Omro, WI (Wisconsin really… I’m sure you were thinking Omro - British Virgin Islands)
November 5th … Scorpio … What’s your sign?
Why I got into radio:
Women, Fame, Fortune …. Oh …wait !!! To live a nomadic lifestyle, living check to check, bartering CD’s, T-shirts and Xmas Bash Tickets for Food. Ahhhh … now that’s Rock n’ Roll. Or at least the end of a very bad “Behind the Music”episode.
Other jobs I’ve had:
Video Store Clerk, Dark Minion, Morning Radio DJ, Patsy, Comedic Foil, Comedy Club Manager, Oil Boy for Hawiian Tropic Bikini Team and Shepherd.
Aantidisestablishmentarianism, Conspiracy String Theory – wondering if Steven Hawking shot Kennedy from a UFO dressed as Bigfoot while altering the Zapruder film in the same studio they shot the FAKE Apollo 13 moon landing to cover his tread marks. And collecting junk food that looks like famous people. I have a pork rind that looks just like John Lennon and a Cheeto that resembles Jesus. Coincidence?
Horror Movies, Compulsive Disorders, Arranging anything I buy in a grocery store by Food Group, Creating playlists on my iPod (ex: “Songs to Play at My Funeral” and to “Shave By”), “List Shows” (ex) VH1’s “Top 100 Least Metal Moments” or Animal Planet’s “Top 50 Animal Attacks on News Anchors” (speaking of) Watching Fox 11 News to see how long it takes the female anchor to begin looking like Tom Milbourn.
Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis – the fear of inhaling a very fine dust (which is ALL OVER… by the way) into your lungs causing an almost incurable respiratory disease. Oh! And men who wear fur coats. *shiver*
I have a DVD collection numbering in the 700’s … Kinda’ hard to narrow it down. How ‘bout Comfort Films... Halloween(‘78), Star Wars(‘77), Clerks, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, American Psycho, anything Hitchcock…. Again 700 + DVDs … This could go on and on and ……

Whatever McNeal said for this … he’s the real expert.
