Haha. That can't be real.

I hope Colbert does a parody version of this.

I think a lot of people know he's crazy, but don't know how crazy. If you really take the time, you'll see that he's much more bizarre than you could have ever imagined...

So, exactly what the fuck is he talking about? Is this a story about him? A story he wrote, or an account of something happening? He kind of implies it's both, which confuses me even more.

This guy is a special kind of crazy.

Crazy like a fox!!


"From Publishers Weekly
In Beck's debut novel, the conservative radio and TV host (An Inconvenient Book) makes a weak attempt at a holiday classic in the vein of It's a Wonderful Life. Despite his single mother's financial hardships, 12-year-old Eddie is certain this Christmas he will receive his much-desired Huffy bike. To his dismay, what he finds under the tree is "a stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that his mother carefully modeled after those she can't afford at Sears (one of four places she keeps part-time jobs). Eddie tosses the sweater and insults his mother before the two go visit his grandparents at their farmouse. On the drive home, though, Eddie's exhausted mother falls asleep at the wheel and crashes, dying instantly. Sent to live with his grandparents, an increasingly bitter and angry Eddie lashes out at his accommodating guardians, engages in typical teenage angst and grapples with belief in God. For all his focus on traditional family virtues like respect, love and forgiveness, Beck's lightweight parable cruises on predictability, repetition and sentimentality."


So he's doing a live show of this story?

I hope he does the voices of little Eddie & his ma'.




This guy man. I imagine him hiding in his laundry basket when there is a thunder storm. His weepy little eyes peering out from under his man corsets & dirty socks.

looks like a heartwarming holiday adventure for the whole family filled with guilt and shame. this man is someone any average person can relate to because of his good ol boy wisdom and that plad shirt. it shows his humbleness and down to earth character, one who has those good values found in the church and the heat of a recently used missle silo.

I thought that first video was a joke, like some youtube parody.

Why did it start off like a sequel to Paranormal Activities, and why didn't they show his mouth? Is that the twist at the end, that the killers stitched up his mouth?

I kinda/really want to see this.
