Week 96: Temporary Fish Out of Water Complex

Weekly Video Review Here: 

This video review was horrible. My apologies. I don't fully express myself well when I'm walking around with the camera. As you noticed my eyes are everywhere. I like to beware of my surrounds then to be completed focused on the camera in situations like that. What I would like to reiterate is what has become clear and obvious. I'm not talented. I'm a goofy looking guy with a sickening work ethic and a highly developed imagination. Over time, I've considered many aspects of life and I've embraced several aspects of the entertainment industry. In conclusion, I'm not fit for anything else other than to be a late night talk show host. Terrible audition after audition, its proven and reaffirmed. In the mean while, during this "Period of Patience." A period I'm oh so familiar with (Even with experience I don't like it and I never will like it). A period in which I have no choice but to embrace this Temporary Fish Out of Water Complex. That's exactly what I've been trying to express this whole week and the right words didn't come to me until now.

Casting Director Mariko acknowledged me by name again upon arriving into the room and she even asked me where was my flashy lit earrings before we started. I told her, "I didn't think it was appropriate for this audition." Her response was, "The lights are always appropriate." Mariko also had a unique approach to this audition. An approach in which I've never seen before. At least I've never seen it as fast as she composed it.

After myself and about 5 others answered questions about what game apps we like to play with in our phone. Mariko told us to leave the room and if she returns with our head shots that means we can go home. She basically did a call back in the matter of mins. I got the call back. The next session just involved us playing with our phones. I haven't heard back since.

Read Post: Mid Week Update: Was It Too Easy?

With a invite from my friend Kyriaki, I made a return to Monkey Butler Improv School.

Monkey Butler Improv.
Motown Maurice & Michelle Moreno
Its been over a year since I attended a Monkey Butler Improv class. When I started last year, I was simultaneously informed that that specific chapter will be closing in 3 classes. I believe my schedule since then increased which is why I didn't attend any of the other chapters at different locations. I don't have any photo graphic record of the classes I attended but here are the dates of the days I attended:

First Class: Thursday, January 13, 2011  Second Class: Thursday, January 20, 2011
                                   Third Class: Thursday, January, 27, 2011

The brightest side of my return my surprising reunion with my first Monkey Butler instructor, Michelle Moreno. It was a glorious yet brief reunion. Michelle, who is a huge Conan fan was giving my official approval to still have Conan as her top favorite when I claim my throne in late night. In appreciation of my consent, Michelle said, "Thank you, my favorites will then be Conan, Motown Maurice followed by Jimmy Fallen. :-)
