Anderson Cooper is not emo!

Anderson CooperNo, that doesn't say "Elmo," though I could understand the confusion because Anderson Cooper was on Sesame Street last year. I mean emo.

USA Weekend interviews Cooper and he talks about a lot of subjects, from the places he hasn't gone in the world that he'd like to visit (China), what's on his iPod (Marisa Monte), what he watches on TV (Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List?!), Hurricane Katrina, that he hasn't gone to the dentist in five years (I used to be like that too), and why his dog is almost human. When asked what he does on the weekends, Cooper says he works for 60 Minutes. Seems like even his vacations involve work too.

When asked if he's a geek, he says he's "geekish" but "doesn't have the technological ability to back it up, so I'm a geek without skill, which I think just means I'm socially awkward." What is a geek mean in today's world anyway? With so many people on the internet and everyone carrying cell phones and iPods and buying HD televisions, has the term geek changed?

Cooper is in Texas as I type this, reporting on Hurricane Ike, which is hitting the Texas coast today and tomorrow. (Here's more of the interview, with pics and a discussion of the brother he lost to suicide and whether or not he wants to host Meet The Press.)

You didn't close that quote in the third paragraph, and I'm confused about what his actual quote is. But I figure he wasn't the one who said "What is a geek mean in today's world anyway?"

He thinks Kathy Griffin is funny?

Well, I guess this answers "that" question.

-Steve!

I'm surprised the fact that he watches Kathy Griffin is a surprise to anyone anymore... Everyone knows the rumors and he's been seen at her stand-up show in the company of men... Besides, he was on her last season when she showed her New Year's Eve appearance.
