Nicholas Brendon audioblog update March 20, 2008
Hello everybody! It’s Nicholas Brendon here, calling you on Thursday, the 20th. Got the big Buffy reunion tonight, at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California. And it should be interesting to see everybody again. Everyone’s going to be there, and … let’s see.
My girlfriend told me to answer some questions from, you know, the website, and this is the one I will answer today. Emma is not named after Emma Caulfield. The little Chihuahua that you hear barking in the background sometimes, is not named for Emma Caulfield. So there. It’s on the record. I adopted the dogs. They came into my life after they were named. I probably wouldn’t have picked Emma, but Emma is a sweet name, since my girlfriend will read this. Probably.
So, a couple things, few things. I start my next episode of Criminal Minds on Monday. I haven’t gotten the script yet, so I’m not sure if I’m going to be showing full frontal again, but you can rest assured I’ve been down to the gym — just a part of my repertoire, now (good luck spelling that one, Jacqui). I know that I can count on Jacqui, of course, the webmaster who transcribes everything. Hello, Jacqui, hellooooo.
And then I’m going to Atlanta to finish writing the show … the cartoon that I’m teaming up with Ben Thompson, who is the writer of Super Cat. And, so, we were supposed to go to New York on Monday to pitch all the shows to the Cartoon Network again, but I’m gonna be working, so Ben’s going, alone. So if anybody wants to contact the Cartoon Network and say, “I’ve seen this Super Cat thing on YouTube,” feel free, and have your friends call, too. Because they had a change of power. Yeah, you know, it’s not even Hollywood, it’s in New York, you know, but it’s the same politics out there. Out with the old, in with the new, but the old guy who that there was there for like, six months. … I’m just the talent, y’know?
Reading a great book called Revelations of Dr. Modesto right now. Saw a really good movie called Under the Same Moon — it’s one of those read-y films, y’know. Foreign. One of those foreign-language films. And it was very sweet. Very, very, very sweet. So if it’s around in theaters, wherever this message is finding you all, go check out that movie. I’m pretty sure we’ve talked about other movies I’ve seen. It’s been a little busy for me lately, so I haven’t seen as many movies as I would have liked.
Andrew Bynum, the Lakers center, is going to be coming back in two weeks, and that’s very good for my Lakers. And the Dodgers’ season starts on March 31, which I couldn’t be more excited about. I’m hoping that my girlfriend gets me tickets to the opening day. I’m hoping that she reads this, but she hasn’t really tipped her hand. And there’s a chance I could be working, too, so you know, everything is kind of up in the air right now.
But, more importantly, this Paley thing is up first, and it’s tonight. I’m a little nervous, ’cause you know it’s kind of like seeing an old girlfriend. And you know you’re not getting back together, but you’ve still got to see her. So that’s gonna be interesting. I will … what I’ll do: I’m flying to Atlanta tomorrow, so when I get into Atlanta, I will leave a blog — an audioblog, that’s what this is, that’s what I’m doing right now. And let you know how it went. Lauren might try to videotape it tonight, so we can put it up on my Web site. That’s obviously ambitious, but if we can not do that, then I’ll give you a blow by blow of everything that happened. It might take a few hours, you know, but you guys have the patience to listen to me ramble for a few hours, dontchya’? Don-chya’?
Alright, hope this message is finding everyone well, and I will talk at you tomorrow. Peace be with you. Malakahakameka. Myayaya-huhuh. And, tootles. Ta! Byeee.
