Happy Spring Friday, everyone! Hope you enjoy this week’s FF selections!
1). Some Good Ol’ 90’s Rap. For those of you who grew up in the 90’s, you can’t help but feel a sense of joy and nostalgia when hearing the words: “90s” and “rap” put together in a sentence. To add some even more euphoria, what if I also threw in the term: “Space Jam”?! For those of you who had the soundtrack, which is in the top 3 movie soundtracks of all time along with The Matrix and Ocean’s 11, here’s the music video to track 5, the Monstars rap (also the first song I memorized and am still able to sing word-for-word to this day). This is brought you by Sonza, which is by far, my favorite music app on my phone (yes, even more than Pandora, Spotify, Rdio, TuneIn or Beats). Check it out:
2). The Best Moments with Fred Armisen on Late Night. I’m usually not able to stay away late enough to catch Seth Meyer’s late night show, which is unfortunate because I love that Fred Armisen is his band leader. Fortunately, IFC compiled the top 5 moments of Fred’s and hilarity ensues. Enjoy all five here: http://www.ifc.com/shows/portlandia/blog/2014/03/5-fred-armisen-late-night-with-seth-meyers and I’ll also include my favorite below (just wait for the slogan…):
3). The Making of Frozen Intro Video. Being the father of a girl, it’s no surprise that we made a trip last week to purchase the DVD of Frozen, a movie whose soundtrack I have 99% memorized. One of the best parts of the DVD is the musical intro to the making of elements. I’m sure they’ll be a better quality video released soon, but for now, here’s what I found:
And now, two interesting things about SNL:
4). 10 Famous People Who Rejected SNL. Some of these really surprised me that they rejected an offer from Saturday Night Live (#2/#8), and some of these really surprised me that they were even offered (#4/#6)!
5). 32 Famous People Rejected by SNL. I’m so offended that #1 and #2 were rejected, but I suppose since they became huge comedy stars, I can get over it.
