On the heels of Patton Oswalt’s words of hearing post-Boston Marathon attack comes this amazing outtake (courtesy of io9) from his guest spot on Parks and Recreation. It’s an eight-minute-long “citizen filibuster” at a Pawnee town meeting, in which Oswalt’s character offers a vision for Star Wars Episode VII involving a “time ribbon,” Lando hooking up with Leia, The Avengers, the return of Boba Fett, and a disturbing Chewbacca sub-plot. Highly entertaining and nerdy as all get out.
Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe: Stephen Colbert and Alan Cumming Combine for Awesomeness
Not sure what Stephen Colbert was doing with the bucket-cam in Times Square last night, but one night prior, he scored bigtime in skewering Brad Paisley and LL Cool J’s “Accidental Racist.” He pointed out some of the issues we pointed out in an earlier post, but took it to an amazing new place by bringing Alan Cumming on to do a parody called, “Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe,” employing the reductiveness and sketchy rhyming of the original. He even employed a cowboy hat in the making of said parody. (Which, needless to say, brings its own extra level of hilarity.)
