I'm not sure
whether to laugh or cry about how this is turning out.
I know, in the end, I don't care how I get
there -- I just want to get there. But mother
fucker, if I get some sort of fame for a goddamn
4-Square reality show after recreating the FREAKING
heaven and earth with The Egos... well, I'm just gonna
accept it. The insanity of this entry is proof that
Hollywood is a puzzle that defies logic.
daaaaaaaaaaaaaamnit - I already had these 4 pieces -
IN THIS ORDER - 10 years ago. They just
happened to be televisions with different versions of
me within them singing and fighting live onstage with
one another. How silly of me to think that would be
impressive. LOL. Paint the boxes on the ground and say
"reality show"? Clearly genius.
smartass comments aside - I'm really excited and am in
a great mood,
enjoy starting entries with a little perspective.
So after the last
entry, Laura writes me and says: "Ahem, should
I be offended that you are casting this without
me?" She's a Casting Director. She and her partner of
course cast television and movies for a living. But
see, that was the point. For a LIVING. I can't
pay ANYONE. And she says - "I'll do it pro-bono
to help. I'd like to do Reality Show casting... this
will be cool."
!??! Wow. Uhm,
well shit now this just got a whole lot more legit.
Slight insight to those outside the
beltwayyyyyyyyy.... well outside the smog ring about
Hollywood: actors know Casting Directors in this town.
It's kind just part of the dance. Over time CDs see
the same actors and get a repoire with them. If an
actor is smart, they get to know what each CD likes,
etc... and plays their strengths accordingly. Well,
that's how I'd do it if I was going out on
auditions. Several CDs have lectures you can go to,
ask them questions... again, the smart actors take
advantage of all of this and take any opportunity to
show CDs how serious they are about their craft. So
Laura even lending her name to this will mean a
class of talent that I otherwise would not have gotten
to participate. So besides her instincts and talent
for her own craft (which believe me casting
is), this production has some credibility.
So much so now,
that I wrote to my contact at Atom Films who bought
"Let's Bomb Iran" in 2006. Little unknown fact, he
offered to buy "Hey Aunt Jemima" last year but to this
day I have been unable to get ahold of the right
people at Pinnacle Foods to get the legal OK for the
parody. Either way - he's been interested in
everything I've had to show him So I wrote him about
the 4-Square show and he replied almost immediately to
set up a meeting in a couple weeks so I can pitch
the whole 10-show series.
?!?! And just like
that, we're now laying the groundwork for this to be
picked up on a bigger level. If the show premieres on
Atom Films this summer? It's less of a risk for a
production company out here to want to grab the idea
and produce it themselves. My ideas for the show
(which will now come nowhere NEAR this site for legal
reasons) are pretty "hybrid-ish" and unlike anything
I've seen. This all lends itself to the uniquity that
TV is striving for and the way things are coming
together... it's hardly a leap of faith to see this
progressing increidbly fast...
...and if it
doesn't in the end? Who cares... I was doing it
for The Journey anyway. I just wanted to
entertain you guys! I was sick of the stagnation
of the first 3 months and decided ENOUGH! Hang on,
lemme look at the last 3 months - I think I've just
shed some insight on just how hard I am on myself
sometimes. The last 3 months included:
10 Entries in
January - including a 5 part series of me flying to
DC and going to the Inauguration with incredible
footage of the Inauguration and the wrap-up video
that's just perfect. Annnnnnnnnd a song and as well
as a live performance in Columbus.
10 Entries in
February - including an international interview in
The Philippines as well as the clip from The
Philippines and a 3 part series introducing all 3
Trinitron Shows online for the first time. Oh and
putting every single Journey video on YouTube and
topping it off with the creepy ass pedophile clown
video. Yeah, boring month Adam.
10 Entries in
March - including joining Adam Darling's band for a
night and doing a gig at The Key Club, secret
footage of Marcy Playground singing "Sex
& Candy", The Facebook Journey group -
another song, and cleaning up Journey
And I'm actually
depressed that not enough happened in those 3 months.
Seriously, I actually just said that to my dad today
as I was telling him all the OTHER stuff going on
(wait'll that entry - whew). I guess the truth is that
you all get to watch all the fun stuff - and I'm
depressed because I'm still at this 9-5 trying
desperately to "fund" a way out and I haven't
been able to yet. That's what I see the majority of
the time - but the entries have been really
interesting. My bar has just been sooooooooooo raised
after CBS though - you know? I just demand so much of
myself and when you know how much you can achieve when
given the chance? Every moment of your life is
under-achieving. Harsh, but so true.
Anyway, you won't
believe the next entry. I still can't believe I'm
