I went snorkeling with sea turkles. Now I just want a sea turkle of my own to hug.

On Dr. Jan Adams' Appearance on Larry King -- or Lack Thereof

... I'm heading for the far away, but I just wanted to say:

tonight, when the panelists on Larry King were commenting on Dr. Jan Adams' statement and walk-off just minutes before (and the b-roll was of the walk-off itself), it officially became the moment when Larry King Live ate itself and turned into "I Love 5 Minutes Ago."

The news commentary was about news that happened JUST FIVE MINUTES AGO. An insta-news cycle about a not-really-news story. I guess nothing else is going on in the world? The war? Nuclear things, huh? Genocide?

Oh, I guess not.

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

A very wise man once told me that you can sing nearly every Emily Dickinson poem to the tune of "The Yellow Rose of Texas."

Let's try!

First, listen to the song:

Now try it!

The yellow rose of Texas:
There's a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see,
Nobody else could miss her,
not half as much as me.
She cried so when I left her,
it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her,
we nevermore will part.

Hope is the Thing With Feathers:
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

Yup. Still works.

Incidentally, according to Woody, hope is not the thing with feathers. That is my nephew and I must take him to a specialist in Zurich.


I forgot to mention this, but please check out Rock Band Band and Mark Goodman (original MTV vj!) every night this week at 8pm on VH1 Classic. We shot five "ROCK BAND COUNTDOWNS" celebrating the top 10 drummers, top 10 bassists, guitarists, frontmen, bands, etc. Last night was the drummers show and you may have missed it, but they're repeating every night. Tune in tonight!

And also: act iv of ROCK BAND COMETH: THE ROCK BAND BAND STORY is up on the internets:

Best. Headline. Ever.

Snerk, snerk, snerk. (with thanks to Tom for the best headline tip of all time).

From the article itself:
A SUCCESSFUL businessman with a large property in the shadow of a mountain range near the NSW hamlet of Michelago has shocked the local community by driving to the outskirts of Canberra and shooting another man dead.

He then drove back to his isolated residence where it is believed he took his own life.

A murder-suicide is never funny, but it's a little sort of funny when it provides the best headline in the entire world.

NED? Ned Ryerson?

I just wanted to point out that the actor on "Heroes" playing morally-ambiguous maybe-good/maybe-bad Primatech leader Bob:

is the same guy who played Ned Ryerson, "Needlenose Ned,"Ned the Head," he did the whistling belly-button trick at the high school talent show? Bing. Ned Ryerson, got the shingles real bad senior year, almost didn't graduate? Bing, again. Ned Ryerson, he dated your sister Mary Pat a couple of times until you told him not to anymore? Well?

Bless your heart, Stephen Tobolowsky.
