10:17 am: ashlee simpson
I just watched SNL last night on my Tivo, oblivious to the Ashlee Simpson debacle. Did anyone else see this? I am not a cruel person by nature, so I feel sorry for her, but do you really think you should recieve millions of dollars and fame for being a singer when you can't sing? When we watched last week's show, I had commented with disgust that SNL used to choose interesting and talented musical acts after they announced Ashlee as next week's guest. Christian said they had sold out long ago. How ironic that this would be her undoing...

HOLY CRAP. That's what Andy Kaufman was heralding with his "Mighty Mouse" act, wasn't he??

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE save that for me. I've been hearing about it all week.

You receive millions of dollars if you can cause billions of dollars of goods to be sold. Like being a celebrity spokesperson who is famous for being a celebrity spokesperson.

Yeah - SNL is a money-making operation for its network, so they are forced to feature acts who will draw in viewers to see commercials. And since the advent of cable (and good cable shows), they have to try harder to pull them in.

Dude, I wish I'd gotten this hat (see above). :)

Of course I am saving it for you but we were gipped with the west coast version where they edited out the voice track. It's still delicious, though.
