Studio 8H at 40 Years

So unless you were living under a rock, have no social media presence, or just plain don’t care* then you know that last night was the 40th anniversary special of the seminal comedy sketch institution Saturday Night Live. There have been reams and reams of print spent on the cultural impact of this program over the past 40 years, the stars produced from the show, how this is basically the Harvard for comedians, etc. I could...

60 Hours in Dallas for the National Championship

I said there would be no regrets for this one. I lied. This isn’t┬áregret for staying home instead of traveling to Dallas to watch Ohio State take on Oregon.

To me this is holiday perfection… The key to this entire endeavor is to make sure you see the video with the banter between Bowie and Bing. “Oh, it’s been a long...

Holiday Countdown #2

As midnight is about to strike on this Christmas Eve we come to the penultimate song in this countdown. This is really the only ‘classic’ Christmas song on this countdown because it is really the only classic that I care to listen to more than once each holiday season. In reality if this was a public vote I would put my money on this guy to take home the title… I don’t have any snarky commentary here. This one...
