Happy birthday, Saul Bass, greatest graphic designer of all time.

So remember: 12:01 a.m., May 26. The schedule after that will be approximately as follows: the first animated GIFs from the first episode will appear at 12:01 and a half, people will complain that Netflix is down at 12:02, spoilers will begin appearing on Twitter at 12:03, angry tweets about spoilers at 12:04, think pieces about how this distribution model affects spoilers at 12:05, think pieces about how this distribution model might result in the return of Firefly at 12:06, listicles of 10 more shows that Netflix should revive at 12:07, complaints that these episodes “suck” at 12:08, complaints about haters at 12:09, questions about why people who are so into Arrested Development refuse to watch Community at 12:10, and 25 pictures of cats watching Arrested Development at 12:11. — One more month, folks. The above schedule sounds about right, from NPR’s Monkey See blog.
Before we begin, I just want to take a moment to talk about the attack in Boston yesterday. Now obviously our thoughts and our prayers are with everybody there. And as the President said, we don’t know who did this, but they will be found and they will be brought to justice.
But whoever did this obviously did not know shit about the people of Boston. Because nothing these terrorists do is going to shake them. For Pete’s sake, Boston was founded by the Pilgrims — a people so tough, they had to buckle their God-damned hats on!
It is the cradle of the American Revolution! A city that withstood an 86-year losing streak! A city that made it through the Big Dig, a construction project that backed up traffic for 16 years! I mean, there are commuters just getting home now!
Even their bands are tough! It is the hometown of Aerosmith, who in their fifth decade are still going strong! Even Steven Tyler looks fantastic… for a 73-year-old woman!
But here’s what these cowards really don’t get: they attacked the Boston Marathon, an event celebrating people who run 26 miles on their day off until their nipples are raw, for fun! And they have been holding it in Boston since 1897 — and do you know how tough you have to be to run in a whalebone corset?
And when those bombs went off, there were runners who, after finishing a marathon, kept running for another two miles to the hospital to donate blood.
So here’s what I know: these maniacs may have tried to make life bad for the people of Boston.
But all they can ever do is show just how good those people are. — STEPHEN COLBERT, The Colbert Report (via inothernews)
