Are we all perhaps linked by invisible bonds? Do the actions of one affect others, even if those others are far away? Our lives and the universe itself may be all part of a single mechanism in which all creatures and events are 'entangled' with one another.

Videos Of The Week

Trapped inside by the recent snowstorm and not being able to find anything good to watch on TV, I spent today watching old comedy video clips online. Here are a few of my favorites.

I love Stephen Wright's strange sense of humor and his twisted way of seeing things. Here's an old clip from one of his routines:

One of the greatest stand-up comics was Rodney Dangerfield, as seen in this next video. I once heard Rodney say in an interview, not long before he died, that he wasn't afraid of death even though he really didn't believe in life after death. But wherever you are now, Rodney, I hope you are getting the respect you deserve.

When I was a kid, I loved to watch Abbott and Costello movies on TV. They had the funniest comedy routines I'd ever seen. Here is their most famous bit:

In "Turtle Mode"
That's right....I am currently in "Turtle Mode". What's that, you ask?

Well that's what I tend to do whenever I'm feeling stressed out or really tired. And lately I've been a bit of both. So I withdraw into my shell (like a turtle) and wait for better times to poke my head out. Between my job and this seemingly endless winter, both of which I'm really sick of, I just withdraw to a quieter place inside my own little world.
This is the reason I haven't been posting much on the blog--even though I think of stuff, I just can't work up the energy to write it down. I do want to do a little re-design here and become more consistent in posting, but it will probably take me a while to motivate myself to do it.
Unfortunately, I'm running out of time right now (gotta go to work---uggh!) so I'll have to continue my whining & complaining at a later time...hehe!
