Burning Out His Fuse - Out Here! Alone!

August 21st, 2006 by Alex

It’s a nice day out. I’ve just had a really good cup of coffee. I’ve got a bagel with lox and cream cheese. My week’s starting well.

I figured everyone’s should begin so nicely. To that end, I figured I’d dig into the archives for the video YouTube was, in my mind, born to screen.

William Shatner, everybody.

In all seriousness, though, I think this is part of the fun of what we talk about here at SMITH. William Shatner can get up on stage and do this sort of thing and have it be a cultural icon, have millions of people watch it, have a cult television show give it immortality - and yet there are probably thousands of people out there who deserve all that just as much. Some of them may not be as good as Shatner. Some may be better. Some may just be different, have their own totally unique, totally characteristic voice, and for years we’ve been missing something by being shut off from those voices. Today, we can hear them.
