the Gaslight Anthem-“Once Upon a Time”*
*this is a cover of Robert Bradley Blackwater’s Surprise
Feels fitting for MLK Day and a day of remembrance. And being nostalgic maybe. I love the references in this song. Every lyric for their first 2 albums (and EP) are so reference-heavy in each and every song.

Ricky Gervais turns the Golden Globes into a Roast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvHXzP2SpLA
^Gervais is NEVER going to host ever again and I suspect he knew that he wasn’t and didn’t care. This clip doesn’t show him making fun of Bruce Willis (introducing him as “Ashton Kutcher’s dad”), Tim Allen, and Robert Downey JR.
Natalie Portman’s eerie laugh after telling a joke
twitter.com/rileybreck: “Natalie Portman just crushed a decade’s worth of geek boners with that acceptance speech laugh. #douchechills”
SNL Digital Short: Andy Samberg and Pee Wee Herman
^I watch EVERY SNL episode and usually hate myself for it. I am not kidding, I sometimes have gone two weeks without laughing. Even some of their best and most inspired hosts (Justin Timberlake, Jon Hamm) they sometimes miss on when they return. But this, Gwyneth Paltrow with musical guest Cee-Lo, was the best episode of SNL, from front-to-back, that I have seen in years from SNL. Even my brother and roommate were laughing their asses off. They just nailed it.
I’ve been saying this for awhile, but Jay Pharaoh is not used much (maybe one sketch a week, but everybody’s eyes perks up when he’s on stage. He was on a lot here and got to dead-on impressions of Will Smith and Jay-Z that just makes everybody laugh & look at each other in a ‘did you just see that?’
The Jewish Bar Mitzvah with music stars (Jay-Z; Taylor Swift; Katy Perry; Cee-Lo) and the parody of Shakespeare’s theatre if it were like the movies today were the 2 best sketches. We kept on rewinding it.
But yeah, when a drunk Anderson Cooper tries to sit on a drunk Chairy only to be cursed out just kills me. .gifs have already been made. I went through the roof.
