I think Platonic information embedded in non-local holographic spacetime geometry may be considered transcendent.

Shouldn't that be "Twist and shout on
Mae West"?

Hmmmm . . . disappearing comment. I'll try again.

What, no Susan Boyle cover of Wild Horses?

Who thinks up these folks mangling the good music of my era, Uhura?

Hal said...

Shatner's greatest performance.

at ease, private.

Good God, Captain Kirk, what were you thinking?


Al The Retired Army Guy said...

Gee - Howard Dean criticizing Palin. As Dean hails from Vermont - you know how I feel, his comments are like calling the kettle black.

Al, Al, Al, Al, Al.


You really need to stop perpetuating the humorless rightie cliche. That Shatner/Palin riff is hilarious.

As you know, I have a great sense of humor. Really.

Shatner doing the Beatles is indeed hilarious (I'm guessing he was on acid at the time, but I could be wrong). For that matter, Howard "yeaahhh hahhhh" Dean criticizing anyone is equally hilarious. So yes, in that sense, the Shatner/Palin Riff is pretty funny.

As many times as I've heard about this facinating rendition I have never actually heard it. Thanks for allowing me to check that off my list. Now I must go ram paperclips in my ears.
