Tell Me How You Love Craig ...

and of course Hope is amazing, thank you very much.

Every time I embed a Youtube video - SEE POST BELOW - comments appear and disappear. At different times for different people.

Kind of like Followers and Mr. Linky appear to be doing

After all the Internet is nothing more than "a series of tubes"

and we all know how tubes can get twisted and clogged

Oh, that was a great clip, and he's so RIGHT!

Thom said...

Well that was interesting to say the least. That's the first time I've ever seen or even heard of him. Give me Wanda Sykes any day :)

Cloudia said...

Hello! (through da tubes)

Fun ;-)

aloha-

Comfort Spiral

Jay said...

Craig Ferguson is awesome. I absolutely love the way he does those live openings. Nobody else has the guts to do that.

Grayquill said...

So, Dianne are you beginning to lose things - often? Sounds kind of scary.

Cherie said...

Yup, definitely one of Craig's more brilliant moments. A wonderful analysis, and spot on as far as I can see. But I must admit that I love the puppets too (more the musical numbers). I guess what I love the most is that I get to have both. :)

Dianne said...

linda r - he is right!! as he is often is, he is at his best when doing commentary like this

thom - I love Wanda
Craig has the show after Letterman
he's also an actor and author
I think you'd really like him
he's irreverent and down to earth

cloudia - you came thru loud and clear!! right thru da tubes

jay - awesome he is
and his puppet segments are fabulous
I loved 'white lines'
Huffington Post replays them and has people vote for their favorite

grayquill - once the mind goes - oh well
but the comments is not me, it's blogger and youtube acting up

cherie - while he was talking I thought of you
how we used to discuss what a great professor he'd make
his delivery is so perfect
I like the musical segments too
I love the monkey puppet and his human friends too

No young and stupid for me

Arkansas Patti said...

I love Craig,thank goodness for DVRs. I think his accent is VERY sexy.

Micky-T said...

That really was brilliant, it makes total sense.
I love how he puts it, right in your face.

The Peach Tart said...

He is brilliant and very underrated.

jennifer said...

I can get so frustrated when 'computer thingys' don't work properly. I am a techno-duh and computer issues make me feel dumber.

Then I realize I live in an age when I can Google just about anything and have an answer immediately - I can be Google-smart in a snap (as long as the bloomin computer is working).

Thanks SO MUCH for posting the blog button. Glad to have you along!

Bond said...

Tubes? I never seen no tubes....

Can't see the video either here at work...

Daryl said...

Draino ... it works on all sorts of clogs
xo

Reb said...

He is so right! He's so sexy!

Dianne said...

walking man - your post was spot on!! no surprise to me of course

patti - Craig is top priority on my DVR :)

micky - I love how he puts it too

peach tart - he is underated, and CBS does not do enough to publicize him. then again I often think he likes it that way

jennifer - you're welcome! it is a wonderful idea, your daughter is brilliant
this youtube and blogger thing is a pain and blogger help is as useless as my ex ;)

bond - the Alaskan Senator - the 100 year old criminal - what was his name? hehehehehe
he was the head of the Communications Comm. yet thought the Internet was " a series of tubes"
Jon Stewart turned it into one of his finest bits

daryl - I'd like to send some draino to blogger help

reb - oh yes he is!! ;)

Travis said...

Perhaps the tubes need an enema.

Grayquill said...

You want me to belive that ugh? Well okay, I guess it could have happened just as your said.

Matt-Man said...

Twisted tubes are one helluva pain in the ass. Cheers!!

Thom said...

Cool..I may have to try and stay up and watch...by the way, burn your bra...there's something for ya on my blog. LOL. There's always Hope :)

Shelly said...

Smart, funny, opinionated...with an accent...can we get him to lead the revolution? hehe

Deborah Godin said...

That video is wonderful!! I don't watch him enough (too past my bedtime and I don't have tivo). I think he has a real truth-in-jest point. I felt the same way about Norman Lear's All In The Family, and blamed it for precipitating the real downhill slide in television sitcoms that carried over into real life. Then I heard a bio piece on Lear the other day that said he had actually intended to be poking fun at Archie Bunker in hopes of waking people to stupid prejudices etc. So I now don't blame Norman (though I still think he unwittingly caused it) for making bigotry and ignoramitude loveable and acceptable. Fast-forward to the 2000s and there's Archie clones everywhere, in government and in voting booths. But there's always Hope!!

I am unable to see this clip, BUT, I watch Craig every night and he is like, from another Planet...WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL...Don't you love this whole Puppet Contest thingy??? LOL!
I LOVE when he opens with a song using a Puppett or 8....He really is the most talented man....An old movie of his was on one of the Movie Channels I get....It was with Charlotte Church playing his daughter....He plays this kind of washed up Alcaholic Rock star....He is so good in it---It's not a great film, but I enjoy seeing him doing these other things.....I cannot imagine what he was like when he was drinking, etc....Letterman is so very smart, signing Craig F. for the Late Late Show....!

SnoopMurph said...

I adore Craig and so happy he's around.

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!

Give Hope a kiss from us. :)
