The Producers, Mel Brooks, 1968.

Teddy was a batboy for the Reds game Thursday when he announced in bits and pieces that he wanted three things: 11 runs for the Reds, 11 strikeouts for the pitching staff — a local pizza company, LaRosa’s, gives fans a free pizza when the Reds whiff 11 batters, and Teddy loves that pizza — and a home run for Todd Frazier.
The Reds scored those 11 runs and recorded those 11 strikeouts. As for Frazier, this is what Teddy told him before his at-bat in the sixth inning: “Come on, hit me a home run, I love you.”
And this is what Frazier told Teddy: “I love you too. I’ll hit you one.”
I love you too.
That’s reason No. 1 why Todd Frazier is my favorite player. Not that he promised Teddy a home run, but because he told Teddy, “I love you too.” Ballplayer or not, who does that? What grown man tells another grown man that? My favorite player does.

The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

"It’s like a fish drowning in water. Except fish don’t drown in water. So if a fish was ever to drown in water that’s what it would sound like."

Smart. Funny. Perfect timing and delivery. Making a difference.

Gifted people, why must you make me feel so inferior!?

Is making extremely dated pop culture references that no one gets count as a special skill?

Because I don’t think you all realize how good I am at making those references. And it’s effortless. I’m like the Ernie Kovacs of dated metaphor.

Can “Eating Poorly” count as a special skill?

Because I don’t think you all realize how good I am at making bad dietary choices. And it’s effortless. I’m like the Michael Jordan of poor nutrition.

You know, Nat has naturally red hair.

And she likes the snow, but she loves the rain.

She likes to lay in bed on rainy mornings.

She has this spot on the back of her neck she likes me to rub.

And she particularly enjoys candle light.

And she likes to dance, but not when anyone is watching.

And when she is feeling tired and down, she likes to lay her head in my lap.

And she sings Russian songs, and I don’t understand them but I still love to listen.

From this = http://lettiebobettie.tumblr.com/post/23626326500/i-dont-think-its-really-spoilery-but-just-in

I have been working on it for a while… finally finished it up today. 

Now back to commissions!

Commission info hereee

This is so freakin’ AMAZING. Love every one of them.

Awesome work is awesome. I love when my fanboyishness exposes me to someone really talented who I never would have otherwise known existed.

I am unsure that I got all the subject/verb agreement right in that sentence.

Anyway, thanks for doing it again, tumblr!

I’ve died and gone to design heaven.
 
Architect Bart Prince dreamt up a fantastical house in Columbus, Ohio, distinguished by dynamic, flowing spaces. The owner describes the home as a place for big kids with, for instance, secret passageways hidden within the masonry walls. A 75-foot-long serpentine pool, lined with mirror-and-glass mosaics, winds its way along the lower level of the house. “The owner wanted a lap pool running through a tropical garden, with palm trees and bananas and views of the sky,” the architect says. “The living spaces are arranged around that.”

I’ve tried to keep the “my vacation was AWESOME” stuff to a minimum here, but if I can find appropriate things to post I’m going to!
Ray Wold’s “Burning Man” man act was maybe the most amazing part of the phenomenal Cirque Du Soleil show “O.” This site was originally named “Well, That’s Just Great” because in addition to snarky sarcasm I hoped to feature examples of true greatness that filled me with happiness.
This man is truly, jaw droppingly great.
