Hi. I’m Dave Bloustien: a former stand-up comedian and occasional improviser with an interest in comedy and genre film. I also write scripts (movies for fun, TV for cash), design online games and interactive training for big companies, sometimes teach screenwriting and screen business at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, and probably wrote jokes for that cancelled light entertainment show you liked. I also contribute to a podcast called ‘Damn Fine Commentary with Dave and Lynch’, about the latest season of Twin Peaks.
And sometimes I write very short horror stories.
These are they, and part of an old project called Grand Guignol, which may turn into a future project as well. Gosh – the cyclic nature of time, eh? More recently, I’ve expanded to include the entries I’ve written for the NYC Midnight competitions, and probably other bits and pieces I’ll put together as well.
Anyway, that’s the stuff you find here. All the text content of this blog is written by me, of course. If you want to reprint it somewhere, contact me and I’m sure we could work something out. Otherwise just share a link which directs back to this site, like a responsible social media baron.
(ps: some of the stories are available from the drop down menu. They’re the ones I like best. But there are others on here, if you’re inclined to hunt around for them.)
