He's everything you want, he's everything you need. He's everything inside of you that you wish you could be. He says all the right things at exactly the right time, and he means something to you but you don't know why.

Last night saw the return of some old faces to Moe's, and a few weeks ago we had another wayward child make his way back from the dark depths of hell known as "Kansas." It really made me start thinking about the time I've spent here. It's been 2 years, 8 months. That's a pretty long time. I was 25, single, and unemployed. Now I'm about to turn 28, I've got a girl who tolerates me more often than not, and a pretty damn good job.

The people around me have changed, too. Mike and Stuart used to be fat, for example. Now they're not! Good for them. Also, Mike apparently has a beard now. For those of you that don't know Mike, he's one of the people playing last night that had a beard. Look through the pictures for options. He's also made the transition from Quizzer to Quizmaster, and is very nearly as much fun as no quiz at all!

The crowd's definitely changed, though. I don't see Jean Claude Van Darn as often as I used to, and there was a very long time where I didn't get to see Ben making ridiculous faces for the camera every week. Just The Tip came back for last night, but that's likely not going to be a recurring thing. But now we have much better quizzers - like Chase! He's my new favorite. He watches my dog when I'm gone, and she loves him better than me.

I'll always think of Jeanette at Moe's, though. Few of you remember her, but she's the finest quizmaster 530 Broadway has ever known. She left us to follow her dream, which is ridiculous. I don't know where she is now. Probably dead, or at least lying maimed in a gutter somewhere. I could probably ask, since I still talk to her most days, but that would ruin the mystery.

Thanks to all of you, except for Mike, for making Moe's an awesome place to quiz all this time! And for tolerating the new echo-ey sound system. I'm sure we'll get used to it soon.

He's everything you want, he's everything you need. He's everything inside of you that you wish you could be. He says all the right things at exactly the right time, and he means something to you but you don't know why.

I don't get the rampant fear of clowns. If you grew up next to John Wayne Gacy, that might be a reasonable explanation. But you didn't. At most, you watched It as a kid and that freaked you out. It was a moderately scary movie, but not THAT scary. What you should have been watching was Killer Clownz From Outer Space. Those damned things looked way freakier than Pennywise.

The only thing I was scared of after It was spiders. That's a real, legitimate fear. You can't see spiders coming. They could be anywhere, and they can seriously mess you up. Brown recluse spiders have a tendency to go for warm, moist places. Like the crotch of a sleeping person. Then you wake up, feel something crawling on you, and swat at it, only to get bit in an already sensitive area. Necrosis of the crotch is a valid fear. There's not going to be a clown sneaking up on my genitals. It's just not gonna happen.

Another common fear with relatively little foundation is sharks. Maybe you saw Jaws. Maybe you heard that Australia exists. Whatever it is, your fear is unfounded. The only sharks you need to fear are the super-smart ones from Deep Blue Sea, and Landsharks. They're tricky. Oh sure, they'll tell you they're just harmless dolphins, but that's a lie. And if you did't order something from Amazon, don't open the door for a random delivery - it's the landshark. But if you're just at the beach, taking a quick dip? No problem. You're not going to get eaten. I promise.

Franklin Roosevelt very famously said "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Well that's bullshit. We don't need to fear clowns or sharks, but spiders are still in the top 1000 causes of death for humans, and that deserves every bit of the totally rational terror they inspire in me.

99% of the time, dressing a man like a woman and calling it comedy turns out extremely unfunny. The Hot Chick. White Chicks. Nuns on the Run. Juwanna Mann. And, honestly, Mrs. Doubtfire. I've never figured out why people like that movie. It's not enough to just dress a man as a woman and call it good. There has to be something to it!

Look at The Birdcage. It wasn't funny because Nathan Lane was in drag - it was funny because he was absolutely brilliant as a diva. And Robin Williams was absolutely brilliant as the straight man. Well, not straight, but you get my meaning. His performance was spot on, and the few times where he DID go hyperactive (like the choreography scene) were made that much better by his restraint. The funny didn't come from a guy in a dress. It came from the perfect interplay between a total diva and her husband. That the diva was also a man was, well, not "incidental," but definitely not the core reason behind the hilarity.

Of course it won't escape notice that I've chosen Robin Williams movies here. Obviously his death is a tremendous loss to the world. He was a great entertainer, and from all accounts a great person. That he was sick and did not receive the help he needed is a tragedy, and I can only hope that this terrible incident will help raise awareness of how serious depression is in the long term. In the short term, we've all seen the posts (this is one, if you hadn't noticed), but it can't just be for as long as it takes us to get over his death. Depression won't go away, and people won't stop hitting the same problem.

And for Mr. Williams? Don't mourn his death. Celebrate his life! He was an entertainer to the core, and I can't for even a moment imagine that he ever wanted to cause pain to his fans. As John Cleese said in his eulogy for Graham Chapman:

Well, I feel that I should say, "Nonsense. Good riddance to him, the freeloading bastard! I hope he fries."   
And the reason I think I should say this is, he would never forgive me if I didn't, if I threw away this opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. Anything for him but mindless good taste

Go home and watch Aladdin. Watch Hook. Don't watch Patch Adams, because that shit's depressing, but watch Death To Smoochy (shut up, it's good!). He's gone, but his legacy is still here. He'll be entertaining me long into the future, and I can't help but feel that's the way he'd prefer it.
