Now is the solstice of the year


They demolished a building.


Cloud bowl.




Springfield patterns.





The day after the first day of winter is one of my favorite days of the year. It's the day when the days start gaining sunlight. Tomorrow, it's only one second. But it gets better with each day thereafter.

* I think we watched every show: December 1964: Bob Hope in Vietnam.

* Why Stephen Colbert’s “We’ll Meet Again” Singalong Was the Greatest Send-Off in TV History:

Even his choice of song, Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again,” couldn’t have been more perfect. It worked on several levels that made The Colbert Report so successful. Its association with the World War II generation evokes both the “simpler time” that the conservative pundits he skewered like to say once existed, and also Colbert’s numerous fundraising efforts for veterans-based charities. But there’s a third layer in the song’s history — its use at the end of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb — that also draws upon the tradition of the absurdist political satire at which Colbert excelled.

Beautiful, man. Just beautiful. I can't wait to see him on The Late Show, especially since I missed every single Colbert Report (except for a few clips on the web.)
