SNL: A Sketch Too Far

I was left with a strange feeling yesterday after watching the replay of last weekend’s Saturday Night Live. Part of it was from the fact that Chris Pine had to sing almost every time we saw him in the episode, which was weird.

Make Your Black Friday Matter

The day after Thanksgiving has been traditionally known as Black Friday for decades, gaining popular usage to describe the first day of the holiday shopping season in the early 1980s.
