Lost Years (30)

video

Here's my skit for the 2003 CWSC. It was an awesome idea I had for t-shirt ideas for the conference that year. I have to be honest, nearly all of these carry one inside joke or another, but if you were there you'd get them.

The things that made this skit work is that I had one of the speakers, (Dr Ganz) come out at the very end and make fun of me. What everyone didn't know was that I had that planned the whole time and made it LOOK like an accident. So when I did my last joke and he came out, the crowd went nuts!

I remember he refused to do it at first thinking it wasn't going to be that funny, he almost backed out right before I went on stage!! Seriously, I was late getting up there after they'd called my name because I was doing some last minute smoozing, to get him to come out at the end.

Well he did and the crowd loved it. Even HE was surprised by the reception he received. The funny thing is.... the joke he did at the end wasn't the original joke I'd written. My first idea was for him to make fun of the fact I was a councilor that year by saying "when pigs fly"

But get this... being Canadian, he didn't even know what that meant! I was shocked he'd never heard the phrase before!! He thought it was a "southern thing" to say. Funny stuff!

Everyone will enjoy a young "puddy" today, as he shows that his love for pigs far exceeded what some of you folks thought!

Numero Uno once again!!



Well, well, well.... they may hate us, but the computers think we're pretty good!

Now all we have to do is beat the Gamecocks.... again.... not an easy task.

This one's for you...



To all the haters in the media who said we wouldn't do it....

To all the vegas-haters who put the odds against us....

How do you like them Tigers now?

This one

Iron Bowl 2010



Well boys and girls, it's once again time for the Iron Bowl where the undefeated Auburn Tigers are are actually the UNDERDOGS in this game!! I haven't read a single review the shows Auburn coming out on top! YIKES!!

While I would agree this match will be a close one I can't say Bama's going to win with full confidence.

Guess we'll have to wait and see..... c-ya at kickoff!!

Happy Thanksgiving!



Well here we are again.

Another year has gone by and I'm once again writing about the joys of my favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving Day.

This is the holiday where presents don't exists and retailers ignore. There's no hype or countdown to it and the only thing you do is sit back and think of all the things you are thankful today.

Be thankful my friends!

Why didn't this post?? I don't see it on my computer. Hmmm... which means it's either just me or nobody's checking my blog anymore... hmmm...

I'll re-post it and see what happens.

Lost Years (28)



Switching gears yet again we start off with a look at a very Young Chris Pryor, then some "me" footage" from way back in 2003

We quickly dash over to a shot of my old pal Spencer who's hamming it up to the crowd. Then it's back to me, as I explain a little "go kart" rumor that'd been flying around the CWSC conference for some time.

Still at Jeremy's wedding we start off by seeing a small red head who's mouth was still as big as it is today, Bray and his future spouse.. before they were even dating, and of course some more footage of my lame Ethiopian-looking brother.

Flash forward now to the Wiffle Ball World Series in Texarkana. Caleb "Puddy" Wilkins, does an interview with "Big Sweed" Bart Lizenby.

Then my goofy butt comes on and yes, I did wear that clip on bow tie the entire game. See that trophy in my hand? I still have it today! (pathetic I know, but I was never good at anything else)

Love me hair everybody?

We start off with some footage I should have put on the last clip. Me hitting in a wiffle ball game.

We then move on to a spry Aaron Eley and Roger Cater, chatting it up then ending with a delightful prank by your very own Jonathan Branson.

Enjoy!

Hello Haters,



So this is what it feels like to be a USC fan when they won it all, or a Notre Dame fan (when they're winning)or a Florida Gators fan when Steve Spurrier was in charge.

Wow.

They world hates Auburn right now, I mean, even the other SEC teams (which usually ban together)hate us! And for what? Being #1?

Cam Newton's under the gun, Guilty until proven innocent among his piers. So far, nothing but accusations have been made. Accusations. That's it, and there's nothing about what Auburn did. The focus is on Miss State and if Cam's father asked for money from them or not. No accusations have been made that he asked for money from Auburn.

Miss State should be worried if you ask me. If all this went down in November like they said, then why did they wait till mid-January to report it to the NCAA? Hmmmm...

Fear has people wanting Cam Newton to step down as Auburns starter. Fear has fans booing every time Auburn scores and cheering every time they draw a penalty. Speaking of which....

Let's talk about the two ejections at the end of the game. Funny how Number 60 (and I believe #7?) both through punches too, but neither were ejected from the game. Never mind that Nick Fairly was getting punched in the ribs while on the ground after a play. It's the "villain" that takes the blame.

I'm not excuses what the Auburn players did. Both were stupid, both should have been ejected. But why does GA get away with it? That part I don't understand.

On the other hand this goes back to what I was saying about Gene Chizic last year. That the man has NO CONTROL over the actions of his team! None! Hello! Anybody still remember the Northwestern game from last year?! The only reason it was close was because Auburn kept making personal fouls every time they scored!

I still hold up the Gene is a terrible head football coach that unfortunantly is hiding behind a list full of W's so that no one can see him for who he is.

Oh well, later haters!

That's all folks!



Hope you got your tickets to see the dinner theater. Because if not you'll have to start searching StubHub for them!

We're sold out now. Every show! Amazing!! I've never been a part of something that's been this big!

Ok, that's all I had to say for now. Have a great weekend everyone!

Switching gears once again to when we played in the Wiffle Ball league in 2002. The "Wilkins Power" was with us and we were able to win the game.

You'll see Bray, Aaron Eley knock a homer, some Bean Dance, some ROGER CARTER and the best footage at the end where Eley has put "weights" on the end of his wiffle bat. HILARIOUS!

Here's me giving a lesson in how to pick up chicks.

Is it a wonder I was single for so long??

Wednesday, November 10, 2010



Uh-oh. Hope you got your ticket, because for the 2nd straight weekend... we're sold out. Next Saturday? Sold out.

Only tickets available now are for Friday's show.... but hurry, they're going fast!

Now we get to the backstage (or should I say foyer) footage. This footage is much better.

There's even a little of me in this clip, years before I even set foot on stage.

Fun stuff!

More Strauss theatre footage continues!

Tony and Bray both take the stage in what I think was called the "9/11 Tribute" show. I wonder what Bray would think of how he sounded back then to what he does now?

Saturday, November 06, 2010



Guess what's going on at my dinner theater? That's right! The first weekend has been entirely sold out!!

And get this.... we're 7 seats away from selling out next weekend too! Incredible!! Needless to say the director and producer are "extremely happy" about the results. It IS turning in to quite a show if I do say so myself.

Ok, that's all. Just had to boast a little there. Have a great weekend everybody!

Now we switch gears to the grand ole days of the Strauss theatre. I want to apologize in advance for the footage, with me messing with the "picture" aspect on my camera and the stage lighting, this footage isn't the best. But it does feature "spring chickens" so as Tony Sanson and Caleb Wilkins in the first number.

Then of course it's on to the ladies as April Downs and Ms Heather Brandle (now Sweeny) sing "Diamonds are a girls best friend"

Ah, the good ole days.

Here we here the post-interview, to show everyone just how idiot I could be, and then a few "rave" reviews from Elizabeth Newman and Ryan.

Giants win



Congratulations to the San Fransisco Giants, who won the World Series as a San Fransisco team for the first time ever!

I didn't think you could win the World Series. I didn't think you would win the NCLS. I didn't think you would win the Division Series. Heck, I thought you'd lose to the Padres and miss the playoffs entirely!

Good job!

Halloween Party

So Megan and I decided to throw together a little Halloween party Friday night. We dressed as Dexter and Deb from the Showtime series "Dexter" But that wasn't the entire costume.

Megan also went to work on decorating the kitchen like the "kill room" Dexter uses in the show. For those of you who watch it, you'll get this clip. Everyone else.... sorry.
