Ivan’s Site of the Week

This week’s winner is williamshatner.com.

Among other delights, Bill tells us how he sold one of his kidney stones for $75,000. I have not the words…


Bill Shatner in pre-girdle-and-toupé days, yesterday. Just where exactly is he planning to stick that thing?

As you know, I'm not too crazy about sci-fi, but there's another great contribution Bill made to the arts (no, it's not his appearance in those Geico commercials): he was the narrator in Peter Kuran's documentary on the atomic bomb program in America. If you have Netflix, watch it--it's memorable stuff.

Is it an indication of the difference in artistic greatness that one of Bill's kidney stones fetched more than all of Elton John's electric green fur coats and neon purple mohair suits in Elton John's...erm...closet?

Why Does Everyone On His Site Write Like This?
Ugh...
How irritating. Perhaps it's the same person attempting to make the website appear popular?

PI said...

I do think he has a sense of humour. Have you seen the ads he made in the UK. They make him look like a bumbling idiot. It must have been tongue in cheek.

Ivan the Terrible said...

Tongue in cheek. Yes... yes, that must have been it...

Better Writing Like This than speaking. Like this. All. The time with the random. Pauses.

He could have sold one of his turds, marking it as a "Captain's log".

Harry Hutton said...

marketing, I meant to say.

Ivan the Terrible said...

I bet Leonard Nimoy would have paid good money for that. Assuming he didn't just burgle it, as seems to be the relentless focus of this extremely disturbing site...

Desargues said...

Gosh, that is some weird shit. I'm only trying not to think too hard about how you discovered that site, Ivan. But those two persons behind it need to get out more. Way more.

Desargues said...

Which sort of makes me think--you link to a couple of gay sci-fi fans with high levels of computer literacy; a few months ago, you were writing about some gay computer game creators: do we detect a pattern here, or it's just a case of hasty generalization?

f:lux said...

What amuses me is that I couldn't find any reference to either of the two albums he's had produced (though, abit squemish, I confess I didn't look too hard...) Famous Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds cover version anyone?

(sorry about the ugly link above but I don't know how to do fancy bloggie stuff...)

Ivan the Terrible said...

Hasty generalization for sure, Des - you may stand easy. Do an image search for William Shatner (to illustrate a blog entry, for example) and many surprises ensue.

Anyway, I've written about whales way more often than gays, but I don't see anyone threatening to stuff a cork in my blowhole...

Ivan the Terrible said...

Hi F:lux. Bill's mistake was trying to sing that song without taking crippling doses of hallucinogenics first. Try reading those lyrics without 'em and you'll stumble over the words, too.

f:lux said...

But if I took the hallucinogenics I might enjoy the William Shatner rendition? Rather not take the risk thanks!

apprentice said...

Clingons on the starboard kidney eh, nasty! Wonder if he passed them, then he really would be taking the piss.

Ivan the Terrible said...

Don't think you'd be able to sit through one without the drugs, Fluxy. Swings and roundabouts again, isn't it?

And taking the piss is the name of the game for him, Ms A. He is an actor, after all - it's not like we weren't warned...
