The New York Post published an interview with Adam Carolla on Sunday in which he said, among other things, “dudes are funnier than chicks,” and, regarding writing for television, “they make you hire a certain number of chicks, and they’re always the least funny on the writing staff.”
One of the best Maurice Sendak quotes…on an interaction with a child fan.
Children live high stakes lives. Left on their own, they die. Parents provide not just guidance, but the sustained daily illusion that simply being and playing is enough. All will be well. And maybe that’s true. Maybe that’s why we like it when movies remind us what life looked like through child eyes. Where The Wild Things Are is acutely aware of this longing and – alarmingly – treats it like the vulnerability it is. This movie is for grownups…
I know ‘Jane Doe’ was the gamechanger, but ‘You Fail Me’ is some of the most beautiful music & poetry I’ve ever heard. (Taken with instagram)

“When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.
That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.
Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
