A Rerun? Debatable.

As you may or may not know, I’m a guest on “The Debatable Podcast” today (their first anniversary!), and due to my mouth being so incredibly fucking large and mechanical with the yap-yap-yap, I will also be the guest on next week’s episode, since they had to split my interview into two parts so as not to overwhelm you with my giant crazy.

[[Disclaimer: My giant crazy is totally overwhelming even in short bursts. Caveat streamer/downloader.]]

But what can I say? For me, it’s cheaper than seeing the shrink, plus y’all aren’t all up in my face giving me good advice I know I should take, but will resent you for anyway.  Win-win.

I mean win-win for me.  Y’all’re the poor schmoes who’ll be listening to the yap-yap-yap.

During the podcast I talk about my life, how I started writing, the various shows I’ve worked on, and a whole bunch of other stuff that’ll probably prevent me from ever getting another job in Hollywood.  (In other words, I’m honest. Really, really stupidly honest. Oh, and sometimes slap-your-mama profane. Kind of a trademark.)

For those of you who don’t already know me, though, or follow this blog, I’m re-posting links here to my 2012 series, “The Pilot Season Experiment,” which explains the almighty suckhole that is TV staffing season — and why it is especially sucky for anyone with a cooch and some tits.

So if you prefer your Mere Smith seen-but-not-heard (and really, who doesn’t?), feel free to enjoy my agony in its text version.

Otherwise, hie thee to Debatable!

One woman’s descent into

actually giving a shit what she looks like

for the sake of a job.


THE INTRO  – My heartfelt, well-intentioned, yet painfully shallow mission statement.


STEP ONE – Botox, bitches!


STEP TWO – Hair today, gone tomorrow! (Ugh, that was awful. I hereby fire me from my own blog.)


(Sorry. I had to rehire me. No one else would write all this for a bag of donut holes. I will.)


STEP THREE – Motherfucking SPANX. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.


STEP FOUR – What to wear over your motherfucking SPANX.


STEP FIVE –  War  Paint.


THE OUTRO – The story is resolved. Some important lessons are learned. And there’s a moral. Yeah, I said it. A fucking MORAL.

  1. The podcast is dee-voon. Your endless talking is informative and entertaining – no surprise there. And you may talk a lot, but you ALWAYS listen. (And the podcaster Gregory knew his shit. I love that it tickled/surprised you that he did a Mere/Angel re-watch in prep for the interview. I did that when I first met you online close on to two years ago. ; ] )

    I listened to the whole thing in one go because I couldn’t stop – normally, I’d prolly have broken it into two jogs.

    Can’t wait for the second part that I’m calling in my head, “Mere’s Revenge: To Hell With All Of You.”


  2. i loved your experiment, mere. hadn’t seen it before this post. truly funny & tragic haha
