Some dude named Zachary Russell (awesome first name, BTW) filmed his wife squirting out his new daughter as they flew down a Texas highway the way to the hospital.
For those living under a rock, Stephen Colbert is the master of interviews and public speaking. Dating back to his inception as a correspondent at The Daily Show in 1997, he was destined to fall in love with himself and give birth to his own show, The Colbert Report, on October 17 of 2005. He’s won countless awards, including a Peabody, and even has his own NASA treadmill that was shipped to the International Space Station in 2009 – appropriately named C.O.L.B.E.R.T. (Combined Operational Load-Bearing External Resistance Treadmill).
Stephen recently interviewed Maurice Sendak, who is author to Where The Wild Things Are, Chicken Soup With Rice, In The Night Kitchen, and his latest Bumble-Ardy. The interview was split up into two parts where the dramatic more of it aired last night. Check out where the mild things are after the jump.
Many fathers in our 8BitDad generation grew up playing video games. We were lucky enough to experience the golden age of coin-op arcades, with giant-screened Street Fighter II and NBA Jam machines. We watched arcades fall in favor of home consoles and PCs. We huddled together in rooms late night to play the Super NES and N64, Sega Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast and the Sony PlayStation. We improvised set-ups to play serial cable-linked games of Doom II and Quake before dial-up became cable and DSL (or university T1s) and allowed us to play games over the net like Unreal Tournament and Counter-Strike. You get the picture – our generation runs deep. And if all that reminiscing didn’t bring a tear to your eye, you’re not one of us.
Somewhere along the way, we got married and had kids. But just because we’ve taken on bigger responsibilities doesn’t mean that fathers don’t still want to slap on a pair of headphones, crack open a beverage and hunker down in front of an FPS for a couple of hours. With the wives and kids safely tucked-in, and the whole night ahead of them, the [DaDs] Army became a meeting place for fathers to blow off a little steam and enjoy some mature, parents-only online gaming.
Think of it as the YMCA for dudes like us.
