I like the comedic stylings of Ricky Gervais very much. It's the crazy British humor and his laugh which is huge. For awhile now he has been doing an Internet podcast with Stephen Merchant and an actual living caveman named Karl Pilkington.
Ricky and Stephen bring up topics and Karl responds in his unique style. Karl is an idiot but just might be an idiot 'savant'. The other two riff on Karl who doesn't seem the least bit aware that he is being made fun of. I would object if I wasn't laughing along with them. Karl just might be in on the big joke but I don't care. It's a good bit that like the Mel Brookes/Carl Reiner sketch, 'The 1000 Year Old Man'. is always a funny piece of improv.
HBO has animated their discussions and added funny little cartoons (I suspect just in case Americans can't get the jokes). I prefer it when it's just the three of them sitting around and talking.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
