GeneralMusic, Comedy, Movies, My son, Traveling, BEER, BEER, BEER, BEER, Cuss words followed by beer, Baseball, skateboarding, blahblahblahblah.
MusicMusic saved me, so there's too many to mention. I listen to a lot of hip-hop, both old and new. I like Cee-Lo, MF DOOM, Kreators, Immortal Technique, Dead Prez, Cool Kids, The Coup, Gamer Life, Lifesavas, A Tribe Called Quest, Lost Boyz, Alkaholiks....blah blah. Mostly I listen to a lot of Rock N Roll now, both old and new. I like the Pony's, Black Lips, Ac/Dc, American Steel, Murder City Devlis, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Eyes and Ears, Stooges, New York Dolls, and on and on. Also some guilty pleasure that will remain nameless. Music saved me.
MoviesI love Westerns. Valstone, The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, High Plains Drifter, A Fist Full of Dollars, Hang Em' High, Unforgiven, Wyatt Earp. GANGSTER MOVIES: Goodfellas, Casino, Scarface, The Untouchables, Donnie Brasco, The Godfather, White Heat, A Bronx Tale, Gangs of New York...etc.... Harold and Maude, Gummo, Dancer in the Dark, Bad Santa, A Series of Unfortunate Events, ahhh boring again. I like lots of differenct movies.
BooksIshmael, My Ishmael, The Story of B, People's History of the United States, Affluenza....I tend to always start something, get halfway through, and then start something else. Too many to mention.
About me:I'm 30 years old, originally from Winthrop, Maine and I'm currently a stand-up comic residing in Denver. I'm part of a comedy collective known as Wrist Deep Productions. I have a 4 year old named Milo George. Having a kid is a lot more fun than I expected. I have a wonderful wife named Crystal who takes photos of people. I sing in a band called the 29th Street Disciples. I want to be famous, I won't lie. I'd like to have a career as big as Morgan Freeman but without all the freckles and shit on my face. I think most music sucks nowadays, most people could probably say the same for my band. That's why I do stand-up, it's one of the last art forms in which views can be expressed without having to pander or coddle to four or five other sissies who fear losing a shot at their "big break". I'll tell you what, big breaks don't happen anymore. Your big break can be found in any 7-11 or gas station bathroom weaved tightly between the toilet paper and the corn. You might as well just say what you'd like from now on... Love you.
"The entire night was solid, but closer Ben Roy presented perhaps the most compelling set. His unhinged, drunken persona was gloriously erratic, mixing Louis Black’s quivering indignation with Bill Hicks’ vitriol and David Cross’s unapologetic misanthropy. He even started his set by noting the environs, which he referred to as “the set from ‘Schindler’s List’ and ‘Saving Private Ryan’” before moving onto topics such as upper-decking (if you’ve heard of it, you can imagine how he used the folding chair), pregnancy tests and interacting with his mom while high." -Denver Post
"When local opener, Ben Roy, hit the stage, the clubgoers were wholly unprepared. To be fair, there’s not much anyone can do to prep an audience for Roy’s unrelenting energy and incessant swearing—he’s like a skinny, punk-rock Sam Kinison. But the comic achieved success by taking brief interludes from his maniacal performance to politely chat with the crowd. By the time he screamed his final joke, people were loose and ready for a healthy dose of that comedy they paid for." - Denver Decider
