Stephen Colbert’s Full Interview With Children’s Book Author Maurice Sendak

By  •  News

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.

Mom Takes 10-Year-Old To Get Tattoo

By  •  News

This story made the rounds a few days ago as a Georgia mother was arrested for allowing her 10-year-old son to get a tattoo. Despite the kid’s seemingly-honorable request to ink his 12-year-old brother’s name on his forearm who died in a car accident 2 years prior, Georgia law from 2010 states: “It shall be unlawful for any person to tattoo the body of any person under the age of 18, except a physician or osteopath.”

The mother, Chuntera Napier asked, “How can somebody else say that it’s not okay? He’s my child, and I have the right to say what I want for my child. I can’t go tell anybody else what I want for their child.” Well, I guess the same can be said for beating your child – so there’s that.

20 Years Later, Derek Redmond’s Father Will Carry Olympic Torch

By  •  News

Coming up on the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics on July 27, I’m reminded of a story I didn’t quite pay attention to until I became a father.

Derek Redmond is a retired British athlete who held the British record for the 400 meters sprint, and won gold medals in the 4×400 meters relay at the World Championships, European Championships and Commonwealth Games.

He’s most notably remembered for his performance at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona where he tore his hamstring in the 400 meters semi-final but fought through the pain and, with assistance from his father, managed to complete a full lap of the track as the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

Twenty years later, Derek’s father is being honored in a very special way.
