Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

A video lunch collection for the ages, today we celebrate the 80th birthday of Studio City resident William Shatner!! From the Twilight Zone to the sexy reaches of Star Trek space, from dramatic readings of Elton John to musical covers of Pulp, from TV legal council to online negotiator, Shatner is as Shatner does and we love the $#*! you say. We salute you, sir. Live long, and prosper.
