"So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do" - Robin Williams didn't write this, but delivered it perfectly. He will be missed... very much.
I received this fan letter (email) recently: "Hello; I am writing to request a possible signed fan letter for my aunt who will be turning 95 on Aug. 15. She is a great fan of Mr. Tony Bennett and I believe this would make her day. The letter can be sent to me; and I will have it framed and present it to her at her party. Thank you very much. please let me know if this is possible. Sincerely; Gail" ...so I am sending this picture in reply (thanks to @jaimiemuehlhausen's digital talents) #dreamalittledreamofme
When I was young, turning your body above your board was called a "switch stance" for obvious reasons. Now it's called a "body varial" because people actually skate switch these days. I don't know what @theclintorous calls this, but we would have made up a terribly goofy name for it back in "The Day"
Some highlights of @greyson_fletcher @raventershy & @choadped from @theboardr's coverage of Van Doren Invitational finals last weekend. The judges were not allowed to score 540's, so Ben took a zero for his flagrant display of skill & rebellion... and I am proud of him for it. Full video on @ridechannel.
