My Big Break | This American Life

deanxietized:

Linking to the segment of This American Life about the husband-and-wife comedy team who got their big break on Ed Sullivan … the same night as the Beatles’ American debut … and had to go on right before the Beatles’ encore performance.

Hey, it’s the anniversary of their debut, too!

"I love women who are bosses and who don’t constantly worry about what their employees think of them. I love women who don’t ask, “Is that OK?” after everything they say. I love when women are courageous in the face of unthinkable circumstances, like my mother when she was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. Or like Gabrielle Giffords writing editorials for the New York Times about the cowardice of Congress regarding gun laws and using phrases like “mark my words” like she is Clint Eastwood. How many women say stuff like that? I love mothers who teach their children that listening is often better than talking. I love obedient daughters who absorb everything—being perceptive can be more important than being expressive. I love women who love sex and realize that sexual experience doesn’t have to be the source of their art. I love women who love sex and can write about it in thoughtful, creative ways that don’t exploit them, as many other people will use sex to exploit them. I love women who know how to wear menswear."

"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?""Try your best to deal with life without medicating yourself.""You mean drugs?""I mean drugs, food, shopping, money, whatever. I ain’t judging anybody, either. I was hooked on heroin for years. But now I’ve learned that every feeling will pass if you give it time. And if you learn to deal with your feelings, they’ll pass by faster each time. So don’t rush to cover them up by medicating them. You’ve got to deal with them."

This is beautiful

Mark Wahlberg was a drunk trainwreck on tonight’s episode of Graham Norton and it was kind of a joy.
