I really just wanted an excuse to post this picture of Reynolds
That’s my good friend Joseph P. Reynolds. He’s graduated from his Live Journal and started a new blog called The Ski Bum Winter. Basically he’s back in Utah for a third straight winter and he’s writing about what it’s like to wait tables, get stoned and shred gnar…nice…I’m excited to see where he goes with this because to be quite honest if marketed to the right crowd this has book potential, that is if you like stories about wrapping your moms Christmas presents in Maxim covers, failing and succeeding with women and general self deprecation. He also got a job last winter writing about life in Park City by making fun of Mormons in his application. Sometimes I can’t believe it but I will always be proud to call this r-tard my one of my best friends.

In other news
Behold the power of Simmons…in one of his recent Page 2 columns BSG said that he all he wanted from his readers was for them to subscribe to his podcast on itunes. After about two weeks he’s in the top 25 most downloaded itunes. In fact today he’s at #14, just ahead of the Flight of the Concords podcast and trailing behind some free iphone ringtones podcast.
Speaking of ringtones…I can’t wait until we can all officially agree on the fact that ringtones are retarded. Are there any ringtones that you should be allowed to download if you are over the age of 18 (aside from the Super Mario Brothers theme of course)? No there are not. At some point having a song as your ringtone has to become embarrassing. Sure you can get away with it in high school and college but have fun at work when you forget to put your phone on vibrate and all of a sudden Katy Perry is serenading the office.
Not to be a complainer but I’m also growing tiresome of Facebook. Sure I like to be able to stay in touch with my friends and since I haven’t signed on to AIM in two years it has moments. But I don’t want anything to do with your applications. Awesome you scored 80% on a Disney movie quiz…I don’t give a shit, please let me creepily look at peoples profiles in peace. Oh and status updates are everything that is evil and wrong in this world. Oh it’s a Tuesday and you can’t wait to get out of work…no f’n way I can’t believe it, what an earth shattering revelation. I think from now on whenever I do any kind of links post I’m going to post the dumbest f’n Facebook status update I can find. Only the names will have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.
Today’s winner… Flower Child is “Nature is a language, can’t you read?”
I know there isn’t one human on the face of the earth that cares but I won my fantasy league with one of the worst lineups possible. But at least now the fantasy stats of Larry Fitzgerald will be going to Disney World.
Oh and Christmas rules because I finally got a Sox Pack, and yes I’m going to the Patriots Day game. Is there a cooler regular season game in all of sports than the Marathon Monday 10am start? Ok those outdoor hockey games are kind of sweet but I’m excited either way.
Now if you’ll excuse me there is a Band of Brothers Marathon today. Sorry I went to a DIII school and I don’t care about the non-BCS bowls.
