Garrison Keillor is kind of a genius.
Posted 05/21/2015 12:10:09 EDT
Yes, for sure. I've had the best time going through old clips for some of the Globe pieces I've been writing about Letterman.

We vote with our remotes.

But how do you really feel?Seriously, his cranky anti-comedy comedy wasn't for everyone.
Posted 05/21/2015 11:24:56 EDT
Agreed, that one tickled me, too.

Maybe Harry has big plans.

Like the way you put in "better"to remind us of that guy named Vedder
Posted 05/20/2015 08:48:12 EDT
Always the question.

Ripoff or extending and adapting an unconventional tradition that he liked? But I hear you.

I hear you... I see that thing you're talking about as understatement for than as wooden...! But you articulate it well.

YES! And when you think of how Peggy has changed (and remained the same in essential ways), you can really see the subtleties of Moss's performance.

I wondered, watching Betty smoke, if that was the reason for the lung cancer....

Some agree with you, ginny, for sure. But that grin on Don's face when inspiration strikes him, and hope returns.... It seemed unmistakable to me.

Point taken, Footballfemme...

You make me want to write an entire piece about him! A great character, for sure, played by an excellent (Boston) actor.

The whole series had pp. Check out "Happyish" on Showtime, too. It's also about the ad world and filled with real products.
Posted 05/18/2015 09:01:27 EDT
Check this one, PL, see if you know what I mean...https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=224&v=DzIea4w1F6E

Ha! That's my excuse for, like, everything.

Here's a story I wrote last year on how Letterman has been marking time for a while now.... http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/television/2014/04/12/this-late-hour-dave-seems-marking-time/cGPC2ItqKzzHGWt more »

I hear you, PL. I was going out on a bit of a limb, with not enough room to explain. But think of Howard Stern, too. He and Letterman both turned their focus to laughing at "real people." more »

What a great point, citykidz. I'd forgotten about that connection.... more »
