Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

SNL, surprisingly, does a couple of things right this weekend….

This Saturday’s SNL featured several highlights, including T.I., the return on Amy Poelher (doing Hillary, and Weekend Update again), and of course, a couple of stellar Digital Shorts, which has become the norm as of late. A lowlight, surprisingly, was host John Malkovich. He was horribly creepy in any sketch he touched.

1st: Hillary cold open. Instant classic.


2nd: Digital short featuring Andy Samberg, and his old buddies Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer(from the Lonely Island comedy troupe). Excellent (and subtle) cameos by Justin Timberlake and Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

Warning: Sensitive Language


And 3rdly: A great Digital Short by Kristin Wiig, reprising her excellent Virgania Horsen role.

Drive By Truckers – Let There Be Rock (live) [w/bonus]

“This song’s about whatever it is out there that saves your life, hang onto it and go for it with all the gusto you can…”



“I saw Kansas like, 8 TIMES, and I dunno, I…fucking HATE Kansas. But you know, tickets were about 6 bucks…and you could sneak in a bottle and you could sneak in a joint,…… and if you were really lucky, you might end up squished up against somethin’ FEmale….and just maybe it would give you a reason to get through your week. And that’s what this song’s about This song’s called ‘Let There Be Rock.’ “


THIS is why I LOVE music. I don’t religiously listen to DBT’s, but THIS is why I LOVE music. I’ve got nothing else to say about it. Thanks for the Drive By Truckers for getting me through my week. Thanks to Muzzle Of Bees for pointing me to this vid.

There’s an extra-good PostSecret update this week…

And by extra good, I’m not sure what I mean, by that.

Post-secret intrigues me. On one hand, it’s disturbing that so many people have to live with secrets in their lives that terrify and consume them. On the other hand, it must be so liberating to get something off of their chest, albeit anonymously.
