We all get old
« on: December 22, 2009, 10:32:23 AM »
We all get old eventually.  Even Captain Kirk.

Actually it's not just a matter of getting old.  It's all those huge glasses of whisky he drinks every evening with Alan Shore, out on the balcony.  Man, I like a good Scotch or bourbon but I can't believe the Big Gulp those guys put away every night.

We certainly do.

Billy Connoly said it well - you expect the grey hairs on your head - but no one tells you about the grey in the groin! (not a direct quote) :o :o

When he gets beamed up to the Enterprise, they'll need to use two transporters.

He's still the best captain that ship ever had.

Shatner's downfall




I agree, he was the best Star Trek captain ever, though Picard was great in a different way.

Well he certainly looks upset in that beach photo.  Greenpeace must have tried to tow him back out to sea again.

Show some respect people,

He's been to outer space and that's no small thing in my book.
Of course, Mirfield's finest (Jean Luc) is the real deal.

Make it so, our kid !

Ole Bill isn't aging well but he's still funny as heck. I just saw that History Channel special "How William Shatner Changed the World" where they highlight all the tech innovations inspired by or predicted by Star Trek. He was a hoot in that.

And, surprisingly enough, some of Shatner's recent spoken-word recordings are very listenable. Do a Youtube search to check some of it out. "Common People" (with Joe Jackson) is pretty good. There's also a "duet" with Henry Rollins.
