I am really looking forward to seeing Alabama Shakes at SNL next weekend. I can’t see them in concert, so SNL will have to do. I will be finishing with my work at DISH in time to get home and see the show. My roommates aren’t as big of fans of SNL as I am, so they usually end up watching Game of Thrones in their room. Now that we have a DISH Hopper whole-home DVR, we can watch up to four separate programs at the same time. While I catch SNL in the living room, my roommates can watch Game of Thrones in their room
without the worry of interrupting each other.

It’s Christoph Waltz. Not Christopher. But anyway, the Alabama Shakes should help reverse the damage Justin Bieber will do on SNL two weeks prior..
