Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham so I can hear Gilbert as Mr. Mxyzptlk one more time.

“Oh, Dark Mother, once again I suckle at your smoky teat.”
In ten years of very quotable television, James Michael Tyler delivered the single best line in all of Friends. Gunther deserved his own series.

“With Charlie, it was never about chops, it was about style. The Rolling Stones were smart enough to hire a jazz cat who would always put the roll in front of the rock, a guy who didn’t measure his worth by how many notes he played, whose ego was tempered by the primacy of his job: to put the song over, to make the band sound great. While others battled their drums, Charlie finessed his. He knew when to swing, he knew when to stomp. Charlie didn’t play drum solos, not because he wasn’t good enough to play them, but because he was good enough not to have to.”
Charles Robert Watts, 2 June 1941 – 24 August 2021
