WOW. I've never heard anyone say that they liked that sketch.
I always would change the channel when they did that.
I guess different strokes for different folks....

The weirdos will not be formally normalized. Nor will they be
normally formalized. Invisibilty after all is a relative thing.

CNN showbiz tonight showed the video in its entirety last night.
Will Chris Parnell soon be as fat as Farley with his lifetime of free cupcakes from Magnolia?

Parnell would be cute thin or fat.
I'd date him.
Maybe we should hook up Sean Lennon with Parnell.
Then I'll date the cutie Andy Samberg and the 4 of us can double date and go to Magnolia.
And by the way, they aren't kidding about Magnolia bakery.
The stuff that they make is soooooo fucking delish.
Everybody goes there for a fix.
I have a friend who when he visits NYC goes right there.
We are planning on going this Spring when he visits and just bringing some chairs and spending the evening in there eating.

But you need the latest version of Itunes to get it.

I posted this mp4 of the video last week:

saw an intersting fact in the paper today... it's been downloaded at youtube 1.9 million times as of yesterday. add in itunes and all the other backdoor posts... man, that's a lot of viewings. defintiely has become a pop culture phenomenon all on it's own. my wife even made me download it and show it to her family who have strong ties to nyc... they all doubled over with laughter. amazing how this thing has really touched a lot of people.

Roger Daltrey once said something to the effect "Rap isn't music."
"Lazy Sunday" is hilarious but could they have come up with something
so funny and high quality with another musical format like blues,rock
or jazz? What rappers do just might be a little overrated compared to what rock musicians do.

Roger Daltrey may not be totally of the mark on that one.

This is funnier than it would have been in blues or rock because much of rap has become so bloated with the tired money, guns, and bitches mantras that it is a genre ripe for parody. So ripe, in fact, that some rappers engage in self-parody these days. Or it's funnier just because gangsta rap the cultural strain the most antithetical dorky white dudes talking about cupcakes, google maps, and dreamworlds of magic.

Anyway, that's an over-analysis of a stupid hilarious SNL sketch.

Saw this article about it in the NY Times. Interesting for a while.
Read.
