Help me settle a debate. I am remembering a segment but can't find it. In the segment, Stephen is interviewing a musician (either jazz or hip-hop). They are discussing his music and the musician mentions that he improvises, unlike a show like Colbert. Colbert takes it as an insult, and throws away his note cards to show that he can improvise. I think this was in a later season of the show. Thank you!
Can someone help me to locate an episode of Colbert from a few years back--Comedy Central's search engine is not as versatile as I was hoping for. This is what I remember: Stephen is doing an interview with a woman who's suffering from cancer (can't remember if it's terminal or not) and she says that when she was first diagnosed she kept being told that she should be tough and positive and that if she was positive she could "beat" cancer, but all she really wanted to do was feel sad and not have to fake her emotions, and she made a really profound argument for pessimism that I want to show my students. Any ideas?
Rather fervid googling turns up not a single first-hand report of attendance at the Colbert Report yard sale. Obviously, it wasn't a big advertised thing (which would have created an unwieldy mob at odds with the intentionally low-rent vibe of the bit), but the customers certainly did seem like regular folks. Has anyone seen reports re: how it actually went down?

At the opening of the "Colbert Report" Know a District segments, he uses a a silhouette type of profile of the Congressperson about to be introduced. The person is blanked (blacked out) but the background is still featured. The background is usually of that used for their official office photo. So. How does one create a picture like this?

When Colbert was still on The Daily Show he did a bit pretending to be, I believe Hunter S Thompson when covering the beginnings of the war in Iraq or Afghanistan. He wore a safari type hat that was pinned to one side, along with a cravat or cravat-like scarf. Can anyone find this? I'm sure I saw it on thedailyshow.com, but it might have come from youtube.

Awesome, secret, impossible-to-get-in-to things, Part II: 3 friends and I decided on a whim to drive out to D.C. for the Stewart/Cobert rally on the 30th. We'll be staying with friends (maybe in Philly, maybe in the D.C. area), so that's taken care of, but what else should we do? [more inside]

Stephen Colbert was just holding up a jersey on The Colbert Report (4/15) that was: part (1/4) Flyers jersey, part Sixers jersey, part Eagles jersey, and part Phillies jersey. Like a beautiful Philadelphia sports patchwork quilt jersey shirt. Can I buy this jersey? Does it exist outside of The Colbert Report?

Which Colbert Report episode had a video clip supposedly showing the person Sen. George Allen called "macaca" wearing a name tag that said "macaca" and being happy to be addressed as such? I'd also appreciate a pointer to a clip if one is online.
Can someone who speaks Hungarian tell me whether the voting is over and Stephen Colbert is really going to have a bridge in Budapest named after him?
