Celebrating SNL 's 40th anniversary, live from your coffee table

If you’ve ever so much as turned on a television (even a an old-fashioned boob tube, with dials on it and rabbit ears), you remember Saturday Night Live, the homestead of so many of the greats of contemporary comedy—the iconic sketch show born back in 1975 that has been alive longer than most of the comedic actors […]

Best comedians on Earth this Saturday on the Santa Monica Pier

Music festivals are a dime a dozen nowadays, with nearly every podunk berg and deep niche music blog trying to attract aficionados to their questionable line-ups. And although comedy has played a small roll in some of these festivals — such as Bonnaroo, for instance — how come no one has organized a comedy-based festival? […]

Fred Armisen as the frontman of the only pro-Thatcher punk band

In one of the funnier Saturday Night Live skits of late, longtime SNL staple Fred Armisen plays Ian Rubbish — fictional frontman of the punk band Ian Rubbish & the Bizzarros. It’s pretty clear from the History Of Punk skit that Armisen is a huge fan of the music, as his portrayal of a late […]

Soup Cans Exhibition opens July 9 at MOCA

In 2011 it’s easy to dismiss Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans as been-there-done-that monotony. Who wants to stare at a painting of an object you can buy for less than a dollar at Ralphs or the 99 Cent Store? I do, and we all should. Warhol’s iconic painting is actually thirty-two paintings side by side, […]

Start your Saturday night right with some deranged sculptures

So there’s this “art” event called GLOW happening on the beach in Santa Monica this Saturday, but I went to GLOW two years ago when it started and the art all looked pretty damn corporate to me. So corporate that we ended up on the SM Pier drinking tequila gimlets on the rickety roller coaster (that combo […]
