good night

I normally don't like to watch late night talk shows. I find the guests are typically nervous, affected, or in some other way annoying. And many of the hosts are just terrible hosts who don't know what questions to ask to establish or maintain any kind of momentum in their interviews. But tonight was a reasonably good night. Sarah Chalke (Elliot on Scrubs) was on Jimmy Kimmel. The interview sucked because he couldn't stop asking her stupid questions about her boyfriend and whether or not he pays rent to live in her new house. But I found out she is Canadian so that was kinda cool. After her, Robert Smith came on. He doesn't interview too well as he seemed to be shaking from nervousness or general discomfort with the whole situation but it was good to see him on TV. He performed at the end of the show too. And then on Craig Kilborn (God that guy is annoying), John Cleese was the guest and then Morrissey performed. Can't wait to see him at the Now and Zen concert even though he looks like he's in his 50s (actually he's 45) and so many think he's nothing but a vain, egotistical wash up. I think he's just a victim of the press. Who knows, who cares. It doesn't really change the music now does it?

I like Craig Kilborn. Maybe I just have a really bad sense of humor. Actually, you won't be seeing him on late night much longer because tonight (Friday) is his last show after a 5 year run. Damn, I'm going to miss his 5 questions.

I think Conan is the only one I like because he's actually funny and intelligent. The rest, bah.

You ever get a chance to watch Charlie Rose on PBS? Totally different format, but you actually get a sense of what the person is about rather than sound bytes. Definately not everyones cup of tea, but I love the way he interviews and the format.

A few months ago there was a spread on Morrissey in GQ and I couldn't get over how old he looked now.
