This is a Baked Potato Pizza from Pizza Luce. It is covered in mashed potatoes, broccoli, bacon, and tomatoes, and it comes with a side of sour cream and green onions.
You can only get it in Minnesota.
It gives me wistful longing.

I only just started watching True Detective a few days ago. Within the first episode I realized Matthew McConaughey’s character reminds me an awful lot of myself, and that Woody Harrelson’s advice to keep that kind of stuff to himself is something I could probably stand to put into practice more often.

I always thought it sounded odd when people would describe chocolate as “sinfully delicious” and a “guilty pleasure.” Then I read up on how we got chocolate by way of the imperialist colonization of the Americas, specifically the Spanish conquest of the Aztec empire.
So now when I bite into a piece of chocolate cake, I’m struck by how rich and sweet it tastes. And then I think of exploitation and mass murder.
When I started writing this down I was trying to make a joke but I just ended up bumming myself out.

“CBS CEO Les Moonves explained that Colbert would not host the show as his blustering character. “What you’re going to get is the real Stephen Colbert,” he said. “He said it’s time to do something different. If he’s going to be on our air for 20 years, as we all hope, it’s not humanly possible to keep that character going.”” —

CBS should’ve hired the other ‘Stephen Colbert’ to replace Letterman - latimes.com

Oh. Well then. Nevermind. Also “gimme your fingernails!

I’m predicting some heavy reformatting of The Late Show

I’ve heard a lot of people say that Colbert will need to leave politics behind him in order to appeal to The Late Show's audience. We're all so familiar with the satirical character he plays on The Colbert Report that it is difficult to imagine how he could host “as himself.” I think the possibility that he will cease the majority of his schtick is unlikely.

When The Late Late Show (the one that comes on after The Late Show) began under its original host Tom Snyder, it felt more like 60 MinutesDateline, or 20/20 than it did Letterman. But upon Snyder’s retirement then-host of The Daily Show Craig Kilborn took over. But Kilborn didn’t host Late Late by doing his best Tom Snyder impression. They completely reformatted the show to feel much more like Letterman and Leno’s shows. And Kilborn even took some of his Daily Show creations with him, such as his “Five Questions” segment. Other creations he passed on to Jon Stewart back at The Daily Show, such as “your moment of zen.”

I’m predicting that a Colbert-hosted Late Show will probably look a lot more like The Colbert Report than it does Letterman.
