"I walk like a runway model, but I shake hands like a lumberjack."

Says David Rakoff — one of my 2 favorite audiobook writer-readers — to Dave Hill — a comedian I'd never heard of — at the end of this amusing 2-and-a-half minute video.

Here are 2 Rakoff books: "Half Empty" and "Don't Get Too Comfortable." I've linked to the Kindle version, but you'll see the link to the audiobook version, which I personally love (in part because I use audiobooks to fall asleep and Rakoff's voice is expressive but gentle, like that of my other favorite audiobook writer-reader, Bill Bryson).

Probably not a choice for him.

I liked the part with the doors best.

And he takes just like a man
And he aches just like a man
And he wakes just like a man
But he breaks like a little boy

wv: ranter: that's me.

I was glad to hear the comments about the "Jack-Ass" movies. I had similar thoughts.

We, too, like to listen to audio books in the car
and to fall asleep. The late Frank Mueller as reader is
one of the best, and his reading of Moby Dick is a real treasure. Herman Melville would be very satisfied.

So he's a lumberjack and he's OK,

He sleeps all night and he works all day.
