Daft Punk placed an ad during last week’s SNL. It contained a 15 second clip of new music. Some guy looped the 15 seconds into a 10 minute recording. Some genius added a loop to Ron Swanson dancing and suddenly it’s CAN’T MISS stuff. Enjoy:
Kazimierz Michał Wacław Wiktor Pułaski, or as his pals refer to him Casimir Pulaski, was a soldier and military commander who has been called “the father of American cavalry”. He was born in Poland before moving to North America. During the American Revolutionary War, he saved the life of George Washington and became a general in the Continental Army.
Pulaski is one of only seven people to be awarded honorary United States citizenship which is impressive, unless one of the other people is Cap’n Crunch or something. I don’t have time to look it up.
According to a google image search, someone had it out for C.P. and went around adding fake mustaches on all the pictures.
Kenan Thompson has been on SNL since
1993 2003. In his youth, he was in a couple of the best movies of the 90’s, Heavyweights and Mighty Ducks 2. Kenan was a cast member on The Steve Harvey Show which might explain why he does a decent impression of Harvey.
Here is the skit from this weekend where he helps a man get over his phobia of horses while explaining to people that his phobia is falling asleep and having his mustache choke him to death.
National’s shortstop Ian Desmond entered spring training with a decent lip cover, but compared to Joba Chamberlain he looks like Burt Reynolds.
For some reason, more than once in my youth, my mom dressed me up as a hobo for Halloween. Probably because it was an easy, affordable costume. I would wear old dirty clothes and my mom would put vaseline and coffee grounds on my face for a beard. It appears that’s what’s happening here with New York Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain’s mustache. He really ought to get a paper towel and wipe it clean as to stop embarrassing himself and real men with real mustaches.
Peter Dinklage, or “The Dink” as I assume his friends call him, is an actor who was in a pretty good movie called The Station Agent in 2003. He was also in Elf. Um yeah, he was in 30 Rock. He is in Game of Thrones. I don’t have much to say about him, as you can tell. I just wanted to say “the dink”.
Happy 50th Birthday Charles Barkley! Sometimes I forget that Barkley was more than a funny, outspoken player. He is a member of the NBA Hall of Fame He was an NBA MVP, a gold medalist on the Dream Team, an 11 time All-Star and finished his career with over 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4.000 assists. According to this picture, he also enjoyed going to see adult movies in the theater.
Argo is available today on DVD/Blue Ray and probably still in movie theaters with really sticky floors for less than you’d pay a few weeks ago. It is a pretty good flick. If you don’t trust my taste in movies (you shouldn’t), you’ll be happy to hear It was nominated for an Oscar for best moving picture. I thought that John Goodman and Alan Arkin were amazing in it. In addition, there were some beautiful steeshes. Here are some of them.
Rory Cochrane played Lee Schatz, a member of the USDA stationed in Iran when people got mad at America and started rioting. I was really tired when the movie started and I don’t know much in the way of Iranian-American relationship history so I think you’re going to want to check it out for yourself to figure out why this stuff was happening. Something about the leader being too westernized or something, but he didn’t even dress like a cowboy, so it’s hard to tell.
Regardless of what was happening in the film, Rory plays a fine Schatz, assuming Schatz had a mustache and drives people crazy when they see him because people think they know him but can’t figure out from where and then they google him and realize he was Lucas from Empire Records.
Scoot McNairy played another one of those guys who was trapped in Iran waiting for Ben Affleck‘s beard to save him. I can’t really do anymore research for this post, so let’s just say his glasses are ridiculously huge, and Scoot sounds like a Canadian character on South Park would say Scott.
Zeljko Ivanek plays a guy who has a mustache in Argo. If you remember back a few months ago, he also plays a guy with a mustache in Seven Psychopaths. He looks more like a psychopath in this movie than the other.
Christoph Waltz hosted SNL last weekend. During the monologue they pranced out a number of characters meant to make fun of Waltz’s native Austria, one of which was Casual Hitler played by Taran Killam.
Casual Hitler is probably very offensive to a lot of people, but it can’t be more offensive than some of the movies Taran (who is very funny) was in before getting on to SNL, like Big Fat Liar or Epic Movie.
It looks like Bill Murray hasn’t shaved much since the last time we saw him. I think this picture was taken as Bill left a model train convention.
Daryl “Razor” Reaugh, or Daryl “I Lost My Razor” Reaugh as the insufferable Chris Berman might call him, is a retired goalie, and current color commentator for the Dallas Stars, The NHL on Versus and Hockey Night in Canada. I don’t know much about hockey ay, but this guys got a nice duster.
First, I apologize for the title of this post. It’s gross in that rashes are gross and also just a horrible joke. Not even close to funny. So, I’M SORRY.
Next, I am really starting to get excited about seeing Jim Rash as Dean Pelton tonight. He is really funny and makes me feel uncomfortable, which I think is a good thing because I’ve heard a lot of girl say the same thing about me.
Robin Williams heard that I posted Dustin Hoffman’s mustache from Hook last week and promptly grew a mustache of his own. No matter what you think of him, you’d have to admit it’s a nice looking tickler.
I have mixed feelings about Robin Williams. I remember watching one of his stand-up specials in high school and thinking, “Man that’s a lot of water bottles,” before falling asleep.
As an actor, he is all over the place. He obviously great in Mrs. Doubtfire and Jack but then you look at some of the other garbage he was in like Old Dogs and RV and you wonder how much does cocaine actually cost?
I don’t think animals can grow mustaches, but this turkey doesn’t even need to go to Turkey for a transplant when I’ve got photoshop and a little bit too much time on my hands.
Katy Perry helped Ellen Degeneres celebrate her 55th birthday last week by coming on her show dressed as a male game show host. Male Katy hosted a game called “Grab Ellen’s Bust” which sounds inappropriate if you ask me. I wouldn’t know though. I turned off the video 30 seconds in because I was feeling embarrassed for some of the audience members and how excited they were getting.
Jeremiah Birkett appeared as Jean Paul on Seinfeld. Jean Paul was a visiting marathon runner who once slept through his alarm to miss the Olympics. Here’s a clip of some of his scenes. I prefer the ones after George teaches him to swear like a Texan.
