just simply beautiful
wow. this is serious perfection…
Friendly reminder this show was filmed in front of a live studio audience in one take.
And that all sitcom laugh tracks are taken from this show because the laughter was so sincere.
friendly reminder that this show was fuckin awesome
And most of the people who were recorded laughing are dead now. When you hear people laughing in sitcoms today, it’s the recorded laughter of dead people.
Well that escalated quickly
I mean…I almost let this go…because who cares…but none of this is true. Though they did film in front of a live audience (many shows still do) and rarely did second takes, they didn’t shoot the whole episode in one take (which implies that there were no cuts (which, if you watch the show, there obviously were.))
Also, today’s sitcom laugh tracks don’t come from I Love Lucy, the kind of laughter those audiences had would feel completely out of place in a modern show. In fact, ‘I Love Lucy’ would even occasionally sweeten its own laughter with canned chuckles.
HOWEVER…the reminder that this show is fucking awesome is totally appreciated, because it is. Lucy is an inspiration to me as a creator and a businessperson. There’s a ton of episodes on YouTube if you’re in the mood.
Louis Wain (1860 – 1939) was a well-known artist who was famous for his anthropomorphic cartoons and paintings of cats. Wain suffered from schizophrenia and possibly Asperger’s syndrome. As his disease progressed, his art style began to change. Focusing more and more on patterns, Wain’s drawings of cats became more abstract and detailed. Eventually, before his death, Louis Wain largely expressed his artistic talents in a patterned psychedelic manner. Many modern psychologists now use Wain’s art as an example of the effect of schizophrenia on the mind; showing the artist’s descent into madness.
