Esquire + Bill

In this month's Esquire magazine, Bill talks about being Jewish in Montreal, doing drugs in Amsterdam, success and failure, and missing his dogs and horses.

Read it here.



I think doing his very personal one-man show is making him more comfortable with self-revelation. He doesn't duck questions and turn them into jokes.

Kirk and Chameleon Boy: Trek/Legion #5

There are several things we must point out here. First, just to explain, the Legion and the TOS gang are in a Mirror Universe in the Future, hence the costumes. (I don't know why Kirk isn't wearing command gold, tho.) That's supposed to be Sulu sitting between Uhura and Kirk.

But check out Chameleon Boy vamping behind Kirk:

THE WHOLE PAGE:

THE CLOSE-UP:
That's some costume! (It's what Shadow Lass is wearing - the blue woman in the first panel.) Too bad Kirk looks like a weird cross between McCoy and Movie!Kirk. I think he enjoys wearing skimpy outfits, don't you?

The last panel is also interesting for Cham's tongue action (done with a smile) and Kirk's quite interested reaction. Is he into shapeshifters, too? What am I saying! He's Kirk! He's into everything!

Hello?

You've probably wondering why we aren't posting 12-15 times a day about Bill's show on Broadway.

Well, that's because we're seeing it here in Chicago in 2 weeks and we don't want to know too much in advance.

But Bill! Is! ... EVERY...where.

Even on a stoop. Shtoop. Shtup.

Kirk + 6 Legionnaires = Master of His Domain

Remember how we discussed which female Legionnaire Kirk would like the most? Well, forget it, he gets all of them:























Too bad he looks kinda like Lee Majors here. But breasts! Lots of breasts! And Kirk's holding a BIG gun.

Kirk Would Not Allow Dr. Who on His Ship

But Picard would, apparently. Check this out:


A new comic crossover featuring Star Trek: The Next Generation and Doctor Who by IDW Publishing, announced for May, to be called "Doctor Who / Star Trek: The Next Generation".


Imagine Kirk when confronted with the Doctor.

Kirk: Have him thrown in the brig. He's clearly a madman. And get that box off my ship.

Doctor: Are you the Captain? Your awesomness levels are off the chart.

Kirk: Belay that order.

I guess today is Star Trek Mashup Day

No, it's not an online and strangely stiff captain propositioning an Orion Slave. It's the online Trek version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"!


It's only available outside the U.S. but that's OK because we have PLENTY of LISTENERS All! Around! ... the GLOBE!

Bill Always Welcomes the Chance to "Go Native"

(Not to mention "going native" on Natalie Wood.)



And there's this analysis of such a movie from The Mary Sue:
"I’ll say right now that I would totally watch a badly cut together remake of Avatar that uses color-shifted clips from Star TrekWest Side Story, and The Longest Day, and laugh and laugh. This poster, like those that come after it, cut right to the heart of a cinematic time period and the taste of Hollywood at the time, to point out that if this story had shown up in that era, William Shatner would totally have gotten his way into a blue girl’s pants, and no better blue girl than the one who Hollywood already considered to be an virginal all-American sweetheart capable of passing for an ethnicity she clearly was not."
Word.
