Together At Last?

Blogging the Daily Show with Jon Stewart:

Tonight's guest is Dolly Parton! I'm not really a fan of her music but she seems impossible to hate. She just looks so damn friendly. For her new album, "Those Were the Days", Parton collaborated with lots of musicians, including the ever elusive Cat Stevens. Unfortunately, Bob Dylan's team turned her down (which got some hisses fom the audience) but it doesn't seem to faze her. She happily says that if Dylan hadn't turned her down, she wouldn't have gotten to work with the group Nickel Creek. She also says that she still loves Dylan and she was planning on doing an album called "Dolly Does Dylan".
... "was planning on" as in, is not now planning on or "I am planning on" in reported speech? Hopefully, a video will turn up.

Apart from the baseball, The Daily Show always seemed to me to be the best argument for getting Foxtel. That lame "International Edition" SBS sometimes shows isn't nearly enough. Apart from the rather delicious Jon Stewart, there's the hilarious Stephen Colbert, Mr Noblet in one of my fave TV shows Strangers With Candy. Which you should all watch. Unless you are easily offended, then you really, really shouldn't.

Also? Dolly Does Dylan? Ha.
