Happy Monday!

Mondays can feel the same. But that’s more so the nature of having to kick-off the workweek, I suppose. And that’s why we look for things that will make Monday a little different.

On some occasions, it can be beneficial to listen to that voice in our head…even if it’s someone else’s voice.

If you can pull off that good of a Christopher Walken impression, you’re the king of some jungle.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

Anybody Else Hear a Cowbell? It’s Coming From That Hot Tub. Hey, Someone Brought BBQ Ribs & Budweiser!

Will Ferrell is returning to 30 Rock (the building, not the show) to host this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live with musical guest Chris Stapleton. And this blog post will ask just one question:

What’s your favorite Will Ferrell sketch?

Okay, that’s an unfair question.

The correct answer is Will Ferrell on SNL What is Will Ferrell on SNL.

These ARE the Voices You’re Looking For

We all hear voices from time to time (so I’m told…). However, there’s a real talent for impersonating voices. Enter Last Jedi actor and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill in a recent sit-down interview with famed movie critic Peter Travers.

For the record, the merchandise from Star WarsJurassic Park and countless movies and television shows are what enabled escapism normally confined to a movie theater and family TV rooms (pre-YouTube and Internet) to reach new levels of imaginative curiosity. It’s an impactful part of being a kid, going to the movies and dreaming big. So, Sir Alec Guinness, wise Obi-Wan Kenobi, you were gravely mistaken.

If only Mr. Guinness (bet that got him a few free beers over the years) could have heard the voices of millions of kids seeing his films and playing with a myriad of merchandise, all while beginning a lifetime passion for some of the most treasured films in cinematic history.

Obi-Lost that Debate Kenobi more like it, hmmm (just one of those voices…).

The Power of (Impossible) Positivity

It’s time to turn on the “weekend swagger.”

Do people still say the word “swagger” out loud?

The short answer is no. The longer answer features many sources for this term’s cultural collapse, most recently damaged by a middle-aged father in Los Angeles who has the promotional ego of Mt. Everest and the ROI of, well, his mediocre NBA son Lonzo Ball. It would be too easy (and obnoxious) to listen to the nonsensical, yet very real rants of patriarch LaVar Ball. Instead, watching the hilarious character actor Kenan Thompson of SNL do an impression of the aforementioned father is the perfect comedic escape.

If the Ball family has taught us anything, it’s best to check ourselves before we shoplift in China wreck ourselves.
