“His prepared speech was about 15 minutes long, with the major theme of not letting stuttering define us or limit what we could be or do. As a person who stuttered well into his 20’s, he told us to resist letting others’ opinions or judgments of us be confused with who we really are. He implored us to focus on the fact that the speed with which we speak, or the number of interruptions in our utterances, does not have any bearing on the integrity of who we are, on the quality of our thoughts, ideas and intellects, and on our value as people. He told us it was vital to believe in ourselves, and to have other people believe in us and what we are capable of.”—(from nsastutter.org about Joe Biden, the next Vice President of the United States)
Maybe it’s just the cosmopolitan hepcats with whom I so often roll deep, but lately I have heard more than one person express their opinion that shorts, in general, are an immature and silly article of clothing.
My feelings about this phenomenon are quite clear. If it is a very hot summer day, I am going to wear shorts. If it is ever a hot summer day and I am wearing shorts and you are judging me for wearing shorts, silently or otherwise, I hope that you drown in the acrid grundle sweat pooling in your fashionable trousers.
My jewish boy-band/singing group “Six13” is performing two songs on the field at Shea before the Mets Game next Sunday August 24th. We’ll also be doing God Bless America during the 7th Inning Stretch. If you’re in town that day, I’d love it if you came. You can get tickets here
We should take the field around 1230, about 40 minutes before the 110pm game. We’ll be doing one of the songs on which I sing lead, so there should be ample Jumbotron Photo-ops.
I just got my first email regarding Ecommerce for Christmas Season 2008 (from my good friends at ChannelAdvisor). Wow! This stuff gets earlier every year. Luckily for BustedTees, Holiday Season Shopping on the web is guaranteed to break records yet again. Funny T-Shirts are recession proof!
