Gilda Susan Radner (June 28, 1946 – May 20, 1989) She was best known as an original cast member of Saturday Night Live, for which she won an Emmy Award in 1978. Between 1975 and 1980, she created characters such as obnoxious personal advice expert Roseanne Roseannadanna and "Baba Wawa", a parody of Barbara Walters. Walters stated in an interview that Radner was the "first person to make fun of news anchors, now it's done all the time." She also played the character Emily Litella, an elderly hearing-impaired woman who gave angry and misinformed editorial replies on "Weekend Update". In addition, Radner parodied celebrities such as Lucille Ball, Patti Smith, and Olga Korbut in SNL sketches. In 1986, Gilda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which a few women in her family had died from. After treatment, she went into remission, and appeared to be in good spirits. However, the cancer returned and was more aggressive. Her husband, actor Gene Wilder, was by her side when she died at age 42. Gilda Radner was b ...
Emily Litella's not shy about her opinions when it comes to violins on television.
I wrote a little something for Emily Litella, the Saturday Night Live editorial reply character created by Gilda Radner, of blessed memory: Ms. Litella: "What's all this fuss about hamas? This is not a group that deserves any kind of criticism. Hamas radio operators provide necessary communications during emergencies. As they say, 'When all else fails, there is hamas radio.' " Weekend Update Reporter: "Miss Litella, you're referring to HAM radio; a hobby that is invaluable for providing communications during disasters. Hamas is a corrupt, murderous organization that targets civilians and is a proxy army for Iran's terrorist ambitions." Ms. Litella: "Oh, well those people are not good. That's totally different. Never mind."
That was Emily Litella, the little old lady.
I think I stole that last one from Emily Litella. RIP Gilda Radner.
Economists are forgetting what rentier means? Wow. In that case - as Emily Litella would say - never mind!

I love C-SPAN. I am watching a program about mental health parity and I imagine an entire SNL Gilda Radner aka Emily Litella Weekend Update PSA about the evils of mental health parodies. Sorry young people, you have to be of a certain age to get that.

Is it just me or are Amazon's book reviews mildly insane? "MIDDLEMARCH: This book was terrible! I read all the way to the middle and nobody marched at all!" There's a pattern of expecting the title to literally manifest, or the cover photo to be reproduced in prose ("There was no woman in a backless dress looking at a distant lighthouse anywhere in this book! Thanks but no thanks!") that suggests the descendants of Emily Litella are their content providers.
What the average viewer hears: "The 22nd Winter Olympics." What my very funny wife and best editor hears: "The 20-second Olympic Winter Games."

We crack each other up.

What is all this talk about Sushi? Everywhere I turn it is Sushi this or Sushi that. It has been around for years and now everyone acts like it is the 'new' thing. Why is Sushi security so important? It is just raw fish. I mean really why.What? What is that? It is 'Sochi' not 'Sushi'? Oh, that's very different.Never Mind! (If you are under 45 or did so many drugs in the 70's that you can't remember the original cast of SNL you should Google Gilda Radner (Emily Litella). This post will make more sense. R.I.P. Gilda.)
As Emily Litella would say, "America The Beautiful is NOT our national anthem???.Never mind."

Emily Litella was a fictional character played by comedianGilda Radner in a series of appearances on Saturday Night Live.[1] Based on a person in her early life, Emily Litella was a popular character in Radner's comedy repertoire.
I stole this from the folks at Guitars Not Guns, a group dedicated to helping kids gain music skills (guitar in particular) in a low teacher-student ratio with the broader noble goal not of opposing guns, but of opposing gun violence. And "like" this if you remember the Gilda Radner "Emily Litella" character on SNL.

New book idea: "Summa Dis, Summa Dat" A collection of History...my way, Dad says, Emily Litella and Rodney tributes, humorous (hopefully) poetry and short fiction pieces. Back cover will be faux quotes by famous dead people.
Another sign I need new glasses: I just saw an add that mentioned Christina Aguilera, but I thought it read Christian Algebra. I thought, "Yep, I did a LOT of praying when I took algebra." As Emily Litella once said, "Oh, that's quite different. Never mind."
Why wouldn't postage stamps go up on the first of the month? Wouldn't that make it easier for everyone to remember? Of course, this post is based on the supposition that there are tons of people who care, which of course if there were would mean the post office wouldn't be in the dire straits they are in, so perhaps a great big Emily Litella never mind" is in order.
I just had a total Emily Litella moment: Listening to the news about Justin Beiber's arrest, I thought the commentator said "People are now wearing 'FREE BEAVER" t-shirts. I snickered like a 13-year-old. I should go back to work and lay off the white-out.
FRUSTRATION!! Cannot access my favorite clips of SNL which include, besides the ones below, Church Chat with Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, Coffee Talk with Madonna/Roseanne/Barbra Streisand, Daily Affirmation with Michael Jordan, Gilda/Emily Litella on "Violence", Chris Farley and Patrick Swayzee audition for the Chippendales, Justin Timberlake in the leotard dancing to Beyonce's--put a ring on it, and countless other oldies but goodies not mentioned...THOSE are my favorites!!

Mr. Shawn This technology is scary, I'm awed that in less than five minutes (i'm a slow keyboarder, what a term, didn't exist when I first saw Shawn) I tracked you down. My last memory from an album cover was that he was living in Italy so I started with International People Search.. "Never-mind" to quote Emily Litella from SNL circa 1975, I gottcha! I am now 57 and recently found and played and replayed and replayed, and it's on now ( after repairing the cassette player from salvaged units..you can't get many key parts any more) a tape I made off my sisters albums. When I first played it, I cried and I laughed..out loud, alone. I also sang along and didn't hardly miss a word, maybe a note or two, I can't cover three octaves! I had forgotten just how important and formative your poetry was to me. The incredible guitar and orchestration gave me chills again, still.

So, I'm standing in Food Lion, looking at my bride's grocery list, and ask myself, "What the *** is local hot chocolate?" I work up a pretty good steam, fretting, "No one around here makes hot chocolate. Why does she care? Even if someone did, Food Lion wouldn't carry it!" Then I have my Emily Litella moment.

Last night I wish I could have found a sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever so I could rest medicine ... But all I found was Nigh Quill...how is having a revolutionary writing instrument near me going to make me feel better?? Oh wait, did I misread that...it's NyQuil you say? Ah, never mind.

I keep hearing 4G-LTE network in advertising and my mind keeps hearing the voice of Emily Litella saying, "What's all this fuss I keep hearing about 4G-LGBT Networks?" I miss you Gilda.
English is such a goofy language. No wonder we have such a hard time communicating and understanding each other. We have these words that sound alike but mean different things. I was reading something on the computer when a commercial comes on I'm half listening to. Trojan Bare Skin condoms. And my first thought was bear skin what? How many condoms can you get out of one bear skin? Then I looked at the TV and read what they were selling. Like Emily Litella, "Oh, never mind."
Miss Emily Litella: "What's all this I hear about super Nova's? I had a Nova back in the day and it was a lemon of a car. I was just .what? Nova in space? Never mind."
Last night I dreamt about Gilda Radner. I don't remember much of the dream. I think I fell down and when I looked up, there was Emily Litella staring down at me asking me if I was all right. You bet I was all right. I said I was and she said, "Never mind," and went away. But if Gilda Radner is showing up in my dreams, I can't ask for better.
So if you have bought our record and you like it, please consider giving us a review on iTunes, CDBaby or amazon! If, on the other hand, you didn't like our record...well, in the words of Emily Litella..."never mind"

"What's all this fuss I hear about The Hour of Cold?". — Emily Litella 2013
It's National Ice Cream and Violins Day. It must be real because I read about it online. I've done a little research and it looks like somewhere around 2006 the second National Ice Cream Day and Violins on Television Day got combined into the current melange day. Someone copied it and it just multiplied until it became a "real" day. It's a strange time of year for an ice cream day, the more popular choice is the one in July. Several national chains give out free ice cream on that day. The original Violins on Television Day was created to honor the late Gilda Radner. If you're too young to remember Gilda Google "Emily Litella." In Scandinavia it's St Lucia Day, when girls in white dresses walk around in flaming crowns. Not the best choice for Friday the 13th. Keep that fire extinguisher handy. For the rest of Christendom it's the Feast Day of Saint Odilia of Alsace the patron saint of filicide. On this day in history in 1577 Drake set out to sail around the world, in 1636 the US National Guard was founded, ...

Nights like tonight make me just a wee bit sorry I didn't have children so ... wait, what? Teenagers DON'T walk dogs in single-digit weather? How about washing windows on command? Or mopping floors?

The myth dies hard. Finding a better job via more education and ambition is a comical notion these days. In today's economy and today's society, the difference between flipping burgers and something much better is a matter of luck. Lucky timing, lucky coincidences on your resume, and luck with regard to how pretty you are. But wait a minute... That's ALWAYS been the case. "Nevermind,' says Emily Litella, from SNL.

Sometimes I wonder if I am becoming like Emily Litella...

Ha. My senator (Mark Udall) is having a fundraiser in which you can win a chance to spend some time with Robert Redford. Anyone who knows me knows that he is my all-time favorite, I've had a crush on him for about 30 years. So when I got the email, I misread it as "do you want a chance to make out with Robert Redford? If so, donate here. I practically broke my fingers trying to donate. Till I reread the email. Do you want to have a chance to HANG out with Robert Redford. Oh. (say in your best Emily Litella voice) that's very different. Nevermind.

I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Everyone's talking about the Python reunion this and the Python reunion that. Who cares, I say! Python is so yesterday; I've moved on to Scala. Good riddance to Python and its meaningful white-space indentation stuff. I mean, back in the day, we did that white-space thing with FORTRAN. A C in column one for comments, columns 2-5 blank or line numbers. Column 6 blank except for continuations. Horrible! It was a mistake and we moved on. Then Python starts the white-space thing all over again. A Python reunion? Good place to go and give them all a solid smack on the head, that's what I say! -- Emily Litella, Programmer
The late, great, Emily Litella came to me in a dream last night. She asked me what all the fuss was about the Affordable Chair Act. I told her I didn't know either.
I'm in the shower this morning and my husband comes in and says, "Dennis t-boned your car." I'm hoping it's an Emily Litella moment and what he really said was, "the dentist has a t-bone in his ear." Unfortunately, I heard it right the first time!
I'm tired of hearing how the 85% of people who have health insurance through their corporations aren't effected by the current state of the Affordable Care Act. My premium went up 25% from last year...a MASSIVE increase from previous years.and this is the "waiver" year. And now, the governmental "fix" for the system is to basically ignore the law - - the law we were told "to deal with". Where is Emily Litella when you need her?

Don't eat grapefruit. And if you do have cankers, don't fiddle with them. Keep your fingers out of your mouth." Emily Litella
Oh, maybe it's because of my 35th reunion, but I miss the Seventies. Emily Litella (Gilda Radner) "What's all this talk I hear about Endangered Feces? Why I don't know why you would save such a thing in the first place!" That's endangered species, Emily. "Oh, that's different. Never mind."
"What's all this talk about secessionism?"- Emily Litella
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006 As Emily Litella would say, "Oh, nevermind!"
I was just about to post the question "Who are these Cowboys?!" and then Romo threw an INT.in the words of Emily Litella, "Never mind"
I can totally picture Gilda Radner's character Emily Litella going off on how lawnmakers should have nothing to do with govern…
You know what? Just because I want to hear Emily Litella does not mean I'm a scumbag who wants to hurt other human beings or who would think it's funny if other people do. I just think Gilda Radner is funny; and, since she was on Saturday Nigh Live for years, as well as in comedy films and she made records and did stand up acts, apparently, I am not the only person to ever think so. Anyone who thinks that me wanting to hear her get things a little wrong and go off on a tangent means I would hurt someone else on purpose can just so bite me. I'm very hurt myself, by anyone thinking I am that person. I'm going back to bed.
If Emily Litella were alive today, she'd probably say "What's all this fuss about OSAMAcare? I don't see how getting tossed into the ocean in a lead coffin qualifies as great medical care! What?...It's not OSAMAcare?...It's OBAMAcare? Everyone gets affordable medical coverage?...Well, that's completely different. Never mind."

Watch the latest Saturday Night Live Clip (Weekend Update: Emily Litella on Violins on TV) on IMDb
Anyone remember Emily Litella? Gilda Radner? SNL original cast? O.K., if ya do, listening to the radio, I heard a commercial about a benefit for wounded warriors. For some reason, I thought of Emily hearing "wounded lawyers." Imagine her rant about that...and then that look: What? Oh, never mind...

I scare myself. Working on my book project, and suddenly, my disc drive is gone. Poof. Panic. Scramble, Nothing, Panic, Reboot, Panic. I have stuff backed up, but panic nonetheless. Check the plug in back of the drive. Good. Panic more. I hooked up another drive the other day, maybe conflict? 86 new drive. Still Phfft. PANIC. Collect head, institute rational thought. Checked connection at COMPUTER side. FireWire cord came half out when installed new drive the other day. Plugged it back in all the way, errant drive remounted. Emily Litella time.
Emily Litella's not shy about her opinions.
This sounds like Gilda Radner doing Emily Litella. Jane Curtain would explain in the most caustic way she could muster. Emily would say, "Well, thats very different. Nevermind."

Typography of the day. Exploring the Ample Hills Creamery website, I misread the ingredients of one flavor as "Mulled apple cider sorbet sweetened with maple syrup, spiced with cinnamon, ginger and doves." My eyesight is for the birds.
At least Emily Litella was deaf: what's these folks' excuse?
Great post Cindy. It clarifies that kids can pray in schools if they rant too.

I just read the Rachel Maddow blog and it had a story about a group of protestors from a church in North Carolina who marched to the school board's offices because they wanted kid to have the right to pray voluntarily in school, only to be told that students CAN pray voluntarily. They just can't be LED in prayers. Hearing that, they realized it was a case of simple misunderstanding. The blog likened it to Gilda Radner's SNL character Miss Emily Litella and linked to one of the skits where she was complaining about the lack of violins on television. I watched the skit and it definitely made me remember why I'd loved Gilda so much. We need someone like her again in today's world.
Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general in the military. This is a snot-nose twerp who has never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership: he hasn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team or commanded a military platoon. So guess what---next they make him the "beloved leader" of North Korea. Oh, crap! I'm sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing here in the USA. We took an arrogant community organizer who has never worn a uniform and made him Commander-in-Chief; a guy who has never had a real job, worked on a budget or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and made him the leader of the USA. I'm sorry I brought this up. Never mind. FPV U S M C
