Danny Mendlow's Blog

Just another WordPress.com weblog

Who the fuck is Danny Mendlow and why do I care what he has to say?

Download my first full-length novel here for free

or get the Torrent + 4 Short Stories here:

 

I’m now a semi-regular contributor to the humour/news website “RiotWire”

Check out my latest article here

I am a comedian, an award-winning screenwriter and blah blah blah blah… this isn’t a job interview, it’s a blog.  I do write, perform and produce comedy as well as various other artistic ventures, which means that I work a lot of menial, boring, low-level jobs to sustain myself and work very hard in what little spare time I have to one day succeed at what I actually enjoy doing.  My mind is probably more suited for politics than anything.  Trouble is, I hate politics, swear all the time, like to tell the truth and think that politicians are essentially pure 100% evil, and mostly useless.  Deep down, I’m actually a decent human being who wants to contribute ideas which would make a better life for others… so clearly I have no place in politics.

This blog will primarily consist of socially critical rants about things that I hate about our species and perhaps some suggestions as to how things could be better… but won’t.

I hold no false hopes that something I write here will change humanity for the better.  No, that would actually disprove every conclusion I have come to about the human organism.  In essence, I believe we are a highly pompous, self-aggrandizing, self-important micro-organism with an inferiority complex, that won’t be alive much longer.  I also believe the next 30 or 40 years will be a very interesting time.  I believe a lot of bad things are going to happen and a lot of people are going to die.  I only hope that after all those people die (whether from war, catastrophe, disease or best of all… all three!) Perhaps something different and somewhat more progressive will emerge.

I highly doubt that will be the case.  More than likely we’re all headed for either the most boring or horrific time in history.  Either way, I’ll keep writing.

If you like people who complain a lot about stuff but don’t take themselves all that seriously… then you’re in the right place!

maybe

Also, I hate the word blog.  It’s a stupid fucking word and we should change it.

  1. Hey there. I googled your name and got here b/c I watched a bit and thought of a good addon to your ‘i’d reallly like to suck some tit’ joke. Obv, it took until the about me section to see if this was the right dude. Turns out our intrests are pretty similar except that i couldnt ever see myself going into politics. i probably have less empathy. anyways, i thought you were gonna take the joke to how not only can it be said at a hells angel group but also at the opposite end of the spectrum, science fair, chess club – how it bridges to men of all suits etc.

  2. Just want to say that I’ve started reading your blog and am absolutely blown away. I never knew anyone could think so similarly to myself! You give me hope!

    I feel like I should say something more but I cant think of anything of substance to say. I guess I won’t say anything then…

    • Well I never knew anyone could think so similarly as me either, so that makes two of us! Thanks for the encouragement, I’ll try and write a bit more frequently. Been working on a novel and some other projects so the blog has taken a back seat. Keep on rocking in the ever increasingly not so free world my friend.
