Ok, I'll admit it, I make myself laugh. I laugh at myself a lot. I think I'm funny at least 67% of the time. Is that pretentious or narcissistic? I mean I'm a comedy writer, so if I don't like the "comedy" I'm writing than what the hell am I doing with my life right?
I think it's healthy for someone to like themselves. Most people don't like themselves. That's why there's so many porn stars and politicians. There are lots of things I don't like about myself. I haven't swallowed the Nick Gibbons cool aid yet, I just swish it around in my mouth. Here's a list of some of the things I don't like about myself:
1. I wish I wrote more.
2. I wish I worked worked harder to achieve success in my field.
3. I wish I knew/cared more about politics, history, literature and horticultures.
4. I wish I didn't masturbate so much/violently.
5. I wish I could play the tuba.
I'm somewhat humble at my core, but I do make myself chuckle more often than not. I've made tons of short films and written tons of sketches. I like most of them, but I'm self aware enough to know they aren't all golden eggs. My shit does stink occasionally.
I like to go back and watch my older stuff. I do actually forget a lot of the things I've made. Once I make a video or write a sketch, it's out of my head forever, so watching or re-reading my old material is often times surprising and new. Like the Love Boat. It is however embarrassing to get caught watching myself at work.
Basically this blog is an attempt to explain why I'm reposting an old commercial I made for my DVD. I think this thing is really funny and it makes me chuckle every time I see it. I made it all alone one day in our old apartment in New York. There's a lot going on in it and it was a bitch to make. More importantly, if your lame ass hasn't bought one of my DVD's yet, please for the love of God buy one today. Hell buy 5 of them today, I literally have 900 of them left.
