Bag of Randomness for Thursday, September 10, 2015
Savages scrunch their toilet paper, civilized people fold their toilet paper.
“From a major review site that you’ve heard of.” – I hear that line in a commercial on The TICKET all the time and it sounds so odd it stops me down every time. There’s probably a reason why they can’t state the name of the review site, but it just sounds funny.
I enjoyed listening to former President George W. Bush on The TICKET. The Hardline guys seemed pretty at ease, but I bet it would have been a lot different if he was actually in studio as opposed to talking to him on the phone. Heck, Corby actually called him “Buddy” at the end. I don’t think he meant any disrespect, but he just felt really comfortable talking to the former president. W did sound really at ease, and listening to him in this setting almost made it feel like a real like conversation and not an interview. The way he told stories about 9/11 and other events in his presidency was in the same manner of talking to a friend about his fishing trip.
First Baptist Church of Bedford has a “worship pastor” that’s in hot water – Investigators indicted Kyle Adcock on 20 counts of rape and 9 counts of sodomy back in January in Alabama. Investigators said the girl involved was 14 at the time.
Stephen Colbert Opens Up About His Devout Christian Faith, Islam, Pope Francis, and More – I almost put an asterisk next to “Christian” as some of my Evangelical friends don’t believe Catholics are Christians. However, here’s one Colbert quote from the article regarding faith, “Faith ultimately can’t be argued, faith has to be felt. And hopefully you can still feel your faith fully, and let your mind have a logical life of its own, and they do not defy each other, but complement each other, because logic itself, I don’t think, for me, and you know—Aquinas might say differently—logic itself will not lead me to God. And, so, hopefully I can use my mind to make my jokes, and not deny my love for God at the same time.”
Thinking back to Colbert’s first show, by having Fallon included on two bits, and the manner in which he did them, it sure was a “setting the tone” moment, and perhaps the final “passing of the torch” for as we forever leave Leno and Letterman behind. It’s neat to see two friends get along, even though they are competing.
For some reason, part of Gov Jeb Bush’s interview was edited, and this part of him making mock Trump statements is actually funny.
Last night, Colbert had a segment that was a recycled version of Bill Maher’s “new rules” bit. I was also surprised he hasn’t really introduced his band leader to us. I mean, he’s said his name and pointed to him, but there really hasn’t been any back and forth or some kind of explanation on why he chose him and his background – or anyone else in the band for that matter.
Alice Walton is selling her Fort Worth ranch, but I didn’t know she sold the one in/near Mineral Wells a while back to a partnership that included a former SMU running back and Senate candidate – In 2006, she sold a ranch near Mineral Wells that she also called the Rocking W Ranch to a partnership that included ESPN sports broadcaster Craig James
