I was so thrilled to see the story about bears exfoliating, because I read about that and immediately thought it was great material for the next threatdown. Also, Pat Robertson? WOW, I mean, WOW! Never thought I’d see the day.
I was also thrilled to realize that I am missing out on the Seattle Pop Conference. I mean, oh what a shame I have to miss the Seattle Pop Conference. I may never get to hear “I Love a Pride Parade: Queer Community Building, Temporary Spaces and Politicized Kitsch among LGBT marching bands”. I will try to go on.
Seriously, did Rick Santorum really say that??? I have to believe that Obama will win by default in November. None of those guys deserves the nomination.
I was pleasantly surprised with Andrew Bird’s music. I heard some of it for the first time yesterday and didn’t think I would like his songs, but it was good. That unnamed writer’s story was charming and now the speculation begins…I’m gonna guess Dr Eichler?
I thought I might do something a tad different and start off with a glorious “We can see behind Stephen’s desk” opening shot. I love it when they do those. It’s fun to try to see what he has back there.
“Of course, I was into LGBT marching bands way before their kitsch became politicized in temporary spaces.”
“It’s time for my award-lacking segment, ‘Who’s Not Honoring Me Now?'”
Stephen’s rejected paper:
“Self Love in an elevator: Appalonian images of Hedonism, Eroticism and the Mechanized Urban Lanscape of Post-Comeback Aerosmith”
“They said that my ontology was false and they couldn’t hear a single”
Pat Robertson, “self-deflating mylar balloon”.
“It is so sad when an old man begins to find his mind. Pat is showing all the signs of age-related ‘mentia”.
“We must stop Pat before the 700 Club becomes the 4:20 Club”
“He’s Persian Perfection, I love him, you think this is easy…What am I doing? Snap out of it Col-berT”
“Bears have gone metrosexual”
“I like to eat y’all’s cheesy grits”
“Everybody knows that before factories and cars, earth had no vegetation, that’s why they’re called ‘plants'”
Stephen:”You’ve played at renaissance fairs and funerals.”
Stephen: “Which is sadder?”
Now for the eye candy:
