Conan Takes Over "Tonight Show"

I'm feeling rough,
I'm feeling raw,
I'm in the prime of my life.
Let's make some music,
Make some money,
Find some models for wives


I will be the first to admit that I sometimes exert a tendency to be overcritical of meaningless things; but on the flip side, when I love something, I love it blindly and wildly.

And I LOVE Conan O'Brien hosting "The Tonight Show".

Typically, even when I love something, I read all the reviews and blogs just to get a general sense of the mainstream opinion, but I'm not even doing that today. I don't care if the critics didn't like it, I don't care if old people didn't like it, and I don't care if you didn't like, I LOVED IT.

I really liked the opening with Conan running across America (and of course forgetting his keys back in New York) and I REALLY LIKED the classic, Golden-Age-Of-Hollywood opening theme. It set a very grand and spectacular tone for the show and it felt more legit than just retro.

Ferrell was the perfect first guest and Pearl Jam not only rocked but also reminded me why I hate the rest of modern music.

I think Denver Post television columnist Joanne Ostrow nailed it when she wrote that since Conan is so goofy and so NOT Los Angeles, he is going to provide a good outsiders perspective to the inside world of entertainment. I can't see Conan ever becoming too "Hollywood" and I think he'll be able to keep everyone a little more honest and self aware.

Can't wait for more. It's nice to be excited about late night TV again (especially at a decent hour - Conan airs at 10:30PM in Denver) and I now know what I will be falling asleep to for hopefully the next decade.

It's always good to have those things settled.

This is our decision,
To live fast and die young.
We've got the vision,
Now let's have some fun.
Yeah, it's overwhelming,
But what else can we do.
Get jobs in offices,
And wake up for the morning commute.
Forget about our mothers and our friends
We're fated to pretend


"He's Just Not That Into You" and "Revolutionary Road" are the big headliners this week as far as movies go.

"Not That Into You" was actually pretty decent as an ensemble romantic comedy and if nothing else, it's worth it for Scarlett Johansson's... um... acting (haha sorry babe, you know I couldn't let that one pass!).

TV shows available on DVD this week include: "Army Wives: The Complete Second Season", "The Jetsons: Season Two, Volume One", "Prison Break 4: The Final Season", "Raising the Bar: The Complete First Season" and "Weeds: Season Four".

For a complete list of new DVD releases this week, click here.

I'll miss the playgrounds and the animals
And digging up worms
I'll miss the comfort of my mother
And the weight of the world
I'll miss my sister, miss my father,
Miss my dog and my home
Yeah, I'll miss the boredom and the freedom
And the time spent alone.
We're fated to pretend
