My Top 10 Most Influential Underwater Scenes: 10-6Ever since I started doing Off the Deep End, I suddenly seem to get asked one question more than any other: “What’s the deal with you and underwater scenes?” Well, I’ve always been endlessly fascinated by the contrast between land and water. If you think about it, water is like another dimension where everything is totally different to us, and we humans can’t breathe in it, stand up in it, or see clearly through it – yet it covers more than two-thirds of our home planet. I think it’s really interesting to see people try to carry on their everyday lives underwater, even though we have no business being there. I can see a lot of creative potential in that. Yes, it’s weird, but that weirdness is what draws me to it.My Top 10 Most Influential Underwater Scenes: 10-66 months ago in Personal

And where did this fascination come from? Well, thinking back to my childhood, of which I spent the vast majority glued to a TV screen, I’ve narrowed down ten of the most noteworthy scenes that flashed before my impressiona

Hey, way to go! You finally put together an "I Love the..." series for the 2000s that not only came out after the decade was over, but also highlights stuff people actually remember! I knew you could pull it off. (Definitely could use more Hal Sparks, though. And Michael Ian Black. And Mo Rocca, and Rachel Harris, and Godfrey... But I digress.)
Anyway, now that you're doing new "I Love the..."s again, wouldn't you agree it's high time you finally got around to making one last "I Love the '90s" miniseries? Even with the first one and "I Love the '90s: Part Deux", there's still about 200 or so events from the decade worthy of good-natured ribbing left to cover. Hell, "I Love the '80s" got three series, so why not this one?
I'll even save you some time. I've comprised a list of topics for your cadre of all-but-unknown comedians to discuss for each episode. Rest assured that I have thoroughly checked and double-checked both previous "I Love the '90s" series to ensure that none of

Probably some of you heard the recent news:
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, former president of South Africa, has passed away this past December 5th, 2013.
A person who really deserves to be remembered for all his efforts in order to unify a big nation destroyed by racism. A person, whose efforts allowed him to get a big recognition such as a Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. A person that somehow will leave a trace in this world.
OK, but believe it or not, this is not the reason of this journal. Of course, you know the other news about this "certain" guy who also died recently. Who else but the great Paul Walker, known for his great roles in the succesful saga "Fast and Furious". I still think it was tragedy, and may him rests in peace, but......wow, checking Facebook, Twitter and all other social media, it was ALL infested with NEWS about Walker's death. But if I check or ask some of my friend

April 21st, 1980. The 84th Boston Marathon took place, just to be remembered by one specific thing......Rosie Ruiz, a Cuban American woman gets first to the Finish Line, being declared the winner by an OUTSTANDING time of 2:31:56 (surprinsingly, WAY lower than her results to qualify for the Marathon, which was 2:56:29). A time enough to consider her the 3rd fastest female runner ever recorded.
Now, here is were the suspicion comes:
Non of the runners could recall seeing her during start line, nor photographers or monitors in checkpoints. Jackie Gareau, who was leading the race with 18 miles to go, as expected, could not recall seeing Ruiz passing her, nor Patti Lyons who was the 2nd place at the moment. Also, they noticed that she was not panting or coated in sweat as a real runner who had run such distance.....and, one of the fun
