    Full Summary

    Startled as the camera drops in on him, a computer savvy Andrew W.K. checks his messages. Just what messages is he checking you might ask? Well, none other than the essential questions and concerns of his loyal viewers. He explains his purpose in offering advice and answers to those sometimes daunting, sometimes simple problems we might have. He then goes on to put his words to work.



    It turns out that two unrelated dudes living in the same area of Connecticut separately seek the wisdom of AWK, so he decides to pay them both a little visit. The first letter is from Eric. Eric is shy, not very outgoing and afraid that these actions will prevent him from following his dreams. He wants to know how he can be more outgoing and feel more confident about himself. The second letter is from Tom, who has a college radio show. He wants to know how he can make it kick ass, and asks Andrew if he can help him "pump up the volume."



    Andrew accepts this challenge, and heads off to meet Tom first. He gets to the studio, and assures an excited Tom that yes, he is a real person. Although the room is a little confined for the sake of headbanging, Andrew and Tom prepare to have a good time.



    Taking a little break from the main story, we go to Andrew sitting in a pizzeria answering his first quick question of the day. Justy from Maryland wants to know what he can do to get his big brother to stop beating him up all the time. Andrew tells him simply to either push back or remind his brother what's up and say: "We're brothers. Can you please stop punching me in the eye?"



    Back at the radio station, Andrew gets a chance to pick some music to play over the airwaves. His selection: Hatebreed. He and Tom let the headbanging begin, then move on to some high quality floorpunching. Andrew then says goodbye, assuring us that he had a "very exciting" time.



    Back in the pizzeria, Andrew answers another quick question. This one is from Kirk in Florida. A man of few words, he asks, "Boxers or briefs?" Andrew starts off by giving his family undergarment heritage, explaining how both his dad and his brother wear boxers, but then indulges that he just can't do it. Picking up a dirty napkin, Andrew gives a visual example of how he gets all twisted and crumbled up in boxers. You might lose your appetite thinking about that, but one thing's for sure: Andrew didn't! Noshing on a good piece of pie with "whipped feeling," Andrew has to get up and give it a pie dance, but doesn't have to leave the plate behind.



    Now it's off to Eric's house. Upon arrival, Andrew reads the letter back to Eric, asks him what his dreams are and finds out that they couldn't be any more up his alley. Eric wants to be a rock star, but says he limits himself by being shy and not approaching people. Andrew points out the key to breaking through this dilemma: "If your desire to be a rocker outweighs your desire to be shy, it'll eradicate itself…You're very capable, it's just a matter of how badly you want it." For a man who deserves to have his own book of motivational quotes, he truly outdoes himself by closing the episode with "This ain't rocket science, it's living your life!"

    Exclusive letters of the week, only for mtv2.com:



    Sanjay Tenassi / Santa Monica, CA


    Andrew, I could really go for some nachos right about now. Could you hook me up?



    Dear Sanjay, I love nachos! Especially with jalapenos! Sometimes I'll put meat and tomatoes and other stuff on there, but I love nachos when it's just cheese and jalapenos! I don't have any nachos right now, and I would love some…so the real question is: can you hook me up???
    Your Friend, Andrew W.K.

    Tim Gregory / Meshoppe, PA

    Is 25 too old to make it somewhere in the music industry?



    Dear Tim, I certainly hope not! I just turned 25 a few days ago!!!

    James Cook / Orlando, FL


    What's the best way to pay off college debt? ...I'll be over $50K in the hole.



    Dear James, It sucks to be in debt. Student loans are one of the biggest scams of all time. It should be free to go to school! Everyone should be able to go to school for free, and everyone should be able to go to the hospital for free…but since that's not how things work (yet), you'll just have to keep chipping away at that huge $50K. If it's really important to you to be out of debt, then just put all your money towards it…or be prepared to be in debt for a long time. I hope you make a lot of money and pay it all back!!! And then never get in debt again!
    Your Friend, Andrew W.K.
