If you don’t already know.. I’m writing and recording a song for every day of 2013 and posting them here. This is the 203rd song so far.
It’s about the cast of Saturday Night Live losing at least 2 of its strongest members. I think Jason Sudekis is leaving too. And I read somewhere that Weekend Update host Seth Meyers is leaving mid-season next. They lost Kristen Wiig last season and she was the funniest member in many years.
They do have some really good new members, particularly Kate McKinnet and Cecily Strong, who I think have been turning in great work early on in their careers at SNL. I’d like to see more of Nasim Pedrad, who I think is excellent but hasn’t been allowed to really shine yet. Terran Killam is brilliant, I think, and when he learns how to reign it in when needed, he’s going to be one of the historical greats of SNL.
Well, this has turned into a very bloggy thing today. Quite uncharacteristic.
Maybe it’s because the song itself is the shortest one so far. 14 seconds.
I hope Bill Hader and Fred Armisen
left SNL of their own volition
otherwise, the producers may require
