They had a re-run the other Saturday and a girl called Duffy was the musical guest. That was just about the worst fucking thing I've heard in years.

I saw that.. I couldn't believe how bad that was. One of the most annoying voices I've heard in years.

Okay, I listened to a handful of her tunes from YouTube, and I can safely say that her version of "soul" is on a par with Cafe Flesh's version of fun sex.

In other words, it isn't happening.

Duffy's some sort of soul singin' brit with that winehouse variety of voice.



she looks like a really short Bond-girl.





justin timberlake was very funny on SNL, i thought.

What is the point of that sketch? Its not funny. Its not clever. Its stupid and pandering to the lowest common denominator. There were 3 "jokes" in there but none of them were remotely humorous. Shit like that is lowering America's sense of humor.

I think you missed it entirely. It's just a grotesque. Humor for obsessives. Certainly fine if you didn't like it, lots of people don't like that kind of stuff.

Kristen Wiig is a genius.

Explain it to me then.

Here's what I got:

* all these "accidents" and incidents happen. When the retarded girl is caught all she says is "sorry" in a stupid voice. Its the same formula SNL has been using for 10+ years; give a character a stupid voice and silly costume and tell people that that is "funny".

* there's the generic kid who hates his parent(s).

* the kid who obviously can't be causing the malfeasance because of a physical handicap.

This seems to me to be just another attempt by the writers to create a new hit character ala Jorge & Yortek Festrunk, The Coneheads, Wayne and Garth, etc. They come up with idiotic characters, throw them all against wall and hope that something sticks. You can tell when they are trying to do this because the character gets a stupid theme song.

There's nothing to explain.

And SNL, right from the get-go in '75, was about 33% quality/funny and 66% terrible, painfully unfunny shit, and it never changed much or got better or worse or anything. It's still about two whiffs for one decent hit at its best.

Also, the sketch was filler, not an attempt at a solid running character or they would have aired it earlier in the episode. It's probably the case that it was a marginal sketch that did well enough in dress rehearsal to make the cut.

You either like some stuff or you don't. No deconstruction required.

But I want to know what I am missing. I think its utter crap, but Phobia seems to think (at least parts of it) are genius. I honestly want to know what I am missing out on.
