I've got three auditions to get ready for, and I'm having a lot of fun creating the characters for them!
On top of that, today is Tim's birthday. Yes, really! Go ahead. Go wish him Happy Birthday. I'll wait here.
Welcome back! Here's the quote of the week:

"I think it comes from far away inside me, to be strong to survive everything that comes my way."
- Maggie Cheung
I'm now going to get to perform scenes, poetry, and prose every week with Bootscrape Entertainment! Can't wait to start!
Also had an excellent callback and an excellent audition. All in all, a great week!
"I just like a good story. I want the story to be good and I want the character to be different than the last one I played. That's not always possible, but that's what I want." - Garret Dillahunt
My show was awesome! Here's a picture from it:
No, I'm not pregnant in real life. It's just a costume, so no worries! I had so much fun playing the character, though, so I'm so happy I got to do it.
Now I'm getting ready for another audition. As always, on to the next!

I had an audition this week and now am prepping for two more for this coming week. Also got to see the book cover I posed for:
There's going to be a book launch party on August 11th at Oak Bluffs in Martha's Vineyard. I'll post more details as August approaches.
Also had a fabulous rehearsal for a showcase I'm in next week:

What an excellent week! Had a fun shoot, a great audition, and now I'm getting for another one.
"I like to go to new places. To specify, it is to say that I like not knowing. I like knowing when I get there. I know when it starts coming around and it raises the hair or it doesn't. I was trained in the theater. So it was instilled in me as a young performer to take chances and not to worry about all that, because failure is a part of growth. If you're gonna fail, fail big and take chances. So I've done that, or I've tried to do that."
- Denzel Washington
Had another fun audition plus great rehearsals for the showcase I'm in for mid-April. Can't wait!
"I can't play anything until I find something that connects to my life, something I can carry as my secret map or code for the character." - Will Patton
