I have some sympathy for David Spade who spent most of his career at SNL having all his best stuff stolen by Dana Carvey.  He's on tonight to talk about The Spoils of Babylon where he's not even a listed cast member.

It will, of course, be another lousy Jon Stewart "inside comedy" interview.

Saul Williams is a poet, singer, and actor who's written a fair number of hip hop songs recorded by other artists.  He'll be on to talk about his starring role in Holler If Ya Hear Me, a new Broadway musical inspired by the lyrics of Tupac Shakur and Michael Eric Dyson's book of the same name.

Of course to me the most interesting thing about him is his work in 2007 with Trent Reznor on The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust.

Don't forget Saturday is Derby Day and Monday Cinco de Mayo, both of which we will cover at The Stars Hollow Gazette and DocuDharma

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
