Hey, kids! Don't forget, Elvis Costello is guest-hosting Late Show with David Letterman tonight, as Dave is out sick with . . . shingles. Who gets shingles?

Oh dear God, and do you know who his guests are? Kim Catrell (yawn), Eddie Izzard, and Mitch Hedberg. Did I read that right? If you don't watch tonight you're a freaking idiot, holy cow. Sweet fancy Moses. All three of those clowns are in my Interests list! Holy shit!

And also don't forget, the mini-series Children of Dune starts this Sunday on SciFi. I saw the first two nights of the miniseries version of Dune a few years back. They tried very hard to stick closely to the book. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to have much of a budget, and the desert sets were laughable. I'm trying to keep my expectations of such things low for this new one, because if they stick close to the book again -- man, Children of Dune was a great book, about eight zillion things happen in it (thank goodness they didn't even bother with Messiah). So we'll see!

so what's the deal with Dave being all not-coming-inny lately? not that i watch late night television anymore, but the bossman told me that bruce willis guest hosted last week? to interview somebody important? like colin powell or something? i seem to recall bill cosby guesting once, but that was when dave was having open heart surgery. other than that, i don't ever remember seeing a different host. help me out here. did dave just get lazy?

HEY KING KAI WHY DON'T YOU READ MY POST BEFORE YOU START ASKING ALL YOUR QUESTIONS, HUH?

He has shingles. And yes, aside from the time he was out for his open heart surgery, this week is the only time he's missed his hosting duties.

Dave also had an eye infection recently. Bruce's interview of Dan Rather was painful. Dan Rather just interviewed Sodamn Insane and Bruce was not connecting the importance of that.

man mitch hedberg rocks. i believe i've mentioned that before, actually.

what i wanted to say is that they kinda merged Messiah with Children to get this TV movie...i think they recognized how many people hated it.

Yeah, I have since found that out. Which is cool, we get to see Paul all blind and whatnot. But besides that, all that happens in that book is . . . nothing. Just the stupid conspiracy that accomplishes absolutely nothing. But Scytale will be in it, that's cool, and Bijaz the crazy dwarf!

What I *don't* understand, is why the Baron is listed in the cast. I know Alia killed him at the end of the first book; I guess it didn't happen that way at the end of the first miniseries. Which is stupid.

Re: i'm covered in beeeeees
Eh, don't get too excited. I've seen him on Letterman a couple times before (which is serendipitous, as I don't watch Dave very often these days) in an interview situation, and he was only okay. He seemed too nervous. Perhaps Elvis will help.
