Ravings of a Mad Man: vol. 3.13

Ravings of a Mad Man: vol. 3.13
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid then open it and remove all doubt
-Mark Twain
I don't forget many things, and the things that I do forget are not that important. However, I realized this morning that I forgot something of great importance, which I will never ever forget again. If you have not seen the movie Space Jam recently you should get a copy of it so you can enjoy all the great jokes and sports action it has to offer. Space Jam or SJ is single handedly the greatest sports movie to date. Now if they were to make a movie involving John Stockton, that by default would be the greatest sports movie ever made. I fear that this week's letter won't be as awesome as other weeks because this past week somebody gave me a compliment about how she enjoyed reading it. Now I am not saying that is bad because I love to hear how radical I am. In fact often times I look at myself in the mirror with sunglasses on or some other disguise and tell myself that I am a pretty radical guy. This in turn makes me less radical. This week is my birthday week. I am currently in the process of growing a birthday beard because I feel that a 25 year old should be able to grow a beard. Below is a picture of the progress and my new haircut! If I were to see my beard on the street I would rate it a 3 out of 10. This rating would be accompanied with a lot of sympathy for the grower. I would say, "Oh, sad young child why must you torture the world with your hideous facial hair?" I don't really know why I am growing a beard it just seemed like the right thing to do. I would like to thank those of you that have been supportive throughout this ordeal. Also along with my birthday is my birthday list. This will be listed after some more ranting and raving.
This week I really do have something to grip about. So there is this "hip" new paper that is being circulated on every street corner in downtown SLC. What a joke this paper is. It is free so I picked a copy up to get in the know. Come to find out all of the "articles" in the paper are only one to three paragraphs long. What a joke I read ever story of this 24 page paper in the time it took me to ride the train from the U of U stadium to the library. By that time I was angry. Since then I have been looking to see what I can do to try and get that paper to be better. I would like to be able to submit something to them showing them that if they want to reach a younger demographic they don't need to dumb down the news they need to present it in a way that is appealing to young people by giving us what we want. Don't they know that people that are around my age are all spoiled rotten because we grew up in awesome America? Anyway, take it for what it is but I do not recommend that you read this paper unless you are in a position that you need to have something to read that will only take about 10 minutes. i.e. activities behind closed doors!
Trivia Time: Fuzzy wuzzy wasn't fuzzy. Or was he? This week's question is why did the mock turtle call his lessons lessons? (Hint: this is from Alice in Wonerdland.) The prize is a S J collectors coin.
My Birthday List
· U of U hoodie
· Love for all mankind (This means I want somebody to make me love all mankind, not mankind the wrestler.)
· Mustache comb
· Birthday Beard
· Cobra Cai never die T-shirt.
· New Jeans
· Calendar of motorcycles for 2009.
· I could use some more sweet pants.
· Jerry Sloan to never play the following players ever again this season: Jaron Collins, and Jason Hart.
· A year supply of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (One box at a time please, this stuff goes bad.)
Have a good week I know I will.

Hey the beard is looking really good!!! Have you been getting my emails? Just curious because I haven't heard anything from you. You are probably just busy with school and growing that radical beard!!

Kind of reminds me of when Karl Malone grew his beard. Didn't quite fit. If you want to be really radical shave your head like Karl, too. Also, every time you miss a shot look at your hand like something hurts. I agree with never playing Hart again but Collins? C'mon. When we need someone to flop and draw a foul, who do we call on?
