Lynch's Best-Dressed list

During the Julia Ormond interview last night, David Lynch's 10 Best-Dressed 2008 list was mentioned. I thought some of you would like to see it but also see Craig's competition...

4. Craig Ferguson: The braw Scotsman works from such a confined palette, yet he paints such broad strokes. I never understand what he’s saying, but his rumpled suit says, "unpredictable, esoteric, a little bit creepy ... Remind you of anyone?"

Clearly, someone is a fan!
Please do check out the source as Mr. Lynch maintains his standards and doesn't disappoint.


Celebrating the 4th for a 3rd Year in a Row!

Great News! Craig will be celebrating Independence Day with the Boston Pops for a 3rd year in a row! This is wonderful news for US fans who will get to see the broadcast live on CBS. I've enjoyed the last 2 years watching the fireworks 'with Craig' and I was hoping to make it a tradition. It is indeed a great day for America, everybody...

Maybe This Time...

During an interview last week with Dane Cook, Craig mentioned a show called "Maybe This Time" which he starred in with Dane, along with Betty White and Marie Osmond. The show ran for just over a season on ABC in 1995-1996.

I do have a few episodes from this show, which I acquired through YouTube last year. Sadly, the channel was sucked into the YT black hole and the uploader seems weary to repost them, despite my begging and pleading. I haven't begged in a while, so I'll have to put that on my to-do list. In the meantime, I have been scouring the intergoogles in search of any more eps...

So, I know some of you are very excited but I'm quite weary to post them for a variety of reasons, some of which include: the crappy quality, some sound is out of sync and the fact that some episodes aren't so good. What if ABC, or it's proper owners are shutting down people who post these clips? I wouldn't think so, but since I've been posting episodes of the Late Late Show on YouTube, I have experienced some pretty whacky incidences of blocking due to copyright infringement.

Perhaps you've noticed, but every time Craig does an episode of "Murder She Wrote 2009" I have to take the title page out, otherwise, YT picks it up and blocks the video. Despite the original show's age and no longer being aired in primetime, I found this rather cheeky. So, you see, it's a tricky business this YT uploading....

I have considered this totally worthy as a Craig Vacation Treat, so I have 2 weeks to make my decision as to if, when and where I will post an episode. Sadly, I don't even have the funniest one I've seen, but the eps I have do involve Craig and I have to admit he looks mighty tasty. I can't leave you hanging, so I've included some photos, which shows the poor quality of the footage but also what a 1995 Craig looks like, before The Drew Carey Show and before His Chattiness was crowned.

As usual, I look forward to your comments and suggestions!
I'll keep you posted, my lovelies...
