today is howard stern’s birthday, he’s 24

ive listened to howard stern almost every day for the last 20 years.

not sure what it’s done for me other than:

make me a better interviewer

make me less afraid of people of all walks

inspired me to seek out the unique beauty of conquerors, kings, and lesbians

reminded me that the more in tune you are with your true self, the more the audience will respond positively

it’s ok to yell the customer, your boss, your coworkers, your parents

(but if you do you could likely be fired, shunned, ridiculed, and make your mommy sad)

no matter how much money you make, no matter how popular you are, no matter how powerful you are, no matter how beautiful your wife is, and no matter how skinny you are, if that voice in your head tells you that you suck you are going to think that you suck and it will be very hard for you to enjoy your life – or anything. thus the goal of this short time on earth is to seek inner peace and ignore the trappings as they are a distraction.

feed your animals, your children and yourself on a schedule.

fuck george bush and fuck the fcc.
