Saturday Night Live continues the trend of being a weekly roller coaster ride. It either shines with illustrious humor, or painfully humiliates the iconic, NBC timeslot. This past weekend's episode was one of the more memorable productions of the 36th season. Hosted by Hollywood's most striking geriatric, Helen Mirren, the sketches maintained a heightened level of comic satisfaction. Modern rock's most iconic group, Foo Fighters, blessed the SNL stage with performances of their seventh forthcoming Wasting Light. Frontman and fellow humorist, Dave Grohl, made a fair share of appearances in the evening's sketches.
This week's addition to the Digital Shorts catalog, "Helen Mirren"s Magical Bosom", took us to a supernatural realm that rivals Oz (not the scary prison). A quick grasp of her ageless twosome provides a psychedelic journey into a paradise like no other. Rather than Saint Peter, Dave Grohl welcomes those lucky enough to catch a fondle.
What's more ridiculous than a giant rabbit laying chocolate eggs? Rather than celebrating the upcoming holiday at brunch, Under-Underground Records are commemorating with the Crunk-Ass Easter music festival. (Sneaky Priest and Buttwad on one stage?!)
Club-hoppers who recently flocked to Miami to catch their favorite DJ's had no idea that the finest MC's dwell in the darker side of town. In addition to delectable lunch buffets, strip clubs are the home of sleazy wordsmiths who summon g-stringed divas with the latest Hinder singles (we wouldn't know, we've never been). And Dave Grohl's there, too.
Following their first performance of the entire album at LA's Roxy, the Foo's performed two tracks of Wasting Light on Saturday evening. Similar to the show's hostess, these guys seem to have discovered the fountain of youth. It's been 16 years since their first product, and the group continues to provide outstanding, rock tunes.
