Yeah, I know that the title of this post in no way reflects the contents, but Iâ€™m currently watchihng The Daily Show, and host, Jon Stewart just made this comment in relation to a story on which he was reporting. However, what I want to talk about happened last night, with his guest, Tom Selleck, which was just as hilarious.
This electric car is wicked-impressive. You really need to check out this video.
If a little guy in a home garage can make this, what should all the big car makers be doing in all their giant labs? If this isn’t absolutely pathetic! What have all the Detroit automakers been doing! What a joke!
So, what were you doing Wednesday December 3 at 5:00 P.M.? If you were like many of the fans of Colbert Nation you were (apparently) downloading Stephenâ€™s A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All on iTunes. Seems that on both Monday and Tuesday and nights Colbert called for his fans to storm itunes and download his album at precisely 5:00 so as to knock Kayne West out of the #1 slot.
Well, the really funny part comes in when Kanye West Posted this note on his twitter site.
Meanwhile Kanye slipped down the charts as both Britney Spears and Akon issued new albums debuting at #s 1 & 2 respectfully. So, while Colbert isnâ€™t #1, he now sits on the chart higher than West.
Ya just gotta love this stuff. Personally, I canâ€™t wait until tonightâ€™s show. Oh yeah, in the mean time, thereâ€™s this…

Last night, Colbert celebrated his victory over Kanye in his typical humble fashion. (A video follows, unfortunately it is the whole show (there are no segregated clips), but the Kanye segment starts 1:35 in).
In celebration of MTV opening up its video vault (MTVmusic.com) to the moldy oldies of the 80s and beyond, here’s a song that I loved when it first came out, but never ever did get to see the music video for. Many of the music videos of this time were simply not funded well enough to put together much in the way of a dedicated shoot, so the producers of the video used various video clips, sometimes chroma-screening the lead singer in the front. Since David Bowie is singing for Queen in the video below, we don’t get to see that.
Anyway, enjoy some relatively random sequences to illustrate the song, “Under Pressure”. If you squint your brain a little, you can almost make some sense out of the whole thing.
