colbert is god


So, I'm drying my eyes right now, having just watched the last episode of The Colbert Report. Yeah, I'm kind of a wuss. I'm actually proud I made it halfway through the show before breaking down.

I've written before how David Letterman was basically my therapy during my teens and twenties, being nearly the sole constant source of happiness and stability during a decade of unhappiness  and instability. But for the last nine years, Steven Colbert has been my therapy. The difference being while the Letterman years were mired in sadness (death, death, and more death), the Colbert years have been marked by a whole different type of instability - the positive kind (finding a career path, getting married, having a kid, buying a house). Positive stress, but stress nonetheless. Colbert helped get me through it, and for that I am thankful.

Waking my wife up with my lol'ing over the past few years had two root causes - Steven Colbert and Kenny Fucking Powers. Both will be missed, but not for long in Colbert's case. I do look forward to him taking over The Late Show. He was the perfect choice and I was elated when it was announced. But it will be different. The character of "Steven Colbert" may be the greatest piece of satire there has ever been.  The real Steven Colbert has quite an act to follow.

Below is the all-time greatest Colbert performance, which wasn't even on the show, followed by my favorite clip from the show.

Aw shucky ducky. Thank you, Steven.

I’m at Liberty Station, parked, while Finley sleeps before we hot the playground. There is some sort of cancer walk going on. I think. I see Relay for Life signs everywhere. But I also see a lot of flags and there’s a generally Tea Party vibe. The playlist on the PA while I’ve been here:


Party in the USA

They’re Coming to America

Good Bless the USA

Some country song with “American Girl” in the chorus

Some Creed-ish song with “American” in the chorus

ROCK in the USA

Good Bless America

Another country song, something about American honey”

Another country song, ugh, “born in the USA, trucks stops, etc”

Born in the USA (oh the irony)

American Bandstand

Surfin’ USA


They are also selling bacon dogs, which seems like an odd choice for a cancer walk.


I’m not really sure what’s going on. Is this like an “only cure American Cancer” type thing?





are you siriusxm?

are you siriusxm?:

No punk channel (don’t EVEN mention Faction - a couple of hours a week it’s okay, the rest is 311 bullcrap and some Australian brah prattling on and on) but a Pittbull channel? Yeah, life is fair.

audio jihad, vol 1 (2001)

Obviously, these mix CD's were not carefully curated. They were just slapped together randomly. No real rhyme or reason. You have to understand - this was before iPods and iTunes and Spotifies and Google Play Musics and RDIO's and Groovesharks and Pandoras. The point wasn't to come up with a perfect mixtape of hair metal power ballads to show that girl you like that you do have a sensitive side, not that I ever did that or anything, but simply to cram together a bunch of songs I liked so I could listen to them in the car without lugging around a suitcase of CD's. That gets you something like this. Just picking shit at random. Hardcore, pop-punk, garage, whatev.

Also, I never even liked Boy Sets Fire, so I have no idea why they keep popping up on these. Weird.

Lastly, the name of the comp. Cringe. So bad. So, so bad. And waaay too soon. I apologize to everyone. And yes, there's a volume 2. Egads.
