Good lord, it's been 30 years, and this is getting old. I have grown up to SNL, and it's true, they have a lot of hits and misses. But they always did. Most kiddies who say SNL hasn't been the same "grew up" to the syndicated 30 minute spots that were in repeated since the late 80s. That's 30 minutes from 90 minutes. A lot of bad skits were removed. On top of that, it's hard to write, rehearse, and pull off a performance in a week. Especially with some guests who don't have real acting talent, or don't show up for rehearsal. I know. I used to write and act for Prune Bran, remember? Give them a break.
Legos aren't good anymore because the pieces are so specialized!
Oh, boo hoo. If anything, you get more creative as to how to use them, but if you want to keep using the standard 2 x 4 bricks, you can buy them in bulk. I just got a 50th Anniversary Tub, which has a lot of the "older bricks." You can try Brick Link or eBay for even better deals. The Web has shown us we can do so much with Legos.
