Dear Internet (Kyle's return to bloggy world)

Hey Internet,

I know it's been a while since I last wrote (awkward silence) ...ahem...

How are you? I'm doing pretty well. What have you been up to these past few months? We've since moved to Utah. Did you hear that a couple months ago MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice got back together for a big concert here in UT-- isn't it great? I'm uber-enthused to see them so happy... celebrating an old friendship by conjuring up forgotten talents and all. It's been a while... Maybe you've
already heard this news, but Rick Astley, himself, rick-rolled America during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade last November, on live TV. I don't think I'll ever forget the emotion of that day (initial confusion, then slight betrayal, then finally inner-peace and everlasting joy). We have you to praise for the act, by elevating another forsaken 80s singer back into our mainstream culture.

Well to be honest, the main reason I wanted to write you, Internet, was to thank you for the service and joy you bring to the world, of which you selflessly give 24-7! You probably get this from a lot of your friends, but because of you, our lives are immensely enriched. You push people to new creative peaks. You give a voice to the masses--and people actually listen (I mean, just look at what you've done for Tay Zonday and Charlie the Unicorn...). If soup symbolized world-wide unity (wwu), you would be the spiciest jambalaya ripped from the
suffocating grasp of the deepest bayou--anything and everything you add unites to form a new magical treat for the palate. But soup doesn't symbolize anything, really, so you'll just have to imagine what I mean.



ps- If you're ever feeling discouraged about your difficult work (which all people do on occasion), simply watch this video and remember what degree of inspiration you channel into the world.
Stay cool, Internet!

From talking to you on the phone, I knew to expect a great post, but it wasn't until I read the title, and then the first line, that I knew - this was not going to just be a great post, it was going to be THE great post. And watching that awesome drum guy fully confirmed what I had suspected all along: Kyle and the internet are the two greatest forces for awesome the world has ever seen.

I'm still waiting for that Hammer/Vanilla Ice love fest to make it to Honolulu...
