Interview with David Movrin

Full Name:
David Movrin

Do you have a nickname or what do your friends call you?
Old School, Throwback, Members Only, Disco.


Current hometown:
Wakeman, but I claim Sandusky all day every day.

Favorite city and why?
Cleveland because of its very underrated cuisine scene. Also it just rocks, baby!

November 18th/25

How would you describe yourself physically?
If Amy Grant had a baby with John Lovitz it would look nothing like me/skinny.
Amy Grant?!?! I haven’t heard that name in years! Is she still artistically relevant?
No, I’ve just always had a thing for that song she did, “Baby, Baby” and I just enjoy making 90’s references. I have no explanation for the John Lovitz reference. Although, he IS the reason I watch Rat Race.
“Baby Baby” was my jam when I was seven years old, before I discovered Huey Lewis and The News. Everyone’s gotta start somewhere. Plus she was the woman that put me onto redheaded girls for life since they were in somewhat short in supply in my hometown. I heard you can just book The News as a backing band for private functions and the urge to save up and book them and do a gig as Scott Lefebvre and The News has been almost unbearable. That’s why I need to be a millionaire as soon as possible before my angelic voice and good looks fade away.

How would someone else describe you physically?
Slim and goofy.

The first thing people notice about you is…
My moustache.

Hair Color/Eye Color/Race?
Brown (almost red in some light) Blue, and just plain old white.

Sexual orientation?

Religion, if any?
Laughing about it.

Are you superstitious at all? Any phobias?
I would say that I’m superstitious when it comes to watching sporting events. It varies from game to game.

Do you smoke/drink?   If so, what?   Any bad habits?
Smoked Cigz for 5 years then I quit because pink lungs rock. Don’t drink at all, I just choose not to. I blaze it up from time to time. My only bad habit is staying up late often just to tumble (using tumblr, mostly looking at naked chicks).
There’s naked chicks on Tumblr? I’ve been using that site wrong.
Yeah man, that’s how Tumblr was introduced to me. One day a friend was like, “MovDaddy (only he calls me that) you on Tumblr? Dude it’s like the wild west on there you can post anything!” And ever since then I’ve been scrolling through the hottest amateur babes and 90’s nostalgia pages.
Links please? Or at least give me advice about what tags to follow.
This would be a good place for you to start. They reblog from other awesome amateur tumblr sites. Enjoy!
My penis thanks you.

Current occupation/Dream job:
I work at a radio station doing board operating and producing some shows. My dream job would be to host the Tonight Show.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
Go to thrift shops, watch sports, clean (yes, I actually mean that) and hang out on the internet for short intervals at a time. (Typically I don’t like people, although some are cool to hang out with in short spurts of time.)
I don’t like people much either. They’re hard to trust and will disappoint you more often than not.
I know! Any time I make plans with someone they usually flake out on me, but secretly I enjoy it when that happens even if it’s with someone I was really looking forward to hanging out with. Getting ready to go out and enjoy plans is usually the most fun until I’m actually out. I like being at home, and I love/hate that part about me. Actually lately I’ve become more aggressive with my plan making and have been going out by myself. No joke, most every time I’m out, at least 4 or 5 women who are in their 30’s or 40’s always ask me if they can snap a pic with yours truly. I’m talkin’ about bonafide babes, not some bitch with a gut. Every time they ask I’m just like “Chyeahh!!” It makes me wonder how many facebook photo galleries I’m actually in of people I don’t even know.

What is your zombie outbreak survival plan?

Weapon of choice:
Mack 10 (I’ve never used one)

Do you have any special skills?
Being myself. Also, I’m kinda funny.

Did you go to college and, if so, what for?
I’m currently attending broadcast school.

Any pets?   If so, what are they and what are their names?
No, but I do want a dog or a hamster.
Or a half-dog/half-hamster. Would that be a “Hog” or a “Damster”?
Damster. I bet that was the original concept for the kids show “catdog” but even that idea was too edgy for the 90’s.  

What is your favorite animal?
Sloth. (Yes, because I’m lazy.)

Speaking of pets, any pet peeves?
Excessive swearing. I’m cool with it in movies, because it’s a movie but dude if you are gonna f this and s that each and every other word I just can’t be around you because it’s just trashy. The key word is EXCESSIVE! People who chew gum obnoxiously, bad drivers, WAITING. I HATE WAITING BECAUSE I’m VERY IMPATIENT!

Favorite/Least favorite Food:
If I had to choose one it would be Sushi, but I really like quesadillas, french fries, pizza, chocolate milk, and gyros. My least favorite are mushrooms, ketchup, ranch, mayonnaise, mustard, relish, corned-beef, sauerkraut, and any yellow cheese. My dad ruined yellow cheese for me growing up because he would walk around the house eating craft singles. Fucking sick. Cheese cellophanes laying all over the house and in the bathroom sometimes. Who eats craft singles in the bathroom!?!
Lactose intolerant people when they’re constipated?
You make a very valid point, however food doesn’t belong in the bathroom. I say that, but I’m also the guy who finished eating his five dollar foot long in the shower. It was pretty tough not getting the sandwich wet, and a green pepper even fell off into the tub, but I just toed it down the drain.
I used to like to get a Nachos Supreme from Taco Bell and use my passenger seat like an occasional table while driving. Then once I had to stop short and my nachos ended up face down on the interior of the wheel well. I’m not sure if I was more pissed about the interior or sad about the nachos. I ended up having to give up the car but I still remember those nachos so I guess that answers that.

What is your favorite quotation/motto/saying?
Carpe Noctem
I love “Carpe Noctem” but I never get to use it because no one ever gets it. I always have to explain it and it gets boring and redundant. If I meet a girl that knows what it means I’m gonna put a ring on it right there and then.
Yeah I didn’t know what it was until I found this really awesome sweatshirt that featured 4 skeletons sitting around a table smoking cigarettes with that phrase printed above. It’s awesome and I only paid $2 and change for it! When I got home I of course googled the phrase and it’s become a personal favorite ever since.
I want that shirt. Gimme! Or at least give us a link!
I know it’s kinda a long link, but that’s what the sweater looks like. Dude I couldn’t believe how cheap it was! It’s a high quality print too. I guess I just got lucky.

What is the best thing that ever happened to you?
I went to see GWAR in 2008. Also when I got the job at the radio station.
I got to watch GWAR last year from the balcony at Rock & Shock totally high. I usually only have a limited patience for GWAR shows but I had to be dragged out of that one. I think I found the hidden secret to enjoying GWAR. And, yes, I do believe that GWAR should always be typed in all caps like you’re yelling it. GWAR! GWAR!! GWAR!!!
I know man, I don’t want to sound like a douche or anything, but it was seriously the most fun I’ve ever had ever. They didn’t play a single song I recognized but the entire theatrics of the show. It was funny and entertaining and was basically everything I look for in entertainment. That will forever be the best $27 I have ever spent. I wore my awesome white pants that I loved so much and a white t-shirt just to see what I would look like when I got out. Orange. Totally orange. People were all like, “dude your pants are ruined!” and I was all like, “no way I just enhanced them!”

What is the worst thing that ever happened to you?
My mom made me go see star wars episode 1 in theatres. I HATE STAR WARS.

Ever had your heart broken? Is there a story worth telling behind your answer?
Yeah, my now ex-gf woke up one afternoon (she worked 3rd shift) and it was my day off and I hung out and did nothing all day and when she woke up she was pissed that her car battery wasn’t juiced and broke up with me. I swear. She was a fun butt to stuff but I’m way better without her despite the fact that she would always bring home parfaits from mcdonalds and brew my coffee in the morning… and drive anywhere we went… and bought me directv with a dvr for Christmas… (I’m not good at telling stories)

Ever broken someone’s heart? Is there a story worth telling behind your answer?
Yeah. When I was in 8th grade I was a player. I was layin’ the mack down on at least 3 or 4 different internet girlfriends at a time on AIM. It was fun.

What is the best thing you’ve ever done?
I struck out 9 dudes in a little league game once.
Better than sucking off nine dudes in a highway rest stop.
There is no response to this except for yes. Indeed.

What is the worst thing you’ve ever done?
Fell asleep with my hand inside the Funyons bag. Which if you think about it is disgusting because I was really stoned and I was working on eating the whole bag until I passed out at the end. Not only did I have my hand in the bag but I had Funyon mush stuck in my teeth and I slept with it in my mouth all night and when I woke up I tongued it out and swallowed it and didn’t eat Breakfast OR Lunch that next day.
Then there was this one time I was at a friend’s house after a long night of getting stoned they were all passed out and I was awake and I went downstairs to get a snack. I put these blueberry bagels in the toaster and smeared peanut butter on them and it was delicious as you would imagine, so I went for round two. They popped up from the toaster, I smeared more peanut butter on them and ate the first half and finally when I went to go eat the 2nd half of the 2nd bagel I realized they weren’t blueberry, but rather they were just INSANELY moldy. Like blue/green mold covering them. I didn’t puke but my initial thought was “Jesus Fucked-up Christ I ATE THAT?!”  and I still had a chewed up bite in my mouth so it was just the worst combination of bad. Dude, I will never forget how disgustingly moldy those bagels were. They were fuzzy and everything. I’m glad I lived to laugh about it.
Did you swallow the chewed up bite that was in your mouth? Inquiring minds want to know!
Not only did I not swallow it, but I’m pretty sure I just kept spitting into the trash while an uneasy queasy feeling settled in. I still can’t believe I did that. I’m actually starting to get a similar feeling in my stomach just thinking about it. Nasty.

If you could kill one person, consequence free, who would it be and why?
This is a sick question, but to answer it I would probably kill Fred Durst. He looks stupid with a backwards fitting hat. (That’s not even close to a good enough reason to kill someone.)
I guess it is a bit of a sick question but I wanted to throw a couple curveballs just to spice things up. Plus I want to kill people all the time, and for the most trivial offenses and I figured I can’t be the only one. And let’s not forget that Fred Durst was in Limp Bizkit which is a good enough reason to kill someone.
I know! Not gonna lie I still jam out to the song “Nookie” because, well, I liked Limp Bizkit back in the day because I was in middle school and I didn’t know any better. But now I see through all of their gimmicky nu-metal bullshit both now and then. That guy probably got so many chicks for that stupid shit, but to be honest now that I think about it, Fred Durst seems like he has a small dick. I don’t know that to be true, and I try not to think of stuff like that, but occasionally when I do I can totally “see” him having a small mushroom cap for a penis. Also, I think the song he did with Method Man “N 2 Gether Now” is awesome.

How did you get started doing what you do?
As a hobby that I realized would get me nowhere unless I had some sort of credentials.

What is your advice to other people that want to get started doing what you do?
Go to college and attain a huge debt. NETWORK, be polite, and smile a lot. Act like you care even if you don’t.

What projects are you working on?
Dvd intro for a movie that my friend is going to release a few other things for my YouTube channel.
What movie through what friend? This is your chance to promote so promote god damn it!
This movie called Puss Bucket from 1991. It’s only ever been released on VHS 22 years ago, and it’s a pretty obscure movie. It’s LONG overdue to be re-released. I recorded an interview with the film’s director, Lisa Hammer and like I said, I’ll be hosting the movie on a special edition VHS released by Briarwood Entertainment. We are still ironing out some details about the release but all my short segments have been shot it’s just a matter of it coming together! Check out the ten second preview of the segment I shot:

What are you watching?
The newest season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on FXX. Otherwise, I don’t really watch much TV or even movies these days.

What are you listening to?
I’m a huge fan of the Insane Clown Posse (I am not proud of this) and I’ve been listening to tons of their stuff lately. Anything they made post ’00 sucks, but if you ask some all of it sucks. Also I just love rap in general. I have an old school rap cassette collection that amasses 75 tapes!
Alright, this is amazing! Have you ever been to the gathering of the Juggalos?
And what are your top ten favorite rap songs NOT by the Insane Clown Posse?

I haven’t been to the gathering no, but I would LOVE to go. I think it would be a lot of fun and I honestly considered going to their Halloween show this year at the Fillmore but I flaked out. I will see them live someday!
TEN favorite rap songs not by ICP? This is a question I’ve always wanted to be asked. In order it would go:
1. Ice Cube – The Predator
2. RBL Posse – Bitches on the Ding-Dong
3. MC Ren – Final Frontier
4. Kool Keith – Make up Your Mind
5. DJ Quik – Sweet Black Pussy
6. Schoolly D – King of New York
7. Juice Crew All-Stars – The Symphony
8. Bushwick Bill – Already Dead
9. Kool Moe Dee – Pump Your Fist
10. The Digital Underground – Underwater Rhymes

What are you reading?
Not a big reader. 50 Shades of Dave.

Favorite author/book?
Woody Allen or Lloyd Kaufman and my favorite book without a doubt would be Without Feathers by Mr. Allen.

Favorite band/song?
It’s impossible to pick just one, but for the sake of picking I choose Ice Cube and my favorite song would probably be Disco Round by Alicia Bridges.

Least favorite band/song?
N’Sync and pretty much anything they did. Also, Nickleback.

Desert Island Music/Movies/Books: You know the deal. Five of each.
For music I’d take the albums A Lesson to be Learned by the RBL Posse, Mr. Scarface is Back by Scarface, Amerikkkas Most Wanted by Ice Cube, Dude Ranch by Blink 182 and She’s So Unusual by Cyndi Lauper.
Movies I’d go with Hamburger the Motion Picture, Caddyshack, Fight Club, Hi, Mom!, and Easy Rider.
Books I’d take Without Feathers, Make Your Own Damn Movie, How to Talk Dirty an Influence People, The Quick and Easy Way to Effective Speech, and Cat in the Hat.

If you could do anything other than what you do now, what would you do?
Direct movies of the non Pornographic variety.

Who would you want to meet that you haven’t met? You get three choices: Alive.  Dead.    Fictional.
Alive it would be Larry Flynt. Dead would be Peter Boyle, and Fictional would be Judge Smails from Caddyshack. Although Ted Knight would be cool too but he’s dead.

What’s the best and worst job you’ve ever had?

Are there any questions that I didn’t ask that you wished I had asked that you would like to answer now?
I make awesome* YouTube videos.
Thanks for subjecting yourself to being interviewed!
It was fun, hope I’m interesting enough. I’ve always wanted to get into stand-up comedy.

Pitch parade: Give me all of your links for things you want to promote.   All of them.

YouTube: (this was my first account I made in 2007 and I hate my user name but my old account that gained popularity “movrinoscopy” was taken down for reasons related to my broadcast journey)

About the Interviewee:
I spend way too much money on stuff I don’t need. Seriously if I saved every dollar I ever spent on posters and framed pictures alone I’d have enough to buy a decent Air Hockey table. One of these days I want to own an NBA Jam arcade cabinet. I have a Barney pillowcase and California Raisins bed sheets. I’m at this weird part of my life where I want to get stoned, but every time I do it reminds me of how much I actually don’t like it? I don’t know, it’s a weird dynamic. It’s a sign of getting older and I honestly don’t know how I feel about it, but I know sooner than later I will have no choice. I love watching paid programming. I own 7 pairs of shoes. I only use spray deodorant. I traded my SuperNintendo for a Sega Dreamcast. I actually got a Sega Dreamcast on launch day back on 9/9/99 and it was fucking awesome. The first movie I can remember seeing in theatres is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze. All eleven women I’ve slept with I raw-dogged 8 of them and I’m totally in the clear of both infections and babies and it’s awesome. My raw-dog days are behind me though. I can’t be walking around with a sneezing dick! I own more jackets than I know what to do with, and I watch the Zapruder film at least twice a year.
