Vancouver 2010 - How Colbert save the dying art

On February 11, Stephen Colbert revealed The Colbert Report's official poster for the Vancouver Olympics, created by Shepard Fairey (you can download the full poster version here). He introduced it to his guest David Ross in the context of the discussion how sports have create art. It is interesting how Olympic posters changed over the years. I think that political and cultural correctness had a lot to do with it.

Great interview! As usually, Colbert combines entrainment with intelligence and a good dose of narcissism :-)

Why it is such an interest to me? Because, as a citizen of Colbert Nation I also helped to support US Speedskating team :-)

Happy Saint Valentine's Day!

Valentine's day is one of the older and more popular traditions around the world. Interestingly, St.Valentine was a martyr and there is nothing romantic about his life and death. There is not much information about the guy (or guys) period. Go figure!

Nevertheless, it is nice to love someone and be loved! Happy Valentine's!

You can read my Valentine post from last year. I included there my favorite love-sex-relationship movie clips.

In the picture is my Don Quixote :-) I love you baby!
