Is it just me? I guess it must be.
This was by far the quickest 31 day month of my life.
How good it is to say that. Conversely, the previous
four were so long and grueling, I needed a May like
this. So busy, so much going on...so much excitement.
I was thinking about everything, and I have to
reiterate again: I got REALLY lucky. I say that
so much because my target audience for these entries
is people with showbiz dreams sitting in Columbus,
Ohio right now. Who I was 6 months ago...thinking
"I wish I had some sort of road map for how to
'make-it'"... So I say again, to those of you wishing
to follow their dreams...don't DARE expect to get this
sort of a break after gigging for 3 months. It just
doesn't happen like that. Prepare for years, and be
surprised otherwise...as I am.
As the days pass, the true scope
of Hollywood Screentest becomes clearer. It's truly
incredible what is on the horizon. It's hard to even
explain because the site doesn't give you too much
info, but it's there. There's now a link
on the site that shows all
the content they have for syndication that will give
you a bit of an idea where I'm headed. The
possibilities are endless, and on top of
everything...the gigs are still there. Just had one
tonight and how invigorating! You forget what it's
like to play for a crowd and have them react to the
sets. Tonight at Lulu's was awesome. More laughing
than I've ever seen....uhm heard. I've already decided
that the rest of my gigs are DONE for now. I'll play
lulu's once or twice a month and concentrate the rest
of my time on the tv show and other Hollywood
Screentest projects. Common sense. And the set-up is
also SUCH a bitch that I'll gladly take a break.
Anyway, I don't have the link up for the show
description yet, but I'll throw it up tomorrow. It was
All that's left is to say hold
onto your collective butts. This will be an exciting
summer. I doubt it will ever live up to the drama that
was our first 4 months here, but that's fine with
Oh, the voting...well I'm in the
top 5 of all 5 categories I'm entered into...lol - not
sure there's more than 5 candidates in each category,
but STILL... At the end of June, all my votes will be
compiled into my best category (most likely special
talent), at which point I simply compete against the
best males and females. So your votes really count. I
know it's complicated as hell, but if you got the
time, please vote
sometime during June. It'd be cool as hell to be on a
Let me also say hello to all the
CD101 staff that may be following all of this. I got
to hang out with everyone again last weekend, and it
was very cool. I certainly don't miss the stress of
being production director, but I do miss the people.
I'm honored that any of you would even bother to read
this, though I guess it's good for a laugh here and
there...the death of BL was worth the price of
OH AND WE FOUND AN EXACT MODEL TO REPLACE BL!!!!
So 4tvs lives on without an interrruption.
Unfortunately it seems that the other tv that fell
isn't doing too well either. We'll see how long that

it felt like I hadn't played in months.
The set-up was insane, everything was just
foregin. But it also made it fun. Audience
was truly digging it tonight. That's cool.
The new tv did it's part well. Didn't miss a
line or NOTHIN. LOL. Started slow again, and
then hit 'em with the offensive shit. Seems
like a good way to go. You just never know
how people are gonna take the comedy. A lot
of soul searching for this gig...I gotta say.
Why am I still doing this...went through my
head many times. It feels like I should
put 4tvs away for a YEAR or something until
I'm excited about it again, but once a month
is fine. And I love Lulu's...it's just
bustin' out at the seams with connections. So
I'll call her next week and get a few more
bookings. Either way, it's obvious where 4tvs
is heading and what my direction is. It
really makes the constant gigging seem for
not. Oh and the tip jar got a nice
filling...$13 BL got $7 - Bastard's first
night out and he beats me! TR got $5, and I
got $1. Oh and TL isn't doing to well. He was
the other TV that fell during the
accident. He still works, but he now has some
black lines that are going through his
screen. He may be on his last legs. Can't
tell but it's a hunch. So he's kind of like
the Bob Hope of the whole crew right now.
He's 97, but still alive. Anyway, great
Ahh yes, I almost
forgot, this entry's video! I dig
this one. It's for the "Talking Head"
category. I look so strange in a
suit, don't I? VIDEO
