You know how it's 99% disgusting to throw-up? It stinks, burns, splashes everywhere, makes your eyes water, and cramps up your stomach muscles. BUT, there is the 1%. That far corner of your mind that you don't want to admit is there in the middle of your five alarm fire of hot mess. It is the part that is enjoying the vomiting process. Hopefully, my blog is that 1% .

My Late Night Take

Who is Jay Leno? His is not quirky, vulgar, snarky, eccentric, sarcastic, edgy, or even funny. You could make the argument that he used to be funny. But that was way before he had a regular gig on television. I understand late night show hosts strive for broad appeal in an attempt to gain ratings but Jay does it all wrong. He comes across as a hollow shell hoping that his wide smile will endear. I am a little bitter because the efforts of Conan, Kimmel and Letterman are obvious. They have worked hard to earn their place. Sometimes they are crude and offensive but they are also inventive and appreciative of guests and audiences (maybe not staff, but who gives a shit). Leno should get into one of his everyman late model cars that only he can afford and drive down sunset into the sunset and leave the entertaining to entertainers.
