My discussion post for Dr. Barriers class -


So, it took me a while to get around to this discussion page in my American Lit class, but who knew how much fun it can be talking about yourself. Anyway, give it a read folks.

"Welcome one, welcome all - meet Josh Pate, English major and writer from Sandy Springs, Georgia. He is an introspective fellow. He's tall and skinny and at one time he threw a mean curveball and batted .400, but that was about 50 pounds ago.

He hopes to land an internship at a publication of broadcasting network and make some moves to one day write for Rolling Stone. Josh thinks that would be just swell.

Before college, Josh didn't know what he wanted to study, but it was a couple of high school teachers that motivated him to pursue writing - since he thought and wrote a little unusually. Different. But, different can be good sometimes.

After he graduated from Mount Vernon Presbyterian School he picked up a part-time job with Aidells Sausage Company, doing demo's on the weekends. Now, he is the lead for an Atlanta Costco team and travels to several different Costcos a month, demonstrating the tasty deliciousness that is Aidells sausage and meatballs.

He still works. He still writes. He still goes to school - sometimes. Only joking, really, he goes to school. Or else he gets the belt.

Josh wants to learn how to scratch a record, so anyone looking for a heady writer-type musical mixer, give him a shout.

Well, it's been real talking to me, I hope to do some more ego driven third person exercises soon.

Yo Gabba Gabba (Adult-sized) Giveaway


Wow, I have a thing for finding obscure giveaways while aimlessly browsing the web, but here's one that most of you will not know about. Personally, I think it's pretty sick.

So, apparently, contestants have to send their entries to with the subject line "Yo Gabba Gabba is for Me Too". The contest goes like so -

Find where the song from this performance on Yo Gabba Gabba originally debuted (Happy Birthday - The Ting Tings.) Could be a movie, could be a show, could be a number of things, but there is one hint - Molly Ringwald is involved.

Yes, Molly Ringwald. So, the answer could be Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, or anything else here on her IMDb page.

So grab your VHS's, plug in those VCR's and any gather any other triple-letter acronym type stuff you might need to find the answer to this puzzler and submit! I would if I knew the answer.

Oh, did I mention the grand prize has a retail value of 150$?
