I’m watching this special on Gary Marshall, which just got me to think about when I was younger living in The Bronx watching TV every night. I have said many times before that I LOVE TV–it practically raised me–in all defference to my Mom, I loved watching TV,\. She always made sure I had one, we had this 12″ black and whit TV we kept on one of these stools in the kitchen. It was set up there relatively permanently. The stool and TV could be moved with ease in case we were bringing groceries into the kitchen or something like that.
I remember watching all these Gary Marshall TV shows, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Mork and Mindy, later on he would go onto feature films, including Beaches and Pretty Woman. The special is a great look behind the scenes of how the man ticked. It’s amazing some of the stories you heard about certain scenes in shows. For instance Mork came about because Gary’s son got into Star Wars and was no longer that into Happy Days, Michael Eisner called Gary Marshall and asked him to build an entire show around Mork, which became Mork and Mindy. Robin Williams’ first big break, we all knew what a great actor he was, but this is were he started. Just think I started watching him there, then found his stand up comedy cassettes, then watched his movies, etc. But then it all ended when Robin Williams took his own life…very sad.
It’s amazing how TV brings back these memories, I can remember specific episodes, where I was, who I was with, what I was doing. Then I’m flooded with memoriws of the day or the week or the time. Life definitely was simpler then, go out and play, come home when my mother said to come home, eat, watch tv, go to sleep, and rinse and repeat, lol.
What’s even more amazing is that we are in the golden age of TV, I believe many people thought that was back in the 1960’s yes that was the Golden Age of TV part one, but now we are going thru a renaissance on TV. I love all the choices we have right now, there is constantly something to watch. I subscribe to Hule, Netflix, Disney), I had Sling TV but cancelled it–thought it was redundant with everything else. The crazy thing is even after spending all this money with all these platform the thing I watch the most is network TV, just amazing as segmented as TV has become network TV still makes the biggest impression on me.
What does any of this have to do with Real Estate–ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! LOL. These aresupposed to be my musing from the area, not just Real Estate!
