    SNL - Why you should keep watching


    I missed Saturday Night Live last weekend. I was(strangely enough) sleeping. I woke up and the internet told me I missed a good one. I've been able to find nothing about the show except the highlight - the part where Ashlee Simpson showcased both her voice throwing skills and her virtuosity at improv dance. Or, oops. She's not that great a ventriliquist, and without choreography she looks like a boob. So there's already a website that has just about every format of video of the 'incident' before it was cleaned up for the tape-delay west coast show. Enjoy...

    This is the real reason I watch SNL. To catch the live screwups. And that's the beauty of the internet. I never have to miss one again, because someone is watching. But I'm curious to know how the skits went, and if there was anything political. The only joke I've heard(besides the unintentional comedy of Ashlee) is the one from Weekend Update about Kerry going goose hunting, then later telling reporters that the other guys with him had raped, tortured and killed the geese in a manner reminiscent of Genghis Khan. I'm paraphrasing from a paraphrase so that's not going to be accurate. In any case, no one is talking about them if there were any really great jokes/skits/lines. Too bad...

    my favorite incident last season -- Raechel Dratch was doing her "Debbie Downer" skit and she couldn't keep a straight face about halfway through; they all started laughing -- which just made me laugh harder.

    Yeah, SNL rocks. Love it. This week's was "eh" but I rarely miss it.

    Enjoyed the "25 Years of . . ." book too, which is out in paperback these days . . .

    Heh, yeah that was my favorite moment too...I'm a huge fan just of sketch comedy, so a few bad shows won't scare me away. That Debbie Downer sketch was funny, but I sort of thought that it was a)only because everyone was cracking up, and b)the flubbed line was about North Korea, which made the tragedy seem less tasteless.

    This season when they tried it again and no one laughed, no one in the audience did either really. The "downer" line about the hurricanes in Florida just seemed insensitive too. Oh well...I'll still be watching.

    Cheers,
    M@
