It reminded me of this old crack whore who used to live in the same shithole hotel I did in Long Beach. She'd sit on the stoop and shout gibberish in between taking dudes into the alley and blowing them for that rock and then stuffing the toilets in the common bathrooms with strips of newspaper, shitting in each one and flushing them all in a row.

>> Palin literally sounded exactly like that. Between that and that weird sweater thing she was wearing I gotta wonder how hard she's been hitting the pipe.
LOL! NAILED IT! :P

I loved 'Bern Your Enthusiasm' the other night so very much. Susie and Leon were spot-on, and it was just a perfect mash-up sketch...

I don't watch the show anymore but I do check YouTube for the political satire. This past Saturday's opening was pretty good. I don't care for the woman who plays Hillary Clinton but I really did like the phrase 'stuck in the middle with me'.

Most of last night's show was pretty bad, but the opening was fine, and see the 'Racists for Trump' ad - that's good... And a bit on Update where Pharoah does quick impressions of seven black comedians was fun...

"By personal request" doesn't specify if the request (for Hammond to reprise his role) came from Trump or Lorne, but if it was Trump, that's ONE thing he's done that I approve of...

Prince tribute last night was really cool.

Jimmy Fallon stood on home base without an audience and introduced clips and told the story of Prince at the after party for the 40th anniversary last year...

They showed all of Prince's four appearances on the show, never-aired footage of that party, and 4 of the 7 Prince Show sketches that Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph did between '04 and '07...

Prince was 22 when he debuted on SNL on 2.21.81 (Season 6, 11th show).. Charlene Tilton hosting... Todd Rundgren had been the main musical guest and done two numbers... Prince was an additional guest towards the end of the show... 'Party Up'. This was a big night in SNL history for another couple of reasons... Charles Rocket said 'fuck' on the air, and he, producer Jean Doumanian, Gilbert Gottfried, and (another cast member) Ann Risley were all fired - the show took a month-long break and came back for just two more shows to finish the season.... Episode also marked the first time Eddie Murphy did 'Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood'...

9.24.89 - 15th anniversary show, preceding the season premiere by a week... 'Electric Chair'.

2.4.06 - Steve Martin (14th time as host, he's done 15, Alec is now ahead by one...), 31.12. 'Fury' and 'Beautiful, Loved & Blessed' with Tamar.

11.1.14 - Chris Rock (40.5) hosting. 'Clouds', 'Marz', 'Another Love'... Rare, for sure, but I don't know if it's the only time it's ever happened... Instead of the usual two sets (or occasional-but-rare third), Prince did one long set... Lady with him is 3RDEYEGIRL.

2.16.15, wee hours of the morning, Jimmy recalled it was past 4:30... 'Let's Go Crazy'. Jimmy, Chris Rock, Maya, others, jamming with Prince at the Plaza... Lot of great energy and joy in this - really glad we got to see it... Edit - ooh, more, different footage, shot by Tim Kazurinsky -

Time was then filled out with four Prince Show sketches - #3, from 10.9.04 with Queen Latifah; #4, a 12.18.04 Christmas one with De Niro; #6, with Steve Martin - Prince is THERE that night, but they did not do the Real Person Confronts His/Her Impersonator bit that we'd been expecting; #7, the final 'Prince Show' from 4.14.07, with Shia LaBeouf.

Fred played Prince eleven times between '04 and '12.

8 people were shot to death in Ohio on Friday and it hardly even made the news because of Prince. I really didn't care about Prince because I really don't care much about any celebrity. It was too bad he died relatively young but there should have been maybe a half an hour of coverage, not for days. He wasn't the king of England or one of our former presidents. I know he had a great body of work and he was talented but enough is enough.
