Rob Lee has a lot of opinions, many of which can’t be contained to Robcast so here’s Robservations.
Hey maaaaaan, Rob Lee here and I’ve gotten something for the first time.
Today is Valentine’s day and usually I don’t get to in depth into my personal relationship but today I must write. I’ve written about girls I’ve dated in the past and I’ve detailed relationships or situationships – say it with me – situat-ion-ships – in the past. So, this is going to be a bit different.
It’s a Jungle out there
Mtr the Network has been my longest relationship. It has outlived two long-term relationships. In its infancy MTR was just Mastermind Team’s Robcast and I did the show with my girlfriend and he cousin. It was an ok show – some of those early episodes are dreadful but I learned my voice. When the relationship ended with my cohost and girlfriend, Tiffany. The show was in limbo – this was a period where I took a break for a few months and then linked up with Torin & Dann.
This was in 2010. The show changed and was more focused on weird news and I was just hanging with my friends. Eventually I met a girl named Theresa and we dated for a few years. That relationship ended and MTR nearly did as well. So for the next 2 years, I dated frivolously. I was tired, drained and heartbroken. I was tired of experiencing that and aspects of the show suffered – namely that I wasn’t regularly producing episodes. Once I committed to non-commitment I was able to get back to dating. Oftentimes, I would talk and even blog about relationships. Mtrocast started as me and Rob Phoenix talking about online dating and relationships. Also, there is a Oneshot I did with Yolanda called ‘Rob is a thot’. That was an interesting time in the jungle.
A Love Supreme
In reality land, I worked at a college and under my nose while the aforementioned jungle shit was happening, a woman who would eventually be my friend, then lover, then salvation was working in a polka dot dress. Kumari, the Ku, my girlface, is great she’s helped me grow so much as a creator and as a person. I’m very happy and I’m taking more risks than I have ever when I comes to dating, creating and relating (I don’t know what I mean here but it rhymes and rules of three for comedy.) Mostly, I work routines and work out my own philosophy on life with her. That brings me to today I was at the current reality land job and I get a notice that there was a package for me – flowers. I was completely surprised and had no idea what it was – initially I thought stalker, ex-lover or secret admirer. All of which gave me a touch of anxiety. I opened it and read the card which reads “Even men like flowers” – which is something I said in conversation with Ku. I was a wonderful surprise and put a huge smile on my penis…I mean face.
Happy Valentine’s Day
