Sloth... love... Chunk!

I know it might seem like I sit at home all day long, drinking whiskey and updating The Blarg, but the truth is I spend much of my day writing.

Lately, most of that writing has been on long-form projects, like screenplays, teleplays, detailed pitches, and (those ever-dreaded) rewrites. The shortest of these projects come in around 30 pages; the longest ones top out around 120.

Because of this, I sometimes take an hour or so to write a short comedic sketch (between one to ten pages) to break up the monotony of those more long-form projects. Over the past couple years I’ve written about a dozen of them; but while they’re fun to write as an exercise, nobody ever really gets to read them.

So to remedy this, I’ve decided to put them out there for everyone to read. I’m doing this for two reasons:

1. I like to share! That, and it’s better than having them sit on my hard drive until I’m dead.

2. It’s my hope that someone out there might be inspired to actually do something with them. Want to film it as a short? Awesome. Interested in animating it? Go for it. Feel like performing it onstage somewhere? I double-dog dare you. All I ask is that you give me credit where credit is due, and (if possible) send me a copy of the final product to check out. I’ll even put it up here on The Blarg to share with the four people who visit my site. Hi, Mom!

The first of Shady’s Shorts is called “Sloth & Chunk.” Download it below.

Today, I received this email:


Your sketch for your “sloth” Sketchbook cracked me up! The Bert and Sloth sketch inspired me to do a sketch of my own. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m a copycat,
