...No, it's the Brendan Leonard Show. -That is actually a direct quote from the show, that's just how wonderful it was. This show played all summer long in 2003. Those were wonderful times. This show was a huge part of my life. It was the one time in my life (hopefully the only time) when I was a devoted member of a message forum.
The Brendan Leonard Show featured eight 19-year-old young men just doing creative skits and games and such that they made up. It was hilarious and they were just being themselves. Also, it was totally clean. For more info, check this out.
I truly felt like the members of the show were my friends. I would even refer to them as that if I ever met someone from Illinois. ie: "Oh you're from Illinois?" ..."What part?" ..."Oh, cause I have some friends in Winnetka."
Even though I haven't watched the show in over a year, BLS still has an influence on my life today; the show's bands-of-the-day are often featured on my iTunes Top 25 Most Played, favorite quotes from the show still slip out every now and then, most of my infamous moves as an EFY counselor this summer came directly from this old fav, and I'll easily choose Dasani over any other water (because Kevin Sheehan made it clear that it was the best).
And I just realized that I pay extra attention to the kids in my art class who look similar to the members of BLS. There are a couple of boys with shaggier hair who look like Kevin Carlson. When they act up, I find it more amusing than disruptive. I'm pretty sure if other kids did the same things, I would discipline them.
Is yours? I came upon this website having no clue what it was. A friend on Facebook mentioned this acronym in their status and I was curious to see what it meant, so I googled it and came across this website. I am now addicted. Here are some pretty average favs:
"Today, I had to choose between a strawberry flavored Dum Dum and a mystery flavored Dum Dum. I decided to be adventurous and choose the mystery flavor; it was strawberry flavored. MLIA "
"Today, I realized the word bed actually looks like a bed. MLIA "
"Today I was chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school, when a couple of guys, who were up to no good, started making trouble in my neighbourhood. They continued on their way and didn't bother me at all. MLIA "
"Today, I was sad about Michael Jackson's death. So I looked up all his songs and downloaded them illegally, but I didn't feel bad cause he doesn't need the money anymore. MLIA. "
"Today, I saw a commercial for the Snuggie. I thought it was stupid idea but I couldn't change the channel because I was under a blanket and I didn't want my arms to get cold. MLIA "
I actually thought of writing this post a couple of days ago (when I published my last post) but I didn't feel comfortable posting two things in a row on the same day. MLIA
