I am Twit

I am TwitSometimes I confuse this blog with a personal journal, and sometimes I forget that the people I write about aren’t fictional characters, or theoretical abstracts, but flesh-and-blood beings with human emotions and (perhaps more saliently) their own internet access. Still, how could I have known that before the day was out, (the very lovely and talented) Dominique Moore would have thrown a link to my previous post into her Twitter feed? Eep! Now I feel like a bit of a heel, and would like to say that I didn’t mean to upset anyone… not that she seems very upset, but an interview she also linked to mentioned that she still greatly admires Eisen, so clearly I’d have been better off keeping my rant to myself. Moore seems pretty cool though, and will hopefully forgive me as quickly as she forgets me. That said, if she (or her agent) read this, I do have a great pitch for a zombie-themed sitcom she could star/sing in, and another idea for a supernatural comedy film she could star in. I’m serious. I don’t have the money or sway to make these projects happen, but let’s do lunch anyway!

Every book I read at the moment underlines the importance of letting go of negative and critical thoughts, whether they’re directed inward or outward… and in hindsight it’s impossible to see how ragging on a TV show from three years ago, that many people actually quite enjoyed, could have been of any benefit to anyone. My justification to myself is always that I’m helping to tweak my own philosophy of comedy or political attitudes by “thinking out loud”… but it’s more likely just the sour grapes of a whining wannabe. What would Buddha do? I don’t know. I have yet to read about the years he spent as a struggling script-writer. I guess I need to learn to step back, acknowledge my burning desire to say something bitchy about a more successful writer, and then just let it dissipate before I get anywhere near a computer keyboard. Ommm…

    Hey, congrats on the namecheck – that is pretty cool :)

  2. That's a good idea, but it is a positive to have realization. I am a little slower on the uptake…tend to let bitchy things dribble out of my mouth a little too often. I get that nasty nauseating guilt feeling which seems to outlast the "i'm so witty and wonderful" feeling. It's not very beneficial, nor worth it, eh?

    Exactly. Which is what the books keep telling me, of course, but it takes a while to sink in. Momentary, illusory pleasures must be forsaken, in favour of less flashy, long-term satisfaction and peace of mind. But it is, as ever, easier said than done. :(

    Congratulations, Dee! Your fame is all but inevitable now! :D This is so cool.Moore seems pretty cool though, and will
    hopefully forgive me as quickly as she forgets me. But,see, it's great lines like that that make you memorable. I'm pretty sure that it was some clever turn of a phrase you popped out back in the day over at MM that made me think, "I like this guy. I gotta get to know him."Don't worry. You may have harshed on Eisen a bit, but you backed up your opinions well. And the things you said about Ms. Moore were very kind.Here's a thought. How many celebrities have read your opinions of them and just never said anything? ;)

    Here's a thought…
    And what a terrifying thought it was. Eep!

    Well, I thought it would be worse to tell you not to worry since that's the only celeb that will ever bother to look at your blog. :-PThe option of simply not saying anything at all was outside my frame of vision, as usual.In all seriousness, I am truly impressed and happy you got such validating attention. It's just a matter of time now. Your career is poised to strike.
