In 1978, at a SciFi convention.

My son brought this to my attention, and I must bring it to yours:

William Shatner may not be the most talented man on the planet, but there is no question that he gives everything his all, and I salute that.

Or at least that's what I tell myself as I roll on the floor ...

I love that guy.
Surely he knows.
He's gotta know - right?

If you like to watch 1970s celebrities singing badly, you MUST check out this DVD!

Herve Villechaize ALONE is worth the price of this amazing collection!

I like that Beck sort of "sampled" this historic moment in his "Where It's At" video.

The best part: "...I'M A ROCK IT, MAAAN" (said with the usual subtle, tasteful and understated delivery Bill Shatner is best know for).

As I recall he did it on the Science Fiction Awards show.

A brief attempt to start a tv show ala The Oscars for
science fiction.

I saw it... My retinas have never been the same...

I show this on the big screen every year at my annual William Shatner Tribute - which usually features his sick 70s masterpiece "Impulse". Never fails to bring down the house.
