Quotes from an old roomate..

Man, I was cleaning my room today, and I found a couple of old sheets of paper that I had saved for about 5 years.. I had a roomate (I dont even remember his name anymore, I think it was mike or something but Im not sure), a film major, in college who was super-pessimistic and hated art school, but he was hilarious.. About every day he had some quote-worthy comments about class, TV, commercials, etc. After a while I started writing down the ones I could remember... Going back to read them, I'm surprised I remember the context of most of these, I still laugh at most of these, hopefully some of you do too... (there was another roomate we shared the dorm with, he was a white preppy kid from colorado who was into gangsta rap, some of these have to do with him)
