Norm Macdonald Says Eddie Murphy Wouldn’t Play Bill Cosby On The “SNL” Anniversary Special


at the top of the glorified wrap tape that was billed as SNL 40 it was great to see mr. mike doing his original, odd, inexplicable interview with belushi. all my good friends who worked on and love the institution of SNL deserve to congratulate themselves and the party sure sounded fun with jimmy fallon and we all should be happy for them but did it have to be such a bloated self-satisfied paen to the three amigos – lorne, paul and steve? the edgier innovators and antecedents have been marginalized or ignored – father guido sarducci /o’donoghue/ tom schiller/ jim signorelli et al. on prominent display were the three elements that are deeply indicative of where SNL has been all along and where it continues to be: 1) the endless artless californians sketch, 2) deniro’s mirthless awkward self congratulatory praise and this story about eddie murphy. really? as part of his long awaited welcome back you ask one of america’s premier black comedians to take a pot shot at the pathetic state of the former premier black comedian. black on black satiric violence at the behest of dem white folks. taken together with the sad inversion of racist rationalization they still practice over there as shown in the dismissive seinfeld / ellen cleghorne bit it’s clear they just can’t get over being so live from new york and so white. but then that’s just #SNL40

no one, no one (even if i have to agree with k west) can come close to this woman right now musically. across all categories and this incredibly generous performance is worth watching just to see how much she has and how much she gives. not that my opinion matters. it’s just http://ift.tt/1LaRcOn

How To Become Batman


INVISIBILLIA – this is the BEST radio experience right now. captivating subjects brilliantly structured delivered in a relatively light i.e. not heavy handed way (sometimes a little cutesy but it works) you HAVE to listen to it. this one explains precisely what you see when you’re blind – and that you do in fact see…this isn’t just

This is what’s bad about not living in NYC – not getting to wear a teddy bear coat.

my dog rumble up close and too personal. she was born on valentine’s day (that’s a lie) and has a lot to say about by the way rumble was named after a bump in the road which says a lot about her personality.
