Happy Monday!

For those of us who want to change in subtle (or drastic) ways this week, just remember that it is possible to complete such a transformation to be cooler and get the girl.

Even without an elixir.

But a little liquid courage helps.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday!

Jimmy’s Daily Planet was partly created for pop culture crossover moments seen in the video below.

We’re not worthy yet we’ll watch it over and over and over again whilst headbanging the entire time…

‘Wayne’s World’–that cult cinematic classic born from an SNL skit–triumphantly made the stage of the Academy Awards last night by way of fate nearly 30 years after the film’s theatrical release to introduce the Freddie Mercury biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ Simply put, Mike Myers (Wayne) and Dana Carvey (Garth) were 7 kinds of awesomeness. Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor giving the SNL sketch masters a standing ovation was particularly cool.

It was a nice schwing from the normal ceremonial procedures of the Oscars.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

P.S. Last night’s Oscars appearance proved the comedic duo clearly still have ‘Wayne’s World’-level chemistry on stage. Is a final chapter of the film series on the way that would make ‘Wayne’s World’ a trilogy? 

Hopefully, Mike Myers and Dana Carvey will cave under pressure to this specific fan demand. 

Giving a Friend a Helping–and Painfully Insightful–Hand

There were five claps in the ‘Friends’ theme song, right?

Anyways, ‘Friends’ ended in 2004 yet its shining pop cultural legacy continues to be as bright as its original run beginning in the nostalgic, distant yesteryear of 1994.

One of those real-life friends is Matt LeBlanc who played the non-real-life “How you doin’?” goofball ladies man Joey Tribbiani. And despite his current CBS sitcom ‘Man with a Plan,’ it’s been a while since he’s returned to his beloved character. He played a hilariously obnoxious version of himself in ‘Episodes’ with ‘Friends’ alums David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik, but that’s not enough.

Maybe it was four claps in “I’ll Be There for You”?

While we will never be treated to a ‘Friends’ reunion–just the harsh reality of a fictional world–we should take a minute to enjoy any brief return visits related to the hit show when they come to us.

Speaking of which, Matt LeBlanc just appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’

Talk about the ultimate friendly slap bet.

Tune into tonight’s ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to see the full interview with Matt LeBlanc at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Merry Christmas!

‘Tis the season to celebrate the birth of Christ.

‘Tis the season to celebrate being with the ones we love.

And ‘Tis the season to watch those classic Christmas movies alongside family.

The following clip from 1990 cinematic magic known as ‘Home Alone’–masterfully created by director Chris Columbus and screenwriter John Hughes–sparked great laughter from kids and adults alike this evening.

That’s what you call a money clip.

Yup…still got it.

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!
