March 22, 2017-March 23, 2017 – I was at a vacation beach house. Upstairs, some guy was going on about how 30 Rock was no good anymore in Season 3. I passionately responded that it was excellent through the first 3 seasons, still very good in Season 4, and remained always more good than bad in Seasons 5 and 6. I went upstairs to set the record straight. The hater took off. There were about five meatheads staying in the upstairs rooms. There was a pile of papers with 30 Rock photos in a file folder that I flipped through. There were about five bedrooms upstairs. I walked through all of them. 30 Rock was on the TV in all of them. Then a basketball game from last year’s Olympics started playing. I heard from the announcers that a fight was breaking out. It cut to the scrum, which was in the middle of the court. Coach Krzyzewski was punching at the air. Someone said he was going to get thrown out for that. Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki were the two main ones going at it. A replay showed what led to this. Kobe scored on a layup, and then Dirk (with Kobe right behind him) dunked on a fast break, completely breaking the backboard. The refs should have stopped the game right then. This made me think of Dirk shooting a BB gun in that SNL sketch making fun of Juggalos.  I wanted to mention that to my friend, but I couldn’t remember what it was called the first time they did that sketch. I remembered “Columbus Day Assblast,” though. Then there was another Juggalo parody video playing. It was just some kid on a basketball court rapping at the camera, with occasional white text appearing onscreen.

March 31, 2016-April 1, 2016 – I was walking through a store (that kind of felt like a museum) with my aunt, sister, and Dad. Our attention was caught by a TV playing Radiohead’s SNL performance of “National Anthem.” I leaned over to my aunt and told her that this was my second or third favorite SNL musical performance of all time. We got a female employee to rewind the clip back to the beginning. (We didn’t get to see the introduction.) It started with Keith Urban singing on stage, while Radiohead waited their turn (a few of the Radiohead members helped him with the music). I had forgotten (or never really known) that he also did the music on this episode. We still weren’t getting to Radiohead’s performance, and I was wondering if we were ever going to. My family had left by this point. I sat on a bench with Kanye West in the mall hallway outside the store. A woman came out and updated Kanye on what was going on. He was upset that we still weren’t able to see his performance (because it was somehow his performance, or he was Radiohead, or something like that).

December 25, 2015-December 26, 2015 – I realized that I hadn’t written a review of the SNL episode hosted by Adam McKay, and it was already Monday. I was going to get up and submit it quickly. I hadn’t watched the promo spots, so I was thinking I should watch them to help me with my review. I was wondering if this episode had actually aired, seeing as the Tina and Amy episode was supposed to be the last of the year. But it definitely felt like it had aired, though.

December 19, 2015-December 20, 2015 – I was watching the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler episode of SNL. There were only a couple minutes before 1:00 AM, but another new sketch started playing. It was a Good Neighbor short. It was a commercial for a product called “Villain Rinse.” It featured Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson as two users and spokesmen.

October 20, 2013-October 21, 2013 – I was watching the next new episode of SNL. Stephen Colbert was hosting. The opening sketch was a press conference about Malala Yousafzai and her return to Pakistan or her return to school or something like that. During the monologue, Stephen was calling out several women whose names had been bandied about as possible hosts for this episode and who were also in the audience. They shouted out in response. At the end of the monologue, they had joined him on stage. They included Amy Poehler (whose cleavage looked bigger than usual) and a famous Asian politician who I think had helped out Malala (possibly Aung San Suu Kyi). I was eating a cheesesteak and fries at my desk in my bedroom. My mom got home. My brother and sister were downstairs. I wondered if I should go down and eat dinner with them instead of eating up here.
