But now we must pick up every piece, of the life we used to love

Maureen Dowd on Stephen Colbert, A Wit for All Seasons:

He (Stephen Colbert) describes himself as “an omnivore,” who loves everything from “A Man for All Seasons” to “Jackass,” from hip-hop to Ovid in the original Latin. He had 10 older siblings. But after his father and the two brothers closest to him in age died in a plane crash when he was 10 and the older kids went off to college, he said, he was “pretty much left to himself, with a lot of books.” He said he loved the “strange, sad poetry” of a song called “Holland 1945” by an indie band from Athens, Ga., called Neutral Milk Hotel and sent me the lyrics, which included this heartbreaking bit:

“But now we must pick up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on. . . .
And here is the room where your brothers were born
Indentions in the sheets
Where their bodies once moved but don’t move anymore.”

Read Dowd’s full article in the NY Times: A Wit for All Seasons.

Truth by Louis CK

help,empathy, kindnessgif,empathy,kindness,help


Louis Szekely, 46, known as Louis C.K., is a stand-up comedian, who has been described as the King of Middle Age Rage. C.K.’s father was born in Mexico, while C.K.’s mother is an American of Irish Catholic ancestry, originally from a farm in Michigan.  C.K. was born in Washington, D.C., but lived in Mexico City until the age of seven. His first language is Spanish, and he still retains Mexican citizenship. After graduating from High School, C.K. worked as an auto mechanic and at a public access TV cable station in Boston, while summoning the courage to try stand-up. He first took the stage in 1984 at an open-mic in.  He was so discouraged by the experience that he didn’t perform again for two years. As Boston’s comedy scene grew, he gradually achieved success, performing alongside acts such as Denis Leary and Lenny Clarke.  C.K. has been nominated for numerous Emmy Awards for his writing including his work for The Chris Rock Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Chewed Up and Louie.

“I don’t stop eating when I’m full. The meal isn’t over when I’m full. It’s over when I hate myself.”

“It seems like the better it gets, the more miserable people become. There’s never a technological advancement where people think, “Wow, we can finally do this!” And I think a lot of it has to do with advertising. Americans have it constantly drilled into our heads, every *$*@ day, that we deserve everything to be perfect all the time.”

Derek

ricky-gervais-is-derek_616

Do you have any regrets? ‘Yeah, that I always tried the easy way out, always, well I thought it was the easy way out. Always look for an angle, look for a shortcut, I should’ve tried, worked hard, but I gambled and I drank, I begged and hoped, I’m a coward, a failure I guess, I’m not a failure cause I didn’t succeed I’m a failure cause I didn’t try, I’m just glad I met Derek you know, not cause he’s better than me cause everyone’s better than me but cause he makes me feel better, better than everyone, Derek took the best shortcut you can, the only shortcut that’s good, and the only shortcut that works, and that’s kindness.'”

-Kev (TV Show Derek)


No matter what you think of Ricky Gervais, his new series titled Derek is worth watching.  Funny, heartfelt, moving…here’s an excerpt from a Rolling Stone review:

“You might not expect that a series produced, written, directed by and starring Ricky Gervais would find a way to bring a tear to your eye, but that’s precisely what the comedian’s new show Derek manages to do throughout its seven-episode run. Now streaming on Netflix, the series follows Derek Noakes (Gervais) – a kind, selfless, simple minded care worker in Broad Hill retirement home – and his friends and co-workers as they tend the home’s elderly residents, keep Broad Hill afloat and try their best to navigate through their own issues.” (Read Full Review in Rolling Stone)

Gervais has called the show “probably my favorite thing of everything I’ve done,” and we even put it on our list of the most underrated TV shows of 2012. (Read Review in Screenrant).

Si Says…Chill

Yes, I watch Duck Dynasty.  My guilty pleasure.  It is on A&E channel RIGHT NOW.  “Duck Dynasty broke records in its third season.  It is the second most watched television series behind “The Walking Dead.”   In the 18-49 demographic, “Duck Dynasty” had a 4.3 rating, beating “American Idol,” which had a 3.2 rating.”  (Over 8,000,000 viewers watched the season premiere.)

“Duck Dynasty is a reality (comedy) television series on A&E. It shows the lives of the Robertson family, who became wealthy from their family-operated business, Duck Commander, operated in West Monroe, Louisiana, which makes products for duck hunters, primarily the duck call named Duck Commander. The Robertson men, brothers Phil and Si, and Phil’s sons Jase, Willie, and Jep, are known for their long, flowing beards.  The business began in a dilapidated family shed, where Phil Robertson spent 25 years making duck calls from Louisiana cedar trees. His son Willie is now the CEO of the company.”

A jobless Senegalese man (Omar Sy) applies for a caregiver position for Philippe, a wealthy quadriplegic (Francois Cluzet). He is hired and brings Philippe a reinvigorated appreciation for living.  As improbable as the plot line may be, the movie is feel-good medicine for a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  It is light, warm-hearted and funny.  Omar Sy steals the show.  The movie was a smashing success in France.  Critics’ Reviews: Andrew O’Hehir (Salon), Roger Ebert (Sun-Times), Rex Reed (NY Observer).  DK Grade: * * * * *

#2: Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
#4: There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
#9: I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.
#11: You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you aren’t going to doing anything productive the rest of the day.
#22: I would rather try to carry 10 overloaded plastic bags in each hand than take two trips to bring the groceries in.
#24 I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
#25 How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you didn’t hear or understand a word they said?
#26 I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay Strong Brothers and Sisters.
#29 There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going down after leaning your chair back a little too far.

Guest Post: Squirm. Splash. Sink.

After reading Friday’s post (The King loses (again)…), Eric (18, son) was inspired to share a family vacation story.  The fact that he read my post was a head-scratcher…so best to nurture this sudden interest in both reading and writing.  I should disclose upfront, that I fail to see any humor in this story – and I say “story” as I don’t recall this version of the events.  Here it is…unedited and unplugged.  (And yes, the photo is an actual photo of me during the scuba lesson.)

scubaSQUIRM. SPLASH. SINK.

By Eric Kanigan

Anyone who knows my Dad personally can attest to the enjoyment he gets out of poking fun at others, to phrase it nicely (in reality it’s usually a firm jab rather than a poke). For those that do not know him, just imagine a person who loves to relive the details of your painfully embarrassing moments months, sometimes years after they occur. Throw in a mustache to your mental image and presto! You have David Kanigan!

It only seems fitting to return the favor, so it’s time for a trip down memory lane.

The King loses (again)…

The King’s choice of a summer vacation destination is scuttled. (sigh)

The King’s super-vote is thrown out.  Three years running. (sigh)

The King’s dreams of walking the Pont Neuf will need to wait another year.  (sigh)

Long live the King.  (Long enough to get to Paris)

Pont Neuf, River Seine, Paris, France

In memory of what could have been, here’s John Altman with “Under the Bridges of Paris” from the Soundtrack Let’s Dance:
