Sicker in the Head, Judd Apatow


I read his first book, so why not continue with the same premise, his continuation… and it’s another interesting reveal of people you think you know… but their stories are vastly more. That’s the gems right? That’s why I enjoy reading people’s stories, whoever they are. We all have a story that I guarantee interesting no matter who you are and what you do. All the interviews were personal and honest, more so than you’d think because at the time of the interviews we and they were all in this vulnerable, raw space of covid together. It’s hard to hold back in an interview when you’ve been pondering your life for the past few months. It’s like a glass of cloudy water; leave it there and it will settle. After moments of those thoughts… I can’t do this, I’m no good, all that stuff you’re thinking about- that doesn’t get in the way anymore. But it always does in the beginning. If you’re not obsessed it’s not going to happen. If you’re someone who just thinks show business is kind of cool, but there are a couple of other things you want to do, and you don’t want to stay late, you don’t want to work too hard, then it’s not going to happen. There are far more people less talented but who are obsessed about who will make it than people who are super talented but don’t have the patience to put in the time. Nathan Fielder interview – discussing high school and college with how he went in the opposite direction, where rather than trying to hide all his insecurities, he leaned into them more. He’d try to exude the confidence he didn’t have, and people would see him as how he was. He knew then that no one would have anything on him. You find yourself and drop your fears… the lesson that we’re all trying to learn in some way is that we’re okay.. part of the issue with human connection, especially face-to-face. Without ever saying what you’re really thinking, you’re always just playing a game, and you’re never able to really form a connection. Will Ferrell’s success in the beginning – life is a lottery, so why not try it, and have fun with it… if you fail, don’t worry about it, you can just try something else.”
