The Truest Slant of All…

It's a tragedy for me to see the dream is over

Well, gang, it’s been fun. This is the last thing I’ll write for True/Slant, and I want to thank everyone who read me and emailed me and offered to name their children after me. (This one goes out to you, little Briana Sanchez.) When I was first approached to write for True/Slant I thought no one would read me and the site would only last a few months. Turns out, True/Slant thrived for several years and was eventually bought by Forbes, so…one out of two ain’t bad.

Seriously though, I had a great time at the T/S and hope to cross paths with these good looking gentlepersons again soon. A hearty high-five to Coates Bateman, Michael Roston, Andrea Spiegel, and Lewis Dvorkin. Great to work with, for, and about. People who let you curse out an entire country for no reason are good people to know.

If you’d like to keep reading me, please follow my Twitter: @b_donovan. I’ll post links and news there about my upcoming work for other sites, TV shows, and fast-food restaurants. As of August 1st, I will begin writing for the good people at ThoughtCatalogue.com, and may be turning up at other sites you’ve certainly heard of – so stay tuned!

Happy Christmas to All, and To All a Good Night

    Fare thee well, Brian. You’re a very funny guy; keep going at it. All the best to you, sir. The more people like you, the better the interwebz.

    Oh, and also: anybody who can weave a Milli Vanilli pic in their post has earned the right to universal respect in the world of pop culture. Very nice.

    Brian, I greatly enjoyed your posts, especially the ones that mentioned me, although, frankly, there weren’t enough of those.

    About Me

    Twitter: @b_donovan

    I am a writer, actor, and North Korean Dictator. Over the years though I've written for everything from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to Fox News to Chapelle's Show, and can be seen frequently on Vh1 making snide remarks at the expense of others. Recently I was the Head Writer of "Fair Game", a news and comedy show from Public Radio International. My interests range from news to sports to entertainment, so this blog should read kinda like the evening news, except funnier and with less Brian Williams. Fuck Brian Williams.
