Good morning! I have three auditions coming up so far (always good news). Now I have to get ready for doing photo shoots all day. I'd say more, but really, I have to get ready. Ya hablamos!

- Kerry Washington
We took a walk in the blizzard last night. We do that kind of thing. See those white streaks in the image? That's blowing snow.
Speaking of the blizzard, New Media Comedy re-released Blizzard Buddies yesterday, too:
I had one voiceover audition last week, and I'm now getting ready for another one for tomorrow. Tim had an audition for a new show, and he has an audition tomorrow, too (his is for a commercial). Send positive vibes our way!
Who's going to start learning Italian? Mi! In case you didn't know this, "mi" is Italian for "me." That wasn't a typo.
"This isn't about a show. It's about truth and integrity and honesty and communication, bravery and risk, and adjectives that should make you get out bed in the morning, excited to be what it is you choose to be." - Jamie Lee Curtis
I received some unusual job offers this week. Some maybe not so unusual ("Let me guess: you won't pay me, but it will be great exposure? Right. No."), but the potential radio DJ position came as a surprise. We'll see on that one. If we can work out a comfortable time frame and pay scale, why not? I'll update you guys on it by next week. ¡Ya hablamos!
"It'd be disingenuous to say I don't like attention - I'm an actor for God's sake" - Paul Giamatti
I'm going to be narrating another audio book! I even get to use accents in this one (Austrian and Palestinian so far, but I haven't finished the book yet. There could be more).
Also saw that Melissa McFarlane, who I've taken a business-planning class from before, is offering another course:
The first is the New Year ReCHARGE Workshop in January to plan your year and get your mindset ready for a great year, then 3 days of really practical, step-by-step business building at her breakthrough event called Play BIG! 2016 in February.
She was very helpful to me, so I can't recommend her enough!
I had what was probably my worst audition ever a few days ago. Kind of a long story, but it involved incorrectly replacing snapped guitar strings and me not having the skill set to play the new ones correctly. All actors have nightmare audition stories, so I knew mine was coming sooner or later. I'm just happy I wasn't auditioning for something bigger!

Happy New Year!
I have three auditions over the next five days to get ready for. That's a great sign for what's to come in 2016! Who knows what's even coming up for the second week of January!
Where's a good place to learn Taekwondo? Not for a role at this point. I just think it'd be awesome to learn.
"I so much enjoy being able to completely allow myself to be consumed by a role, and really grow in the process. Once you've done that, it's hard to go back working on things you don't care about."
- Jennifer Connelly
