  1. 1) Not quite sure. As I get older and a bit more insightful (or wise?) I can see the embarrassment for what it is…life, man.

    2) Keanu Reeves…duh.

    3) Applying one’s myopic rigidity of how life should be to others.

    4) I have been on a Book of Love kick lately. A somewhat obscure 80s band that their self-titled debut (1986) is quite good and insightful. Check out the tune “Boy”, very forward-thinking on gender equality.

    5) Chadwick Bosworth. Long live the King!

  2. 1) I’m ok with the choices I’ve made. They’re not all good but they are why I’m where I am. And as soon as I forget that “My Big Toe” always reminds me.

    2) Jon Stewart comes pretty close.

    3) Narcissism and lack of compassion for others.

    4) My Pandora station is Break of Reality radio. Really cool mostly instrumental stuff.

    5) Robin Williams. Often those that do the most to make others smile are broken and hurting on the inside but don’t know how to ask for help.
