I have an Acting Degree in Theatre, so naturally I write and direct films. I used to work for an insurance company, so naturally I hosted an entertainment podcast called Experts and Intermediates. I have kept a hand-written journal for over five years now, so naturally I should write a blog. When I watch movies, I feel guilty for not reading more books. When I read books, I feel guilty for not knowing about more music. When I listen to music, I feel guilty for not knowing more about anything and everything else. TV has secured its place in my heart, it is ever-present. I am 27 years old.

I believe it is important to make up fake book titles and claim to have written them and send text-messages of movie lines whenever possible.

I can neither write nor effectively quote poetry. It remains elusive.

    Hey Jason,

    I’ve resigned myself to the fact that there won’t be a comback special and I’ve just hit the unsubscribe button on your podcast. Bad times.

    On the bright side I’ve just seen something I thought you might appreciate and put in an order. A little something in return for your many hours of entertainment. I didn’t spot anything for BJ though…

    Drop me a postal address and I’ll get the artist to ship it out to you.

    All the best,

    Hey Jason,

    I just found your old posted episodes of Experts and Intermediates and I LOVE it–but I wish the old, old episodes were available instead of just the few you have online. Is there any way I could get copies of the old, unposted ones?


  3. 3 Jason June 29, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    Um… if you tell me which episodes you’re looking for, I’ll see what I can do, sir.

    Whoa. Charlie Kaufman let you use a still from his movie to head your blog and he didn’t even mind that you didn’t credit him?

    Man, that’s pretty impressive. I was going to use a still from Brazil on my blog. You know, the awesome shot at the end with Michael Palin wearing that creepy baby mask? Yeah, that one. I was going to use it and then I was going to slap my name on there, but I just wasn’t comfortable with it. Mainly because I didn’t have anything to do with the movie and I didn’t want people to think I was passing off someone else’s art as my own.

    But life is open to interpretation, I guess. One man’s plagiarism is another man’s marketing strategy–or whatever that old maxim is . . .

      So did you come up with your online name and email on your own? I didn’t notice a disclaimer explaining where you got them. I don’t make money from this site. If Chuck has an issue, I’m sure he’ll let me know.

    Great to hear you on the new BP podcast.

    You mentioned that you were willing to share old episodes, and I’d love to hear episodes #1, 2-7, 8, 11 and 18.

    I’m especially eager to hear the in depth analysis of 2001 you once referred to I believe that was in episode #1 (of course I could be mistaken)

    You should try reading some of Leonard Cohen’s poetry. Look up the poem 1,000 kisses deep. It’s my favorite.

      That’s pretty damn amazing, Zadi. I love how many different versions I found. The poem, which is perfect, and then all sorts of versions and variations on it. Wonderful.
