Lookwell!

Once upon a time, Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel (aka Triumph) wrote and created a TV pilot. That TV pilot starred Adam West as a washed-up actor who thinks he can solve crimes. It never made it past the pilot stage, but it's actually pretty funny. It's on YouTube:



(I found this out from the commentary on the Simpsons season 5 box set I just purchased.)

So is Conan's pretty funny interview with John McCain, but you people can search for that yourselves.

Which reminds me that Gogol Bordello are on Conan tomorrow. Don't miss them, they kick some major ass live (and I assume on TV that translates fairly well).

Also, I think I'm going to be blogging about the Astros for this baseball website. They already had a Tigers guy but they didn't have anyone to cover the 'Stros so I figured I'd apply for it for the hell of it. They gave it to me.

At least I'll be doing some sort of writing while I look for a real job.

I mentioned this over the weekend and my mom recalled seeing it and really liking it.

I wish they would have actually made it into a TV series, it could have been ridiculous. Nowhere near as ridiculous as this, however:
