Some Surprises for the Renaissance Man

Shameless Self-Promotion 7 Comments

(Tom Woods has referred to me as a Renaissance Man, because of my ability to procrastinate on several fronts.)

Naturally, I was hoping the zombie and Buckinghams’ performances would draw accolades. But I was expecting people to say, “That was hilarious!” or “Good job!” I was not expecting the supreme compliments of, “Who did you get to sing that?” and “Have you seen Tom Woods’ zombie video? It’s hilarious, here’s the link.” (I just got the latter today in my inbox.)

Of course, there are always unintended consequences. In Panera the other day, my 5-year-old out of the blue starts yelling in a monotone voice: “Neo-Confederate!!” Then he explained that I had no brains in Auburn, something that many people at the Mises Institute hear from their critics.

    I once planned to make a New Year’s resolution to stop procrastinating, but then decided to wait.

    I’ve tried getting my friends to keep me from procrastinating, but they all failed.

    What can I say, I’ve got amazing willpower.
