Happy Thanksgiving

From my face to yours...

Ok, ok. So this picture was photoshop'd. Those people weren't there before.

Kids. What do they know about life?

I went to my sister's fiance's family's house to watch The Room.

My sister Kelly and little Ashley (aka, Little Cindy Lou Who) think they're so cute, it makes you wanna throw up.


Amy is Ashley's mom. Don't they look alot alike?


Bizzo and his buddies, Josh and Kyle. There's something wrong with these stooges.

Disney's Pocahontas

Annie's ethnicity is ambiguous. The only thing that sucks is that this mask is her new accessory. Sorry, but this will never be a trend.

I've got my eye on you, Cat!

Dutches loves me, but she doesn't want me to know it. She's a friend indeed.

My little helpers

Dean Ward, fellow Indie Kid is representing Liverpool, UK with my mug. (yep, it's in Europe)

Thayna Alves, classmate in high school, is representing Brooklyn, NY with dumb face. Huzzah!

Ben Scarbro, buddy from RVR and "Federation Palace v. Wilson Hall" video will be representing in IL with cheesy smile.
(PS, here is the infamous video he put together)


If you live in an interesting area and think you can get people to do this, contact me.

Photoshop'd!

My sister's fiance Ryan is a riot. He posted this on facebook without even telling me. What's worse is that I didn't even realize this was THE face until about 7 seconds after trying to figure this out.

Approaching strangers

My roommate asked me to pick up a 9V battery from Rite Aid. Before I left, I decided it would be a good idea to grab a couple of masks and my camera just in case I ran into some potential strangers for the blog.

I walked in, grabbed the battery, a pack of fine-point Sharpies and "browsed" around the store keeping an eye out for people before I headed for the check-out counter. Nope. It's 10 PM on a Tuesday night. People look warn out from the day and even slightly pissed off. Oh, well.

As I approach the check-out counter, a smiling employee says, "how are you, tonight?" Hmmm. She actually seems friendly, yet ready for the day to end. Maybe asking her to pose with the mask would be a fun break from the monotonous day. After I make my purchase, right before I take my receipt, I make my move.

"Hey, I was wondering. I just started a silly blog involving people, friends and strangers alike, taking a picture with a cheesy mask of me. Would you be willing to do it for a few seconds?"
"Mmmm," she said reluctantly. "I don't think so. I'm wearing my uniform, so..."
"No problem, thanks anyway. Have a goodnight."

Ok, so it may (or may not) sound like a pretty regular thing with no need to feel awkward. Whatever. I feel so awkward and rejected. No one is at fault and I totally understand if people don't want to do it. For all I know, I came on a little strong...or maybe even too timid. I have no idea. Nevertheless, asking strangers is NOT easy at all.

The first stranger I ever approached for this was a cop. He was actually very friendly and wished me luck, but felt he needed to decline since he didn't want to besmirch the uniform. Legit. However, the employee at Rite Aid gave me the same reason. Did she not want to besmirch the Rite Aid uniform? Maybe she really has pride in her work and had the same exact motive as the cop. Maybe she was ashamed of her work and didn't want to be associated with it despite having a concealed face. I really don't know.

The point is asking strangers to do this is TOUGH! People who are in speech therapy for their stuttering are given a task requested by the speech pathologist where the stutterer "advertises" his stuttering on the Subway/Metro/public transit to get over his fear. While I'm sure what I'm doing is not nearly as stressful as what the stuttering person goes through with the advertising, it's certainly another form of leaving my comfort zone, and by golly, it's rough.

If you have any suggestions of places, strangers and approaches for the begining, I would love to hear your ideas!

The Three Caballeros

The only thing I hate about Grover is that he know more about indie music than I do. Damn you, G-money!


Francisco (aka, Chuck Polumbo) is sexier than the av-er-age bear! Also, he looks like such a Narc.


Precious moments with Fito (bear one) and Francisco (bear three) [bear two has been killed]

Client #9

Annie says "Hey sailor, why don't you come around and see me sometime."

Just a little tidbit, Annie's dad works at the same hotel where former Gov. Spitzer was caught.

GET OUT OF MY OFFICE!

"You're not welcome here, Gregory!"

Discussion with Sheri Barclay

So I just did short discussion with stuffed cabbage eating DJ, Sheri Barclay. When I called up, I thought I was immediately on the air, but after rambling like the schmuck that I am, she let me know to keep the discussion snappy and to have fun with it. My response: "Oh, I thought I was on the air."

I realize that with my voice and awkwardness, I'm either entertaining to listen to or painful. Being part nerd, I even crapily answered her questions either with other questions or with answers from previous questions.

It was fun and even got an email back from the happenin' DJ herself letting me know it was all good. Sheri, we love you.
Enjoy.

PS,
I want to mention that her unconventional show on CJSR Radio comes on at 11am - 1pm EST on Mon. and Wed. until December 10th. She's a hoot.

Sheri Barclay Live!

Yo!
I contacted a few cool people including Canadian-based Radio DJ Sheri Barclay. I will be on air around 5:30ish EST talking about this blog. If you miss it, I plan to get the audio archived and save it.

Click HERE for the website where you can listen.


FYI

It should be said that each mask gets a healthy dose of LYSOL® Disinfect.


LYSOL® -- Because can you really trust anyone?

Let's Snuggle

I had to get Biz to do it. He looks like a little monk.

How I loathe myself.

I actually took time out of my life to make these. Even worse, I'll be making more soon.

Dancin' Schmuck

Molly and Ryan S. helped. Daaaaaayyyumn, those moves are so dope!

Family Matters

My sister Kelly and her Fiance Ryan. This gives me a cliche idea.


Bizzo gettin' fresh to death.


...and even fresher.

Aye Poppy

Fatha' here is a teacher, professional hand-jiver and role model.

Molly McButter (aka Molly Twist)

Molly is my 18-year-old sister. She thinks this website is rubbish, but she supports me. That's the kind of person she is...one who thinks everything is rubbish.

H to the Bizzo

This is my 11-year-old brother, Bizzo. He is fearless, seriously.

Schmexy Frito-Lay

Fito. He's my friend/roommate/girlfriend's brother/bear/partner in crime/previous radio co-host


This isn't the first time my face has been so close to his *wink wink*

Pretzel fun time!

I was walking around my neighborhood and stopped by the Auntie Anne's Pretzels stand. I had to put this stranger up to it.


PS, funny story about this. When I asked her if she'd be willing to do this, she was a bit reluctant at first. "You're not gonna put this over a naked body and post it on ze internetz, are you?"

Office Halloween Party III

Part III

Jonathan wanted to make sure we knew who was in charge.


Actually, this has nothing to do with Halloween but it has everything to do with SNL sketches from the 70's.


This picture isn't fuzzy, you're just drunk.


People who chill with Luther in the lunch room are called Lutherans.


Nick's costume was "God's gift to women" but I still kind of think this was a ruse to wear jeans to work.


Paul is everyone's boss and a darn good sport.


When I saw Ray in his costume, I said "Oh cool, a centurian." He then corrected me making sure I knew he was actually a trojan. A raunchy joke followed shortly.


Tiffani was a baby for halloween, but for the rest of the year, she's ridonculous.

Office Halloween Party II

Part II

Maurico refused to cover up his entire head. He insisted that some of his head be present... narcissistic.



Joe was like "Hells yeah, I'll do it!"



Our receptionist Marie was the first to know about my scheme. Her response: "Dude... seriously."



Sergio got mad because he blinked and I refused to take another picture.



I asked her to be cool. Instead she did this. J/K, yo.





Part III coming soon...

Office Halloween Party I

Let's begin!

Laura was the first to volunteer. She was a Black Widow spider for the party.


My supervisor Pam was "Pam Noir" for Halloween. Is she Christ?


Glen, the master of programming and sweater vests.


When I asked Monica if she'd be willing to take a picture with my face, she rolled her eyes and said "Let's get this over with..."



Part II coming up...
