S4TW: Lena Horne, SNL, snowbank cats

February 20, 2015

(Welcome to Something for the Weekend.  What follows is a list of some of our shows, some shows that aren’t our shows, and some links from around the Internet that we think you’ll enjoy.  Give them a listen/glance.  Thank you.)

STAR WARS, EPISODE VII: You Must Remember This focuses on the career of Lena Horne and you should listen to it.  Don’t really know what else to say.  You’ll be glad you did, though.

THE CALIFORNIANS SKETCH WENT ON WAY TOO LONG: Our sports podcast for people who don’t like sports podcasts, Home Dunk, named its MVPs of the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special.

NORRRRRM: Norm MacDonald’s behind-the-scenes tweet storm about the show is a good chaser for those interested in the inner workings of SNL.

CAT ENTERS ROOM: 

THIS PODCAST HAS SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES: Reasonably Sound smartly analyzes the effectiveness of subliminal messages.  It turns out Friends was wrong.

SHERMAN COMES ALIVE: The very first live episode of A Tiny Sense Of Accomplishment is filled with live readings, audience advice, and cab drivers who love the Green Bay Packers.

OBITS: Ta-Nehisi Coates on David Carr, Glen Weldon on Harris Wittels.  As Weldon notes, you should listen to Wittels’ second appearance on Pete Holmes’ You Made It Weird.
