I am afraid of heights, but this is actual footage of me on a zip line. Tami Sagher described my form as a “suction cup Garfield on a car window,” which I think is accurate.
I first saw this Abbot & Costello sketch when I was in middle school. It blew my mind. It was my first lesson in bullshitting and justification.
For some reason I woke up this morning thinking about it.
Damn I love it. So Good.
guys I’m on Laughing Squid
what the fuck
Yay Paige is the greatest and everyone must know it.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example.
Hey, everyone is rightfully talking a lot right now about how important it is to seek treatment for your mental health issues. That’s true. That’s soooo important and nothing you should feel ashamed about. Seek help, it will save your life. That said, I also want to take a moment to give everyone who has already sought help a big hug. Congratulations, guys. You’ve taken a big, bold and important step and you’re working daily on maintaining your health, even if it doesn’t feel like it. I’m glad you’re still with us and I’m glad you’re looking after yourself.
