    Captain Kirk

    I was NNC-ing this morning up on Mulholland Drive. Riding along the spine of the Hollywood Hills when I came upon a six pointed buck at the side of the road. I sat up - I didn't want to ride by it and startle him to the point where I would have that entire rack of horns impaling my liver.

    There was no one there cept me and him. He looked at me, sniffing at the wind. I felt like Helen Mirren in "The Queen". I said to him, "C'mon now, run along." He clip-clopped across the road in front of me and then trotted up the hillside.

    I get back up to speed and cruise down Mulholland. About 100 yards further on there is a pedestrian walking up the other side of the road. He looks familiar. Yes, yes it's him. The Shat! William Shatner.

    I am immediately transported into a reverie. Back to my childhood watching Star Trek re-runs with my brother. Lt. Uhuru slinking across the screen. Spock raising one eybrow, perplexed. What do we do with these tribbles?!?!

    The Shat looks at me across the road. I smile and take my hand off of my handlebar to wave at him.

    And then...

    and then....

    ulp!

    I do the single worse thing anyone can do to the Shat. I couldn't help it. My brain said "No don't do it!" but my deviously errant lips would not obey. They silently formed the words "Captain Kirk".

    I give him a friendly wave but the damage is done. He scowls at me and gives me a curt nod. Why oh why was I borned with such moreonic lips!

    Mulholland Drive ain't no walk in the park. When I visited my kid out there, last year, he gave me the whole scenic tour. Mulholland seemed like the kind of road where you'd spend a lot of time out of the saddle in the 25. Not very much like Illinois.

    Speaking of Kirk-

    Have you seen the commercial with the Shat in his Trek outfit in ads for Direct T.V.? Too funny. I like those ads, but, when he gets all up about Chekov and the shields, awesome.
    I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con-men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull-dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, sh**-kickers, and Methodists!

    If he can't just enjoy that as the most memorable part of his (ahem) acting legacy, then he needs to get over himself!

    You done good, IMO.

    I dunno, he was pretty sharp & funny on his Comedy Central Roast. To the comics: "Who are you people? What have you done? I'm William Tiberius Shatner!..." and like that....check teh YouTube for clips. He spent some time sleeping in his car after StarTrek tv was long over. He toughed it out and has had a pretty nice comeback.

    I've seen him in town at a local cafe. Here are some other faces currently appearing at my morning coffee fix:

    That scowl that the Shat shot at me was totally Denny Crane. 'Cept it came from a much deeper and darker place. Oh the horror! Oh the humanity! That look just about melted my aluminum bike into the pavement.

    Heh- you should have offered him pie. He looks like he enjoys pasteries and pie quite often.

    Agreed. But I think most actors want to be seen for what they are doing NOW. I bet a "denny crane" would have gotten a big smile.

    He actually has had a very, VERY good acting career. Cult tv star, movies, tj hooker, and now boston legal. That is a long, long career.

    BL should do a spoof of trek. They have kirk, odo, and quark. The temptation to do a dream sequence must be very strong for the writers.

    Hey,
    You know what, he's lived in the US for so long, I don't think Canada wants him back.
    Now you and Mapei, however, your Canadian passports are in the mail
