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.

Dana Carvey Makes a Small Impression These Days

Today is a perfect day to laugh.

Dana Carvey, an SNL and impressions icon, performs new comedy in an old way. What do I mean? Some of the best SNL sketches are when well-known figures are made fun of with great insight and precision. But there’s a catch:

The jokes are not activist-driven.

The video above showcases an increasingly rare comedic gift. We have to be able to joke around with and about each other without getting heated about every single little detail. Sometimes we just need to laugh. Mr. Carvey’s sense of humor is laser-focused on the punchline instead of the punch. Jerry Seinfeld is the same way. And Mr. Seinfeld has said that he will care about you if you’re funny. Otherwise, he’s not interested.

A sage perspective, actually.

So, this is Nicolas Cage trying to order a medium Tall at Starbucks…

The Bohemian Soundtrack

Today is Wednesday, which starts with a “w.” Therefore, it’s only natural to feature a funny video clip from the ’90s cult classic Wayne’s World.

Queen sounds good any day of the week:

Party on Everybody!
