About

This is it, this is my biography. The story of Jarod Kintz begins now.

Let’s knock out the trivial first. I was born in Salt Lake City on March 5th, 1982. Now that you know my birthday, please feel free to get me birthday presents. Notice how I used the plural, presents? More than one gift would be greatly appreciated. Appropriate gifts include gold coins, bars of silver, and large tracts of land (preferably beachfront property). Or you could just buy me a drink—soda, natural, because I don’t drink either alcohol or high fructose corn syrup.

Skipping ahead a few years, and a few hundred miles, we come to Denver, Colorado. For a few years I attended Mackintosh Academy. In the second grade, along with English, I studied French, Spanish, and Japanese. Out of all those language classes, I remember one word: Andrea. That was my girlfriend at the time, the one who left me for my best friend. I guess I remember two words, as I remember his name too, but his name is almost sacred, as a name that shall never be uttered.

Right after second grade ended my family moved to Jacksonville, Florida. It was Jacksonville that I would come to know as home, and would attend the rest of my schooling until college.

At this point I was a mediocre student. I believe I had a perfect 2.0 grade point average from third grade until I graduated from high school. My favorite classes were art, P.E., and lunch. Oh, is one of those not a class? No way—I believe art is still considered a class.

When not cracking jokes in class, I would be doing one of three things: drawing, passing notes, or sleeping. In high school I started to not only be mentally absent from class, but physically gone too. I’d skip class like a flat rock skips across a pond.

After high school, it was on to college. In all I have attended six colleges. I bounced around like a dodgeball on a trampoline. If you count the college classes I took starting my junior year of high school, then I got my four-year degree in nine years. And if you’re going to do something, you might as well do it at least twice as well as everybody else—or at least at least twice as long.

I graduated with an English degree from the University of Florida, but I took creative writing classes from both UF and Florida State University. All through college I fancied myself a fancy man, because I was an aspiring writer. Mostly I wrote t-shirt slogans and other pithy things. In the spring of 2005 I did manage to sell a line of t-shirts to Urban Outfitters.

That is my lone success in life. Seriously. Well, so far anyway. But my story is just beginning. I plan on failing my way to success. I have been rejected by literary agents, publishers, MFA programs, and all sorts of women. But still I keep writing.

I have written many “books,” and I use the term books loosely. Mostly they are just compilations of my random thoughts and one-liners. But I like writing them, and people seem to like reading them. And that’s what it’s all about, right?

All my books are self-published, either through iUniverse or the wonderful Amazon Kindle program. I encourage everybody to write. Share yourself with the world. If there is one thing I like to impress upon people, it’s that you can do it, even if you can’t. Just keep can’ting until eventually you can. And you can quote me on that.

        Jarod “the man” keep rocking on with the sandwich quotes. They’re the best I’ve encountered yet. I came across them when I was searching for some inspirational sandwich quotes.
        I got rid of my social media page about a year ago, because it’s mostly filled with ultra sounds, flowers, conspiracies, cries for attention, personal problems and just nonsense that doesn’t do what we should do, be inspired and along with that and most importantly smile or laugh. As I turned mine back on, I started the first day with “Eating a sandwich.
        Just trying to fit in.” Because that’s what I feel in a sense everyone’s saying, in every post. Since then I’ve referenced or said something about sandwiches. Friends that are witty, love to laugh have caught on. It’s only the beginning. Check it #tryingtofitin
        I’ll be sure to continue to check in with your jams.
        Keep making those words into an sandwich inspiring of laughter.

    As long as I cab remember , and I’ve been on earth a long time ( almost too long to remember yesterday), I have sought quotes. So, I call you,Jarod Kintz, my friend. You snatched my knit one as I was to pearl two. Anyway, I copy quotes in my journal, only the ones I care to reread. My birthday is in just two days, and a gift arrived ( don’t you love it already It can’t be a bar of gold or silver, but like you…I have a feeling…) I searched to find your quote to send via e-mail today: “I don’t know what’s in the box, but I love it. Unopened gifts contain hope.” from THIS BOOK TITLE IS INVISIBLE. I just want to say, thank you too. As I wrote in a blog, to receive is to have already given…( I know you love words as I do) and the giving is in being integral. I am grateful to all who give their best worth, and you are a star, keep shinning. Buddha is said to have uttered: ‘Three things cannot be hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”…Keep up the good work sir Kintz :-)…

    Hiya Jarrod, I’ve been trying to find out more about you as there’s no Wiki site for you, often when I’m looking for the right things to say in regards to my Social/cultural angst & just about everything else that grinds my gears I come accross your material. My FB status’s are littered with your witty ( in the esoteric sense cos I’m sure not everyone gets it & I know that most of them don’t get me) quotes & one-liners. I find when I read your stuff it reminds me a little of a great literary hero of mine….Charles Bukowski. Any way I thought I’d just hello & if there is anything of yours you could recommend id be greatful.
    please excuse any bad spelling, grammar or punctuation as I’m just a semi-literate London boy who’s read a few books, listened to a few wise men & opened few doors of perception ( usually when I’ve been stoned or just incandescent with rage )

I’m trying to write a screenplay based on the musings & observations of an angst ridden apathetic young man in 1950s London with a back drop of the burgeoning mod jazz scene (coltrane another one of my Hero’s ) & I’ve looked for inspiration in Bukowski’s world view.

    I first saw one of your quotes at the beginning of the movie STARVE which came on SyFy earlier today. I found it so interesting & entertaining, the quote not the movie, that I wanted to know who would say such a thing. So I looked you up & read your 29? Quotes, which I also found entertaining. Yay Google! I think next I’ll look to read your book. So I wanted to say Thank You! For I am not easily entertained! Keep writing🙂

    Hey, While stumbling upon some of your nice quotes in goodreads, I thought you must be an aged man and not existing now.(Seriously, the quotes were mature and kinda funny). Then googled to reach this page. Wow, Your story is of an average man, but what about the rest? Try writing the hurdles you have crossed and the success you have achieved as a writer so that it can be an inspiration. Hats off Jarod.

    No seriously you’re not famous yet? I googled “I’m Ugly” for pure research purposes and came across numerous quotes from you… seems to be a trend here to find you on Goodreads but whatever, I like to think I’m original. Anyways, I haven’t the faintest clue, hint or idea as to how to encompass just how funny you are. But then again I’ve been told that I find anything funny. But that’s just it, if I DON’T find you funny then you must be a terrible bore and I would wonder just how black your soul was… either way I’m rambling and you probably haven’t the time to listen to me babble on and on. But cheers to being funny and a rabid talkatyper like myself. And seriously. You’re good.

    This was a good first read of the day and week. I love the fact that you are okey of doing stuff at least twice or twice as long. I’ve always been that way but never actually recognized it or brought it up in a conversation. I’ve always tried to be strict but in last year have realized that I’m just not that person and I need my time and it’s nice to see that there are others. And that those others can just write about it and make my reading experience so effortless. Thanks and loving your quotes, that’s actually how I came across your stuff. I bought earrings that look like little hand guns and was looking for a gun quote to post on Facebook with picture and there was one from George Washington, one from Dalai Lama and then about 50 of yours and that got my attention. Anyway, with love from Finland. Tonight I’ll be reading your book. -Carina
