I had the great pleasure to meet this 6 year old man pictured in my mirror hat. Here is a link from his great smooth pacing performance from America’s Got Talent. His confidence outpaces the finest pace car. His wit is faster than the fastest drag car. His words to me with extreme sincerity after his great performance warmed my heart! Hey Nathan I owe you a bow tie per our discussion?

Nice Moves!

SXSW huge music festival is in Austin. Lots of interesting people with interesting moves and beauty. It has been another fantastic week with compliments and playing my yak horn. Look for compliments tomorrow on South Congress starting about noon till dark. I was able to play for the President of the United States as his motorcade drove by I was only 15 feet away as I did my Presidential performance. My new great neighbor Mark Holcomb filmed it. I will let the videos do the talking this post. Thank you for checking in. Oh I forgot to mention, I’m making my first secret compliment trip to Los Angeles, California. Looking forward to complimenting LA for 3 days.

Compliment Man “Feels REAL GOOOD”!

Magic continues to happen as a direct result of giving unbiased wholesome compliments to everyone I meet. Saying kind words directly enhances our own being directly as well. I cannot emphasize it enough to be kind to everyone. My typical day is as beautiful as the smiles in the picture above. Seeing people happy and smiling is beautiful! If everyone in the world smiled the glow would be warmer and brighter than the sun itself. I believe we will see the day when the world smiles together and we care about everyone.

Everywhere I go people are smiling and giving me their best. On a recent compliment adventure on one of my popular stops where I set up on South Congress in Austin, Texas people started firing compliments at me for a few minutes before I could fire one back. It was a great feeling receiving compliments as well.

Big Smiles, and Big magical things continue to fuel my drive to give compliments. I’m currently looking for a nice venue in Austin to bring The Compliment Man on stage, yes Compliment Comedy! Positive feel good comedy with bizarre guests and recorded video footage of the infinite things in Austin that compliment everyone.

Thank you for reading,

Compliment Man MOONED! The Sun Shined anyway!

I took this video above shortly after being mooned on a nice bright sunshine day on South Congress in Austin, Texas. You can see I’m somewhat speechless in the video. It happen after complimenting this persons friend and then him. A large group of people were in front of Allen boots and while walking this person drops his pants exposing the moon during a nice beautiful afternoon. He than looks back and asks if I’m going to compliment the moon. I do compliment him now on his ability to keep his walking stride without pause as he uncovered and recovered the daytime moon. Very well done. I refrained from complimenting an exposed tail end. I never compliment tail ends anyway as I prefer to look into the person and see what great qualities I can see and feel so all compliments will be genuine.

Momentum continues to build for compliments. Many street vendors are giving compliments as part of their pitch and even ask me if it’s OK. Of course it is OK. It is great! We all appreciate genuine compliments. I continue to meet awesome people with great suggestions to help compliments expand beyond the borders. Many of these suggestions I have taken to heart and I’m currently implementing them to enhance the compliment experience for as many people as possible. I’m very excited planning the action to expand the boundaries of compliments. Very soon some super cool inspiring videos will help launch new compliment formats. You will be seeing changes on the website and announced on twitter @saykindwords as each new idea is implemented.

The smiles I receive from giving compliments is so hugely rewarding I wish everyone could experience this wealthy reward of human beauty. Look forward to another great week giving compliments. Enjoy every moment! If you woke up today it is already a GREAT Positive DAY! You”re SUPER-FABULOUS!!!

Festival for Nuts -2015 Pecan Fall festival

Compliments at Pecan Festival
Compliments at Pecan Festival

 

A festival for nuts so I knew I had to go. I could not find any nuts though, I love pecans, cashews, walnuts and almonds. The festival had endless tents of cool art, things and people.

The challenge to give compliments to so many people would exhaust me within 20 minutes. I would than have to pause and remind myself to breathe and restart. It was a blast of fun and smiles. I continued to give rapid fire compliments for approximately 4+ hours. Many people high fived me, some hugs and others brought me a Popsicle and water.

 

Police officer writing “The Compliment Guy” a ticket in Austin, Texas.

Officer interpreting the law applying it to my use of a megaphone.

On 10/11/15 The Compliment Guy was given a ticket under an “outdoor music permit ordinance 9-2-11. The officer approached me earlier in the day as he barged out of Allen boots where he was moonlighting as security. He took the time to print out the ordinance and highlight with yellow marker the clause on megaphones. I told him it does not apply to me and I cannot even get a permit for what I do as I tried months ago when you told me I needed to  before.

On the 6th of November I”m confident the case will be thrown out for 5 reasons:

1-I’m not a music venue, I’m not made of brick and mortar.

2-I have an email from the Mayor’s office stating I do not need a permit for what I do, nor is their a permit available for what I do.

3- 1st amendment right for free speech, free assembly with a public cause. My cause is seeing people smile, and feel good.

4- I was not playing music nor breaking sound decibel laws.

5- No one called in to complain, nor did I disturb the peace. If anything I helped keep the peace by helping people feel good.

Well lets see what happens on the 6th. If for some reason it is not thrown out a jury trial will be requested and I will compliment everyone in the room with my opening statement. Is it not the job of a police officer to keep the peace and if so than I should have been allowed to keep doing what I love, Giving Compliments with my megaphone.

UPDATE: I went to the court house on the 6th and was told by the clerk prosecuting attorney does not work on Fridays. I was told previously I could see the prosecutor on my ticket date. I’m now scheduled for December 1 to meet with the prosecuting attorney.

Oh well based on my past experience with anything government related this is to be expected. No big deal, will deal with it on the 1st if no glitches.

 

Super Human Hugs received by Compliment MAN. WOW!

Everyone brushed their teeth today.
Everyone brushed their teeth today.

 

Compliments again on South Congress and the encounter with the super human hug group led by Jenna Jasso.  I took a pause break to receive genuine super hugs from the group pictured above. A super human hug is not rushed and connects the hearts of both huggers.

I was also used for a prop by Ron (on the left in pic above)as he displayed his extensive variety of hugs. I learned some new hug styles and realize I may need a portable shower nearby if Ron comes by again to shower off his extensive hug sweat. Thank you for the hugs and adding your great smiles to the Million Smile Project.
