I am terrible about watching tv. When I put the tv on, I'm usually watching the LOGO channel or old episodes of The Golden Girls or HBO on Demand. Yesterday I ended up getting engrossed in a pretentious art film called Transylvania starring Asia Argento (it didn't have vampires at all but it had gypsies, a bear and Argento doing her usually freak out stuff).
Anyway, I digress. I enjoy The Colbert Report but I missed out on this episode about a month ago in which he interviewed one of my beloved authors, Neil Gaiman. Thanks to the glories of the Internet, you can see it by clicking here.
Also, for you die-hard Gaiman fans, you can pre-order the book he's co-created with Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls. It seems like a steal for $35. Click here to place your pre-order. It looks like it's working properly. Monday it took me over 2 hrs to place my pre-order thanks to the heavy traffic the site was receiving from orders.

My friend Brian attended the Morrissey show in Richmond last month. He was apparently on the other side of the venue than I was, we missed one another that night. We both agreed that the show kicked off great but faded towards the end. However, Brian captured the best parts of the show on video and has courteously posted them on YouTube. Above you can see the big highlight of the show.
