Shatner Lambasted Online for Missing Nimoy Funeral


Leonard Nimoy William Shatner

It was two days after Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday, that the family held a funeral for the late actor, writer, artist and beloved friend. The service - a private traditional Jewish ceremony, according to the New York Daily News - took place at an undisclosed location in Hollywood at 9am on Sunday. Without William Shatner.

It's unclear why multiple news outlets are making such a big deal out of the fact that Shatner's plane arrived a couple of hours too late for him to attend the service.  But then again, Shatner didn't make it easy on himself either. The Daily News report that the actor said Saturday that he was ditching the funeral to stay in Florida to attend a charity event.

Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears...William Shatner? The Worst Cover Songs Of All Time


Miley Cyrus William Shatner Britney Spears Jessica Simpson

News that Miley Cyrus is set to team up with The Flaming Lips and Andrew from MGMT to record a cover of The Beatles “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” wasn’t exactly received with a wave of enthusiasm. One Beatles fan replied to The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne’s Instagram announcement by saying “Sorry if I don’t want a washed-up Pink Floyd tribute band, and Hannah Montana, ruining one of the greatest songs of all time.”

Outraged Beatles fans may be jumping the gun a little, as we haven’t heard what the track even sounds like yet. However, these songs have been released and we can safely agree that they have produced some of the worst song covers of all time, most of them bordering on outright offensive.

Amazon Thinks Profits And Sanctions Fan Fiction Marketplace


Stephenie Meyer William Shatner Leonard Nimoy Star Trek

What’s that? A giant global corporation has ignored the creative integrity of the people it profits from in order to maximize gross income, potentially alienating future authors and jeopardizing their commerce? That’s right, Amazon is all-aboard the fan fiction train, next stop: avoiding tax on the profit it makes from it!

This means a fan of a book, like Twilight for instance, could write a story with Bella, Edward and Jacob, and sell it back to readers via the Kindle store. That is, if Stephenie Meyer signs up to it, which, considering the size of the brand, she probably won’t. It also means the latent homoerotic relationship between Star Trek’s Kirk and Spock, exhibited so often by completely normal fan fiction writers, can now be a nice little earner for them. Nice that.

It’s surprising just how many authors are signing up to let their work be taken by a fan and moulded into something else. Amazon reckon the "Kindle Worlds" project is a good thing for writers, as it is "an entirely new way to monetise their valuable franchises [and] it allows them to extend their worlds with new stories and characters and more deeply engage with existing fans".

Star Trek 'Phaser' Stuns With $231,000 Auction Sale


Star Trek William Shatner

A prop gun, made for Star Trek's Captain Kirk to use during a pilot episode of Star Trek has sold at auction for $231,000 (£151,000). It was estimated to sell for about $50,000, but achieved more than four times that including commission.

The gun was made for Captain Kirk, played by William Shatner in the legendary Sci-fi series. Built from wood and finished with blue metallic paint, it was commissioned by Reuben Klamer at the request of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Many gun props were used in the duration of Star Trek, but considering the design changed to the more familiar pistol phaser, this rifle design has become very rare, hence the lofty sale price. It was sold in its original, custom-made case and was accompanied by a signed letter from Mr Roddenberry to Mr Klamer, dated March 16, 1966. Anyone else think that The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper bought this piece of geek memorabilia?

Tina Fey Confirms She Is Not Hosting The Oscars Next Year


Tina Fey David Letterman Amy Poehler William Shatner

Tina Fey has reaffirmed that she is not up for hosting the 2014 Oscars ceremony on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' after William Shatner made the suggestion on the televised awards show.

The comedienne told Letterman that she had a 'sweatpants mandatory Oscars party' but admitted that while she enjoyed watching it, she wasn't willing to host the show at any point despite having hosted the Golden Globes ceremony earlier this year with her 'Mean Girls' and 'Baby Mama' co-star Amy Poehler. 'I'll tell you what - for a woman, just the amount of dresses that you would have to try on. It's a dealbreaker. I'm out', she told Letterman, reiterating what she first told Huffington Post in an interview after the ceremony. 

Asked how she felt about William Shatner's comment that she and Amy should 'host everything', she told the publication 'It's an honor to be 'Shatnered' before explaining, 'I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman - the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way.' Even after she was asked if there was any possibility at all, she was quick to disappoint her interviewer. 'I wish I could tell you there was', she said.

Oscars 2013: Seth MacFarlane's 'Boob Song' Kicks Off Academy Awards


Seth Macfarlane William Shatner

Seth Macfarlane opened this year's Academy Awards with a pretty bizarre skit that featured James T. Kirk himself William Shatner telling the Family Guy man that he was the worst host in Oscars history (He'd come back in time, you see). "This is Captain James T Kirk. Will you respond? I'm here to stop you from doing what you're about to do. The show's a disaster. I've come back in time from the twenty-third century to stop you from ruining the Academy Awards. Your jokes are tasteless and inappropriate and everyone ends up hating you," said the Canadian screen legend.

Shatner told Macfarlane he had sung an offensive song that displeased many of Hollywood's female stars, before playing 'the tape' from the Oscars telecast. "We haven't seen Jennifer Lawrence's boobs..Helen Hunt we saw them in The Sessions and Scarlett Johansson we saw them on our phones," sang the writer and comedian. "The point is, keep it classy," advised Shatner, before MacFarlane introduced Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on-stage for a music and dance number. "Are you sure you want to be the first Oscars host ever to get a bad review?" said Shatner, "You're disrespectful to many of the evening's nominees."

'Ted' star Macfarlane was a surprise choice to host this year's ceremony and has plenty to live up to, given Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's performance at the recent Golden Globes.
