Just Another Bloody Day at the Office

I was going to call this entry "Michael Jackson Made Me Fat". But that seemed in poor taste, even if it is somewhat accurate. Here's the thing - my gym is on Hollywood Blvd, just on the other side of Mann's Chinese Theatre. In other words, juuust past MJ's star on the Walk of Fame. Which is all fine and dandy, except for the throngs of people both on foot and in vehicles, clogging up the roadways.

It's been nearly impossible to get through them to get to gym for nearly a week. In fact, I've made it through only once. And once a week does not a 6-pack make. I can feel myself getting softer by the hour. It might be insensitive to cut through the masses with a machete, but hey - "I'm tryin' ta work, here!" And casting peeps are looking for fit creeps. I don't go up for creepy slobs or chunky stalkers. It aint me. Nor is this pseudo East Coast accent.

So why the pic? Well, it's from a recent gig and hey, I hadn't posted a pic of me in a while, so there you go. Except for the one with bike - and that pretty much cast me as a background performer. Which I'm not, okay? Okay. Moving on...

What else? I just completed narrating The Atrocity Archives, a rather fun sci-fi novel and am set to voice another video game next week. So things are looking peachy, despite the industry slow-down. Just waiting on that cheeky recurring creep of a role. I know he's out there somewhere...


  1. You make me laugh Gid. haha.
    I know everyone is upset over MJ but... I didn't think there would still be that many people over at his star. I'm with you on the machete idea. However due to legal ramifications, I have not been able to execute this idea for myself. Who knows? You might be cast in the midst of your massacre. Glad to know your at least working on something though.
    Thinking of creep roles... I just came across a casting call for a non-union horror movie asking for a creep. "Guy #7: 25-60, creepy guy." Might want to hurry and find another creep role before your abs deflate. o.0

    I wish you luck on your next venture to the gym.
    Best wishes,
    - Bree

    For the record, you have a nice upper body. XD

  2. Hm, perhaps I was wrong, perhaps that picture (http://www.twitpic.com/8vbjg) already had the blood photoshopped OUT.

    And by now I should know not to take a sip of coffee before reading your blog. I stain more shirts that way...
