Full Throttle

So it looks as though Nosedive's going to be annoying the living hell out of people with performance nonstop until the end of the year. Will Yours Truly be able to keep it together and keep that plastic smile on his face until 2008, or will he be a mass of tics and nerves come December?

We shall see, Dear Readers. We. Shall. See.

We had our first read-through of the scripts for October’s The Blood Brothers Present: PULP last night with the cast, and it looks as though it’s going to be a whole lot of fun. This was the first chance I had to hear Mac’s and Qui’s scripts, both of which are very fun in that macabre sort of way (in Qui's short, Mr. Nguyen even points out that yes, bitches, there’s going to be the use of a chainsaw. I'm so glad that won't be my problem to stage).

Even though that doesn’t go up for a few weeks, I can say with certainty that The Blood Brothers Present: PULP will be a lot of fun. You can buy your tickets here.

But before we can get to the graphic onstage dismemberment, Vampire Cowboys’ "Saturday Night Saloon," a monthly series of cross-genre serial short plays, has its debut show Saturday, September 29 at the Battle Ranch on 111 Conselyea Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at 8 p.m. Nosedive's entry will be a western/noir serial called Pinkie, for which I’ve written the first two episodes.

Pete and I have just discovered, to our bemusement, that the second installment in October falls on closing night of Blood Brothers, which means we won’t be able to cast anyone in that episode that's already in the October show. (Of course, the idea that we’d have to postpone or sit that one out is just a bunch of malarkey, sister!)

Now I know what you're thinking, I know what you're thinking. Right now, you're thinking, "Wow, guys. That's a lot of stuff going on. That's all you’ve got going on though, right?"


Vampire Cowboys again has invited Nosedive Central to participate in their annual REVAMPED fundraiser happening in November at the Bowery Poetry Club. This year the theme is "Science Fiction Fairy Tales," so I'm currently working on something called, "Beowulf, Krygor 9 & the Unicorn." It should be, of course, a tad silly.

And of course in December we’ll be reprising A Very Nosedive Christmas Carol, but I’ll plug the hell out of that in greater detail at a later date.

So check out one of these shows. Or all of them, actually.

Seriously, what else do you have going on for the rest of the year?

(So, honestly, folks. Do I come across more like a used car salesman or a guy who's just done a brick of blow and has been up for 47 hours straight?)


Possibly scaring his readership,
