I’m Not a Fan of Scrambled Eggs. Unless…

Please say this is true. C’mon. Do it. It would be incredible!

Or, as a sophisticated French person eating caviar before attending the opera would say, “incroyable!” 

Some sitcoms just need to keep going.

In less than 24 hours, the painful reality of a live-action ‘Aladdin’ hitting the silver screen in a few months sans the late, incomparable Robin Williams was relieved–in the form of an appropriate mind game—with the news from Dr. Frasier Crane Kelsey Grammer regarding a ‘Frasier’ revival. And what’s encouraging is that it sounds like the original cast and possibly some original writers, with the exception of the late John Mahoney, may be on board to tell a genuinely exciting new chapter of the amazing NBC sitcom that ended in 2004.

We all want more of this.

And this.

“Wish me luck.”

These were the final words spoken on the ‘Frasier’ series finale. Hopefully, there will be another series finale in the future.

Upon hearing the news of a potential ‘Frasier’ revival from the man himself, we’re all wishing him and that small group of people luck on bringing ‘Frasier’ back on the air again.

The Wilder Side of Life

Gene Wilder died on August 29, 2016.

His death still hurts and remains tragic because of the comedic characters he played, most especially Willy Wonka on the silver screen. And what made his portrayal so memorable and beloved by millions of kids and adults alike is that he possessed a very real three-dimensional quality (and bizarre new dimensions that looked other-worldly in some scenes) that was projected through a wacky two-dimensional character written in a book and screenplay.

Like his famed–and sadly fictional chocolate an candy factory–there was always something more there. There was something genuine lingering above the circus-like atmosphere and quintessential ’70s sets.

Back in March 2007, Gene Wilder gave an interview about his life and career. Portions of this conversation were animated into a condensed video series for PBS Digital Studios called “Blank on Blank.”

The reason for posting this interview today of an actor who died in 2016 is the same as why we will spontaneously watch ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ that was released theatrically in 1971:

A random curiosity for wonder and reassurance of this thing in life called pure imagination.

Happy Monday!

There’s no wrong way to start the workweek.

Or is there?

It just might depend on who your boss is once you start those ‘Star Wars’ impressions…

Well, if you can pull off impressions like hilarious SNL alum Bill Hader, you’ll probably be fine. Most people won’t know who you are impersonating, but it’ll make everyone forget it’s Monday.

And isn’t that the point?

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

When Life Is Framed Correctly

Life is funny.

This is especially true when a comedian is involved.

However, there are the occasional wild moments in life that are completely unexpected that can forever change a particular experience of ours or the trajectory of a seemingly planned-out path. It can happen when we’re least expecting it. And that “it” can be practically anything.

Like an audition for the ages.

I’m guessing that camera assistant pulled off some pretty cool angles and zooms.
