I met Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and John Kasich (lol) in 2016.

And fuck Travis Kelce.


That's really cool, v2.

From your personal interactions, who came off as better than you expected? Who came off worse? And which one would best survive a Randy Orton RKO-outta-nowhere?

My wife met Ogden Nutting.

I met Sonny Barger. His voice sounded like a Norelco electric shaver was lodged in his throat.

I don't even think I mind Ogden. It seems like that old timer was just a figurehead when the Nutting family officially completed the takeover from Kevin McClatchey, and that Bob (and Bob's shoestring budget) have basically been running the team from the start.

I respect the hell out of people that begin businesses. However, 2nd generation owners that assume the business can be very hit or miss. Bob is definitely a miss.

You know more than you think, based on what my wife and some Seven Springs employees have told us. On a personal level, Ogden seems to be a nice guy. Bob is aloof and definitely doesn't like to mingle. Bob's kids on the other hand seem to take their privilege as a right to honored by everyone else.

Years ago, I was on set of the soap opera "General Hospital", and I could not get over how TINY most of the cast was. Just, small, little, tiny, minute little people. All beautiful and all gorgeous and all features and cheekbones, but LITTLE SMALL PEOPLE.

I've heard the same thing, that all actors and actresses are tiny. In the drama departments at schools I've been in that had drama departments, the actors were tiny and the actresses were normal-sized. Then again, selection criteria are different. On the stage, they pick based on ability, while film and TV pick based on appearance.

It's actually shocking, how little they really are. Even the male sex symbol leads, they're like those tiny little men who advertise for the bow flex, lmao. They have like 6 percent body fat, but they are like 5'3" and 140 soaking wet. I think it has to do with how they frame the camera for the actors and actresses, they fit into the screen format better. And for love scenes, it's extremely difficult to match a normal, 6' tall man, and a 5'1" 97 pound woman.
