Yeah, Rainn Wilson is generally kind of creepy, but there were definitely a few good parts. I recommend the New Age band rehearsal sketch (with Maya Rudolph playing the pan flute), but I can't find the video of it anywhere. But on this link you can check out the SNL digital short, which is actually really funny, and includes the Arcade Fire's line "Cut Human Resources?" Check it out at: http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/02/25/saturday-night-live-rainn-wilson- arcade-fire-videos/

So, I watched SNL last night. A few sketches were actually sort of funny! And our friends the Arcade Fire were good, although why does Win Butler look so angry all the time? I thought he was going to eat someone.

Ana

sooo jealous... couldn't make it to a show but i just finished listening to a recording from saturday night on npr and it was awesome (even though it made me want to be there live that much more). thanks for the heads up about the 24th - i'll be sure to check it out!

Rachel

Oh man! Thanks for telling me, I've got to watch that. Hopefully there'll be at least one good skit this time, too.

Meatbreak

Though having said that - I figured Saturday Night Live as soon as I pressed 'Add comment'.

Meatbreak

What's SNL? I 'aint no 'Merkin.

Ana

nope, not yet... still a little bitter that all the upcoming shows got sold out so quickly but bursting for the march release! glad to hear that it will be well worth the wait.

Meatbreak

I see you mentioned Neon Bible. Windowsill, No Cars Go and My Body is A Cage is right up there with the best song triplets. Ever. Just wait til March 5th.

Ana

hey ken, thanks for the awesome dec. mix!

Cornelius

Maaaaan I called him out and sh*t! I was all like: "A battle of superpowers will now ensue bee-otch! There can be only one Dark Lord and sh*t." I'm still waitin'. Bring it, I say!

Rachel

I haven't heard the Whitfield/Russell version, but now I'll certainly check it out! Also, I've just been listening to "Neon Bible" recently, it's really awesome. My favorite tracks so far are "The Well and the Lighthouse" and "Ocean of Noise."

Cornelius

Dr. Teeth is one of my favorite band leaders of all time!
