So the Writers Guild of America walked off the job for the first time in nearly two decades, leaving a gaping hole in this nation’s nightly programming. Gone for now are The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and the other late-night romps, leaving a gaping hole in HT’s Televised Tune department as well. Fuckers.
The ‘just desserts’ from this strike come courtesy of Saturday Night Live, which will head into reruns immediately. And which disgusting mess of a seductress was to make her SNL debut this weekend? Amy Winehouse! That’s right, someone else canceled on her. I guess the foot’s on the other hand now, isn’t it Kramer?
Switching gears here as seamlessly as possible without an obvious segue, we could use some quality writers around here right now. Because I’ve got nothing — absolutely nothing — that expresses what I have cookin’ inside after watching the new video for Lou Reed and The Killers’ song, Tranquilize. Take a look:
Seriously, whatcha got? Best I can do right now is: “What’s the deal with Tranquilize? I mean can anyone possibly drink this much Mountain Dew?” Nah.
*Bonus hetty points for the person what knows what I’m paraphrasing here
