Spherical Stew and Furry Bill.


In the midst of our hiatus, something came along and we really couldn't resist (even Blogger's ghastly mandatory new interface - on which we compose our posts - failed to entirely sap our enthusiasm)...

Patrick Stewart's Twitter profile picture:


Bill Shatner:


Side by side:


To quote Bill Shatner himself (in Airplane II) "Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes..." !

  1. Big deal... All this proves is that Patrick Stewart is bald, not that Shatner wears a hairpiece. How much more desperate can you folks get? Go back into retirement. NOW!

  2. Oh the symbolism... Stewart embracing his baldness - look at me you multi-colored balls - *THIS* is what *NOT* having hair is... Contrast that with Shatner - looking to distract as much attention as possible from his own false hair by surrounding himself with piles of false hair, with each trible reducing the proportion of false hair on him.

  4. I think the only thing Patrick Stewart is trying to say is that he wants to be guest star on The Big Bang Theory.

  5. This blog is hideous with all the fake hair of Shatner. It is suffocating. Get out and breathe some fresh air where there are no toupee glue fumes.

  8. It's just a bit of light hearted irony. keep your negative comments to yourself when people are just trying to share the love.

    Please dont think for one moment, that my comments on this post, was in anyway an insult, too the wonderful work of shat toup. I really do take my hat off too him, for his hard work. And i was just saying, that this was the one in a 100, post that i personally, did'ot like, but i'm very pleased 99% of the time....so please shat toup, keep up the great work, its gave me, absolutely hours of touptastic fun.

  12. shats own real syrup - that's OK, we know what you meant. liv long was just being a __. The real story, though, is that one of the shat toup blog authors is going in for a multiple-session hair transplant. He will need time to recover and heal.

  13. Hello, Shatner's Toupee!
    I recently came across something that I think you may be interested in. I follow Mr. shatner on twitter, and today he replied to a person who all but accused him of wearing a toupee, which shatner, of course, laughed off, but I think it's significant that he would even reply to such an accusation, allowing his 1 million plus followers to read it for themselves. Unfortunately I lack the technological know-how to post a link, but hopefully someone on your end can find it.

    Thanks

  15. When/if this site comes back one of the first things that should be addressed it what is going on at 2:44 in this video,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hARDXYz2io

    is that some sort of translucent toupee, very thin actual hair or what?

  18. The Trouble With ToupeesNovember 5, 2012 at 10:27 AM

    Where art thou, oh grand teacher? It was prophesised that you would return in a higher form.

    I have to tell you that in your absence some of us have sinned. They have gone against the teachings of the almighty ‘School’. Do not punish them, for they know not what they do. They merely lacked the guidance to show them the true way – the way of the toupee (hey, that rhymes).

    We believers had such plans, so many dreams. We thought we would be able maintain and carry on the fine work that you had begun; instead, all we did was bicker between ourselves. We resorted to name calling and downright nastiness. Forgive us; we were weak, feeble and so easily lead.

    Many were weaker than others and so succumbed to the ‘dark side’. They are at this very moment spreading their malevolent ramblings, what I have begun to call ‘Anti-toupism’.

    We await your homecoming with baited breath. Show us the way once more, oh merciful and wise ones.

  19. Shatner really does not wear a toupee. The ST bloggers' current silence is more eloquent than anything they scribbled out before. Let it be. There shall be an answer, blowin in the wind, my friend, and it is not Shatner's toupee (cause he don't wear one).

      Sadly back in the real world, shatner's hair went with the late 50's....honestly i would so love you to be right!....truth is people either say, shatner's no bald, coz thay cannot handle the fact that he is, or thay cannot handle the fact, that shatner, eats drinks, and sleeps like the rest of us.....and one day there will be no more shatner.

  20. Even before this hiatus was announced there was a clear trend; 183 posts in 2009, 118 in 2010, 55 last year, only 20 this year, discounting the one announcing whats starting to look like a permanent break... Where else will I go to obsess over William Shatners hair?!

      A great point.......there is certainly a lot more to say, about the shat, and sure it looks like this is a coded goodbye, in a way.....sad to say, in the last 3 months i have been doing my own, and very personal toupee work......all i can say is there's a hell of a lot more photos of a pre-toup shatner out there....i wish i had noted them......silly me, but thay are there.......but i hope i'm wrong about this site, and that its up and running once more, sooner rather then later.

  21. I'll take the contrary view that this site is kind of passe at this point. Cataloguing the toups of years past had some goofy entertainment value, but now that its been done, enough. The current toup style Shat wears is mostly such a reasonable approximation of hair that one can view it as real or fake or ignore it entirely, it's up to the individual. One could compare it to writing about Tony Bennett's current hairpiece: why bother?

  22. I strongly disagree with the above post, it reminds me of when music or TV reviewers say a certain artist/show/album/franchise is "no longer relevant" & I always think TO WHO?!? The general public?!? Cos I wouldn't think the general public are any more or less interested in Shatners hair now than in 09, when this started, just a select few strange people. Perhaps not necessarily always the same few, I didn't discover this until just before the hiatus... And to me this site is much more than just a catalog of images of Shatner in bad wigs over the years, lots of in depth analysis and inferences about Shaters psychology that could arguably be all in the head of whoever writes this blog. Most interesting to me personally is the transitional late 50s era, with the hair combed backwards to fill that bald "crater", which I likely wouldn't have noticed on my own but now seems obvious. Before I discovered this site I knew nothing about Shatner except that he's Captain Kirk - I first found it thanks to my own paranoia about going bald that's baseless according to everyone else - but I've learned how prolific he was/is, plus come to appreciate his unique charisma, especially given his age, I think I'd now regard him as my favorite actor. Though thats not saying much as I don't watch much television. I'm rambling, so the main point I suppoe is that if this blog is ending couldn't it least have a grand finale, go out with a bang etc instead of just a picture of Patrick Stewart in a ballpit?!? I still think theres lots to be covered, perhaps not relating to the current hair though which seems "stable"

    The break started the 24th of august, so its coming up to three months, there seems to be no news from shat toup yet......? So unless he answers soon, you can pretty much say goodbye, to shatners toupee as a site.....and the longer it goes on the less likely it is to ever come back..just a thought.

  24. You stopped talking about me?That makes me sad.There was affection here...I felt it...

    Oh dear.....still no reply from shat toup......is'ot it time, that someone wrote an obitury on shatners toupee, the best, most fun website on there, for miles around......witty, well written, informative, smart, and well observed! Sadly for all us interested, in all things wiggy, we all fear it is not coming back......and no there never was some great big building, thats soul purpose was to look into bills toup, a great thought but what a huge waste of money. Nevertheless, i have enjoyed looking, at this hughly entertaining website for the last 2 years, and will check back, every so often, for "old time sake" and maybe in the hope, that this dear friend, is back, but sadly like the great british sir patrick moore, it is'ot coming back! So bye shatners toupee 2008/9-25 september 2012 r.i.p.

  26. There, there SORS. Everything'll be O.K. Just buy your own toupee, and pet it like a little kitty cat while reading the old posts from Shatner's Toupee. There's an anonymous poster here that does this every day.

      Thanks....lol i dont think i need to go, quite so far as that.....believe it or not there's is a life outside, shatners toupee, however i am seeing a consellor at the moment, whose helping me to de-shatner my life. This includes, sending back a toupee of his, that he droped on the set of tos, back in 1968, and a 1972 book called: how to shatner your life. Well i was only 10 then, and was young enough, to look for a role model, there you go....lol

  27. I am really pissed off at you shattoupblog for keeping us loyal fans in the dark. If you don't want to run this blog anymore then pass the reigns to stallioncornell. He seems keen on keeping the flame burning.

      Absolutely......it seems he cannot even be asked, to make any type of comment! I must admit, too being a bit cheesed off by this.....being honest, there are loads more photos out there, of a non toupeed shatner...ve seen them! And yes i think simon, would be fantastic.....i saw his post on shat, in the six million dollar man, absolutely outstanding! Well if shattoup is gonna come back, wow its gonna have to be one hell of a post.

  28. I wonder if shattoupblog might not have received some sort of "cease and desist" letter or other legal threat from Shatner's lawyers.

    1. You may be right about that! I mean shattoupblog did out the fact that his toups are made by katz. I really think he was trying to pass of his katz toup as real hair for the past decade.

  29. Shattoupblog has been on the run for the last several months. A fugitive forced to hide in the dark shadows, where ordinary people would fear to tread. He had a "shoot on sight" order put out against him by U KNOW WHO.

    Mmmmmmmmm. Two things may have happen, both i admit fairly unlikely, but here i go.....i think either, shattoup has lost interest in shatner, or he cannot find any more updates (even i have found updates.) as i said both of these quite unlikely......but worth a thought.
