has been
believe it or not, I just heard one of the new William Shatner songs (from the aptly titled "has been") on the radio.

I have a strange reaction to seeing Shatner these days...I know that he's not exactly up for an oscar any time soon, and the movies he's done recently are invariably striaght-to-video crap, but for some reason I really get a kick out seeing him on. If he pops up unexpectedly somewhere, I actually cheer. Even those travel website commercials. For some reason, it all amuses me, even though logically I know there is no good reason for it.

I have the same reaction to his new songs. I know it's crap, but I sit and giggle and bob my head like an idiot and like it none the less. Not enough to actually go spend money on it, mind you, but like it.

Go play one of the songs (I recommend "common people"), and tell me some part of you dosen't think it's cool, even if it is atrocious.

Actually, I think all I want is someone to tell me that I'm not the only one...


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
