Pen pals

Dear guy who plays Michael on LOST,

BOO FOR YOU! I'm glad you found a job that'll last through 7 seasons, and I'm glad that you're comfortable playing a murdering, sneaky, conflicted spy of a fellow, but WHO HIRED YOU? You are a horrible actor and when I watch you get angry, I get angry because I think I'm watching a 7th grader try out for the school play who's about to walk home sobbing because he DIDN'T MAKE IT, not even as stage crew. Also, you look a lot like Jamal from the hit series Ghostwriter. Do you get that a lot? Thank you for your time. And what's the deal with Walt, anyway?



Sincerely,
Gurrbonzo.

Dear whoever is responsible for Ghostwriter,

Whose idea was it to have Alex and Gaby share a room? Brothers and sisters at that age are not quite so close. Kind of a weird message to send to public-television-watching kids in the early 90s, don't you think? A little Flowers in the Attic-esque? Also, I want you to know how often I wanted to write "Rally K!" somewhere and wait for my friends to show up, and I also want you to know that more than 13 years after your show is off the air, occasionally I STILL get Lenni's hit song, You Gotta Believe, stuck in my head. Damn you.



With respect,
Gurrbonzo.

Dear Murray from Flight of the Conchords,

Yesterday during the American Idol finale, when David Cook rocked out with the celebs, I couldn't hear the music...all I could hear was your voice saying "Zed Zed Top." Thanks for that. Don't add me to the fan club.

Best wishes,
Gurrbonzo.

wow, you are pen-pals with three really awesome shows. that's really all i have to say. your post brought back memories of the summer of 8th grade, where i watched ghostwriter every single day. but i can't remember a bit what it was about. i'll have to look for it on youtube.

I'm confused as to who is bad and who is good in Lost. Oh, and I've been having naughty dreams about Sayid. What could this mean?

And I used to beat up kids who watched Ghost Writer...

Joel said...

No offense, but it seems that you have been home with the TV and the baby a lot lately.

Joel: How right you are. Well, sometimes we go on walks and lunch dates. But which sounds better, a) watching an adorable baby, Flight of the Conchords and Lost or b) rocking out with Tam in small claims court? Hrmmm?? Hrmmm???! That's what I thought.

They took my boy! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt!
I'm getting my son back!

Jordan said...

oh, I'm glad the baby didn't cut down on the swears that characterized the knocked up portion of your 2L year! And, as for the close "relationship," I was thinking less literary and more tv, like Marsha and Greg: behind the camera, or even a more recent (though outdated) example, Angelina Jolie, red carpet, her brother...

Boom shaka laka boom!

gurrbonzo said...

Linds: Yeah!!! Thank you for pointing out the best part of an incredible video. Those of you who want an extra treat, watching Jamal's mad skills at approximately 2:16.

I need cooler pen pals.

But it's Mercutio from Romeo & Juliet! (The Baz Luhrmann version) I loved him in that! But I've also never seen lost.
