No More “Slut” Bashing

dailydewmontnews

Dear Stirfry,

                My ex girl friend is a slut.  Since we broke up two weeks ago, she has been with three different guys, and I heard a rumor that when we were still dating she made out with my best friend.  Now it is time for me to get her back.  I’m thinking of sleeping with her sister, what do you think?

Sincerely,

Hot and Bothered

                Dear Misguided,

                What I think is that you sent this to the wrong advice columnist.  But since you are here, let’s take a look at the problem shall we? The problem is not that your girlfriend has “been with” three guys since you broke up, the problem is not even that she kissed your friend (although that is admittedly regrettable) the problem is that you are treating relationships like a game of chess, and victimizing your ex with cruel double standards. …

Summer of Love and Youtube!

dailydewmontnews

Hello all! Writer and Director of the Dewmont Daze, Paul Durante here with a small, and utterly unappealing update.  Frankly, you could be using your time better right now, but thanks anyway for reading.  Myself, as well as everyone else involved in my new web series, “The Dewmont Daze,” have been absolutely hustling trying to get our videos out there.  For those of you that do not know, the Dewmont Daze is a wacky new web series featuring the ordindary lives of students at Dewmont Community College.  As of right now we are essentially just releasing shorts, as the actual series itself is still in development.  Each video is essentially a stand alone at this point, and serves to better introduce some of the characters from the series.  So far it has been well received, but we are very ready to expand our audience (because honestly, who the fuck isn’t?). …

The Not So Daily Dewmont News

Yikes…..I know, I know, I never right, I never call, and my table manners are less than to be desired. As some of you may have noticed (God Willing) I haven’t been posting a tremendous amount lately, by which I mean that I have not been posting at all for the last weeks. Sometimes life gets in the way. I work two jobs this summer, and on top of that, I have a very serious girl friend. Serious in the sense that I love her, not in the sense that she pays attention to the stock market. There is distinction to be made.
On top of that, as opposed to under it, or the always undesirable adjacent to, I have been very busy with my new web series “The Dewmont Daze”.
“The Dewmont Daze,” is a new web series that I do essentially everything for including write, direct, film, edit, and pretend to know how to act for. As it stands right now we (and by we, I essentially mean me) are releasing short like skits or sketches if you will featuring characters from what is to be the full length show, coming to a youtube near you this up coming winter. The process itself is fun as well as rewarding, but at the same altogether and entirely frustrating. I have discovered that the internet can be a bleak place, flooded with people just like myself trying to get their own work out there. There is some beauty to it I suppose, I can certainly get behind the easy access that we have now to creating visual art, but it puts me in a bit of a pickle because I am still left to trying to promote myself….You see where this is going right?
Here is the link to my newest video.

I am a decent person, so for the sake of decency I will mention that it contains some content that is not suitable for all ages. The language is peppered moderately with profanities, our acting prowess is borderline offensive to those of you with taste, and the entire concept of the video is that the two main characters, myself as a leather bound Stirfry, and my brother as Otto have been pulled over because one of them were smoking weed in the car. I would like to mention here that though my videos often do talk about, discuss, or even simulate marijuana use, it is in no way advocation of that sort of behavior. I myself do not smoke, and I don’t have particularly strong feelings either way about the habit. Ok with disclaimers out of the way, here is where I ask you all for a favor. Don’t worry, it will only take two minutes of your time, and it is simple. Please watch my video. The web series that it precedes is full of my innermost thoughts, feelings and fears, but in order to get to that point I need to do through hear. What you will see in this video is a series of jokes that, while having been to this point received well, are no indication of who I am as a writer. This is a video that is made for the fun of making a video, as well as for the simple entertainment of the viewer. I do not want you to expect to be enlightened by a video that has the Phrase “butt weed” in the title (because with that expectation you will often be disappointed in life) but I would like you to give it a try. I know that I am biased as the creator, but I do believe that you will enjoy this video. So I am simply asking you to watch it. If you hate it, than the entire experience for you is over, and you only had to deal with it for two minutes of your life. It isn’t the worst thing in the world is it? I don’t think so. However, if you like it, I am going to ask a little bit more of you. Please like the video and subscribe to the channel. Share the video with your friends or tell your mailman about it while you are trying to keep your dog from ripping out his throat. I am a college student with a quite literal negative amount of money… I am completely unable to afford any sort of promotion that I myself did not entirely facilitate. There is only so much that I can do. Please help a very young writer out, and help me share my work. And by the way, sharing is not limited to the video. If you enjoy this post, please by all means retweet it, reblog it, or get it tattoed on your back. I am nothing if not a shameless self promoter, and unfortunately for the moment I am in need of a lot of shamelessness and promotion. If you would like to talk, hit me up on twitter @DewmontPaul I have discovered recently that I really greatly enjoy interacting with people on twitter. I would really like to hear from you all. Whatever you all chose to do, thank you for reading to this point, and have a nice day.
