Well, now I've heard everything.

As you doubtless know by now, Cpt. Kirk has a new album, "Has Been" and it's honestly good. I'm almost disappointed. After rockin' his '60s record for years, I was hopeing his return to the studio would be an update of that style, something like, "Here we are are stupid!..and...courageous!" Naw, he's legit now.

But a remix contest? William Shatner? Ay ay captain, it's on at AcidPlanet. You might win ACIDPro 5, the software all us big-time mashers use. You can only use the 2 Shatner songs provided, and Acid beats and samples, but there's still been a lot of diversity in the entrants so far, everything from well-made hip-hop ("William Shatner Keepin' It Gangsta" - LOVE that title), to the "dub-western" of "An Ideal Woman Has Been", to thrown-together fart jokes. Yep, still boldly going where no man has gone before...
