Wheeeeeeere's Johnny?

In 1977, Harvard's Hasty Pudding named Johnny Carson their Man of the Year, and hosted him on campus for a night as part of the ceremony. While there, Carson spoke in front of cameras, and made a remark about how much the award meant to him... because it had been ages since he had last had sex in a college dorm. It may have been while he was having breakfast the next morning. I know it's on video. I've seen it. But I can't find the clip. Can you?

Did I hallucinate this award/charity show phenomenon or did it exist?

I somehow believe there was a THING going on in the 1990s/2000s that involved all kinds of pop stars and presenters and performances that were deliberately intended to be edited into one continuous stream that would fit together (going forward and backward, too). [more inside]

Let's create an award for making a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

My friend did a phenomenal job on a long-term project, working with very little. Recently another person in a similar position--except with all the support in the world--won a prestigious award for doing the same thing. I want to let my friend know how much his work is appreciated. Let’s think of an award I can make for him--preferably something that can be assembled and mounted on a trophy base. The iconography I have in mind is Scrappy Doo, but that seems rather poor. A silk purse might look too ... testicular? Help, please!

How can I attend the Oscars?

So after watching the Academy Awards last weekend, I'm wondering - how can I go? It's in a huge theater, surely they have some general admission options? Even better, could I be one of those seat filler people that fills the chair when a celeb goes to the bathroom? I'd prefer the Oscars, but I'm open to the Emmy or Golden Globe awards, or possibly even the Grammy awards. [more inside]

Need recommendations to make/buy custom military-style campaign ribbons

I help run an annual game convention in DC and I am looking for advice on acquiring some awards for people who participate in one of our tournaments. The event has a wargamming theme and I would like to give people a custom, military-style campaign ribbon for participating. I see lots of websites for ordering actual U.S. service ribbons, but does anyone know of a place that might make custom ribbons? Or suggestions for making about 30-60 of them by hand? [more inside]

What to do with your old childhood trophies?

What have you done with your old childhood and teenage-era athletic awards and trophies? Did you keep them, or did you throw them out? What do/did you feel towards them, either way? And if you threw them out, did you find a means of disposal that allowed both for environmental concerns and the fact that you had your full name engraved on some of them?
