About (The Cliff Notes version)


Name:  Andrew

Location:  Bergen County, New Jersey

Special skills:  Apple cider connoisseur, ability to eat shockingly hot peppers for a white guy, hosting the Oscars:  1991-1993, 1995

About my blog:  Listen to Hall and Oates while reading, it really adds to the overall experience.

Thanks for reading?:  Why yes!  Thank you very much.  I owe you a big hug if we ever run into each other.

Do I have a picture of myself with a wooden chicken?:  Ask and ye shall receive…  




– Are your initials really “A.B”?  Can I call you “Alphabet Starter”?

Yes.  I actually insist you do.

– Your last name rhymes with “spaghetti” and you’re from NJ.   Are you Italian?  Can you make me a delicious sauce?

Yes I am.  But I find those to be silly Italian-American stereotypes.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to my organ grinder job.

– I think I remember you from your years in the Wu-Tang Clan.  Am I right?


– Do you believe in aliens? 

If Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith can defeat them, I’m not too worried.

– Fruit Roll-Ups or Fruit By the Foot?

 Fruit Roll-Ups.  There’s no need to bring math into my snacks. 

– I’m the Bee Girl from the Blind Melon video.  Can I PLEASE have my costume back?

    Oh, when a laugh is needed….I shall be here. Great “About”. Thank you for stopping by my rather low-key blog….. I’m sure you have to get back to organ-grinding now… 😉

    • Haha, no organ grinding for me today, but truthfully, I did end up making a sauce! Haha, I wanted to give you a big thanks for the kind words- I’m really happy you enjoyed! It means a lot, and I hope my future posts don’t disappoint!

      Thanks again!

    Great about me! I did get some looks from other Starbucks goers while reading {quite the chuckle inducing post} but I think they just need a few more sips of their lattes. Keep the great stuff coming!!

  12. Hi Andrew!! Thanks for stopping by and following my blog!! I read your review of Human Centipede and thought it was great. Its so nice to connect with fellow horror fans and see that you love it just as much as do. I also love the humor that you incorporate into your writing.

    Congratulations!! I’ve nominated you for The Imagine Award! In order to find out more about how to accept this award, click on the link below. If you would like to decline the award (which is okay—no worries!)…if you could pass it onto a blog which you find to be very creative, that would be great. This is a new award, so I would like to see it spread out through the WordPress community. Spread the love, and again congratulations! Your great imagination and creativity are deeply appreciated.

    • Thanks ever so much Melissa! I apologize for not responding sooner, had a medical issue in the family (all is well now) that gave me a bit of an unplanned absence from WordPress for a bit. I’m incredibly flattered and thankful for the shout-out and your kind words. Whenever someone appreciates my goofy writings, it really means a lot. Thank you very much.
