Because I know you all love it when I rant, here's my opinion about the goings on with Conan O'Brien.

In case you haven't heard, apparently NBC has decided to move Jay Leno back to 11:30. Why? Because his ratings are in the toilet (which, according to NBC "is exactly what we were expecting," which, according to me, "is total BS."), which are causing the local news ratings to be low, which, in turn, causes the ratings for the Tonight Show to be low. Maybe it's just me, but the obvious solution here seems to be to remove the blood sucking leech, but apparently NBC thinks it's better to move it closer to the heart.

Now then, you should've been able to deduce my opinion about the situation by now, but just in case you can't: it pisses me off. Conan is really funny, and his comedy is smart. Leno, on the other hand, has been doing the same shtick for the last 17 years, and frankly it's getting old. Conan keeps his jokes contemporary, whereas Leno is still hawking headlines. With the internet, we get our fair share of news fails (failblog.org and probablybadnews.com jump immediately to the forefront of my mind).

Anyway, as it stands now, NBC is giving Conan the choice of moving to midnight, thus giving Leno only a half hour, or allowing him to jump ship. Again, this seems foolish, because it would make a whole lot more sense to truncate Leno's show and keep him in the same time slot rather than shuffling his dopey, big-headed, flat-falling jokes, thus inconveniencing the rest of NBC's employees. That way, when his show inevitably fails, nobody else is affected. As the tabloids tell us, Conan is really pissed about all this, and frankly I don't blame him. He's being completely jerked around.

What's my opinion? I think Conan should move to another station. Seriously. I think the only reason NBC is doing this is because they're currently 5th, and they're trying to find somebody to blame for their crappy ratings. Maybe it's things like this that are making people think twice about their choice in television. Fox apparently already has stated they would be interested in bringing him over there, but there's a whole mess of red tape they would have to slog through.

Links below if you're interested. Apparently Conan will be discussing the rumors on tonight's program, so hopefully we'll find out once and for all where he stands.

*Freaks the crap out about The Office*

Kay, I'm done.

What do you mean I haven't had a substantial update since the 2nd?
leujin: (Default)
Dude. It's Conan's last night on Late Night. I'm so excited for him to be hosting The Tonight Show. But no Conan until June. I'm so excited to see what ridiculous thing he does. I'm like... Yeah, I can't even describe it. I just wish I could have been there.
leujin: (21 and 24 (Seinfeld with a unibrow))
Does anybody actually miss when I updated 3 times a day?

So, what's been up with me these days.

Nothing! I'm working. It's boring. The most interesting thing there is that I had this SUPER obnoxious author who was being... well, super obnoxious. I finally got her out of my hair. Basically she was just super demanding and everything had to be perfect, and regardless of any good reason that I gave her, she would NOT take my advice, on design, or layout corrections. It drove me crazy. The higher ups finally just said "give her whatever she wants so we can just get her book done," which I always love hearing.

Oh, also, I'm going paintballing with my department vs. the illustrators next Saturday. Again, my work is way cooler than yours.

I'm sad about the season finale of Venture Brothers. Like... seriously. It was a good episode, but... gah!

Our house is old and crappy and falling apart. Good thing we're renting, not renting to own or something equally fruity, because this house is seriously old and in bad shape.

Um... that's pretty much it. Now I'm hungry, so I'm going to go get "chicken" from Wal-Mart.

*squees about Heroes*

So many plot twists... so many questions... gegnivtshcpth >.<

the following contains me ranting and spoilers )

Can't wait for next week. I'm already on the edge of my seat.

This is my first post from Oklahoma City. We got our cable and internet and phone hooked up. So... I'm not dead, and I might actually be keeping up with everybody's journals and stuff now, despite missing like 2 weeks of goings on.

The dog is now an outside dog, and she seems to enjoy it.

Our house seriously has like 8,000 mirrors. I'm not even exaggerating.

I'm hungry, and I really have nothing terribly important to say. We still have crap-tons of unpacking left to do, most of it is Liz's mom's stuff. Liz's mom has a job, I've got a lead on something that I need to follow up on, and one of their family friends wants me to redesign their logo. I'm gonna do it, just cuz I'm a nice guy.

Oh! I finally got my birthday present(s) from my mom a couple days ago. It was only a month and a half late, but it's still better than my dad, who hasn't given me a birthday presents for... oh, going on 8 years.

Anyway: Sephiroth action figure (which is fucking awesome and some of you probably know what I'm talking about) and Serenity. She says there's more, but it just didn't come yet.

So, now I think it's time to go watch TV.
leujin: (Great scott!)
Dear Season Finale of Heroes:

8-O

Planet Earth is seriously one of the coolest shows I've ever seen.

Granted that I'm a huge geek and I love basically everything that Discovery puts on, this is still super awesome. If you don't know what it is, essentially it's a nature documentary, highlighting a different area for every episode. They get a lot of impossible footage, some of which features stuff never before seen by people (such as the mountain episode featuring a snow leopard hunt).

I dunno. I'm just saying, it's pretty cool, and if you happen to get Discovery you should definitely check it out.

It's new journal style and icons time!

I also made a desktop theme, because I have some kind of crazy Hiro obsession.

And why the hell shouldn't I?

So, last night the preview for the new turtles movie came on (which I determined I'm going to have to be REALLY drunk when we see, because... well, just look at the crap they churned out for the new series), and I decided I needed to remind myself why I loved that show so much as a kid. Fortunately I bought the first two volumes of the DVD set (about a year ago and never watched them >.>), so I popped one in.

Let me just say that I without a doubt remember why I fucking LOVED that show. It's hillariously 80s, and I appreciate a lot of the humor so much more than I used to. Plus, I'm pretty sure in one episode somebody called someone else a pube. I may have misheard, but it was still funny as hell at the time.

So, in short, TURTLE POWER!!!1box
