Life lessons w/ Seinfeld – Lesson 100

Lesson # 100:Β Don’t Get Ahead Of Yourself

In this instance, you don’t want to be like George. Had he accepted who he was and shown some humility, this may not have happened. If you’re short fat and bald, just be that. It’s you. Live your truth. There’s also nothing wrong with wanting to change, but the uppity attitude that came along with it is what lead to the end result. There’s no future in fronting. Ask Costanza’s toupee. Hov predicted this exactly. “They’re all actors, Looking at themselves in the mirror backwards. Can’t even face themselves.” He might’ve been subbing George all these years smh.

The Seinfeld Experience

This past weekend I missed out on a dream chance to actually walk through a recreated set (as part of a partnership with Hulu to celebrate the streaming of all 180 episodes) of Jerry’s Apartment. As a super fan you can see how this was disappointing. Sadly, even arriving with 3 hours to spare wasn’t enough as the line wrapped around 3 corners. Infact, they closed it down due to the insane amount of people.

Sigh.

That got me thinking, why not just create my own Seinfeld experience? The show IS based here in NYC. So for the rest of the summer, I’ll be hitting different parts of the city to recreate many of the famous scenes found in the show. To start things off, the obvious choice had to be Tom’s Restaurant. The owner, Tom, happened to be in a sharing mood and told some of the stories of when Jerry & Kramer would visit the famous spot many years ago. Even Obama once upon a time. Must’ve been my lucky day.


I’ll be updating this periodically with new photos, so you should probably check back soon.

Life lessons w/ Seinfeld – Lesson 98

Lesson #98: Leave on a high note.

The TV show itself followed this very important rule. It’s better to leave while you’re on top. Told a hilarious joke? Leave. Just made a stack at the casino? Get outta there. Managed to get her number without saying anything dumb? Time to go. Get while the gettin’s good.
