Stephen Colbert starred in Stephen Sondheim's “Company" (with Martha Plimpton and Neil Patrick-Harris). On Fresh Air today Colbert explains how Sondheim sent him a letter asking him if he would be in the production: 

[He said that] against his instincts, he had a good time on my show [The Colbert Report] and would I consider playing Harry in Company? And he ended the letter with the sentence ‘You have a perfect voice for musical theater.’ And I read it to my wife and she said, ‘Boy, you have to do this. No one, let alone Stephen Sondheim is going to ask you to do Sondheim.’ And I said, ‘You’re right, I have to do it.’

You can watch Colbert in Company tonight on PBS Great Performances

Neko Case on Joni Mitchell: “She’s kind of a boss. She’s kind of a pant-wearing boss. I kinda don’t want to meet her…I don’t want to ruin my golden ideal of Joni Mitchell…She’s like a Transformer. She’s like twelve feet tall in my imagination, wearing some flowy pants with Japanese prints on them, smoking three cigarettes at once and just kicking ass on some acoustic guitar and painting her own portrait at the same time. And she’s probably got a lumber mill in the backyard.”

Earlier today in the Sub Pop mailbag, we received an enthusiastic message from a college student running for homecoming queen. She asked for a video affirming support from our one time recording artists, Nirvana, in order to aid her campaign in becoming homecoming queen. We dressed up and obliged.
Video forthcoming with the script: "What’s up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LET’S GO HOAGIES!" Or something like that.
