Christopher Walken

I started watching Saturday Night Live when I was about 6 years old. I still remember watching all the old greats doing their thing. I remember watching the Cowbell sketch the very first time it aired. I remember watching Chris Farley dance at Chippendales with Patrick Swayze. And I remember being blown away by the hilarity of the sketches whenever Christopher Walken hosted.

For those of you who don't know. Christopher Walken is awesome.

Here's my favorite.

Who ever knew creepy could be hilarious. He redefines the word. That, to me, is great comedy.

DUDE you know what i was talking about to my friend the other day??? how when we were little, omma and appa would go to weds. night bible study/gooyokyehbeh and we'd jut watch TV (aka SNL/90210/MadTV...) when we were supposed to be sleeping; then when we heard them come home we'd turn it off and crawl back into bed. GUUUUT times

shut up. you know you've got SOME chops, mr. english at berkeley. your writing's got panache; verve; know, STYLE!

i LIKE that it's never dumbed down, but it's also never uptight-shakespearean-prudery or cotton-mather-sermon style, either. it's hard to be eloquent and funny while still keeping it real (ie. non-elitist-- yeah, you know that elitist chortle). keep it that way. :)

AND...2 WEEKS!!!! :) :) :)
