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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
