Wednesday Sept. 27th

Another speaking engagement was announced today for Anderson, this one at the University of Buffalo. AC will be at the Alumni Arena, North Campus, on November 11th as part of a guest lecture series. Ticket prices range from $14 to $34 and can be ordered online or by phone. For more information follow the link or you can call 716.645-6147, ext. 227.

I'm just amazed that tonight was an abbreviated 360. There was a press release today, from CNN, saying Anderson will be broadcasting from the Congo next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I was expecting AC to be absent Monday and possibly Friday, but not to cut out early tonight. You all know how bad I am at predicting the unpredictable Mr. Cooper, so we'll just have to wait and see what the next few nights bring.

I received more information on Anderson's appearance with Walter Cronkite at the University of Judaism in LA in February. If you have $2,500 you can be a benefactor. For that contribution you get a ticket to all the lectures in the series, and you get to join the speakers for a cocktail reception, photo opportunity and intimate dinner, prior to the lectures. There is also a post lecture dessert reception and valet parking included. Wow, who could ask for more. Oh and the topper is $1700 of the contribution is tax deductible. The Sponsor level is $475 and you get the dessert reception. And if you only want to pay $240 you get a seat and the chance to see AC in person. I do have a reader who is planning on buying a ticket and she would love to find another Anderfan interested in attending with her. Email me if you're interested and I'll introduce you to each other. Tickets go on sale October 19th. Call 310.440-1246.


I noticed something at the end of last night's 360 that caught my eye. The lovely Ms. Sheryn was kind enough to do a cap for me. Do you see anything out of the ordinary?

As usual it looks like AC is multi-tasking with the laptop and the Blackberry but do you see the can of Diet Coke on the desk? How does he ever get to sleep if he's drinking caffeine at midnight?
Which brings me to the last item of today's blog. Bookasylum sent a link to an Amazon audio interview that was done with Anderson when 'Dispatches' came out in June. Most of the information we've heard before, but AC does talk about his bedtime, his friendship with Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and some of Nic Robertson's background. All this is in the extended interview that is in the right hand margin of the webpage. There is a shortened version under Anderson's picture. Just follow the link and enjoy the Andergiggles. Thanks BA!

One more thing, please CNN could we have John King for our substitute 360 host when AC is traveling, pretty please?

This is my first time posting, but you have so much information on this guy (Andy) I am absulotely in love with his blue eyes & his naughty smile. It would be nice to see John king if Andy is absent. Does anyone has his personal or some sort of email address where he actually reads his email. I so want to meet him in person :)

@flogal to send a message to Anderson and crew use the feedback option on the 360 webpage.

Hey all...I will say that I don't expect to see AC tonight or Friday. Traveling to most parts of Africa is hard as the flights only run out of places every few days.

Tonights show sounds very similar to a repeat from last week. Until next Tuesday it's probably JR360.

Of course, I've been wrong before, but don't tell anyone.

I agree - John King! John King!

Sheryn said...

Hey, can we have Nic and Peter host 360?

Just a thought! A nice thought too!

An abbreviated 360 and it appears an abbreviated wardrobe as well with Anderson & Peter Bergen wearing almost the same outfit. (And I thought that just happened at my office from time to time.) There's Anderson in navy pinstripes, blue shirt, red tie and Peter comes on screen navy pinstripes, blue shirt, pink tie. Even my roommate who's not much of a fan took one look at said "Wow that guy [Bergen] looks like a poor man's Anderson. Same idea, but Anderson just does it better."

Well, yeah.

I give them both points for not laughing about it on camera. I don't think I would have been able to keep a straight face.

I have been sending emails to that, but i guess i need attention from the MAN himself haha

phebe said...

@flogal,I know of several people who have gotten responses from AC after they wrote to the feedback address. Most had a story to tell that caught his attention and prompted him to respond. Good luck and keep us posted.

Oh man I was totally planning on going to the L.A. talk, unfortuneately...I will be extremely poor if I ever "donated" that much money. Sorry, he's just not worth it. I'll have to hope that there's another speaking engagement in L.A. SO close yet so far.

Hey Phebe - I think maybe Anderson didn't do the second hour live was because he appeared on TSR with Wolf and he was also on Paula Zahn. First the poor man doesn't get to sleep, now they don't even let him eat! I wonder if Paula's ratings are going up having Anderson on her program. It's the only way I watch! I know, I a mean person!

Since there is no Anderson on 360 tonight, do we get another set of pictures to vote on? A few anderphotos to start my friday? It would be a beautiful thing!
