From Hubcaps to Selling Raps

I wasn't the best salesmen, but I was far from the worst. In many respects, I was very successful. For a time, I was the number 1 Amalgam Separator salesmen on Long Island in late 2007.

My problem was: I wasn't willing to screw people over for my own gain. I gave too much when I should have been taking. I cared to much about other people instead of myself. A salesmen has to be ready to seek and destroy on command. Go for the jugular. I didn't have that killer instinct.

In 8 months, I got published in the Times of Smithtown, got a PT job at News 12 and Newsday part II, and today, December 22, I was published on my own page in Newsday (page B21). If you read it, it was a story about a 5th and 6th grade dance to raise money for the poor. It's not online yet, but I'll post it when the time comes.

I can't help but be proud of this and tell you guys how much it means to me. I hope 8 months from now, the life and times of Bob Doda will be even more exciting.

The McLovin's

I post (or sometimes lurk) the PT (Phantasy Tour) message boards pretty much every day just to see what the buzz is in music and pop culture. There are always interesting conversations and funny characters. Vets and newbs. Recently, a video was posted featuring a band called "The McLovin's." These are some 14-16 year old kids that are absolutely SICK. Rate and Comment.
