Wednesday Assortment

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

A 90-year-old man went to the doctor for his annual checkup. His wife accompanied him. As soon as they got into the exam room, the doctor said, “I’m going to need a urine sample and a stool sample.”
The man was hard of hearing, so he looked at his wife and shouted, “What does he want?”
The wife shouted back, “He wants your underwear.”

MISSED-CAST

THE BRADY BUNCH
Gene Hackman almost got the part of Mike Brady. Producers cast Robert Reed instead—they didn’t think Hackman was well-known enough.

GILLIGAN’S ISLAND
Among the actors almost cast: Jayne Mansfield as Ginger, Dabney Coleman as the Professor, and Raquel Welch as Mary Ann.

THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW
Writer Carl Reiner originally sold this show about a TV comedy writer and his young wife as Head of the Family. Reiner’s choice for the lead role: Johnny Carson.

(This really makes me think about how different these shows might have been with these stars, plus how different the stars lives might have been if they'd been cast.)

A SHOW IS BORN

The Sopranos (1999–2007)

When he came up with an idea for a mob movie in 1995, David Chase was already a veteran of TV, having won a writing Emmy in 1979 for The Rockford Files. In his screenplay, he wanted to tell the story of his own New Jersey family and acquaintances as if they were mobsters. (Tony Soprano’s mother and psychiatrist, for example, are similar to Chase’s.) Chase’s agent told him that the story would work better as a TV show than it would as a movie, so Chase retooled it. None of the broadcast networks were interested in producing a mob drama, but HBO was. They loved the script and in 1997 commissioned a pilot, which they also loved, but then they put The Sopranos on hold for more than a year. When it finally premiered in January 1999, it was an instant sensation. The show received 21 Emmys and 5 Golden Globes over seven seasons. To date, it’s the most profitable series in the history of cable television.

Monday assortment

Monday, March 18, 2013

Mabel, an elderly woman, was about to turn into an open parking space when a young man in a brand-new red BMW cut around her and stole the space. Mabel was so angry that she rolled down her window and shouted, “I was just about to park there!”
The man looked at her with disdain and replied as he walked off, “Too bad. That’s what you can do when you’re young and fast.”
Annoyed, Mabel rammed her car straight into his BMW. The young man ran back to his car and shouted in a stunned voice, “What did you do that for?”
Mabel smiled and said, “That’s what you can do when you’re old and rich.”

Calories are tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.

Sweat is fat crying.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines! Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover! -Mark Twain

Watch your thoughts
They become words.

Watch your words
They become actions.

Watch your actions
They become habits.

Watch your habits
They become character.

Watch your character
It becomes your destiny.

Virtual insects programmed to crawl through a computer network in search of worms, viruses, and other malware (short for “malicious software”). If an ant detects a threat, it lays down a digital “scent” that attracts other ants. The resulting swarm signals human operators that there’s a problem.
