williamshatner_narrowweb__300x436%2C0.jpgI am not the sort of person who watches “Star Trek,” not that there’s anything wrong with those people (“Welcome. Nanoo. Nanoo!”). In fact, I’ve only seen one of the “Star Trek” movies - the one with campfire songs or something, and even then I spent most of it making out. I can’t tell you what happened in the film, but I can tell you that Charity Pohnka wore a white bra. (Note to Trekkies: Second base is awesome). That doesn’t mean I haven’t developed an appreciate for William Shatner, mostly from “Boston Legal” (Denny Crane) and his phenomenal Ben-Folds produced album.

Anyway, I suspect I will, ultimately, force myself to watch the J.J. Abrams “Star Trek,” if only because of Simon Pegg and, well, I like the Abrams. Sadly, Shatner will not be making an appearance. With respect to that, J.J. Abrams got a little snarky, I thought, saying basically that Shatner wanted more than a cameo, but that he didn’t have a way of writing him in, what with the fact that Shatner died (isn’t the new “Star Trek” a prequel?). Anyway, the whole “Star Trek” thing is over my paygrade, so I’ll just let you listen to Shatner tit for his tat. Shatner is kind of senile, but he’s all kinds of awesome.
