I think that we can all agree that the best-selling duo in rock history, Hall & Oates, are pretty freaking awesome. They recorded some of the greatest songs in pop history, including "Rich Girl
", "Kiss on My List
", "Private Eyes
", "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)
", and "You Make My Dreams Come True
". They were incredible live
. And they participated in the greatest back-alley song-writing duel of 1978
. Also Daryl Hall considers himself a modern-day warlock
However, last night the world learned that Hall and Oates's are sad. They are extremely saddened by the upcoming departure of Alan Colmes from his show Hannity and Colmes, and they have chosen to express their sadness through song

Are you, like many others this summer, considering avoiding the costs & hassles of pricey foreign or domestic travel by having a "staycation
" at home? Daily Show commenter John Hodgman (ably backed by Jonathan Coulton on the strings) enumerates the benefits of a "Holistay"
(much better name) to help you make your choice.

"My Shtick? Being Black."
You probably know Jordan Carlos from his role on The Colbert Report
. Like me, you may not have known he didn't actually work there: "'Saturday Night Live' has no black writers. 'The Daily Show' also doesn't have any, and neither does 'The Colbert Report,' a show on which I've played Stephen Colbert's black friend 'Alan,' a member of the staff. That's right. 'The Colbert Report' had to hire an actor to play a black person who works on the show
