oh, curb. LD, how much do i love you? not enough to bed you, but take that amount and subtract a fraction. thats how much. oh buddy.
he made a funny comment on letterman last week about not getting laid much. brian stelter wrote about it in the nytimes today:
Similarly, it did not come up on the Friday episode of “The Late Show,” which was taped on Thursday. But some viewers noticed a pointed comment about Mr. Letterman’s personal life by his guest on Friday’s show, Larry David, the star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
“I’ve probably broken a record for the least amount of sex for a person who has their own television show,” Mr. David said to Mr. Letterman, adding, “I probably broke yours.”
Mr. Letterman laughed sheepishly as the audience clapped. “I don’t know,” the host said. “Oh, buddy.”
i love the concept of regeneration. you’re not casting off your core … you are merely evolving, renewing. if you are going to be happy in this life, you must regenerate. disappointments happen. tragedies happen. random events occur throwing us out of our comfort zones. you have to shed the dead skin. leave that which you’ve outgrown or outlived behind. it’s sad when people are involved. i hate goodbyes. this week i ended it with a therapist i’ve been seeing for 5+ years. she agreed i was ready. we hugged and cried and recapped the “greatest hits” in my personal development. “i thought it was a great move when you bleached your hair!” she said. cute.the core of who you are is always there. the core people who are in your heart, in your self-created family are there. when one energy leaves, a new one arrives. such is life. i’ve posted this before, but think it bears repeating … this fabulous little animated video for the jdilla song “nothing like this”:
Last night some work buds and I went to see The September Issue, a documentary about worldwide fashion icon Anna Wintour, the famous/infamous editor of American Vogue. She’s the larger than life boss upon which the runaway bestselling book and hit film The Devil Wears Prada is based.
The film was fascinating, amusing and had so very much to relate to for anyone who works in a creative environment. The drama. The tension. The meltdowns. The button-pushing. The striving. The collaboration. The rivalry. The diplomacy. The brilliance. The callousness. The waste. The work itself is not the challenge. It’s getting the people to work together to do it.
Am also reading a book about the making of The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St. Totally fascinating to hear how that record was put together and all that went into it. It sounded utterly chaotic. So much was random. Yet so much of it was the product of their years of experience together (not random).
There is a beautiful thing that happens when a team, a unit evolves to a superior level of performance. You can’t systematize it. You can’t acquire it. It’s evolution. The only way you arrive upon that point is by all moving forward together.
my friend got FOIA’d by a reporter for a political newspaper, of which you are likely aware.
she is a “high ranking official” in government. Under the Freedom of Information Act her email correspondence could be subpoenaed and reviewed by said journalist.
consequently work email is hardly used in said government institution. most contentious discussions are done in person, or over PERSONAL email. what’s on the record is only a snapshot of the reality. but it does say something.
some arrogant political dopes still use their work email and IM for contentious matters, providing ample fodder for late night comedians.
if someone read your email for days on end, what kind of picture of you would it convey? how much do you care? (i care more than i want to, that’s for damned certain.)
said friend had to deal with her first taste of tough press coverage. that feeling of vulnerability and frustration.it takes a significant level of zen to detach and not let it bother you. or to minimize its impact. my advice is not to get dragged down by the negative stuff or get too high on the good stuff. that which comes up, must come down. you can’t believe the hype or take any of it personally. easier said than done, though, i am sure.
these chicks look kinda fun, don’t ya think?
