The Captain turns 80 today, and on Facebook it’s Talk …like…Shatner Day.  A day to do your best Shatner impression.  Have….a….chat…in…halted…cadence or to just relieve some stress by steping outside and screaming KhaaaaNH !!!

These little events can be the perfect inspiration for  impromptu displays.  A quick check of the catalog this morning shows we have lots of material on our shelves either starring or written by the man himself, so if you’ve got ’em go forth, gather and celebrate Bill’s birthday with a quick display.

posted by jim who wonders how long it takes to sing happy birthday in the style of william shatner.


after my original post I found this classic.  enjoy.

    80?! I thought he was closer to my parent’s age.

    As a long time Trekkie (don’t even think of calling me a “Trekker”), I want to share a recent favorite YouTube video: Star Trek to Ke$ha’s Tik Tok:
