Epic Interviews! with Jeremy – Backstage Issues

epic interviews logo

Jeremy:  Why does our on tap beer taste funny?

Jeff:  I was just wondering the same thing.  Hey Jack, what’s going on with the kegs?

::Jack comes running into the green room::

Jack:  Oh man, guys there’s a huge disaster out back!  I think it even altered the lines to the tap, I think.

Jeremy:  (spitting the beer out) What did you do this time?

Jack:  I swear it wasn’t me!  I don’t know who invited him here, but he’s ruining everything…

Jeff: (looks down sheepishly) Ummm is he kinda big, dressed like a bargain basement superhero, and ridiculously clumsy?

Jack:  Yes, that sounds exactly like this guy.

Jeff:  Jeremy, your guest is here all the way from Pacific Station, the superhero Massacre!*

Jeremy:  (does a quick internet search) You mean the invincible meat head who is always destroying buildings and not actually catching the bad guys?

Jeff:  Hey, we’re on a budget restriction!  The Dark Lion’s appearance fee rivals that lady president wannabee’s.  We can’t afford that kind of dinero; especially after you went out and hired a band.

Jeremy:  The Epic Band! is a good investment.  People love talk shows with their own in-house music group.

::The building to Two Dudes Studios shakes::

Jack:  Guys, I’d like to point out that we opted out of superhero insurance.

Jeremy:  This guy’s not a hero, he’s a &^%*! menace!

::A guy dressed in a dark red and black uniform stumbles into the green room::

Massacre:  (slurring his words) That bwew is pwetty fweakin’ good…  ::burp::

Jeremy:  Not only did you bring in a lousy guest, but he’s a drunk lousy guest!

Jeff:  Remember, the budget!  By the way, I’m going to have to say no to the lava lamp you put on the requisition list this week.

Jeremy:  ^%&* (kicks out and hits Massacre in the leg)  Ahhh, I think my foot is broken! (drops to the ground, rolling in agony)

Massacre:  Have no ::hic:: fear, citizen.  I am The Dawk ::his:: Lion’s top lieutenant.

Jeff:  It’s cool, Massacre.  We have the emergency services on speed dial, after the whole zapping microphone incident.

::as Jeremy continues to roll around in pain, the drunk ‘superhero’ passes out and falls to the ground, creating a giant hole::

Jack:  I’m glad Jeremy’s in too much pain to see that.

Jeff:  Once Massacre wakes up, just try and cover it with a rug.  Who knows, the chances of the host falling into a hole during the production meeting might increase ratings a bit.

Jack:  I’m on it.

Jeff:  Well since he’s in pain… play us out Epic Band!


*Massacre is from the hit novel The Negative Man: City of Chaos.  Hey, you can read that for free right here in this blog.  Or you can head on over to Jeremy’s author page and grab it there to – Jeremy’s Author Page

**Don’t worry folks, the quality of our programming won’t go down any further due to budget cuts.  I mean honestly, I doubt it could!  Hey, on that note, come back next week as I have even more awesome stuff lined up for you, but probably not Jeremy.  Have a good one everybody! – Jeff, production manager
