Asking Bing ChatGPT/4, Write about ‘Chris Farley and Adam Sandler on SNL’

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog where I share my thoughts on comedy, movies, and pop culture. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite comedy duos of all time: Chris Farley and Adam Sandler on SNL.

Chris Farley and Adam Sandler were both cast members on Saturday Night Live from 1991 to 1995, and they created some of the most hilarious and memorable sketches in the show’s history. They had great chemistry and timing, and they could make each other laugh like no one else. They also had a lot of heart and sincerity, which made their characters more relatable and endearing.

Some of their best sketches include:

  • The Gap Girls: Chris and Adam played two sassy and sarcastic saleswomen at a clothing store, along with David Spade. They would gossip, complain, and insult their customers, while stuffing their faces with french fries. Their catchphrase was “Lay off me, I’m starving!”
  • Matt Foley: Chris played a motivational speaker who lived in a van down by the river. He would try to scare kids straight with his loud and aggressive style, but he would end up breaking furniture, falling down, and making a fool of himself. Adam played one of the kids who had to endure his lectures.
  • Lunch Lady Land: Adam played a guitar-playing cafeteria worker who sang a song about the lunch lady (played by Chris) and her love affair with a sloppy joe (also played by Chris). The song was catchy, funny, and surprisingly touching.
  • Zagat’s: Chris and Adam played a married couple who were obsessed with reading restaurant reviews from the Zagat’s guide. They would argue over where to eat, while quoting the guide verbatim. They would also annoy their waiter (played by Chris Rock) with their indecisiveness and demands.

These are just some of the examples of how Chris Farley and Adam Sandler made SNL a must-watch show in the early ’90s. They were both fired from the show in 1995, which was a huge loss for SNL and comedy fans. They went on to star in several movies together, such as Tommy Boy, Billy Madison, and Happy Gilmore.

Sadly, Chris Farley passed away in 1997 from an accidental overdose of cocaine and morphine. He was only 33 years old. His death was a tragedy for his family, friends, and fans. He was one of the most talented and beloved comedians of his generation.

Adam Sandler paid tribute to his friend and co-star in 2019, when he hosted SNL for the first time. He sang a song about Chris Farley, which was heartfelt, emotional, and hilarious. He reminded us of how much we miss Chris Farley and how much he made us laugh.

Chris Farley and Adam Sandler on SNL were a comedy dream team. They made us laugh until we cried, and they touched our souls with their humor and humanity. They are legends in the history of SNL and comedy. I hope you enjoyed this blog post about them. Thanks for reading!


Designing Windows 95’s User Interface

Socket 3

win95uidesignThree years ago I came across an interesting paper written up by a Microsoft employee, Kent Sullivan, on the process and findings of designing the new user interface for Windows 95. The web page has since been taken down – one reason why I’m a bit of a digital hoarder.

It specified some of the common issues experienced from Windows 3.1’s Program Manager shell and looked at the potential of developing a separate shell for ‘beginners’. Admittedly my inclination was that this was possibly inspired by Apple’s At Ease program that was reasonably popular during the System 7 days. I remember At Ease well during my primary school years, so kids couldn’t mess with the hard disk in Finder.

So here’s what Kent had to say verbatim in his paper titled “The Windows 95 User Interface: A Case Study in Usability Engineering” so it’s not lost altogether.

My Autistic Fractals in the 4th Dimension of Consciousness

Henny Kupferstein

In UNIPAZ, Brasilia, I had the honor of presenting my lived experience to a class of transpersonal psychology students. In my presentation, I demonstrate how my eyes sees objects as conceptual fractals from within the 4th dimension of consciousness. You may notice some gaps in the talking. This video has been edited to remove the Portuguese translation provided in realtime by Alfredo. 

English transcription of presentation at UNIPAZ, Brazil:

Being in the United States diagnosed as autistic, provided me a really nice fancy package to understand my differences. But the more I understood myself, the more I was witnessing the trauma of those who did not have the privilege of this identity. As you are going through transformation in your education, you are experiencing an evolution of your own identity. That is a privilege that you now have, because you can choose this process. 

The autistic child is under identity…

The Center for Experimental Telepathy

The bright half-circle of the moon catches Naveed’s eye and he looks up to see it is illuminated from the wrong side, a smile when it should be a frown. A few years ago this would have drawn crowds of upturned faces, a full spectrum of expressions from mesmerized wonder to epinephrine-drenched horror. Now nobody seems to notice.

This is the global phenomenon in microcosm: when the end of the universe comes, people react not with panic and chaos but with boredom and indifference.

Of course, it isn’t really the end of the universe; only our universe, or what we thought was our universe. And it came gradually enough — gradual on the timescale modern humans are used to serious events unfolding, anyway.

Enough that scientists had an opportunity to go through their perplexities and arguments and coalesce around a few theories nobody could disprove, the least implausible of which…

20 Years After Tony: Wilson Jermaine Heredia on the poignant & lasting impact of Rent

“Maybe a couple months later after the Tonys, my mom looked at me and said ‘You know, you could still be a doctor.’ The entire experience was humbling but it’s good to have people around you that humble you.”

BLEEP Magazine

It’s been 20 years since Rent debuted and changed the landscape of American theatre. From magazine covers, to fans lined up around the block, to winning the Pulitzer, Rent was the Hamilton of its time. In the middle of that swirl of fandom and activism was Wilson Jermaine Heredia who played Angel and went on to originate the role in the West End and in the film. For Heredia, who had until then worked in Off Broadway shows, making his Broadway debut in such a huge show was overwhelming.

“I felt like I was in shock initially,” Heredia said. “When Rent hit, we were the center of attention and for most of us, we were completely new to it. It was a whirlwind, it was scary, we were self-exposed but felt appreciated at the same time…it was a roller coaster.”
