Dammit Jim, I'm a Doctor, Not a Postmodernist!

Shatnerquake Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk


My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars


I'm not much of a Trek fan. There, I said it. Draw me, quarter me, tar me, feather me. I'm not much of a Trek fan, but William Shatner is one of the most bizarre and intriguing personages in media history. From Kirk to a bizarre musical career to his numerous appearances in an eclectic array of commercials, I've found Shatner incredibly fascinating. Now in Shatnerquake, Jeff Burk explores the ins and outs of Shatnerdom, sci fi mania and the Jungian mess we live in. When a group of Bruce Campbell cultists sets off a fiction bomb, every Shatner comes together in one place, in a mayhem filled pop culture implosion that would bring tears to the eyes of Seth Macfarlane and leave his cries for vengeance against Kahn echoing through the tomb of Ricardo Montalban for ages. Shatnerquake is more fun than a barrel of Shatnermonkeys drunk on Shatnerbrau

Fiction Bomb?

I once thought of an Information Bomb.

Interesting.

I imagine it would be more deadly and less Jungian than a fiction bomb.

We can only imagine how much more dudely and Freudian it would be if Tom Jones set of his "Sex Bomb."

I hate to think of a weapon like that in the hands of the Welsh. They'll set if off, then they'll steal all our vowels and replace 'em with Ys.
