'Comedy is acting out optimism.'

- Robin Williams

Some actors, scenes and quotes - especially comedy quotes - feel like they're always around. From first seeing Police Squad on late night TV (and for the first 10 minutes not knowing it was a spoof) to Airplane and Naked Gun... and later realising he actually used to be a straight actor in such classics as Forbidden Planet - Leslie Nielsen was one of those guys who was just always - always Stupidly funny. As usual AintitCool have the best article.

Once you have given up the ghost, everything follows with dead certainty, even in the midst of chaos.

- Henry Miller.

With hindsight and considering my current mood, maybe listening to The Fragile while reading Tropic of Capricorn wasn't the smartest move. Or maybe it's just right.

Quote of the Day

Alcohol is like love. The first kiss is magic, the second is intimate, the third is routine. After that you take the girl's clothes off.

Quote of the Day

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
Michael Jordan
