yesterday afternoon as I'm cleanin' up the
house Ryan Seacrest's "On The Air" came
on. Basically a TRL in LA with the open
window in back and all, but on his show
prominent. When I saw it I
thought: "Wow, Highland Ave...." Sat
there for a few more seconds and thought
"jesus man, that's like 10 minutes from
me." You could see people walking on the
street, and really no one was paying
attention...unlike TRL where it's so
popular that there's thousands of people
causing a ruckus. It occured to me that I
could probably hold up a sign with
4tvs.com on it, and get some hits. Get
I continued to
watch the hourlong program (nationwide, click
for your time and channel) and it just amazed me how
many times a certain spot was shot over and over and
over. I had to at least try. The spot was pretty
far away, so my sign would have to be massive, but it
was just too obvious not to try. So today I made
the sign (took friggin' 3 1/2 hours) and am planning
to hit up the show on Thursday as Jess has the day off
and she'll be able to watch TV and tell me over the
cell where to move and what not. Ryan also goes
downstairs to the courtyard at Hollywood &
Highland in both shows I've seen, so I'd need to know
that so I can run around for that hour for the
I plan to gain by this? You know, it's just a
sincere, symbolic gesture of standing on a soapbox and
screaming: LOOOK AT ME. You know?
After 4 years that's what I want to do - make a big
ass sign, stand in the middle of Hollywood and go
HERE I AM!!!! AHHHHH. There is more to this
made this sign big enough, and you actually can read
4tvs.com - well it all goes into phase 2. That phase
starting with me spending every 5-6 PM Monday through
Friday moment of my life that I'm not working, holding
that sign. The other part of that phase will be all of
you supporters emailing the show asking: "Who
the hell is that guy holding a sign over Ryan's
shoulder?". That will only work if you can actually
READ the sign, and I get in a bunch of shots.
I figure if I do that 2-3 times a week
(trust me if I could afford doing it everyday I
would) and they get enough emails...maybe - just maybe
It then occured to
me that The Trinitrons even in the state it's in now -
could do a 30 second bit of just music. I could edit
that really quickly. And if by any means they actually
called me up into the studio (which they do quite
often on TRL in New York) I could get the audience
behind me enough to allow me to set-up something the
following week. It's a longshot, it's a crapshoot and
it's exactly what I should be doing. It does also hint
of a tiny bit of desperation but you know what?
WHO GIVES A FUCK. Heh. Not to be so
crass but you can call me anything you want right now.
I'm so self-assured after putting together
Adamazon.com that I have what it takes, I don't want
to waste a minute. If that means me making a temporary
stay of residence (definition of sojourn) outside
those studios with a BIGASS sign...so be it.
Because the ends justify ANY means. When they
click on 4tvs.com - it's unique and it's different.
I'm not just an actor or singer, I'm doing something
no one has ever seen before and using guerilla tactics
to let the world know that is certainly not beyond me.
Publicity. That's what the backers said and with or
without Garis - I'm getting it.
Here's hopin this
sign is big enough to read and some stupid ass
security guard isn't constantly following my ass
around. I mean it's a BIIIIIIIIG window - but one spot
is just PERFECT. And hey, at least all the cars going
by will read it. Heh. It can't hurt - I know that
In other news,
I got my first order on Adamazon.com!
Wahoo! Of course he did it the minute I lowered
all the prices (heh) but that's fine with me, it's not
about money really - just spreadin' the word. But to
let you know, all CDs are now $8.88 and all DVDs are
$14.88. That's as cheap as I can possibly go and
will probably stay at that price forever. Check out
the "Buy Together" buttons on the pages too -
sometimes you can save a couple bucks on top of that
price when you buy another disc.
Alright! Watch the
show on Thursday and no matter what I'll be taping it
if you miss it. Wish me luck.
