How are you doin? Anyway, I think I forgot to tell you last time, I got called in for another Rant. The two guys who run it are in the middle of doing a film, but they want to be able to continue to dish out a new rant per week, so they did some planning ahead and brought in their favorite Rantors and had a Rant marathon weekend and hashed’em out one after another. Usually each actor is given two, maybe three, but to ensure they used all their favorite actors, we were each only given one. As a kind of second rant, the guys had an idea. As I’ve said before, the Rants are also put up on youtube, which of course leads to comments. Cliff and Luis, the Rant guys, thought it would be great to do a Rant about the comments, which is now up. Great stuff.

(man I miss cable… especially food network. sitting here watching Master Chef)

Which reminds me.

Why am I awake right now? Well I’ll tell you. I got into a bit of trouble at work; I didn’t get fired, but was… punished. My punishment is now over, but my new days off are tonight and tomorrow night. Gonna take me a bit to get used to it… and possibly even longer to get used to my new co lead… yeesh.





So you’re just gonna leave and not tell me good blog…

So yeah. Lemme sum up. Didn’t get fired. But I got demoted, for 30 days. After that, I’m up for review to see if I can be a Team Lead again, of if I should remain an analyst. I already told my boss, I’ll take the punishment, I deserve it (I was late a lot in only a few weeks), but after 30 days if I’m still being punished when I work harder than some other leads who get away with murder, I won’t be in the next day.

But let us not dwell on the downers. That’s not this blog about. Acting stuffs and good things.

Moving on.

I was at work and got a text from a friend. Basically, she’s the stage manager for Aladdin at Scottish Rite Theater and one of their actors had to go to the hospital and they needed a replacement. I said sure, even though I didn’t know when, what role or that it was even at Scottish Rite, a place I swore I was done with. She then told me I was going to play Aladdin and the first show was THAT MORNING. I got the script around 2 AM and had till around 9 to be off book. If I were still a lead at work, I would have left the other lead in charge and just gone home to work on the script, but since it wasn’t up to me-well… we were pretty busy so its cool-I couldn’t leave till about 5:30.

I was able to get off book and the show went swimmingly. I had to sub for the actor again this morning, and I’m on call for Sat morning, if he’s still hospitalized. Doesn’t matter what it is, that’s his business, so I apologize for not sharing that info.

With how some things have been going this year, I kinda needed that pressure to prove myself. I needed something to really make me feel good about myself and that was it. I mean how much time did I have to prepare? And I didn’t drop any more than 3 lines. Go me.

Although I feel bad cause I missed an audition today, but that doesn’t matter! It won’t be the last audition I get.

Speaking of auditions! Alamo Drafthouse is holding auditions to be an Alamo Event Host. I submitted mine yesterday, which you can see here; many thanks to Josh Painting for helping me film it and he did all the editing. I did a search, just to see if I could check out my competition. I could only find one other guy and this chick. (kay… I found another one whilst looking for the links to hyperattach… that one was just too horrible to link. I’m not gonna do that to you.) Here’s hoping! If I get that, depending on how many gigs I get, that could probably be my main source of income and I could quit my job. Who knows we’ll see.

Still on the hunt for root beer extract.

Hmmm… I thought I had more to share… guess not.

That’s all from the Pulpit for now.
