So apparently all the rage right now is making jokes about Making a Murderer – that Netflix documentary series that everybody’s been watching. It seems like every other joke at open mics is about it (exaggeration).
Yes, I watched the whole thing pretty much straight and yes it is an addicting show. And yes you should watch it. If you have seen it, you’ll find this video pretty funny, which Meyers used as his cold open for his first night back to Late Night.
Walking down Steinway Street in Astoria, I stumbled upon an establishment I have grown to love, the Salvation Army Store. You can’t pass the Salvation Army Store and NOT go in – you never know if you’ll find a Ukrainian unicorn place setting. So I did go in. Pretty rapidly I realized there was nothing there of immediate need (out of place settings). However, I did browse the books section and found this gem: Leading With My Chin, a collection of stories by Jay Leno spanning from his childhood to the time he officially took over as permanent host of The Tonight Show. The sign on the bookshelf read “All hardcover books – $1.” I looked inside the cover: “US = $22.” Booyah! This is what I live for! THIS is why I go to the Salvation Army Store.
