Nicholas Brendon audioblog update Nov. 20, 2008 Part I
Hellooo, everybody. It’s Nicholas Brendon, calling you, at your homes. At your works. At your synagogues. At your mosques. At your temples. I be … ugh. Are you gonna? … This thing keeps hanging up on me, so if it does, I’m just going to have to put my fist through a windshield.
I’m driving in beautiful downtown right now – downtown Los Angeles. And, one of my episodes of Criminal Minds aired last night. Probably, this is a day late, if not two days late, this blog. But I wanted to blog at you: Blog. … It’s … probably … Blog. … Hold on: Blog. Blog. Blog. OK. Sorry about that. It’s gonna be a little: “Cleanup on Aisle 4. Yeah, I blogged everywhere. So if you can help me clean that up, that’d be great. Y-e-a-h. It’s kind of leaking into Aisle 5 now, too. It’s a mess.”
So, I just got done reading a book called A Prayer for Owen Meany; I was a little late on it. But, you know, I gotta say I enjoyed it. I loved Owen Meany. However, I did not particularly care for John, the narrator of the book. And I thought that the end was horribly cheesy. And I cannot express, or stress enough how much I did not like John. That whiny, pansy bitch. Who just whined, and whined, and. … ”I’m still a virgin, I’m 40.” It’s like, shut up and fuck somebody, already, ya’ know. My gosh. And you can tell, he probably walks like a penguin, and has, like, a slight case of halitosis, you know. It’s like shut up. Man.
I just started reading a book called Prizzi’s Honor, which was a movie with Jack Nicholson. I’m part owner of a bookstore, so I just kind of get these … I just take books out, and I read them. And I’m really enjoying that. I’m on page, like, what: 90. So it’s really given me some interesting ideas with writing and stuff. Because I’m writing, too.
Just finished a pilot – a comedy pilot, that we’re going to shoot. It’s called The Quincy Rose Show, and I am playing myself: I’m playing Nicholas Brendon in this project. And we’re going to shoot it on a shoestring budget, and shop it to networks, or quite possibly produce it online. And then we would have complete creative control of it … I’m talking to you like you guys are my lawyers. So, email me and let me know if you think that’s a good idea.
I have seen … I just saw Slumdog Millionaire, which is a movie by … a director. A director directed it – Chris Boyd, I think, is his name? Beautiful film. If you guys, probably overseas. Well, it’s from, I don’t know… it’s so weird. I don’t know.
