Tribute

How I remember David Bowie…

One ding…

We outliers of the world who get you–who love you–will miss you more than Geoff misses his penis.

See you on the other side!

More Craig!

Guess who’s going to be hosting another show on television this fall?

One of Craig’s guests mentioned it on Late Late Show Monday; he confirmed it; and the Google machine had the detes.

Celebrity Name Games is based on the board game “Identity Crisis.” Contestants partner with celebrity guests to guess famous identities from clues provided.  And with Craig as host, you know there will be lots of improvised fun.

It’s syndicated, so cross your fingers that it will be showing in your market.

Ain’t gonna take no static

I live in New York City and am a Time Warner Cable customer.

That means, when I return from Atlanta Saturday and try to watch the episode of Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that I am DVRing tonight, I may be greeted instead with….

If the goobers from CBS and TWC can’t come to an agreement by midnight tonight, that is.

You guys had better get your sh#t together…’cause if I miss my Craigy Ferg —

Heads are gonna roll!

Thank you for your attention.

Here come the players

After what has seemed like an endless hiatus, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson is back tonight (or early in the morning) with new shows in their brand-spanking-new studio.  I’m really excited.

You know who’s not excited?

CBS.

Craig likes to joke that the CBS brass don’t know he’s on the air.  That he can get away with the nonsense that he does because they simply don’t have a clue that there is a show on after David Letterman. It’s funny schtick.

I’m starting to believe him.

Tonight’s new Late Late Show is going to be broadcast from his shiny new studio — a studio that was part of Craig’s two-year contract renewal.  One might assume this cost CBS a little bit of pocket change.  So you’d think they might want to promote the event.

A little.

But to date, I have seen nary a promo on TV.  Nothing in print.  Even CBS.com doesn’t mention it, not even on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson page.

Pitiful.

Come to think of it — I did get a tweet yesterday.

But I think it was from someone like me, anxious for the shows to begin.

Is it time for another blog post on Craig Ferguson?

I think so, yes.

CraigyFerg (as he is known on Twitter) was chatting it up with his followers yesterday when Spellchek corrected his Latin entry to read “primate nocturnal”…which led Craig to the inevitable inspiration —

Vampire Monkeys

People suggested names.  (Orangutangula and VanHelchimp were Craig’s favs.)  He even chatted it up in his monologue last night.   And today?

It. Is. Risen.

And strangely enough, looks a lot like Craig.

It’s a great day for America, everybody.

 

Robo Cop

Dear New York magazine:

In your October 24th issue you ask, “Who is the toughest robot in the nerd universe?

A nerd myself, I surveyed with great interest your detailed chart on display,  featuring metal men ranging from C-3PO to Wall-E to Iron Giant to Tik-Tok.

With the help of researchers from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, you crowned as ultimate nerd robot…

Optimus Prime, of Transformers fame

I’m not a fan of the movie, but the robot is pretty bad-ass…so I’m not disputing his right to the title.

My beef?

The world’s coolest robot skeleton being left out of the mix.

Geoff Peterson of the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

Sure, he’s scrawny, only has one working arm and no lower extremities.  But his ballsy personality alone would have Optimus Prime eating out of the palm of his hand.

The one that works.

So, keep asking the tough questions, New York mag.  Just don’t make them multiple-choice until you know your nerds better.

Careful, Icarus.
