Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I don't think these shows need any real introduction, given what they are and especially this community. Because of that, I'm not gonna go through all that nonsense of introducing the correspondents or hosts. What I AM gonna do, though, is point out that the shows are back on Hulu! If you're that excited to hear the news for the first time, the above logos are links to the relevant Hulu pages. No longer do you have to endure the horrible Comedy Central web player.
What I AM going to do with this thread from now on is keep track of the guest lists (don't count on this to run 100% of the time) and I may even keep track of the off-air weeks, just to humor myself.
We kinda had a problem in the last thread that I wanna take the chance to clarify now; anything discussed on the shows the night of their airing and up to the next episode is up for discussion here, no problem. When the next episode airs, people who still want to talk about those things should take those topics to their own thread (and often times threads exist for those topics already). Obviously Thursdays have an advantage. Aside from that, any gimmicks, past or present, run on the shows, or correspondents new and old, are free to be discussed here.
May 4th - Colbert - www.redcross.org - Please visit the website or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the relief aid for Mississippi and Alabama, which were devastated by the recent storms. THINK OF THE MUNKUS BEIBERS.
April 11th - Colbert - Twitter - John Kyl's explanation behind lying while on record, "Not intended to be a factual statement," has been picked up by Colbert and the Colbert Nation on Twitter as a hashtag, #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement. Look it up if you're ever bored, or add to the mayhem.
March - Colbert - www.colbertpac.com - Colbert has started a PAC, which... well, I guess it's just a money-making system pundits are using to back political candidates. So Colbert has called on the Colbert Nation to start a PAC with him. We don't know anything about it yet, aside from 54k people signing up for it as of April 12th. Go to the site and sign up to help out with whatever the hell it is!
