Fun Friday: Ron West
August 30, 2013 § Leave a comment
He’s a monster! As is the company’s mascot, Beau Sheep.
(Aside: Don’t be confused; the name rhymes with Bo’ Peep, but she wasn’t gangster enough to hang.)
DP: Mountains or Beach?
RW: “I’m from the mountains. Mountains definitely. Sand gets everywhere and it’s annoying and you just burn on the beach. The mountains are beautiful. Streams. Trees. Animals. Breeze. Beauty.”
DP: What’s your favorite pizza topping?
RW: “Chicken. Chicken on anything makes it better.”
I wonder if we put chicken on a beach…
Rap artist Macklemore (also of Irish descent) may or may not share Ron’s love of mountains and chicken, but there are other similarities. Ron West names Macklemore as an inspiration, a pop culture icon to whom he can relate, because of his ability to create a powerful platform of universal acceptance. A message Ron hopes to convey through conscious hip-hop: “Your differences are not weaknesses, but strengths. Exploit your differences. Be a Monster.”
