New comedy with Anne Heche! Premieres Thursday 8/7c. Preview now.
Welcome back, Skipthusiasts! As many of you know, I came home from college a few months ago and ever since, my dad has been all over me to get a job. It's kind of unfair, since he knows better than anyone how bad our unemployment numbers are. And I just think you can't force these things. So I've been experimenting with some different enterprises, sampling the tapas plate of career opportunities. (And also some real tapas plates - those ones with the ham and also with the sausage are amazing and the cheese ones and potato ones are also delicious and some other ones, too.)
At first, I thought that my natural aptitude, refined artistry and ownership of a cape would bring me success in the world of magic. But that got me thinking about one of my personal heroes, Harry Houdini, who died after someone punched him in the stomach, which doesn't sound like a very good way to go. It also got me thinking about one of my favorite films about magic, "The Prestige," which stars another of my personal heroes, Christian Bale, who played an illusionist in that movie but who is also Batman. And that made me think about how Batman's gruff voice is a lot like my dad's gruff voice and that maybe they're related. And that's when I realized that my cape might have other uses.
I'm not trying to say that I'm going to be the new Batman. (I mean, unless they're looking for someone because they did leave it kind of open after the last Batman movie and I know that whatever I do, I definitely want to help people.) But I am saying it's important to be the hero of your own story. Wow, that was intense. I think I need some more tapas. Until next time!
Catch you on the flip side,
