Colbert on the Origins of Evil

Sunday, April 05, 2009 1
If you're a member of the Colbert Nation (like I am) then you've probably already heard this exchange between Stephen and Dr. Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University on Lucifer and the origin of evil. My favorite part of the clip:

Dr. Zimbardo: "You've obviously paid attention in Sunday School."
Colbert: "I TEACH Sunday School motherf****!"

Where the Wild Things Are...

I know very little about this movie other than the fact that it is a film adaptation of the beloved childrens book by Maurice Sendak. That and the fact that it will be mind blowingly awesome. Here is a brief list of all the awesome things I spied (or heard) in the trailer:

1. Shadow of monster head (:14)
2. Glimpse of monster horn in sunlight (:21)
3. Monster's eye (:25)
4. Arcade Fire - Wake Up(:30)
5. Max's sweater (:39)
6. Max's rabbit costume (:52)
7. Catherine Keener (1:06)
8. By the Author Maurice Sendak (1:32)
9. From Director Spike Jonze (1:36)
10. Where the Wild Things Are (1:56)

And for the one thing that sucked about this trailer:

1. October 16 (2:06)

A brief moment of pause...

I didn't realize it until just now, but I just crossed the 200 post mark here in T-Bone's World. I've been at this since June '05...almost 4 years. That's about 50 posts a year. If I'm really being honest, I have to say I'm not too proud of the pace there but then again, I'm not a guy who's ever gonna hit a 4 minute mile. Quality over quantity baby...quality is job #1. So let me take a moment to say shalom and thank you to all of my friends in the interwebs. Thank you for taking a moment to read what I have to say, listen to what I recommend or watch what I think is funny or compelling. It means more to me than you know...

Such Great Heights...

Thursday, April 02, 2009 2
Not that anybody really needs another reason to dig David Bazan but if you're looking for one here it is...him singing backup for Ben Gibbard on "Such Great Heights". I got to see this tour a couple of years ago and yes, it was amazing, thanks for asking. I've probably talked about this before because I've really only got like 3 or 4 cool stories that I just keep recycling. Me driving to Nashville to watch David Bazan open for Ben Gibbard is one of those stories. And yes, I am also aware that my blog has been a little Bazan heavy over the past week or so. Will I be changing that any time soon? I don't know...probably not as long as he continues to be the most awesome thing I have to write about. You've got your Jonas Brothers...I've got my David Bazan, mmmkay?

Slow and Steady Wins the Race...

So that David Bazan show I told you about the other day? Yeah, it was only about 1000 times more awesome than I even thought it would be. Here's a little taste. Oh and if you're not a fan after this, please follow the advice my brother Justin would give: Do the world a favor and go ahead and punch yourself in the face.
