Anybody catch Letterman the other night? Dave had a severe bout of Laryngitis or something and sounded like a frog. A lesser man would have taken the night off and had someone fill in for him. By lesser, I mean less stubborn.
It was quite amusing though, halfway through the monologue he switched places with the cue-card guy, and later had Paul come over and do the Top Ten list.
Jennifer Garner was nice and brought him a cup of honeyed tea, and in return he rubbed ointment on some wounds that she'd suffered recently, which was kind of icky.

YES! I totally saw that last night too and wanted to know the same thing!! Thanks for reminding me of my curiosity. What the hell happened to him? He sounded like a 13 year old school boy getting excited for the first time.

Dave's been appearing sick on the show more and more frequently for the past few years. Just a month or two ago he went for about two weeks with a chronic cough. He's an old guy. I hate to think of television without him, but maybe some time soon he'll start thinking about throwing in the towel. Having had a kid at such an advanced age he may not have a lot of time left to be a father to Harry.

In fifteen minutes or so I'll see if his throat is any better tonight.

Daves back!? Yeah I never get the TV Guide anymore, makes life hard.

Not only the kid but hasn't he also had a quadruple bypass or something on his heart?

Started watching the The Tremors TV series again. I totally forgot Christopher Lloyd was in this short lived western sci fi horror comedy. Great.

He never left.

The bypass was about eight years ago, before he and Regina had Harry, and it was quintuple!

Jeez... why do I know these things? How did I become a Letterman nerd? Insomnia, I suppose...

Hey Faze, Cha, I really do reccomend Generation Kill to you both since the guys who did The Wire also wrote for it. It even has some of the same actors.

Hahaha, Captain America is insane. So is Encino Man, but his antics are kind of less funny. And a little more sad. Not that they aren't all sad as a whole, but... you know.

How far in are you now, Nurdbot?

Just finished watching Combat Jerk (<3 Military slang) and jesus that ending was depressing.

Well, except when the Marines started to sing. And Captain America is Rimmer-esqe.

I'm assuming you haven't read the book the miniseries was based on. The ending to Combat Jack is even more depressing when you find out in greater detail what happened... (quoting the book in spoiler brackets just in case):


That ending really helps, yeah. I watched the miniseries with my dad when it was first airing back last July/August - I think he's still a little obsessed with Teenage Dirtbag.

Marines view Charms as almost infernal talismans. A few days earlier, in the Humvee, Garza saw me pull Charms out of my MRE pack. His eyes lighted up and he offered me a highly prized bag of cheese pretzels for my candies. He didn't explain why. I thought he just really liked Charms until he threw the pack he'd just traded me out the window. "We don't allow Charms anywhere in our Humvee," Person said, in a rare show of absolute seriousness. "That's right," Colbert said, cinching it. "They're fucking bad luck."


I still haven't a clue about the charms thing. Haha, fuck yeah! real life Iceman sounds awesome!

Quote
....Marines call exaggerated displays of enthusiasm — from shouting "Get some!" to waving American flags to covering their bodies with Marine Corps tattoos — "moto." You won't ever catch Sgt. Brad Colbert, one of the most respected Marines in First Recon and the team leader I would spend the war with, engaging in any moto displays. They call Colbert the Iceman. Wiry and fair-haired, he makes sarcastic pronouncements in a nasal whine that sounds a lot like David Spade. Though he considers himself a "Marine Corps killer," he's also a nerd who listens to Barry Manilow, Air Supply and practically all the music of the 1980s except rap. He is passionate about gadgets — he collects vintage video-game consoles and wears a massive wristwatch that can only properly be "configured" by plugging it into his PC. He is the last guy you would picture at the tip of the spear of the invasion of Iraq.

Just watched Combat Jack, it's like Band Of Brothers Iraqi style, great stuff.
Captain America is David Schwimmer!

I liked the mention of Baltimore by the former shipping guy in The Wire, Ray, he's still crazy, heh.

We talked about The Wire quite a bit when Chay was watching it.

YES, WATCH. It's phenomenal and probably the best thing out there.

And while we're at it, everyone here should just watch whatever David Simon has had any hand in whatsoever. He didn't do much in Homicide, but it was still a great show for the first five seasons at least (I'm currently remarathoning it). The Corner completely shattered me emotionally, it was fantastic. And, of course, The Wire and Generation Kill are both all kinds of outstanding.

Finished Generation Kill, excellent stuff. Best thing about it? no goddamn politics at all. It was brilliantly written explaining both sides of the coin.

Final episode had a Cash song at the end!

I watched all of The Wire in about 2 weeks.  I'd watch at least 1 whole DVD every night and be fucking miserable in the morning, but it was so worth it. Yes, watch.

Recently on Deal or no Deal one guy bagged 20000 bucks, but you know how after a deal they keep going to see what would have happened? He would have got the 100,000! So unlucky.
