Crystal eulogizes Robin Williams: "He was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy" A tearful Billy Crystal toasted his longtime friend Robin Williams during the Emmys to cap off the show's "In Memoriam" segment. "He made us laugh hard, every time you saw him on television, movies, nightclubs, arenas, hospitals, homeless shelters, for our troops overseas and even in a dying girl's living room," Crystal said of Williams in a carefully measured tribute. "The brilliance was astounding. The relentless energy was kind of thrilling. I used to think if I could just put a saddle on him and stay on for eight seconds, I was going to do okay."
Greg was totally blind and refused to believe it. When he was sent to a school to learn brail he threw a fit about how you shouldn’t make a seeing man learn a blind language. However, Greg, being the music lover that he was, had an acute ability to learn jingles or new songs on his guitar. He did this quite easily and did not forget them when he was done. Oliver and the staff at Williamsbridge would take
25 October 2011 “King Gimp” As I watched the documentary on Dan I encountered two feelings, amazed and happy. I never saw anything in all my twenty five years of living more touching than his story. It’s amazing to see a young man with this disability actually live a normal live and attend college and graduate. The thought of me finishing college seems unreal but to know that Dan can do it really makes me want to push myself in the hardest way because I don’t have any excuse as to why I can’t graduate just like Dan did. Watching his story made me so happy because he was a fighter and he didn’t give up.
All twelve of the best crews from all over the world perform today. This will be just like the preliminary rounds except this time, the stadium is packed with fans and spectators, and one crew will be crowned champion. Considering we come from Northern Virginia and being the unknown underdog of Worlds, we don’t have fans in Orlando. It is a scary feeling as we hear the fans cheer for their favorite crew. While we were backstage, the rumbling chants of the crowd cause the floor beneath me to shake.
I wasn’t able to be a regular 19 year old. I never got to experience what it was like to be totally carefree, with no one depending on me. Every decision I have made since the birth of my son in April of 1998 has been a decision I made with him in mind. I am now the ripe old age of 31, have three healthy children and am extremely blessed. My life hasn’t turned out the way I planned it long ago when I still had pigtails and played with Barbie dolls but Brendan and I have grown up together and learned from one another and because of this we have a special bond that I wouldn’t give up for the world.
I remember I laughed the hardest when everyone stopped because I thought it was really funny. When Mr. Cox noticed me, he got out of his chair, grabbed a huge, plastic tube and told me to come next to him. I did not know what was going on because he never did this to me before. Anyway, he grabbed the tube and wacked my leg a few times. Everyone was laughing about it, even me!
Vile sauntered on stage around 10:15 to kick off the set with “Blackberry Song” by himself before bringing out his band The Violators, with the added treat of Adam Granduciel from The War On Drugs thanks to a break in their own tour. Kurt kept quiet throughout most of the show, expressing his gratitude with quiet “thank you”‘s between a few songs. Unfortunately, this worked against him during a few lengthy tuning breaks between songs, which hurt the flow of the show a little bit. Awkward silences can only hurt so much though and are easily forgotten when you perform a set as good as
Ever since the first day I saw uncle Charley, I had a million thoughts about him, based on how he looked, on the things that he can do, and the things that he might have done already. He looked like a free- spirited person, with no care in the world, and that he always would put him self first, before anyone else, as if he always lived in the moment. It was almost terrifying just to be near my uncle, I feared him. But that was back then, in the old days, back then when I was young, and those children shows on T.V had me pretty much brain washed, and filled my head with stuff like, 'Respect your elders', 'listen to your parents' and ' Don't talk to strangers'. I guess the one that was the most influential on me me was the “Don't talk to strangers”, because of that must have been the reason I always tried to stay away from Uncle Charley, although he was my uncle, and your suppose to keep family close, I did not know that he was my uncle, I did not know this information yet.
Many people that Elvis’s early years drove him to be a success as to ensure that he would always care for his family. As a young man in high school his music teacher told him that he could not sing. She gave him a C in music. Elvis often said he was too shy to sing in school. He never received any other professional training in music but he always knew he wanted to sing.
