This is a little extra clip from Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” webseries. This clip was not in the original Show that aired with Howard Stern. Jerry and Howard discuss how transcendental meditation affected their life and work.

So many of my friends have posted this video on facebook. Twenty strangers kiss for the first time… I don’t know why, but I really really love this video. We all have to kiss much more. I am putting it on my To-Do-List for this week/month/year/ LIFE – Need to kiss more πŸ™‚

Watch this funny video portraying a misanthropic Buddha – so me πŸ™‚ Remember: wisdom of the day: Don’t take yourself too serious – I guess.

Marc Maron WTF Podcast Phil Stutz Interview

Here is a link to the interview that comedian Marc Maron had with psychiatrist and author Phil Stutz. This is a really unusual interview for Maron – they talk a lot about Phil Stutz’s book “The Tools” – a great read and I recommend it to anyone who just can’t stop reading self-help books.

The rest, enjoy πŸ™‚ And have A HAPPY NEW YEAR – which will hopefully not suck as much as this one πŸ™‚ just kidding – not!

Every ten years he is allowed out of the room and can say three words.Β After the first ten years the man is let out of the room and is taken to the Zen Master. The Master asks: “Do you have anything to say?” The man replies: “Bed too hard.” “OK”, says the Master, “we will see what we can do.”

Ten years later the man is let out of the room again and
