The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

I think it's interesting as well, though at the same time it is completely expected. We work based off of a sort of hive mind, broadly speaking. When you meet someone, you judge that person based off of your own experiences, or of what society says of them, because that's how we survived as a species to this point. We work quickly that way, so we can best plan how to deal/interact with whatever we are interacting/dealing with. If you meet a white man wearing a suit, with clean cut hair and clean shaven face, you assume they're an authority figure in something (business, government, and so on) and act accordingly. You wouldn't treat someone like that like you would a thug or little kid.

I think the interesting part comes from how the 'mainstream' deals and interacts with those that are on the fringe. In America, there is a negative stigma of transvestites and people generally try to avoid a conversation dealing with that subject, or say whatever they please and try to get past it as fast as they can. Geeks and nerds, on the other hand, are generally more accepted, and the negative stigma they once had is changing. Depending on the details that make someone non-mainstream, we are inclusive of what we deem useful, or at least the usefulness makes people more understanding of the 'out' people because interaction generally breeds understanding.

I have been enjoying it, but at the same time it is immensely stressful since in am aiming at a distinction average so I can go on to further study- all the while whilst working 3 and 1/2 days a week.:/ but I am managing.

Job hunt update- going slow, little in the way of replies so I've been tinkering with CVS and getting some help with applications. All a bit rubbish, but I'll get it in the end.

Exactly. Very difficult to wield I think. My perspective is either it will be 'ok' or it will be crap. I don't think it will be able to ever a achieve a title of 'great'.

Probably not, although as someone who generally enjoys the prequels, I'm a bit more optimistic. Especially since it seems like this one will not be quite as focused on the huge battle-scapes of the first three.
