Over at the The Well Red Mage, I caught a share of Metal Gear Solids ending song. “The Best is Yet to Come.” Which is essentially my life motto. No matter what, I feel life can be harsh, happy, tough, confusing. Most of all its precious, because “the best is yet to come”, and life has sweeter memories to give us.
Even in our darkest days it can get better.
In an inspiration from his post, I’m sharing the EPIC Donna Burke, “Sins of the Father”. Which truly captures the whole vibe that MGSV was.
It was EPIC, yet bittersweet, due to Konami (the company that produced the game) and Hideout Kojima’s (the creator) mistreatment during the development of the game. Back when I finished this a year ago, I KNEW DEEP DOWN something was wrong with Konami. (Turned out I was right…which you can read HERE.)
Anyways enjoy the song!
This was taken about a week ago and she stayed home for a sick day. Around lunch time she was a 100% better so, I figured we’d play something different than My Little Pony or Shopkins.
A great laugh for everyone!
Louie and I were sitting and watching a few vids on Youtube and we saw this and I HAD to share it! Moms and dads totally get this and will have a great trip down memory lane watching our kids dancing at those tender toddler ages. Those memories are pretty irreplacable!
A few days ago, Gene Wilder passed away and I was watching a feature on 20/20 or one of those evening shows. While they were showing clips of his best performances, one clip really stuck in my head. It was a clip taken during an interview with Wilder.
“Ya know, I’m not really funny in real life, I’m actually pretty boring. Most of my jokes in person come off as cheesy. A lot of times, people will run into me and say, ‘Hey! Let’s hear one!’, and I can’t.”
It struck me hard! I’m that way too!
At work, I’m usually known as the guy, whose “crazy” and “funny guy”, always the guy who says “funny shit” or you’ll “just never know what he’ll say” type of person.
Which I’ll admit, my responses at work are quick and witty and make people laugh or shake their head with a smile on their face. But my biggest critic is the one I love the most…Louie!
At home, my wife more or less has known me to have little success with my jokes, it’s usually her giving me a silent big thumbs down or a funny “booooooo!” response.
Thought that would be funny to share with you, RIP Gene Wilder, you will be missed!
