Week 19 Review: Preparing for the Opportunity. Whatever it is...

I don't know if you have been able to keep up with me lately but I've made several posts this week. 
I think its a good for a change, plus I realized that I have a lot of questing inventory to put out on the shelf. In addition to that, I've been upgrading the lay out of my blog. Have you noticed the new organizational scheme of my blog on the right had side? I now have different category labels that link to the best highlights of the blog. There are also some web links listing resources for actors/hosts. Not to mention, links with information about attending your favorite live shows for free. 
As I've said before, this blog isn't just about my story but its also to help you specifically when you decide to relocate  to the "State where you'll never find the dance floor empty." On that note, I hope you take advantage. 

I estimate that I will be blogging almost everyday for the next week or two. I really have a lot to share. Plus most of the upcoming posts will probably include blog secrets, new videos or deep words of wisdom.

Take advantage man. Take advantage. 

Furthermore, I'm feeling good and I'm completely removed from the down hill slope that slowly fell upon me on week 17 & week 18. Now I'm ready to embrace my new challenges my quest has to offer. 

This is simply a review and a little shorter then my recent reviews. Enjoy and visit the links to my most recent posts.

Day 126 = Sunday, January 23, 2011 

Day 127 = Monday, January 24, 2011

* Vampire Masquerade Rehearsal 

* Improv Class 

Day 128 = Tuesday, January 25, 2011

* Vampire Masquerade Rehearsal  

* I attended a live taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live. I started paying more attention to Jimmy Kimmel when I moved to LA. I really like his style. I think his style mirrors closely to my inner late night personality more then the others. Its now a close race between Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'brien for my current personal favorite late night talk show host.

Day 129 = Wednesday, January 26, 2011

* New Post, New Video: Comedy Centrals Tosh.0 Promo

* After Vampire Masquerade rehearsal, the director treated the whole cast to some ice cream.

Motown Maurice: This is how vampires eat ice cream. Yum, Yum.
Day 130 = Thursday, January 27, 2011

* I had an audition for a baseball related commercial. They wanted Black guys with big hair. I think an Afro probably works best for this shoot. Everyone else had an Afro. I also had to bring a baseball bat with me. So I went to a sporting goods store, purchased a bat and later returned it. It was a pretty silly audition. I didn't enjoy it.  

* My improv class on Thursdays with Monkey Butler ended today but there are still other days to consider.

Day 131 = Friday, January 28, 2011

* Notification for an audition on Tuesday at Warner Brothers Studio came in today from my agent. This is my second audition at Warner Brothers Studio this month. My agent told me she knows of people who have tried to get into those gates for years but can't. She really feels excited for me and knows something big is going to happen. She's not sure if its this particular audition but she has a good feeling something great is going to happen. I feel it too. Thanks Sandy. 

I'm also happy that I've finally been notified about a worth wild audition in advance. I can actually prepare in advance. This audition is such a great opportunity that I've asked my agent if she know anybody that can help coach me for this audition. I'm happy to say my agents daughter who has experience with auditions is going to help me on Monday. What a blessing. I feel good, its time to be great.  

* For the first time in a while I stayed home all day. Mostly because I was working on my new reel. 

Day 132 = Saturday, January 29, 2011

* On the way to the a free accounting workshop for actors, an older gentlemen in a suit spoke to me and invited me to to some type of business meeting tomorrow. I figured it was one of those meetings to get me to join something. Our conversation was brief but he said over and over that he was so impressed with me. I told him I'll attend but I'm very focused and there is nothing that can derail me.

* A few of my guilty pleasures on weekends when I'm not doing anything important includes Denny's/Ihop and watching a few movies at the theater. Since there isn't anything great out right now I made it a Red Box weekend. My list of movies for today was The Town and Takers. I've seen Takers before but this time I was able to completely identify with all the scenes, locations and landmarks. Now that I've lived here long enough I realized that probably every movie that exist was probably shot in LA. lol

Final Thoughts

I've been submitting for a lot of work on the website LA Casting but I'm really not getting any responses. I'm not sure why but I'm glad my agent is really pulling through. I'm going to focus on making my profiles stronger and of course perfecting these great auditions that are coming my way. 

As I said get ready for a lot of new post. I have a lot to express and provide closure on plenty. I don't know if these actions are symbolic for anything but in the past doing things like that represents preparation for something new. What ever the case is, all I can do is prepare to meet the opportunity. Whatever it may be.

As the quest continues...
