Conan Performing for Google
Google gets an awesome Cinco De Mayo.
Conan, a Class Act.
I sat down on the upper levels of the Gibson Amphitheater. I had an expensive margarita in my hand because I felt the occasion called for one. I was wearing my Conan O Brien T-shirt two of my most foxiest and coolest friends gave me as a birthday present many years ago. You could feel the collective energy roam the theater. Any moment now, one of our generations most beloved icons will appear on stage before us.
What unfolded before us was Conan’s version of a classic variety show. Singing, dancing, great comedy bits, special surprise guests and of course Chuck Norris clips. Conan was so on top of his game you realize that NBC did screw the pooch by sacking his show. This guy has got wit and charm overflowing from his 9 foot tall lanky body, with plenty left to boot.
So here I was waiting for Conan’s 60 minute interview. Was he going to be unleashed? Tear Zucker and Leno a couple of new assholes? Well….not really. He maintained civility and kept true to his word about hating cynicism. Did he have his disagreements? Yes he did. Did he criticize Leno? Yup. But overall, I loved his attitude about having no regrets about his choices that he has made. He was cool, smart, and was open to the opposing viewpoints that were presented to him.

Conan O’Brien on Space Ghost
In honor of the last week we’ll ever see Conan O’Brien for a very long time, I decided to post this video of Conan on the Cartoon Network show, Space Ghost. This is one of the many reasons why Conan’s support is so widespread. From his early days all the way up to now, Conan will chop it up with anyone.
I will seriously miss the dude.

Jimmy Kimmel on Jay Leno’s 10 at 10
Wow, this is just embarrassing. The man upstairs doesn’t close a door without opening a window. And this right here is Kimmel taking the opportunity to expose Leno’s true colors.
“Conan and I have children,” said Kimmel. “All you have to take care of is cars. We have lives to lead here. You’ve got $800 million for God’s sake. Leave our shows alone.”
I know that Leno has taken over The Tonight Show, but with all this bad publicity, does anyone think that this could actually work? Are old people that strong of a demographic? How is Jeff Zucker not fired already? Who holds him accountable for all of his bad mistakes? I guess it’s our duty to not watch anything on NBC with the exception of 30 Rock and Community.
But if Leno’s your cup of tea, then…screw you?
Quotation Rotation | Conan O’Brien on Fulfilling Your Dreams
“Hosting The Tonight Show has been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for me — and I just want to say to the kids out there watching: You can do anything you want in life. Unless Jay Leno wants to do it too.”
