weekend fun: steve martin is the great flydini

(Video link here.) Apparently, some readers were turned off by Louis C.K.’s vulgar, and to our minds perspective-inducing reflections on “what comes with a basic life”. Susan Dworski sent us this brilliant few minutes of Steve Martin as the Great Flydini as “an antidote”. Like all great magic, it appears to just happen— an improvision in the moment— although it is, in reality, the result of brilliant calculation and mastery.

Thanks a million, Susan!

    When I need a chuckle, I watch The Great Flydini and Robin Williams’ History of Golf. If you haven’t seen it, go to YouTube and look for the longest version. And, The Wedding Dance still makes me smile.
