I’m really banking on, one day, an entertainment company will see my Twitter posts and Tumblr posts and Facebook posts and realized they need a funny dude who has trouble talking to girls he has crushes on.
First off, hi! Secondly, my name is Brentt Harsman (your future employee), and I am a fine young man. I like animals, cooking, television, video games, books, writing, and over analyzing cute girls. I also like having employment. That’s where you, my future employers, come in. I would love to bring all of those assets (and more!) to your table. I feel like I could really change the atmosphere, for the better, with my attitude and lifestyle. I am not a partier, so if you are looking for a heavy drug user, look elsewhere. I do like to over analyze cute girls, though, so if that’s something you are into, look no further! I do that like a pro. I have over 22 years of experience doing that; in fact, I have exactly 23 years experience doing that. If you need references, I can provide a detailed list of every cute, smart and strong woman I have had a crush on in the past that I have over thought and under talked. I can provide a list of every girl I have awkwardly talked to once that, even the day after we talked, the girl probably didn’t even know I existed.
Anyways, thanks for your time, I can provide a resume upon request!
Get hired going around the country and eating at restaurants? I’d love to do that for Food Network or Travel Channel. Maybe mix in comedy clubs and other stuff. Like Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, but mix in nerdy stuff and comedy stuff amongst the hotels and restaurants and excursions and other stuff that he does.
I think my favorite thing about living in the New York City area is the availability of amazing, delicious food. Pretty much every block has some hidden gem offering something unique and delicious or something you’ve had a million times, but it’s a million times better.
Today (still counting Monday September 26th as today) I went deep into the East Village with my friend Mitchell Stephen Fesh to try this Venezuelan place I’ve been wanting to try for the past couple of years, Caracas. Caracas is famous for their arepas, a Venezuelan/Latin American specialty that consists of a pastry that’s similar to a pancake/english muffin made out of corn flour sandwiching stuff inside of it. Caracas offers a wide variety of options which is almost overwhelming because everything sounds amazing. I settled on the A.18, La De Pernil. Stuffed inside the corn meal pancakey thing, juicy and tender pork shoulder with a couple slices of fresh tomato with a spicy mango sauce on top. It was amazing.
The only downfall of the meal is that it’s messy. Juicy and delicious, but messy. The sauces and juices dripping out of the arepa and onto my hand; I hate getting my hands dirty which is why I deprive myself of ribs and other messy foods. It was worth the mess though, some of the best food I’ve ever had.

Look for more of these in the future, I enjoy trying new places and writing about it.
Having dreams where I am close friends with people I am not even acquaintances with. It’s really depressing to wake up from them. Also, it’s depressing when your sleep hours are 8:00am-3:00pm. The good news is I got some more writing done on my material for open mic night on Thursday.
“I would definitely love to make movies someday. Unfortunately, I need to meet the level I’m at of control with this show. I’m gonna do this show until they won’t let me anymore, but if I ever get to make a movie, the only pitch I have—and occasionally I get calls from people saying, “Hey, I got some financing, would you like to make a movie?” And I told them, “Yes. Give me $8 million and I’m not telling you what the movie’s about. You’ll be able to see it when it’s finished.” And nobody, thus far, has taken me up on the deal. But I don’t care. I don’t need the movie. I believe someday I’ll get that deal. I believe it will happen.”—Louis C.K. (via totallymorgan)
I did not watch the Emmy’s last night. I hate awards shows and awards of almost all kinds, mostly because I never get any so why should I like them. However, I was very hurt and discouraged to find out that Steve Carell didn’t win nor has he won one for playing Michael Scott on the Office. That is amazing and ridiculous to me. He made such an unlikable character into a lovable one, a household name even. He made Michael Scott a name known, probably all around America, maybe even around the world, yet he lost to Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory.
I do not watch BBT, so I cannot say whether or not he deserves it, but Steve is a beast who did great things for 7 seasons on The Office and it’s amazing that NOT ONCE has he won an award for his talent on that show. I don’t know, to see such talent and hard work go unnoticed for seven full seasons is very hard to watch and kind of a drag and eats away at my ambition a bit.
I am trying to write a solid 5 minutes of “stand-up” material about how stupid and childish and non-adult-like I am. It’s harder than it sounds even though everything I do is stupid, childish and non-adult-like.
We’re like 90% there, we’re hoping to do it maybe next summer, if everyone’s schedules work out and the guys get time to write a script… They have kind of a skeleton of a story worked out so we know where it’s going to go but we just have to kind of cross the t’s and dot the i’s, or something. But Starz are being super cool and they’re going to let us do it, and we’re all excited, we all want to do it.
I’m breaking my own Arrested Development/Party Down rule of not posting about it until it’s official, but this seems promising.
