“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.” – Pablo Neruda
Admittedly, I haven’t watched any of the newer SNL skits in quite some time. The few clips I have briefly caught, I wasn’t overly impressed with and that’s because I grew up in the ’80s and ’90s when SNL was at its pinnacle.
Am I an SNL snob? Maybe, probably, undoubtedly yes. It’s hard to beat perfection and old SNL embodies perfection. As a child, I would get so excited on Saturday’s cuz that meant eating popcorn, laughing my ass off, and my parents letting me stay up later than usual.
As an ode to old school SNL(and simpler times), watch this hilarious clip with Dean Martin.
I remember my first car. It was a Honda Accord wrapped in a big bow (I got in for Christmas), equipped with a bike rack and one of those old car phones. In my mind, I was a fucking baller with that car and took it wherever I could to impress people (they weren’t) and to make my friends jealous (they weren’t). But still, in my teenage delusional mindset, I was “the s**t.”
Within a year, I had gotten into two accidents, my window broke so I have to use a trash bag to cover it up from cold air and rain, and the exhaust pipe was taped to the underbelly of my car after falling out on the highest. This REALLY didn’t impress my friends.
What MIGHT have actually gotten me the attention and cool card I so desperately wanted is if I had shown up to school or prom in any of these outlandish vehicles from India.
