Sometimes I enjoy and admire Ricky Gervais. Sometmes I wonder how he got into the room…and how soon he’ll find the way back out.
But what he wrote in the Huffington Post has put him back on the “plus” column for me just now. It’s about the weird modern goal of being “Famous”. …nothing else…just “Famous”, not famous for anything, except being “Famous”. That’s the subject of his next video series. I may actually have to watch this one, having been left un-involved by The Office and having only seen snippets of Extras (the Doctor Who parody was priceless, though).
His best quote from the whole article, for me, is this:
“Born clever? So what? What are you going to do with it? Your best, I hope, and no less.”
Here’s the link to the full piece. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ricky-gervais/on-fame_b_1253273.html
It’s worth your time…even if you can’t stand Ricky Gervais.
