Admitting you have a problem is half the battle

Good evening. *ahem* I, um… well, my name is Lester…

Hi, Lester.

Right. Well, yeah…um, like I said, my name is Lester, and I’m a… I’m a… Shatner Fan…

Wait! Don’t go!

I mean, how could you not be one when he does something so cool as covering Common People by Pulp and has Joe Jackson singing with him. I mean, come on!

    You don’t have to be a fan of Shattner, I’m not…but this is hilarious.

    We have a St. Martin’s college here….do you think I’ll find Captain Kirk there, drinking a rum and coke?

    My ears are now turned inside-out trying to get away from the noise. Thank you oh so very much. </sarcasm>

  4. Bill says:

    I fill with shame, but – damn, it’s really good.

  5. Maria says:

    OMG! Too classic! The guy has a sense of humor! How can anyone find fault with that? ;o)

    You have to love it, don’t you. If Shatner decided to do a covers album with other artists, I would so be first in line for it.

    I might even admit to owning “Spaced Out: The Best of Shatner and Nimoy” which gives you double the fun! It’s amazing what those guys can do to classic songs.

    No, no, no! This is actually GOOD! Err… at least, I like it.

  9. Bill says:

    You know, I think the reason it works so well is that Shatner is forced to work with the rhythm of the song – he can’t just do his usual prima donna, “the Artist shall interpret this in his own idiom and at his own pace” thing. He’s not in control of the beat or the rhythm and this amazingly results in a shockingly good performance.

    He’s good! That was hysterical.

    Schattner is Cool?
