Excellent fanvid of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to 'I Touch Myself'. A must see!

I can't seem to stop thinking about how fabulous Jon Stewart is. I spent a good chunk of yesterday reading and writing about the recent debate Jon engaged in with Gov. Huckabee over gay rights (the transcript of which can be found in my previous post), and glowing with pride over it. And because I had basically nothing to do today, I found myself scouring [livejournal.com profile] tds_rps.

I discovered Fast Times at NAMBLA High by [livejournal.com profile] smilesawakeyou, which is an AU high school fic that surprisingly, actually works. It features Jon Leibowitz (Stewart) moving from New Jersey to a smaller town, where he begins to attend NAMBLA High! Unfortunately, on his first day there he finds himself face-to-face with some anti-Semitic students, but all is not lost! His first class is English with teacher Mr Jerry Seinfeld. Mhmm! Jon quickly establishes himself as a well-spoken, sarcastic intellectual when he responds to a young Tucker Carlson's digs at Hemingway, grabbing the attention of one Stephen Colbert.

This excllent fic, which is 21 chapters long already and counting, features many other real life characters such as Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, and Anderon Cooper (just to name a few) as fellow classmates of Jon, and John Oliver, Steve Carrel, and Lewis Black (among others) in guest appearances as the faculty of Nambla High. There's even a cameo by Bill O'Reilly as the stick-up-his-ass principal of the school.

I don't want to give anything else away as there are many slashy pairings and plotpoints worth reading, so please go read it now if you're into that kind of thing. It's smart, funny, and hot! What's not to love?

After discovering that whopper of a fic, I found a slew of great Daily Show and Jon-centric interviews and a number of wonderful quotes on gay marriage here.

Finally, I found this biography of Jon, which is certainly the lengthiest, most thorough biography of Jon Stewart I've ever read. Read it.

Basically, what happens to me about once a year is happening. I am falling madly, deeply in love with Jon Stewart all over again. I'm completely unable to resist his charming, sarcastic wit, his endearing, self-deprecating humour, and his undeniable ability to call the partisan pundits out on their bullshit.

I love him.

Two things!

1. Daily Show last night was so awesome. Jon and John did an amazing segment on the situation in Mumbai... I found it really touching and surprisingly appropriate. This show never ceases to amaze me...

2. WHY DO SO MANY OF MY FRIENDS LIKE TWILIGHT??

I know it's important to talk about the creepy and unnerving concepts of Twilight so that an awareness can be stirred up, but I'm almost reluctant to do it myself. It's just another chance for people to think, "oh there goes Nikki again..." My best friend's birthday party is on Saturday, and I have a bad feeling about it. I'm almost certain it's going to come up, and when it does, do I:

-- Talk about the issues that have been brought to my attention - issues that I believe to be important - or do I
-- Let them talk and believe that Twilight is harmless fluff that doesn't do any damage to the development of young and older women?

Working in market research has taught me how to question, and I guess I've started compartmentalizing my life into questions like this.

Anyway, we'll see how it goes. Off to Video class now. I'm editing my Final video today, so it should be fun!

Jon Stewart mentioned Canadian politics on the Daily Show last night. I think I actually squealed! Oh Jon! You do know who we are! :D It was a pretty funny bit on our election, too. Check it out on spike.com, they stream entire episodes.

All right, I'm done fangirling. Now I have to go write!
