PCHS 10 year reunion, a weekend I will never forget...

I arrived in Utah safe and sound on Thursday August 21st. The only problem was I had a little tickle in the back of my throat. At first I really wasn't that concerned, seeing that I got up at 5:30 am to catch my 6:30 flight out of Burbank. But after I had been in Salt Lake City for a few hours, I really started to feel off. I had the shakes, very similar to the kind one gets after drinking too much coffee/cola. I still didn't think that much about it. I thought maybe it was my body acclimating to Utah's high elevation. It wasn't until later that night that I realized those symptoms were just the simple beginnings of what was going to be a long, painful weekend. By 9:00 I was lying in bed with a hellish fever, temperature of 101.7 degrees.

Now, I share this fact to help everyone understand just how perfect the timing of this illness was. For starters it has been months, maybe even longer than 1 year, since I had last been so sick. And here I was in Utah for 4 days to see and party with all my old high school friends and acquaintances, only I was too sick to move let alone talk. So thank you, mother nature, for spoiling what was supposed to be a wild weekend of old friends and crazy fun.

Fortunately the reunion wasn't until Saturday night, which gave me two and a half days to rest up and be in good enough form to make my grand arrival to the class of 1998's 10 year party. Although I wasn't at 100% and still had a mild fever, I did my darnedest to enjoy myself and be social. It was a lot of fun to see all the familiar faces. It was weird and neat at the same time to be around all the grown up Park City Miners. For the most part, everyone (that showed) looked exactly the same as they did on graduation day, save a few receding hairlines, beer bellies, and extra curves. The changes that I had been warned about from others who had attended previous high school reunions were not as apparent in my class. So I must say that my hat is off to my class for maintaining their health and sharpish good looks. Hell, even my buddy Lee who we called "Fats" for obvious reasons, had shed so much weight that nickname need not apply any longer. So despite my taxing illness, well damn, BECAUSE OF my sickness, this 10 year reunion weekend has been a memory that I will surly NEVER forget. Below are some pictures from The Lodge at Stillwater, where my precious get together was held...

*Thanks Matt Lyle for picking up after our class prez and putting great occasion together for us.

GTA: What would it be like to live in Liberty City?

This is pretty funny. If we lived in the Grand Theft Auto world, this would be likely to happen at any second.

Tiddy Bear brings tiddy relief!

I thought this was a joke, but apparently it is for real!

Now, if you need to relieve the pressure on your "Tiddies" go to their website and pick one up today. Act fast, because I hear these bears rushing out of the warehouse, most on their own will.

Time flys by when you are keeping busy!

Man I tell you, I can't believe it's been so long since I donned the cap and gown as a high school graduate. 10 years to be exact, that's right a WHOLE decade! You may remember I mentioned a few months ago that I have my 10 year high school reunion this year, it is in fact this upcoming weekend. I am very anxious and curious to meet and see all my old classmates and how they all turned out. Fat, thin, hairy, bald or with kids, it is going to be a lot of fun to see Park City High School Class of 1998 again. I will be sure to post pictures of this weekend's blessed event! GO MINERS!!

Another Milestone for my Youtube Video...

It was just under one year ago that we posted our short homage video to the 1980s scifi/action movie Predator, and we have reached yet another milestone, 40, 000+ views on Youtube. Ever since posting "A Tribute to the Handshake in Predator..." it has been getting rave reviews. Below I have compiled some of the BEST comments left on the video's Youtube page. See for yourself...

"This is the funniest video I've ever seen in my life." -Subdado

"prob the best video on youtube!! what a tribute to the best handshake ever." -matt42b3

I watch this at least once a day - it's f@#king hilarious!" -thebryman

"I'll say it again, this is simply the greatest scene recreation ever made." -23house23

"i normally hate these take offs but THAT WAS F@##KIN AWESOME!!! HAHAHAHAH funnnnnnnnnyyyyy sh%t! i was laughing for sooo long." -banksy711

"seemless!, for a moment there i thought the fat kid actually was Carl Weathers!" -thegottibrown

"This could be the best thing I have seen on you tube and in my life." -TheKradle

"i mean,making a movie called "A Tribute to The Handshake in Predator..." hahaha man ill give you 5 [stars] just for the title." -Kamelg

Me and my friend, Matt McGregor, came up with this idea while having an instant message conversation at work. We took one weekend and shot it, little did we know how well it would be accepted by everyone. It's been great and a lot of people have gotten a good laugh from it. So with no further ado, I give you my first semi-successful viral video:

If you liked this video as much as others have, PLEASE SHARE it with your friends. I would love to see the number keep climbing. Also check out our PULP FICTION TRIBUTE.

Triumph at Comicon...

I'm so glad Triumph the Insult Comic Dog wasn't around when I was perusing around at Comicon this year. This is hilarious...

And then there is the full length speech Triumph gave at the TV FUNHOUSE panel. Enjoy...
