Hello, @jamesgunn! I'm glad my incessant and annoying and repetitious twitter self-promotion, in this instance, worked! And to anyone who else who occasionally comes across this one-note twitter feed, I'm sorry!
Yes, was wonderful speaking with you @DouglasMGordon! Below, for anyone else who might see this tweet, is a link to our @boswellbooks event, and a GIF signifying 'yes we had a great talk,' from my show @BluntTalk_STARZ featuring @maryhollandaise
Thank you for this review, @HashtagSpiruli! cc @kendalljosh @mulhollandbooks (While writing this tweet I just discovered the GIF function! I'm so technologically unintuitive. I still yearn for the days of the answering machine.)
Today at 6pm ET, I will be having a virtual event @TheMysterious. I will read & be in conversation w/ @tomwickersham. If you feel like it, you can watch here, no sign-up necessary: https://t.co/RM1j4dKOCI @mulhollandbooks @kendalljosh
Looking forward to my talk with @tomwickersham tomorrow @TheMysterious at 6 PM ET at this link (I will also read from the book and thanks in advance for tuning in, should you feel like it!):
On 4/20 at 6:30 PST @skylightbooks, I will read and have a virtual talk with the wonderful @nickkroll to launch my new book, A Man Named Doll. Please join if you feel like it! https://t.co/WiNcyWbumh
Don't know how to fit this in the box - I struggle technologically - but here's the cover of the British edition of my new book, A MAN NAMED DOLL, published by @PushkinPress. Thank you @LeeChildReacher for the kind blurb! Out 4/27 in the UK. 4/20 here in the US.
For a bit of distraction from all the troubles in the world, tonight, 8 eastern, check out the very loony & talented voice comic @ZeroBoynyc (Zero Boy) in all his mad glory: The Wednesday Alternative: Zero'rama... Back to Zero https://t.co/u0yEgRaIHm via @YouTube
Thank you for your kind words! So, yes, all the references in "Blunt Talk" to "Network," including @SirPatStew collapsing in the pilot were nods to that great film. And the boardroom scene with Stacy Keach in S2 was an homage to:
Saw Patrick Stewart was trending and thankfully he's ok! But it made me think of our show BLUNT TALK. Both seasons, we tried to talk about climate change, amidst the slapstick & lipstick. Here's the s2 trailer:
I think BORED TO DEATH ended w/ this beautiful @TheMagFields song, which always makes me teary-eyed: https://t.co/U0zjoNPgRX "Dance w/ me my old friend, once before we go/let's pretend this song won't end & we never have to go home." Wasn't intentional but was a lovely elegy!
Replace the word "shout" with the word #vote as you sing along! It's something of a natural anti-depressant. #Vote! Stay sane! #Vote!
Here's a recent audio-recording of the essay in question, set to music. Also, it can be found in my collection from the ancient year of 2000: WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE? Hope, as when I first posted this, that it brings some relief at this time.
Been stuck in airport for hours & was reminded of this scene I wrote for @SirPatStew Blunt Talk - Season 1. Airport Toilet Scene (Patrick Stewart) - YouTube
At one time authors were interviewed on late night tv! Maybe they still are? Here I am on Letterman, back in 2003, at the 27:27 mark:
