Watching Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack.
Good evening to all of you.
Is there a Scott Keith rant for IYH: It's Time? Can't find anything anywhere.
http://www.fightbox.com/en/blog/item/8984-blog-feb-2015Here is a really good little column about the current day "smart mark". Also check out dudes podcast, good stuff.
Brian Williams will say later on he enjoyed SNL 40th last night.
As innocuous as it is, I think WWF changing its name to WWE was the final straw for their ratings. If you look at the charts, Raw's ratings fell from the mid-4s to the 3's immediately after the change and stayed there. I think it was the timing of it all that made it happen, though. If they changed the name in say, 1999, I don't think it would've impacted the business one bit. But coming after all of the stuff that happened in 2001 - WCW and ECW going out of business, The Rock taking time off to do movies, Stone Cold turning heel, the failure of the Invasion, etc., it was the cherry on top of a sharp decline for the business - the last confirmation that wrestling was no longer "cool" anymore.
Jim Carrey just won the night
http://411mania.com/wrestling/the-smark-retro-repost-in-your-house-its-time/Only one I could find. Looks to be an old one. I thought he did a redo of it, but I guess not.
Didn't the name change and Austin walking out happen within the same week?I remember Rock cutting the "taking ball and walking home" promo and ending it with "Get the F Out!"
Most people still call it WWF.
Austin walking out came in June. The name change was in early May.
Excellent writing.Have you ever heard Morbid Angel?
What irks me is everyone forgetting the 4 star match he had Flair the Raw before his walkout. Flair was freshly heel turned and appeared to be juicing while Austin had his working boots on.
I hope somebody takes a shot at George Carlin for not making it to SNL 40th.
I am aware of them but not a huge fan. Six Feet Under is my favorite death metal band.
They showed the first episode last night
Louis CK spotting.
What is this SNL 40th going to be?
I think it's going to be a lot of skits, musical performances and tributes while SNL25 was more clips
A slurp job of epic proportions.
I imagine any comedian that is decent and/or successful got an invite. He's also been a host twice, so he better show up.
Dave Chappelle is there, even though he's never been on SNL. I think he's there to honor Eddie.
Too bad NBC isn't follow up SNL 40th with The Slap. The irony for a self-important social commentary would have broken the scale.
I was listening The Sword, it's a doom/power metal band.
Oh, man. I used to watch the shit out of that show when I was a kid.
I like The Sword, some good Stoner Metal, light one up.
He might be there to do a quick skit with Eddie about lack of black comedians as well.
Brayden Schenn, You are my only hope.
Freiya has some badass riffs.Ever heard The Wytches? They're also from the stoner vibe.
Hope NAT X shows up.
Speaking of SNL, remember when Cuba Gooding Jr. ruined his credibility as an Oscar winning actor by doing Boat Trip with Horatio Sanz?
I know Chris Rock is doing the monologue for Eddie
Yeah that's all good stuff
Did a bee sting Chevy Chase's face?
I went to a UCB show and got Horatio Sanz to do an entire monologue about Boat Trip. Hilarious
Chevy Chase just seems incredibly old while Martin Short hasn't seemed to age much at all.
I hope it's funny and not just a slurp job.
Snow Dogs too in the same year.
It's rare when a good actor decides to be Brendan Fraser.
Bon Jovi is what Jericho is going to look like in a few more years.
Peyton Manning sighting! Brady is throwing footalls in Boston, while Manning is doing SNL 40th! That's why Brady has 4 and Manning has only 1! *Slurps Brady some more*
Brady > Manning
Manning >>>>>>>>> BradyWhen it comes to hosting SNL.
Manning should give that cheating thing a try, maybe he'd have 4 too.
That bit he did with the at-risk kids was hilarious.
My name is Aaron; I am 33 years old and seriously considering a trip to Cedar Point to ride goddamn roller coasters. Yup, normal.
His cheating would get intercepted in the most crucial moment.
That's perfectly normal.
I'm out of the roller coast thing by now, but it's not weird. At my age, I prefer more fun rides than thrill rides. Loops and corkscrews need more time to recover unless I take Dramamine.
You better want to come to Cedar Point.
One Big Happy... ? The fuck is that?
I was listening to Reign in Blood, great album but not Slayer's best.
Kanye? What the fuck was that?
Sounds like what we'll see with Reigns in a few weeks.
Yup, Fallon. And then Timberlake. Ha.
Random: a chick I work with mentioned having a 21 year old daughter, and said "bullshit, unless you had her when you when you were 8 or something you do not have a 21 year old daughter, you're younger than I am". Turns out she's 40. And I didn't even say that to flatter her or anything, I actually thought she was like 28 or so. So now all the childish jackasses I work with think I'm in love with her. On the hand though, a cute young looking 40 year old chick seems like she wants that good Irish dick. Or I'll just give it to the daughter..
Older chicks know shit that would blow your mind. Go for it.
This is pretty good, but no Parnell is weird since he raps so often.
Chris Parnell's life is one big joke on him
This opening is good, but it doesn't give me much hope for funny show, just mostly slurp jobs.
I have this big crush on former teacher of mine, she's not MILF level but she's older than me. But I'm dating now.
You don't gotta tell me man, my ex-fiance is 44. Older chicks are the shit.
What are you hoping for?
See which of the two isn't familiar with the Irish Curse.
This is like Hogan-Austin-Rock last year.
I have no idea anymore at this point.
As I Said earlier, I think Lorne wants more live comedy versus SNL 25 which was all clips
God this All Star Game "tip off" show feels like it is going to last two hours.
She's pretty cute too. Not really hot, but an easy 6.5, and has a great personality. Everyone else there is fucking a coworker, might as well get in on it.
Joe Piscopo? I'm sold.
I know everybody in the credits except Win Butler and Pete Davison.Fuck, forgot Don Pardo is dead again.
A young Joe Piscopo taught us how to laugh.
"I'm not a hater, I'm a player, so I fucked them both. In the name of the streets...."
Win Butler is Arcade Fire. I had to look him up. Pete Davidson is a new castmember.
Underrated Steve Martin movie: Bowfinger
Then you'll like Red Fang and Black Tusk
Not the same without Pardo.
Bret? I never said anything about a crack ho.
I know we have a few New Yorkers on here but count me in the group that doesn't not get excited about the letters M-S-G
It's a great movie, but I don't think it's underrated. It was acclaimed upon release and did well at the box office
Chick behind Lovitz with a nice pair of tits.
Truly an institution. Without him it really doesn't feel the same.
Anyone watching WrestleMania XII on the live feed?
Nah, I want to stay awake
I don't remember the acclaim it got at the time, you hardly ever hear about it now considering the two guys in it.
Nah just watched it.
Fuck it I'm putting on Clash 22, b/c 21 was so good, and the cast of the NBA and the SNL all star team jerking each other off is boring.
Christina Aguilera.DAMN GIRL
I don't fine her funny.
What does Melissa McCarthy have to do with these guys?
i must say child birth was good for Christina Aguliera's body.
She's part of the Lorne train now. Ghostbusters.
Tepid response for Miley Cyrus.
This skit was funny. Now it's ridiculous.
Is there any city collectively more full of itself than New York?
That's pretty random.
Xtinas jugs having an A+ night for the NBA ASG
NAS! MARKIN' OUT BRO
LA is the only competition.
She's performing on the NBA All Star game and looks great.
Pull your damn pants up, Nas.
Paul McCartney is such a fucking big deal that all the other people onstage probably feel lucky to be there with him.
She's performing on the NBA All Star tip off show
A maturing Joe Piscopo left Saturday Night live to conquer Hollywood.
LA folks are full of themselves, but not really as a city, if that makes sense.
The funny thing about this is Miley is the only one younger than 40 maybe (depending on McCarty).
There might not be a bigger deal in the world than Paul.
I'm watching Christina like Chapelle in the sketch. "C'mon, titty..."
McCarthy is mid-40's.
Considering it's a city with nothing going for it but weather, any pride is too much.
WWE Fast Lane is 7 days away and is on the Road to WrestleMania yet it only has 3 official matches lol.
Toronto, but only to the rest of Canada.
I don't really think that but know you're a Bulls and Bears fan. Just being a dick!
"Now, here's a bunch of clips that were funny at the time but pieced together so quickly that they have no humour here."
Not really. I've been laughing. They will probably show more clips throughout the evening
Yeah, I kinda figured. I grew up there, but I'm glad not to be a part of a major city anymore (I live in OKC these days, but it really really doesn't count).
We lost Farley and Hartman like consecutively. That was depressing.
"Do you remember when you were in the Beatles?...that was awesome."
Navel gazing is an industry unto itself now.
It's funny enough. And everybody wants to laugh, which helps a lot. Plus, we all want to see the clips, which will be shown when needed.
Yea, within 5 months of each other
Are we counting the Kane-Big Show Battle of the Titans Clash for the last time (God willing)
Do you think NBA players would be more inclined to want to participate in the 3 point and dunk contests if they made it like a Best of 5 (Skills, Rising Stars, 3 Point, Dunk, All-Star Game) with East vs. West and the winning conference gets home court advantage in the NBA Finals (like baseball does for their all-star game and the World Series)?
Farley was good, not my favorite, but I still liked him. Losing Hartman was so hard on me. He was so good, and we didn't just lose him for SNL, but for Newsradio, Simpsons, Futurama, and god knows what else.
No, because that would be retarded.
I was at that Jagger in the mirror episode!
I'm not a huge basketball fan, but I REALLY wish they'd do the same thing with the NHL, and the NFL for that matter.
Not yet..I'm hoping it becomes a "loser leaves life" match before its offcial
Buried Alive with both losing.
All the clips of Poehler are from sketches I don't remember.WHAT A SURPRISE.
His daughter is at the show tonight
This game is just never going to start.
Anybody else getting feedback during this SNL play back?
The NBA is the only sport whose all-star festivities aren't screwed up. The weekend contests are usually fun even in the years the dunk contest underwhelms. The All-Star games are stunt shows done by the biggest stars in the game. There's no other All-Star game/event/weekend that is as popular as the NBA's. Why change it?
Beyonce's still hot, but man she used to a fucking 10/10.
Has that game not even fucking started yet? I'm not even watching and it's irritating to me even
I think around 2008 or so she was 20/10.
It's time to name the last 20 years of all stars!Formerly of the Charlotte Hornets...you know it's Glen Rice!
It might just be me, but I'd like to see some actual starters for NBA teams in the dunk contest and defense played in the All-Star game.
It's infuriating. Bring out all these washed-up entertainers and then having these drawn out intros. Just start the fucking game
2005-ish Beyonce =11/10
Laraine Newman looks great. She's the anti-Chase.
I wouldn't. Because it's a scrimmage.
More ranting: the 25 year import rule is fucking BULLSHIT. I understand why it was put in place, but it's 2015, people aren't saving shit by importing a car from Europe. And fuck your safety and emissions shit too, it passed the EU tests, it's safe for American roads. Like the 4 Americans that want a Pagini Zonda are even going to drive them enough to have a wreck. Piss off.If it's for sale in the U.S. then I should buy it in the U.S. That I have no problem with. But if I want a Zonda or an R34 I should be allowed to have one. Fuck the feds for crushing perfectly innocent cars.
All these later clips are completely out of context for me. Left after the glorious Ferrell period.
She's still a 10/10, probably a 12/10 but no longer an 18/10
Those kids have to be tired as hell
Good for Aykroyd, he's down to "really fat" and not the "hugely godawful fat" I saw him last at.
None of us want to be that fat. Especially old stars.
More dancing? Are you shitting me?
Husband says 2001 Beyoncé was "roughly a 23"
NBA and NFL are becoming way too commercialized.
They tried the East vs. West stuff for the All-Star Festivities last year and it was a complete disaster.
To be fair, neither state was the current state of Mr. Belding fat. "Mr. Belding fat" is something horrendously all its own.
Does this stuff really appeal to the casual person?
And you know the anthem will take it to at least 5min past tip-off time too.
The single hottest time I recall Beyonce is when she did the DirecTV upgrade, upgrade commercials. My god she wasn't human.
Lol. NBA All Star Game: The Musical!
I want an 8 man 1-on-1 tournament.
It was really nice of Kanye to make his career. I love how supposedly smart people stan for Kanye, Kim, Beyonce basically all those trash people as symbols of empowerment and great role models.
I think it's probably there for people that don't really like basketball, but are watching with their spouse or are just flipping through the channels.
Now with LINE DANCING!
Even with hyper competitive athletes, the defense is only strong in the 4th quarter in these games (Kobe locking down on Lebron was great a couple years back). But those things you mentioned, while true, aren't really irksome to me.
Yuuuuuup, that Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart movie is going to be huge. Mr. Belding huge, lol.
All-Star games suck which is a fact people forget and then remember every year.
I still watch but the Ferrell period is the last time I would watch every week.
I really should take a look. Some of the HoF battle royales in WWE in the recent times had some INSANELY fat old schoolers. Like DiBiase was 400 pounds.
SNL special and Walking Dead for me. Maybe some more Captain Toad if I wanna stay up later.
That sounds about right
Like with Dane Cook, I'm still waiting for Kevin Hart to be funny. I keep hearing stories that he's humorous, though, so I have my hopes up.
The Canadian National Anthem? Is Steve Nash even in the game?
Yeah but people complain about them every year and still watch, too.
Of course they'd do another "Celebrity Jeopardy."
Yea, they are doing skits this time. Cool.
Its funny cuz he's fat.
New Jeopardy? 5 hour circle jerk worth it!
Had to turn ASG off. Those dancing kids creeped me out. Like a horror movie.
It just won't end
I will take The Rapists for 200
No he's not.
McKinnon's Bieber might not be able to hang...we'll see.
Cameraman fucked that up? How?!
