Letterman on Kimmel talking about Conan on Colbert
October 18th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]

Last Friday, Conan O’Brien was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and he told a story about how David Letterman got him a horse, yes a real horse, as a thank you gift for writing a nice letter to the semi-retired talk show host about all he did for late night television.

The story goes, when the TBS late night host heard that Letterman sent him a gift, he got overly excited. He got even more excited when he heard that the truck the present was in was too big to fit through the gates of the Warner Bros lot in Burbank. Therefore, he skipped, I am assuming, to get his gift that also skips. That is because it was a horse. What does a Harvard Man from Boston in LA via NYC know about horses? Nothing that is what.

Therefore, he found a place to take care of the unridable horse, and it was not cheap. On topic but off track, there are several equestrian centers in Burbank that are within a mile of where Conan tapes his nightly show. He could literally walk there, that is how close they are close to him. Anyways, after two years, he found a new home for Dave, so they donated Dave the Horse that was given to him by Dave the Letterman. A place so nice that is why we say that hoses go to greener pastures.

You would think that is where the story ends. It does not. David Letterman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, since the ABC host is taping the show in Brooklyn this week, and Dave told his side of the story. Letterman likes to give gag gifts and thought he would send Conan the horse with two cowboys while O’Brien’s show was taping and the stallion would take a big dump on the stage like when Ben Stiller brought a camel onto JKL many years ago. Then after the horse took a big sh!t on Conan’s stage, the giftee would sent the gift back to the gifter. That did not happen and Letterman had to pay for the thoroughbred that was returned to sender.

What did we get out of it? Two late night talk shows telling their stories on two other late night shows that are not their own. I cannot wait for Letterman to be Conan or Conan to be on Letterman’s Netflix show, so we can get the next chapter on their story.

And how did you like that in both cases the guests, who are also late night show hosts, totally dominated their interview segments on the other person’s late night show. The men behind their desks knew that they had met people who are better at their jobs than they are.

On that note, I think that Conan should spend a block of his show telling an unscripted tale because he is a great storyteller. I could watch him talk for 4 hours every week just talking about whatever. Don’t you just love the way he tells stories?


Bill Murray feels pretty singing a West Side Story medley
October 13th, 2017 under Bill Murray, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Bill Murray performed a 7 minute medley of three songs from West Side Story with Jan Vogler & Friends. Somewhere, I Feel Pretty and America are just three of the songs on their album New Worlds that is out now.

When it comes to the performance, it is no Cher, but it will leave you smiling. Who doesn’t love to see Murray belting out, “I Feel Pretty!” The best moment comes at the very end when he sings this line from America, “Puerto Rico’s in America!” He got a huge applauds for a line that was written over 60 years ago. Wonder if Stephen Sondheim knew how powerful that line would be in October of 2017 to a President who does not seem to understand that?

If you have never seen Cher play every role in West Side Story, then you must click here!


Daniel Craig says he thinks the upcoming Bond will be his last
August 16th, 2017 under James Bond, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]

Daniel Craig has played James Bond for times since 2005, and the actor told Stephen Colbert yesterday on The Late Show that he thinks the 5th time will be his last. He explained his decision as, “I just want to go out on a high note and I can’t wait.”

When it comes to his previous comments of that he would rather slash his wrists than play the part again, he said that question was asked to him 2 days after wrapping up Spectre. After working on an action film, you can understand why he would say that.

Are you shaken or stirred that he is leaving the franchise?


Anthony Edwards makes his case to be in Top Gun 2!
June 22nd, 2017 under Stephen Colbert, Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Suri. [ Comments: none ]

As soon as Tom Cruise announced that Top Gun 2 was happening, Val Kilmer has been very vocal that he would love to be in it. Iceman is not the only one from the 1986 movie who wants to be in the sequel, Anthony Edwards, who played Goose, made a video for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on why he should be in Top Gun: Maverick even though his character was killed off. He says he can play Ghost Goose. But I say if the Roseanne revival can revive Dan, why can’t Top Gun resurrect Goose? We need him like we have the need, the need for speed. Let us start a petition that Goose should not be goosed from the sequel!


How did Ice Cube get his name?
June 21st, 2017 under Ice Cube, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like Stephen Colbert and me, then you probably have wondered at some point how Ice Cube got his name. Well unlike us, The Late Show host had the chance to ask him, so he did. That was when he explained how is brother gave him the name that he would be known as for the rest of his life.

O’Shea used to try to talk to his older brother’s girlfriends when the called and then one day Clyde gave him a little warning to stop doing that. Cube shared that story on the CBS late night show, “Back in the day, when you had an old refrigerator they would push it on the curve and guys would come by and pick it up. My brother was like, ‘Yo, you know, that refrigerator down the street? Take you down there, I’m slam you in the freezer, when they pull you out, you are going to be Ice Cube.'” After that threat, the actor ran and told his friends not to call him O’Shea anymore because he was going by Ice Cube. To this day, he has kept that cool name!

As cool as it is, I was hoping for a much cooler explanation. Like his friends and him had an ice cube eating contest and he won. Or on a hot Compton day, he sat on an ice cube until it melted. Or under difficult a situation, he remained as solid as an ice cube. Or he got into a Fist Fight (I loved that movie) with someone and took them out with a sock full of ice cubes? How did you think he got the name?
