Doodads: Geo, Colbert, and Burton

ABOUT GEO

I got a notice that George Harrison’s youtube channel had a new video to watch.  I was truly delighted by it (hoping they used only scrub or already-dead trees to create it.)

ABOUT COLBERT

Before the election in November and through last and this past winter  I watched The Late Show with Stephen Colbert religiously.  After the relief of Biden being elected and the vaccine becoming accessible, my urgency to watch his show sort of faded.  As Afghanistan and The Delta variant raise their ugly heads,  I’m ready to get back to paying attention (and  laughing) with the brilliant Mr. Stephen Colbert.

 

The Internet is Furious LeVar Burton Won't Be The Next ...

ABOUT LEVAR BURTON

Last night’s opening monologue had Stephen talking about the choice of the new permanent host of the American game show, “Jeopardy!”  Anybody who knows anything  knows that Mr. LeVar Burton was — nay, is! — *the* best choice for permanent host.  LeVar made his mark way back in the, “Reading Rainbow,” days where he read children’s books (my kids and I enjoyed the show as much as “Sesame Street.”)  Then LeVar went on to be Geordi La Forge, “a fictional character who appeared in all seven seasons of the American science fiction television series ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ and its four feature films.”  Currently LeVar has at least one podcast, “LeVar Burton Reads.”  I’ve listened to the podcast and love hearing him read. 

Hot off the press! 

Mike Richards is OUT as “Jeopardy” host, per The Seattle Times.

It’s time to do the right thing and give the job to the right person: Mr. LeVar Burton!

  1. I can’t see Le Var without thinking of the episode of Community where Donald Glover meets him. An American icon

      Is Community a comedy show at a night school? I saw a few episodes of it and liked it. If you can tell me what S and E I can find it on netflix.

      And of course I went to youtube to see if it was there, and because everything in the world is there, I found it. THANKS FOR THE LAUGH

      Dhani is a son any dad (and mom) would be proud of. Yes, I’m Geo was smiling to see it, and I like what he said, about bringing Friar Park grounds to the city. You’re welcome 🙂

        Wouldn’t you love to tour Friar Park just once? That park bench he was sitting on…it was there in the 70s and George said he was still finding hidden tunnels and things that he never found before.

          YES. It’s on my bucket list. They need to have a contest and whomever wins gets a full tour of the place and can spend the night there. I bet Geo has been able to locate all of the hidden tunnels now that he’s a spirit.

            He can go anywhere now… and not being pestered by Beatle fans. They are probably so wary of the public because of that nut that stabbed George.

              You know, I haven’t been able to go back and watch the doc about what happened or read any more about it because it’s so upsetting. I’m sure Geo would have lived longer if that pos hadn’t stabbed him. When I see this I know evil exists. I also know that good always triumphs. You’re right, he’s free now ❤ and his light shines so brightly.
