how to make jorts | bdg

August 13, 2019

The days of spring will surely bring the birds
and bees cavorting. But since I am a gentleman, I’d much rather
be jorting. Hi, I’m Brian David Gilbert, and if you’re
familiar with my filmography or discography, you know that I am a jorts enthusiast. Get along! Now that the weather has warmed, I have received
hundreds upon hundreds of emails from hungry fans asking, “Brian, how do you make jorts?” Though the jortmaking process is incredibly
personal and introspective, I would be happy to share with you my method so that you might
take your first steps on the journey to jorts. Step one: Choosing the right jeans. A true jortist understands that you cannot
buy jorts off the rack. In fact, you must use jeans that are well-lived
in, and well-loved in. Or else you might commit the greatest sadness:
a jean jorted before its time. I’ve been wearing these jeans for about a
year and a half, and they’ve graduated. Step 1a: Practice! They say it makes perfect, and that’s certainly
true for jorts. Do a few practice passes with the scissors
to make sure your hand is strong. Be careful not to get any dirt or bodily fluids
on the jeans during this step. Especially blood. You cannot get blood on the jeans during this
or any step of the process, I cannot stress this enough. The consequences are dire. Do not bleed on the jea- Step 1b: Reminisce. Your jeans have been with you through a lot,
so let’s celebrate that. Visit your favorite amusement park. Frolic on the beach together. Step 1c: Respect. Your jeans deserve some commendation for their
years of service. Create a piece of art that symbolizes your
bond. Serenade the jeans with a song you’ve written
for them. *Singing* I can’t believe my eyes I’ve got
some jeans around my thighs, and… This would be a great time to invite any talent
agents if you’re looking for representation, as I currently am. Hi, I’m Brian Dav… Instead of throwing your jeans into the laundry,
why not hand wash them one last time? *vigorous scrubbing* Come on. Come on. Step 1d: Listen. To the jeans. They’re speaking to you. Can you hear them? Their words are quiet but the implications
are loud. You awake one day to find that the jeans have
spelled out their preferred jort length on the walls of your apartment in ancient runes. You can’t escape their words. They find you in your sleep. It’s babbling, but, though you might not understand
it on a surface level, you understand it viscerally. You understand it better than the words your
colleagues say, your peers, anything the world has taught you up to this point. Maybe you could understand it better if you
just listened closer. Listened harder. Maybe if you stopped listening to everyone
else. Step 1e: Fear. *sound of a door opening* *door slam* *distant singing* Step 2: Cut the jeans. Congratulations. Your journey to jorts is over. It’s finally over. That’s a good pair of jorts.

    I had a dream last night after I watched this at 2 am and in said dream I was just out on the town and some new Pokemon were being announced on a big screen (it's a dream idk why it was on a big screen) and I stopped to watch and Brian David FUCKING Gilbert walked up next to me and I was like "you're not gonna attack me right? Cause I wanna see these new Pokemon" and he shook his head and was like "no I wanna see them too". So we just watched and it was taking forever to announce it cause come on you know how long this shit takes, and his friends come over and are like "dam they still haven't announced it yet" and we were like "yeah wtf" so we just kinda set up a little area with like pillows and shit (again idk its a dream) and we sit next to each other and we end up talking about things I genuinely don't remember and you have no idea how much it pains me that I don't REMEMBER. anyway i end up like with his arm around my shoulders and I'm leaning on his?????? Idk like and then the big reveal happened and we all were like "OH GODDAMN IT OF COURSE ITS THAT, WHAT THE HELL DUDE" and we all just collectively laughed about how shitty that Pokemon(?????) was. It was great and we started talking again and I looked back at the screen for some reason and I don't remember what we were talking about but he goes "well how about…" And I look over and we just like kiss????????? Like ?!??!?? Wtf brain why did you make me dream this?? Of course the dream went on and I was lying in his arms and we were all just hanging out and it was a really good dream and I woke up so confused cause I already knew I had a crush on this man but then my brain made it worse and I had to get this out somewhere. I'm pretty sure he won't see this so that's why I'm putting it here. Just to clarify I have no ABSOLUTELY NO interest in dating or anything like that with him, I am 17 and I live in California so there is no way I would even CONSIDER but yeah I'm shook cause in my dream I was his age and that just made me sad when I woke up so yeeeeaaaahhhhhh

    the world is far to hot and dry now for you and your jeans to live as you once were.. no matter how much you may feel that the blood of your relationship is on your hands, it is never your fault that you both simply outgrew your relatioship. it's good to move on, change is good. right?

    He warns you not to get blood on the jeans because then the jeans will have a hunger for blood and will go after you.
    The process of making jorts is to kill jeans before they kill you.
