Brian Wilson 1942

“When I wake up in the morning, instead of going, ‘Oh, no, not another day,’ I’m going, ‘Oh, God, thank you for another day!’”

*When you wake up, steal this quote from Brian Wilson – “Oh, God, thank you for another day!”

BONUS: Audie Murphy 1925 – “Lead from the front.”


Quinton “Rampage” Jackson 1978

Most days would start with either a 7-mile run, or a few miles of sprints []

After his morning run, Jackson would hit the mat for two different sessions of fight training

Muay Thai or boxing [] and Jiu Jitsu or wrestling []           Then came hell. Hell started at 6 p.m.

Five minutes of work, a minute of rest, five times total [] [] [] [] []

“This was when I wished I wasn’t a fighter,” “Five different exercises one minute each? With no rest? Lord, those workouts can make a grown man cry.”

Then he’d hit the iron for a traditional weightlifting session []

*Train like ‘Rampage’ all day. Check off as you go.


Lionel Richie 1949

“Soul is a feeling. Not a color.”

*Listen to Lionel Richie and feel it in your SOUL.


John Goodman 1952 – watch The Gambler (2014)

“Somebody wants you to do something, fuck you. Boss pisses you off, fuck you! Own your house. Have a couple bucks in the bank,”

“A wise man’s life is based around fuck you. The United States of America is based on fuck you.”

*Have enough money in the bank to be able to say “fuck you” whenever it’s necessary. AKA “Fuck you money.” Watch John Goodman in The Gambler (2014) for motivation.


Nicole Kidman 1967 – watch The Hours

*Watch Kidman win an Oscar in The Hours.


Alex Guarnaschelli 1972 – Scallops in their shells and chocolate caramel cake

What was your most memorable meal? What, where, who? Details, please.

AG: “My mother cooked me a birthday dinner at home when I was 11 or 12. Scallops in their shells and my favorite chocolate caramel cake. All the recipes are in my new cookbook. Best meal I can ever remember eating.”

*Celebrate Alex Guarnaschelli’s birthday with her most memorable meal. Listen to the Beach Boys and Lionel Richie while making it and then enjoy it while watching a movie marathon of SuperbadThe Gambler, and The Hours.
