Fallon has Weird Knobs

Man I'm still blogging about my New York trip in May.

So the purpose of the trip was to do Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,
where I also got to meet the Lonely Island guys who were on the same show as me.
Also to my surprise his stage manager used to be my neighbor when we were little.

But this is about my dressing room.
When I got in I noticed this knob.
This is what I do. When I go into a new room or house I want to know what all of the switches on the wall do.
I couldn't figure out what it was for so I followed it up the wall
where I found this other knob.
Now this knob is in a speaker in the ceiling. So if it's to control anything, only the tall or exceptionally long armed (law men and gorillas) can adjust it.

It turned out that both of them don't do anything anymore.

They may have been to control the volume on what's going on onstage. But that is merely a best guess.

Hmmmmmm, VEDDY interesting.....

Topanga said...

Or maybe it was a bug listening in on your conversation.

Wait, Jimmy Fallon's studio is in Dharmaville?

Amy said...

It looks like the system they had in my church growing up - it was only in a few rooms, but it allowed parents with noisy kids to listen the the service from a classroom or the mother's room (while feeding a baby) so they wouldn't bother anyone else.
I don't know what the knob on the ceiling does, but the black knob turned the speaker on & off and adjusted the volume. So my guess is that guests used to be able to listen to what was going on on stage while they were in that room, via the speaker on the ceiling.

At the theatre I used to work at we had those so we can hear what was on stage. But it looks like there was a nice flat screen tv right next to it to see the stage.

Derek Brink said...

I was going to say pretty much exactly what Amy said.

So...good guessing, Mr. Garcia!

Rachel said...

I agree with amy we have them at our church too in the cheche etc.

We have buttons like that in out church, so you can hear the talks from the chapel when you are in different rooms.

CeeHubb said...

That was such a great show. Jimmy is so awkward and funny.

The two of you should have had a battle of wits. Or a dance off. Can you do the Roger Rabbit like he can?

Continue being a great entertainer.

Ann said...

You met a former neighbor? Small world, small world.

Breigh said...

omg I hope you offered to be in The Lonely Island's next video! :)

Clare said...

I hope Fallon won't be suing you over your accusation that he allegedly has "weird knobs." :)

Avinash said...

I'm on a blog. I'm on a blog. I'm on a motherfucking blog!

Jennifer said...

Maybe the button on the speaker itself was the original volume control, but then they realized that the majority of the population is not freakishly tall and added the wall control.

Did you turn the knobs and wait to see if something blew up?

Mark said...

We've got the same knob and speaker where I work, (Havertys Furniture). The knob is used to control the volume of speakers for our intercom system. Like if I'm in the break room and want to ignore pages, I turn the volume down!

B.R said...

Me rikey velly much! And yes, I hope you get to be in the Lonely Island's next videoclip, J-Man! And Jimmy Fallon! What's next? Oprah? Unless you've been on Oprah...


Paul Spooner said...

Every time you turn the knob sommewhere in New York someones lights go on and off...

JimPel said...

The long Island bros are hilarious... Did you get to do any skits with them?

Diana said...

I'm insanely jealous. I've been dreaming of getting my hands on Jimmy's knobs for years. I hope you enjoyed it.

Christina Bauer said...

Have you asked Jimmy about this? Maybe the room is being bugged and he doesn't know it...or maybe he does! Thanks for always giving me something to laugh about, Jorge! Love you!

James Hernandez said...

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady.

The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
