I’m sorry, but I’m just going to say it…I don’t see the appeal of #TimesSquare. As if we aren’t exposed to enough #advertising everywhere we go, here we’re full on bombarded by it. And it’s crowded, noisy, and a perfect example of American excess. These lights are on 24/7 (minus 1 hr/yr during Earth Hour, when some of the lights are turned off). During peak usage, they use enough energy to power the entire country of Turks and Caicos, or about 161,000 average US homes. And it’s twice the electricity required to power ALL of the casinos in Las Vegas. I’m not impressed, I’m appalled.

I was so excited that we got group 1 #tickets to #LateNightwithSethMeyers, until I realized that the lettered #ticket groups went in first and they were all noticeably younger than us. We’re part of the ‘old’ people now. Which I would normally consider a good thing, if the #show wasn’t so clearly favouring the young’uns

I have my doubts about the decision-making at NBC, but I was still excited as hell to see this place and go watch a show taping

I had no idea it was so big! (that’s what she said). I’ve seen this Matisse in books before, but you don’t have a proper idea of the scale until it takes your breath away.
