Don't forget us little people when you get your invite from Oprah.

Christian said...

You sir... are the rockingest rocker. However, I will not fully acknowledge that you've reached the pinnacle of greatness until the Mulkey Brothers are mentioned in a poem.. or, Rocky King... I could live with that.

Paul said...

What would you say if the barbed wire match featuring Rugged Richie Dye and Kenny "Hot Body" Arden is featured in the memoir?

C. Dale said...

OMG, Congratulations! See, I knew someone would pick up a memoir if you wrote it. Yu are so going to end up on Oprah...

Leslie said...

I think the first time I ever read your blog, you had posted a section of the memoir. I thought it rocked.

Congrats, Paul. I'm looking forward...

Congratulations! After the Oprah appearance, I think the screenplay adaption is next, right? :)

A certain Spider-Man actor's manager did request the manuscript. I kid you not.

Huzzah, huzzah! I will teach your book in my autobiography class the next time I teach it!

Karri Paul said...

OMG, Paul, you're THA SHIT! And I'll second Cynthia's "Spin that web!" (an expression we should permanently replace "Congratulations" with, don't you think?)

Congratulations, Paul,

Though I knew for some time, I'm happy that it's all official, now.

Many, many congrats. I'm one of a few friends who kind of lurk on your blog--we're big fans of your work, but we don't really post much here. This, however, is a great reason to. Exciting stuff.
