i was on the radio!


i wanna thank billy moses at wjpm in los angeles for having me on his radio show today. it was cool to talk to you billy! (i guess i should've put this post up BEFORE i did the interview... duh!)

anyway, one of billy's questions for me was what my favorite YouTube vid is, and i had to really think because there are a lot of good ones (like that Whatever song, My Hands are Bananas, any music vid on the MCR channel...) but if i had to pick one it would be the Ask A Ninja episode about the number 3. i love that vid. i watch it all the time and it's still hilarious! (hilarious... hilarious.)

stuff about school


sorry - i've been kinda busy and i haven't posted for a couple of days. it's the end of the marking period at school, so the teachers are piling the work on!

my classes are:
social studies

my favorite class is probably social studies, because i really like history (except for when i have to do a project with Derek - lol.)
anyway, thanx for checking out my blog and for watching dylan's couch! 8)

Behind the scenes of episode ten...


as u know, there's a new episode - episode ten - the pet psychic. here's some random info about that episode:

i really did take my dog to a pet psychic! i don't really believe in that kinda thing but i did it because i thought it would be funny. she really was set up at a pet food store and i really did think she was gonna tell us to buy a lot of stuff for the dog.

most of the character of Luna LeBlanc is based on the real pet psychic i met. she really did close her eyes and giggle about the "message" she was getting from my dog.

one thing the real pet psychic told me that didn't get into the episode is that my dog thinks that he and i look alike. so now u know what my dog looks like - he looks like me!

episode ten was shot on two different days. we started one night but we couldn't finish. part of the reason we had to stop was that i had been poked in the eye by a tree branch that i couldn't see and it was getting really teary and red. if u look at the shots in the beginning of the episode u might be able to see that my left eye is red.

the blooper happened because i had the doggy treat in my hand and i was just trying to see what it smelled like. that wasn't suppose to be in there. but it gave us the idea to have me sniffing it and have the ending line come in like i got caught smelling the doggy treat. (the same thing happened when i was sniffing the sparkler in episode eight - that was not planned!) so u can hear the person working the camera telling me to hold the treat a certain way so u can tell what it is, and that's the part u see at the beginning of the blooper, but the thing with my voice cracking was a complete accident!

hi this is dylan and this is my new blog.

i'm gonna try to post info here about my show "Dylan's Couch," about my life, my friends, my family - anything that's goin on that u might find interesting! 8)

for this first one, i thought i would cover some questions that a lot of people ask me.

1.) how did u come up with the idea for Dylan's Couch?
i was a big fan of YouTube last summer (2006), and i have a friend who is a filmmaker and she was really into YT, too, so we were talking about what would make a good project. i was always telling stories about me and my friends, and i kinda wanted to do a show about that, and she said that she could help me make it as professional as possible. so that's how it started. my life provides most of the ideas, and we write it together and we edit it together. so that's how it happens.

2.) are the stories true or made up?
they are made up, but they are all based on something that really happened, either to me or to someone i know.

3.) is "the manual" real, and if it is, how can i find it?
yes, it's real! i really did find it on the web and think it was hilarious! wikipedia has taken it down but it's still in their archive. u can see it here:

4.) why do u always say "hilarious... hilarious... hilarious..."?
i actually say "it was hilarious" all the time. it's kinda my personal saying. 8)

5.) why do u repeat words a lot, like "naked... naked... naked!"
it actually started out that we had three versions of that line on tape, and we were comparing them to see which was the best, so we put them all together and instead of choosing one we kept them all! now we do that all the time because it's kinda something unique and it fits certain parts of the stories.

so that's my first entry! hope you liked it! 8)
