Anniversary of Chris Farley's death

Today is the 15 year anniversary of Chris Farley's death.  Chris Farley had such a profound effect on my life, and his death was a tragedy.  I'm taking a moment of silence for him, then I'm going to watch the heck out of some old SNL clips.  Please feel free to do the same:

Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer!

The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer came out today, and it does not disappoint.  I tried to include it here, but if it doesn't work it's on youtube: http://youtu.be/XSoIs4wfaeM

People are speculating that the villain is Kahn, but I'm not totally sold yet.  Someone else has suggested that the story will be similar to the pilot from the original series, "Where No Man Has Gone Before."

A steady diet of government cheese

I watch a lot of videos online.  There are videos from friends on facebook, videos from old TV shows, videos people tell me to look up, and countless other sources.  There are so many hilarious videos that I've probably forgotten about that I've decided to start listing them here.  This blog is meant to serve as a comedic trip down memory lane, and hopefully you enjoy these clips as well.

What better way to start than with Chris Farley as Matt Foley, motivational speaker.  He's been drinking coffee in the basement for about the last four hours, so please watch and enjoy:

There was a period of time when I would perform the Matt Foley sketches, adapting them for the circumstances of the performance.  Usually during high school assemblies.  It was a lot of fun, but once Farley died it didn't feel right anymore.  

Rest in peace, Chris Farley and Phil Hartman.
