Weirdest of Music: William Shatner – Bohemian Rhapsody

Usually, I talk about the week’s worst song in this post. However, I couldn’t bring myself to calling this week’s WoM winner the Worst of Music. So I’ve changed the WoM for this week to the Weirdest of Music. William Shatner is an absolute legend. He’s an award-winning actor and best-selling author. But he’s also made a splash as a spoken word artist. While he’s had utter flops like his covers of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and Mr. Tambourine Man, he had also done amazing covers of Rocket Man and Iron Man. However, his latest single is too odd to classify as good or bad. That’s why it’s our first ever weirdest of music. It’s the Shatner version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. Continue reading


Entertainment Link-Off: Total Eclipse of the Heart

Kicking off this entry is something from Jessica Alba’s latest photoshoot for Total Film. I haven’t heard much about her lately, but she’ll be appearing in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete which is slated to hit theatres on September 3rd!

After the jump Hitler parody videos are in danger, the return of Wikus van der Merwe and William Shatner does a duet with Taiwan sensation Lin Yu Chun! Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: It’s Madness

I was thinking of featuring Alison Brie on Saturday but she’s too good to pass up. Now go watch Community tomorrow night.

Good news: The AP says that Canada is going to open a can of whoop ass on the world in Vancouver. Bad news: We’ve been jinxed by the AP. (Associated Press)

Another look at Twitter from the perspective of someone who doesn’t have it or much in the way of advanced technology. Still, it’s a good read. (New Yorker)

Speaking of technologically related things, cell phones might be slowly killing you. (GQ) It’s a good thing that I never use my cell and pay $40 a month for that paper weight.

After the jump, super sizing March Madness, Super Bowl Manning-ness, and William Shatner awesomeness. Continue reading

The Humanoids: For The Win

There are lots of losers every week. I’m sure most people would include yours truly in that category. I’d imagine that I would classify myself in that category after tonight’s $50 million Lotto Max draw. (Though I’d consider myself a winner if I won a free ticket.) That being said, there are a lot of folks that had good weeks this week. Now watch in amazement as I try to drag them back down into the dregs of loserdom with me. Some people can pull rabbits out of their ass, I can turn gold to lead. Everyone has their own skill set.

Meanwhile, we’re back to being busy on the radio front. The next show is shaping up to be a solid one. Not an instant classic but an above average half-hour of talk for campus radio. Naturally, the Extra will be even better. All sorts of TV talk, love gone wrong and Christopher Walken’s poker face. That goes down on November 10th at 6:30PM. While you’re here or catching up on the radio show, drop by our new buddies at Lion’s Den University. They’re up and coming stars in the blogosphere and a regular stop when I make my morning rounds of the interweb. Continue reading
