Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

This And That Tuesday - Take Two!

This week started off the month of the dead... It will lead straight into the dead of winter... It is dead boring and dead silent around here... It started off with All-Saints Day but THAT was quickly followed by the Day of the Dead... Hence, it is mortifying around here - for more reasons than one!

That is not to say that I am depressed though - for I am not. Not really anyway... I alternate between "upbeat" and "morose" faster than a pussycat will kill, kill, kill... Russ Meyer's usual gang of misfits would be proud...

This is not to say either that I have any great amount of admiration for Mr. Meyer's body of work - it is an acquired taste, like almost everything is... I may have greater admiration for Seth Meyers' work at this time - he makes great use of tons of contemporary figures, both celebrities and fictitious characters, and blends it all together in those cartoons I have caught on occasion - and that is the funniest stuff since Nickelodeon's "Kablam!" if you ask me...! Suspension of disbelief and assembly required, mind you...

That said though, both Meyerses seem plagued with unwanted names - Russ had his most famous actress bear the unsavoury name of the devil (along with the rather exotic first name "Tura"...) and Seth is... well, Seth! He'd only been worse off if his folks had named him after a more ancient pantheon of fakes' own "god of evil"... But I digress...

This is not to say that I don't think that Seth Meyers' "day job" - on Saturday Night Live, as Tina Fey's replacement - is not well-deserved... Because it is... Who else would have been more well-suited for this? Ana Gasteyer?!? Maya Rudolph?!? Lorne Michaels himself?!? Puh-leeeeeze...

That said, the unique dynamics of having Tina Fey sit side-by-side with Amy Poehler are a thing of the past now... The Weekend Update newsdesk can only hope to recapture some of the old flavor it had way back when Jane Curtin and Bill Murray were there... Lest it is Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd trading barbs... Most likely though, they will settle for similar antics to those of old accomplices such as Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey...? Or not - after all, Meyers and Poehler do play recurring characters known as "the couple that should be divorced" - so, maybe THAT indicates a return of the incisive exchanges Aykroyd and Curtin used to have...!

But that's enough of... "This and that" - for now!
