The Comeback!

Hey there,

Shame on me: first thing on the docket.

I am currently making pizza and reading a script that I am performing tomorrow evening. For a non-employed actor at the moment I have been consecutively working. Last week and the week before that I was in the encore performance of the Cabaret show that I had done earlier. We performed it for the final time last weekend in attempt to raise money for a little girl who is waiting to have an operation. It was the best one to date, the show that is. And like I said, this week, tomorrow I am doing a performance with a whole new group of actors that I was recently introduced to. They seem like really awesome people. Ironically one of them is my Voice teacher at school and he was unaware I was in the production till I was brought in recently. It provided for awkward conversation, but also I think we will be able to connect on a further basis than school. I thank my friend for helping me get the gig, he really believes in me as an actor and that is really inspiring to me to know that people feel positive about me. So again, my friend, thank you.

This feels like the appropriate time to give an audition update: Nothing film in a while. although there is a crap-load of commercials being shot in my city. Unfortunately I am not a burly man with a beard, so unless I can grow a white plethora of facial hair and gain 60 pounds I do not have an opportunity to audition. Soon though, if I think hard enough.

Class is going great, all my teachers bring really interesting methods and exercises to class. I am really enjoying the experience. Can't wait for things to keep getting better.

I am back in a rhythm and blues stage. I am obsessively listening to the genre all the time. I love it.

If you are bored, check this out:

It's Will Smith's Daughter!!! She is really great. Crazy potential. I just came across her the other day.

Back to me. That is really all that is going on at the moment. Oh I get to be told how blind I am tomorrow which will be a wonderful time filled with laughter and merriment.

And my year project, other than being an apt pupil and acting, is writing a one man show that I will be performing in my home town during the summer. So, any ideas as to what I should do? Give me some ideas Abyss.

The start of something.

A revelation.

Well, one could say that it was not so much a revelation as much as a verification of my journey. Tonight was an informative and yet entertaining evening thanks to the wonderful Red Bastard. I highly recommend his show, it is what you want it to be. That is the magic of his wonderful performance.

I went into the show knowing that the envelope was going to be pushed, and left with a warm feeling in my heart and the wanting to push myself even further than I am. As you know I started school this week. Everything is going swimmingly and my classmates are really great individuals. I already feel as though we are growing as a group and can foresee and really productive nine months. The information that we are provided with is extensive and thought provoking. We are made to keep journals, and although I cringed at the initial idea, I find that I am really valuing the documenting. My teachers talk about becoming aware of your body and mind. Red bastard was the perfect example of this tonight. He was carefree and light on his toes. He knew where everything on his body was in relation to everything else. It was such a visual explanation.

He shared a lovely moment with us by asking us what our dreams were and throwing them in his "Dream Bag". He told us to articulate these dreams and they would come true. He said to keep pushing for the things that will ultimately give us 100 percent happiness. Play the game, be present. He was brilliant. This may seem like it is becoming an obsession and I want to clarify that it is most certainly not that. I was just personally affected in an encouraging manner and I am ready to push harder for what I want. I will get to where I am happiest. Wherever that may be.

If you have the opportunity please look him up. The Red Bastard.

Audtion update: I am doing a Promo this weekend for GLAD. Should be a fun time. I am stoked.

Also I have two shows in the next few weeks and I am pumped about that.

And some humour before I depart. First day of school we get our student ID's. Mine looks like this:

Thats right actor spelled "acter". A glorious moment.

Peace Abyss.
