Underwear - The Crusher

Wow... So it have been a few months of silence over on this page... allow me to end that abruptly! 

 

I, Nick Grunerud, aka Underwear have a new tape coming out on FTAM Productions in June! 

 

It is a great release, brooding and heavy as the name implies. Will say it's going to be about 5 to 10 dollars, and I will have some for sale during the summer! 

***

Also, I am going to be open for more shows if anyone wants to know starting in June! 

 

Have a good one!

Sabrina and Kevin
                    By Nick Grunerud


        INT. CAFE. 

        It's raining outside and Two people are sitting at a table. The Man has
        A copy of the latest Skuf magazine. The woman is sitting staring inquisitively. 

                    KEVIN 
            (Making rabbit faces outside the window) 

        The rain gets harder outside 
                    KEVIN
            It's the second half that get SO bad 

        Sabrina looks over to him 
                    SABRINA
            What are you talking about? 
        Kevin flips another page of the crumpled magazine 
                    KEVIN
            All the issues of Skuf magazine start so grand,
            So big... They start to really climb into a 
            topic or a theme... then the pages just get
            larger and larger 
        Sabrina takes a wide gulp of tea
                    SABRINA
            Okay.... uhh-
        Kevin cuts her off
                    KEVIN 
            It's like the second season of Cheers or something 
            or the part of the Unabomber manifesto that's 
            shit? Or like a bad cake? Right? Um... or a ...
            the fucking catholic church? 
                    SABRINA
            What the fuck Kevin? You are making no sense and 
            you might continue to further lack general sense
            as the day goes on. 

        Kevin puts his magazine down

                    KEVIN 
            Listen... 
                    SABRINA
            Sure. 
                    KEVIN
            You paying the attention? 
                    SABRINA (hastily) 
            Sure, sure, sure. 
                    KEVIN
            Cool, cool... 
        Sabrina takes a wide gulp
                    KEVIN
            This magazine is not right for me, which is akin
            to so many things... 
        CUT TO TITLE SCREEN, WHICH APPEARS FOR 2 SECONDS

        (Screen goes to black, music starts to play) 

        EXT. STREET 

        Kevin is walking with one of his friends, Carla. Both of them have their hands
        in their pockets, ALMOST the same way. Kevin notices how beautiful it is. 
                    KEVIN 
            I just notices how beautiful it is outside 
                    CARLA 
            Yeah, it is. It's days like this that really shine
            in my mind... 
                    KEVIN (Looking Confused) 
            Sure, yeah, awesome... Carla
                    CARLA
            I am SERIOUS! Nice days like this really put a stop
            to that whole suicide shit and depressing shit 
            that permeates life... 
                    KEVIN 
            Yeah, that's the pitts 
        Kevin looks up to see where they are 
                    KEVIN
            Really is the pit, if you wanna know the truth 
                    CARLA 
            In a specific sense... 
        Carla takes out two pairs of headphones, one labeled "White" and
        the other "Urban" 
                    KEVIN
            Carla, those headphones... overtly offensive
                    CARLA
            It's not happening...they are not bad in your way... 
        Kevin puts his head down as they keep walking
                    CARLA
            In a specific sense, the pit is where you find it all...
            The dark branches making everything all dumb, the cherry tree
            making all of the rich folk hungry 
                    KEVIN
            I like it
                    CARLA
            ...the splayed branches making everyone all rich...
                    KEVIN
            I really like it 
                    CARLA
            ...The rich making everyone all splayed
                    KEVIN
            I like it...Female Karl Marx right here... 
        Carla looks disgruntled 
                    CARLA
            Kevin! You can't possibily like all that I do 
                    KEVIN
            Hey Look! 
        Kevin points to a convenience store door that is open. 

                    CARLA
            You know how much I love things that stay open and continue
            to BE open... 
                    KEVIN
            Que Pasa? 
                    CARLA 
            The Spanish language is one of the great things you do. 


        "The End" with a blue background appears on the screen. A 13 second pause ensues 


        INT. KEVIN'S BEDROOM 

        Carla and Kevin are sitting in Kevin's bedroom with a bass guitar 
        lying in the middle of a large rug. 
                    CARLA 
            So....You wanna play it? 
                    KEVIN
            No...I don't 
                    CARLA 
            Why is there confusion inside of you? 
                    KEVIN
            Because it's always been there
                    CARLA
            So....you have always had a time? 
        Carla blinks both of her eyes, signifying something 
                    KEVIN
            It's not prudent what we are doing... 
        "The End" with a red background appears on the screen. A 12 second pause ensues 

        INT. BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY 

        Kevin and Carla are walking through a Burlington Coat Factory 

                    CARLA 
            Hey, Kevin? 
        She squezes her stomach 
                    CARLA
            Does this fat make me look fat? 
                    KEVIN
            No, it makes you look fat! 
        They both laugh very forcefully 
                    CARLA
            Kev, you make it fun
        Kevin picks his nose and aggressivly checks his watch 
                    KEVIN
            Thanks a whole lot 
        Carla looks at her watch
                    CARLA
            God Dammit! We have been in a Burlington Coat Factory- 
        Her words get cut off by a copyright symbol on the screen. 
        "The End" with a yellow background appears on the screen. A 9 second pause ensues 

        EXT. STREET 

        Sabrina is outside a package store waiting. 

                    SABRINA 
            hmmm...I hope I get a really nice quarter from the clerk 

        The clerk walks outside

                    CLERK
            Here you go girl. 

                    SABRINA
            Thanks bitch 

        She looks disaproving of herself 

                    SABRINA
            Sor....sorry 
        The clerk looks at her very bemused and walks back in. Kevin comes out from 
        the shop. 
                    KEVIN
            Hey good news! 
                    SABRINA
            What my love Kevin? 
                    KEVIN
            There are really conspicuous candy bars in that 
            Gas station check outline 
                    SABRINA
            Okay... 
                    KEVIN
            Want to hear the bad news? 
                    SABRINA
            You had just good news available... 

        Kevin picks his nose and looks at his watch 

                    KEVIN    
            I do not think our gas tank can hold anymore gas 

        They both look at the package store clerk. He looks back at them and 
        walks outside 

                    CLERK
            Da hell you crust punks doing out here? 

                    KEVIN
            Sorry, I am being a total cunt right now... 

        Sabrina glares at Kevin

                    SABRINA
            Kevin! Don't say that word! It's... it's...
        Sabrina looks at her watch 
                    SABRINA
            Wrong to say. Even in a gendered way that subverts
            generalized expectations of how society should and could
            view the way we interact with personalized structures. The
            ways in which men still think that words don't hurt the ones
            they love is indicative of the hegemony that regins free
            in all of us as human beings. 
        There is a long pause between the three of them
                    KEVIN
            You are like Andrea Dworkin, minus the Portland 
        Kevin shakes his head and mouths the word no 
                    SABRINA
            Is that a new one? 
                    KEVIN
            I keep trying jokes but they come out as what I just did. 
                    CLERK 
            Could you dum dums get the hell out of my store please? 
            And probably stop saying the C-word while you are at it? 
        Basball bat cracking a baseball is audible in the background


        INT. OFFICE 
        "The End" with a pink background appears on the screen. A 5 second pause ensues. 

        EXT. STREET 
        Cuts back to Kevin and Sabrina with the clerk 
                    SABRINA
            I really don't enjoy this guys entire demeanor... and I am
            starting not to like this shop we can't get out of. 
        Kevin takes out his phone
                    KEVIN
            We have six white friends, eight black friends, and no one
            has a guard card... Really need a security guard for our party
                    SABRINA
            I know! I would love to have that extra sense of not giving a 
            rip in our own dwellings 
        The clerk looking irate starts to shout 
                    CLERK 
            Get out of my store, you cocksuckers! 
        Kevin and Sabrina leave the store. A 32 second montage of them going through
        different stores occurs. 

        "The End" appears on the screen with a black guard card. A One Second Pause ensues. 

        INT.STUDIO- 

        The pause is broken up by a shot of a Turner Classic Movies style studio where a 
        black woman named Jackie and a Iranian man named Pacer are facing camera 

                    JACKIE
            Hello everyone... My name is Jackie
                    PACER
            And I am Pacer of course
                    JACKIE 
            We are obviously here to talk about "Kevin and Sabrina", the 
            chilling debut from acclaimed director, Fish Washington. 
                    PACER
            Yes... Fish Washington's classic new film 
                    JACKIE
            Yup.... 
        Camera cuts to another shot with a picture of Washington in the background
                    PACER
            Washington was a sharp, bright, mutli- gooded man with extremely open heart
            and wonderful style 
                    JACKIE
            He made straight people look sick and wanted a society where no one 
            directed each other but rather they created a space where
                    JACKIE AND PACER IN UNISON
            Art made it's place in the center of the room 
        Both Jackie and Pacer look behind them 
                    JACKIE
            Fish Washington will be remembered for his wild contributions 
            to actual cinema because he is who he is. 
        Jackie crosses herself 
                    PACER
            That's weird what you just did, but I will honor his way
            by using trademark infringement on your gay ass
        Pacer crosses himself. The clerk from Kevin and Sabrina comes out from the 
        set. 
                    CLERK
            Hey, did anyone order a Koran, or a bible, with extra paprika? 
        All of them start laughing SO HARD. Improvised dialogue as Kevin And Sabrina and
        Carla come out as well. Numerous talking heads appear with all that have spoken where it is 
        revealed that no one in the cast supports animal rights 
        and that they in their words "extremely love" Maccaroni Grill. 

        Credits roll to different songs. Half the credits are from other movies. 

                    THE END.

January 8th Underwear dance show/New Underwear Tape.

Playing at Crunch house on January 8th with the very always great and gracious Peter J. Woods. 

I have some great stuff planned for this show, going to do mostly danceable tracks, I am feeling the dance right now... 

***

 

Peter is putting a tape of mine out in May, and album called "The Crusher". 

It's a very personal tape that address: Suicide, death, fun, and other great stuff. 

 

 

WOW!!!

New Sketches and new "Sketches"

Lots of people have been wanting to hear about my philosophy around the idea of a "Sketch" and why what I do does not constitute what a sketch is.. 

 

OKAY...

 

1) A SKETCH IS A SKETCH 

It doesn't matter how many ideas go into a bit or a video, The fact that you even made a cohesive narrative out of NOTHING means you made a sketch

2) PROBABLY A SKETCH IS BETTER WITH CONTENT

If you are stringent with your video work, chances are you need to do a better job than what I am doing if you want to create conspicuous content (Okay so maybe you need to put in man hours AND women hours to get this stuff done) 

3) I DON'T MAKE SKETCHES 

The videos I have made are NOT sketches... I just looked into it and they are not what people refer to as "bits". 

 

Thanks!

Underwear- Rhythm and Blues

I have released my 3rd album of the year... 

I really have an affinity for this record, as it was produced and recorded due to a problem with my computers auxiliary jack, which led to some interesting compositions. 

This album addresses some themes, which I would LOVE to talk about in person with you 

Also LISTEN TO IT FROM START TO FINISH, WITH HEADPHONES OR GOOD SPEAKERS.

Rhythm and Blues- Underwear Album

I started to make a new album (My 298th one of the year) and realized that my input jack was broken... 

Rather than say "Ah P--p and Shit" and "Rats"... I decided to use voice memos from the last six years to supplement the instrumentals... 

The result I thing is something pretty good... It's also very very... 

Enjoy this track! 

Sam Moth
Parody. "This Kiss"

Huzzie pt I.

Hello Nick here! 

 

I wanted to talk about a concept which is known to many in the music/comedy community of New Haven and all around the world as 

"Huzzie" 

Well what it means is exactly what you want it to mean 

Emphasis: Huzzie falls within the umbrella of Emphasis. Use it to make a great point! 

Anger: Huzzie accurately depicts anger. Say you are furious at several people, a friend and two others....why not use the word Huzzie and shut them down? 

Thanks for reading! more to come! 

 

 

Sam Moth

Enjoy the song!
