I Want An Uncensored Version of "I'm Fucking Matt Damon"

I wish that Sarah Silverman would put out an uncensored version of "I'm Fucking Matt Damon", the song and video that she showed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. I also wish that Jimmy Kimmel would put out an uncensored version of "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck", song and video. I was hoping that ABC Television would have put out an uncensored version on You Tube or iTunes, but no such luck so far.

NBC had a really good sense of humor when they put out Justin Timberlake's video for "Dick in a Box" , totally uncensored, during the Christmas holidays (that video was really hilarious and genius, and kind of signaled SNL's return to rare form).

Jimmy and Sarah, come on now, put out some uncensored versions of your songs (you are a better singer, Sarah- and Jimmy just copied your song, really).

Living to be 150 Years Old? It's A New Barbara Walters Special

Barbara Walters has a new special coming on ABC Television prime time next week. The commercial says that technology is becoming such that people will be able to live to be 150 years old. I'm thinking: do I want to be that old? I mean, what would my body be like? Right now I'm doing OK...I'm in my young forties now, and I can identify one or two recurring pains. How will those be in 40 years, let alone another 110 years?

So much stuff can happen in 150 years. If someone who is 150 years old was to go back to when they were 21 years old, which would be 129 years ago, the year would be 1879. Who would be the President then? I don't know, but whoever this 150 year-old person is, if he still has a sharp mind, he would remember the name of the President, and he would have some memories of what it was like to live then. In his lifetime, he would have experienced what America was like during slavery, during all the world wars of the 20th century, and he would have known what America was like BEFORE automobiles and airplanes.

Being able to have seen all that in one lifetime, I ask myself this: would I want to experience all that in one lifetime? I think that dying has its purpose. I wonder how living so long can be made enjoyable? I haven't seen the special yet, but...answer me that, Barbara Walters!
