My 2001 online website profile

I just recently learned about the archive “wayback” feature to see old indexed websites. So I decided to take a look at my original version of This thing goes back to about 2001, when I first purchased the domain. On hindsight, I realize that I started this writing and blogging thing long ago enough to have been a real authority. Yet, here we are, I dropped the ball and missed the bus.

However, it’s really cool to be able to look back and see what I was thinking and writing back then. I used to have a diary from when I was a kid, and I misplaced it over the decades. I really wish I had access to that. Anyway, check out my old profile on the “about” page.

How did you get the name ARod? I got the name back when I was in Air Force basic training. All my buddies used to call me ARod. So it stuck.

How old are you? I am 23 years old. I can’t believe I’m just about to become 24 years old the end of April.
(I’m about to turn 40. WTF?)

How much do you weigh? I’m a bodybuilder, so my weight varies with the seasons. I range from 165pds lean to 190pds not that lean.
(I’m just about to hit 190 now, and struggling to get there. LOL.)

How tall are you? I’m not a tall dude. Military marked me as 67 inches tall, AKA 5’7″. My friends say I’m shorter, F*ck them…

Where do you live? I live in New York City.

Do you work? Yes, I am an underpaid Microsoft Windows NT System Administrator.

What do you like to do? I love to workout, I enjoy dancing, and more than anything ARod love’s listening to music.

What is your Fav Party Spot? That would be Webster Hall.
