laugh -verb [laf, lahf]


–verb (used withoutobject) express mirth, pleasure, derision, or nervousness with an audible, vocal expulsion of air from the lungs that can range from a loud burst of sound to a series of quiet chuckles and is usually accompanied by characteristic facial and bodily movements. experience the emotion so expressed: He laughed inwardly at the scene.

Joseph Gordon Levitt of recent 500 Days of Summer and of more vintage 10 things I hate about you fame hosted SNL this weekend. Seeing as I've been living on a student budget all year
(ie: popcorn for breakfast with boxes of wine to wash it down) I don't have cable. But the one night as was at a friends watching the episode hosted by (the uber boring) January Jones of Madmen they promo'd JGL hosting. I was like YES. Even MFox couldn't get me to scour for whole online episodes of SNL but that's how it went down for this episode. Thus is the power of a well dressed man dancing to 'Make my Dreams' by Simon and Garfunkle for you (gentlemen take note).
Anyways, introduced by charming monologue Joseph performed his opening speech as a cover of Make 'Em Laugh from Singing in The Rain. It was so cute. If you have not seen Singing in The Rain you probably didn't understand it. But really, what is there to understand? He was wearing adorably endearing amounts of tweed and backflipping off walls. Just enjoy it.
Merci SNL for providing such a stylish host for your fashionista (or fashinisto) viewers.
Also, please start being funny again. New writers aren't hard to come by, just shanghai some from NYU, I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige
