Someone on the internet made this and I think it’s cool. Still so sad today. People like Joan Rivers and Sarah Silverman made me think I belonged in comedy instead of feeling like a kid sister tagging along in someone else’s career field. Loved seeing Joan perform when I was starting out in NY it made me feel euphoric and inspired and full of awe. She was electric - better than everyone and took more risks. The doc about her “A Piece of Work” almost instantly brought me to tears and I realized how thirsty I was to see the narrative of a female comedy legend and feel we are a part of this story and the evolution of a craft. She was the epitome of fearless. Fearless doesn’t mean you don’t feel afraid it means you do it anyway and walk through the fear. If you’re a young comedian also read Phyllis Diller “Like a Lampshade in a Whorehouse” if you want to feel inspired and like you belong. Sending love to every comedian as we keep losing our heroes. Back to being sad. Bye❤️Rest in laughs Joan💖

OMFG. THIS. SHOW.

weirdly relevant to the question I answered yesterday.

Just repeat to yourself “This isn’t the Olympics, it’s an industry” and go make those comics!!!!!!!!!

this reminds me of this great Garann Means post about software development https://the-pastry-box-project.net/garann-means/2014-july-16

Jan. 17, 1956: From the annals of improbable aircraft, the Army’s aerocycle, tested at Camp Kilmer, N.J., by Chris Kopp of de Lackner Helicopter. Like a wacky harbinger of Segway technology, the aerocycle was reported to have “two advantages over the conventional helicopter — it is more stable and it is easier to control because the operator steers it by leaning his body in the desired direction.” For the overdetermined navigator who feared leaning too far and falling on the rotating blades, there was a safety belt, and a rubber doughnut absorbed the shock if the pilot came down too hard.

I’m the biggest nerd: wearing the National, listening to the National, about to go to the National @ Celebrate Bklyn. I’m afraid of everyone, even myself. Honk if you like boy bands.

Edgar Wright - How to Do Visual Comedy By Tony Zhou

I’d be remiss not to link this wonderful tribute to Edgar Wright.

While it’s more than a little reductive to throw all “”American”” comedies under the bus to make the point, I do more than agree that Edgar Wright gets visual comedy on a level that few of his peers—nationality notwithstanding—aren’t rivaling, let alone comprehending.

Far as my own taste runs, yeah, the man’s a bit of a genius.

So grateful for what he’s given us.

yoisthisracist:

Yeah, it’s weird that whenever racists talk about their friends who aren’t white, they’re always imaginary.
