Emma Stone in “I Broke My Arm” Is My New Digital Short Hotness
October 27, 2010

“Natalie Raps” is the SNL Digital Short where Natalie Portman plays a hardcore bitch version of herself who spits rhymes like “I bust in dudes’ mouths like Gushers, motherf****r” while sporting a fetching and slightly lesbionic ‘do.  This just so happens to be a winning recipe for Digital Short love when you–like me–frequently suffer from debilitating levels of homosexuality; or, as they call it in the medical community, Too Gay to Function Syndrome (TGTFS).  Whatever, I digress.  My point is “Natalie Raps” used to be my favorite Digital Short, but that was before Emma Stone was on this past week’s Saturday Night Live, and did you hear the news?  She broke her arm when she slipped and fell on some sticky grape jelly:

Ew.

Seriously, maybe it’s just me and my love of the bizarre and the batshit insane,  but I think “I Broke My Arm” is so great that you should watch it right now if you haven’t already, and if you’ve already watched it, THEN LET’S GO WATCH IT AGAIN:

It’s such a shame my parents won’t be coming up here this summer.  After all, nothing says “Thanks for visiting, Mom and Dad!” quite like partying with a bunch of shims and a cat from a bodega, but I digress.

Now here’s Miley Cyrus, who’s once again making a bid for pop star legitimacy by stomping around the stage like she’s the X-Man Angel’s kid sister, you know, the one a fondness for pompadours and dressing up like an extra in a community theater production of The Rocky Horror Show:

Much Like My Beloved Eno Sounds, MGMT’s SNL Performance of “Brian Eno” Is Delicious
April 26, 2010

Before I watched it Sunday morning (because grandmas and gay men who act like grandmas are both physically incapable of staying up past 9:30 on a Saturday night), I wasn’t sure what to expect from this:

This is mostly because I’ve learned my MGMT lesson since that one time I didn’t know what to expect from the “Flash Delirium” video, and I’m not one to make the same nightmare mistakes twice in my lifetime, or at least until an ample amount of time has passed for me for me to decide I want another ride on the Bad Idea Express.  It’s also worth noting, though, that I didn’t expect them to play their love letter to Brian Eno (and my personal favorite track off Congratulations because it’s awesome and because le duh) as their second number, so that in itself was something pretty awesome surprise:

But let’s be clear on one thing, while my love for “Brian Eno” may never quite reach my love for Brian Eno, even more surprising to me was how much this guy sure brings it awfully close:
