Hollywood Nobody

“I am Lazarus, come from the dead,

Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all.”

Well, that is perhaps a slight exaggeration. Think rather of the tag line in any one of a dozen films (Lord of the Rings, Kindergarten Cop, Independence Day, The Color of Money…): “I’m baaaaack!”

Only in this case, it’s, “Dan’s baaaaaaack!” Possibly to be preceded by a warning shout of, “Look out! Duck! Run for cover!”

Dan being, of course, my friend Dan Bronson of Confessions of a Hollywood Nobody, and the website Hollywood Nobody, in my links. After a hiatus of two years, a hiatus devoted to refining the high art of procrastination and coming up with more inventive ways to avoid work than any dozen normal men could devise, Dan is back blogging again and—knowing Dan—almost certainly using blogging as an excuse not to do any other writing. Dan is, as he himself admits—admits? hell, boasts—an all-time-card-carrying-world-champion procrastinator, a man who has raised procrastination to new and dizzying heights of excellence. When the universe conspires to force him into sitting at his desk and putting words down, those words are inspired. Save for when he disagrees with me, of course, as he does on the directing of Fences, but with the exception of those lapses in taste and judgement, he is a brilliant, insightful (I almost wrote “inciteful,” which would have been pretty accurate also) observer of all things Hollywood and literary.

Check out his link on my website.

    Good-looking man. I wish him the best on the cure for his procrastination! I suffer from that illness at times as well. 😉

      I remember reading you mentioning him more than once in your writings. I would look forward to reading a blog by him as well.
      Sorry so slow in commenting not sure what’s the deal at FB, I had seen you had some posts where it shows count but the posts themselves didn’t show up. I was wondering if others are having this issue as well.

    Read some of his blog late in the middle of the night when I woke up. I have to say it felt almost as comfortable as reading yours Jameson. There were some things he wrote that made me think how similar your thoughts and his can be, but also how you each differ as well.
    It’s hard these days to find somebody that not only do I enjoy reading their words but that I actually do learn something from whether views are completely shared or not you are always more than fair to not only your followers but yourself as well as can make me smile and laugh a little.
    I sincerely hope you continue your blog for many years to come, and Mr. Bronson too.
