Episode 120: Laugh or you’ll cry

Show Notes:

I talk about what Robin William’s ment to me.  I also talk about his less popular movies “Popeye”, “Hook”, “What Dreams May Come”, “World’s Greatest Dad”.  I also talk about how life is sometimes like Nietzsche’s eternal return.  I’m not sure I actually said that but it was in my notes.  I was head over heels for a comedian as a child and guess what, it’s happened again.  Robin Williams will forever be the standard by which I measure men. 

 

Finally, the world has never or will ever have a friend like you.  I end with his song from Aladin “Friend Like Me.”  RIP Robin Williams, I’ll always love you.

Many thanks to the gracious and charming Chris Hardwick.  His super power is his ability to make people feel at ease.

August 1st Chris Hardwick was on Bill Maher and he was delightful!  He talked about the isolating quality to social media.  My favorite point was that we should seek understanding in our interactions with others.  He is a very wise, emphatic and articulate man.
