  1. No rituals? No initiation? Chinese brainwashing rocks!

  2. Letterman is so good at being the guy in control of the show, like Carson, and the other great ones, Letterman has full ownership of what he is doing.
    Watching the old Tonight Shows on youtube, I now get Ed McMahon in a way I did not as a child. Beyond the common memory we all share of who he was supposed to be, and our memories of the way comedians have described him, I see a different truth when I watch the shows now.

    I see Ed McMahon as the guy that you go on a business trip with that helps make the trip more interesting and more fun. Ed is the guy that gets to the hotel and says “hey, lets find the bar” and then you end up at a strip club with midgets and seals juggling snake eggs. Ed is the calm neighbor that seems a little bit more strange each time you talk with him.

    A lot of the new guys are focusing too much on trying, rather than being. Our modern world is too focused on surface details rather than being real. We are having a crisis of the shallow and superficial.

    On your elevator pitch for your VR,

    I am a lifelong fan of the dark ride, the dark ride is what you think of when you think of classic Walt Disney World experiences, Toads wild ride, Pirates of the Carribean, these 3d worlds that surround you with their theme, their music, and their stories. They allow you to sit back and ride through a story world as you look around and take in those world, It is the type of narrative that was once exclusive to theme parks because of the expense. I am creating dark rides for Virtual Reality. Nightstation will be the train station connecting all of these dark rides. The concept is highly flexible as the Nightstation is perfectly suited to connect to dark rides created by me or others. It can serve as a central station between dark ride VR experiences.

  3. These people were Christians, and masturbation is the ‘Sin of Onan’ and quite a mortal sin, hence the forbiddeness. Graham and Kellogg were simply helping their flock.
