Brian G Randles

RockStar

I was born and raised in Louisville, KY.

I like soccer, snowboarding, hulu, surfing, quick and witty people, reading, netflix, crossword puzzles, making people laugh, bourbon, drinking bourbon while betting on horses, writing and listening to a wide array of music.

I love the beach and am so happy to be living in San Diego. That being said, I am 2000 miles away from home and do miss seeing my friends and fam on a regular basis.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I can't write about just one unique thing or experience, wouldn't be fair to the others.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Same answer for this as question 1. However, I know vague and mysterious responses can get lame so I will say moving to a new city (SD) and starting from scratch.
How do you define cool?
Not being defined by cool.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Keep your mind wandering and wondering.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The randomness.
What is your favorite trend?
Right now? The recreation of animated characters. Super Mario with that put-upon, blue-collar look on his face... classic. I want that portrait hanging up over my oven when I am cooking. Also the video of the PooTrap... absolutely ridiculous lol.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
My advice would be to write about stuff you like. Even if it doesn't get published, you will still have fun.
How do you reset to be creative?
I like to search a random word and see what comes up. As for a creative reset, I take my brain out and blow the dust off of it... just like an old school Nintendo.
What inspires or excites you?
New ways of looking at old ideas.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Teleport application on the iPhone.
