I had some decent conversation with the Finkelstein brothers over the last couple days. Joel and I spoke last night, and Matthew and I spoke this morning. I’m going to give them access to post to this blog until I get their domain done. I’ve been working on their blog for a couple months, but actual work has been pushing it to the backburner for a while now. They’re itching to shout to the world, so I had better let them.
Matthew almost has me sold on dropping the $500 it’s going to take for me to go to Burning Man this year. Who saw that coming? Matthew also sent me a great link this morning – iRP. If you roleplay, and you have Sundays and Thursdays off, this is a good place to go. It’s run by a couple of folks who are famous for their good games in our hometown.
I’m aggressively recruiting salespeople for a variety of products this week. We’re beefing up our sales team for both companies. Both products tend to sell themselves, but we need to take everything to the next level, hence the big sales push. Enquire within (between $50–250 commission on one product per sale, and the other is a lifetime residual product).
In other news, scroll down and see the beauty which is Joel’s kid. Can’t get over that.
In other news, I’m generally not in the habit of quoting other people’s works word for word, but I got a LiquidGeneration newsletter in the mail today – it’s this newsletter that I somehow got subscribed to. I’ve never been to their site, but from what I can tell it has something to do with transexuals and flash design. At any rate, they send out funny emails, so I don’t make a big deal of it. All that to say, check out what was in my inbox this morning:
Hiya People! Monkey Here,
So, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are adopting an Ethiopian child! This got me wondering, “Would it be cool to be the love child of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?” One might automatically think “Yes” without a second thought, but let’s look at the facts here:
- You will never be as good looking as your parents.
Instead of people coming up to your parents and saying “What a cute child you have,” people will be coming up to you saying, “Son of a bitch! Your parents are frickin’ retarded hot! I’m not gay but I would have sex with your dad, that’s how retarded hot he is! I just glanced at your mom for like two seconds and I crapped my pants…she’s so hot I crapped my pants!”
- Your ex-girlfriends are going to suck compared to your dad’s.
Brad Pitt was engaged to Gwenyth Paltrow and married to Jennifer Aniston. They’re real nice looking. Your ex-girlfriends will probably be ugly and if they’re not it’s because they just want to meet your parents. Let’s be honest, It’s not very often that I see a bone-skinny Ethiopian with a distended stomach wearing a diaper walking down the street with a wicked hot girl. You neither? Exactly.
- Your dad was in Fight Club. You will be in the Chess Club.
Again, I don’t see many bone-skinny Ethiopian dudes with a distended stomach wearing a diaper being a football star. You will be a nerd. Good luck with chess.
- Your mom won an academy award at age 25. You will never win anything.
Chances are, when you get into your teens you will probably be so jaded by your parent’s universal celebrity, you will be a universal loser. Expect years of drug addiction and many failed attempts at rehab. Enjoy!
Great stuff. Jon and Matthew – your affiliate agreements are on their way.
