Still pretty hot out today. Went to see the new "Ghostbusters", thought it was decently funny. I liked Kate McKinnon's weird theatricality the best. I expect --- and maybe this expectation comes only from the era that I actually watched saturday night live, back in the Dana Carvey-Mike Myers-Phil Hartman days of yore --- a kind of awkwardness of comedy from snl alums, and her schtick, at least in this performance was in contrast just impeccably self-assured, and it really worked.
