Jimmy Fallon - “Troll Doll Jingles” at Counting Crows concert
I heard this (and every other song parody he did on SNL) like a gazillion times back in high school when I was FREAKING OBSESSED with him, but now I finally get to see the live footage, thanks to the roomie! And this version has Wallflowers and George Michael! The ending is the best.
"By the way, I just want to say before you show it that I- we were talking about how I started on the show, and I just wanted to thank you for giving me the shot, ‘cause I was really desperate. I was literally hungry all the time. I had no trajectory that showed me I would… I was about to… the day before you guys hired me, I was gonna quit everything, like comedy and everything. So uh, so thanks, anyway. Thank you."
"This is the day we went on the air. There’s me, I’m such a sweet young girl. … I was noticing in this picture, everyone’s looking at the camera except you. You’re looking away. You’re looking to a better future than the rest of us. Even then you knew, ‘I’ve got other shit to do.’"
Conan 2013-09-19 aka Louis CK day
No 2nd guest, just Louis CK forever. Highly recommend you watch the full interview - he lays it down for parents and people addicted to their phones, they reminisce about old Late Night days, his thank you to Conan <3, and a clip of young Conan with Louis the tree throwing apples at Bob Costas.
One of my more, um, creative posts. haha check out the variety of handwriting styles: “hot” written in a fiery blaze, happy cursive whee~ (I can’t even remember what wedding I supposedly went to with my teacher?!), “j-o-u-r-n-a-l” all spaced out artistically to playfully hint at the double meaning of writing IN a journal and writing “journal”. (ahaha jk, obviously I was just too sleepy for correct grammar.)
I especially love
"I did homework and I did not like it."
A very unflattering aspect of my personality that has persisted to adulthood: if I am unhappy, I will make you know it. Is that a very Only Child thing?
