  1. Hello David
    As I said to Jay when he did this, it's interesting to read some things about your life and opinions, but this sort of Q & A is not something I would ever do – the answers to quite a few of the questions are in my blogs (including the fiction blog, because all fiction is autobiography, so they say!), but definitely not all in one place.
    I like the enthusiasm of the guys in the video, but, musically, it's not for me.

    Love & best wishes
    Sammy B


  2. I love #41! That would be a very different obit! HAHAHA
    I think #64 is going to work itself out.
    #88 is awesome! I know how you feel when that connection clicks.

    The song is OOOOOOK!

    Glad you liked it, thanks for sharing. And yeah, it was a bunch of work!

    Peace <3


  3. It's always nice to get a little insight into your mind. I'd have had some very similar answers. You should check out the missed connections section on craigslist sometime. They can be pretty funny.

    I remember the first time I heard 'Hot Cheetos and Takis' on 89.9 KMOJ, 'The People's Station'. Couldn't wait for it to be over. It's clever, but it gets annoying fast. And totally sticks in your head. I didn't know there was a video, so that was cool to see. Props to the kids for doing it. And I like the ref at the end.




  4. Dam DJ, It takes a while to read all that too, i can imagine how long it takes to fill it out. Don't think any one cares what i would say on one those so i don't think i waste my time. I would if you wanted me too but i would only send it to you. Everyone here already has an opinion of me so it don't mater what i put in it for them to read. They would disagree. I hate that song too. Tonight was the first time i ever seen it and i can't get it out my head now. I think Cheetos is going put me to sleep tonight. lol hugs Jeremy.
