A Quick Comment on Comments

My latest distraction has been caused by My Latest Distraction and other blogs as well.  All you bloggers out there will understand where I am coming from.  I know for me, blogging isn’t just about typing for the sake of typing.  I thought it was a great way to share my opinion on things and start a conversation.  A blog is a great way to start that conversation since it has a section for comments.  If I didn’t want to hear people’s thoughts on the topic, I would just make a website.

To alert people to our lovely page, we have it set up to broadcast to other areas on the web.  One in particularly, I find extremely frustrating….Facebook.  It is great, don’t get me wrong.  I love that people come and read what we have to say based on a link posted in a status update.  But if you have something to say about what was written here…share it with all the MLD readers.  Don’t just comment on the Facebook update, or the Tweet, or whatever various method you used to find us.

Comment here on MLD.  Let us know we are loved and appreciated.  I think most bloggers out there would agree….we thrive on comments  🙂



I’m even following Jimmy Fallon on Twitter

When Conan O’Brien took over The Tonight Show this month, we decided to record it and see what he was up to.  We’re Conan fans, so we had some built in interest.  As part of the deal, we added Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to the recording schedule as well.

We had watched Late Night during Jimmy’s first week back in March, but hadn’t paid any attention since.  I can’t speak for Angie (or anyone else here), but I can’t get enough of the show.  I enjoyed the first week, but it’s just gotten so much better and Jimmy Fallon seems much more natural in his hosting role.  Even more compelling than that is the fact that the humor is just how I like it, and the content really appeals to me.  No other talk show that I’m watching has segments on the Palm Pre and Apple’s iPhone 3GS, or demonstrates the XBox360 Natal.  Tonight he‘s playing Tiger Woods on the Wii in Times Square!  I’d go so far as to say this stuff isn’t on anyone in television’s mind outside of G4 and one or two other niche basic cable shows.

Bottom line, I’m hooked on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  The Roots‘ contributions as the show’s house band don’t hurt, nor does the drama of the Late Night reality show, 7th Floor West.
