something surprising!

Maybe it was the effect of the alcohol on my brain Saturday night, but SNL accomplished something it hasn't in ages for me: be actually funny.


I haven't been watching a lot, to be fair. Honestly, I hate watching SNL. I hate the timing. I hate having to turn on a TV when I'd rather be asleep. but I'm not really asleep. Follow? Of course you don't. Check it out here.

I was told the Taylor Swift episode was good too, but that I missed.

And, sadly, I was not very familiar with January Jones before Saturday night. But now I'm familiar! One day, I will knock a goal off my list: watch a full episode of Mad Men.

Jones shined, I think. The parodies were ace. Rear Window, the party planning, even Kristin Wiig's questionable skit with her a newsreporter and Jones as a confused DQ employee. Jon Bovi! That was great.

But then: the Black Eyed Peas were the musical guests.

Be sure to tune in next week, Joseph Gordan Levitt (500 Days! 500 Days!) and ... um some band will be on.

Has SNL been funny to you lately? Am I on a lot of drugs for thinking this? Y/N? Doesn't January Jones have the best non-porn star name EVER?

also, my prof called me out on my blogging today. erg, I don't think I'm exceptionally cool or anything, as a classmate in the back suggested. I mean- if I was cool, this would get more than 40 hits a day. :P


  1. i watched gerard butler's episode and jj's that's all for this year.

    u r right, im not in the mood for TV at 11:30 at night. poor guys.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
