The Little Brother Dies In Radio Flyer
The ten comedies that make us -- and perhaps, only us at Short Ends and Leader -- laugh out loud. Guaranteed to differ from yours... probably... This is going to be a tough one. Humor, like musical taste or artistic appreciation, is always in the eye… and ear… and funny bone of the beholder.
Coppola In the same fashion as looking at old pictures of yourself and saying “I can’t believe that was me,” the same rings true when looking at pictures of celebrities. While we don’t literally know these people we have been following their careers over the years and despite not having personal relationships with them, we somehow feel bad when they do, and happy when they do.
