      things i've always expected from Ben Hicks: high fives, magnets, shark magnets, stupid Halloween costumes, pretending to be a bum anywhere, actually being a bum everywhere, awesome Halloween costumes, talking about sharks, talking about eagles, talking about bears, beer.

      things i never expected from Ben Hicks: a shark.

      sail on, Sailor.

      Thanks for donation Brad! Actually about 90% of the people who have helped me on my films have all come from CCC. I made many dear friends who are also extremely talented from that school, and I would not have been able to make any of my films had it not been for them.

      Shout out to Mrs. Barone! Thanks for the support D!

      Hi Ben, I dig your films and wanted to show my support. I will be attending CCC next fall and I hope my classmates are on a similar level as you.

      Ben, I'll take the kiss, but you can keep your tongue. (And please shave first...) If the female lead in "Kids" is anything like the one in peas vs carrots, this is a real festival contender.... Mamma Barone
