Late-Night TV Music (Sorry, Masturbators Edition) | Aug. 7, 2019

Apparently I accidentally created some clickbait the other day.


In hindsight, I guess I should have seen it coming: A couple of days ago, you might recall, I facetiously posted a XXX Edition of Late-Night TV Music, based on the fact that two of the previous evening’s performers, Ava Max and Ex Hex, have a combined total of three Xs in their names. Just a dumb little joke to help move my shitty little word train down the track. No big deal. Until this morning, when I woke up to find that visits to the site are going through the roof — because people searching online for XXX videos have found the link. I’m not sure if that’s hilarious or sad. Either way, the moral of the story is clear: From now on, I should give all of my posts porny clickbait titles like Horny Stepmoms Edition and Hot Co-Eds Edition. Of course, if I do that, I should also change the subtitle of the site from Hearing Things 24/7/365 to Disappointing Masturbators 24/7/365. It does have a ring to it, doncha think? Anyway, on to Wednesday’s performances: Billy Corgan and Smashing Pumpkins serenaded The Late Show With Stephen Colbert with Knights of Malta from their ridiculously overtitled Shiny and Oh So Bright Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.; Big Sean went from a double date to being Single Again on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon; and country singer Chris Janson showed two sides of his musical personality on Jimmy Kimmel Live by counterbalancing the summery single Good Vibes with the southern rap-rocker Say About Me. If any of that gets your motor running, do what you gotta do. I’ll look the other way.
