The late, great New York hip-hop icon Notorious B.I.G. is the inspiration behind a new comedy series coming to TBS.

Some gratitude/observations throughout my day, so far.
- Sitting on an 8th floor office, sipping a cup of coffee. I’m not a coffee snob, so… yes, I have no idea how they made it, but it’s pretty damn good.

- Quality time with Peanut before heading out. Gave him a treat, fed him, changed his bowl of water and provided much needed kisses.
- An ATM in the building’s lobby: sweet!
- Remembering past great American Dad moments, most of them not rape-related (seriously, what’s with American Dad and Family Guy’s morbid fascination with child molestation and rape?)
Some basic House of Cards knowledge.
The mythology of Saturday Night Live is undeniable. I haven’t watched a complete episode in the years (due to lack of cable), but I recognize the memorable performances and sketches throughtout the years (I haven’t ruled out getting a More Cowbell tattoo someday). However, after listening to Harry Shearer’s episode on WTF, I now realize that Lorne Michaels is a darker character than we’ve been led to believe.
Power moves, mind games, racism… not funny stuff. Unlike this sketch featuring Shearer and Martin Short!
