Nicholas Brendon audioblog update Feb. 9, 2008
Hellooo everybody. How are we? It’s Nicky, calling from beautiful Venice, California. It’s a magnificent day. The sky is blue-ish. The sea is a brownish-gray. And the birds are flying, with their wings. As birds are ought to do.
Well, it’s been a while since we have talked, and I know that you have a lot to say. So I will, um, listen. OK? And… start talking.
[long pause] *heavy sigh*
I, uh, I can’t hear you, maybe you should speak up a little bit, so, OK…. On the count of three … 1… 2… 3.
Yeah … this is really rude. I call to talk to you and you’re not talking to me at all. Hmm, I am fascinated by this. Maybe I’ll do the talking then. Fine, I’ll show you. Well, here we go:
I guess the strike is about to be over, from what I understand. I think they’re talking today, and I think people might be going back to work on Monday, I think. Um, we got a phone call from Criminal Minds and they asked for my availability for the first episode back, which is a good thing. And we’ll find out about Super Cat, I think, soon, which is great, good.
I’ve seen some movies that … blew me away. I don’t know if I talked about this before, or if I saw it in between, but … a little movie called The Orphanage, and if I talked about it before, I sincerely apologize, but Crikey McNike, that this thing is… I saw it twice in a week, alright? And I don’t even speak the language of the film, cause it’s Spanish, but I did speak the language of the film, which is just universally great.
Also, I really enjoyed a little film called There Will Be Blood. Um, you know, ironically — not that much blood. A lot of oil. But not, not much blood. And a fantastic performance by the guy who did My Left Foot, Daniel Day-Lewis. He’s just… he does a little bit of a [goes into accent] Sean Connery. Sean … Sean … Sean Connery. Shh-… Sean. Sean Connery. … Shh…or is it Roger Moore he’s doing? I’m not sure, but it’s a Bond.
Speaking of bonds, how are you all? I feel like this conversation has bonded us, though you didn’t say as much as I was hoping you would say. Things that… make me go, “Hmmm.”
What else is going on? How about that Super Bowl? Amazing. I didn’t… we don’t have a football team here, but if we did, it wouldn’t be the Giants. I was rooting for the Pats, but … what a fantastic situation that happened there.
So I think what else is going on. Ummm, I am going to Disneyland tomorrow with my little brother. You know, I changed his diapers but yet, he’s — 23? Actually, I changed his diapers last week, which is strange, and that’s a different blog.
Um, I think I’m getting a phone call, hold on. [pause] Oh, I am, it’s my manager. Uh, OK, well I’m going to say ‘bye to that… well no… OK… nope, I’ll call him back in a second. Because I think he just hung up on me.
Uh, oh, gosh, I was in Orlando, that was really nice. I’m hoping to do some more meet-and-greets in the future. It was really, really fun to be down there and the people could not have been nicer.
I hope this blog finds you all healthy, wealthy and wise. Wealthy spiritually, and, with cash, too. I mean, why not? Why not be happy spiritually and with cash. I mean, you know that’s…. *dog barks in background*… Hey! … Hey… Emma … Nah-uh … Hey… No… Little Chihuahua over here, doing a … puffing her chest. Emma! … Good girl. She’s got a crush on me… it’s uh… Em-ma! …. It’s kinda weird. But I haven’t acted on it yet. Yet, I mean she’s only five pounds, but I get lonely…
Anyway guys, I promise to do this sooner because what I’ve done, I’ve put it into my phone so I can just call. I can call from the car if I want to… I might just do that. I might just travel around town and take you on a tour of… of my head. And what’s going on in there. Um, right now it’s a little civil war going on, right now. We’ve got the Confederates. They’re losing … to the … the federation. The World Wide Wrestling Federation is kicking the Confederate’s ass right now. Sherman’s marching all over… is there a wrestler by the name of Sherman? ‘Cause if there is, he’s definitely doing his job.
Anywho, hope you’re all well. I will talk to you soon, probably from the car — if not before. That didn’t make any sense, but I’m going to stick to it. Bye y’all, take care. Say ‘bye everybody! Steve — hold on, I’m going to have them all say ‘bye… [those of you wearing earphones should take them off now: starts howling at dogs, dogs start howling back.] There. [More howling, with dogs howling in sync]
