Barry - you crack me up! Robin posted this link of Comedians in Cars -
it's the one of Jerry Seinfeld and Alec Baldwin.  I remembered because I
do *love* coffee and I got a real contact high out of this one (smile).

 I particularly liked what he said in response to the inevitable
question
 about whether he'll ever go back to TV. I found it mind-boggling in
its
 honesty, its in-your-face-ness, and in its accuracy:

 THR: Is there a scenario where you'd go back to TV?

 Seinfeld: That's what I feel like I'm doing. Except television frankly
 feels small compared to the world I'm in now. I'm in Australia, I'm in
 Norway, I'm in the U.K. And I was from day one. I'm doing the smallest
 possible show on the biggest possible network. This all feels like
fresh
 air to me, and if you don't seek fresh air as an artist, I'm not quite
 sure what [you're doing].

 Suffice it to say I'm downloading all of the episodes of Comedians In
 Cars as I write this. Having read his ideas on comedy, and that the
 best of it is created in the moment, with no notes, I am mightily
 looking forward to what he created.

Emily,




Since it looks like Barry is currently in the middle of another Robin
eruption, I thought it might be helpful to follow up on an invitation
that Raja Ravi extended to us---to come up with a title for Barry's
autobiography. I hope my submission is not too late; I've been
preoccupied writing a press release for a revolutionary new product, the
wife invented---that reverses the aging process.




At the time of Raja Ravi's gracious invitation, Barry was tailgating
Stephen King (not as badly as he tailgated Elmore Leonard, whose 10
writing rules he posted---before he seems to have read them---and then
posted an 11th rule he made up himself to give himself cover after he
realized that Leonard's 10 made him look like a hack) and some of his
thoughts on first sentences; with that in mind, I thought I might offer
a title, soundtrack and first sentence; they're rough as I haven't
finished the press release yet, but---with your exceptional writing
skills, that never disappoint---I trust you implicitly to edit and
improve my humble offering before its submitted to the judges (Ravi).





Title:  *She was always on my mind*.

Suggested first sentence of Barry's autobiography:




Gravity became a kingly host, as my breathing fled my body for the last
time---and Judy's life began flashing before my eyes---slowly, truly,
like watching FIREFLY, for the tenth time---constantly rewinding my
favorite scenes, saying: 'to hell with plot development, I need a hat
like that', as I noticed---to my horror---and thought: 'no, this can't
be true, it just can't be, I'm sure its not---God wouldn't do this to
me; I know I behaved badly---like I was an eight year old, when I was
pushing 70---and, like Bubbles DeVere, pretended crowds of people had
complimented the first sentence of my *FREE* online book: Road Trip
Mind, when it was only Maya, just before she hit me up for 10
Euros---to buy some bitter liquorice; OMG, what did I do to deserve
this; that's definitely not Judy, it's, its---no it can't be---it's
Robin, and he's saying something: That's not., but I can't quite
make it out: That's not how., OMG, if I'd only listened to him
more carefully when I had the chance---what can he possibly be saying:
That's not how you write..., what was that, I need to relax more':
That's not how you write a 200 word sentence.

initialing this (ER) with my blessing.  I did find The 11 Steps on how
to write a Love Song - maybe Raja Ravi would consider this as an

practice run in this life with brotherly affection.

  Bob, just to clarify - that would be the fantasy of you as a
 comedian - not really a fantasy as I find you one of the funniest
 people ever to grace the halls of FFL.  Alright, moving on.

 I don't know why people have assumed that I'm down on Jerry
 Seinfeld.
I
 don't remember having said anything negative about him, other
 than
that
 his last hit was Seinfeld. And about the most negative thing
I
 can
 think of to say about Seinfeld (the series, which I loved at
 the
time)
 is that when I watch episodes of it these days, they're not
very
funny.
 They feel *dated*, as if the humor was present in the moment,
 but know
 that we're not in that moment, the humor isn't as present as
it
 once
 was.

 After having read this interview, I suspect that Jerry might
 agree

Not sure we could get anyone looking as good as Ann, but I've asked the
wife to earmark a full set of samples for you for when we reach Seattle;
this might be awhile as we're presently in Manhattan and like Sherman

just as well as we're still working out some bugs on the latest offer,

Oh dear Bob,

What is this about Raja Ravi's standards are very high? I can't be as
creative as you or that woman Obba, now Emily's got me thinking - should I
try writing a song. Gosh I love singing, playing harmonium/keyboard,
learning the goddamn guitar now but I have never written a song - should I?
May be for that little girl fantasizing on Amma?

I totally enjoyed your first line for Bubbles Barry's autobiography - the
judges think you are the most creative here on FFL so really there's not
much thought needed for that decision. Are you going to spoil me with posts
like this? Is that what your intention is :-). I'm already too wild and
untamed - you and Robin are the only two people who should be admonishing
and disciplining me periodically :-)

Anyway - love your posts, good to have you back here.

Ravi.
