Children of the 80’s, your favorite news anchor is back and on your medium of choice (the internet!). In this sentence I would normally introduce Kurt Loder, link to a bio, and talk a little bit about how for a few sad/happy childhood years he was my #1 source of what’s going on in the world, but this sweet MTV promo does such a good job of all that:
I’m not sure where global salvation comes into play, but on the show Loder will chat with filmmakers, musicians, and other notable personalities laptop to laptop (hence the punny title). Below, hear him talk with My Damn Channel regular Harry Shearer about a possible Spinal Tap reunion(!!!):
Yes, it’s iChat. Yes, it’s a bare bones production. And yes, the host is a helluva lot older than I remember. But it’s also Kurt Loder. Maybe it’s because I’ve was conditioned during my formative years, but I’ll listen to that deep, melodious voice talk about anything. Future episodes are on the way, though there’s no word yet on who’s going to be at the opposite end of Loder’s webcam.
In the mean time, check out more good Shearer footage as My Damn Channel CEO Rob Barnett talks to him about his particular brand of comedy:
