A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Speaking of Fine Arts


Via Firedoglake comes this glorious offering. It's justified because it relates to "24", the Republican fetish for torture porn, the (also very Republico-Conservative) inability to tell truth from fiction, and of course, Canadian screen talent who all seem to have been hewn from the same log--perhaps the Captain's?

SimShatner: The William Shatner Acting Simulator.
Might I suggest just playing with this acting simulator instead? It's low on the torture porn, but it does satisfy the wooden acting criteria completely. (Okay, I admit it. I've been waiting and waiting for a reason to link this up. It's laugh out loud funny.)
Youmust; GO. Click. Now!

Personally I like hitting buttons Blue 2, Red 2, Green 2, Yellow 3 and Red 2. No special reason. Slashfic fans make that Blue 1. Reality slashfic fans make that Blue 3.

The william shatner torture porn machine? Did I read that right? It's a stick isn't it?

Wm. Shatner Torture Porn Machine ... Somehow a strangely attractive idea.

Sorry? No, no. The SimShat is all about paying homage to a fine Canadian actor and the role for which he is most fondly remembered.

Canadian actors include both Donald Sutherland (a fine actor) and his son Kiefer, who is apparently capable only of looking vacant and exhausted while prentend-killing actors portraying potential terror suspects.

Thence the Republican torture porn link. GOP-ites are known to reference the (fictional) TV series in serious political discussion.

Usually while dodging mention of the words "Abu Ghraib" and "Gitmo" alongside the t-word.

"Fondlingly" remember, that is.

I bet if they'd asked him, he'd-a done the voice for this.
