    You will always have critics, but my bro's art is kind of out there.

    He is a regular contributor to PORT, Portland's art site.

    one time Bill Gates personally offered (over email) to pay me a TON of money if I would just forward said email!!! I could not believe how kind that was. I did not want to take advantage of him and his kindness, so I did not forward it. What a nice guy.

    My uncle played in the NFL for Kansas City for 8 years, during the early and mid 90's. I met Joe Mo, Marcus Allen as well as a few other guys. It was pretty cool, I was only 10 or 12 around the time and was actively playing football at the time so it was really cool. I always have him give his professional opinion of the any of the games we are watching, kinda like an insider view of the game.

    I got to shake Tricky D*cks (Richard Nixon):evil3: hand during a campaign stop in Portland, OR and then two weeks later Robert Kennedy's at his stop in Portland 1968. Drank more than a few brews with Portland's ex mayor Bud Clark when he still tended at his tavern. Had my picture on the front page of the Milwaukee, OR Review skateboarding Xmas morning 1969.
