Twitter Comes to Life

Went to a local gathering of marketing/web people that was put together by some twitter people and called it the #Pittweetup It was a pretty good time, made some good contacts and ate some damn good food.  One of my new Tweeps, Chris, has one of the coolest business cards ever. No design, only text but its on a thick piece of recycled paper which I think is awesome b/c I hate killing trees.

Anyway looking forward to the next ‘Tweetup’, let me know if you want to come on out.

Happy Birthday Scooglesbrewott

Brew-Halloween-2007Happy Birthday to my good buddy Scott (Scoogles or Brew to you). He’s growing up so fast, it seems like just yesterday he was baby but now he’s grown up into that 100% hard core gangster we all thought he could be.brew-hardcore

Happy Birthday Buddy!

*If anyone wants to come out with us tonight, let me know we’re gonna have a big time!

Baby Royal Rumble Round 1!

There has been a lot of talk about whose got the most kickass kid, but it has as much controversy surrounding as the BCS. So I propose we settle it on the field …..err… blog.

Please welcome our participants to the first ever:

Emerson “Book Worm” Belsky Bryce “Nap Masta” Brandow
Age: ~18 months old Age: 19 months old
From: Parts Unknown From: LBC (Lower Bottom Cary)
Reach: 10 inches Reach: 9 inches
Specialty: Biting, Pooping, PPC Specialty: Pooping, Keg Stands, Cartoons
Finishing Move: Boston Crab Figure 4 Leg Lock
Manager: Old Man Belsky Manager: Older Man Brandow


This proves to be a worthy battle as both fighters have studied the works of the great masters Koko B. Ware and Jimmy “SupaFly” Snuka and have extensive training by their managers who both specialize in the 12oz curls. But looking at the matchups here is what I see:

Age: With age comes wisdom, and experience but also comes achy bones and more diapers. Edge: Book Worm

Birthplace: Speculation has it that Book Worm Belsky has roots in southern cali and potential Southside Boston but we here at EKR have been told BWB has been spotted rolling in grocery carts in the Wake Forest area of NC. Edge: Nap Masta (Cary rules)

10 inches vs 9 inches, its all in the pedigree Edge Book Worm

while both have mastered the art of pooping we believe that the keg stands and cartoons are going to keep the Nap Masta loose and ready. Edge Nap Masta

Finishing Move
: We’ve never seen anyone escape from the Figure 4, but getting put in a Boston Crab by a female is just embarrassing: Push

both fighters come from a grade A pedigree (thanks to their moms) their managers’ style can be closely compared to Bobby “The Brain” Heenan and Jimmy “The Mouth of the South” Hart. Push

Well Folks, it looks like its too close to call so we will have to leave this one to an audience vote in the polls.

If that poll does not look right you may need to go here or View Poll here

I Hope My Friends are Better Parents than This

A study by contacted a poll of 100 parents and 100 high school kids and asked them questions to see how aware of their kid’s sexuality. I’m not sure if I am surprised or not about the lack of insight into their kid’s lives because parents these days seem to be letting their kids run wild these days and do what they want.

Some surprising stats from this poll:

  • only 25% of the parents think their high school kid has watched a porn movie – Attention Parents, there is this thing called the internet where 60% of the sites are Porn! Actual number 65%
  • 43% of parents think their kids have french kissed someone – Unless you are a clingon lover or this guy, by the time you are in high school you have french kissed someone. Actual number 84%
  • 64% of parents think their kid hasn’t masturbated. HA!
  • only 32% of parents think their kids have said they loved someone – umm ok, its high school, if you get a second date you are “in love”. Actual number 68%

I’d love to see this study done on the topics of drugs among high school students. I hope I am not this disconnected from my kids lives.
