My heart ached. As constant as the waves of the sea slap the rocks, so the emptiness lurked. The icy hand of desperation wrapped me up and constricted. I was suffocating in that dismal abyss of loathsome sitcoms. I lamented but nobody heard, my pain had no companions.
"No! Why? Why? Why?" I cried. I dropped down on my knees and flailed my arms wildly. My lamentation sliced through the air like a blade through butter. "Worry not Michael, there is counseling available." my mom replied. "This is way beyond counseling mother!" I retorted. "Don't you realize that Seinfeld is going of the air? Seinfeld isn't coming back, and there's nothing anyone can do."
Mom tried to soothe me. "There's always other shows, maybe Veronica's Closet would appeal to you."
"Veronica's Closet! Veronica's Closet! I would rather be crushed in the gears of a combine than spend thirty minutes of my life viewing that sorry sitcom." I huffed. "There will never be another show like Seinfeld." I stomped off to wallow in my own self pity like a pig in warm mud.
There was no sleep in store for me that night. I was tormented by my own demons. I was agonized by the thought of blank Thursdays. Discomfort held hands with the black of night, and the black of night greeted me with a sour embrace.
The next morning, it was such a strenuous struggle to rise from my bed, I could have sworn I had been lying in quicksand all night. Walking in school was like swimming in a thick marsh. I had nothing to look forward to. Thursdays used to be the greatest day of the week, but now, all Thursdays held was gloom. That day, all I knew was despair, and it smothered me. This went on until I met up with a friend o...

...h each sinister laugh. As quickly as Jerry had appeared, he had vanished. He was gone. He left us locked in here for the rest of our lives.
"That was odd." Jesse stated firmly.
"Well, at least we still hold the uncut and unedited Seinfeld episodes." Ben pointed out.
"Boy am I glad at least for that." I told them. "Though most would consider this situation rather bleak and dismal, I see it as a blessing."
"On what grounds do you say that?" inquired Jesse. "It seems Mr. Seinfeld neglected to take his VCR along with him. Throw in a video Ben!" I proclaimed excitedly. "As long as the VCR is functional, and we can watch these episodes, we'll be okay." With that, our quest had concluded. Jesse, Ben, and I lived happily ever after in Jerry Seinfeld's apartment on the arcane island of Duergar. Gloomy Thursdays are nevermore. May the Seinfeld dream live forever.

- In the Outing Episode, the two main characters of the show, Jerry and George, are "outed" in the newspaper by a reporter even though they really aren't gay. The reporter incorrectly discovers that they are "gay" by means of a hoax, and then whenever Jerry and George try to deny it, their "stereotypical" actions convince the reporter again and again that they are gay. The episode plays on two standard gay stereotypes, first, how gay people act and what they look like, and two, the politically correct way to talk about gay people....

- Personal Narrative- My Dream I picture myself center stage in the most enormous and fantastically beautiful theater in the world. Its walls and ceilings are covered in impeccable Victorian paintings of angels in the sky. A single ray of light shines down upon my face, shining through the still, silent darkness, and all attention is on me and me alone. The theater is a packed house; however, my audience is not that of human beings, but rather the angels from the paintings on the walls come alive, sitting intently in the rows of plush seats....

- Gatsby; A Dream Come True. Murder, crime, carelessness, parties, and cheating wives- this is definitely not a making of an episode of the Desperate Housewives, but just one of a classic novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. A long time ago, in an American Tragedy, a Naturalist named Theodore Dreiser said, “what matter it if a man gaineth the whole world and loseth his own soul?” This quote simply means that a person pouring all your energy and life into worldly things like power, money, status symbols, etc....

- Dream a Little Dream My grandmother always said, “you cannot choose between life or death while sleeping”. When you are sleeping, your body practically doesn’t belong to you. Its almost as though you have no control over anything that might happen to you in your dreams, especially if it is something dangerous. When I ask people why this happens, they theorize that a powerful force or being has entrapped your body. You could end up dying in your dreams, thus leading to your death or illness in reality....

- Jerry Seinfield Sometimes a persons achievements can have an impact on an entire segment of an industry. In the book Jerry Seinfeld by Josh Levine this theory stands true.

Jerry Seinfeld was voted the America's Best Male Comedian Club Performer in 1988 by a pole of night club regulars, even thought by then he had already moved up to the large concert halls and amphitheaters for most of his performances....

- Seinfeld It was a warm September Thursday night in 1991. I was engaged in my favorite past time of "channel surfing" when a light appeared at the end of the tunnel. Displayed on my favorite, "20 inch friend", (also known as my usual Saturday night date), appeared a remarkable treasure. There before my eyes was a sitcom called Seinfeld. From that moment on I was astounded to find that not even great sitcom's such as my beloved Mash and I Love Lucy were as captivating or enthralling.... [tags: essays research papers]
