Today is the kind of day that makes me wonder if I will ever become a champion in the world of stand-up comedy. It’s a matter of motivation. I feel like I’m going to make it, because I’m putting pen to paper with no feelings of motivation whatsoever. I believe the true champions of any field manage to work whether they feel inspired or not. Granted, my ideas at this moment are garbage. I’m aware of that. Nevertheless, I’m plodding forth.
Here is a little quote from Rocky Balboa that is helpful for a day like today:
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
Every year the Cats/Griz game is a big deal to Montanans, and this year the MSU Bobcats pulled out a 21-16 victory. This is a pretty big deal, since the last MSU victories came in 2005, 2003, and 2002. Prior to that, MSU hasn’t gotten a victory since 1985. That means that U of M [...]
For the last couple months, I’ve been listening to right-wing blowhards spout off about what a bad idea socialized healthcare would be. I guess they love the idea of forking over money they’ll never see again to crooked insurance companies and paying for medicine that has been marked up 1000 times over. Most of these [...]
Comedy has brought me to Seattle. It’s a great city and I love to visit, but there are some things that get under my skin — no, it isn’t the weather.
There is none. There is absolutely no space in Seattle or any city I’ve been to, which is a gigantic pain in the ass. [...]
Call me crazy, but I think seat belt laws are ludicrous. Luckily, I live in Montana where the laws are as relaxed as can be. Montana has secondary seat belt laws, meaning a cop can’t pull you over for not wearing your seat belt — but if he catches you for some other automotive [...]
Last week, two bars exploded in Bozeman, MT. The only tragedy is that one person lost their life. Were it not for that, I’d say that the explosion was the best news I’ve heard in a long while. This probably sounds callous to most people, especially if you’re not from Montana. However, if you’ve spent [...]

I’ve got your back, Alex Rodriguez. You, and any other athlete (or American, for that matter), feel free to shoot up as much as you want. I don’t care. And — I don’t think there should be an asterisk by any of the records. Do all the steroids you want.
Steroids have become the scapegoat drug [...]
Once again, it’s time for parents and zealous goodniks to have the passionate conversation: Are there no more heroes in the world?! I guess he’s a hero, so much as one can be when your occupation is swimming. Personally, I find Aquaman to be a more suitable underwater hero. However, for a brief moment, Phelps [...]
