The Lion King



From last night's Letterman.

I'm totally on board with this idea.

Adding: For those who saw last night's episode of Louie, a great description of the second half of it, from New York's Vulture section: "'Pamela' may be the least funny Louie in recent memory, but it’s also the most affecting; every one of us, at one point or another, has made the kind of desperately lovelorn pitch Louie throws at Pamela. But that’s the sort of plea you make when you’re young. Watching a middle-aged guy fall so hard for someone and realize it’ll never work, is a rarely seen, deeply felt kind of heartbreak." If you missed it and you don't have it DVRd, kick yourself.

Louie is a God of comedy.

I've been out of town, so I've got 2 or 3 eps to catch up on. That's one awesomely dark, real and hilarious mini-marathon, and I'm really looking forward to it.

Or, you know, torrent that shit.

I think Louis CK works for me because while he's kind of cynical and dark, there's also a hopeful streak to him, or at least a "it's ok, we're all just trying to make it work". That makes it more enjoyable to me than some of the comics who, while good at making fun of the world and being frustrated with it, cannot let it go ever. And all those comics end up dying young or really hard to watch as they age.

That's the problem with reincarnation: You can't remember your past life.

If he could remember that in a past life he was in a miserable marriage with her, they had a daughter, and a naked guy walked around their apartment sometimes, he'd totally be over her.

Although this scene was great:
