Per Leslie’s request, here’s some blog CPR. I’m in New York, interning here for the summer: End Times www.thedailyshow.com On my first day I and another intern went out to shoot footage of gyro cones (the big rotating things of meat that chawarma innards are shaved off of), then I burned some DVDs.
