The now forcibly retired blog about: Photography, Life and the occasional UFO...
I will miss Jon's honesty and willingness to call anyone, and I mean anyone, out when they are spreading the BS pretty thick. Who's left? Fallon, a child/man who fauns over everyone and is so pathetically phoney it's nauseating. I think not. How about James Corden. His focus seems to be on D list wanna be celebs or has beens that don't mind his constant yelling. Seth Meyers might evolve into a reasonable social watchdog. Colbert, well we will have to see how much CBS shackles him. Kimmel, he has the chops but not the right vehicle. And finally the new guy replacing Jon, I know nothing about him.In my day music was our social conscious. Neil Young, CSNY, The Who, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, Pete Seager, Bob Marley and Joan Baez to name just a few.With people turning off mainstream network tv in droves maybe we will see a resurgence of meaningful, constructive social commentary in music once again.
I think it'll be interesting to see what Trevor Noah brings to the table (an outsider looking in), although he has some very large shoes to fill. Stewart rose to the level of American icon, and did so with a biting political ferocity not frequently experienced in a nation so dumbed down, it cannot perceive its own ignorance. He did so by exposing and ridiculing that ignorance in palatable, bite sized spoonfuls of humor and insight that we could not help but laugh at, and ultimately reflect on.
