|Hurry Up and Wait Episode 12 - The Imaginary Girlfriend (the Peter Coffin skit)
Episode 12 is up!
There is a couple of significant things going on in this episode:
1. This is the first skit that is long form. In other words, one skit for the whole episode (well, a skit and a half, and you'll see why)
2. It boasts the largest crew we've ever used.
3. The only contributions I made to this skit were editing and executive producing. It was written and directed by someone else and produced by another person.
"Hurry Up and Wait" is no longer a one man operation. My core group has really stepped up their game as they went and organized the whole shoot without me since I was handling the Labyrinth of Jareth shoot.
All I had to do was show up.
It kinda blows my mind.

|Hurry Up and Wait Episode 9 - Fairy Tale Time
I'm particularly proud of this one.
There are two sketches that are noteworthy. One is a sketch called "Fairy Tale Time" where I created the ENTIRE animation from scratch. Every. Frame.
The other is a skit inspired by Andy Warhol called "With Thoughts of Myself." It is the artsiest skit I have ever produced. It will be evident which one that is.

|One of the few times I'll be in front of the camera.
For my show, "Hurry Up and Wait" (www.hurryupandwait.tv), I'm usually directing and editing. In my own show, I've only made a physical appearance maybe twice in all the skits (although I do a fair amount of voiceovers).
So this following video is a change. One of my cast members, John Basset, directs some videos to promote his LARP, TwinMask, (www.twinmask.com), and he directs concepts related to the culture or the unusual professions in his LARP.
So to help him out, I wanted to do a shoot to help him promote his LARP. At the time, I was already planning to play a noble because I've never played that kind of character before. But also I thought it would be fun to twist this a concept and make him constantly drunk.
When you marry the two concepts together, we came up with a drunken noble, or a "Dirty Noble." His inspiration is a cross between Paris Hilton and Prince Harry (closer to Prince Harry, a royal who is known for his partying) So this video was directed by John and written and acted by me.
So yes, this will be one of the few times I will act on camera for someone's shoot.

|Hurry Up and Wait - Episode 7
Admittedly, in this episode, I go all TMZ and pander to seach engine popularity with using Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan references in skits.
And Japanese Lolita girls. But that's beside the point.
Also, this episode is significant because it marks the first time we have three directors on an episode. There is more and more collabolration happening.

|In case I did not mention it here...
My show "Hurry Up and Show" is now listed on imdb.com!http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1854778/
This is a pretty huge achievement for me, because even though I know it is a show, it feels officially
like a real show, you know? An actor can work on my show and be given legitimate acting credit.
Also, there is an actual application process to get your show listed so I had no clue if it would ever be approved. But it meant the people at imdb.com had to check out my website and channel to determine if it qualifies as a "show." And thankfully it does.
Although this does not mean I can rest easy (I want more viewers after all), I do need to sit down and let it sink in and acknowledge it.
...but I did achieve a life goal: Be a producer of my own show.
Now to make it better! Current Mood: bouncy

|Episode 6 of "Hurry Up and Wait"
The reason why this episode is meaningful to me is because I have an aerial silks performance in it.
Yes, this skit has stuntwork in it.

|Episode 3 of "Hurry Up and Wait," The Killer Sheep, is now up!
So this is the first episode where I start to add other writers to my show and where I now take longer skits and break them up into two or more sections. It seems more natural than forcing everythin to be 30 seconds.
As always, let me know what you think!

|Army of Lovers (a poem)
Give me an army
An army of lovers
Who won't fight for ideas
But will fight for each other
Who won't battle for thoughts
To propel them through fights
But they will fight for embraces
In the darkest of nights

|Project updates so far.
Yesterday, did a shoot with my friend, Sebastian, for my experimental webseries concept.
On initial upload, the footage looks good. I did not expect for a cat to punch him square on the nose.
No, I did not get that on videotape. But I have a bunch of other things, though. Have to edit it tonight. I will be doing a lot of shoots this weekend and awaiting voice tracks from one of my friends in the Midwest.
It's kind of kewl. I was not expecting to get anyone involved outside of LA, but I wanted to give it a try. I *might* actually have enough material after this weekend for an episode involving at least 6 different actors. But I want to compile 4 episodes first before launching. Just because.

|It's been a while since I wrote here.
Because I've been writing elsewhere.
This is my poetry book. I'm intending to use the sales of the book to raise money to do production. But before I can promote production, I have to promote this book first.
I have different ideas on promoting the book (all of it out of my own pocket, of course). But right now, I'm open to any ideas whether it be changing my website (which I'm planning to do anyway), ads, and/or getting it into the right hands.

|The Hobbit in Under 2 Minutes
The Brothers Grim and Grimy strike again, this time with "The Hobbit in Under 2 Minutes."
And we somehow tie it in with the Big Lebowski.
I have writing credits in this one!

|Orphan Burn pics.
Last Friday, I went to Orphan Burn, which is a party for those who could not afford or go to Burning Man. I got invited by the hosts because I can read tarot cards. They even set up a small tent that people had to crawl through in order to get readings. At one point, I had a LONG line of people waiting for me to read them. I went in costume as the "Blind Seer" which is the same concept that I did in Labyrinth of Jareth but I took it a step further.
Also at this party were people such as fire poi spinners, chain dancers, aerialists, makeup artists, hula hoop dancers etc. When the Burning the Wicker Man ceremony occured, this asked me to conduct it. I conducted it in a black robe, blindfold, scar makeup and approaching a fire pit with constructed mini wicker man. Think of a voodoo doll made of sticks.
I started off with "That which does not love you, cast into the fire."
Then I went into a trance and start to say things that needed to be cast into the fire: Discontent. Disappointment. etc.
But in the end somehow, I started to scream about passions and screamed: "Rage. RAGE. RAGE!!!!" with all of my soul.
The crowd of 100 people around me yelled gutterally into the night air at midnight around the fire. With that, I threw the wicker man into the fire. It was a very intense ceremony and I felt privileged that the people picked me to officiate.
I was very happy to bring quixotickitten
to be the photographer. This has been her best work yet.( Photos shown behind cutCollapse )
