INT. PARLOUR - NIGHT
We open on a parlour lit by several candles. The walls are lined with books except on the center far side which has a fireplace that is roaring along.
MATTHEW AKERS sits smoking a pipe in a dark red bergere chair near the fire. He's wearing slippers, and a long robe with silk pajamas underneath. Next to him is a small table with an ash tray, a highball glass, and a bottle of J&B.
A TITLE is superimposed on the bottom of the screen:
"Saturday, January 11th"
Oh hello. Welcome to my humble abode. Today
I just have a few small updates that I would
like to share with you. First order of business -
Akers reaches underneath the chair and pulls out a new vinyl copy of his album, "TOUGH TO KILL." He holds it up for us to see.
I have more copies of TOUGH TO KILL available in
my bigcartel store. You can purchase those
clicking right here. Please keep in mind that I
only have a limited amount of copies so get
it now while you still can!
Akers sets the LP back underneath his chair. He lights his pipe and takes a puff.
Secondly, I recently put up an early mix of a new
song titled, "Tempel Of Jupiter." You can listen
to that song by pressing the play button below -
"Tempel" will appear on a drone comp that will
be released sometime in 2014.
An ELDERLY BUTLER named BERTRAM enters the parlour and approaches Akers.
Sir, a Mr. Froese is on the telephone, he
says it's urgent.
Not now Bertram! Can you not see that I
Very well, sir.
Bertram exits the parlour.
Akers pours a glass of J&B.
Third, "Deleted Scenes" will be reissued on
Retrograde sometime in the first half of 2014.
If you are interested in downloading it now,
please click here.
Akers takes a drink of the scotch, gets up from his chair and grabs a pair of mahogany bellows. Resting on one knee, he begins to pump air in to the fireplace, revitalizing the flames.
Lastly, I am looking to tour the west coast of
America during the second half of March. If you
are interested in booking me in your town you
can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
He puts the bellows back in their position and sits down in his chair.
Until next time friends, stay healthy.

Bertram, I am ready to speak to Mr. Froese
