snlThus was Justin Timberlake’s supporting cast on Saturday Night Live just now, where they can still surprise. It was a kick, but a lot of them looked old, really really old.

(I’m climbing into bed now and biting my knuckles to stop the screaming.)

 

 

Lucky us! Bad Lip Reading’s done the inauguration

Festivus!

festivus-poleIt’s here at last.

Remember Glenn Beck, the batshit crazy one who was a bit too  much even for FOX? The one who found Communist-conspiracies hidden in the 1930 bas-relief sculptures of Rockefeller Center? The guy with the blackboard? The one oddly obsessed with Hitler?

He’s on his own these days, has been for a while. He now has an online “TV show”  and his webzine The Blaze, always good for a little recreational surfing. There’s an article there today that has the right-wing noise machine all a-twitter.

The article is written by a guy who says he was at Columbia with Obama and also says Obama wasn’t really there. Let me repeat: he says he was somewhere with someone who wasn’t there. Or, Obama was there but no one saw him. Or Obama got terrible grades but he wasn’t there. Or, he was a foreign exchange student and also he wasn’t there. And his evidence is, well, here it is:

I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right.

Reading it all will waste your time, but if you’re sufficiently masochistic, it’s here. Being at The Blaze put me in mind of Lewis Black’s classic take down of Glenn Beck. Pure comedy genius. And this one is worth your time.

I’ll take the laughs where I can get them. And this made me laugh.

How do I explain to other adults of my certain age that I am dyyying to see this movie?

Does she do drugs?

So, I’m emptying the dishwasher, headphones on, listening to Colbert from last night. His guest is the actress Diane Keaton who apparently thought she was being funny. She wasn’t; major fail.

She was so weird she even threw Colbert a few times. I have never seen that happen before.

 

Colbert Report won a Peabody!

The show got the award for its series of Super PAC segments. Good for them.
