Sunday Funnies










Comments

I'll miss the Colbert Report. Guess I'll just have to start taping the Late Show instead.
I had heard of how bad CNN had gotten with its nonstop Malaysian airflight coverage, but didn't get to experience it until this past Monday when my mother and sister took us to a restaurant...and then again on Friday when I went to another restaurant and it was on the TV. It seems like it's always "Breaking News" too, but probably even moreso for the families having to have the constant reminder.

Oh, that one of Marois with the bag on her head is just TOO FUNNY! Love the Mad Man one and the Colbert one too.

Be interesting to see if he drops his persona for his new show and just what his real character is like.

There's something really wrong with the news media when they term "still haven't found the plane" breaking news.

That Marois one this week had to be my favourite.

Ah Dufus, how I have missed thee. And yes, it's all about the coverage.

This just in: tyne black box batteries are dead.
Great funnies Dufus. And I feel guilty for admitting that I'm so tired of the Flight 370 coverage. I feel for those who have had their hearts broken, but seriously, all the coverage is doing those poor family and loved ones NO FAVOR.


Great Colbert funny! I hope he does well.

Imagine just what's been spent on the search that never seems to end.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
