• Justin Timberlake makes a great Justin Vernon

Lately Saturday Night Live has been investing pretty heavily in hipsters, social-currency-wise, especially in terms of its music bookings—if the show’s past overreliance on proven hit makers and irrelevant legacy bands promoting unexciting new albums was reminiscent of Rolling Stone, then recent appearances by virtual unknowns (at least to mainstream audiences) like Lana Del Rey and Sleigh Bells have been positively Pitchforkian. I haven’t been a fan of every choice they’ve made recently—I had to turn off the episode Zooey Deschanel hosted before smirking ruiners of rap songs Karmin took the stage, because I was concerned that I might have done something rash and destructive out of anger—but I think the fact that I’ve seen more people actually seem to care about SNL‘s music bookings in the past few weeks than I have in years proves that they’re on the right track.
