Hello, my name is Chris Hinton and I’m a dimwit. I drink too much, I curse too much, and I take too many photos of myself sporting a pretty ridiculous half beard. I suppose I could end it right there, but we dimwits never know when to shut up, so I’m going to soldier on if you don’t mind.
I am 36 and live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I currently work in the film industry. Naturally, your immediate response to that should be, “Hey, the film industry. Do you work on them there pornos?” No, I do not work on them there pornos. I may be a dimwit, but I’m a bona fide dimwit, thank you very much. I work on major motion pictures as a location scout.
In between working on movies, I occupy my free time with various hobbies like writing, music, traveling, video editing, photography, and Photoshopping the human heads of my friends onto the bodies of those adorable clapping sea lions. It does keep me rather busy.
In a nutshell, The Dimwit Diary is a place for me to post an assortment of madness in exchange for a piece of sanity in this sometimes crazy world. Writing is my therapy, my release, my way of working through my thoughts. It’s my way to laugh, my way to observe, and my way to poke fun at some of the absurdities we encounter in life. I encourage you to follow along in the madness, but if it’s not your cup of tea, I understand. That’s comedy, can’t win ’em all, and that’s life in showbiz as they say. You’re probably the type of person I’ll be poking fun of anyways.
So follow, share, steal, tweet, reblog, or whatever if you’d like. It would mean a lot to me. Many thanks for being awesome, my fellow dimwitted half-breeds.
The Captain of the Dimwits
