Saturdays With Roman, Part 1
This is going to be a short post in terms of text, because we’ve got some video to get to.
Normally, I have a hard time reining in my loquacity, so I’ll do my best to be quick.
Today, I want to announce on a new feature of the Roman Empirer – a video blog series I’m calling “Saturdays with Roman.”
It’s kind of like Tuesdays with Morrie, only instead of being about “an old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lessons,” it’s more like “a well-dressed bro, a camera, and some random rambling on the internet.”
Still, you can see how they’re similar.
The focus of the series is simple: when I was younger, I used to wake up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons; it was a unique and special time, and had a very specific type of ritual. From as young as 6 years old, I would get up and make myself a bowl of cereal (Honey Nut Cheerios, to be exact), and plop down in front of the TV in my little Superman underoos to watch all manner of animated awesomeness, ranging from the Smurfs to the Bionic Six. As a complete side note, can we just have a moment to reflect on the Disney Afternoon, and how awesome that was?
As I got old, the trend continued. Even in my mid-twenties, I would wake up at about 8 in the morning, bleary eyed from having stayed out till 3, I would do the same thing. At that point, I was wearing Diesel briefs and the cereal was oatmeal mixed with protein powder (I wasn’t yet fasting), but I would still watch old cartoons like X-Men and Spiderman, which had found a new home on some of newer channels that showed retro TV shows.
Alas, those days are no longer. Saturday morning cartoons–the ones from my generation, that is–are n0 longer on air. At least, not on Saturday mornings. On top of that, now that all into intermittent fasting and whatnot, my first meal isn’t until 3pm, and I certainly can’t hang out in my undies until mid-afternoon. I got things to do! All told, Saturday doesn’t really give me much to look forward to–and I am guessing a lot of you are feeling the same.
As of today, you’ll have something cool to look forward to: Saturdays with Roman, where we talk about anything and everything, and have fun. Is it as much fun as watching Thundercats and eating fruit loops? Time will tell.
Having said that, here is the first installment of SwR. Enjoy!
So, there you have it – 9 minutes and 45 seconds worth of randomness. Let’s discuss.
I want YOUR thoughts on the following:
Do you think Saturdays with Roman is a good idea?
Why are people so freaked out about sex?
Should I just “stick to fitness”?
Most importantly: what should I talk about next week?
