Craig: It was a very weird day in L.A. as well. This morning in Los Angeles there was a huge fire at a medical marijuana facility. Smog has been awesome today.
Craig: (talking about the marijuana fire) It took fire fighters 3 hours and 40 pizza's to put it out.
Craig: We had a trusted broadcaster telling us we there were men landing on the moon. Now a days we get TMZ telling us men are landing on Elton John. It's a completely different thing.
Craig: I'm sorry today's telelvision is crap. (points to himself) Exhibit A.
Craig: Back in Cronkite's day, the only late night show that mattered was Johnny Carson. When the lights went on and Johnny Carson stepped from behind the curtain people knew it was time to laugh. Now when a man steps out from behind a curtain I know I'm at a strip club.
Craig: (talking about how watching TV used to be done as a family) My father would say, alright it's time to watch Television. He'd put on a coat and a tie and my mother would put on a pretty dress and so would I...and we'd all gather around.
Craig: I remember when our family first got colored telelvision. It's weird cause real life in Scotland was actually in black and white.
Craig: You know I love the Saturday morning cartoons, I love them and used to watch in black and white for years. Then one Saturday after the cartoons were over, Dad said surprise everyone and he brought in a brand new color television. I was like, ohhhhh who cares Dad the cartoons are over now. He's like son don't you think it's time you left home you're 35, you've been divorced twice?
