-My 2nd day of filming on “Ward’s Island” was a little rough. Part of that was having a call time of 7 AM-which meant leaving by 5 AM after getting back home around 10-11 PM the night before. Today I got to play the role of a soldier-which meant slicking & tying my hair back tight. I even had a hair net on. It took them awhile to find a cap to fit my watermelon head, but they got one. We only did one scene today-broken up into several sections. Basically the soldiers were attacking the werewolves-which are all CGI so for this we were fighting thin air. Most of the time we were charging across a field. I had to hold a riot shield, which started to get heavy after awhile, and a pistol. A fun but hard day. The extras only had to be there for a half day so that was cool. Traffic during the early afternoon of Buffalo was quite congested. I fell asleep during the ride back-and we had to pull into a rest stop for more sleep cause Kirk needed it too….

WWJ on InstagramThis past weekend a friend of mine, Michelle Wander was killed due to a snowmobile accident. I first met Michelle at a CAROLINE BLUE show years ago and she was at several of them-especially when we played at The Half Penny Pub in Syracuse, NY. Always a pleasure to talk to and very caring with kids. The last time I saw her was at Pirates Weekend at Turning Stone during here Bachlorette Party. It doesn't seem that long ago...Prayers to her family and loved ones. R.I.P. Michelle. The world is a little darker without you... :(Back in 1989 at Albino's in Syracuse, NY with my first band X-Rated. Pic by Heather Snowman.#mementomori #stoicism #stoic #motivation #time #focus #loss
