storytellers.

it could be because my new job requires me to spend a lot of time by myself, in a dark, cold, cubical in a corner where all i have is my iPod to keep me from going totally insane, but i’ve re-discovered my love of podcasts. specifically, being told a true story by the person who experienced it.

thanks to anthony, i’ve been exposed to the absolutely amazing the tobolowsky files. stephen tobolowsky is probably one of the most famous “that guy” and in less then a week i listened to all the episodes which can be downloaded for free via itunes. they’re fantastic stories, told by a man who i’ve come to think of as that kinda weird family friend who tells you about when he was your age. some of the tales are hilarious, others are heart-breaking, but all of them are very sincere and honest which makes you forget that he’s not talking to you specifically. which i think is pretty awesome.

and of course, there is this american life. i’ve listened to this show for a while now, but have just recently gotten back into it. ira glass could just read from the dictionary and i’d be totally captivated. there are some stories that are wayyy better than others but overall they do a great job. it can also be downloaded for free via itunes, and on their website you can buy old episodes for like 99 cents.

but i need more! do you guys have any suggestions? give them to me, plz.



know that you were loved.

you know that scene in me and you and everyone we know where the goldfish is on the roof of the car and then flies onto the trunk of the other? i had a moment like that today on my way home from work tonight. just a little less dramatic. or life changing.

i was on speedway and looked over at the phoenix shuttle van and noticed there was a large cup of iced coffee on the roof of the vehicle. we were approaching a red light and i was 100% sure that the coffee was gonna spill all over.

it didn’t.

i couldn’t stop watching this cup of coffee. i could see the liquid moving back and forth, but somehow managing not to tip over. at this point, i’m afraid that i’m going to get into an accident as my attention was totally focused on this magical plastic cup.

we’re approaching euclid and i see the van starting to get into the right-hand turn lane. this is it. this has to be the end of the coffee. i was 200% sure that this was where it was going to meet it’s end. but no! the van made the turn and the cup didn’t even seem affected by it!

i’m really impressed with the cups ability to stay totally intact throughout this whole ordeal, and will always wonder if it every fell over or made it to it’s final destination. i like to think it’ll make it. and ‘at least we’re all together on this.’
