5/17/2019-R.I.P. Grumpy Cat

-On May 17, 2019 it was announced that GRUMPY CAT (AKA Tardar Sauce) had passed away. All the info in regards to that is in the pic above. Grumpy Cat was a major internet sensation and has probably a million or more memes created from her pics. For all the “grumpiness” in her pics, she brought a lot of happiness to so many people-including myself. I’m a big fan of Grumpy Cat and, if I had the money, would’ve bought even more Grumpy Cat merc than I already have. I used to buy an ex of mine Grumpy Cat merch cause she was a big fan as well. Seven years old is too young for a kitty to pass on but it happens… They say that cats have nine lives, but for us cat lovers, we all know that nine lives is never enough. I hope that her brother Pokey is doing OK-as well as the rest of her family. R.I.P. Grumpy. I’ll miss you… 😦

5/14/2019-R.I.P. Tim Conway

-On May 14, 2019 Tim Conway passed away at the age of 85. I remember watching him on THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW and would laugh my butt off at how funny he (and the rest of the cast) was. One of my favorites with that show was whenever Tim was teamed up with Harvey Korman as he tried (in vain) to hold back laughing when Tim was doing his lines. It just made the skits even more enjoyable to watch. In 2018, Tim was diagnosed with dementia and his death was due to complications with Normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), of which dementia is a classic symptom. Above is one of my favorite skits of his with Harvey – “The Dentist” and below is a heartfelt tribute to Tim from Carol. R.I.P. Tim and thanks for the laughs.

5/3/2019-ACTING-Bonnie Gillespie’s FREE Acting Training Videos (21 in all) for May 2019

*UPDATED – MAY 19, 2019*
Back in 2011, when I started down the path of acting, the book store Borders was closing a whole bunch of their stores. I went in there and bought A LOT of books on various subjects-the two biggest ones were Music and Acting. I’ve always been a big reader and believe it’s a great pathway for learning. One of those books was BONNIE GILLESPIE‘s book SELF-MANAGEMENT FOR ACTORS. A great book and highly recommended (in fact, I need to read this again at least a few more times myself). In May 2019, Bonnie is celebrating 20 years of helping actors with the business side of things so, to celebrate that, she’s putting out 20 (plus one bonus) videos during the month of May. It’s great stuff and I will do my best to share them all in this post as they are online cause there’s great stuff in them. On her Facebook page, you can also see questions people ask in the comments as well as links to things mentioned in the various videos as follow-ups. Enjoy!

-“The Lamb” (DIRTY SWEATER PRODUCTIONS) can now be seen via Amazon Prime. Directed by Kyle Kleege. This dramatic, LGBTQ short film is about a priest who must test his faith in the face of temptation. I play the role of a bad guy-a sleazy High Roller-in this. I filmed on this back in 2017. Check out “The Lamb” on Amazon Prime via the link below.

3/16/2019-ACTING-Trailer & Release Date for “Drive”

DRIVE is a film I was part of back in 2016 and looks like it will premiere on April 26, 2019. Directed by Shadow C. LaValley & Shana H. Becker This is made up of several short films (check out the site for more info) and all funds raised from it will be for The International Child Art Foundation’s 6th World Children Fair. I kind of play the bad guy in one segment but it’s not so much that he’s bad as he’s ignorant about race. It was an interesting role, not one that I normally play. Not quite sure why I can’t embed the trailer here but you can see me on the trailer that’s on their site and no, I don’t know why there’s no sound in the trailer at the part when I’m speaking 🙂
