I have no idea how legal this is, but a guy who has lots of videos up from The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson has posted my segment from February 29 as well:

CBS has a copy of it on their site too

, but apparently that's only viewable inside the US. If you want to see those pictures Craig and I were looking at and find out more about them, I've written about all three: Picture 1

(Rudolph), Picture 2

(the star spewing jets of gas that Craig made fun of), and Picture 3

(the cluster of galaxies with the swoosh of gas). I've heard from a few folks with the Chandra Observatory - the one that took the last picture -- and they were thrilled it got press. I'm wondering if they had their volume turned all the way down when they watched... And just in case anyone wonders if I really can play the harmonica, the answer is "kinda". I have further evidence of this being the case

. And I have to admit, I'm generally in pretty good company there

, too.
