I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Steve Martin: A little Ode, Fashioned

I put the comma there so you'd get it.

If you've never heard Steve's Comedy from the 70's, you owe it to yourself. This man filled arenas with tens of thousands of fans, and now he doesn't do standup any more. He unquestionably went out at the top of his game.

If he didn't seem like such a nice guy, you'd be envious of his wide talent. Author, actor, musician, comedian, meta-physicist; the list goes on. With his accomplishments he's earned the right to be a Jerk, but he's just this guy we know and love.

Now that decades have passed, new generations should discover his now 30-something year old works. Some treasure from the resting place of 'King Tut':

Stever Martin Quotes From Wikipedia
:
  • I like a woman with a head on her shoulders. I hate necks.
    • Comedy album A Wild and Crazy Guy

  • Now let's repeat the non-conformists' oath: I promise to be different! (audience repeats) I promise to be unique! (audience repeats) I promise not to repeat things other people say! (audience laughs, repeats) Good!
    • Comedy album A Wild and Crazy Guy

  • It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion, you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary...but, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics. I guess I wouldn't believe in anything any more if it weren't for my lucky astrology mood watch.

  • I used to smoke marijuana. But I'll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, midevening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning. . . But never at dusk! Never at dusk, I would never do that.

  • You know, a lot of people come to me and they say, "Steve, how can you be so !@#$ing funny?" There's a secret to it, it's no big deal. Before I go out, I put a slice of bologna in each of my shoes. So when I'm on stage, I feel funny.
    • Comedy album Let's Get Small
  • (Audience member): What's your mood watch say?
  • (Martin): Yeah, I remember when I had my first beer.
