Maurice Sendak on Colbert Report – A Wild Man Indeed

Author of “Where the Wild Things Are” Maurice Sendak was able to keep up with Stephen Colbert in what has to be the best interview in the Colbert Report’s history. With lines like “I didn’t set out to make children happy or make life better for them or easier for them” its hard to tell if he’s being serious or joking… but its probably a little bit of both. He also calls Newt Gingrich an idiot. When Sendak tells Stephen Colbert he’s gay, in full character Colbert says, “and they let you write children’s books?” Watch the hilarious part one and then part two below:

15 Best Jack Donaghy Quotes – Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock

30 Rock might be the funniest show on television right now… ok top 5? Well, the best part about it is Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy, the Vice President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming for General Electric and Liz Lemon’s (played by Tina Fey) friend and boss. 30 Rock’s season premiere is tonight and here are his 15 best quotes from the show so far. Are we missing any?

15. C’mon Lemon, what do we elites do when we screw up? We pretend it never happened and give ourselves a giant bonus.

14. “Donaghy saves GE… marries your mom”

13. Jack Donaghy: You have to fire ten percent of your staff.
Liz Lemon: What?
Jack Donaghy: We have to synergize backward overflow.

12. Lemon: “I’m feeling pretty drunk.”
Jack: “Well, it’s business drunk, it’s like rich drunk. Either way, it’s legal to drive.”

11.  Being in a relationship means overlooking certain flaws. I mean, somewhere right now a guy is on a J-Date with Monica Lewinsky. Nobody’s perfect.

10. Jack: Alfredo’s, 2 PM.
Liz Lemon: I’m not dressed for that.
Jack: You’re dressed for Burger King. Should we make it Burger King?

9. Jack: One minute you’re newlyweds, making love on the floor of the Concorde. Then, before you know it, your lawyers are arguing over who gets to keep the box your dog defecates in.
Liz Lemon: You taught your dog to poop in a box?
Jack: Bianca did. But, damn it, I want that box.

8. Jack Donaghy: Now let me hear you say the seven most important words in the American judicial system.
Frank Rossitano: My client has no memory of that.
Jack Donaghy: I also would have accepted ‘You can’t prove that’s the Governor’s semen’.

7. Jack: I haven’t met your boyfriend.
Liz Lemon: His name’s Floyd.
Jack: That’s unfortunate.

6. Kenneth Parcell: “Oh, uh, no, sir. I don’t vote Republican or Democrat. Choosing is a sin, so I always just write in the Lord’s name!”
Jack: “That’s Republican. We count those.”

5. Jack: I like when a woman has ambition. It’s like seeing a dog wearing clothes.

4. [Jack is in a museum facing a painting, waiting for Liz Lemon to meet him there. Liz appears behind him without announcing her arrival]
Jack: You’ve been avoiding me, Lemon.
Liz Lemon: How do you do that, without turning around?
Jack: To be perfectly honest, the first couple of people I did that to were not you, but… here we are.

3. Liz Lemon: Hey Jack, do you treat me any differently because I’m a woman?
Jack Donaghy: Well, I pay you a little less, yes.

2. Jack: “The Italians have a saying, Lemon: ‘Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.’ And, although they’ve never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.”

1. Lemon: “Why are you wearing a tux?”
Jack: “It’s after 6. What am I, a farmer?”

Van Halen Announces New Tour with “Kool” Opening Act

Van Halen just announced a new tour complete with David Lee Roth and a new album on the way. Sounds great! Yet, in what must be one of the weirdest yet, “Kool” pairings ever, the opening act on the tour will be none other then Kool and the Gang. Maybe this is because Kool and the Gang’s Joanna became a hit only a month or two before Van Halen’s Jump. To be honest, I think it sounds a like a fun show.Its a safe bet both bands will include these hits:

Van Halen – Jump

Kool and the Gang – Joanna

Pvt. Joe Bowers: But *why* do they use them to make Brawndo?
Secretary of Defense: [raises hand after a pause] Because Brawndo’s got electrolytes.


[first lines]
Narrator: As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent. But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. How did this happen? Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence. With no natural predators to thin the herd, it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most, and left the intelligent to become an endangered species.


[last lines]
Narrator: Joe and Rita had three children, the three smartest kids in the world. Vice President Frito took 8 wives and had a total of 32 kids. Thirty-two of the dumbest kids ever to walk the Earth. OK, so maybe Joe didn’t save mankind, but he got the ball rolling, and that’s pretty good for an average guy.


Narrator: Unaware of what year it was, Joe wandered the streets desperate for help. But the English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.


Narrator: The #1 movie in America was called “Ass.” And that’s all it was for 90 minutes. It won eight Oscars that year, including best screenplay.


Rita: You think Einstein walked around thinkin’ everyone was a bunch of dumb shits?
Pvt. Joe Bowers: Yeah. Hadn’t thought of that.
Rita: Now you know why he built that bomb.


Carl’s Jr. Computer: Enjoy your EXTRA BIG ASS FRIES!
Woman at Carl’s Jr.: You didn’t give me no fries, I got an empty box.
Carl’s Jr. Computer: Would you like another EXTRA BIG ASS FRIES?
Woman at Carl’s Jr.: I said I didn’t get any!
Carl’s Jr. Computer: Thank you! Your account has been charged. Your balance is zero. Please come back when you can afford to make a purchase.
Woman at Carl’s Jr.: What? Oh no, NO!
[She hits the machine. An alarm goes off, and a sign appears on the computer saying “WARNING! Carl’s Jr. Frowns Upon Vandalism”]
Carl’s Jr. Computer: I’m sorry you’re having trouble. I’m sorry you’re having trouble.
Woman at Carl’s Jr.: Come on! My kids are starvin’!
Carl’s Jr. Computer: [the woman kicks the computer, and it sprays a fast-acting tranquilizer in her face] This should help you calm down. Please come back when you can afford to make a purchase. Your kids are starving. Carl’s Jr. believes no child should go hungry. You are an unfit mother. Your children will be placed in the custody of Carl’s Jr. Carl’s Jr… “Fuck You, I’m Eating.”
[Joe approaches the computer]
Carl’s Jr. Computer: Welcome to Carl’s Jr. Would you like to try our EXTRA BIG ASS TACO? Now with more MOLECULES!

The 10 Best TV Neighbors – Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Ever wish you had a different neighbor? Well, what about a neighbor like one if these neighbors… the ten best in TV history

10. Larry Dallas – (Three’s Company) – Jack Tripper’s womanizing best friend. The best sleazy neighbor in history.

9. Richard “Boner” Stabone (Growing Pains) – Mike Seavor’s (Kirk Cameron) friend, neighbor and owner of the greatest nickname in family friendly sitcom history.

8. Barney Rubble (The Flintstones) – The diminutive blonde-haired caveman husband of Betty Rubble and father of Bamm-Bamm Rubble. He’s Fred Flinstone’s best friend and who doesn’t want to live next their best friend?

7. Urkel (Family Matters) – Steve was the epitome of a geek/nerd, with large, thick eyeglasses, “high-water” or “flood” pants held up by suspenders, multi-colored cardigan sweaters, and a high-pitched voice. He professed unrequited love for neighbor Laura Winslow, perpetually annoyed her father, Carl, and tried to befriend her brother, Eddie. He was annoying, but certainly his heart was always in the right place.

6. Wilson Wilson (Home Improvement) – Who cares if you can’t see his face…ever.  Tim’s neighbor and confidant. As a child, his parents did not allow him to speak to his neighbors, so he really likes talking to Tim and Jill. Wilson serves as an all-wise sage in the show, doling out advice to the Taylor family and seemingly knowing just what to say to solve a problem. He has traveled the globe and learned much from virtually every culture in existence. He has a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies, studying “extinct languages and forgotten cultures”.

5. Winnie Cooper (The Wonder Years) – Kevin Arnold’s main love interest. In an episode entitled “The Accident” and in the final episode, it is stated that every important event in Kevin’s life somehow involves Winnie. She lives on the same block as Kevin. She is the very definition of the “girl next door.”

4. Kramer (Seinfeld) – with his upright hairstyle and vintage wardrobe, the combination of which led to his categorization as a “hipster doofus”; his taste in fruit; his love of occasional smoking, Cuban cigars in particular; his energetic bursts through Jerry’s apartment door; frequent pratfalls and his penchant for nonsensical, percussive outbursts of noise to indicate skepticism, agreement, annoyance, and a variety of other inexplicable responses. Kramer is the best wacky neighbor in television history.

3. Ethel (I Love Lucy) – Ethel was Lucy’s landlady, and Ethel and Lucy were always scheming though Ethel generally provided the voice of reason as a counterpart to Lucy’s more hairbrained ideas. Still, she was the number one person she got in trouble with.

2. Ned Flanders (The Simpsons) – The long suffering neighbor to the Simpson family and Ned generally loathed by Homer Simpson. A devout Christian, he is amongst the friendliest and most compassionate Springfield citizens and is generally considered a pillar of the Springfield community. He may speak in an annoying rhyming pitter patter, but he’s the ultimate in turning the other cheek…especially when it comes to Homer Simpson.

1. Mr. Rogers (Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood) – Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was characterized by its quiet simplicity and gentleness. Episodes did not have a plot, and consisted of Rogers speaking directly to the viewer about various issues, taking the viewer on tours of factories, demonstrating experiments, crafts, and music, and interacting with his friends. He is the ultimate neighbor and easily the best neighbor in television history.
