Kicking...The Bucket List

There are few things I would like to do in my life; some of them sooner than later. I haven't fully figured them all out but but I have come up with a few that I am confident enough to write down and make official. I may be doing this wrong because I think some of these things may be unattainable and just wishful thinking but If I did them at some point in life I would be really happy. So feel free to help if you have any hook ups in any of these departments
In NO Particular Order:
Go Helicopter Snowboarding
Be on TMZ
Throw out a First Pitch at Fenway Park
Run for Public Political Office
Own and cook at my own little restaurant
Host a Radio show
Slap a grown man in the face
Visit Lake Como in Italy
Own a boat
Attend the Superbowl
Drive a race car at a proper track
Create an APP designed for Apple and Android
Ad Lift
I haven't ever had a list like this before so I can't say I have knocked anything off of it before. But I have to start somewhere and I think this is as good a place as any.
Your Thoughts? What's on your list?

Man Crushes

Man Crushes **Updated**

So I thought about it and made the decision to post this list because there was simply no good reason to NOT post it.
  1. Tom Brady.  I don’t know if I have to do much more explaining than just mentioning his name but I will.  He’s rich, famous, the best at what he does, he’s handsome, he has 3 rings and plays for my favorite football team, he has a supermodel wife, and he’s not flamboyant...maybe a little.  I like that he took less money for his football contract so the team could put better talent around him. He could have gotten $12 mil/year but took $10. Classy.
  2. Lenny Kravitz.  I don’t know what it is about this dude but every time I see him I think, this dude is as cool as they come.  I don’t really know much about him.  I like his music and from what I can tell he has maaaad style.  I saw him perform on VH1 Storytellers and he slayed it. Dude is just somehow the epitome of coolness. See? Who does that!?!  Plus I just saw him in The Hunger Games and I thought he did a mighty fine job and still had "cool" on lock down.
  3. Justin Timberlake. Singer, Actor, Comedian, Dancer. He’s the guy I am ashamed to like but admit to people that I am ashamed to like him.  I make no secrets of it.  Two things that did it for me, when he made fun of Ashton Kutcher on SNL and when I saw him accept an award for Prince at the Golden Globes.  I thought, I like this dude.  That was the beginning. Then he brought sexy back and I was like, CURSE YOU TIMBERLAKE!
  4. Barack Obama. I don't like this dude because of his politics by any means.  What makes this a man crush is how someone can so fully and completely fail at his job, make no sense in fiscal matters and somehow people are still all over him like he is the answer to all their problem.  If I had some of that ObamaSwag, think of what I could do with life.  I could be the worst father in the world and women would still want to have my babies. I could blow every save as a relief pitcher and still get paid Mariano Rivera money. If you think about it, what is not to love about this dude...besides his presidency? Vote for me instead! See what I'm about.
  5. Chris Carrabba - Creator and lead man for Dashboard Confessional.  For some reason this guy's music speaks to me and I play his songs more, significantly more than anyone else.  He's got this connection with his fans that runs super deep.  And I have seen him eye sex the ladies and I've watched as they literally melted. I have never seen another man with such a power. It is one I wish I possessed. 
  6. I have to add Jose Mourinho.  This dude is the best soccer coach in the world and has been for about 10 years now.  He has a huge ego but can back it up. He's a good looking dude, Portuguese, funny, family man and hopefully one day coach of the USA Men's National Team. There is also this hilarious parody of Jose as the self proclaimed "Special One"

Charity Case

This one time...at Church...

There was a canned food drive. The twist was that each ounce of food would get you 1 point of buying power.  People would donate services, clean your house, cook your dinner, ski lessons etc. to auction off for the food.  My contribution was to get slapped.  And Slapped I was!

I try not to LIE.

Here is some of the stuff I have been on recently.

John Allred's version of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.Allred is a local product of the Provo music scene. I dig his stuff.  He has a clean, sincere voice. @jallred on twitter.
Black Rob - Like Whoa This song gets me amped! Warning: Explicit Lyrics!

www.damnyouautocorrect.com - this site can make me cry on a good day.
http://failbook.failblog.org/ - funny facebook statuses.

@emochrisbosh - fake chris bosh account. has some funny ones.
@gselevator - things overheard in the Goldman Sachs elevators around the world. The level of conceit and arrogance is highly amusing.

Psych - USA Network on Wednesdays.  This series is on Netflix as well. I find it hilarious.
Community - Thursdays on NBC i think it is. Holy crap, it may be the best show on TV right now.

So there you have it. Get busy!
