Meet the Author

Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, this all-star catcher for Sunrise Little League was raised on hot dogs and apple pie, and always stands up for the national anthem at ball games. Rob attended UC Santa Barbara, where he majored in Religious Studies and would have gotten a Ph.D. in the field had he not found something else to do. He created and published Caffeine, an alternative arts magazine, and edited the Caffeine anthology, Scream When You Burn (Incommunicado). He's designed over 80 CD covers for bands you've never heard of, and has designed & written games for Mattel, including the "Men Are From Mars" game. Rob currently lives in Hollywood with his wife Christine, where he writes books and designs box art for Backyard Wrestling videos.

This former Cub Scout, Little Leaguer and Valley Boy is a devout fan of mac & cheese, and received an "A" in U.S. History in high school. After graduating from UC Berkeley, where he studied nothing in particular, David created and edited the hardcore hip-hop magazine, Rap Sheet, where he interviewed and was threatened by some of the nation's leading rappers. Currently residing in Venice, CA, he pays his bills by writing trite yet award-winning ad copy, and by contributing to various music and entertainment magazines, including Hollywood Reporter, LA New Times and a bunch of web sites that just went out of business. David also writes brilliantly witty books with Rob, and watches a lot of Backyard Wrestling videos.

Read an Excerpt

Reason One:



Freedom



Freedom isn't just another word for nothing left to lose; it's what this whole damn country's about. It's what makes us great -- and differentiates us from the pack. In 1776, we told the British to piss off, we'll do it ourselves. And for the last two-hundred-plus years, not only have we continued to do it ourselves, we've evolved from a band of ragtag insurgents in funny-looking hats into the global superpower.

We have the freedom to do basically anything we want, as long as it doesn't mess with anyone else's lifestyle or inalienable rights. In other words, you can say, "Screw you, Mr. President!" (which would probably get you killed in some countries). We also have the freedom to buy smutty mags in the market and beer on Sunday, honk at hot chicks, and generally make asses out of ourselves anytime we see fit.
