Before the Ninja Juicer, there was Rovco’s Super Bass-o-matic ‘76™. In the classic SNL sketch, pitchman Dan Aykroyd did his best Pompeil to convince fish-eaters, that the days of troublesome scaling, cutting and gutting were, in fact, over.
On October 27th, the second season of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Stranger Things begins. It will be interesting to see how the psychokentic heroine Eleven returns after her dramatic exit in season one.
I’ll never forget the first time I saw the comical heavyweight, Chris Farley. It was in the now classic SNL sketch where he plays ‘Barney’, a hopeful Chippendale auditioning in a dance-off against ‘Adrian’ (Patrick Swayze).
