The amount of
events that had to transpire to make this a head
shaking picture is spectacular:
And for those of
you who haven't followed The Journey for over 4 years,
here's a video that explains everything at lightening
Amazing isn't it?
Oh and in case it wasn't clear enough in the video,
Carson is indeed still on the air having switched back
to his music format after Fallon was announced as
Conan's replacement. It is a much better show,
the show he should've always been doing and looking
back on the last decade, the "talk show" type show he
tried to do is just a weird blip in a strong
music-based interviewing career. As a comedian he is
just... whew. It just doesn't work in that setting.
Random funny comments during an interview? Totally
capable. I don't think people realize what a
skill/talent it is to have a comedian's chops (I do
not have it). You can't just be "funny". You
have to be much, much more.
And, well, clearly
- I'm nowhere near even his worst show. Which is why
it takes quite a bit of humility to put this video
together and tell this story. "Cooking For Carson" is
a great bit -- if you're on the air against him. If
you're sitting at home bloggin? It's remarkably
pretentious and arrogant. <shrugs> I had to
make the best show for if I was on the air and
still think it would've been a funny weekly bit. Just
never got the chance. Ahh well, you just keep on
Also, how funny is
Talya's father's response to Carson hearing we were
getting married? LMAO. He asks me if I'm sure about it
and Allan goes, "Do you know Adam?!?!" HAAAAAAAAAAAA.
That's just awesome. "Oh, so you're aware this guy
marries often?" HA. For the record, as I said in
the video, Carson hasn't a clue who I am.
Nothing I ever did concerning him ever aired on
CBS. And, well, it wouldn't work now if it was. He's a
normal weight and doesn't come off like an absolute
ASS on his show anymore.
And congrats to
Allan for being a subscriber to The Greek Theater for
37 freaking years. That's... that's unbelieveable. His
portion should be on the air Tuesday night if you'd
like to TIVO Last Call with Carson Daly on NBC.
procrastination on the edit kinda has to stop
