It's no slight to actor Jonathan Togo, who plays rogue CSI Ryan Wolfe on what used to be the No. 1 show in the world (it was recently eclipsed by 'House'). Endicott, who played with Togo and his current Bravery bandmate, keyboardist John Conway, in their youthful group Skabba the Hut, doesn't actually own a television.
"Five years ago or something I was like, 'This is just a f---ing negative force in my life. It just wastes time for no reason,' so I threw it out," Endicott tells to Spinner during a break from mixing his band's as-yet-untitled third album, the first single from which, 'Slow Poison,' just hit radio. "The only downside is you often don't know w hat the f--- people are talking about," he continues. "Conversations can be weird sometimes because you don't know what everybody else knows."
Still, Endicott, who catches up on things through the Internet and tour DVD watching has managed to check out his pal's work. "I have seen the show and it seems cool and he seems good on it," he says. "The thing about him though is his real talent is that he's hilarious. He's like the funniest guy in the world and his character is not funny, which is too bad."
It's probably best for the singer to avoid the series premiere anyway as keeping up on a weekly show when your fall primetime hours will be spent onstage could create some time management issues -- and some angry fans. After a bit of tightening up and mixing on the third Bravery album, an October tour is beckoning, a good thing for some members of the group whose busy schedule over the last five years hasn't allowed them to put down roots.
"Some of the guys just don't live anywhere," Endicott says. "[They] just don't have a place because there's no point." But while their home is on the road, Endicott doesn't expect to settle into a pastime taken up of late by a host of celebrities and mere mortals alike -- Tweeting.
"Twitter is the f---ng worst thing ever," Endicott says. "Now you're just following all these people's pointless lives as though they're your TV shows. I think it's one thing if you're a fan of a band -- you want to know what they're doing and that makes sense -- but just to follow the daily activities of all your friends? It's like Twitter makes everybody's life like 'The Hills.' So now we all just follow each other's lives like we're all 'The Hills' when really, no one's doing anything."
