Bill wants to sex us up

And we're fine with it.

Thanks, Sean.

For one man, shame has no meaning.

As Bill was shilling for "Shit My Dad Says" (yes, I actually typed it out--Shit. Get over it.)

One critic repeatedly asked about a theory that pornography and the social nature of Star Trek fans "did sort of launch the Internet." Shatner tried to deflect the question but the critic followed up and finally asked, “Do you not in some minor way feel responsible?”
I am responsible. And I'm shouldering it. I'm okay.
Eat his static, Al Gore.

And man oh manischewitz, does he look good!

Let me save you some time.

If the question starts with "Who should replace" and ends with a question mark, the answer is William Shatner. VOTE NOW!

He's William Shatner. He deserves to be on every celebrity list. Enough said.
-- Amy Roth
You can't argue with that.

Even if you don't know what you're voting for (new judge for American Idol), don't watch American Idol (we don't), don't know what American Idol is (lucky you), and/or don't feel right about voting without knowing who the other candidates are (they aren't Shatner--'nuff said), VOTE NOW!

Bill Shills and EW Loves It


But a very interesting article.

EW: William Shater talks great $#*! and wiscom at press tour
If Shatner can translate the energy and intelligence he brought to this press conference to $#*! My Dad Says, it’ll be a sitcom worth watching.
And then there's this priceless quote from Bill reported by
Twitter? Tweet? I know it isn't a Twat.

Lots of Bill Photos!

Suitable for framing. Suitable for drooling. Suitable for captions!

More at Fanpop.

Bill massages an octopus.

No, really. What the hell is this from??

Full of wonderful Shacting. "We....grow...up.......too soon."

I like the way he grabs the kid's hand and shoves it in the tank. Massage that octopus, Joey, goddammit!

Thanks, Anonymous.

Sulu Pour Homme

I wish I was joking. But you can get it at Comic Con.

Genki Wear (Booth #3744): The makers of the popular line of Star Trek fragrances are back with their latest and greatest product yet, Sulu Pour Homme Cologne for men. Sulu is the perfect cologne for the man who does everything, whether that’s cataloging exotic plants, collecting antique firearms, or piloting ancient helicopters and advanced starships. Get there early as they’ll only have 300 bottles on hand in exclusive Comic-Con packaging.

What's next? Uhura Pour Femme? Chapel Pour Cases Hopelesse? Chekov Pour Minions? (Previously sold as Essence of Davy)

Brad Paisley's mancrush

From The Star:

William Shatner’s last words on his 2004 album Has Been, “Sorry to disappoint you, but I’m real,” come from a song Paisley wrote for him.

So who was more exciting to talk to, the sitting President or the imaginary starship captain? “No offence to Mr. Obama,” Paisley says with a laugh. “I think if the president ever met Bill he would agree. I’ve never run into the likes of him anywhere. Truly a blast to be around, he has more energy than me — and he’s almost 80. ‘You want to ride motorcycles, let's ride motorcycles. You want to jump out of an airplane? I'm free tomorrow.’

“That's just how to live your life, man,” Paisley says.


He probably had an experience that was nothing at all like making love. OK, that was snarky. It's actually a very interesting article.

The question is: Did he do her? I vote yes. There are Significant Looks being exchanged.

Shatner in Love

Ganked from More_Shatner. No idea who the artist is but this is BRILLIANT. The inclusion of the Gorn is the best thing.

New Priceline commercial!

Bill's so cute. And the "mom" gives him a great look - totally overcome with his charm and hotness. Also starring Brian O'Brian!

After you stop laughing...

...caption this! Please!

Thanks, Spockoid, for sending this to us.

Ah, subtext...subtitles...sublime.

Thanks to those wonderful folks at Shatner's Toupee for bringing this poetry to our attention.

There's an app for that.

The Deadbolt Interview - Sorcerer's Exclusive: Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel Talk William Shatner

Bill is shocked--SHOCKED!

Government employee is one media that Bill has left unconquered. Or one (and perhaps the only) media that has resisted his conquest.

William Shatner, Governor General. Not.
"They know nothing about people and life in outer space."
Well said, Bill.

To make sure you do that, I've assembled all the posts in one long list here. All comments are Stacia's. GO!

Could This Be Genuine?

Now up for sale at the Heritage Auction Galleries:

Description: William Shatner's Star Trek TV Series Costume Wig. A brown hairpiece made for him for an unspecified production. Possibly worn by Shatner during the third season of the groundbreaking science fiction series Star Trek, which spawned the mega-successful franchise. Hand-tied and made from human hair, the wig includes the original MGM wig stock record card, reading "Stock No. 1244, Date 6-7-68, Original Player: William Shatner, Description: Brown - 1850" with the added notation: "Rented to F. Phillips - Paramount Studios 6-7-68/6-17-68." Fred Phillips was the make-up department head for the entire Star Trek series from 1966-1969, and he rented the wig for Shatner from MGM Studios (most likely from William Tuttle, who was the make-up department head of MGM). The wig has been restyled for photography, and is in Excellent condition. From The MGM Wig Archive. Estimate: $2,000 - up.

Bidding starts at $1000!

Your LAHB gals wonder if this is really a wig Bill wore on Trek - we always thought that (even in the third season) Bill wore a piece, and not a wig that covered his whole head. Maybe it was for something else? We've asked our pals at Shatner's Toupee for their analysis.

The only time Bill wore an actual wig in Trek was when he did that one shot as his brother Sam in Operation Annihilate! Are there others? Let's solve this, people!

P.S. from Kitty: Photoshoppers, a challenge! Can you put this believably on Bill's head?

A Fight Club We Can Believe In

From Floobynooby's 51 Conspiracy Theories That Don't Exist But Should:
18. In 1992 Patrick Stewart and William Shatner had a bare-knuckles boxing match in the basement of a sound stage in Hollywood, the result of which Shatner had to die at the end of Star Trek: Generations.
AT LAST! OF COURSE! How could it be otherwise?

OMG Bill Shills for the Kansas Lottery... Musically

This is the YouTube comment: "At WOW Music, we take on all sorts of challenges and turn them into this radio post-score using William Shatner. It came to us, voice only. He ad-libbed. We made it musical."

OMG, you guys. OMG. Bill is a MANIAC.
