Three on Roku

"The Collected Wisdom of Bill Murray"

Samples:

Acting

Whenever I think of the high salaries we are paid as film actors, I think it is for the travel, the time away, and any trouble you get into through being well known. It's not for the acting, that's for sure.

Failure

I made a lot of mistakes and realized I had to let them go. Don't think about your errors or failures, otherwise you'll never do a thing. 

Bonus: "50 Greatest 'Saturday Night Live' Sketches of All Time".

TV sports journalists apparently don't have to take American literature courses

At least this one didn't: "Is that a quote?"

(Deadspin's pseudo Hemingway, on the other hand, is pretty good.)

"A 'Price Is Right' Contestant Won A $150,000 Audi R8 And Went Totally Bananas"

Very nice and made me smile

But somebody should show the video when she finds out she's going to have to pay taxes on the market value of that car

"How Intel's Attempt To Revolutionize TV Ended Up A Disaster"

Even the best-run companies screw up every once in a while.

Earlier this year, Intel Corp rented temporary retail space in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago for a splashy launch of Intel TV, a new Internet entertainment service that the chipmaker promised could revolutionize the television industry. 

But when customers walk into those stores this holiday season, they will not find any set-top TV boxes or programming services for sale. Instead, they will see ultra thin laptops and new tablets from a variety of vendors that Intel hopes will help boost its massive but flagging computer chip business.
