Not really, but if Stride is watching – send me money! This is hilarious:
This is what happens when you abuse your staff:
Bateman: “It’s in the works; the grownups are trying to work out the numbers. David’s very expensive now, but we’re trying to work some sort of a back-end position that he’s comfortable with.” It’s mostly Hancock talk until about halfway, and then David Cross shows up.
By now, you’ve probably seen the ridiculous and hilarious video of Bill O’Reilly trying to read a teleprompter (NSFW language).
I thought I’d also post the parody Stephen Colbert did:
I couldn’t leave out the (also very NSFW) DANCE REMIX!
Veteran FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk draws on one of the richest archives in broadcast journalism — more than 40 FRONTLINE reports on Iraq and the war on terror. Combined with fresh reporting and new interviews, Bush’s War will be the definitive documentary analysis of one of the most challenging periods in the nation’s history.
“Parts of this history have been told before,” Kirk says. “But no one has laid out the entire narrative to reveal in one epic story the scope and detail of how this war began and how it has been fought, both on the ground and deep inside the government.”
Frontline is pretty much the last bastion of serious news documentaries in America, so it’s probably worth a look.
I just stumbled across this Star Trek link on CBS.com, and discovered that you can watch full episodes of the classic Star Trek series. Crazy! And awesome, if you’re a big nerd like me. Oh they’ve also got MacGyver season 1 and a couple seasons of Twilight Zone.
I watch a lot of downloaded and streaming content. Often I copy files to the PS3 in the living room, and playback control is no problem. But if I’m watching on my computer, if I want to pause or rewind, it means I have to physically get up and go to the computer to do so. No more! I’m setting this up today:
You can control Netflix Watch Now playback with your remote. All you need is a remote control, a infrared receiver like the USBUIRT and a program like girder. I’ll show you how I’m doing this and share with you my girder gml file which you can download as well.
Union leaders for striking Hollywood writers voted on Sunday to formally endorse a deal with studios to end their bruising three-month-old labor clash, calling an immediate halt to picketing and paving the way for writers to return to work by mid-week.
I almost got sucked into watching reality shows there. Phew.
I just watched part of this PBS program, and it’s fascinating. A description from the website:
journeys deep into ancestry of an all-new group of remarkable individuals, offering an in-depth look at the African-American experience and race relations throughout U.S. history. Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. returns as series host, guiding genealogical investigations down through the 20th century, Reconstruction, slavery and early U.S. history, and presenting cutting-edge genetic analysis that locates participants’ ancestors in Africa, Europe and America. Joining Professor Gates in the new broadcast are poet Maya Angelou, author Bliss Broyard, actor Don Cheadle, actor Morgan Freeman, theologian Peter Gomes, publisher Linda Johnson Rice, athlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee, radio personality Tom Joyner, comedian Chris Rock, music legend Tina Turner, and college administrator Kathleen Henderson, who was selected from more than 2,000 applicants to have her family history researched and DNA tested alongside the series’ well-known guests.
Check out the site, there are a lot of really interesting videos and stories. Try to imagine what it would be like if you were part of an entire race of people who know almost nothing about their ancestors.
