Tim and I discuss music and stuff: SNL Edition

Over the past week, tim AKA Alaska and I got in a heated discussion about SNL cast members. We’re both long time fans of the show and mostly agreed with each other. That was until it was bought to my attention that Alaska thought Kristen Wiig and Fred Armison were terrible. Now, this cause a back and forth on twitter between us that can only be described as “twitter like”.
So, this week, we did a special edition of our weekly column and focused on out favorite and most slept on SNL Characters. It’s all rosey and sweet until we reach the part where I post vids of Wiig and Armison and we each make a case for why or why not we think these two performers are awesome/terrible.
Honestly, Tim could have bought science and math into it and I still could not disagree more with pretty much every point he makes but, hey, to each his own. But, seriously, he’s completely insane and categorically incorrect. How do I know this? He didn’t think Jimmy Fallon sucked. CASE CLOSED, BRAH.

  1. Not for nothing but Alaska has had shitty taste for a while now. I’ve been reading you guys since the Trending Topics. Funny guy but he’s got old man taste. I lol’d at all those clips of Wiig and Armisen.

      • granted I am totally not down with old dad rock like stevie wonder and shit, but I make up for that by liking new dad rock like Wilco.

      • alasks’s taste in shitty alternative rock really sux…but he’s right about armison and wiig.
        fallon was terrible on snl, even though i love him now (thanks Roots!)

    • I put her (wiig) in the same level as rudolph, shannon, poehler and even good old jan hooks and nora dunn. Imo, those are the best women ever of SNL. Oteri is a hair below them but still awesome.

  2. But who’s the all-time wackest? My vote goes to Victoria Jackson, not only was she terrible on SNL, but when Obama beat Romney’s ass she tweeted “I’m crying.” You know, as in “…for America.”

  3. Oteri and Shannon are more a nostalgia trip but Rudolph is top 20 cast member all time. Wiig is not. Wiig is hilarious. Just not on snl. Both her and armison are getting points for their work outside of snl. People are clouding the two. Here is the digference between wiig and the likes of pohler fey and Rudolph. You don’t need to add the term female to the sentence when discussing their place in the pantheon. You do with wiig.

    As for the worst all time. I’m going with jackson

    • Your whole “wiig only gets props cause of bridesmaids point is lost on me I’ve been down with wiig since her first season. She was consistently awesome throughout her entire time on the show.
      Also, I’d put wiig in the discussion with rudolph and pohler. easily. Whether it’s best cast member ever or best female. They’re around the same place to me. I think this comes down to you simply not being a fan of wiigs style of humor and me thinking it’s awesome. But hey, like i said, to each his own.
      also, shannon was pretty great. Not always but when she nailed it, she really nailed it and did something very original.
