Man Crush Monday, Pt 1 (of 4): The Native James Bond, Martin Sensmeier
One of the implicit job duties of being a writer is that you’re actually supposed to have something interesting to say. That’s hard for me sometimes because I’m a pretty boring guy—I like to hang out with my kid and family, watch Kung Fu Hustle and play Rygar, Super Dodgeball and Baseball Stars on Nintendo.
One of the things that writers are supposed to do then is to FIND interesting subject matter—events that people care about. That’s cool—we get to go to cool events. One of the really cool things too is that we have an excuse to meet really interesting people. It’s much easier to go up to someone and get to know them under the auspices of “Hey, you’re pretty cool and I wanna write something about you…” instead of just “Hey, I’ve been watching you.”
That’s just creepy.
This “Man Crush Monday” is a series that I’ve been wanting to do for some time, but honestly just didn’t have the balls to do. I’ve been wanting to highlight and just UNABASHEDLY gush about a few brothers that were absolutely amazing, and there’s really no other way to describe my fondness for them other than to call it what it is—a “man-crush.” But, that just sounds…somehow. And that’s absolutely cool to sound “somehow” if I were indeed somehow…but I’m not somehow!
