A gentleman treats people well at work and at home.

— Oscar de la Renta, designer


Be it your car with all the great memories, a guitar that shows the wear of endless jam sessions, that special baseball bat that helped you win the big game or whatever else may be your prized possession.  Give it a name and make sure your best friends know its name too.

Crushed Bike

Never leave your bike in the drive way.  Also, when you have kids of your own, always make sure the drive way is clear of your kids toys before backing up.  (Sorry for backing over your bike with the truck son.  Don’t worry, I will fix it.  — Love Dad)


Every guy needs a best friend, by that, I mean a dog.  They love you, protect you, learn cool tricks and can sometimes help attract cute girls.  Just make sure to take proper care of them, nothing worse than a neglected dog.

…the true meaning of amateur is someone who practices a study, sport or past time for the passion of it and the passion to learn it rather than for the money.

— Kenny (smonkyouon Twitter) as he remembers the words of Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer for Iron Maiden

“So little dude…find what your passion is and do that…if you get paid for it that’s awesome…if you pick it as a career but lose that passion run away, find something else to pay the bills and find your passion again. Stay an amateur (even if you get paid) it’s more fun.” – Written by Kenny to his baby son Miloh


Build stuff you love, and build stuff you want to use yourself. I promise you success if you stick to those two rules.

The most important piece of advice I ever got was from my father. He said: “Follow your dreams and look after your friends.”
