Welcome to the inaugural “Theories for you to Disregard Completely,” my semi-daily random news and/or thoughts column. I want to get into more of a rhythm of writing more regularly, and doing it this way (the old country way) works best with my ADD, my schedule, and the simple fact that it’s easier this way because I can just scribble down whatever inane political views come to me during the day while I’m zoning out in the office fanaticizing a life that doesn’t as close resemble hell.
This week on the show we’ll be talking to Kurt Schlichter, Andrew Staroska, and Katie Hedrick. The FTR Radio will also be posting a special “Bring MMA in NY” show on the website this Friday featuring Steven Crowder and Assemblyman Dean Murray. After that, my main focus will be on the NY congressional races ahead of the primaries. I’m in the process of reaching out to a bunch of the candidates I like that you should, plus I’m working on George Pataki and have NYC councilman Eric Ulrich confirm.
On the blog, I was able to score review copies of Jonah Goldberg’s “The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas,” Nikki Haley’s “Can’t Is Not an Option: My American Story,” and Chael Sonnen’s “The Voice of Reason: A V.I.P. Pass to Enlightenment.” And by “able to score,” I mean I sent an e-mail to the publisher and they said “sure, whatever.” I’ll have reviews posted over the next week or so.
BlogConCLT this weekend was a blast! After these conferences I always like to take stock of where I am, where there’s room for growth/improvement, and proceed to step up my game. The main thing I have to work on is to talk to more people and work more on networking. I think the reason a lot of us get involved in the social media is because we are varying degrees of socially retarded in real life (or socially “started” as the pc Black Eyed Peas say), and while I have my group of friends I also talk to and love to connect with Fingers Malloy and Tom LaDuke whenever I can, I need to work more on getting out of my comfort zone. There were a lot of people I would have liked to have spoken to, or even just introduced myself to, but the anxiety took control. That, and bourbon.
The John Brodigan “Surreal American Hero” tour next rolls in to Virginia for Smart Girl Summit 2012. There might be the stop in June out west, but that is, how they say, DEVELOPING…
Your song of the day is “Get the Time” by H20.
I owe it to the people.
