Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert

* Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said on Friday that comedian Stephen Colbert should pay Fox News for all of the years that their “gaffes” inspired him.* Craig Ferguson’s final night as host of Late Late Show airs tonight. It's maybe his toughest gig ever, coming one night after Stephen Colbert said so-long to The Colbert Report so he could move to ...* Contrary to what headlines may suggest, Stephen Colbert is not the only Late Night host bowing out this week. Tonight marks the end of a very special show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. And I am a super fan. I wasn’t a nightly watcher during the first few seasons. If someone I specifically…* Some thoughts of the night: End of an era - last Craig Ferguson tonight, Stephen Colbert last night, and this Wednesday the last JRR Tolkien Hobbit started! Ferguson was my favorite due to his quick wit, smarts and proclivity for going off script. Great one of a kind entertainer who will be missed. Truly hilarious moments were enjoyed over his 10 year seating at the Late Late Show. We wish you the best, Craig - you will be missed! Colbert will take over from Letterman mid 2015 - which will be another era ender/era starter. Colbert will be great as at least one of the Late Night offerings will have a highly intelligent host who can handle himself when things go off the rails. I find most of the new crop of hosts are too safe, too afraid and too scripted, or more plainly - too boring. The best thing to look forward to will be new starts. Hopefully some great new starts. Here's hoping! Good night, Olivia S.* Well, No more Stephen Colbert, no more Craig Ferguson. Both have moved on. How will I fill my nights now?* Now Trending: Cameron Diaz engaged to rocker Benji Madden: Also: Stephen Colbert signed off on The Colbert Rep...* The First Apostolic Church of Cameron Giles welcomes new co-savior Stephen Colbert* Just because Stephen Colbert is retiring his character of the same name, the Muppets will still have Sam The Eagle, guys. It will be okay.* Series finales are always a bummer, but watching the very last of the Stephen Colbert character was one of the saddest thing ever.
 
Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

* Carols were first sung in Europe thousands of years ago, but these were not Christmas Carols. They were pagan songs, sung at the Winter Solstice celebrations as people danced round stone circles (The word carol originally meant to dance to something). In AD 129, a Roman Bishop said that a song called "Angel's Hymn" should be sung at a Christmas service in Rome. Another famous early Christmas Hymn was written in 760AD, by Comas of Jerusalem, for the Greek Orthodox Church.The first North American Christmas carol was written by a saint -- and a member of the Society of Jesus. Now known as "The Huron Carol", it was written by Saint John de Brébeuf, Jesuit missionary to the Huron Indians, who was martyred in 1649 by the Iroquois Read more: Reference:* Real life Druid King Arthur Pendragon says the Winter Solstice is the point when "You Know Everything Will Get Better"* Coming up in the next hour we have the Druid King Arthur Pendragon chatting to Katie about the Winter Solstice.

Night At The Museum

Night At The Museum

* Miranda & behatiii 😘 // Going to watch Night At The Museum later! Hehhe* Nak tengok movie night at the museum* Night at the museum secret of the tomb* Anika's second party attempt seems to have gone much better than her first. Thank you to my sister, Erika (the aesthetician), for coming to give the girls facials. My mom had ice cream sundaes and candy displays for the girls. i took the twins to see 'Night at the Museum' (some Robin Williams parts were creepily depressing - and Mickey Rooney's in it again), which was decent, but not as good as the urges and I don't like unnecessary disgustingness in kid's movies, so that grated on me. It's a wait to rent it kind of movie. You can't top General Custer, people! Anyway, stole pictures off my mom's phone and found some from my brother and sister's visit, too. :)* Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb: Movie Details* Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb A movie that had a fitting end to a marvelous trilogy, a memorial to 2 life changing actors, and had brought me to tears Loved every second of it!! From now on The British Museum of History is coming to life* Who can't wait to see Tilly ? She look cute :p. Night At The Museum 3 arrives to Legend Cinemas this 25-Dec !!...* Just your typical delivery from across the pond! See Rebel Wilson in Night At The Museum, now playing!* The film Night at the Museum 3, which is partly set in the British Museum, opens today. Here is our round up of real-life late-night events* Just got out of a fantastic movie in which I ended up crying. What movie you might ask? Night at the Museum:The Secret of the Tablet. Some people might think that a third movie might be over doing it, but each one of them are spectacular if you ask me. Statistics show, that since the first movie was made, museums around the country have had a 25% attendance increase. That's what I want to do with my life. Inspire and make magic through film. I have to admit, I mainly cried because I knew I was watching Robin Williams' send off to the world. He is truly amazing. Rest in Peace dear friend. The magic will never die. Especially if I have anything to say about it.

I read an interesting post from Martha Hunter about a few grown men riding on the subway bragging about their incarceration experiences. Unfortunately this is not that unusual as many people claim and hold on to their experiences regarding street and thug life. So unfortunate that those guys and so many others have little to remember or share that would be considered positive experiences. This brings me back to over 12 years ago when I sadly was held in a jail cell overnight on a false charge and experienced the communications between 3 younger men on their way to Rikers Island, which is a NYC holding jail with thousands on inmates awaiting sentencing or court cases before in many cases being turned over to New York State Corrections for incarceration at a upstate prison facility. The young men were actually bragging and drooling over what they would do when the bus took them to Rikers. One said he would go straight to the gym to work out. The 2nd said he was going to get some of that ...

Remember when Nicki Minaj got really big & famous when she made that song "Super Bass" & "STARSHIPS". She was able to make those 2 songs big hits without really being sexual at all.Then she made that song "Pills & Potions" which obviously was a flop. It didn't do well at all. So she went & made "Anaconda" which is really sexual that's when she got like 10x more views on that than she did on "Pills & Potions"! When she did Anaconda she blew up all over again. Now she's all about her *** & titties. Like is this the only way you can get attention? Nicki Minaj wants to act like Kim Kardashian & a stripper more than acting like a actual rapper. From the way Drake & Lil Wayne rapped about having sex with her in this song just proves that MEN are really only into her for her SEXUAL image & could care less about her being a rapper... Which is really sad & true. Nicki Minaj can grab all those views from doing "Anacond ...
