My TV implodes

James Tiberius Kirk (a.k.a. William Shatner) and opera's Frederica von Stade sang the theme from Shatner's 1960s series "Star Trek" last night creating a pyre of narcissism that consumed, not just the 57th Primetime Emmy Awards, but the entire history of television. There are no words that can describe the sight of a aging Kirk describe the mission of the Starship Enterprise with a backdrop of a video screen showing clips of him from 40(!) years ago fighting space aliens and kissing ET women. And then the operatic aaaah aaaah ah ah ah ah aaaaah.... my head was about to explode.
