William Shatner nimmt eine Metal-Platte auf

6 Comments

WHOOO!!! Damit habe ich in gefühlten 50 Jahren Fünf-Filmfreunde-Geschichte die so ziemlich WTFigste Nachricht und den damit einhergehenden geschichtsträgsten Titel für einen Blogbeitrag. In your face, bitches!

(Ich halte es wie Rob und füge einfach nur mal die Nachricht ein, weil es zu aufregend ist, um weiterzutippen!)

William Shatner is back in the studio working on yet another great big pile of Shat-mazing, Incredibly Strange music. It’s been over a week since Shatner first formally proclaimed Zakk Wylde’s mad skills via Twitter (“Best, Bill”), but our sources on the scene confirm that some big metal heavy-hitters have been engaged to play backup to Captain Kirk.

Peter Frampton and Mike Inez (who will be playing “Iron Man” with fellow Ozzy alum, Zakk Wylde) are definitely participating and our source claims artists slated to perform (but who haven’t done their parts yet) include Steve Howe of Yes, Ian Paice of Deep Purple and the god among men, Brian May of Queen. Supposedly it’s only a matter of scheduling that prevents confirmation (come on May, make this happen!). Finally, it wouldn’t be a space themed album without the space man and his self proclaimed Space Bass, Bootsy Collins!

(Caveat: some of these people might not appear on the final album. Reportedly, Shatner runs a loose (space)ship and sessions are fun and chaotic, nobody knowing how or when they’re gonna happen. Picture session musicians standing next to their iPhones waiting for the “Bill is ready RIGHT NOW” text.)

There are almost 20 songs slated for inclusion so far and all are to have a “space” or “flying in space” theme. Um, ok, that is EXACTLY the same as before, but who would want anything else from Captain Kirk?

Track list currently includes “Bohemian Rhapsody” (which May will not be playing on-no joke), a Byrds song, “Space Odyssey,” “Iron Man,” “Learn to Fly” and… wait for it… “SHE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE”! Brace for impact, that one’s got a chance of replacing “Rocket Man” as all time greatest Shatner moment.

    Muss her! Muss her! Muss her! Will haben!
    Shatner hat genug Witz für so eine Verrücktheit, und seit HAS BEEN ist ihm auch zuzutrauen, daß das Album *gut* wird.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
