Bummer. Didn't win the eveo thing.
Didn't even place. Surprised actually...I think my
tape didn't make it to them really. Ya see, everyone
who entered got $100 - which is cool in itself...and I
have yet to get my check which was supposed to be out
BEFORE the announcement. Oh well I've emailed them
asking, we'll see what happens.
The worst is that they didn't
update until 7:15 PM. I spent all day checking
THAT and my ebay auction - CONSTANTLY. What a
stressful few hours. I fared pretty damn well on the
ebay auction. I got $55.02 for my 2 unopened Dreamcast
guns. Freakin' gamecave.com overshipped
AND overcharged me last year. Glad I could
get my money back.
So 1 of my 3 contests
is over and I am a comlete loser. Jesus 22
short films made it into the final run for
the $25,000 - I can't believe Bread
in The Freezer didn't come close. Oh well.
It's all subjective. Anyway, you can check
out my reaction to seeing my name
NOT on the list RIGHT HERE
in living color. The disappointment is
minimal, because the Stern contest is the
one I'm really confident
And now the amazing news on that
contest. He's announcing the top ten finalists either
Friday or Monday...
AND FLYING THEM TO THE SHOW FOR THE
ANNOUNCEMENT THE FOLLOWING THURSDAY.
So basically, all I have to do is
be tenth best, and I have a trip to New York next week
and a spot on his show. I simply cannot IMAGINE
not being considered in the top ten with what I've
heard. I really hate to get my hopes up, but
I have to win this one. I was bummed about
eveo, but I'll be PISSED about this Stern thing. My
only problem could be that the majority of the songs
were written ABOUT one of the people on the show. And
they seemed to like that. My song is about my
girlfriend being a lesbian, but me thinking she's just
bi. It's generic funny as opposed to specifically
about them. So there's a big subjective part to all
this. If it's just based on how well done it is...I
should have no problem being in the top ten. And can
you imagine? I want this one BAD.
So here's the kicker...Stern is
delayed out here...because if he were live he'd come
on at 3 AM. And who the hell would listen to him then?
Well me. Late Thursday night, early Friday morning,
I'm gonna be on dialpad.com with my Uncle Aa...ahem
from now on I must refer to him as "My favorite
Uncle Aaron" in Columbus listening to the show. What
sucks is I don't know when they're gonna announce it.
But I will be listening. I'm extremely excited. This
is the biggest thing that's happened since I've been
out here - and funny..it's on the other side of the
Of course there's still the
MTV Contest which actually ends tomorrow. So if
you haven't voted, again, here's how to do
-at the end of the first paragraph
there's a red link that says: "so if you want to be a
talent scout click here now"
-fill out the form (about 3
minutes of shit) - (if you've already done that you
can skip to the next step)
-when you get your pin number
click "talent scout" at top of screen
-then click callbacks in that
You're in! I'm in the "Male
Special Talent" category (2nd of 3 guys)... All you do
is put a check in that little vote box. The page
refreshes and you're done.
The next entry will be the big
one. I can't believe I videotape me in my most
private of reactions and put them on the net for the
world to see. Someday, someday this will be an
incredible thing to look back on. For now, I will
be so incredibly disappointed if I'm not in the top
ten. Keep your fingers crossed for me. And please vote
Thank you so much...and keep your
ears tuned Friday morning...
Man, what a shitty way to start
the month...or a great way - AAAHHHHH I can
barely stand it!
