All Hail the Enthusiast

Not everyone understands why I love Jimmy Fallon so much but I don’t understand why they don’t understand. Not only is the dude a triple threat but he is so generous in his enthusiasm that people miss how clever he himself is. He’s a bright, unifying force of everything that actually works in mainstream entertainment, and his account of the SNL40 afterparty–at which he managed to get Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, the B-52s, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney and freaking Prince to jam–validates my love forever. (Let the record stand: My 2015 goal is to see The Tonight Show filmed live.)

"All, everything I understand, I understand only because I love."
