As a child born in 1970, I grew up in a culture that has become more and more media-saturated, and has recently come to define itself by asking “Who remembers the thing that holds your 45 RPM records in place?”  We’ve also grown up in a world where there was always a live, late-night comedy program whose value is in the eye of the beholder (but will still somehow never be as good as it used to be) and for me, it’s not the weekend without ‘Saturday Night Live’.  For one thing, it’s my only window to young Zach’s taste in music, and given my long-standing crush on Tina Fey (and, more recently, Cecily Strong), it’s a traditional part of my weekend, especially now that my primary job affords weekends off.  It’s just not Saturday without Saturday Night, which begs today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) also doesn’t mind the part where I don’t have to be up at 6:45 a.m., but that seems like bragging when not everyone gets weekends off, asking: What’s your favorite part of the weekend?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    After some Life Events, and moving to California last year, I found a gaming group and have been playing Pathfinder on Saturday nights (after a good 18 year hiatus from RPGs,) so that is my favorite part of the weekend. :)

    I always look forward to my gaming group sessions, whether it’s out Legion of Super-Heroes 4000 game, Ravenloft, or other.

    My schedule changes on a week to week basis, so weekends are somewhat meaningless to me. Sometimes I’ll be working twelve hours a day, and sometimes I’ll have them completely free.

    I guess the only consistent weekend thing I do is listen to Critical Hit, so that gets my vote.

    When my goddaughter and I do our own little “MST3K” most weekends. We rent or check TV listings for cheesy, bad or just awful movies and just make fun of them the whole time. Sometimes our friends like to come watch because they find the whole thing amusing.
