The Thatcher/Ian Rubbish digital short was awesome for all the period details ... but the "Cadena Norton Wedding" was even cooler ...
... because it was one of those genius sketches that could only get onto SNL after 12:45 ... because it was so specific to the DC hardcore thing, with a little bit of Suicidal Tendencies added to it ... because it was aired live, which made the chaos of it all the more special ... because it had Dave Grohl, who was part of that DC scene before he got all famous ... and because Sudekis's "enthused dork" response is a perfect grace note to the whole thing. And JUST BECAUSE.

Yeah, it's amazing how you'd watch that sketch and think "Holy crap, Fred Armisen is AMAZING in this!" and that (knowing his reference points) he has to be the driving force behind it, and then you hear him talk about it and he's basically giving all the credit to everyone else. Such a sweet guy.

Holy shit, forgot about "Next." It's totally online:
Whoa - "Eee-it's Been" awhile since I saw that... Bob Odenkirk, Fred Armisen, Jerry Minor, Jay Johnston, Zach G, I think I saw Jill Talley in there, and probably forgot a bunch, too. Not a bad lineup.
