(When I was writing the serious post series, “The Meaning of Life, in twelve easy doses,” I thought: ‘Who am I to try to tell others?’ It seemed a little brazen. Well, it wasn’t the first time. So then, later, it occurred to me to have some fun with it and this is that product. Delivered in servings of three.)
Dose 1: “Do Do Do Do”
Yes, let’s try a little imagination. Sometimes ya just gotta feel that things could be better than this. So these days, if you want to try to understand some meaning that is real, you just have to get into a new “Zone“. Music by the great Bernard Herrmann, who did numerous scores for Alfred Hitchcock.
Dose 2: Life is a “Flying Circus”
Upon telling a friend I was writing a blog series called “The Meaning of Life, in a dozen easy doses.” He responded, “Everything I know about that came from Monty Python.” Thanks, Steve!
“Is mankind evolving or is it too late?”
Dose 3: The Stooges, “moydering the King’s English“
I try to write a few good sentences and turn a telling phrase, but my use of ‘scare quotes’ is out of control! And that is not to mention all the Bolding and Italicization. I had the idea that, In A Blog, that would help the reader. God knows, blog readers really Don’t Want To Read Much! Do they? I guess we need all the HELP we can get!
The Three Stooges: Above is “Moe” (Moses Horwitz) Howard and “Curly” (Jerome Horwitz) Howard. Later you will see “Larry” (Larry Fineberg) Fine. Three nice Jewish guys who started to do “slapstick” comedy on the Vaudeville circuit in 1922. They made 190 “shorts” (short films) for Columbia.
Please give the serious stuff a try. See, for example, “The Meaning of Life, in ten easy doses.” The real version. It’s on “The Menu”.
