This is a long peak into my journey to make my way through Hollywood. You will learn way more than you ever wanted to know about me. Hopefully, it will be worth your time.

Callback: “Macy’s” @ Action Casting. This was fun and I had another great
“wife” to work with. It was over
in a flash, but “my wife” and I had a great time. One day I’ll get a real wife and have a great time…one day.
I attended an all-day looping/adr workshop today. I’ll admit that after car buying
yesterday and working all night last night I was exhausted…but I was glad I was
there. It’s certainly an area of
the business I want to learn more about…and a potentially very lucrative area
of the business.
I bought a car today. It’s
even more than I expected to get.
It’s a White 2012 Acura TSX w/Navigation and black leather interior. It’s Acura-certified with just over
10,000 miles on it. It’s the exact
car I wanted. Seriously. I’ve
worked hard and I feel that this is a good move for me. Now I just have to pay for it…
Audition: “Macy’s” @ Action Casting. I don’t think I’ve ever auditioned for
this company before, but I’m glad I’m here today. The read was fun and went very well, PLUS I had a great
“wife” to work with.
On another note I’m knee-deep in my search for new
wheels. It’s really exciting…and
also a bit scary. I’ve been
debt-free for the last several years and I’m literally coming off of my least
successful year as a professional actor.
Do I really want to take on debt right now? Sizable debt?
My net worth will still be positive, but still. Yeah, I’m ready to take the risk.
I’m sure about the car: Acura TSX
Not sure about the year: 2010 or 2011. There are a few upgrades that I like in
the 2011 versus the 2010.
I’m sure about the exterior color: White, Metallic,
Silver or Black…in that order.
I’m sure about the interior color: Black. I like the beige, but black will be
easier to maintain over the long haul and I have a history of keeping my cars
for an average of 9 years.
I’m sure that I want the navigation/tech package.
Lastly, I’m sure that I want it to be a certified
I’ve got my financing in place and I’m ready to
pull the trigger. The financing is
funny because I was offered the best avail rate from Navy Federal Credit
Union. I’m not sure I believe
it. I say that because my fear of
rejection is so deep-seeded that I almost always feel that I’ll be turned down
in some form or fashion. I mean I
was surprised that I got the loan; I’m just surprised that I qualified for the
best available rate. Maybe I’m
Happy Valentine’s Day! Yeah, right, LOL!
I have no Valentine. But I
decided today that I’m going to be my own Valentine and get myself a newer
car. I plan to get something
pretty nice too. I have no wife,
no girlfriend, no children, no debt…I should
have a relatively nice car.
Don’t get me wrong my current ’98 Honda Accord EX
Coupe w/173,217 miles that I bought in ’04 has been nothing short of great, but
I’m ready to have something a little nicer for myself. I’m really excited!
