Sunday Round-Up: Jay-Z, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, and Skateboard P

Jay's latest impromptu musical release took a shot at his critics and in particular two Florida representatives with apparently nothing better to do like, I dunno, stop people from gettin swallowed up by the earth, but different strokes for different folks.  Anyway, Jay effortlessly bashed his critics, ruined the day of every still Obama butt hurt republican, and after all that, went home to have sex with Beyoncé.  Touché Mr. Carter.


Kate McKinnon continues to destroy everything she does on SNL.  I only skimmed last night's episode because while I think Vince Vaughn is funny, I don't need more Vince Vaughn in my life.  Fortunately, during weekend update Kate got a chance to shine playing an eccentric woman that was raised by monkeys.  She is brilliant.  Do yourself a favor and watch.


Equally Brilliant is my hero Richard "I'm Better at Life than You" Sherman.  Anybody who knows me knows that I'm a sucker for novelty T's so this is a must have for me.  In case you're unfamiliar with the quote, watch the first 75 seconds of him giving skip bayless a verbal pie to the face his interview on first take.  It's all great, but if you're in a rush, the first 1:15 ought to do it.

"Into The Crevasse" - Decided to randomly go back and watch Season 4 episodes of 30 Rock. I watched this one because I like saying "Go into the crevasse" as if it's a real thing, and then getting blank stares from co-workers.  Well I forgot what a wonderful episode it is.  The concept of Liz and Tracy as roommates had a lot of comedic mileage and I would watch that spinoff all day.  Here's 16 seconds for you.

Not sure if you caught this, but last summer Breaking Bad had a cooking montage set to "Crystal Blue Persuasion" and that montage was parodied by The Simpsons earlier tonight.  You should probably go and catch up on the first 8 episodes of season 5 so you remember exactly where you were because there's no doubt these last 8 that begin on July 14th will re-contextualize a lot of what we saw in the first half of season 5.

Daft Punk and Pharrell have apparently been working together and I am 100% on board.  I knew I had to check it out when I saw that my twitter feed exploded with comments about the commercial that aired during SNL.  An explosion which begs the question...who watches Saturday Night Live, live?

"Gibberish Rap"  I went to see comedian Hannibal Burress last night at the Firebird and he crushed it.  He brought down the house with a pretty hype version of his hit single, "Gibberish Rap."  Is he one of the hottest MC's in the game? You decide...
