In 2019 there are 5 people I want to buy a cup of coffee. Here’s my list:
5. Redman - Rapper/Record Producer/Actor @therealredman
He’s a Jersey guy. His music is dope. Best MTV Cribs of all time.
I honestly think we’d become best friends and he’d even be ok with me calling him Regi. Redman would probably order a Caramel Frappuccino, extra caramel.
4. Tig Notaro - Stand-up Comic/Writer/Actress @TigNotaro
She has a great approach and delivery to her comedy. Who doesn’t like stand-up with life threatening scenarios & sock puppets? Tig probably would order a Chai Latte.
3. John Turturro - Actor/Writer/Filmmaker @JohnMTurturro
Okay, John is basically that friend you never personally invite anywhere but he’s always at the group meetup. He’s in every random movie you select on Netflix. He has great range as an actor and I expect he’ll order an Espresso.
2. Daniel Norris - MLB Pitcher @DanielNorris18
This one is a bit obvious.. He’s a sports figure who lived in a van. I’m a Fantasy Sports Radio Producer who lived in a van. Umm.. Yeah, we are basically related. No matter what he orders I’d probably gift him with the GSI Java Drip Portable Coffee System. It’s great for off the grid livin’.
1. Matt Pinfield - TV/Radio Personality @mattpinfield
Also a Jersey native. He’s a wealth of knowledge when it comes to everything music. When I rode my bicycle from NJ to San Fran, I reached out to Matt about meeting up. Some scheduling conflicts on both ends prevented the meet up, but in 2019 I’m hoping we finally make this happen. I’d probably just offer him some SiriusXM community coffee at work, and pick his brain about the 80’s East Brunswick music scene. I imagine he likes his sugar with coffee and cream.
Who’s on your Top 5 list?
Drew Brees-NFL Quarterback, Les Claypool-Musician, Missy Elliott-Musician, Larry David-Comedian
