I have not decided yet if Steve martin is a genius or really an idiot. If he is a genius, a theory supported by a lot of evidence, I am a bit offended because he must think we are all idiots. Made a wonderful career out of it. If on the other hand he is really an idiot, than making it into a career is really genius. See my dilemma?
Boy, those French:
they have a different word for everything!
Some of his stuff makes me piss myself, while the other part make me just go , really? With a slightly disgusted air of disapproval and disappointment. Actually, now that I think about it, that is the lion share of his work. But then again, he did make a remarkable career out of his shenanigans, so maybe I am missing something. Probably. Because it is agreed that he is a genius. In the most idiotic sense of the word.
The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need! My name in print! That really makes somebody! Things are going to start happening to me now."
And that is the other strange contradiction about Steve Martin. The crowd loves his cheap tricks and moronic sense of humor, and the comedians love his subtle sense of irony and dramatic ability, they think he Is a fricking genius.
I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you set out to make art you're an idiot
So what is going on here? Is it just his schizophrenic nature? Is it a mutation that sprouted from a banjo player art collector and a buffoonish clown collision?
Don't have sex man. It leads to kissing and pretty soon you have to start talking to them.
I don’t know, I give up. the guy is not a mystery wrapped in an enigma. He has put the enigma and the mystery, with a spot of riddle in the blender, and then spread it all over his face and made the sounds of a wounded duck to make people cry.
Hello, this is Harris. I'm in right now, so you can talk to me personally. Please start talking at the sound of the beep "
Yeah, I better stop thinking about it. My brain starts heating up. I guess he is just one of those bizarre anomalies you find in nature, like the platypus, or the Bachman couple. Whatever you do, whatever, do not, I repeat, do not try to see Steve martin's magic routine without adult supervision as it is bound to have permanent damage, as Lewis black said : "I saw that and my teeth tried to reach around and eat my own brain, just to put me out of my misery."
I like a woman with a head on her shoulders. I hate necks.
And speaking of dentists, I cannot let you go to figure that Steve martin conundrum on your own before I mention the brilliant, genial (here there is no doubt) performance in 'little shop of horrors' as the sadistic dentist. Yes. Ok. Genius. And if that makes me an idiot? Eh.
I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy."
