8 things you didn’t know about me

Sunday, June 17th, 2007

Well, it finally got to me. Several shows have been mentioning the 8 things you don’t know about me. Corby from the Twisted Pickle tagged me, so here it goes.

1. Before I moved to Japan, I thought the Chicagoland area was only the city and the northwestern suburbs. It was all I had ever been to. Man my view of where I lived was minute!

2. I can be extremely gullible. If a story sounds somewhat believable, I will most likely believe it. This has gotten me in to trouble a lot and made me look more and more like a dork.

3. When I went to a summer camp in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California, I saw a UFO. I was laying on a rock just looking at the stars and saw what I initially thought was a meteor enter the atmosphere. I looked away for a second then back at it, and it had stopped, and started heading back in the same direction it had just come from. It had multi-colored lights on the bottom that made an X on the bottom and then there were lights in the back that went in a partial arc. Maybe there are little green men out there.

4. As a kid, when I was asked what I wanted to do when I grew up, I would say, President of the United States, or a race car driver (I only knew of Indy Car at the time).

5. While driving from Milwaukee home in 1999, I was behind a van that slammed in to a semi. I pulled over and tried to get the people out of the van, with out any luck. I found out later that everyone (6 people, 4 of them kids) but the driver died as I tried to get them out. It still haunts me from time to time.

6. Before I went to college, I didn’t care much for sports. I would only follow teams if they were from Chicago and were in a championship run (Bears in 1985 and Bulls 1991). My big brother in my fraternity was a White Sox fan and he started the whole thing. Now I am an avid sports fan.

7. When I did a semester of college at Northern Illinois University, I would routinely drive home at over 100 mph. It was reckless, but the car I had at time time was extremely fast and it was built for that speed.

8. While I was not a great student, I have only failed two classes. One was Geometry that was taught by a crappy teacher who didn’t know how to help a student who just didn’t get what he was trying to teach, and the other was Calculus for Business. I just didn’t get calculus at all, that was truly me.

New Archive Page

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

I have gotten some messages lately that people couldn’t get show before episode 39. I have no clue why that happened, but it did. I was still getting downloads of those shows, so I just said the heck with it and created an Archived Shows Page. While I am trying to keep those shows in the feed, I also realized that some might have a problem, so here ya go. All the shows from 1-39.

Well except the infamous Episode 3. I am still working on re-releasing that after I have done a complete re-recording of it. It was that bad. If in the future you want to see those shows again, you can always use this link, or go to the Archived Shows link in the Pages section.

Can I go back to bed now?
