Want to take a break and explore some mindless television? Feeling unconfident in your current talent base? If you’re having a particularly rough day or experiencing some low self-esteem, look no further than Sandra Lee’s cooking show, Semi-Homeade.
It’s always good to know a few things: one, schadenfreude is always relevant; two, someone will always be getting paid to do something ON TELEVISION that you do better; three, you can always top yourself in the crazy department. (Lady Gaga take note.)
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—Steve Jobs (via The Wall Street Journal)
