“A sunset? On INSTAGRAM? Why has nobody thought of this idea before?!” And then I was punched in the head.
Mel Brooks tells David Bianculli about turning down the Kennedy Center Honor the first time he was offered it:
I shouldn’t say this … but I’ll say it anyway. I was offered this — the Kennedy Center Honors — maybe a year or two before and I said, ‘Well, I’m going to wait for another president if I’m still alive if you don’t mind.’ I just didn’t feel comfortable when Bush was president to accept the honors. … Had I not gotten 110 awards, you know, I’m an EGOT so I don’t need any more. … The Kennedy Center Honors at the moment, I didn’t need them. … The only award I haven’t received, I think, is Woman of the Year and I don’t know if that’s not in the works just as an honorary Woman of the Year. I may get that too, but I’m not looking for it.
His childhood memories of becoming interested in show business are really vivid and funny. Maybe seven years ago I found myself next to him in a West LA video store. He was a tiny man. And I do believe Mel Brooks’ eyes lit up when he saw that I recognized him. Very fun!
DROP EVERYTHING: there’s a new Anchorman 2 trailer.
OH MY GOD

As I write this, I am very sad. Our president has been overthrown and REPLACED BY THE BENEVOLENT GENERAL KRULL. ALL HAIL KRULL, AND HIS GLORIOUS NEW REGIME.
When the cast deems a sketch too boring, sometimes Paul and Jay overdub it on the commentary track, with fun results. This is the first of them.
