William Shatnerspeare

Yesterday's replay of Tom Power's CBC interview with William Shatner, on the eve of Shatner's 90th birthday, is a fascinating document worthy of transcription, perhaps as an illustrated gift book for anyone considering turning that age themselves. Kudos to Power for laying back, allowing the actor to speak his mind.

There are many highlights ("Slime seeks life!"), but for me the moment of transcendent surrealism came at 18:16, after Power asked Shatner about his earlier cancer diagnosis (subsequently reversed) and Shatner began an allegorical story about how he had his cat spayed, "and I can't bring Espresso's organs back."
