Another SNL sucks post


The end of summer is an exciting time for many people - you start school supply shopping, your favorite shows end their summer hiatus, and there's no more excuses for licking Cheeto dust off of your fingers and lulzing around on Tumblr, because, you know, you have school now and everything -but the end of the summer is doubly exciting for late night comedy nerds. The Saturday Night Live season usually begins in late September or early October, and late summer is when we get first news of cast member changes and host and musical guest announcements. For some of us, we pee in our pants out of excitement (will there finally a person of color in the cast? will Frabby be in a skit together?), and for everyone else, it's just another chance to yell "SNL SUCKS NOW" in every every other day leading up to the premiere.

NBC recently announced that SNL cast member Jenny Slate, who began her first episode by dropping the f-bomb on live television, will not be returning this season. Many people I know dislike her greatly, and it's not because they're jealous of her Tina-Tina Chaneuse jacket; her Hoda Kotb just isn't gelling well with many SNL fans, and apparently, Lorne Michaels. However, four new cast members have been announced, and basically forget the rest of this post BECAUSE LORNE FINALLY HIRED ANOTHER BLACK PERSON.

HIS NAME IS JAY PHAROAH AND THAT'S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.




At least we have a back-up plan in case Kenan is too busy to play Tiger Woods again.

  1. This guy looks like he was hired specifically to play Obama.

    This show should be canceled and Lorne Michaels should be sent to the Hague.

  2. The Will Smith impersonation is great.

"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:
