valente2Nick Valente- Television Editor

I’m a just Television and Radio guy from Brooklyn, planning an inevitable takeover of the world. However, I am still looking for a dumb mouse, preferably named Pinky, to accompany me. At the site, I’m a movie, television and graphic novel kind of guy and that’s what I’ll be writing for the most part.

Expect some book and music reviews as well though [insert demon horns here]. I grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn, the same neighborhood many of the best mafia films of our day were based on, idolizing guys like Robert DeNiro,  Martin Scorsese and Al Pacino. I’m also a big sports fan and follow the New York Yankees intensely.

  1. Brett,

    You forgot to write that you are an expert in: colonialism, the atomic bomb, and guns and gunpowder in your profile. Other than that, it’s spot-on. Keep up the good work!

  2. Awesome site!!! Very impressive :) Keep up the great work!!! Im psyched to know that I have been in the presence of talent at L-219 :)

  3. Thanks for the site and your great review of Guy Sebastian’s LIKE IT LIKE THAT album. hope one of you gets to interview him soon.

  4. Thanks for taking an interest in Rhys Lewis and promoting him with an American audience! I think his songs will resonate with many Americans during some anxious and turbulent times.

    I know he connects with many people at a very personal level because he shares his vulnerability and human fragility we all have when dealing with realationships, love and rejection!

    I will spread the word about your website in the U.K.!
    Gareth Lewis (Dad)
