Bio
My name is Victor and I'm a young man (lets just say I have an ego beyond my years), a New York native who grew up in Vermont and is now living two blocks from Hollywood Boulevard. I'm surprisingly no longer single, but I'm still the same cynical, wittily comedic actor/writer/stuntman with a deep seated interest in psychology and philosophy. I like the band RUSH way too much, and am thoroughly engrossed in music. Oh yeah, and I write stuff for fun. (All prose and short stories are copyright Victor Schwartz 2012 unless otherwise stated)

Stuck In The Middle With You

Well, I don’t know why I came here tonight. But I certainly got the feeling that something ain’t right. I’m scared, but not about falling out of my chair. And I’m wonderin’ how I’ll get through the next decade or two. But there is no doubt. There are clowns to theRead full post »

 

Well, sure enough, just days after my post about all the reasons Rick Santorum shouldn't be a viable candidate, he delivers another stunner. He must've read it and gone "psh. Is that really the worst of it?" This is literally so stupid I thought it was a link from the… Read full post »

Santorum: A Definition

I understand that it has been over a year since my last post. I am aware that for a significant amount of time before that I was spotty at best. There's nothing I regret more.

The British rock band Dire Straits (one of my personal favorites), has been around since 1977. One of their many hit singles, Money For Nothing, has been on the airwaves since it's release in 1985. But now, after 25 years of play on the air, the/

We Walk This Road: Album Review

A few of you here on OS have been following me long enough to remember one of my earlier posts about Glenn Beck where he breaks down and cries about his "9-12" project, where he details how and why he thinks we should all strive to be the unified, decisive nation… Read full post »

How Could Anyone Have Known?

I was having a pleasant discussion about politics with someone today, and they said a very interesting thing to me. We were discussing the current spill in the Gulf of Mexico, as it has recently been announced that it is driving sharks out of their natural feeding areas and towards the… Read full post »

Published-ish

As a couple of you may recall, I began on OS with simple short stories, entirely fictional, and was purely here to gain insight into writing via other's stories and critical feedback. The internet is a place where we don't have to worry about physical consequences to what comes out of… Read full post »

 

They were lying on top of a picnic table, staring up at the stars. The small pinpricks of light shone as though someone had fired buckshot on a black sheet, and draped it over a spotlight. The moon was waxing, but it wasn’t full yet. The great gibbous stared downRead full post »

Just a Heads Up

Lately, many of you may (or may not) have noticed that I haven't been around. This is for two very good reasons. Reason one: I have two jobs now trying to save up as much money as possible, which is seriously cutting into my time for R&R. Reason two: I want… Read full post »

Why I Need A Dog

People suck. I can't stand people. I have been trying for a while to change this opinion, to become a social person, but I just can't get around the facts. I wanted to be popular when I was younger, to have people appreciate me, to be everyone's pal. As I grew… Read full post »
It's late at night, and the networks are all broadcasting their talk shows that have become a who's who of upcoming movies and bands. But after watching these shows for a while now, I've come to a conclusion: With the notable exception of Craig Ferguson, they suck major wind.

Old Dog, New Tricks

He was born 5 days before me. Well, 5 days and 26 years before me. He started off as a promising actor, but developed problems with alcohol and other substances. Many people didn't think he'd ever return to the big screen. And yet he has.

The sweat ran down his forhead. The Jeep bounced across the rugged terrain, and the four passengers bounced with it. The radio blared, some hard rock. Typical.
 
His back hurt. Damn Dos Equis.

So music is a passion of mine, as moany of you know, but my taste in music is generally considered suspect. Usually I just get weird looks when I give people the name of a band or artist, and I suddenly realized, I should stop blowing these folks off. So here,… Read full post »

Who Cares?

Given all the press that the recent rash of celebrities joining the Pearly Gates Club, I have to bring forth a point that I do every single time someone famous dies: why do you care? Unless you knew said celebrity personally, then it's just another dead guy. Don't these people get… Read full post »

I am Now Officially Entitled

Rather than made snide remarks about the recent advent of advertisments or making some glib memorial about the most well known of the Jackson Five, I decided to just relax a little bit and watch some good old fashioned comedy. For this, I turn to my trustworthy 16 DVD box set… Read full post »

A warning: This is a pitch I sent in to Cracked.Com as an article. It is, rude, and at times lewd. I think it's pretty funny, but it isn't for the easily offended. Read at your own risk :D

Okay, that's a little misleading. I think I got, like, a C in physics, but anything below a B is failing to me, so whatever. June 18th, 2009. Never again shall I set foot in my high school. I'll never again get called into the office because the internet is… Read full post »
