Was out of town last week running amok. Here’s a little catch up.
SNL The Creep
This was waiting for us on our DVR when we got back from vacation last night. The Jesse Eisenberg episode got a couple of big nods in relevance this week (and for the last season or so). First Mark Zuckerberg drops by during the opening monologue. Was this an ego trip for him? Do you think SNL asked him to stop by or did Mark seek out being on the show? John Water’s cameo in the above skit — The dark older side of Weird Al’s “White and Nerdy” IMHO — seems like Vincent Price’s intro in “Thriller” and the feat. Nicki Minaj lend legitimacy to their ability to produce a listenable/danceable song. Also, within the past season, more and more celebrities have been stopping by: Anderson Cooper and Paul Reubens from last week’s episode come to mind, but it seems to be a growing trend, which means there must be some demand and clout to the show again.

Jonah was in love with this video this weekend. From the TMBG album “Here Come the 123s”
Tie Tying Machine
Brilliant. I love the sound. I want to mix that into the drumbeat of a song.
Squirrel Obstacle Course
That reminds me. I want to check out THIS book.
