Where's the value in NFTs

"You first saw the acronym ft show up in your tweets you got as far as not at four. And then you realize you're quickly going down the wrong path and trying to decipher it. Nfc stanford non fungible tokens now from there. If you're like me you thought it had to do with mushrooms. Maybe mario brothers. I don't know so then you read a paragraph of an article got bored or confused and moved on with the knowledge that all of your assumptions were wrong. But then you didn't actually replace it with any real knowledge okay. And so that was fine until you started seeing f. T. everywhere and you realize that maybe you should learn what it means and also you have a podcast taping coming up so here we are. And it's not that ludicrous bro. Stay with me all right. Mitchell mitchell clarke wrote a delightful article on the verge explaining t so i'm largely relying on that also wired new york times and a few other places. Let's go all right. Non fungible tokens are essentially a way that you can claim ownership of a digital thing. So think music art tweets yes. These are all reproducible. But so is a postcard of the mona lisa. So non fungible tokens exists on a blockchain at this point. Mostly a theory but others are getting on board and there are online marketplaces like open sea bull and fifty gateway where you can buy and sell the official ownership of the digital thing again. We're talking music video. Art animated gifts for artists provides a new way to sell your work and you can also set it up. So that you get a little kickback. Every time the nfc changes hands with a new owner. Lots nice so right now. You're like bro. Why would someone pay millions of dollars for an animated gif when you can just download it for free again. Why would someone bhai a monet painting for millions when you can get it on a mug from the gift shop for fifteen dollars so it all comes down to the basic tautology that some things have value just because someone decides it has value now for some people the value might be bragging rights to that end. You get to buy an nf t fred digital drawing of a cat because you are looking for a new way to show people. You are wealthy for others. Value might be about your phantom or support of an artist or musician. Kings of leon grimes dead mouse and many others have released. And fte's for music and art and for others. The value might be purely speculative. You're buying the nf t for digital drawing up a cat because you think it will rise in value as many other people agree. They want that authentic digital drawing a cat. And you're like seriously digital yes. Ten years ago. A guy named chris torres created the animated. Meam niane cat. You know it as the flying cat with a pop tart for a body and it's leaving a rainbow trail behind as soon as you google. It you're going to be like. Oh cat i totally know what you're talking about. So in february torres created an nf t version and put it up for auction and it sold for nearly six hundred thousand dollars following a last minute bidding frenzy other f- tease out there. William shatner is dental x ray digital baseball cards photos of lindsay lohan. And the first tweet. By jack dorsey just sold for two point. Nine million. don't feel too bad because the proceeds argos support a charity. So there's that and if t. Are definitely booming right now with probably more speculators than collectors and fans driving up prices but experts looking beyond the boom. See a great opportunity for a new way to guarantee authenticity. So for example nike already has a patent to create. Nfc's attached to shoes to guarantee their authenticity. Called crypto. kicks so when you consider that. A pair of air jordan twelve flu games are worth more than one hundred thousand dollars. Yeah i think. I want an fte with that purchase. Please and maybe you're still skeptical like a bunch of people in the comments of the articles. I read but seriously. How is this all that new and different. It's not like people buy sneakers art or baseball cards for the value of the materials themselves. They buy them for the aesthetics. The design the rarity as the new york times quoted. Marc andreessen. ben. Horowitz a two hundred dollar pair of sneakers is like five dollars in plastic. You're buying a feeling and right now the feeling that. Fte's is similar to one a stamp collector or baseball card collector or art collector or fashion. Or even a speculator might feel. It's that feeling that you are special because you own something someone else wants.

As Vaccine Approvals Loom, U.S. Funds A Back-Up Plan For Delivery

"When the time comes to vaccinate the world against cove in one thousand nine hundred and will there be enough glass vials and syringes to get it done. The trump administration appears to have a plan later. Today it's expected to announce that it will loan about six hundred million dollars to accompany in connecticut. Makes an injection device that can be mass produced. Here's dina ten of npr's investigations team. That's the sound of a covid nineteen vaccine backup plan. It's a production line in columbia south carolina. That's turning out a novel injection device that the trump administration is counting on to help deliver the covid nineteen vaccine as early as this spring. Npr's learn that later today the administration will add to its already hefty investment in a company called apogee systems america and extend more than half a billion dollars to its effort to backstop the country's covid nineteen vaccine program. I'm jay walker. And i am the chairman of abject systems and you founded another company. We've heard of right. yes i am. Best known as the founder of priceline dot com the founder priceline. The man who put william shatner back on the map is now producing a single use self contained injection device. That's designed to be an alternative to glass vials and syringes. We called a seret. It's a little bigger than your thumb and it looks a little like the single doses of eyedrops that you get from the eye doctor. It has a hypodermic needle. That you screw into the end like you do when you screw in a nozzle on a tiny bottle of crazy glue. Only in this case it would carry any number of approved. Covert vaccines walker said. It's that effort that the us international development finance corp. is funding with a five hundred and ninety million dollar loan. The us government is announcing a plan to support the biggest and fastest vaccine syringe filling factory up to three billion doses a year. That's billion with a b. Even though the injection device has yet to be approved by the food and drug administration which worries nicole lurie. She served at the department of health and human services. During the obama administration fit challenge that i see is that it is a completely untested technology. What testing of the applejack product has been done to ensure that the materials inside the epa jet containers don't interact with components of the various vaccines. The vaccine being produced by moderna for example needs to be kept it. Arctic temperatures walker says the epa jet devices can handle that but the fda has yet to certified that that's true but then you can say that about a lot of the projects funded by the trump administration to try to combat the virus. Tens of billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent to fund a roster of vaccines some of which are bound to fail. The point is to try and find a solution deirnesa wrong as the global program leader for medical devices at path which is focused on improving global public health in developing countries. And he's been tracking progress for a while and he says it's hired some people who are really good at pre filled technologies from our perspective. A low cost pre fill. Is something that we've always been aiming towards for low and middle income countries. He doesn't think the administration is making a particularly risky bet. I'm excited about what could be. I mean we could truly have a low cost scaled up pre filled system. That could be used for a number of different drugs or vaccines biologics. That could benefit low and middle income countries.

"CAM drawl joins us on skimmed from the couch. She needs no introduction we are geeking out, but we will introduce her anyway she is a Golden Globe winning actress and producer you know her from her role as Samantha Jones on sex in the city and. She's The star and producer of the new series filthy rich on Fox which premieres on September twenty. First, we are so excited because we need some new shows in this Cogan, Environment Kim. Thank you so much for joining us today. welcomed the skimmed from the couch. Thank you for inviting man. It's good to be here. I will just say I'm geeking out 'cause I've loved you since Mannequin. So this is just So we're going to start the first question. We ask every guest, which is skim your resume for us. Oh my gosh. You know when I first started as an actress I was desperate to get credits and now I'm trying to eliminate. Oh well, you know they say don't have any regrets and I don't because even from jobs that I didn't particularly feel good about in retrospect I learned something it starts off with, of course, theater credits and commercial credits I remember getting a job on a lob laws commercial this Toronto. Before I came to the United States studied in the United States but then I went back up to Canada. And I had a clerk in a grocery store and William Shatner, he was sort of the MC selling the product and years. Later when I did a star trek movie with him, I said I. I, know you definitely don't recognize me I was shocked in. Clerk. Needless to say that's not on my resume anymore but. At the time I was doing a lunch hour theatre Gig you know and was making about one, hundred, fifty dollars every two weeks. So those those little jobs meant so much because I could I could keep in the theater I keep working as an actress and I was very grateful and when I brought it up, he simply smiled and said I don't remember. At least he was on. Yeah. So walk us through what was your big break? How did you go from the shopping clerk to being able to pick and choose what credits you have I did a show called scruples. First of all, I did a Columbo episode, which was kind of it was the hot hot show to to watch never mind beyond and they were waiting for another actress who just had dates and I was there I was told later on I was the first choice but they wanted to have some unknown entity is as an actor as one of the guest stars. And it was a really fun little role on this sort of passionate young girl who was in love with his older man. In a she was kind of nympheas but was very soulful. I got that job and Dan they were auditioning for this movie called scruples and that was really got everybody excited. It was based on a judith krantz novel was very soapy and fun and passionate. Packed with all kinds of wonderful personalities and actors and it was about Beverly Hills and it was we shot in nineteen seventy nine even before the glove, the eighties and more is more I played this kind of trouble Starlit who is bisexual and not that they really touched on that. You know very gingerly of course at the time, but it introduced me to a different level of just struggling and making due to being brought in the room because I had done that and and people like what I've done. So that was a marked difference, and then shortly after that, I did have a film called tribute and ticket to heaven and a lot of sort of films. What's one thing that we can't Google about you there's so much out there. But like what's the one thing that people would be surprised to know I think one of the things that people are surprised to know very recently is that I I am now an American citizen I think a lot of people associate associate me with being American and being a New Yorker of course, but I have just taken the plunge. So I can vote

An Introduction to Star Trek: Picard

"We're GonNa talk about everything we know about the card series to date and talk a little bit about Picard the character and provide even a little primer as far as if you want to go back in and reacquaint yourself with the character we can give view a few episodes to pick from and of course if you have? CBS All access. You have access to the full star Trek Universe at least as far as the small screen green is concerned. And I'm really loving the chance to get back in here and revisit some of this show that I haven't watched it's probably been ten years since my last. Tng Oh gee rewatch so. It's nice to have it fresh in my mind. Yeah so just to clarify busy. I mean this will be the first of a few prepaid card a podcast. We're doing I would say people looking for speculation as to you know who are these new characters were seeing. What do the trailer show? I think it's safe to say we'll probably touch upon it but I think it'd be better. It'd be covered in its own separate pot castle in a couple of weeks. This is more so podcast for like. Hey Do you know who John Luc Picard is. Do you remember win. Romulus was destroyed. Who the hell seven of nine this is? Sort of like a cannon catch up to get people either reacquainted or caught up for the first time with what exactly these characters are bringing that we know of before we move forward with characters old and new I guess to start I mean before we even get into anything with with what we know of Joel mccower and the characters around him he jesse talked about manifesting. This so what are your thoughts when you initially found out because there are obviously rumblings blinks about it Patrick Stewart announced. I think in Vegas a couple years ago that it was a thing. We got trailers over the course of twenty nineteen. So what did you think about this actually becoming a reality Eh. Well this is like every fan's dream I think there's nobody out there that puts picard at the bottom of their captain rankings. Out He is. The most is the most fun I think the most layered of the captains the I think he's definitely the captain where there's the most territory left to explore. And and I think the place we left him was so tantalizing like whichever playing you WANNA say. We really left him on whether it's the future. Richard Echoes that we saw in the final episode of Star Trek Next Generation. Or whether it's where we left off in the last movie back in two thousand and two and and Mike I know you were in kindergarten or something so you may not be that I. I was in seventh grade. Thank you very much definitely not in the mood to sit down for two hour long star Trek movies at that point but you know uh not not a not a little bit of a baby in the bork incubator. A little bit more of an adolescent. That's an all right. All right fair enough. You knew the Star Trek existed in was a thing exactly. Yeah and I would say that at that point. That was also so what that was when we were nearing the end. I think we're already a couple years removed from the D. S. nine voyager double feature creature feature so ah it definitely was like star. Trek was in the atmosphere but considering that I was born during season three of next generation I can't say that Picard. Even from Star Trek Perspective was top of mind for my twelve year old brain. It's true and I think twelve is probably also the wrong age to start formulating your final star trek opinions. Even if you do grow up with it. Yeah that's very true unless maybe if you place my memory in a satellite that allows it to live out for the next thirty five years really formulate my thoughts on him. Yeah Yeah Well I love I love it. We when they play fast and loose with the human consciousness as we'll talk about when we start breaking down some of our favorite card episodes I think that will it became apparent. Yeah I mean this. I can't believe we're talking about. There's like this is crazy because not only is this a star Trek nerds dream come true but it also at least from what I had heard for a while Patrick Stewart got to the point. Where like he was didn't even want to acknowledge Picard? Like there was a rumor. I I think in Hollywood that like. Hey if you're working with Patrick Stewart on a project don't mention John Luc Picard of the next generation. Because he won't be happy with it. I think for a while he felt like actually actually bit contrary to your point. He felt like his character's journey had come to an end. He felt that book was closed. But I guess he's been giving interviews obviously in the past year and he said that getting to experience how much the next generation specifically meant to a hole for lack of a better term generation of people. I think touch them in a way that made him genuinely want to revisit the character which makes me happy and from what I've seen in terms of all the preseason press he's been doing he seems to just be having the time of his life life which makes me very happy. It's not necessarily dragging Harrison Ford onto the set of the force awakens. And you know making him go through the motions again. This is someone who is genuinely invested. Did in going back to the character are living in an era of peak nostalgia. I feel like everything is a reboot of everything nowadays Yeah I think. I think you're right about Patrick. Stewart kind of wanting to distance himself from card for a very long time and I think even at the point when he began playing card. I think I think the character played by Alan Rickman and Galaxy Quest. We all agree. That is kind of making fun of Patrick Stewart to some. Yeah even though he's supposed to be I think the science it's officers. so He's more of like the spock or type. I think the fact that this is this like like you said this. This master Thespian. WHO's been beleaguered to have to give off all of these over the top lines and also SCIENC- terms that don't make a lot of sense and repetition? That's just been what we all imagined. Jamais Patrick Stewart was thinking through. So yeah I mean it's very clear. What sort of his perspective isn't that also reflected in the character as well? We'll get a bit into it but obviously popcorn a huge departure from a captain like Kirk who had experience from the original series. And I think that's very very much due not just the different natures of William Shatner and Patrick Stewart in terms of the way they just sort of compose themselves. I think it's also it's a difference between tween how seriously the show took itself because I think star trek the original series probably didn't necessarily take itself super seriously as it was being formulated plated. It's very imaginative. Show to be sure but I think there's there's always like a little bit of self awareness and then I remember I was very young when Star Trek the next generation premiered and I remember being struck by you know little eight year old me watching this show thinking this takes itself much more seriously and it's kind of. It's a double edged sword because I think next generation was able to explore some themes that original series series star Trek attempted to certainly was groundbreaking for its time. But there's a lot more gravitas especially the early season episodes episodes where they're really trying to feel out exactly how serious they could be in the swing in the wrong direction a few times and I think you get you get this starship led by this very serious captain at times like I think picard strikes me as someone who's he's much more even tempered and he takes his position position like he's having a lot less fun in the very beginning at least yeah. It's sort of like this is a very loose sketch. But he served the bird to Kirk Ernie right where he definitely seems to be a bit more like fun free shirl ago sleep with some Orion women and look we'll definitely get into some adventures that picard had both romantically frantically and otherwise. But I totally agree with you. He walked in like vary by the books. He's very good. There's a reason why he has a maneuver named dafter him when he had with the previous starship that he had worked for but he seems someone who like you said was a very sobering presence and I think that really you not only set the tone for the ship but also for the show

"However, one more and I promise we'll move on because ever you want your. Thank you very, very relevant. Victoria writes in was divided and reactive personality written in assume she's talking about captain Kirk, the blatant womanizing. What made producers think that Kirk was a good captain? She says she prefers Picard which is okay, but she says, I loved the show in sixty nine. But nowadays it's not such a good look. And this goes to the question of whether Star Trek of nineteen sixty seven sixty eight sixty nine holds up today in twenty eight teen. What? What is my opinion? Yes. Well, I think it's a good storytelling. Some of the mores of today don't apply to yesterday. That's true treatment of women. Well, you know, I, I don't. I suppose kissing a girl is not. You're not supposed to kiss a girl. I, I think there's a great deal of. I'm not sure that's the objection, though. Kiss what's the objection? The objection is womanizing well, what does that mean that you appreciate women and wanted establish relationship? I I'm not quite sure what all that means. The rules and regulations today are certainly different from yesterday, but I'm not sure everybody understands the rules and regulations today of what meeting and and and having social meeting with people of who are strangers, not necessarily the opposite sex. But if you're meeting somebody for the first time, one of the rules and regulations here there, there seems to be some confusion and I'm not sure what they are. Well, the more. Damore as have changed. There's no doubt about it to me too movement has been extremely important in your industry show business. What's your take on the movement and has it been for the better for the industry? Because those mores as you say, have changed drastically since nine will absolutely have changed for the better the I have three daughters and three granddaughters, and I want them treated equally as as individuals. Absolutely critical in the me too movement is grand thing that's happening on the other hand, in the midst of a revolution, the traditional revolt is of any revolution are so ardent that wants the revolution is completed. The the regional people involved in the revolution are so ardent there cast aside and in so that the revolution can can. Continue and and mediate so that it it's accepted in a in the context of its time. And that goes for any revolution, whether it's a civil cultural revolution. So now we have the metoo revolution and it's leaving a gap that will be filled. But at the moment, it's not what are the rules? What are the? What are the methods of people meeting for the first time, whether it's on a sad or whether it's in a bar, whether it's on the street, he's are, who says, what to these are issues also that you think about a lot and you think about some of them publicly, you are just downright prolific on Twitter. You have lots of targets. One of your favorite targets is political correctness, and I just have to say for someone as truly busy as you and you are maybe the busiest man in America. I don't know where. Are you find the time to tweet so much well of your phone is right beside you and dictate on the phone? Oh, you had somebody else PECS away while you pontificate? No, the the the text? Oh, yeah. Speech to text thing in the phone is of ran, oh, when people read your tweets, they're actually reading the spoken words of of William Shatner. Not necessarily, but it's an aide but, but it does go to the question of of having so much comment on. Look, I understand the minutes in the hours of the day. It's easier phone is with you just takes a lot of your attention. Well, the does, but there's a reason behind all this keeps me in touch with my audience.

"The one listeners, your questions for William Shatner Garrett rotas on Twitter. Garrett wants to know, does William Shatner regret the way that his relationships with the rest of the Star Trek crew turned out seems like George decay and his documentary revealed. How much of a split there still is between William Shatner in an himself and Bill. You write in your book that at the end of his life, your longtime friend, Leonard nimoy wouldn't speak to you and you were confused as to why. And I think it goes to GARRETT'S question. Well, mister Toco is. I don't know what's the matter with him. You know, nothing I know engendered this lifelong hatred, distaste. I don't know what's the what his problem is. I've never said anything nasty about him and I, I don't wish to. He's got his own devils to wrestle with and that's for Leonard. He was the brother I never had and something went awry. I'm I don't know what it is. You don't know why your relationship with them went sideways at the end. It's no. Does it haunt you because you have so few friends in life and it seems like he really was friend and yet the end? Not really. Yeah, exactly. I would be. I have to say I would. I personally and I'm not you. I would be haunted by that all I am it it. It's curious. The last exchanges we had were were friendly. And wonderful. Then I don't know. He had a long illness. He was gradually losing the ability to breath. And maybe that's something to that. I don't know whatever it was we should hadn't been, but I had a long and fruitful experience with him and his family. And you know, his son is very friendly. I don't. I don't understand point in speculating them, well, Tom writes to us as well in wants to know about the very famous kiss from Star Trek that you shared with Michelle Nichols, which was credited with being the first interracial kiss on American television. Tom says that he read that producers didn't like the scene and wanted you to reshoot it so that there wouldn't be a kiss between you, but that you sabotaged it by crossing your eyes. And nobody noticed until it was too late and post production so that they had to use the now famous kiss what's store. That's a new one on me. Oh, no, no, no. The truth matter is there was a scene written where I kiss a beautiful woman as you happen to be of a different color skin, but a very beautiful woman and we kissed and it was, I don't know. There was the first interracial kiss or not, but it caused some fuss this. I should say, this was nineteen sixty eight or nine. Right? So so wasn't ago. Yeah, it was a big deal then then and there was some talk about how to edited, and I try to make it so they couldn't edit it out. So there was something I did, but you can always add it something or not show at all. What did you do? Is it true that you goofed your face the no, no, no, no cross my is through they I I don't remember. There was something. That I tried to do that made it contiguous that there was no gap with that. They can get a pair of scissors in which was on film at the time. But even that I think is Horry with the mysticism because editing is as a teric art and and you can edit almost anything. But I tried, I tried. I was conscious the fact they might try and at it didn't. Perhaps that really is the solution in. I did my best to to make sure that they could netted it, but I don't know whether that had any effect or not. Do you remember being surprised by the reaction to the scene. Well, I was aware that we were in an area that hadn't been done before, but. It was. It wasn't a big deal to me at the time. I'm Todd and you're listening to one a.. William Shatner of back on Star Trek and we don't have to spend our entire time on it, but it's very interesting the rather we didn't well on. I understand there's a long. I'm actually eighty seven and I've been an actor since I was six years old. So there are other subjects. Well, and there is one question..

"Listen up first on the NPR one app or wherever you get your podcasts. Susan wrote to us on Facebook. Susan wants to know which of the many hats. William Shatner has worn that has been most personally satisfying is at actor director producer, author musician, or maybe an equestrian hat Bill will let me just finish because it'll place to this recent question what I was expounding on before? Yes, live long and ellipse is saying yes to unity. So Decca records. Kurds many, many years ago. So what I make an album and I said, my premise is take great literature and write music to it and take the music of the time that had some good lyrics to and combined it. So I combined m- dozen formulas recipes. So live long and ellipse that ellipse is critical to the title because it allows you to choose opportunity, say yes, even if you fail, it teaches you a lesson. The semi failure of the first album has led me into other albums, other explorations of music and meeting musical people and understanding music more. And I love. I've always loved music. I have a more intrinsic knowledge of music, and I've met some of the great artists of music as result of saying, yes. Well, talking about your music, Corey sent us an Email Bill, Corey wrote William shatner's cover. Album has been is nothing short of amazing and horrible. Common people with Shatner spoken word lyrics is magic to opinions about two pieces of your work that you said yesterday, right. Well, I the word horrible, horrible, but the but magic is I'd rather be magic than horrible. Well, we have a question Bill Shatner from one person we know very well here on when a who is dying to ask you a few questions, but he's not here today. So he left you a message, hey, there Mr. shattner it's Joshua Johnson. The regular host of one, a very sad that I don't get to interview myself today, but I'm sure Todd doing a great job. Here's my question for you. Everyone associates you so much with Star Trek as do I and I'm grateful for that. I'm a big Star Trek fan, and I've always loved you in the TV series in the movies, but if Star Trek had never come into your life, how would your life be better? And how would your life be worse? Bill. Well, Joshua, I speak Todd, which is both the magic and horrible. On an, I'll take them both. Exactly. How would it be different? You asking me to speculate if if lightning hadn't struck me, how would my life be different? Well, I still continue to play golf. If lightning hadn't struck me the the fact that I was in the original Star Trek has allowed me to be on a great program on NPR and talk about the things that I'm doing this year, let alone what I did last year, the albums that book the tours that I'm doing this year, which you can get a hold of if you go to William Shatner dot com. I'm doing a plethora of things that any entertainer would be loving to do, and I'm doing it because Star Trek happened in my life. If Star Trek hadn't happened in my life. I, I'm an actor. I was really popular before Star Trek. I was at my name above the lights on Broadway in television and in movies, so who knows what would have happened? I do have a talent that that has taken me this far. I'm sure something else would have happened. Well, you still would have been. You still would have been a work Hollick that's for sure whether Star Trek had happened or well work is I love what I do. I love the problem solving of writing and acting and directing, and and all the other end music and and riding horses. And these are problems. How do I stay balanced? What do I do with my hands on a horse? What's the best way of telling the story with a film, how best to to write a novel, how to solve this character and what he says and what he does. These are all wonderful things. I love. Work at. So I'd be doing something related and perhaps I would still be on NPR and we've been hearing so much from you..

"And that's what makes me want to go back to that childhood. You trio because that's that's one heck of a statement from an eighty four year old man. You know, I. I, I was brought up Jewish home. We lived in predominantly non-jewish area which and they puzzled over what is. Who is it you and what is it you and. And it was inexplicable to a lot of people, although in how the religious so close. So it set me apart and and I had difficulty in in these public schools where kids, Tom may, and I found myself struggling fighting each day and and struggling with my identity and being made to feel embarrassed and ashamed and separate at times and definitely separate. And that's a feeling that you write followed you as he became an adult. Well, let's talk about acting and how you got started. Even in the days before Star Trek n beyond your career has spanned summer stock being on the road sleeping out of the back of a car to get work plays that ran one night in enclosed. Shakespeare hit TV shows, but you talk a lot in the book Bill about the power of saying, yes, when you're an actor. That when the phone rings you just say yes. What? What does that meant to you throughout all these years? Well, the title of the book is live from the line that one of the characters Spock said in in the television show as a greeting live long and prosper. I chose the title live long and dot dot dot ellipse because that indicates a balancing a moment of of pause live long and and then when he gonna do live long and hide live long and before, right live long and grasp opportunity and and to your definition of success, whatever that might be trying to cheat it live long and and established relationships in love and contribute to the world around you. That ellipse is. Is a pivotal part of the title, and that's what I write about and saying, yes, has been your path, I guess, to the way that lips was completed on the show which is which is for that was for me. Yeah. And one of the premises of the book is that we are all so different to my growing up obviously, isn't what you went through and that fashion your filters of how you accept information and and emotion as what I have to say about myself, very, definitely isn't what you say about yourself and might be completely different to to anything you you think about. If I say the word love to you, it could mean infinitely different things in a does to me. So we already are having a problem in communicate. And so the book as says, here's what I did in my given situation if it applies to you great grasp it and, and maybe ah, learn something from it. But I have no misconception misconception that that I have something of value to offer you for me when the opportunity was there. I said, yes, whether it was to to adventure along a new path in life or whether it was to go to the movies. Well, you said yes, to Star Trek, of course. And all of American knows that you said yes, to a lot of acting jobs when you were a young man and as your career progressed, here's something else. I've always been curious about this William Shatner for a long long time ever since I was a kid because you said yes to this in nineteen sixty seven. Picture yourself. Above on a river was dancing threes, morally sky, that's loosen the sky with diamonds and a relatively young, William Shatner. You said yes to that, and it's a project that I think some people have wondered about over the years. What was going on there? Well, record company, a popular record company at the time doesn't I believe, doesn't exist anymore. Decca records said, what can make an album? Wow, making album. Of course, I have a a premise and the premise was to take because I was. Actor working in Shakespeare, and I had a feel for the rhythm of Shakespeare and poetry. I loved poetry and and the music of the English language. And I, my premise was to take famous pieces of literature, have new music written to it and segue into a piece of literature of the day, which was the lyrics of song. So I would combine a piece of literature that had music written for it and segue into a song that already had melody and the lyrics sufficed something I could do..

"Org slash mentioned it. Hey, Tim, hey, Dominica all week long. Brad. Kavanagh will face his Senate confirmation hearings. Yeah, he's President Trump's nominee for the supreme court, and they're going to be a lot of questions about how he could transform the supreme court for generation. The NPR politics podcast will be following those hearings and we'll hop in the studio every day to break down what you need to know. William Shatner joins us now from NPR studios in New York mister shattner. Welcome to one a. thank you so much. It's a pleasure to be here and it's a pleasure to speak with you. Mr. shattner you know, I read your book and I have to say the first question I had reading it. You're eighty four hundreds of TV credits movie stage albums, dozens of books, fiction, and nonfiction. Why memoir? Why now are you done? You're not of this amendment are mean you're dumb. I don't know. Sometimes seven. You're old write a memoir. Oh, you certainly. You certainly can. But you know, while I was seven years old. I wrote this memoir and I can't wait till I'm ten. I mean. So here's a book that I wrote offering an opinion on various things and and done somewhat reluctantly or shyly because I'm not sure that my opinion is valid for anybody else other than myself. But in a way I've written it for my family. Well. I call you Bill by the way, William Shatner. Elise, oh, I can call Utah. Yes, absolutely. You may. Thank you. We'll Bill there is a feeling I found of catharsis. In this book. There's a there seems to be a freedom that comes from being honest about a lot of things, even some uncomfortable things and some maybe some recognition of times in your life when you weren't as honest as you could have been, you're being more honest now, at least in the pages of this memoir was, was that part of it for you? Well, probably you know, we hold faces up at various times on various places, and those masks are part of our defense, and we take them down when we no longer think we need a defense or we're unaware that we needed defense their reasons for presenting a different personage to different people. And here in this book I, I've tried to. To pull down the defense mechanisms and and be there as I am as I think I am masks are always issue, I think for for many actors anyway, both figuratively end and frankly, re really Todd everybody. The lady in the house taking care of a baby of the woman executive of a high of fluting company Amandiya ditch. We're all we all hold different defenses towards different people. You write a lot in this book about your relationships with your parents with your wives, various co stars over the years, but you say that you actually don't have a lot of close friends and never really did. Why do you think that is. Well, in the beginning of my life, I was in s- in a strange world that I didn't completely encompass. And then as I became an actor and the and the per- the peripatetic world of being an actor one moves around a lot, both location wise and and mentally. So I think that contributed to the fact that permanent relations were few and far between your father sold suits in Montreal. Your hometown. And what about your mother? Tell me a little bit about your folks? Well, my mother was a traditional eighty of her time who married and had children kept the house. My dad was hard work. Working a man who didn't have an advanced education but was highly intelligent and and and very smart, very, and the the key figure. They're the key words. There are hard working and so ultimately, yes, he did sell clothing in Montreal, but then the ultimate we made some clothing, so he made immense suits and and sold them. What about your mom? She stayed at home and and and kept the house and was social and and brought up three children. I have two sisters, one younger one older, and yet you right. And this is a quote from the book. William Shatner. Loneliness was the hell I lived in as a child, and that is extended my whole life..
