Watch the first part of this Daily Show episode from last week; a very funny and clever take on Rick Perry 2 minutes in, for one, but the whole show is worth watching!
Check out the the first segment of last Tuesday’s Daily Show for some of the best coverage of the debt-ceiling-debacle. Very funny.
While I’d like to think schadenfreudegasm could actually be the 2012 Word-of-the-Year, it’s a bit too intellectually edgy; it’ll be easily knocked out of the running by some Twitter-related derivative gerund, no doubt, that won’t require much thought.
That said, to learn how one achieves a state of schadenfreudegasm, watch THIS absolutely priceless Daily Show segment: Jon Stewart and John Oliver engage in some oneupmanship to find out who’s country–the UK or the USA–has the worst media. The News of the World phone hacking scandal is the big theme.
As a quilter I like it when small bits of things are patched together to make something that looks different: check out this Daily Show montage. It’s quite funny. Though I wish folks would just ignore Fox TV so it would cease to exist.
Yeah, right. See me at camera three….for my fantasy world!
Last Thursday Jon Stewart’s program was one of the best entire episodes, ever: (watch it here). Great coverage to the Anthony Wiener sex-pics scandal (warning: there is a cotton-covered junk shot), he did a super interview with Bill Moyers and had a pizza epiphany as he provided viewers with a guide to NYC’s best pizza parlors.
Jon Stewart doesn’t do many interviews; he was recently (last Thursday) on the Rachel Maddow Show: watch the whole 50 minute uncut interview here, it’s really a very thoughtful and intelligent conversation.
Not much of that out there these days.
This ENTIRE episode of the Daily Show is HILARIOUS. I don’t know what I liked better, the very hard to make funny Catholic Church sex abuse story, or the interview with RNC Chairman Michael Steele.
I just had to post this link before leaving tomorrow!
Click here to watch Jon Stewart and his sock-puppet pal Dr. Bagelman as they view a few Hammas-related cartoons together; they almost manage to make violent propaganda for children…..funny. Really.
Here is last night’s hilarious first segment of the Daily Show; Jon Stewart uses today’s Massachusetts election for Senator as a launching pad for an all-out assault on the Democratic Party. They deserve every comedic salvo.
Why is the best news on a comedy show?
Aside from dithering about my cloud fabric dilemma described in the last post, after work this week I managed to dye some yarn I got from Dharma Trading. It’s a very yummy silk/cotton blend and here’s the hank, fresh out of the box:
Only once, long ago, did I jump into a hank before winding it into a ball….with very sad, tangled consequences. So on one recent weeknight in my neighborhood, this is what my viewing of the Daily Show looked like:
I love my yarn-ball-winder-thingy: it makes very neat and tidy balls of yarn. My hank was transformed into something I could actually use, rather than just tangle up.
That interview on w/Jon Stewart was great, BTW, w/Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari, who was jailed, beaten and tortured in Iran due to his appearance on the Daily Show, when the program taped in Iran earlier this year. I like to do something while watching TV; the very passive act of watching TV is highly problematic for me, which of course makes me a definite minority.
The next day after work I dyed my yarn and rinsed it in the kitchen sink: here are the finished colors:
Now comes the weekend….so much exciting fabric and yarn! Spoken like only a true fiber geek.
