I’m not a prolific blogger. We’re doing this to learn. Jim Varney, one of the greats of comedic cinema, had a schtick he would do when playing Ernest P. Worrell. He would ramble at the camera directly, which was playing the role of his “friend” Vern. Vern never had lines and was never seen, though it was clear from the context that he was annoyed by Ernest’s constant shenanigans. I like the idea of communication that, while consumed by an audience of many, is played out as if it were addressed to just one other person.
I think that’s the model I’m going to go for here. I’m just going to talk to you, friend. You and I, we’re going on this journey together. Thanks for coming along.
