Week 170: Q4 Success - Auditions - Brain Fried

Weekly Written Video 

I'm publishing week after/post Christmas and my brain is fried. I know the 4th Quarter Wrap Fest was amazing and I had a few pop up auditions I wasn't expecting. On Tuesday I got a lead that could of lead to something great but it didn't. Potentially, that lead may arise in 2014.

Final Thoughts

12 hour plus days doing background work. That can take a toll on a person. Mostly on your brain because we're just standing around doing nothing. The beer commercial was disturbing because after a while its easy to notice them putting all the people of color way in the the back, far away from the camera. Moreover, on Friday night I was in a different zone, I was brain storming like crazy. I ended episode 1 of season 3 of The Late Night Experiment and a few points for other episodes.

Week 168: Cold! Hungry! Sick! Bloated! Diarrhea!!!

Weekly Video Review

Last week, I premiered season 2 of The Late Night Experiment in front of a live audience and since then I've been really mellow. My mannerisms have been in a very relaxed pace and state. At least I've been like this around familiar people. Nonetheless, I didn't let my mellowness rule me. The same day season 2 went live on youtube, I went live on the streets of Hollywood Blvd to promote and pass out fliers. It was rough at first. I found most success patronizing Jimmy Kimmel's fans. Outside of them, I paced around for a while until I realized its better to past out filers standing still at a cross street. Its also much better when I'm passing out with someone. I shared some street space with a young man passing out fliers for a physic. He shared some pointers and his company made time fly by quicker. The goal was to pass out fliers everyday this week but things happened. I want to build a new audience but I'm not sure how effective his is. Of course I don't expect instant results but nothing is happening views or subscription wise on the channel. I did want I planned out to do and now I'll plan to do something more effective.

Thursday, December 5, 2013

* Car wash /workshop audition. This is was an out right ridiculous audition. It was ridiculous from the trickery side. They indicated that they wanted 70's looking guys for a workshop, so I came in with my platform shoes and my Afro. Come to find out we're auditioning for a singing and dancing musical. I had fun with it and did my best but really. What's the secret for? In terms of dancing, I thought I had a good start but after they added the first spin that was it for me. We also had a sing. I sang, "I want to get next to you," Rose Royce. Need I say more!

* This is when week started going down hill. I didn't know if it had something to do with the amount of Guava I ate yesterday but I wasn't feeling great today. My taste buds needed a lift so I got a quartetr chicken meal from Dino's. That move ended up being a big mistake. From 3pm to 3am and beyond I stayed in bed. The next day when it all came out. Literally.

Friday, December 6, 2013

* Because of distance and sickness I missed being a part of a Starving in Hollywood skit.

* While trying to combat my bloated stomach my brain stormed up a post mail idea.

* Late hours into the night, everything I ate for the past two days came out. I can't recall the last time I threw up like that. It was terrible. And my bowels wouldn't stop moving.

Saturday, December 7, 2013

* Sick and all, I took my idea to the post office.

They will know who I am. 
Final Thought

Cold! Hungry! Sick! Bloated! Diarrhea!

For the first time all year I coudn't stand the thought of sardines, tuna fish and crackers. I didn't want to touch it. I have now declared December NO SARDINES AND TUNA DECEMBER. Most of this week, all I could think about is being home in Tampa with my loving mother and good food. Then I got sick. I've never had so much gas in my life. Not to mention my profuse use of the toilet. Despite this set back, I can only wonder. I wonder if I would of came up with that post mail idea if I wasn't sick. Late Friday night/early Saturday morning on my knees on my bed (trying to position the gas out my rectum and/or mouth) I randomly came up with the idea to send my latest flier to the likes of Conan, Arsenio, Kimmel... I never had the desire to mail these guys before but there is something about my flier that I love. It says a very strong message in a few words. No phone number. Its just a clear message. I'm emerging. Truthfully, I didn't send it to be discovered, my purpose of sending it is for them to know who I am.

Week 167: Miracle on season 2 Street and Q4 Street - Conversation Confirmation

Weekly Written Review

The word miracle is the best way to describe this week. The core focus of this week was the season 2 screening of The Late Night Experiment. I was hoping for a strong turnout but we had an approximate strong and loyal 25 or so. The series was received very well from the audience. I was even able to get some on camera feed back with the assistance of a reporter friend. That's not even the best part. Weeks before the event I communicated with the owner about details. At one point he mentioned a price which I thought was great compared to other quotes I was getting. Then for some reason, as we got closer I would ask questions about the payment and I wouldn't get a response to those particular questions. To make a long story short. The event came and passed. Miracle! I got everything I envisioned on the premiere night. I even got personal confirmation of an observation I always suspected. I'll explain that in the final thoughts.

You'll notice in the photos below that my Thanksgiving was pathetic but I could careless. The every next day redeemed a treat far great than any meal. Not really but it felt like that.

The 4th Quarter Wrap Fest is coming up and I've spent no time planning it. As a matter of fact its two weeks away on December 15th. My priorities was the season 2 premiere. As soon as it ended, I was able to shift focus. My initial vision was to have it as an invite event only. Rent out a house or a hotel room. In less then 48hrs I realized it was a dead idea. It just wasn't working out. Cottages charge for each person you bring in and hotel parking prices are ridiculous. Then on Friday, as I stressing, rubbing my temples trying to figure out what to do next I heard a voice echo in my head. At the premiere, a lady who I think I briefly met before told me I should bring one of my events to her location. Its a museum and library in Culver City. I'm familiar with the location because I've attended a few 3A's meetings there. Plus a gentlemen by the name of Bill Wynn always encouraged me to use the facility. When she mentioned the location at the premiere I didn't even put any thought into it.

Not until Friday afternoon did it resurface back to mind. I called Bill Wynn he give me her number. She invited me to their event the next day. I attended. She put me in contact with the main person who briefly remember meeting me at a previous 3A's meeting. I wanted Saturday the 14th. It was booked. He suggested Sunday the 15th. I thought about it for a moment and I took it. That's not even the miracle part of it. He asked for my budget. I hesitated and asked for a price range. More than once he told me I can't afford their prices. Finally, I told him a modest but in my mind respectable range. In disbelief he cut $50.00 from what I offered and said bring cash on the day off. That was it. I couldn't believe it.

I truly don't know who I pulled that off. God. Prayers. Faith... I really can't believe it. In addition to that, the location is amazing. I'm excited about exposing my audience to this historic location. I'm sure myself and some of them once exposed to it will possibly use the facility in the very near future.

Final Thoughts 

Since early October a particular somebody reentered my life on a personal level and everyday since then she had me wondering whether she really like me or not. A man just knows when a woman likes him. I asked myself this question every since I met her. Its been a bit of a roller-coaster for the past couple of months. I mean, the thought of her was completely canceled from existence and then October came. There where moments when I could say, "Yes, she likes me." Most of the time I was confused. Furthermore, I'm always observing. Its what I do best. On the day of my premiere I found myself asking her two lone questions. Way before the event started, I asked her, "Have you decided if you're going to like me or not today." I never got a complete answer. Later in the night when the event was completely over. I figured it out. My second and last question implied what I figured out and provided the closer I needed. She admitted to my observation and that's all that I needed. I won't mention what I figured out but just now it was a deal breaker for me.

Now everything makes complete sense to me. It explains why I was so aggressively trying to push her away previously. When it comes to relationships, I have made drastic decisions over the past decade that can't be explained in the moment. Later as time progresses, its revealed why things had to end. Destruction is justified. Oh how I would love a special somebody but...but...but...I digress.

Week 166: Patience Activated! - Focus Editing!

Weekly Written Review

As I write (Wednesday, Nov. 27th), I'm a few days past needing to complete this post. Now that the screening of season 2 is complete, I feel a relief. Yesterday, was the premiere and it was a success. More info coming in week's 167 post. Of course much has happened since this week 166 was completed. Which means it heavily influences my recap right now. Nonetheless, lets review. Business wise, there's nothing new. I missed a few more auditions this week, continuing the pattern from last week. Editing consumed my life of course but it went along smoothly. The computer that I ordered to get the editing done is working like a charm. I never experienced such proficient editing before now. Editing season 2 of The Late Night Experiment is what I've been doing and honestly there is nothing exciting to convey about editing. My personal life on the other hand has been making the headlines a lot lately. See final thoughts for more.

Final Thoughts

Last week (week 165) I begged myself back into the life of a particular young lady. The remaining of that weekend leading into Sunday of this week was depressing. I wanted to talk to her but she needed time to get her feelings back, so she texted. Finally we spoke on Monday of this week and we seemed to be on the path of hope. For this to happen, I had to press the patience button. For the first time in over a decade, I'm converted my mind set to seek out a healthy relationship. I reactivated my sensitivity levels and put to use some of my emotions once again. No more pushing any her away. I'm relaxed, I'm patient and I'm hopeful. At least somewhat hopeful. My problem with his girl is that she doesn't act like a girl that likes me. Of course she likes me but I had reason to believe she doesn't like me like that. I'm always happy to be a round her and talk to her but a day doesn't go by when I'm not wondering if she's really into me. A couple pre-planned industry related appointments brought us together twice as usual. She never makes plans with me. We never make specific plans with each other. Saturday night she said she was going to call me back before she went to bed and she didn't. That' rubbed me the wrong way. The next day I avoided her calls and only intended to call her back if she left a message. She called me twice that day and not until Monday of week 167 did she finally leave a message.

Its been over a month of back and forth with this girl. We were cool. Then I pushed her away. I'm doubtful, I'm hopeful, I'm hopeless. Well, as of right now. Wednesday, November 27th I can officially say its over. Last night at my season 2 screening, I made an epic observation that confirmed our relationship has been roadkill from the start. I'll explain in next weeks post.

Week 165: Its Time To Make a Change - I Surrender - Season 2 Focused!

Weekly Written Review 

So much editing. I basically live in front of the computer right now. Well, I've kind of always lived in front of a computer. That's not new. Furthermore, there were moments when I had to leave the house but I honestly did not want to go. I wanted to stay put in from my adobe suite and edit. Its a mental challenge to switch gears from intense editing to improv and auditioning. In terms of auditions, my attendance is fairly flawless. I've attended the vast majority of them. This week I had to evaluate. Whats more important, these auditions that I don't ever book or my web series. My projects is far more important. As a result, I made conscious decision to miss some auditions. Nothing from my agent or anything but smaller roles $100.00 or less compensation. The reality is I'm a horrible actor and the fact that I'm focused on editing will make my acting even more horrible. I don't have the mind set to even review any sides or work on character breakdowns. Chances are I wouldn't get the part but if I did, its not even fair to the project because I won't be focused on it until my project is complete.

The life of an editor isn't that exciting but I'm getting things done on a great time schedule. On the personal side of things...I surrender.

At the end of the shoot she started hugging everyone and distinctly told me, "I'm saving you for last." When she hugged me to told me, "Thank you, I rather have someone who gives too much than give to little."

Final Thoughts

For over a decade, I've became a practitioner of pushing women away. Its become my natural ability. For the pass couple weeks, one young lady in particular have experienced my wrath. On Wednesday, we had a conversation and I made her tell me there will never be a chance between us. I thought that's what I needed to hear from her to close our chapter and move on. The next day I was begging for forgiveness. Asking for one last chance. That's not like me. I don't do that. I push women away and I move on with my quest. I've even pushed this girl away previously and moved on but this time something wasn't right. It wasn't sticking. While depressingly waiting for her to call me back I realized its time for a change. Yeah, I'm good a pushing women away but its time to learn to be good at keeping a woman around. I can't tell you the last time I had a girlfriend. I sometimes question whether or not I ever really had a girlfriend. I certainly never introduced a girl as my girlfriend before. Moreover, in my asking for one more chance segment I told her I was miserable without her. This is the thing...I have a bunch of patience with my quest but when it comes to women, it doesn't exist. I've wanted my relationships to run like a business. That narrow train of thought has got me to where I am today. I justify much of my actions in the past but its not working anymore. I really like this girl. Which means I have to reconnect with my human side.

Man in the mirror represents the coming of change but I actually wasn't singing that song this week. I was singing a MJ related soon though. As far as I can remember whenever I'm singing or thinking of a Michael Jackson song those are clear signs that I got it bad. Real bad.


With a new state of mind I'm now working my way to her heart patiently.

In other news, I completed Breaking Bad this weekend. I really enjoyed the end of season 4 and all of season 5. It was a brilliantly done. I can't say all the episodes in the series did it for me but it was overall satisfying. Many of the characters remain on my mind and I do kind of miss the series. I don't plan to watch it again but I found a mini documentaries about it on youtube. Its enjoyable watching it from that perspective.

Week 164: Quest Patience Level Full, Personal Patience Level Zero

Weekly Written Review 

For the second week in a row, no video review and I'm loving it. Everything needs a break at times. The main focal point of this week was to finalize a location for the season two screening of The Late Night Experiment and edit, edit edit. Mission accomplished. I was having real challenges finding a decent sized location and like a rainbow Busby's East finally contacted me back. After calling and emailing multiple times in previous weeks, I gave up on them. Finally, the owner emailed me back on Thursday. Its a perfect location and much much better prices. When I wasn't looking for a location I was editing a lot and I must say its looking great. Less than two months ago I was stoked about Late-Night Jelly but that's nothing compared to how epic season two is going to be. I've completed a draft for the majority of the scenes and its the detail I'm going to apply for the next two weeks is whats to make this so great.

Final Thoughts

Continuing from last week, I must say this week started off in a way that surprised me. A dinner date conversation over fish that ended with a kiss. 3 kisses to be exact. All would suspect that things have been patched up and I would stray away from my destructive ways. Nope, not me. I found a way to blow things up. What triggered it this time? One key thing: inconsistencies. Followed by a bunch of stuff I don't want to type about. Its nothing serious. I just don't have that kind of time to type. I won't deny, its mainly me. I have a zero tolerance and impatience for women and certain relationship strands that comes with it. On the contrary, when it comes to my quest and my business endeavors, I have all the patience in the world. With women, zero. The moral to this issue is keep away from text-ing. Its of the devil. It brings out a monster in me. I wouldn't say 90% of what I text.

Power Note: The visions of what I'm going to do with my upcoming promotional campaign brings me power. A few times this week, I had to shout it. I can't wait to hit the streets with my plan of action. My time is soon coming. I can't feel it.

Week 163: Video Oops! Hot Hand of Booking and Personal Destruction

Weekly Video Gone

I made a foolish mistake. I was having problems opening some apps on my phone and I decided to reset it. I thought I downloaded my video review but I didn't. I also thought it was saved on my micro sd card. Well its gone forever. We'll never see the video review for this week ever again. In distress, I got to thinking. Lets be real. My video reviews suck. I'm not really talking about nothing. My quest has become repetitive in terms of delivery and all I'm really talking about is personal garbage. The lost of this video inspired the need for me to give these video reviews a break.

Talk about a slinging a yo-yo. I considered trying to make it but because the whole situation was a message. They only gave me two hours to arrive and I had to help Neon Venus out anyway.

* I started to send a disastrous text to a particular person but for some reason it wasn't sending. Well waiting for it to send, she called. It was a breath grasping moment. Luckily, I was able to cancel the text while talking to her.

Final Thoughts 

This week was pretty amazing. I got the hot hand out of no where. I started working on a Monday with some background. Its always great to start a Monday with some work. On that same Monday, I received multiple calls about work later in the week. I ended up double booking myself on Wednesday. I called and told them I couldn't make it, then the lady from MTV told me, "Awwww, and you were my favorite one Motown." Good news is they had additional days later in the week and I worked the gig on Friday.

On a personal note, my usual destruction was prominent. I had a great thing going but through text messages I destroyed it. Unlike many previous occasions, I tried to save this one. On the phone I requested we met in person to talk things out and I was denied. The next day, Thursday, I called left a message and made one last plead and figured I would never hear from her again. To my surprise, she called on Saturday. You'll have to turn in next week to find out what actually happened.

Final Thoughts

I'm accustomed to making great decisions so when I made a decision that lead me to missing an opportunity to be on the show Glee it truly bothered me. As a matter of fact, I'm still not completely over it.  Moreover, this was a great week. It was full of love and companionship from a very special to me. The night ended with some Scandal and... Its just a matter of time before I mess this one up. Since I'm a week behind on my blog I can confirmed that I'm on schedule. I already messed it up. The question is can it be fixed. I'm so horrible with women. I have to do is not push them away. Why? Why? Why?

Final Thoughts

My blog videos lately don't justify how great my weeks have been. I've been focusing on the worst part. That just comes to show how one little thing can shift energies immediately.  Besides the wack girl that was officially dismissed and losing my phone, I've been building some significant relationships.  Most significantly, as of Thursday, I joined the cast of developing television program for kids. Its called Whats Poppin. More on that coming soon.

Final Thoughts

I'm always empty after a big event but when the wrong woman or person is apart of your life, it drys you for everything you have.

What I didn't address in the video was the fact that I sent a bunch of goals for myself amid this week. Post my anniversary I had plans to put out a new video Monday through Friday until December 31st. Quest Coach was the main segment. Project aborted. My new found company is the reason why I wasn't able to pull it off. I allowed her to occupy my attention. This is a first for me. I always complete my goals/tasks. At the same time, I am thankful. Trying to complete that goal plus editing season 2 of The Late Night Experiment and event planning is way too much. I'm glad things panned out the way they did. Its the most logical reasoning for this odd situation. The short yet pleasure run with that person basically ended after Saturday night. It was a cool pit stop but I'm back on path completely. No more pit stops anytime soon.

Ariana Grande - Baby I - Music Video Release

Scene Locations: Beginning (0:04 - 0:09) and the ending (2:49-3:10). Also in the street scenes,I'm in the background wearing the bright aqua blue shirt.

Behind The Scenes: Week 150: This Week I Can't Remember... 

Final Thoughts

I'm impressed with the amount of times I'm seen in this video. Considering the fact that they removed me from the street car scene because they felt like they were seeing too much blue (I'm not going to lie, I was camera aggressive. I had everyone around dying laughing). At that point, I was disappointed because shortly after they removed me, all the people I was with got camera close ups. They didn't even end up using any of those close ups. The last scene of the day is where I made my debut. In the final product, I ended up being featured more than the features.
