SNL Arsenal.

I’m a devotee of the first 5 seasons of Saturday Night Live–the golden age, as I think of it–and have acquired the first 3 seasons on DVD. (Of course, I haven’t actually watched any of the DVDs yet. At the rate I’m going, I figure I’ll watch all the DVDs I own and haven’t watched yet, and listen to all the CDs I own and haven’t listened to yet, by the year 2016. Sadly, the literal truth is that I’ll probably die with some of them still in shrink wrap.)

This morning I came across a fun web page by Kara Kovalchik that lists, and describes, “5 Awful Saturday Night Live Hosts” from these first 5 seasons. (If you’re curious, they’re Milton Berle, Louise Lasser, Frank Zappa, Jodie Foster, and Chevy Chase–but I recommend going to the page and reading it to find out just why.)

    Ted, how understanding is your wife of all these unwatched and unlistened too discs? I’m in a similar situation. I listen to new acquisitions quickly, but will probably die before I ever get to listen to them again. Yet, it’s important that I have them to hand should I feel like listening to them. It’s a library kind of thing. I feel better for having them. But my wife (who has the sensible, financial brain of the family) doesn’t get it. I have several friends in the same situation. I’m convinced it’s a male/female thing.

    Not all that understanding!

    But feel free to show your wife my blog so at least she’ll know you’re not the only one.
