The movie Predator is what taught me to be a man. My dad cashed in his chips at the Above Ground Casino when I was 20 and I was left looking for role models to fill in. After reading The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding, I decided Arnold Schwarzenegger was

The awesome Dan Fields invited me onto his fantastically titled Save It For the Show program. We do a great hour on Don & Mike, Howard Stern, and how radio in general isn’t where it once was. We also talk about why I feel kinda weird being asked by Adam

Maybe I shouldn’t have said “ghetto Craigslist posts,” because that would suggest I had more than one item to share. But I was amused to find this post as I browsed Craigslist for discount Xbox 360 items. (Yes, I’m such an enemy of productivity that my time wasting centers around
