A Year In The Life Of L. Matthew Sutton

Tuesday, December 25, 2001; 11:02 a.m.

I just wanted to take the time to wish everybody a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Don't forget the reason we celebrate Christmas: the birth of Jesus Christ, the true messiah and savior.

Anyway, I'm outta here to go celebrate. Your song of the update is "Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney, and I am OUTTA HERE!

An update! Yeah!

Saturday night was the Snowflake Ball, and the king and queen were my RA, Frank Wright, and Amy Graham. Anyway, fun was had by all. Not really a whole lot to comment on about it, other than "you had to be there."

This week is finals week, but lucky me, I've only got two more tests and a paper for a third class. After that, it's ONE FULL MONTH until I have to go back. So I get to party at home for a month. I'm just hoping somebody wants to throw a New Year's Party. New Year's Parties RULE.

Anyway, I'm gonna close this final with the Song Of The Update, which is "Tribute" by Tenacious D, a tribute to the greatest song in the world (even though they forgot what it was). And that's all for now. Catch ya next time.

Hey, what do you know? An update! I hope you guys didn't get bored waiting for me to update.

I'm sure you'd like to know what's been going down this week. Monday night, was Bell's! Me and a group of people walked to Bell's Bakery after BSU, and hung out on the steps of Campbellsville Christian Church for a while. Tuesday was Cheap Movie Night, and I went with Amy, Zach, Chandra, and Weaver to see Behind Enemy Lines. Good flick; I reccomend it. Not much happened tonight. Me and the roomies are watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III right now, and there's big plans for Saturday night. Saturday is the Snowflake Ball or whatever it's called, and that plans to be fun, fun, fun.

And concluding this update, tonight's Song of the Update is "Tattoo" by Big Mother Thruster. Anyway, that's all for tonight. Check me out later!

After one week without an update, HERE I AM! Did you miss me? ;-) I hope y'all had an awesome Thanksgiving weekend. I sure did. Me and Dad went to the Simpsonville flea market, and I picked up the House On Haunted Hill DVD and Rob Zombie's new CD, titled "The Sinister Urge." It's a good CD, if you're into heavy metal.

A group of us went to see Martin Lawrence's new movie Black Knight tonight, and while it was funny, it wasn't as good as I thought. But at least Monsters Inc. was awesome. I saw Monsters Inc. on Saturday, and it's one of the best movies I've seen in a while. Go see it if you haven't already. Hopefully, it'll beat that infernal Harry Potter movie. Harry Potter is the new Pokemon: a fad that kids love to death, which will actually be dead within a few years. Oh well, maybe that's my anti-establishment side talking.

Anyway, after seeing Black Knight, me, Kenny, Craig, and Anne went to the new Krystal here in C-Ville. It's a nice place, but I don't like onions on my burgers, in any form. But that couldn't be avoided.

Okay, I don't know what else to add other than the Song of the Update. Tonight's winner is.......<drum roll>......... "Click Click Boom" by Saliva. I like it. :) Hey, I'm outta here like I stole something. Catch y'all laterz....

Hey hey! An update! Whooooooooooooooooooooo!

This past weekend, a group of my buddies at CU conducted a revival at my church, and it was fun for all. Yay Jesus! :)

BSU was tonight, and "Butter" (the nickname for former CU student Ron Cornelison [I think that's how his last name is spelled]) was the speaker. Not much to say other than it was awesome.

I can't think of anything else to add to the update other than the (not quite) world-renowned "Song Of The Update," which is "Bodies" by Drowning Pool. Yeah, the song sucks, but that doesn't change the fact that it's not a good song! Wait, did I get that right? Anyway, I wanna wish all you readers an early Happy Turkey Day, and I'm off to sleep.

Howdy, y'all. A bunch of us got together and watched Legally Blonde in Coogle and Blank's room tonight, then went to the Student Lounge and played "Mafia." If you haven't played Mafia, it's hard to explain. You'd almost have to see it played for it to be explained. Anyway, we had a good time tonight.

The Song of the Update is a rap song, "Still D.R.E." by Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg. Remember, I do archive the Song of the Update, and the list of songs that qualify for this honor are also on this site (and that list is constantly being updated). And if you want to make a request, most of you readers know my e-mail address, or are able to contact me somehow. Not much else to say, so I'll catch y'all laterz...

Updatery! Whoo-hoo!

I went to Greensboro today to hear Kenny speak at a revival. It was AWESOME! Somebody even got saved! Kenny's gonna be speaking at my church Sunday, and I'm hoping it goes good.

I'm adding my MP3 list to the site, just so you can have an idea of what songs qualify for my Song of the Update award. Speaking of the Song of the Update, tonight's winner is "Right Now," performed by SR-71. This is the end of this short little update. Catch ya later...

Hey, I'm back with a brand-spankin'-new post to the only website that gives you, my faithfully devoted readers (all -57 of you), the inside scoop on Larry Boy. The CU football team won their game against Union College 49-7, and the live televised broadcast (which I was a part of, as a sideline cameraman) included my dad and sister getting on camera. That made their day. :)

Right about now, I want to promote the homepage of Kenny Rager. His URL can be found at the very top of the links page. If you're too lazy to check the links page, click HERE. I figured since I created my own page as such a blatant and obvious rip-off of his site, I might as well let you know about his. Besides, Kenny is far more humorous than I'll ever be. (And he's far more popular with the ladies than I'll ever be, too. You can tell him I said that.)

Picked up some new stuff on Saturday: the WWF Hardcore DVD, Kurt Angle's autobiography It's True! It's True!, and Toby McKeehan's new solo CD (titled "Momentum"). Toby Mac's CD rocks, though I haven't really gotten the chance to sit down and check out my new DVD or book yet. I'll get to that as soon as possible.

Here is where'd I'd like to give you, my readers, the "Song Of The Update." What's the Song Of The Update, you may ask. Well, I'll tell you. The Song Of The Update is the new feature I'm doing, where I tell you (yes, you) the song that I'm listening too while I type my post. And for the first-ever Larry Boy's Song Of The Update, the winner is the song "Renegade," performed by Styx. I'm gonna keep these songs archived, so you can check those whenever you want via the link at the bottom.

Hey, I am gonna go catch up on my sleep. I'll catch you on the flip side.

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to proudly announce that the Ben-Joe Horror Show was a huge success. It featured the films House On Haunted Hill, In The Mouth Of Madness, and What Lies Beneath. The show started at Stapp Lawn at around 10:00 last night, and concluded at 3:45 a.m. or thereabouts. Seven people went the distance: myself, Kenny, Michelle, Sara, Anne, and our hosts, Joe Young and Ben Feather. This message is gonna be kinda short, but folks, to say that last night reeked of awesomeness would be an understatement. I'm looking forward to future Ben-Joe Shows, which they say will be broadened to The Ben-Joe Chickflick Show, The Ben-Joe Comedy Show, and so on, so forth.

But before the show, there was the incredible production of Peter Pan. I doubt I'd have went under normal circumstances, but I got paid. :) My good friend Alex, who played Captain Hook, co-owns a production company, and he offered me 20 dollars to help film it. I'm glad I went, because the play is unbelieveable. It's hilarious, and even includes Captain Hook & The Pirates performing a parody of "Pop" by N'Sync.

On the DVD front, go buy the special edition of Monty Python & The Holy Grail. If you don't have a DVD player, get one so you can have this DVD. On no other DVD can you see a musical number from the movie performed with Legos. Yeah, Legos. Ya heard me. So much insane stuff is on here, including Subtitles For People Who Don't Like The Movie (which are lines from a William Shakespeare play).

I'm gonna wrap this up here; I have to go get ready for work.

Well, well, well. Here for you is an update from the man that shamelessly ripped his website off frome some other guy, Larry Sutton.

Kenny decided to show off his short films he made with his buddies from Owensboro tonight to the guys and gals we hang out with tonight, using my pad as his theater. We had a roomfull, and I was happy because I haven't had a room full of people here since last August. Thinking of films, Joe Y. and Ben are debuting the Ben-Joe Horror Show on Stapp Lawn tonight. Be there, or be a circle. Or is that a triangle? I don't remember. Maybe it was an octagon, or a pentagon. Oh well.

More running while I walked today. This time, we had ten or so people running. After it was all said and done, me, Kenny, Anne, Adrianne, Shae, and One Of The Many Joshes walked to Miller Park and met up with Holly. Fun, fun, fun at the park. Anyway, we managed to catch a ride from Holly back to CU. Seven people piled in an itty-bitty car. Two people were sitting in some laps. :) Hung out at Bell's Apartment afterwards, then came back here. Not a very exciting day, but it was a fun one. Anyway, it's VERY late and I need my beauty rest (as much as I can get). Peace out, my homies.

I just thought I'd warn my millions and millions of online readers (all three of you) that I may tend to ramble or babble. Please ignore any incoherence, unless you like to laugh at it. And by all means, laugh away! God blessed me with the gift of humor, after all.

You may notice the color change. The reason behind my change from lime-green text to silver text is because Kenny, my good friend and consort, filed a grievence against my site. The grievence stated that lime-green text with a black background is a trademark of his site. So here we are with silver text. What can a guy do?

Anyway, FCA and convo were today. FCA was great, as usual. And in a shocking, surprising turn of events, convo was actually good. Yep, good. Ya heard me. The guy that spoke lectured on the persecuted church over in Europe and Asia. Man, how I envy those who suffer for Jesus. I wish I was as half as brave as they are. We Americans have it too good sometimes. After FCA, me, Kenny, and Anne went running around the Campus Mile. Actually, they went running and I hung out before walking a lap with them. Walking a mile in cold weather makes Larry a sick boy, I can guarantee it. But regardless, us three had a great time cutting up with each other. I won't be walking the Campus Mile any time soon, but I enjoyed the quality time. That being said, good ol' Larry Boy's off to Sleepland now, as he's got a boring 9:30 class waiting to smack him in his face. G'nite, y'all.

On a sports-related note: The Arizona Diamondbacks are the 2001 World Series champions. Although I congratulate them on this feat, I'm a Yankees fan, and therefore I'm sad. :(

I got the Shrek DVD yesterday, and it's awesome. I wish I had a DVD-ROM on my computer to enjoy all the features, but I think I can live with what I have. Besides, Shrek is an awesome, awesome movie.

Anyway, I've got some pictures of the WWF show at Rupp Arena up. Check them out, won't you? I'll probably have more updatery sometime. Feel free to check out the site while you're here. I know there's not much, but humor me. I'm off to work now, so goodbye!

Friday, November 2, 2001; 4:35 p.m.

Okay, here we are. This is the very first post on my all new, butt-kickin', totally non-craptastic web site.

Last night, we had over 20 people at the not-necessarily world famous Dumas Walker's in Greensburg. Highlights include everybody singing chorus of the song "Dumas Walker" by The Kentucky Headhunters, me lip-synching Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds," and me, Kenny, and Blank imitating Top Gun by singing the Righteous Brothers classic "You've Lost That Loving Feeling."

A bunch of us saw Thirteen Ghosts on Tuesday. It wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but the ghost effects were really cool.

Me and my buddy Mo went to a WWF show at Rupp Arena recently, and pictures should be up shortly.

More updatery soon, I promise!
