Sequoia Slentz profile in 944 Magazine : Although the world CleanBox inhabits is a far cry from the glossy photo spreads of beautiful people getting their rocks off that fill the mag’s pages, the recognition is still appreciated. Even though we despise the types of people who are into the magazine: the Armani and cologne wearing set, the bitchy, fake-titted chicks who won’t give us the time of day, we are ready and willing to accept all publicity. Plus, Sequoia and I got some free tequila at the photo shoot. Nothing beats a semi-solid excuse to drink hard liquor at noon.

Figure out a way to push through the dips by reinventing, pivoting, and just keep going. Beyond that, they must value their family, friends, and community. Thank them for being supportive. Always remember who was there to help you out because they will be there for the long run. Understand what worked for you in the past may not work for you in the future. The methods that got you where you are, but they may not take you to where you want to be.

Killers of Comedy & Sequoia Slentz : We travel around the country with the Killers, meeting super fans everywhere we go. When you hang out with Beetlejuice before a Killers show, you feel like you’re hanging with freak show royalty. Everyone recognizes him and everyone loves him. Within five minutes of the Killers roast, two thirds of the audience had been directly insulted. The other third stared in shock at the filth that was spewing from the podium. The men were trying to decide if they were honor bound to defend their wives. Fifty years ago these same people would have lynched Yucko.
