Taking Groban Lessons?

The album cometh, and as dates are becoming real and songs are getting announced, I couldn't help but laugh as I was reminded of the journey from the fan point of view....all of the waiting and watching and elation over every tidbit of information.

I watch "The Daily Show" regularly.
Last night, at the end of the show, Mr. Stewart went on a bit of a ramble that made me think he took lessons from Mr. Groban on how to build anticipation for a project while divulging the smallest amount of information possible.

Here's a transcript of Jon Stewart's words, captured at the end of the "Daily Show", September 7, 2010:

"At the beginning of the program, I said I was going to have an announcement, an announcement about an event, if that’s what I am announcing. So, let me announce, I, Jon Stewart am announcing that I will have an announcement sometime in the near to not-so-near future. And I don’t want to give away too much, but let me say this: the announcement that I make may be the most important announcement in human history, equivalent to three or four Sermons on the Mount or perhaps 7.3 Gettysburg Addresses. Whatever scale you use, what I will be doing, what we will be doing is big and secret, so secret that my staff doesn’t know what it is. I don’t know what it is, but I have my suspicions. And let me say, if I am right, it’s going to be huge."
