Belated apologies to the Mean Girls

Remember a few years back, when Multnomah County was actually advertising for a Klingon interpreter? We all laughed. But as it turns out, it might not have been such a bad idea. Check out this local band, which sings exclusively in Klingon and has been known to get into fisticuffs with the audience. What if Jeff Cogen wants to know what they're singing?

Google has a Klingon interpretation feature under language tools. You can have all of Google appear in Klingon, or you can insert text into the translator and it will translate for you. I suppose that will have to do in the absence of an actual interpretor.

Seen 'em live and lived to tell.


They're no Black Joe Lewis, but they're still pretty good.


Has David Wu booked them for his next town hall?

Can you photo shop the members of the city council into that photo? The tall guy in the back sure looks like fireman Randy to me.

That reminds me of the much-missed LA band the Spock Pistols, a Sex Pistols cover band (and a damn good one) that would come out on stage in Star Trek uniforms. From what I understand, the real action came from watching the couple dressed in Klingon outfits on the side of the stage.
