I bump into some people who I went to high school with who’ve seen this site and they assume, for some reason foreign to me, that I am world famous. That Oprah wants to start her show back up just so she can interview me about five movies that know they are movies, or want to know my stance about hip hop artists who look silly wearing skinny jeans. Truth is, even with almost a million hits in two months since launch, nothing changes and no one gives a shit. That is the beauty of all this, I can write lists like that and pretend people do actually care or are curious. My life has been an insane ride. and I’ll probably die soon, so I felt it best to collect these stories. If nothing else, posthumously, someone might find this stuff entertaining. Anyone who thinks they are going to “make it” as a writer had best be prepared to pay their dues first. This is the five most insane (and sometimes most rewarding) ways I payed my dues.
