Letters To Elon.

We introduced a new segment on The Justin Brady Show on Saturday, called “Letters To Elon.” Every week, I’ll write a new letter to Elon Musk about how impressed and proud I am of his accomplishments and I’ll post them all to this page along with the audio segments. I’m a huge Elon Musk, Tesla and Space X fan.

I’ll just keep doing this until I get Elon Musk for an interview, get a cease and desists letter, or I sacrifice all my pride and become a laughing stock.


Letters To Elon, 1st Edition (4/27/19)

In case you didn’t know, Musk recently came to an agreement with the SEC on his Twitter usage, and in the same week, he launched full autonomous capability in Tesla cars, with the added goal of allowing Tesla owners to have their cars rideshare autonomously, picking up passengers while they aren’t using their car.

He’s been mocked by so-called “automation experts” for his ambitious goals, which is not unusual for him. “Experts” have been constantly telling Musk he can’t do things. He does them anyway. Because he certainly has his haters out there, hopefully, this will lift his spirits. The letter reads as follows:

Dear Elon,

Congratulations on launching the full autonomous capability on your Tesla electric cars. I’m so proud of what you have been able to achieve. I realize it’s been hard work and people haven’t been easy to work with, especially those horrid SEC folks, and those holier than thou automation experts, but… they’re just jealous. I’m writing to let you know we are proud, and we are pulling for you.

Love, Justin

PS: Can you come to Des Moines for an interview? Ok-thanks.


Letters To Elon, 2nd Edition (5/4/19)

This weeks letter reads:

Dear Elon,
I hear you are asking your friends for money to keep Tesla growing strong. I know you’ve taken a lot of flack for this, but I believe it’s a decision that had to be done, and I’m proud you exhibited the confidence to make it. I hope others will see what I see in you, and give you the money you need to make your company big and strong. I’ve included $5 to help out. Please don’t spend it on candy.

Love, Justin
PS – Can you come to DSM for an interview? Thanks


Letters To Elon, 3rd Edition (5/11/19)

This weeks letter reads:

Dear Elon, I heard that you are finally down to working 80 hours a week instead of previously working 100 hours per week. I’m really concerned about your health after working so much and I hope you are getting rest and eating enough. I support you, and hope your workload will taper off soon in the very near future.

Love, Justin

PS – Can you come to DSM for an interview, I’ll even book you a quiet hotel room for a night of sleep? Thanks


Letters To Elon, 4th Edition (5/18/19)

This weeks letter to Elon reads:

Dear Elon, it sounds like unless you make some drastic changes, Tesla will be out of money in 10 months. You should be encouraged to know I don’t believe that will happen. You are a go-getter, you made the worlds first practical electric car, the fastest production car on the market and I know you will find a way to press on. BTW, Is there any way you can retrieve that Tesla Roadster you launched into space? It would look nice in my garage.

Love, Justin

PS – Can you come to DSM for an interview in 10 months?


Letters To Elon, 5th Edition (5/25/19)

This weeks letter to Elon reads.

Dear Elon,

I must say I’m impressed by Tesla being on track to surpass your vehicle delivery record of 90,700, which was just set in the fourth quarter of 2018. It looks like you’re on track to make the most Tesla cars you ever have in a quarter and I encourage you to keep pushing! Also, I am excited to see you get close to your goal of making 1000 model 3 cars per day and am looking forward to a record quarter.

Love, Justin

PS – Should you awkwardly make 1001 cars per day, I am more than happy to take one so you can hit that an even number. You can bring it up to Des Moines when you visit for your interview with me. Thanks


Letters To Elon, 6th Edition (6/1/19)

Letters To Elon 6th Edition

This weeks letter to Elon reads:

Dear Elon,

I’m so glad tours of your facility are once again available to your loyal fans and customers. Hopefully, in the very near future, I can come down and check it out for myself. It would also be nice to build that Iron Man Suit that some Twitter users have requested.

Love, Justin

PS – Can you fly iron man style to Des Moines for your interview? At top speed, it would likely only take about an hour to get here. Ok Thanks


Letters To Elon, 7th Edition (6/8/19)

This weeks letter to Elon reads:

Dear Elon,

I’m blown away by your plans for the electric pickup truck. The 400 to 500 miles range is impressive and I’m also stoked about the Dual Motor All-wheel-drive powertrain with dynamic suspension. The 300,000 lbs of towing capacity is sheer madness. Best of all, I think you can really use it to haul, and get rid of, all the BS the gasoline truck people will throw at you.

Love, Justin

PS – When you come to Des Moines for an interview, can you bring one with you? We can take it to an Iowa farm and put it to a real test.


Letters To Elon, 8th Edition (6/15/19)

This weeks letter to Elon reads:

I heard of your plan to use Space X rockets to launch satellites into space to give internet access to all. I did hear that astronomers are concerned it will mess up their view of the night sky, but I think
they just got that idea from Pixar’s Wallee movie when the space ship crashes through all the satellites orbiting the earth. Don’t they realize that was just an animated movie?

Love, Justin

PS – Could you only file for a restraining order, AFTER you come to Des Moines for an interview?


Letters To Elon, 9th Edition (6/22/19)

This weeks letter to Elon reads:

Dear Elon,
You’re such a boring guy. I watched the video of your Tesla Model 3 do 127 MPH underground in your boring company tunnel and must say, I want to see these things everywhere. But can I make a suggestion? Perhaps Tesla’s can have built in tea makers, so we can enjoy a cup of tea and catch up on a good book whilst whisking away in your tunnels? Just a thought.
Love, Justin


PS – There isn’t much congestion in Des Moines, so you shouldn’t need a tunnel when you come for an interview. Ok, thanks


Letters To Elon, 10th Edition (6/29/19)

This weeks letter to Elon reads:

Dear Elon,
Happy Birthday! For your birthday yesterday on June 28th! I know you were working on your birthday, in order to hit your second quarter goals, but I sincerely hope you got the opportunity to at least eat some cake. And the digital party that Twitter threw you was cool too. 

Love, Justin

PS – My birthday is also in June. Perhaps we can celebrate together in Des Moines when you come for an interview.

Letters to Elon, 11th Edition (7/13/19)

Dear Elon,
I am extremely excited to finally control things with my brain due to your new Neurolink company. If the rumors are true, this technology may allow people to operate a 3rd arm! Finally, Americans without Tesla autopilot can safely eat a sandwich, hold their beverage, and drive at the same time! (This would be really helpful when eating fries that need to be dipped in ketchup.) What’s more American than that? You, sir, are a genius.


Love, Justin.

PS – Please come to Des Moines for an interview. This show is endorsed by Rob Sand and Governor Hickenlooper. I didn’t’ ask them but, I mean, it probably is.

Letters to Elon, 12th Edition (7/20/19)

Dear Elon,
Your new Neurolink technology sounds amazing and I can’t wait to finally control robots with my mind. Perhaps, if this technology really takes off, I would have no need for my body at all. I could just place my brain in a robot, kinda like Krang in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I could charge that robot body with your next-gen car charge tech that adds 75 miles of range in 5 minutes.

Love, Justin

PS – Please come to Des Moines for an interview. We have no robot suits, but I’m here. And… I guess I like robots.

Letters to Elon, 13th Edition (8/3/19)

Dear Elon,
I just had the Tesla Owners of Iowa Club on my show to discuss their riding event. Seems like their group has a lot of growth and they are going to be giving Iowans a chance to ride in their own cars, due to our state’s problem with innovation and new car models. I’m telling you this because I knew you’d be proud of me.


Love, Justin


PS – Please come to Des Moines for an interview. I’ll tell the Tesla Owner of Iowa Club to come meet you at the studio.

Letters to Elon, 14th Edition (8/17/19)

Dear Elon, I’m writing this to you from the great Iowa state fair. Did you know that we have a wind turbine on the fairgrounds that provides enough power to run all 11 days of the Iowa State Fair? I’d imagine it can also power quite a few Tesla’s as well.

Love, Justin


PS: When you come to our studio for an interview you can plug your Tesla into it. Or at least, we can ask.

Letters To Elon, 15th Edition (8/24/19)

Dear Elon,

I must confess I’m angry that Apple basically copied your Boring Company logo for their new original show on the Apple TV. Who do they think they are anyway? Maybe they are just following the words of their leader who said, “Good artists copy; great artists steal.” Perhaps, just to teach them a lesson, you should just make a cell phone.

Love, Justin

PS: Please come to our Des Moines studio for an interview. I won’t steal your logo.

<AUDIO COMING SOON>
