My Letter to Mike Birbiglia (Updated)

Ladies and Gentlemen,
  The good news is that Mike (or at least his brother Joe) has seen some of the stuff I've written and posted in my quest to secure him as the writer of my book forward.

  The bad news is, he has declined my request. Thank you all for your support. my "Letter to Mike Birbiglia" got a good number of page views in almost no time.

  Please continue to check out my Kickstarter Campaign and share that love.


I'm reaching out to one of my heroes, Mike Birbiglia. Finishing up my book, I'm trying to get him to write the forward. It's a reach, but it would be the highlight of my career. So, to my entire audience, knowing that my book will be just the thing to make you laugh when your complicated relationship becomes even more complicated, please tweet @birbigs or +Mike Birbigs about my project, and I will collectively deem you the greatest audience... NAY... the best team... NAY! NAY!... the best friends @MoTheThird has ever had.

Dear Mike Birbiglia,

As Batman, I beat up bad guys and ran away from girls. I had a twenty-six word "birds and bees" talk with my dad. And I tried to teach myself Sex Education by reading out of the 1992 World Book Encyclopedia. I'm a humor writer and bit of a Birbiglophile (in the least sleazy way possible). I own Two Drink Mike, Sleepwalk With Me, and What I Should Have Said Was Nothing. I've actually seen you live twice, as well. I saw My Girlfriend's Boyfriend at The Warner Theater in DC, and Sleepwalk With Me in Indy. I've turned many of my friends into fans of your whimsical storytelling. I enjoy supporting your work, 'cause I'd hate for you to be asleep at a job somewhere.
You actually inspired me on my quest to be a storyteller who makes people laugh. I wrote a book called Romancing the Hilarity. I'm running a Kickstarter Campaign to self-publish and do an off-kilter book tour in January. If you would consider writing the forward to my book, I would be indescribably grateful.
Check out my project, and if you're interested in writing a forward for it, I would be ecstatic.
Thanks for your work, Morris DuBose v.3.0 @MoTheThird
P.S. Are you still on a quest to overtake The Avengers in box office sales?

Sacred Truth

Sometimes the best truths about spiritual walk come a secular voice

Hymn #387
God you are so cool.
Although sometimes it's like "what's the deal?"
You never answer your cell phone,
And your messages are often ambiguous

It's My Party...

My Dear and Delightful Readers,
October 23 was my birthday. it’s been this day every year. I just don’t, usually, put it online for everyone to see. This year, I’m changing it up for the sake of my dream. I’m finishing up my book and launched a Kickstarter campaign in celebration of the big two- nine. 

My kickstarter campaign is LIVE!

You don’t have to give unless you want to, and can afford it. I would, however, love it if you would watch my video and share my campaign one or two times on your social media vice or vices of choice. 

Happy Birthday  To Me

Thanks for your support

In The Beginning

In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.
He looked on, and saw it was good. Good; a thing of beauty
Lovely and loved.
In the beginning was the Word.
The word was with, and in very nature God.
As the Father has loved...
God demonstrates His own love…
For God so loved…
In the beginning.

Then the Church filled with the Holy Ghost and power;
The Lord added to their number daily.
And all that believed were together, and had all things common.
Beloved, let us love one another.
And the second is like it; love your neighbor as yourself.
And continuing daily in one accord in the temple-
And breaking bread from house to house,
Did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.
Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly with God,
Love your enemy.
A new command to the Church,
That was then.

Megachurches and mission statements crush my spirit and dull my mind.
The Christian Island:
My Conversion
            I walked the Romans Road and I prayed the prayer
My Testimony
            I was in darkness
My Walk
            My devotions and my quiet time
My Church
            Why leave? Because I didn’t agree with something pastor said
My God
            Deity that fits my box

The church is on the move with or without God’s help;
Bigger buildings, better facilities. Holy Spirit, who?
Brand new project integration, Sunday service segregation,
Religious Right retaliation, tithing out of obligation,
Desperate for a new sensation, all-day Christian TV station,
Doctrinal internalization drives a spike into this nation.

If this is all there is, what do I do with tomorrow?
If today holds this shape, can we remold it after the sun sets?
If this is now… Then what?

For God so loved
The Word became flesh

In the beginning.

Bar Crawl

Bar Crawl
This is a true story about some people I was out with. Sometimes the veritas of vino isn't OK.
