Earlier tonight, I watched NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams – only Brian decided to disguise himself as this awkward Black dude named Lester Holt. If Brian was trying to be cool, it didn’t really work for him. Maybe tomorrow night he should try being Denzel Washington, cause Denzel’s always cool! But I’m not sure if Brian W. could pull off Denzel Washington Cool, even if the make up job was Oscar Award worthy, like Meryl Streep impersonating Margaret Thatcher… who was really a guy according to Rupert Murdock and “News Of The World” after they hacked into her/his cell phone.
Can’t wait for the other shoe to drop on that one! Can Murdock keep the Fox Network in business from a prison cell? Stay tuned kids, for the next action packed and adventurous episode of mass illegal hacking of cell phones, intimidation of Parliament for political favors and repeated bribery of Scotland Yard! Now that’s what I call some really gripping Reality TV!
Anyway, right after I watched Brian Williams trying to do the news as a nerdy Black guy and failing, we watched “30 Rock”. I’ve always liked this combination, because NBC Nightly News makes the world and our society seem nonsensical and deranged. 30 Rock also makes the world and our society seem nonsensical and deranged, except that you can laugh a lot and enjoy watching it – instead of feeling like your life is in imminent danger as you witness the last days of Human Civilization spiraling down into collective madness and ultimate extinction.
Yeah, I like 30 Rock’s version of nonsensical and deranged much better than the way they do it on the news… Just a much more relaxing and light hearted approach all around for our evening TV entertainment.
And the other really cool thing about 30 Rock; especially this season – is that apparently you can make a hit TV comedy without making much sense at all, and even lapse into total incoherence while making lots of jokes that no one really understands. But the jokes are still funny cause most of the viewers are still laughing! Even when they don’t know what the hell they are laughing at. Now that’s some really high standard comedy! Or at least the writers have been getting high a lot lately, and much more often than they did last season.
But it’s still all good with 30 Rock… cause after watching the news, you might really need to watch something that makes you feel happily stoned in a vicarious way, and without that chronic short term memory loss too!
And the other cool thing about 30 Rock, is that if they can be nonsensical to the point of being inscrutable, and still be lots of fun anyway, well then so can I! :-)
Which is why I wrote this post tonight, in the way in which I have laid it all out here… Cuz I can be 30 Rock Nonsensi-cool too!
And Tina Fey, no matter what I’m saying here tonight honey, I still burn for you hotter than the white hot heat of an incendiary torch! And you know it babe!!!
Note: For those of you who didn’t care for tonight’s post, I’ll be more than happy to give you every single penny of your money back, and I promise to never do it again.
Tomorrow night’s post will be written by Brian Williams trying to impersonate Oprah Winfrey, who is really Eddie Murphy in drag! And I am NOT responsible for how that shit goes down…
