Which was used thusly:

There is no guarantee that it will get James Kirk into bed with you - but hey, it worked for Deela!

Show #127 - May 30

Episode 127 on MP3

Just an amuse-bouche before the next real ep.

We appear at Shatfest! (sorry it got cut off and about the sound quality)
Shatmoy interview with Chad Nelson!
Bill in the GQ interview!

"You have to have many orgasms to overcome the fear."

Not a problem, Bill.

Third Season Kirk

Our friends over at TrekCore continue to post extremely lovely Blu-Ray high-def screencaps of TOS episodes. They've just done The Savage Curtain - not one of our faves - but I found some great shots of Kirk. Sure, it's third season and he's put weight, and he's got a terrible toupee, but it's BILL!

Look at the faces. And the pointing.

Sheer Shatner.

Enjoy. And click to embiggen.

Jonathan Frakes IS William Shatner!

I was just listening to Frakes, Wil Wheaton, and LeVar Burton doing a panel at the Phoenix Comic Con and I wanted to see what Frakes looks like these days - and I found THIS picture of him! Does he look like Bill or WHAT? I think that if they film a biography of Bill, they should get Frakes to play him in his later years. Amazing.

Also, Frakes is really funny. I didn't know he was so snarky.

Also also, Captain Kirk was mentioned during the panel EVEN THOUGH they were supposed to be talking about TNG.

According to the New York Post...

From The New York Post.
Post television columnist Michael Starr has signed a deal with Sterling & Ross to write a biography of legendary actor/singer/pitchman William Shatner.

Notice it's not an authorized biography. Does that mean we can count on some yummy dish? Or will it be left to us to provide that once again?

Bill! Is! Everywhere!

Hanging on the wall of an editor's cube:

Kind of blurry but here's what he's saying: "But what, O Editors of TCL, are the rules for serial commas!!"

Imagine that in Shatnerese.

Bill shills for Shit!

I love the fact that Bill can explain what the show is about even though he DOESN'T UNDERSTAND HOW TWITTER WORKS. What a pro.

Bill looks great!

Bill reads Shit My Dad Says actual tweets

Two things:

1. He reads the word "fucking" but they bleeped it out

2. He gets the title wrong at the end

3. He SAYS "My Best, Bill". (Sometimes abbreviated in tweets to MBB)

OK, three things.

Thanks, Jen!

What Bill thinks the show should be called

From Slate:
It should be more obvious yet that the casting department knew in an instant whom to speed-dial. In days gone by, when a great actor reached a great age—Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud come to mind here—he would take another go at the great Shakespeare tragedy about the mad king and his three daughters. In 2010, when a casting agent needs a great ham actor in his 70s, there is only one place to go, and $#*! My Dad Says is William Shatner's King Lear. The show's tag line seems to be, "The Shat hits the fan."

Wiping the truffled crumbs of one such canapé from my mouth, I asked Shatner how he thought CBS should refer to $#*! My Dad Says on air. Moonves had told me that there was an "ongoing discussion" about whether they'd go with "Stuff My Dad Says" or "Bleep My Dad Says" or "[Bleeeep] My Dad Says," but the star wants to be very specific about the vague noun: "We say spit; why can't we say shit?" said Shat. "Shit is a very natural function of the body. We shouldn't discard it."
Oh, Bill.

PS. Anyone know where I can get a better copy of this image? I screencapped this from the YouTube clip. Look at his eyes!

Perilous Voyage

This clip from Perilous Voyage came to us from RubyPearl. It's chock-full of Shatnerific Shatnerness. And at the end--the weirdest kiss ever. Enjoy!

Slate Blames William Shatner for Knife Attacks on Chinese Children [Oops]

Of course it's an error! Bill only uses his powers for GOOD.

A tipster thought an image of William Shatner over the headline 'How the Chinese Explain the Rash of Horrific Knife Attacks on Schoolchildren' might be the best contrarian Slate piece ever. But it seems it was just a mistake.

In Costume

A photo of Bill in costume for "Shit My Dad Says."

About the title: I think they should keep the original title, "bad" word and all, but change the spelling of the last word: Shit My Dad Sez.

Dr. Oz's Mystery Guest

LOVE the audience!

This Ask Oz special is so top secret not even the Doctor knows who’s coming! Hint: this superstar is Dr. Oz’s hero. The topic: predicting...

Confession: When I saw the commercial that precedes the clip, I actually thought, "A commercial for Banana Kirk? Wow!"
