The Brazil Nut Dance, as it was meant to be

When Larry and I made “The Brazil Nut Dance“, we had always envisioned it a certain way but at the time were unable to finish it the way we wanted. Well now my knowledge has grown and it finally exists as it was conceived in our minds.

Get Rich! (Webisodes)

A while back I was involved in making a series of webisodes called “Gettin Rich”. They’re sort of infomercial parodies. Well now you can check ’em out!

I feel somehow special

I got a random email from my band’s website telling me that I might be interested to know about an Ebay auction. This auction happens to be for a cassette of a band I was in in the ’80s. For some reason that felt pretty cool.
On another random tangent, in the past two days I had a total of 4 projects premiere that I was involved in. One was a 20 minute Sci-Fi piece that turned out really cool, one was a three camera studio shoot of a scene from “North By Northwest”, one was a small role in a short about an evil garden gnome, and one was a fake trailer for “B21”, a parody of the movie “21” with Kevin Spacey as the teacher who get MIT students together to go to Vegas and count cards and make lots of money. In our, I played the Kevin Spacey teaching Austin Community College students to “count balls” at bingo parlors. It turned out pretty damn funny. Even the opening cracked me up: “From the film makers who watched the trailer for the movie ’21’…”

Cary Grant, George Clooney and Milkshakes

Been incredibly busy on the acting front. Not that I’ve ever been that good about blog updating but I like to pretend I have an excuse. In the past two days I played Michael Clayton (George Clooney played him in the film) for a student directing class and also did a scene from North By Northwest where I played Cary Grant’s role. This was for a college production class where we performed in studio with a three camera setup. We rehearsed it many times so the camera people could get their shots and the control room could get their switching between shots choreography down. It was quite a lot of fun.
I’d seen “North By Northwest” but it was some time ago. The scene we did was the scene in the train car where Cary Grant first meets Eva Marie Saint. It really struck me how incredibly saucy this scene was for its time. A sexually aggressive woman industrial designer. Kudos to Ernest Lehman!
As a side tangent, Larry and I have both been trying to be healthier in our eating habits. In an effort to remain healthy yet indulge our sweet tooth, Larry concocted a brilliant treat. We had already been quite the fans of sugar-free chocolate Jell-o pudding. Now it is important to note that that pre-made stuff isn’t nearly as good as the powder that you add milk to and make yourself. Trust us. So Larry had the idea of mixing the pudding mix with some milk and ice and making a milkshake. from there we also added some peanut butter and for nutritional value added a scoop of “Muscle Milk” supplement. This has now become one of our absolute favorite treats. Totally sugar-free, only as much fat as the milk you use and can be a great dessert or a meal replacement if you add the Muscle Milk. Chocolate-peanut butter icy shakes. You’ll thank us.

Six Word Memoir

Thanks to Oslowe, I have been tagged in that virulent, vampiric, spreading like the undead way known as the Internet Meme (I actually don’t mind, it was just a fun comparison).

There are Rules for the Interwebs.
The Six-Words Meme was originally started by Smith Magazine.
Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).
Here are the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.
I do not make these rules.
