What’s Your Spiral Jetty?

  If you prefer to watch the video to reading below check it out here.  We recommend both.   Robert Smithson was 32 years old in 1970 when he created his masterpiece, Spiral Jetty, at the north end of the Great Salt Lake, near Historic Golden Spike National Park in Promontory, Utah. His artwork still garners attention to this day, more visitors making the trip than ever.  Who would have thought this odd creation would stand the test of time?  Luckily for Smithson’s legacy he took the risk of making the art as early as possible in his life, as

We Are The Accumulation of Our Habits

  Reflecting on a calendar year is a profound place to check ourselves in the department of “what are you made of?” In viewing the accomplishments of the year, celebrating those, and then seeing the even greater amount of failed attempts, challenges, and missed goals, everything appears relative. You may see me as a success, while I may not see myself that way at all, and vice versa. You may be confused by my direction and path because its not the one you thought it should be for me, that I should be more successful, and yet how would you

Why am I writing about this?  Because this

When “Genius” is the Only Way To Describe Someone

  Driving to Ryan Hamilton’s sold out show last Friday, I reflected on our history, having worked together at the beginning of our career at Johnny B’s Comedy Club in Provo, UT, where he, of all people, opened for me….and now seeing him becoming a household name, selling out 4 straight nights at the largest comedy club in Utah, Wiseguys in SLC.
