      My good friend was on one of the earlier cycles and she confirmed what we all suspected, which is now a known fact. It truly wasn’t about who was the best model, nor who had a chance of actually making it. It was all about TV, drama, and who could bring in the ratings. Furthermore, during filming, they all realized that if you win, you’d get screwed by the contract you had signed so you were actually better off getting exposure and then getting kicked off. Besides, anyone who knows anything about the fashion business knows that (sadly) you don’t become a top model in your mid-twenties, as they often cast. You have to get going in your mid-to-late teens.

      I was serving on a patio, we were slammed, and I was carrying some plates back to the kitchen. A gust blew and a portion cup with a bit of ranch flew off, and some got on to a lady’s coat. I immediately apologized and got my manager. He goes out there, offers to pay for the dry-cleaning and the woman demanded her entire 10 person party get a free meal because “Your servers threw a cup of ranch at me.” My manager assured her that it was an accident. She kept going and going, and finally someone at her table goes, “X, shut the fuck up. He did not throw the ranch at you. It’s windy as fuck and we chose to sit outside. Give it a rest.” It was beautiful.

      These have already been mentioned but three times that got to me in theaters: 1. Brokeback Mountain: Went to see it with a friend as a somewhat recently out gay man and it broke my heart. I did not cry in theaters but cry every time I watch it at home now. 2. I went to see Crash, as it was kind of a runaway hit, and did not really know much about it. I went to see it with my friend and the entire theater (there wasn’t many) was entirely silent in the scene when the store owner goes to shoot the locksmith and shoots the daughter. Also, the scene where the cop pulls the woman out of the car that he had molested in a prior stop. Intense. 3. I went to see Paranormal Activity when it first came out. It was when they were doing the “Vote It” into your town so we got it in the first roll out. Apparently Ann Arbor really wanted to see it. Seeing it in a completely sold out old school theater was amazing. I remember the credits rolling and seeing a girl running out the exit sobbing.
