Feel dumb for not realizing sooner that Dirk Gently is Douglas Adams' Hercule Poirot. Cast of characters and their relationships is spot on.

Craziness ... So cool!
Stare at the colored dots on this girl’s nose for 30 seconds, then quickly look at a white wall or ceiling (or anything pure white) and start blinking rapidly. Congratulations, you just processed a negative with your brain! A question for you GSF, how is this possible?

Amazing color images of NYC taken by Charles W. Cushman in 1942 on Kodachrome film, which came out in 1935.

Some great shots in this album. It's admirable how little McSorley's has changed in 70 years.

Press Release about my one man show.

William Shatner on Broadway in
Music Box Theatre February 14 - March 4
Opening Night February 16

Television and movie superstar William Shatner will bring SHATNER’S WORLD: WE JUST LIVE
IN IT to Broadway’s Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street) for a limited engagement from February 14 - March 4. Opening night is February 16.

The two-hour show will take audiences on a voyage through Shatner’s life and career, from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and raconteur, known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on television and film.

Returning to Broadway for the first time since 1962, William Shatner says, “I've been pretty busy since I last played the Music Box. I've been refurbished; I hope the theatre has been too. My plan has always been to return to Broadway every 50 years. I can’t ask my fans to wait for me longer than Halley’s Comet, so I’m coming back. "

SHATNER’S WORLD: WE JUST LIVE IN IT is produced by Innovation Arts & Entertainment, Larry A. Thompson Organization, Adam Troy Epstein, Larry A. Thompson, Seth Keyes, and Josh Sherman. The creative team will be announced shortly.

William Shatner is an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, philanthropist and horseman. In 1966, he originated the role of Captain James T. Kirk in the TV series Star Trek, which spawned a film franchise where he returned as Kirk in seven of the movies, one of which he directed. He played the title role in the hit series T.J. Hooker before hosting TV’s first reality-based series, Rescue 911. He won Emmys and his first Golden Globe for his portrayal of Denny Crane on The Practice and Boston Legal and received four more Emmy nominations as well as Golden Globe and SAG Award nods. His interview series, Shatner's Raw Nerve, aired on Bio, and he recorded the critically acclaimed album Has Been. The Milwaukee Ballet performed “Common People,” which was set to songs from the record; the event is featured in the documentary Gonzo Ballet. Seeking Major Tom, featuring a number of heavy metal covers and songs by U2, Frank Sinatra, Queen and Pink Floyd, was released last year. Shatner has authored nearly 30 best-sellers. His autobiography, Up Till Now, was a New York Times best-seller, and Shatner Rules was released in 2011. His comic book series,William Shatner Presents is based on his novels Tek War, Man O’ War, and Quest for Tomorrow, along with a new title: Chimera. He has also been successful in another area - horse breeding. A dedicated breeder of American Quarter horses, he has had enormous success with the American Saddlebred, developing and riding world champions and has won numerous world championships in several events. He united his passions for horses and philanthropy with the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, benefitting L.A.-based children’s charities. He appeared on Broadway in A Shot in the Dark, The World of Suzie Wong, and Tamburlaine the Great. And no, there is nothing this man does not do.

American Express cardholders will be able to buy tickets beginning today January 11. Tickets go on sale to the general public on January 21 through and are priced from $125 to $37.50. The Music Box Theatre box office opens on January 30.

If you haven't, definitely take a look. It's breathtaking.

Genius! The quality of these images and the fact that they are in color is absolutely unbelievable. These were shot in 1910! Well worth a look ...

"... Between 1909 and 1912 ... photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) undertook a photographic survey of the Russian Empire with the support of Tsar Nicholas II. He used a specialized camera to capture three black and white images in fairly quick succession, using red, green and blue filters, allowing them to later be recombined and projected with filtered lanterns to show near true color images."
