    Ok, who needs to go to this? I do! I do! :)

    What is this “special project” to be spoken about? Inquiring minds would like to take bets.

    Ok, hang on one second! I realized you can now make a reservation on the Apple Store site (you couldn’t early this morning), so I wanted to put my name down. I scrolled down to read more about the upcoming events and I saw this interesting piece of information about the Stephen’s event:

    From the Apple Retail Store SOHO site:
    “Join these two renaissance men as they talk about Burns’s storied career, take questions from the audience, and discuss an exciting new project.”

    Ok, so that sort of changes everything. So, according to this, it looks as if Stephen will be interviewing Ken Burns, not the other way around.

    And, I began to remember the past events I have attended…”Jon Stewart in Conversation with Stephen Colbert…” and “Jimmy Fallon in Conversation with Stephen Colbert…” In both of these events, Stephen did the interviewing. And this is the same type of title…”Ken Burns in Conversation with Stephen Colbert.”

    So, I will probably still go because any event with Stephen is going to be a great event! :) If I receive any other information, I will let all of you know!

    Just a FYI in 2008(!) I saw Stephen at that Apple Store briefly interview Steve Carrell and Anne Hathaway (Get Smart was coming out) it was VERY full to the point of standing/squishing & I remember we were some of the last let in & many people behind us didn’t get in. so be there EARLY either way! And to add and 2nd what StephenSmile said yes he was the interviewER with Jon & Jimmy but he was interviewED by Ken Burns about a year and a half ago at that Jewish community center so I’d assume this will be Stephen interviewing Ken. Good reason to go regardless but it’s too far for me.

      Hi Liz!

      Yes, Ken did interview Stephen back in October 2012 at the 92Y. I was there! :) And it was very good. So yes, I definitely want to go on Monday. Anything with Stephen is always a wonderful thing! :)

        I’m glad to see that my two favorite Colbert stalkers are going. Not that there was ever any doubt. If Stephen is appearing in the tri-state area one of you ladies will be there! Guaranteed!
        Have a great time!

  • StephenSmile64

    Well, thank you, Mr. Arkadin! ;)

    Mr. A: Then you have the likes of me and Katt standing by to live vicariously through them to get the details. First, “you have to go to this!” Then, “what happened! What did he say!?” Luckily they oblige us.
