1. Stephen Colbert on why he loves “The Best Imitation of Myself” from Ben Folds Five:

    When I first heard the song just a few years ago, I just thought he had written it for me. But then when I listened to it more, I thought it’s just a beautiful expression of how we are toward each other as people. We don’t think that we are sufficient for each other - that no one wants to know the real me or the whole me.  I just want to give you the part of me that I think you expect to see from me. And almost as if that little part of me is more than the whole of me because I don’t want to give you any of the poison.
