The Shatner

I've always been a massive fan of William Shatner, even though I can't usually be bothered to sit through an entire episode of the original series of Star Trek. There is something about the man that is just so enigmatic. If you haven't checked out his recent album, Has Been, I heartily recommend it. You might think this is a joke. It isn't. It's really very good. Really! His rendition of Common People is our Friday afternoon office anthem. You can hear it here.

Anyway, I was amused / puzzled to learn that his next project involves reading the Book of Exodus, backed by a full symphony orchestra and 350 singers!! I'm not sure what I'm looking forward to the most - listening to this piece, or reading his interviews around the time of the release date! Bring on both...
