 sausage grinder of snark

Seth Rogan, of the Apatow stable of comedians, is on tonight -- theoretically shilling his new release, Pineapple Express. It's a weed action comedy.

I don't think I need to add anything more.

I'm not sure which David Carr is on tonight. Wikipedia tells me this:

David Carr may refer to:

   * David Carr (NFL player) (born 1979), American football quarterback
   * David Carr (history of AIDS) (1933-1959), suspected first Western AIDS victim
   * David Carr (journalist) New York Times journalist and former drug addict
   * David Carr (musician) (born 1974), drummer
   * David Carr (artist)
   * David Carr (keyboardist) (born 1943), keyboardist for The Fortunes

I think I'll assume it's the David Carr who's a "journalist and former drug addict"  -- he just happens to have a book out. It's called The Night of the Gun: A Reporter Investigates the Darkest Story of his Life --His Own. The book site is crammed all full of Flash crap, so I'll skip that, but there's other stuff out there. A whole lot ofother stuff. I'll just give you this from The New Yorker:

"Every hangover begins with an inventory," Carr, a columnist for the Times, writes in this bracingly honest memoir. In sharp and sometimes poetic prose, the author takes a detailed inventory of his years of drug addiction, chronicling the slide from drinking and marijuana use during his teen years in Minneapolis to shooting cocaine and smoking crack while trying to maintain his life as a reporter and the father of twin girls. Carr is meticulous in the investigation of his past, reconstructing events with the aid of police reports, magazine rejection letters, and more than sixty interviews with friends, former dealers, and fellow-addicts. His journalistic skills are on full display as he works to excavate the truth from his often hazy memories. He evinces genuine remorse for his frequently reprehensible behavior and succeeds in creating something more than merely another entry in what he terms the "growing pile of junkie memoirs."

Oh, and then there's the stuff about Fox news. And potatoes. Gotta read the stuff about potatoes. I doubt that'll make it into the interview tonight.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
