Chuck Lorre #40

Dave


A couple of my wifey's and my favorite tv shows are Two & a half Men, and the Big Bang Theory. They're created by Chuck Lorre (who also did Dharma & Greg and others) At the end of every episode there's a "vanity card" just random musings and stuff. Since we got the greatest invention since the internet (Tivo) we can pause it and read the card. The one last night was great so I looked it up on his website...

Once upon a time there was a wave. The name of the wave was, no surprise, Dave. Dave the wave. Dave was a big, powerful wave. His massive blue body surged across the surface of the ocean with great majesty and deceptive speed. Oh yes, Dave was quite a wave. From the moment he rose up from the ocean he felt special. He felt invincible. Ferocious storms battered him with wind and rain, great ships sliced through his very heart, and yet he rolled on. It was not for him to stop and consider the other waves. To stop was to die. Waves have to keep moving... or else. But then one day Dave saw a strange darkness on the horizon and, for the first time in his life, felt fear. What could it be? Was it connected to the laughing creature sliding across his face on a piece of wood? But before he could make sense of it all, he crashed down into the darkness. For a brief moment he felt a weird, splashing feeling, then oblivion. Dave was no more. He was now a part of the sea. And as we all know, the sea loves to make waves.

I didn't realize this and have now gone to his website and read several of his 'writings.' Very nice, thanks.

He is a good writer. I've always wished I'd taken some more writing classes in college. I try but I always find it hard to really capture whats going on in my head and put it into words that convey what I want to say.

You might enjoy this entertaining audio interview with Bill Prady, co-creator of "The Big Bang Theory." Prady's other writing and producing credits include "Gilmore Girls," "Muppets in Space," "Dream On," and even an episode of "Star Trek Voyager."
