• Curb Your Enthusiasm

    I’ve been watching Curb Your Enthusiasm in my spare time.  For me, humor is always on a scale.  Is it funnier or more different than what I have previously seen (i.e. is it better than Arrested Development or Chappelle’s Show?)  And then, there will just be comedy I enjoy for no good reason at all (i.e. The Lonely Island Boys.)  Well Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of those shows that’s in between, but still with very high entertainment value.  The show’s premise is Larry David, creator of Seinfeld, finding himself in varied predicaments that are usually the result of his own subtly narcissistic behavior.  His 2005 poster read, “Deep inside you know you’re him.”  I chuckled because it was sort of true.

    It reminds me of an episode in Season 1 where he visits a friend’s house and is told to take off his shoes before he enters.  As a matter of convenience, he leaves them on.  Suffice it to say, it ends up with him being viciously berated by his friend’s wife.

    But I totally can relate because I HATE taking off my shoes when entering someone’s house, and I’ve been to my fair share of Asian households where I’ve had to.  I don’t hate it because I’m an asshole, and I’ll always respect someone else’s house rules.  But seriously, no one’s floor is ever as clean as they think it is.  I always end up with black socks after taking off my shoes.  So I’m thinking, why am I taking off my shoes to keep other people’s carpets “clean?”  If it’s so clean, why am I getting black socks?  Why do I have to put my now-dirty socks into my clean shoes for the benefit of your dirty carpet? How about I just keep my shoes on, keep my socks clean, and maintain (not necessarily make worse) the level of “dirty” that you like to keep your carpet in?

    Also, the people who ask me to take off my shoes usually have house slippers on.  Go figure.

    Clean your floors people!

    ha! reminds me of the episode of SATC where carrie has to take her shoes off at a baby shower and her $500 manolos are stolen by another party guest.

    i live in nyc, land of filthy subway steps, so i request that everyone take their shoes off before coming into my apartment. but that’s only for small gatherings. for parties, it’s pretty obnoxious to ask 10+ people to pile their shoes by the door.

    Larry David is the man! For me, Curb Your Enthusiasm is up there with Arrested Development as one of the best TV shows ever.
