboard Kirk! Made with "space-age new materials!"


Little lines pointing at the crotchal area that is disappointingly covered up by useless words--is that what you'd call subliminal advertising?

Galaxy Quest > Aliens

Courtesy of io9 (image from there too):
In between shooting up aliens in the new Jon Favreau Alien Western C&A, Sam Rockwell shared a little about his character, Doc, "I kind of serve as the Jimmy Stewart, Bill Paxton of the piece," Rockwell explained. "I'm sort of like sincere but I have those moments of levity." And after bringing up Paxton, he found it only right to give past credit where it was due. "I copied everything I did in Galaxy Quest from Bill Paxton in Aliens, I owe him some credit."

So does that mean that Sigourney Weaver in Aliens is really William Shatner?

Got a question? You know Bill has the answer.

SUPER KIRKLIGHT!

Bill and Early Television


PBS will air its "Pioneers of Television" Sci-Fi episode on January 18, 2011, 8:00 pm ET/PT.
Storytellers Gene Roddenberry, Irwin Allen and Rod Serling created the storylines and characters behind the best-loved futuristic television of their time. But as Roddenberry’s “Star Trek” competed for ratings with Allen’s “Lost in Space,” each show’s creator aimed for a very different direction. This episode explores how Roddenberry and Serling (of “The Twilight Zone”) used the future as a stage for modern morality plays, and William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols and other science-fiction stars describe how they prepared to interact on-camera with a malevolent alien force … or, perhaps, a giant radish.
Actually, all 4 episodes (Sci-Fi, Westerns, Crime Drama, and Local Kids TV) sound interesting. Note that Bill is also mentioned as a performer who worked in Local Kids TV so perhaps we'll finally see a clip or photo of His Buttness on the Howdy Doody Show.

Maynard Shills like Shatner

Our dear friend Maynard attended The Amazing Meeting, OZ edition, and was everywhere at once, seemingly. And he SHILLED for US! Listen to this great interview with Skepchick Rebecca Watson.

Hey Rebecca, you know me! I was in the Skepchick calendar once upon a time! I used a quote from Harlan Ellison and he thanked me personally!

Using his super-powers (charm & hotness) for good

William Shatner is a well known and respected icon of pop culture. As such he is one of the best celebrity spokesman for any cause. His persona embodies masculinity. If you wanted to retain his service as ambassador on your behalf the price tag would undoubtedly be hefty. I was so proud to have Captain Kirk defend a Gay man, even if it was only on a TV sitcom, against bullying by one of his Navy buddies that I had to write about it and share it with you all.


That quote is from a review of last week's episode of Shit My Dad Says at New Gay Earth (where all are welcome). BTW, the name of the episode was "The Manly Thing To Do."

Doin' us proud! Man up, homophobes!

A great interview

Wonderful interview at msn.



"It's like dinner theatre." Aw, c'mon, Bill. We all know what it's really like...

Uncensored!

Brought to you by none other than Bill Shatner himself (via Twitter).



Bill is an equal-opportunity speaker - he loves ALL words, even the ones that get bleeped.

Bill's Latest Cause



Bill has joined Jimmy Kimmel in promoting November 17 as National Unfriend Day. Nice article about it here.

So Bill, are you going to unfriend all those non-friends of yours on Facebook? Thereby making room for a whole bunch of new non-friends? Like us?

Think about it.

I know you're all wondering...

...why we haven't posted the clip of Bill singing "F**k you" on the George Lopez Show.

Here at LAHB, we have standards and we are proud to uphold them.

We will not post that clip until and unless we can post an uncensored version.

What Makes a Good Captain



Oh fuck yes.

Bill is EVERYWHERE - and in Cars

From today's SF Chronicle - Pop Quiz with Gary Numan:
Q: Your songs have been done by everyone from Nine Inch Nails to Homer Simpson. Do you have a favorite cover version?

A: I'm told that William Shatner did a version of "Cars" and, if that's true, I can't tell you how cool it is for me to know that Captain Kirk has covered one of my songs. It doesn't get any better than that. If he hasn't, then I remain unfulfilled as a songwriter.

It's true, Gary. You are now officially Fulfilled.

Bill hasn't played Young Hot Kirk in a few decades and yet...

...when rounding up potential villains for the next Trek movie, all of the "key scenes" are obviously for YH Kirk, not YD Kirk.

Captain Kirk Beams Down to the Christmas Parade


Rare footage from 1968, Columbia, South Carolina. It's silent so provide your own soundtrack. Ours was
Did her ... did her ... did all three of them ... did the entire squad at the same time ... /squeal!/ BILL! .. slammed down some Kirk-fu on those clowns and their little cars ... /sigh/ Bill ..."

1-2-3, 1-2-3...



From the Examiner:
The evening was all about laughs with William Shatner. The lighthearted American sweetheart has always been the entertainer who gave more than others

Ahem!

The Captains of the Final Frontier, a new two-hour Star Trek documentary to be aired on the Bio Channel on Wednesday, November 3 at 9 PM, will focus on the “fearless captains of each Star Trek generation.”

In the show, a cast of Star Trek experts will analyze each Star Trek captain, whose “incredible triumphs and epic dark moments” will be discussed with the captains being compared “against each other as leaders and lovers.”
First of all, it's already established that Kirk is the best leader, lover and all-round-guy you wanna be and/or fuck.


So what are they going to do for 2 hours? Let's see...
The Star Trek experts include creators and directors, episode writers, novelists and Star Trek actors.
No fans? Seriously? One fan is more of a Star Trek expert than all of those put together.

Sheesh.

OTOH, it's KIRK so don't miss it!

Build your own origami Enterprise!

From the ever-resourceful Jonk.


You can download a pattern and it comes with instructions I will never be able to follow. I know because I just put together a dog crate. Hope they don't laugh at us at the airport.

Here's the pattern and here are the instructions.

If you build it, they will warp.

If you meet Bill...

...here's some (possibly but probably not) helpful advice.
You’re walking down the street, casually minding your own business, when you suddenly bump shoulders with William Shatner. You are by far too much of a devoted fan to be able to ignore him, yet you don’t have time to start a good conversation or even plan a good ruse. What do you do?

Simple: fake medical emergency! A seizure is good, because it means you don’t have to carry around large quantities of fake blood. Pretending to choke on a piece of food might also work. Even if William Shatner just walks right on by, chances are that he will at least talk about you to his friends later: “Hey, I killed a man today.”

[...] After Mr. Shatner saves your life by performing the Heimlich maneuver, you can say “Thanks, unknown sir!” or “That was awesome, Mr. Shatner, but what was with Generations? How did that missile reach the sun so quickly? Did it have a warp drive attached?” Mr. Shatner will then viciously slap you, but you can take a picture of the bruise and send it to all your friends.


Fake-saving someone who's fake-having a medical emergency, SHATNER-STYLE!

LAHB's word cloud

I used a cool app called Wordle to create this image. It takes the most commonly used words in the whole blog and makes a word cloud out of it. The font is called Sexsmith, naturally.



Don't you love the way the words "sweet" and "william" are next to each other? But where, oh where, is "love"?

("Oh" is up there for the sheer number of "Oh, Bill"s.)

It's like sex.

No, wait, it IS sex! New pairing: Shatner/Script.

Justin Halperin (blogger of Shit My Dad Says and producer of S**t My Dad Says) describes writing for William Shatner.
His enthusiasm is infectious. It’s a joy to watch him put his spin on a line we’ve written. It’s as if the line enters Shatner, and Shatner’s brain and the line flirt for a few moments before his brain grabs the line and begins to make sweet love to it.

Shortly after, the line has been impregnated. It has a short gestation period until he speaks the line aloud and the live studio audience witnesses the miracle that is the child of the written line and Shatner’s brain, covered in amniotic fluid and waiting to be loved … and applauded.


Bill prepares to make sweet love to these lucky words.

Thanks for the heads-up, Bria.

She touches his leg! TWICE!

Thinkgeek Comes Through Again

Enterprise Pizza Cutter!


As described in the Dallas Observer:
When your Slave Leia Apron isn't enough, there's always room for Shatner's favorite pizza cutter. In our minds, William Shatner slices hors d'oeuvres-sized pizzas with this to impress guests. "What's that you say? You like my pizza cutter? Oh, this old thing [laughs]."
