Not sharing to Facebook because I don’t wanna hear it on the language. But I saw this on a car this weekend and not only agree with the sentiment, but also thought the combination of anger and compassion was clever. It made me smile.

There’s a piano in my house! I’m a little unfamiliar with the stuff, but I think this might be what “happy” feels like! And you best BELIEVE I used Instagram’s Kelvin filter for this!

My colleague/friend Josh drew this doodle, which now adorns my name-plate at the office. A couple people doodled things for me, but Josh is the one who correctly identified my favorite Doctor, so his stays. :)

There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. 

And now he’s died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

- Ade Edmondson

This is really the only tribute to Rik Mayall I wanted to read. Thanks, Ade.
