12:59 am - The Colbert Report

Just a heads up: Gideon was on The Colbert Report last night (tonight for some of you), August 23rd. Repeats will air on Thursday, August 24th at 8:30AM, 2:30PM, and 8:30PM EST. Comedy Central is pretty good about putting up interviews, too, so the interview will most likely be added to their website in the coming days.

Edit: If you are into buying episodes of TV shows on iTunes, The Colbert Report is available and this episode will most likely be put up in the coming days.

12:26 pm - Gideon Yago sighting

Hey everyone (= Just joined the community today to tell about my run-in with Gideon this morning. I'm not sure how active you guys are, but I'll post this anyways.

Went to Perkins for breakfast this morning. There've been a lot of news reporters around town the past few days (I live in Bemidji, MN, nearest town to the Red Lake school shooting), so I didn't doubt I might see some reporters, but I had to keep staring at the group of three guys in the corner 'cause one of them looked familiar. It was Gideon!

Anyway, my friend and I stopped by his table on the way out and talked to him for a few minutes. He's actually QUITE nice, very friendly, and was thrilled to know that we watched his special on Iraq (I'm a huge fan of his work, and am going into journalism correspondence myself). He asked us a few questions about the college, Red Lake, and the native american population here, chatted for a bit, and we said goodbye (=

I gotta say.. man, he's cuter in real life, especially with stubble/glasses. His right wrist was in a cast, though, so it was awkward shaking his hand.

Gideon's in the issue of SPIN with Green Day on the cover. He does an interview about the upcoming election with a few other people including Moby. It isn't that interesting, but there is a good picture if you're that much of a fanatic. Like myself. ;)

Actually I came across it by accident and actually shrieked when I saw it. Then I felt stupid.

He isn't wearing his glasses though. :( Ah well.

"On September 14, 2004, on the heels of the third anniversary of 9/11, days after the 1000th US soldier died in Iraq, the violence in Iraq was escalating. We went to Kent State University in Ohio and connected 7 young Iraqis and 10 young Americans via satellite to talk about the war, politics, their lives, and pop culture. Watch what happens when young people are placed face to face with their peers abroad. This is Chat the Planet. It's today's global reality, direct and uncensored"

I wonder what Gideon was like in high school, I wonder what he listened to and who he hung around with, and whether or not he went to prom. Is this weird?
I'm sure if I ever met him I would probably ask.

A large acrobat reader file with the full sized photo:

I dont think I should be admitting this, but I just spend a bit too much time admiring his chest hair.

The Choose or Lose: Work It Special was on this afternoon and is scheduled to show again on Saturday [June 5, 2004] at 11AM EST, for those of you interested. I love how Gideon is everywhere in the specials.

From MTV.com: The "Choose or Lose" special will focus entirely on employment issues facing young adults in America and the roles of government and politics in job creation and retention. "MTV Choose or Lose: Work It" will feature the most trusted man in America: Walter Cronkite, providing expert analysis and insight into the complex questions surrounding employment and young adults. MTV research has found that employment is one of the most important issues for young adults as the presidential election approaches. "MTV Choose or Lose: Work It," hosted by MTV News' Gideon Yago, will follow five young adults as they compete for one entry level management position. As the applicants move through the interview process the special explores the various employment issues young people face in today's job market including outsourcing/off-shoring, underemployment, and the growth of temping. Throughout the special, Walter Cronkite will define and explain these terms and speak to the role of politics and government in the employment issue. Yago will also interview a young person who was recently laid off from a California based tech support position. Yago will follow the path of the job as it is outsourced to a company based in India. Once in India, Yago talks to the young employees at the India based tech-support company offering a global perspective on this hot button issue.

10:47 pm - I know this is committing community suicide but...

Okay, here's the deal. A while back I was bored and decided to write a song about Gideon, maybe it was the lack of sleep but I decided to record it on my digital camera and I was going through the play back and I found it. It happens to be the second song I ever wrote. I'm not too good a guitarist and though I consider myself a good singer I kind of sound like a 12 year old boy on it. Well anyway I figured now that I joined a Gideon community that I would post my Gideon song. Nicely entitled L'eggo my Yago. The sound is atrocious considering it was recored on a digital camera and the lyrics are meant to be silly and taken lightly so please do not dwell on them. But anyway,without further ado just type this copy and paste this ling and you will have it.


I know it's corny as hell but please no overly cruel comments.
