Dave and I recently performed at Lehigh’s open mic night. Here are some videos of the show.
The first project of my final semester was to make a short personal documentary video that tells a story from your life. This is a very real, very terrifying story about a bicycle accident I was involved in.

New thing, join the mailing list so I can never email you. Someone told me this was a good idea.
My senior year of high school, I was nominated for the Wendy’s Heisman award. It’s basically a circle jerk promotional award that Wendy’s gives out to twelve “exceptional” students in West Virginia. This means you have to get good grades, participate in sports, and do some sort of community service. It’s difficult enough to even find twelve students in West Virginia, let alone twelve that meet those requirements. So when they told me I had been nominated, I wasn’t overly impressed.
The local news stations were going around interviewing each nominee at their school, which I thought was completely preposterous. The fact that my mediocre school and sports performances and forced community service constituted a spot on the nightly news was absurd.
Anyways, I recently found the DVD they gave us at the dinner. My interview is below, but first, here’s an example of one of the other nominees to give you an idea for who I was up against.
Next is mine. A few things to notice: the 7th grade P.E. book I grab from a random locker and intellectually skim, the fact that the newscaster has to say that “he knows it’s an honor,” and my hair.
At the dinner, some big shot from Wendy’s corporation gave me a gift certificate for $5 to spend on chicken nuggets.

This year, Chik-Fil-A was replaced by a hot new restaurant called Flame in Upper UC. In this episode, I expose the truth about the new eatery.
Senior year started about two weeks ago, and I’ve found myself with a dangerous amount of free time. The past three years I took about two or three extra credits per semester, and they added up to give me an incredibly light senior course load. Which is fortunate, since I now consider myself too old for formal education.
Instead of learning, I’ve decided my time is better spent investigating the seedy underbelly of Lehigh and beyond. So I launched a web series title “Robbie on a Bike.” It’s kind of like my Invisible Interview Series, but for non-famous people, it’s video taped, and I ride a bike.
