A sweet yet haunting late-night listen. St. Vincent was on Letterman last week singing "Cruel" from her new album, "Strange Mercy", which is set for release on Sept. 13th. If you want to hear more, you can stream the album now on NPR.org.
It's stand-up Saturday morning again!
Here's Joe Wong's recent appearance on Letterman. Remember, kids: No means no. Except when it means nitric oxide.
Yesterday, Steve Agee posted this clip of Zach's network television debut. It's an appearance on Letterman's show, but Janeane Garofalo was guest hosting because Dave was having heart surgery.
Terrific inaugural performance and the subtitles only heighten the fun.
A) This is my favorite thing in the world.
B) I am so excited to interview Amy again on Friday night.
C) This show with Amy and Jimmy Carr is one of my favorite middle-period Sound episodes.
My new thing is watching Jack Hannah clips from Letterman.
I highly recommend watching the clip above, which was shared on the forum by GloriousKyle.
Even more than that, though, I recommend watching Thursday's show online. The whole thing's great, including the musical performance by a wonderful country singer I'd never heard named Jamey Johnson, but if you want to cut straight to the animals, fast forward to the second dot on the timeline. Then watch, and laugh like you've never laughed before.
If I ever get a talk show, I want it to be all demonstrations. Cooking segments, animals... fuck celebrities. Just all dumb stuff, all the time.
Jimmi Simpson killed it on Party Down last week. And this is just as fantastic.
Everyone's talking about Wolverine, but it's the second part that I love the most.
