There was nowhere near as much discussion of the blue oyster cult sketch than there should have been. Once again I was left wanting more cowbell. Someone who was in it, i forget who, said that the turning point was Will Ferrell changing to a smaller shirt. so true. that gut gyrating around makes me laugh till I tear up every time.
Oh yeah and that "the drug years" documentary on VH1 ruled. We sat transfixed staring at all the awesome footage of 60s and 70s stoners, bales of uh, herbal supplements coming off planes, etc. not to mention the lengthy rundown of how High Times (the publication) came to be.
Damn I missed that SNL thing. 90s SNL was my favorite. I hate it now.
I've seen those Drug Years shows like 3 or 4 times now, they never get old.
Watching the early to mid 90s SNL episodes always brings me back to when I was a kid. I used to watch it every day during the summer. They would have it on comedy central everyday for like 3 hours I would never miss a show.
