Daily Show

The Daily Show last night was great, too. The videos are here, but I can't get any of them to play on OSX in either Safari or Firefox, and the source is too obfuscated for me to dig out the direct links. Dear Comedy Central, please fire your web staff, thanks. Inarguable Failure, Bush's Timeline, Beleaguered Bush.

Update: I can ban you just as quickly as you can post "works for me", you know.

Update 2: Direct links: Inarguable Failure, Bush's Timeline, Beleagured Bush. Thanks, edm...

Update 3: feed of latest Daily Show clips: dailyshow_video

Scene missing! A video that used to be embedded in this post has disappeared. If you know of a copy of this video that is still accessible, please mail me so that I can update the link.

    Those videos play on my 800MHz Powerbook G4 just fine, the only special installed being Windows Media Player for OS X (ughh). Digging out the direct links proved to be a bitch here as well, and really, is there anything shittier for Mac users than WM? Bleh.

    I haven't watched this particular copy yet, but it appears that one can get (at least a portion of) last night's episode here: http://onegoodmove.org/1gm/1gmarchive/cat_daily_show_video.html

    Works for me. (Safari, WMP, etc.) Took a minute to show up, though.

    that info graphic was one of the best they've had in a long time. i meant to keep it on my tivo so that i could transcribe it all. heheh.

    Fortunately I started stockpiling yams and tiger repelent several years ago. I remain, however, completly unprepared for nuclear unicyclists.

    I had the same problem so I created this RSS feed, syndicated as <lj user="dailyshow_video"/>. Most ads are filtered out.

    every response out of president dumb-fuck's mouth comes off about as convincing (and with similar delivery), as a crumb-covered child swearing a robber snuck in through the window and stole the last cookies from the cookie jar.

    Crooks and Liars has a clip from this show in WMV and QT, accessible over plain old HTTP.

    See, the possibility of Osama and Jenna getting together and reproducing is yet stronger proof that the Bush family line all needs to be irreversably sterilized so that they may not continue to pollute the collective human genome.

    No breeding of "master races", damn you.

    Now here's a scary thought... remember when the media was talking about "Ben & Jen", or "Bennifer", etc, instead of reporting real news and information?

    One word:

    I can hear my mind screaming in agony over the sound of my own laughter.

    Oh man. If only those were the only disasters of the administration.

    Oh dear ghu... getting the info out of these... okay:

    % curl http://www.comedycentral.com/sitewide/media_player/play.jhtml?itemId=17834

    Coughs up a hair ball. Look for <embed ... src="...", where the value of the src attribute starts with http and ends with mswmext=.asx

    Copy the src attribute.

    % curl the src attribute

    Returns an XML doc.

    The stream URL is in /asx/entry/ref/@href

    The asx format supports a mess of directives for telling Windows Media what to do, but seems overkill if you're only sending the URL for the actual stream.

    Should be easy enough to write a shell script calling tidy and xsltproc to munge these.

    Locusts? We had locusts last year. Has everyone blanked it out?

    "G" would be at the head. For George.

    Jon Stewart's head to head with Christopher Hitchens was fantastic. I'm certainly a fan of Hitchen's rhetorical prowess whether or not I fully agree with his ideas, but let it be known that Jon will be my new baby's daddy.
