Everyone Loves Free Stuff

*UPDATED: First and foremost, thanks to those that participated in this fun little contest! Personally, I've always counted TV for the Six Degrees game, but I actually like the idea of limiting it to movies, so I'll do that in future contests. Also, as a really needy single male, it was especially wonderful to read all the reasons you love me. Thank you. I love you too.

So, I literally put everyone's names in an actual hat and picked two randomly. The winners are....

I'll be emailing you two shortly to get your shipping information. Thanks again for playing, and I hope you guys want to do this again sometime!


Hey friends, with the recent release of the William Shatner Roast DVD, the folks over at Comedy Central have kindly allowed some of their goods to be given away here, so I hope you all participate!

1. Answer the questions below. Internet research is allowed, I suppose.
2. Post your answer by clicking on the 'COMMENTS' link at the bottom of this post. Those without Blogger accounts can always click 'Other' or 'Anonymous' when leaving a comment.
3. In your comment, leave your first name and your email address, so I can contact you if you win.
4. You have until 11:59 pm PT this Thursday, April 12 to leave a comment.
5. On Friday, April 13, I will pick at random two people from the commenters who have all three correct answers.

1. Which actor/actress in Freaks and Geeks did a William Shatner impression for his/her audition?
2. How are William Shatner and Rachel Bilson connected in six degrees or less? (i.e. play the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game, but with Shatner and Bilson)
3. How much do you love me?

The winner will receive the following DVDs:

The runner-up will receive just the William Shatner Roast DVD. Click here and here for some clips from the Shatner roast.

Anyway, hopefully, there will be more contests to come. In the meantime, read the directions above and leave a comment!

1. Samm Levine
2. William Shatner was in American Psycho II with Mila Kunis, who was a regular on That 70's Show, where Rachel Bilson played the role of Christy for one episode in season 6.
3. So much that I have four playlists created in your honor, that I started watching and recommending FNL soley based on your suggestion and that I comment on nearly every post, whether or not I have anything useful to contribute.

2. Where I come from it has to be movies

Williams Shatner was in "Star Trek VI" with Kurtwood Smith, who was in "To Die For" with Casey Affleck, who was in "The Last Kiss" with Rachel Bilson

I don't think she's been in many movies.

3. Enough to Facebook friend you.

Well if Six Degrees of Shatner has to be in movies, mine is:
William Shatner was in Miss Congeniality with Ernie Hudson, who was in Ghostbusters with Harold Ramis, who was in The Last Kiss with La Bilson.
Just in case. ;-)

I wouldn't have known the answers... but I'm leaving a comment regardless. And you KNOW I love you :)

Thoughts on Friday Night Lights?? Being an Austinite, I can tell you that when they were filming at the "hotel in Dallas" they were actually in Austin. Just 2 blocks from my apartment :)

2. Bilson was in last kiss with Marly Shelton. Marly Shelton was in Uptown Girls with Dakota Fanning who was in Sweet Home Alabama with Candice Bergen who did Miss Congeniality with Shatner.
3. I almost typed "a buttload" but then realized how that really sounded. So lets just go with a whole lot, mmkay?

2. (I hope it doesn't have to be movies, cause

1) Bilson was in the Last Kiss with Tom Wilkinson

2) Tom Wilkinson was in Piccadilly Jim with Sam Rockwell

3) Sam Rockwell was in Made with Vince Vaughn.

4)Vince Vaughn was in Dodgeball with Shatner

Note: Rockwell was uncredited for his appearance in Made. But, if you watch the movie he does have a noticeable speaking role.

3. You blog has been a great reasource. From introducing me to the Whites kids you know to tons of great music. In addition, your blog made me believe in the OC season 4 just when I thought it was over. It was a great season btw, so my love for you is very great.

2. William Shatner starred in several Star Trek movies and TV show including the next generation- Billy Campbell played (recurring role)Thadiun Okona on Star Trek the next generation-Billy Campbell guest starred on the OC as Carter Buckley for seven episodes- Rachel Bilson was a regular cast member of the OC!

3. I love you so much it hurts!

I hope six degrees works for TV shows and if it dosen't I think I deserve honorable mention for tying it in with the OC!

1. Samm Levine!

2. OK... movies...

Shatner was the voice for Ozzie in Over The Hedge, for which Eugene Levy also supplied a voice. Levy was in The Man with Samuel L. Jackson, who will star with Rachel Bilson in The Jumper!

3. Enough to have an iTunes playlist named after you. ;)

And enough to have started watching Friday Night Lights on a night when I should have been studying for my chem final, because you made it sound like the best thing since sliced bread and blogs about silly pipe dreams. Which, it totally is.

1. - Samm Levine

2. Rachel was in Last Kiss with Zack Braff --> Zack Braff was a voice in Chicken Little along with Eddie Frierson (a master of "additional voices") --> Eddie was a voice in "The Wild" with Shatner (voice of Kazar)

3. - enough to use Zack Braff in my "6 Degrees" and enough to never ask you to turn down the volume when you'd watch TV at 4am after work a few years back -- but not enough for either of us to be thought of as anything less than manly men!

2. William Shatner was on Boston Legal with special guest star Debra Mooney who was on Everwood with special guest star Melinda Clarke who was on The O.C. with Rachel Bilson.

3. So much that I not only brag to people about the fact that you and I are facebook friends, but also I went out and bought a body pillow like you mention so often and I named it Sonny. So much that I wore a three-hole punch shirt for this last Halloween and when people said, "Hey, you're Jim!" I said, "No, I'm Sonny!" So much that I once used your name in a conversation I was lucky to have with Josh Schwartz, and I felt that he was intimidated by your prowess.

Oh, and it's (you can find the address through our facebook friendship, or our mutual friend Cormac, or our mutual friend Josh Schwartz...we have more connections than Bilson and Shatner, so I should win).

It's too late for the contest, but I wanted to say that you're a stand-up guy with a great knack for writing, impeccable taste in music, and a kind of hang-dog cuteness that will get you far far far.

And that's how much I love you. I profess my love even with no potential for Shatner-related side gains.

I don't know any of those answers, and I don't really care about the contest in particular, but I wanted to say that I can't wait for your next music post. I'm also really excited to hear your thoughts on the FNL season finale, which I thought was excellent. It also had some great music in it. *wink, wink*

Oh, by the way, I don't know if you watched SNL this weekend, but they did this hilarious Digital Short that you would love:
