Stefon makes his triumphant return to ‘Saturday Night Live’—and of course, he breaks

By Martha Tesema


There’s nothing more beautiful to re-watch on a Sunday morning than a Saturday Night Live skit with the actors breaking character.

Bill Hader returned to the show this weekend to host, and with him he brought the infamous and beloved Stefon, who joined Colin Jost and Michael Che’s Weekend Update to give viewers some St. Patrick’s Day tips.

As per usual, Stefon dishes on New York’s hottest clubs that have everything. These days, it’s a CVS that turned into a Chase Bank and then back into a CVS again. John Mulaney also makes a quick appearance, but the best part is when Hader slips up with some giggles of his own. …

‘Saturday Night Live’ cold open tackles Trump’s Tillerson and McCabe firings

By Adam Rosenberg


Last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former FBI director Andrew McCabe were fired. The former happened at the behest of Donald Trump and the latter came at the end of an independent investigation that was in no way influenced by Trump’s frequent social media lashings of McCabe.

Saturday Night Live seized on the White House upheaval in an Anderson Cooper-led (Alex Moffat) cold open featuring interviews with Tillerson (John Goodman); Attorney General Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon), who fired McCabe; former White House communications director Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci (Bill Hader); and Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff (Fred Armisen). …

How many times have you accidentally tripped over your laptop cord, only to tear the entire thing out of your computer? Or even worse, have your laptop come plummeting down with it? Yeah, it’s not pretty.

Chargers offer an easy way to power up any device — be it a laptop, tablet, or phone — but they’re certainly not designed with klutzes in mind.

Steven Spielberg explained why ‘Ready Player One’ only references the original ‘Star Wars’

By Jess Joho


As an unabashed homage to geek culture and 80s nostalgia smorgasboard, you probably assumed Ready Player One would be dripping with Star Wars references.

You’d be wrong.

While the marketing for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming movie showed zero restraint when it came to pop culture references, the director said he was actually careful about name-dropping Star Wars. Or rather, which Star Wars movies he included from the ever-expanding movie franchise.

“We didn’t want to use the main cultural icons from any of the Disney Star Wars films, because those are ongoing. That’s really part of our contemporary world right now. And even though it began in the ’80s, it is so much a part of our real life today in the 21st century. So we asked for some of the smaller items, and Disney gave us everything we asked for,” Spielberg said at a SXSW interview with Fandango. …
