Whew. Just the
mention of the name makes me wince a bit. Let's just
get it out of the way, shall we?
frrom 2006 that just ripped me a new asshole and
nearly drowned me had it not been for Living Room
Live. So you don't have to try and figure it out,
I was booked on the show, and then pulled within
24 hours without a reason. To this day, don't know
why. It strung on and on, and I ended up quitting
my job to focus on it and lost everything.
I watched the first show and was just completely
disheartened by how tacky it came off and really have
never returned to the concept of that
I called Daniel. Let us introduce
Daniel. Daniel McCoy takes us all the way
back to Entry #345, in the summer of 2004.
The Trinitrons 3 shoot, when Adam fired
the group and actors replaced 'em. Daniel
is the first goofy white dude trying to
act like G. I actually still have
quite the soft-spot for this show, and
loved being able to pull off the ending
live. (Adam gets stuffed in the TV, and
Cameron walks out). Fun times.
really busy after that, I got really
divorced... and we lost touch. Cut to
nearly 6 years later and I'm watching
Ellen (a show he worked on) and I just
wondered what the hell he was up
...that, and come
on - I'm desperate as fuck right now and need help.
I really, really, really need help. I'm calling
all contacts, calling all favors. I'm out of ideas,
spinning like crazy - and the bottom line was, Daniel
and I used to laugh a whole bunch. I actually met
him when I was workin' at the chiropractor's
office and... fuck you know what's so weird? That
period of my life actually is yellow and green because
of The Journey colors. How bizarre is this?
I have permanently changed my memory. ALl of my
memories are now The Journey. Not immediately of
course, but after about 5 or 6 years? Christ that's
just strange. Rambling, sorry...
So I find his
number through a gmail search, and just call him out
of the blue. Come to find out, he thought I had
sold the house and moved to NY. I do love this
about The Journey. Depending on which entries you
happen upon? You create an entirely different story.
So let's say, you happened on the one entry in 2005
where I wanted to move, skipped over the next
entry where I just couldn't bear to leave my dogs
- then jumped a year and saw the Central Park video
with Donna? You put it all together... I moved to
New York, found a new love - and all is happy. Oh the
stories that dear reader has missed. But I like
that story. I actually wanna hear that one.
Daniel is an audio
guru who is now working with Idol, and of course
America's Got Talent. He simply said he could hook me
up directly with one of the producers and it's now
this entry. This is something most people just
wouldn't mention until there was more info - but every
once and awhile you get that feeling in your gut. And
it's a moment where you have to ask yourself:
"You ready to put your energies in this direction?"
The 4tvs act, in cute little 2 minute vignettes was
perfect for that show. I have no doubt that now,
in HD with flat screens (along with the fact that
I can do the characters every week with my wigs,
etc), this would get on the air and do well. There's
some hurdles to jump, an assload of money to put up
again as I did with Comedy Central (but was able
to return the stuff, not so this time), but again, you
just kinda know where this is heading. This is one of
those phone calls. If I jump on this it will take up a
good chunk of my life (and credit) putting it
So what do
I do? I write it on The Journey, and upload
it as fast as I possibly can so I have no
choice but to do it. This will hold me accountable. I
meet with Daniel in about a week, when he gets back in
Now, onto the rest
of the people I've ever known in what has become the
tethered ends of my rope. Calling all contacts.
Calling all contacts. Come in contacts...
PS - for those
wondering about the "April Fools" joke,
I was rather lame this year, since I just
launched the FOUR website. Truth be told, I'm too down
to have fun with it this year. However, I did
have some fun on Facebook:
And the truth is?
That is the truth. I am still married. The paperwork
still hasn't gone through with Donna. So, ha!
