Roger Ebert last words

updated 20100311 @1144:  not my fault if you cry, but here is a clip of Roger Ebert using for the first time the voice that a software company built from hours of his tapes.  

a must-read.

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.

  1. As a Chicago kid with a Sun-Times family (Sun-Times vs. Tribune was like Cubs vs. Sox), I grew up with him and Gene Siskel. Thanks for bringing me home to a good place, mar.

  2. Ebert is woefully under-appreciated as critic because of his exposure. The man knows his stuff. The link of 75 essential guy movies that goes with the interview is tremendous. I have the utmost respect for anyone who can find a place in their heart for both Citizen Kane and First Blood.
