NPF: CREATIVITY

Four overtime playoff games in a single series – with the Blackhawks on the losing end of three of those so far – have made this week a late one and a rough one for me. For those of you expecting something in depth about the now-retired Space Shuttle, don't worry. It's a-comin'. But not today. Today we need something that will make us all feel better, and I nominate this 30 minute lecture by John Cleese on how to be creative. I'm sure a lot of you like to write, or paint, or play instruments, or build collages out of your discarded hair clippings, or whatever, and you understand the frustration of writer's block. Or maybe that isn't an issue but you just want to start improving the quality of your creative output. This should help – or at least entertain you on a long, pointless Friday.

It's fun, and almost as useful as his instructional video on how not to be seen:

Mrs. B.J. Smegma…

    Right before Election Day, it will be time to send this "Killer Joke" to Conservatives that you are related to, or know.

    When you receive another idiotic, racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, and/or homophobic, e-mail from one of them, send this as an attachment when you respond to it.

    Hopefully, they'll die laughing!

    The space shuttle flow above my school as I was walking down to my office building. The lady prof that thinks she is the wisest of us (ass) all claimed that the view from her office was the best.

    The shuttle with a history of glory and two terrible disasters that could have been prevented is now history. In September, one shuttle will be shuttled through the street of Los Angeles.

    One of the only achievements that made us standout in the world, the shuttle is now retired. Should we return Texas to Mexico?

    All this said because I don't watch sports and Monty Python doesn't make laugh.

    Cleese left one out.

    Q: How many New Yorkers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    A: None of your fuckin' business.

    Thank you for the Monty Python. I love John Cleese.

  5. JohnR Says:

    I met someone once who said Cleese made her break out in awful hives. I said "Even Wensleydale?"

    Thank you for posting this. Made my day.

    I love Cleese to distraction, but this did not cheer me up, as it might a Blackhawks fan. I have not been cheerful for decades at this time of year. I am a resident of Toronto.

    Thanks for trying anyway, Ed.

    "O come let us sit upon the ground/and tell sad stories of the death of Kings"
    …that traitor Fisher ought to be back with the Sens instead of holding Carrie's purse and water bottle.

    I just hope the Winter Classic will not be henceforth known as the Chokers' Bowl.

    Cleese can do all the horrifying commercials he wants – he'll still be one of my heroes. Much as their nerdy, obnoxious fanbase can never taint early Python.
