If you’re having a bad week here’s just a little reminder that the the worst is over. Just hang on a couple more days and TGIF!
Well, it’s back to the grind after a long, boozy, enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend. But so much happened! And all while Lauren was away. Hard to believe.
(sorry, we just never get tired of this)
We need to find way more excuses to post these. And, more importantly, Anheuser-Busch needs to bring these back.
We never get tired of this either. EVER.
But this is NOT the Danza Moment of the Week. That would be unfair to you and unfair to us.
We never get tired of this. EVER.
If you had only one day to live over and over again, what would YOU do?
There is a larger, deeper post somewhere in here about the existential subtext to Groundhog Day, but we have to get back to Saved by the Bell. Maybe next year!
Somehow, despite committing our life’s work to documenting and analyzing SNL, we had never seen this phenomenal sketch before. But better late than never.Vodpod videos no longer available.
If you were wondering what kind of sketch we absolutely love, you now have your answer.
(also, do you think today’s date, 1.11.11, will overwhelm robots’ circuits?)
We don’t know why we were so fascinated by these clips from Entertainment Tonight reporting on the passing of John Candy, but we were. We guess it’s just own morbid obsession with death. Or John Candy. Or Entertainment Tonight. Or Richard Lewis. You decide!
It really is a shame that Wagon’s East was Candy’s final movie. We recall our older brother (twelve years our senior) taking us to see it, and it was terrible. And we liked everything back then. Our basic criteria for a decent movie was a) functioning audio and a relatively smooth picture, and b) popcorn. So it had to be bad if we walked out disappointed. And we guess it killed Richard Lewis‘ “It Guy” status.
Nevertheless, Cand developed an impressive, admired body of work, and we can’t thank him enough for Camp Candy.
Don’t forget, Scarlett Johansson returns to Studio 8H for her third hosting turn this weekend. Inevitably, there will be some variation on this sketch (but if Ryan Reynolds pops up again, we won’t complain):Vodpod videos no longer available.
Did you know that, according to IMDB, ScarJo’s first credited role was as Laura in the 1994 Elijah Wood “family film” North? In his review of that movie, Roger Ebert said “I hated this movie. Hated, hated, hated, hated, hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it,” and then later on Siskel & Ebert remarked, “I hate this movie as much as any movie we’ve ever reviewed on the 19 years we’ve been doing this show.” So, you know, check your local listings!
