The Who!! Not the band. (Although they are seriously bad ass!) I mean,“Who is TheAngrySheep?”
Why, Thank you for asking! My name is Michael and I am TheAngrySheep. Not the only AngrySheep but we’ll talk about that in a few.
One day I was sitting around my office, reading a whiny email from a friend of mine. The email was all about how the world was against them, everything sucked and their life, as they knew it was the most depressing shit in the history of depressing shit. It got me thinking.
In between watching a dog do back flips on youtube and busty Japanese girls doing, well, something else on another tube (It’s not relevant), I had a Nobel Peace Prize potential idea.
WHAT IF…there were other people who felt this way?
WHAT IF…I could build a site that would bring positive people together?
WHAT IF…the aforementioned site, could help people improve their lives and have fun?
Then…I forgot about it for a few years. I’m like that.
Anyways, last December, I’m sitting in my new office, thinking about life and feeling bad. Broke up with my girlfriend, Christmas was coming, Hanukkah was upon us, Oy Vey.
I had everything I wanted! Why was I miserable! I had money. I had a nice home. I had friends. The psycho was gone. (OK, that’s mean. She wasn’t a psycho. She was actually an incredible woman and dating far below her potential with a schmuck like me. We were actually just on different paths. Mine was to self enlightenment. Hers was to Louis Vuitton)
Why wasn’t I happy?
Why wasn’t I happy? I couldn’t figure it out. Then it hit me. I mean it flat out round house kicked me and finished me off with a Ninja throat punch!
Life isn’t about all you can acquire! Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather have than not have.
Life is about feeling part of something bigger than yourself. It’s about being part of a community. It’s about giving to others. Wow! What a revelation!
Now, how does an antisocial, handsome, impatient, balding, introverted, slightly chubby yet still handsome-ish, spray tanned individual, who is dressed sharply dressed in Chuck T’s and Batman t shirt become a part of something bigger than himself?
He creates a movement. He starts TheAngrySheep.com!
So, I call up my buddy T-Roy, (will tell you more about him later) and I says, “T-Roy, I have a great idea! I’m going to start a movement where I am the leader and can talk about all my beliefs, principles and doctorine! I’m going to help people find their passion! Live their dreams!”
T-Roys response was, “You’re starting a cult?” Ha! I almost fell off my chair!
NO! Not a cult!
How about a blog where people can come and read about things that make their lives better?
A place where religion and politics have no place? No arguing. No meanness. No putting people down. A Utopia! An oasis of calm and fun and information, advice from experts and funny pictures of kittens making cute faces and riding skateboards!
TheAngrySheep.com was born…The rest will be history.
