My ex-girlfriend and I were on our way to the Radiohead show at the Frank Erwin Center, so we caught a cab at the Marriott right across the street from my place downtown. It happened to be Bob’s cab, so as we start making our way to the show, we start talking about music and art, and it quickly becomes obvious that we had a lot of stuff in common (art, music, writing, etc etc....we even share the same birthday!). While talking he starts to tell me of the book he had recently published called Barstool Poetry. My girl and I were instantly floored. Absolutely loved the idea and bought a copy in his cab right before he dropped us off at the show. Read it the next day and was instantly hooked. We kept in touch, connected on Facebook, became friends and I’ve been to all of his monthly Barstool Poetry nights ever since."  ~Carlos. Austin, TX
