Eric Idle

An envelope containing a “white, powdery” substance was delivered to the comedian’s home.
But they really want to cheer us up in this song-and-dance tweak of Monty Python's "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."
The comedy icon names the song he wants to be played at his own closing act.
The roar of laughter from the audience does reveal a truth we've all known since Monty Python hit the airwaves in England
"When you’re grinning like a lunatic, for people you don’t know..."
The FCC quotes AT&T, which claims we're making general facts that are not relevant. The sixth century Digest of Justinian
Millions, if not billions, of folks are unaware of the fact that Sal Cataldi has forged a presence in their collective and individual conscious by way of his decidedly eccentric career at the helm of Cataldi Public Relations wherein he and his staff have shaped several award winning guerilla marketing campaigns that defy convention.

It's important for me to fall in love with people while I'm interviewing them and writing about them, but there's usually a half-life. After a while, you barely remember them. Robin was different. He made me more vivid to myself, and you don't get that every day.

In the face of heavy opposition from the moneyed classes on either shore, both the United States and the United Kingdom are desperately in need of campaign finance reform. No joke.
"Heyyyyy, you made it!," Belushi says when he sees me standing up there. Sure did. Down I go. The Blues Bar is dimly lit, I can't see much.
Unless you're living in the Maldives and your island is sinking, it is difficult for subtle changes in weather to motivate people to modify their consumption habits or to vote in a way that may address the problem.
