Laughing Out Loud: Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman

Lightness of Being

It has been quite a while since I have watched an episode of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman with Louise Lasser. This show brought me back to Television. Stopped watching while I was in college. I heard about the show, so purchased an inexpensive 9″ TV and watched it every night at 11pm Monday thru Friday. Then the Superbowl and somehow it started to become a habit. Now we have Roku and Cable. I like to stream and Shawn likes both. I don’t mind cable if we DVR a show. Cannot take the sound of commercials. The irritation from them drives me nuts. Roku is quiet. The channels I watch are all ad free. Bless the internet for streaming, also.

The following videos are an assortment of humourous videos. Carol Burnett doing a take off of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. Followed by the first episode of season one and follow by the infamous scene that surprised a nation at the time of its first running. Next is a hysterical rendition of a voice mail message of someone witnessing the funniest accident scene. It is guaranteed to make you Laugh Out Loud. Jk the secret keeper ENJOY! Be Aware the clip Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman is not an episode light in nature but it is revealing. BE AWARE AT THE TIME IT WAS THE MOST TALKED ABOUT EPISODE OF MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN.

Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman Season 1 Episode 1
If you enjoy or remember Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman follow the link and find the next episode.

Norman Lear feels this episode of Mary Hartman Mary Hartman may contain the best performance in the history of television. It is an extremely intense episode. WARNING it may be upsetting. Norman Lear is right when he said it is the best performance on TV ever.

[On Internet 2005-I Found on Friend's FB Page]
Don’t mess with Bible-totin’ old ladies.
Read this little explanation and then listen
to the voice mail. You just have to laugh with
the guy. This is hilarious!!! The witness was
leaving the voice mail message, as he witnessed
an accident and went on to provide “play by play”
of the incident. This is the actual voice mail
message. It was passed along and forwarded
so many times it crashed the voice mail server.

Four Old Ladies

This video is what our house was like last year and we are about to have a repeat performance. Calming everyone down is a constant activity. The mom to be is very petite and carrying a large tummy. Her strayness does not give us any idea where and with whom she mated. We have a clean slate on what to expect and how many. The vet did an ultra sound but only two kitten heartbeats. Now that is fine with me if Lorca [LSD] Suzuki Darwin has only two. That would be a blessing. There is more of a chance we will be able to keep just two but any more, I don’t believe I would ever be able to convince Shawn it would be a good idea to keep them all. I am not even sure I think it is a good idea if more than two arrive.

Now we had a cat a long while back who had a litter of one. Garbo was a bit larger but not by much. I am talking about the size of a 5 month old kitten. So, we, me, in particular, are rooting for no more than two and one would be perfect.

Afraid her tummy is too large for just one. I am not that assured in the one kitty birth. Of course, Lorca has been eating quite a bit. We will see. The kittens, wee ones, should be arriving any moment or day now. Lorca is asleep on the stool foot rest just 6 feet away from me. There are four other cats in the room with me being so sound, I didn’t even know they were in the living room. The others must be getting warm someplace else. This is however, the warmest room in the house, at 64 F degrees. I have a heating pad and thinking seriously of reaching for a blanket.

Enjoy Simon’s Cat. The cartoons are the funniest new videos out there. :-) Jk the secret keeper

Simon’s Cat — Double Trouble

Be Assured as soon as Lorca has recovered from childbirth and her kittens are all weaned after a fair amount of time, Lorca will be spayed. Her hormones will settle down and so will our household. Why people feel they have to throw away an adorable animal like Lorca, I will never understand but people throw away millions every year. There are not enough homes for them all. That is why I believe the idea, Once you take an animal in they are yours for life.   Written by Jennifer Kiley

TELL ME A STORY

Comedian Joshua Walters, who’s bipolar, walks the line between mental illness and mental “skillness.” In this funny, thought-provoking talk, he asks: What’s the right balance between medicating craziness away and riding the manic edge of creativity and drive?

Joshua Walters: On Being Just Crazy Enough

Is there a definitive line that divides crazy from sane? With a hair-raising delivery, Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test, illuminates the gray areas between the two. (With live-mixed sound by Julian Treasure and animation by Evan Grant.)

Must story-make from this small creature ~
A single line with full stop feature,

Of excitement’s fevered rush!

Tiny soul, once was Latin ~exclamation-mark-vector-1058008
Io meant joy, was expression
Of wonderment, admiration
All manner of love’s elation.
So dear reader, you can see
Just how the ! came to be.

The ‘i,’ the line, the ‘o’, the dot
The ‘i’ on top, the ‘o’ was not
Considered as important so
Was subjugated, placed below
Or otherwise, would be a mess
if ‘o’ was first, I’d have to guessupside down exclamation
Just what was meant, by tiny mark
A lollipop? A man, a shark!

But no! It’s gentle, just dramatic
Emphatic! Ecstatic! Not dogmatic!
Often but a figure of fun ~
Once called, Bang! Shriek! Or gun!
A screamer, gasper, or a startler
Our attention’s what it’s…

“As I look out at all of you gathered here, I want to say that I don’t see a room full of Parisians in top hats and diamonds and silk dresses. I don’t see bankers and housewives and store clerks. No. I address you all tonight as you truly are: wizards, mermaids, travelers, adventurers, and magicians. You are the true dreamers.” ― Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret

“Flowers lead to books, which lead to thinking and not thinking and then more flowers and music, music. Then many more flowers and many more books.” ― Maira Kalman

“These paper boats of mine are meant to dance on the ripples of hours, and not reach any destination.” ― Rabindranath Tagore

“Do you know a better time than the present for igniting your dreams?” ― Carolyn Tody, Author and Artist, A Whimsical Holiday for Children

“Vital lives are about action. You can’t feel warmth unless you create it, can’t feel delight until you play,can’t know serendipity unless you risk.” ― Joan Erickson

“Sometimes serendipity is just intention unmasked.” ― Elizabeth Berg, The Year of Pleasures

“But in Friendship, being free of all that, we think we have chosen our peers. In reality, a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another, posting to different regiments, the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting—any of these chances might have kept us apart… — C.S. Lewis

“In the abstract, it might be tempting to imagine that irreducible complexity simply requires multiple simultaneous mutations – that evolution might be far chancier than we thought, but still possible. Such an appeal to brute luck can never be refuted… Luck is metaphysical speculation; scientific explanations invoke causes.” ― Michael J. Behe, Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution

QUOTATIONS on PARODY:

“Hey,” said Shadow. “Huginn or Muninn, or whoever you are.”
The bird turned, head tipped, suspiciously, on one side, and it stared at him with bright eyes.
“Say ‘Nevermore,’” said Shadow.
“Fuck you,” said the raven.”
― Neil Gaiman, American Gods

“Hell, if someone wrote a book about you, well, it’d sell a million copies the day it was released. And if someone else was clever enough to write a parody – you know, to provide some comic relief during these extremely difficult economic times – that would probably be an even bigger seller, or at least it should be. So, just come clean with me, Ed. Your secret’s safe with me, and whoever reads my internet blog. You…are…a…vampire!” ― Stephen Jenner, Twilite: A Parody

“[R]aging crime, class warfare, invasive immigrants, light morals, public misbehavior. Always we convince ourselves that the parade of unwelcome and despised is a new phenomenon, which is why the phrase “the good old days” has passed from cliché to self-parody.” ― Anna Quindlen, Imagined London: A Tour of the World’s Greatest Fictional City

“Most times, my mind is just an ongoing, present-tense, first-person monologue. It’s like I’m writing a novel, constantly, but only in my brain.” ― Andrew Shaffer

“How much truth is contained in something can be best determined by making it thoroughly laughable and then watching to see how much joking around it can take. For truth is a matter that can withstand mockery, that is freshened by any ironic gesture directed at it. Whatever cannot withstand satire is false.” ― Peter Sloterdijk, Critique Of Cynical Reason

“If smart people are parodying it, that’s a sure sign that some less smart people are believing it.” ― David Levithan, Every Day

QUOTATIONS on DESIRE:

“To crave and to have are as like as a thing and its shadow. For when does a berry break upon the tongue as sweetly as when one longs to taste it, and when is the taste refracted into so many hues and savors of ripeness and earth, and when do our senses know any thing so utterly as when we lack it? And here again is a foreshadowing — the world will be made whole. For to wish for a hand on one’s hair is all but to feel it. So whatever we may lose, very craving gives it back to us again.” ― Marilynne Robinson, Housekeeping

“To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.” ― Federico García Lorca, Blood Wedding and Yerma

“I want her to melt into me, like butter on toast. I want to absorb her and walk around for the rest of my days with her encased in my skin. — I want.” ― Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants

“Profound desire, true desire is the desire to be close to someone.” ― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes

“But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise on your lips.”
― Kahlil Gibran

“Ultimately, it is the desire, not the desired, that we love.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

“Desire makes life happen. Makes it matter. Makes everything worth it. Desire is life. Hunger to see the next sunrise or sunset, to touch the one you love, to try again. “Hell would be waking up and wanting nothing.” ― Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever

“Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire.” ― Roland Barthes

“I have outlasted all desire,
My dreams and I have grown apart;
My grief alone is left entire,
The gleamings of an empty heart.

The storms of ruthless dispensation
Have struck my flowery garland numb,
I live in lonely desolation
And wonder when my end will come.

Thus on a naked tree-limb, blasted
By tardy winter’s whistling chill,
A single leaf which has outlasted
Its season will be trembling still.”
― Alexander Pushkin

“There is no fulfillment that is not made sweeter for the prolonging of desire”
― Jacqueline Carey, Kushiel’s Dart

“Please, touch me, I pray.” ― Jess C. Scott, The Intern

“Oh to have you with me, to have you here, not to be alone, but to be with you, my beauty, you of all souls! You.” ― Anne Rice, Pandora

“I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.” ― Jeanette Winterson

“….love and desire enjoy a symbiotic relationship, meaning that one cannot exist without the other. Desire is an enemy to contentment; desire is illness, a feverish brain. Who can be considered healthy who wants? The very word want suggests a lack, an impoverishment, and that is what desire is: an impoverishment of the brain, a flaw, a mistake.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium

“When you were a wandering desire in the mist, I too was there, a wandering desire. Then we sought one another, and out of our eagerness dreams were born. And dreams were time limitless, and dreams were space without measure.” ― Kahlil Gibran

“Her cheeks were flushed. She caught hold of the Savage’s arm and pressed it, limp, against her side. He looked down at her for a moment, pale, pained, desiring, and ashamed of his desire. He was not worthy, not… Their eyes for a moment met. What treasures hers promised! A queen’s ransom of temperament. Hastily he looked away, disengaged his imprisoned arm. He was obscurely terrified lest she should cease to be something he could feel himself unworthy of.” ― Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

“To be desired is perhaps the closest anybody in this life can reach to feeling immortal.” ― John Berger

“Anxiety and desire are two, often conflicting, orientations to the unknown. Both are tilted toward the future. Desire implies a willingness, or a need, to engage this unknown, while anxiety suggests a fear of it. Desire takes one out of oneself, into the possibility or relationship, but it also takes one deeper into oneself. Anxiety turns one back on oneself, but only onto the self that is already known.” ― Mark Epstein, Open to Desire: Embracing a Lust for Life – Insights from Buddhism and Psychotherapy

“Because life is short. I feel we’re made of a hunger, a desire for life – if that can be described as a material. As I get older, I’m trying to open that channel more. If you don’t, if you close off desire and get complacent, life loses its freshness and sweetness, and that’s what I crave. That’s my bliss.” ― Sarah Slean

QUOTATIONS on MARIJUANA:

“Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.” ― Bob Marley

“When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.” ― Bob Marley

“‎Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda, smoking hemp and observing as far as my eye can see.” Thomas Jefferson

“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?” ― Bill Hicks

“We all need something to help us unwind at the end of the day. You might have a glass of wine, or a joint, or a big delicious blob of heroin to silence your silly brainbox of its witterings but there has to be some form of punctuation, or life just seems utterly relentless.” ― Russell Brand, My Booky Wook

“Federal and state laws (should) be changed to no longer make it a crime to possess marijuana for private use.” — Richard M. Nixon

QUOTATIONS on PURPOSE:

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life; it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” ― Mitsugi Saotome

“When you lost sight of your path, listen for the destination in your heart.” ― Katsura Hoshino

“The magic of purpose and of love in its purest form. Not televison love, with its glare and hollow and sequined glint; not sex and allure, all high shoes and high drama, everything both too small and in too much excess, but just love. Love like rain, like the smell of a tangerine, like a surprise found in your pocket.” ― Deb Caletti

“Those who have failed to work toward the truth have missed the purpose of living.” ― Gautama Buddha

“It’s funny. No matter how hard you try, you can’t close your heart forever. And the minute you open it up, you never know what’s going to come in. But when it does, you just have to go for it! Because if you don’t, there’s not point in being here.” ― Kirstie Alley

“Make your work to be in keeping with your purpose” ― Leonardo da Vinci

“In spite of where we were, how we had gotten here and why we had come, I felt that at this moment of our lives, this place was exactly where we belonged. We were not drifting but rising, rising toward something right and of significance.” ― Dean Koontz

“Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose to our lives.” ― Brené Brown

“There are so many stupid things that steal that purpose from us. The stupid things that you believe a lie that we ‘re not as important as we really are. That our life isn’t as important as it really is. It’s important to the people that you love, it’s important to the people that you will love in the future, it’s important to the world around you and it’s so important that you fulfill the purpose that only you can fulfill the way that you can fulfill that.” ― Lacey Mosley

“I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
from the beginning…to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth
and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time
that she spent alive on earth…
and now only those who loved her
know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own;
the cars….the house…the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard…
are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left.
(You could be at “dash midrange.”)

If we could just slow down enough
to consider what’s true and real,
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,
and more often wear a smile…
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy’s being read
with your life’s actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they
say about how you spend your dash?”

“Art has always been the raft onto which we climb to save our sanity. I don’t see a different purpose for it now.” ― Dorothea Tanning
