Sometimes my dad would let me stay up late on Fridays to watch Dave with him.
David Letterman is leaving this earth (rather, he’s leaving television, which is reportedly worse). As he does so, his biggest fans are coming by The Late Show to say goodbye.

“When you retire, this is it,” proclaimed Tina Fey on her final Letterman appearance before Dave hits the road. “I’m never going to wear a fancy dress on a talk show again.”

On Saturday, I watched a not-particularly-realistic 2D projection of a teenaged girl in teal pigtails singing in a computer-generated voice mesmerize a concert hall packed with teens. For two hours. And it was actually pretty fucking amazing.
