8 Random Things

1. Louis CK:

2. Things That Definitely Belong In Your Dream Home

I could do without the "yard orb"... but everything else is fair game.

3. Words of Wisdom from Dan Harmon, Creator of the show Community:

- The old wives' tale among comics is, "If I stop being crazy I'll stop being funny," but the truth is if you stop being honest you'll stop being funny."

- ... what I love is when the show doesn’t presume any factual positions on things that have any binary truth to them. “Is there any such thing as true love?” The question is the important thing. There’s no answer.

- As humans, reality for us is largely based on other people's perceptions. If there's 20 bodies in your crawl space but you haven't been caught yet, you tell yourself you're still a birthday clown, and that's how you keep doing it.

- * There are several important things you need to do [to become a writer]. First, you need a round hole in your chest that goes all the way through you. I can never stress enough to the kids, it has to be a perfect circle, about the diameter of a drinking glass rim, it has to be in the absolute center of your chest – like where a heart would go on a plumber or a woman – and it has to go clean through you. If you’re standing in front of me and I can’t see the wall behind you, you’re never really going to write much more than a dream journal, recipe book, or maybe one of those manuals that tells people what writing is.

* (This is, hands down, one of the best "how do I know if I'm a writer" observations I've ever seen.)

- Community wasn’t “created,” it was developed, like all good TV. It always starts with a writer but that writer isn’t doing his job if he thinks the job is to make a TV show.

4. Love and War

5. Father of the Year

This dad hacked Donkey Kong so his daughter could play as Pauline and save Mario. He wins... at everything. 

6. Here's the runner up for Father of the Year

7. Some recent favorite tweets:

I'm glad cats don't know how big of a deal they are on the internet. They're already dicks, they don't need to know they're famous. - @shawnries

I don't think my neighbor knows my rule about not interacting unless we're both pointing at the same tornado. - @jasonroeder

And last but not least...

8. And because nothing I do would ever be complete without him...

“our mission remains the same … To make you wake up in the morning and say What the fuck happened to me?!” – Bruce Springsteen
