Writing About Yourself... A Lesson In Perspective.


Since I’ve been chosen to be a judge in an upcoming contest we are doing here at Froggy101, I was asked to write a bio of myself for the website as a promo tease… only to find out that writing your own bio is substantially tougher than it seems.

Try it, I’ll wait… take whatever writing instrument you favor and write about yourself, as a way to  inform others about your credentials for a job you’ve been assigned to do. IT’S TOUGH!
I mean I'm not Steven Tyler, or Randy Jackson for Gods sake, I'm Eric from Froggy who gets his picture taken with Scooby Doo and Sully, and on occasion "real stars" with real talent, so I knew I had my work cut out for me. I found myself trying to imagine what I would ask the morning DJ of a radio station if I were going to be judged by them... I took a few minutes to soul search through my past, and imagined what would be appropriate for a judge to have done, to have earned him enough street cred to validate him to the post of “talent judge”... I looked at other staff members bios (kinda like sitting next to the smart kid in class) so I could see what they’d written… in other words I blanked out, and was searching for any kind of inspiration.

After a long bout of writers block, and a brief conversation with God, inspiration came… here’s how my bio reads:

-Half of Froggy101s Wake Up Call, Eric was born and raised here in NEPA.
-A thirteen year veteran of the radio industry, he’s spent the past five years as a member of the Froggy staff!
-A former recording artist himself, Eric is currently working on plans to head back into the studio and begin work on a new project slated to be completed in late 2014.
-He is in general: handsome, talented, well versed in the culinary arts and architectural design, loves poetry, and plans to someday become an astronaut.

I think it reads well, don’t you?

Procrastinators hate the month of February

Procrastinators’ worst birthday:  to be born in the month of February.

 I even postpone procrastination.

I’m a February baby.  Every year during this month, I can’t wait to get my store loyalty gift cards – I earned them, baby!!!  And every year, it never fails:  I scramble THE LAST DAY of the month to redeem my treasures!  Uggh!!!  It’s not fair – January and March babies get 3 extra days to screw up!!!
 
Believe it or not, I actually did something ahead of time! My car inspection sticker expires at the end of March.  Don’t know what came over me, but I was proactive and took my car in on Feb 25th … nothing to brag about, but definitely worth a gold star for a procrastinator. I felt a sense of accomplishment … until I saw the new inspection expiration sticker: FEBRUARY, 2014.  DAMN IT!!!  Curse those 3 days we lose! 

…should have procrastinated into March – would have earned back those 3 days.  DRAT!

I've been Robbed!

Not too long ago, I was asked to create a team Jersey for a soccer team.  The team captain is a fan of WWE legend Bret the Hitman Hart, so I pitched the idea, The West Pittston Hitmen.  He loved it, and asked if I could put together a quick design for him.  I said sure, and whipped something together rather quickly.  

I posted the logo on the Froggy 101 Facebook fanpage about three months ago.  Well this morning, I was shocked to discover a T shirt company is selling a shirt that has a design strikingly similar to mine!  Below is the side by side comparison.  What do you think? Coincidence or Copycat?  If they did use my idea I wouldn't care, in fact I would be flattered!  Still going to buy the shirt.

The Zubaz Nation and I are strong!

Needless to say I was more than excited when I found out Zubaz was still in production.  For those of you whop have no clue what Zubaz is, let me fill you in.  Back in the mid 80's there was a Tag Team that went by the name, "The Legion of Doom" or "The Road Warriors."  These guys were massive!  They were giant power lifters, and they often had problems finding pants that fit, were comfortable to wear to the gym, and also matched the style of the 80's.  That's when they created Zubaz pants.  






















The Road Warriors rockin Zubaz. 
 
It wasn't long before other weight lifters took notice to these flashy pants, and before you knew it, Zubaz caught on with athletes everywhere.  The NFL was quick to jump on the pants, and players were using them to train in, and then celebrities jumped on the craze!

Even Will Smith Jumped in on the Zubaz Nation! 

Zubaz were the hot trend till the mid 90's.  Then they disappeared.  Those who still wore them, cherished their pairs.  Their comfortable flashy pants were becoming harder to find.  It wasn't till a few months ago, WWE superstars, Cm Punk and John Cena tweeted a picture of them rocking Zubaz pants!  Needless to say, I thought they just had a old pair, and were wearing them for nostalgia factor.  



























Punk and Cena bringing back Zubaz! 

It wasn't until I was listening to a podcast, that the hosts brought up Zubaz and discovered they were back and selling their product on their website.  Ecstatic, I reached out to Zubaz.  They wrote me back and to my shock, sent my a box of Zubaz products!  I quickly jumped into my Zubaz gear and was the focal point of the office...to say the least.  





























So who here rocked the Zubaz gear?  I know I did and will rock it now that it is back!  Hit me up at Crockett@froggy101.com if you rocked or rock the Zubaz!
