Sebastian, You’re in a Mess…

Belle and SebastianBelle and Sebas­t­ian released a sound­track to the Todd Solondz movie Sto­ry­telling. I need to buy it.

Also, I’ve got 4 tick­ets to the Strokes and White Stripes show in august at Radio City. I am some­what psy­ched, that is for sure.

  • get that sound­track! high­ly worth it.

  • Hi eliz­a­beth… did you grad­u­ate?

  • Oh, appar­ent­ly there is a track called “Dia­logue: Conan, Ear­ly Let­ter­man”, which sounds as if it’s some kind of intel­lec­tu­al­ized com­par­i­son of two of the goofi­est guys ever on TV.

    My per­son­al vote is for Ear­ly Let­ter­man… actu­al­ly I think he was at his best between 1985 and 1995 (just before he host­ed the Oscars). I used to pro­gram the VCR to tape Car­son and Let­ter­man every night, so I could watch it the next day after school.

    With Conan, I think it’s fair to say that he is the smartest in all of late night, and his writ­ing is arguably the best, (Jon Stew­art includ­ed).

    But it is hard to argue con­vinc­ing­ly that any of these guys would be where they are if not for Dave.

    Any­way. I owe my sense of humor to Dave, and I still main­tain that he’s a clos­et Lib­er­al… look here, and here. Peo­ple tell me oth­er­wise.

    i found this link:

    JB: David [Let­ter­man] changed the way talk shows were done, in an amaz­ing way. He couldn’t do what John­ny did, and he found a whole new way to do his show.

    SY: How did he change it?

    JB: Where before you saw the walls of a build­ing, with Dave you saw the gird­ers that held up the build­ing. You saw what was going on behind the scenes. He made it more real­i­ty based and found humor there.

    SY: He also made fun of talk shows.

    JC: Yes. And the next step after that was Conan, who actu­al­ly mocked what Let­ter­man was doing. Conan has a seg­ment called Small-Town News, based on Letterman’s real small-town news items. But it’s all fake. It’s a small leap, but it shows the pro­gres­sion in talk shows as we see more bou­tique shows. The next vari­ant will be as to who will come up with the next total change, to take the form con­cep­tu­al­ly to a dif­fer­ent place.

  • no, i’m going to be a junior next semes­ter.
