Report: Tony Sparano won’t be Raiders interim coach


Give it to Al Saunders. After all he’s done in this league, he deserves it. I haven’t seen enough out of Greg Olson to warrant giving it to him. But if not them, then who?

Maybe they should hire Cartoons Plural from the Key and Peele East/West game.

Put a grocer’s bag in another fellow’s automobile. His friends will think he calls upon the grocer himself, like a dim-witted errand boy!

I played a lot of weasels, a lot of cowards; sweating cowards was my thing. I used to play like hippies and, like, counterculture guys, and [John] Belushi kind of took that over, so I moved into the coward role. … The other thing I would always play was the character called “specs” or “the professor.” I’d play the brainy guy, which I ended up doing, of course, in Ghostbusters.

So here’s my newest D&D character idea: A bard who specializes in the horn. I’ll have a playlist on my iPhone queued up full of horn solos. Whenever my character uses Bardic Inspiration or casts a spell, I’ll play one of the songs.

Licensed to Ill changed everything. In those days, this was really before samples clearances. Nobody even knew how to do that stuff. During the making of Licensed to Ill, the sampler got developed. In the earlier songs for the album, there was no sampler, and everything where it seems like a sample is either DJ’ed in with records, or a tape loop around the studio, which was kind of cumbersome and complicated. Sampling didn’t really exist yet. So the idea that you could clear a sample, or a sample was something you could use on a record, that all came later. So they’re very renegade records

This whole bit is made all the funnier by knowing that all of the guards were just random extras who weren’t told what was going to happen only that they weren’t allowed laugh at any cost as they wouldn’t be payed if they did.
