Lady and the Lamp
A masterpiece. John Lasseter made this when he was at CalArts in 1979. Truly a rare find, as I have not seen this ANYWHERE else, not even on Pixar "special" DVDs. John Lasseter's suttle story writing qualities are evident in this film about a human-like lamp that panics and accidentally gets drunk! Found this on an old Betamax tape, part of a Cinemax "short stop" time filler, likely recorded in 1985. Watch this, then compare to any of Lasseter's Pixar movies

Its astonishing that some people do not get this:
"Oh, for crying out loud.
The whole point of America is that you can burn the flag. Nothing sums up her greatness so succinctly. And it is precisely this – that in America you should be free to do any damn thing you please so long as it does not impinge on the rights of others – that leads most of us to abhor the idea of burning it in the first place.
And one thing you should absolutely be free to do in America is criticize your country and express outrage at its behavior – even if you’re wrong. We call that the Bill of Rights"

Minor League Baseball Manager Tantrum
The manager dived into second, pulled up the bag before throwing it into right field. By the time he got ejected, Mikulik was just warming up. He covered home plate with dirt and cleaned it with a water bottle, which he spiked on the plate. From the dugout, he threw bats onto the field.
“I don’t think I ever lost total control, though it may look like it,” Mikulik told the Asheville Citizen-Times. Mikulik was hit with a seven-day suspension and $1,000 fine by the South Atlantic League.
