THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS ON TELEVISION THIS TUESDAY TMBG perform Alphabet of Nations with a special extended bridge just for the broadcast on the Late Show with Conan O'Brien. The guys will be wearing suits and ties. Taping is in the late afternoon. Then John, John and Marty will then be whisked away to do a FREE SHOW at 7pm at Borders in Columbus Circle to sing songs new and old, and to sign, sign, sign everything you got to sign. This is kicking off a promotional tour in bookstores across the US. See Linnell play the accordion for a whole set! See Marty Beller playing the drums! Witness Flansburgh learning how to play bass!


Operator Dot asks "Did you know the Gigantic DVD has over 4 1/2 hours of special features? You think you've seen the movie, but this super-deluxe DVD is so much more. It is a once-in-a-lifetime document of TMBG's career. Includes tons of rare video performance and interviews all lovingly put together in an incredibly stylish package,and we've got your copy right here at, so just tell us where to send it!"


Operator Dot with this helpful tip: "Did you know there are four different ecards at Your Mom's Alright with Mike Doughty, Wicked Little Critta, Santa Claus and the highly entertaining Cyclops Rock."
