Currently, I host and produce my own talk show. I do interviews with celebrities (phone, Skype, and in person) and highlight unique spots around the Chicago area that have a touch of celebrity.
As a journalist, I've covered Air Force One landing (from 150 feet away), the Rod Blagojevich trial, and other events.
When asked in physics class to list the 5 greatest inventions of all time, I wrote down only one: "Sliced bread". The teacher was not amused. I was.
Poorly choreographed movie and TV show sword fights annoy me. The ones where the person puts theirs up to block the shot before the shot comes, but then the other person comes down right where the blocking sword is. It's like they're not even trying.
My name on here is MiketheFirst because, back in high school, I would always add a Roman numeral I to the end of my signature, because: 1) it's accurate 2) I could. The "the first" stuck, and as such, I am Mike the First.
I dont like it when people leave apostrophes out of contractions that should have them.
If you're about to write to me and tell me that I'm a hypocrite because of the above, mwahahahaha, you fell into my clever trap!
Also, the "Personality" tab on here isn't exactly accurate.
