first "Greene Without Envy" and now "Net Gains". My
titles rule. LOL.
off, the Pilot is shooting this week now, instead of
next week. Things got delayed because of some
scheduling stuff. So look for that in about a
the main reason for this entry is just the ultimate
slap in the face that I feel I have now seen the
road, and I can't pay the fuggin'
financial side of everything has finally beat our
asses. From the THOUSANDS extra it cost to remove
trees before the driveway went in, to getting $700
water/electric bills for only two months, to having to
buy a new freakin' computer last month, to only
working 25-30 hours a week, to Jess's new paycheck
being RAPED by that FICA mofo (lol that was
funny) - we are now officially, one hundred percent in
debt. So much so, that we truly can't even afford the
initial $175 consultation fee for the publicist.
get into financial shit in The Journey, because anyone
out her goes through it. I'm in a much better
situation than most because of having 2 incomes, and
because Jess and I simply don't spend a lot.
We're able to save a shitload of money, very quickly
as our only vices seem to be the occassional
DVD or videogame. But never before has it
directly effected the next step in the journey so
vividly. Especially considering even if they do accept
me (the publicist) - the money afterwards will just be
outrageous. Either way, I will find a way to get
the money to them this month, and have an answer by
the end of the year. Have to. There is just such an
amazing possibility to end 2003 on such a high note,
that I can't ignore it. How nice would it be to
have the year-end video be a party! A happy situation!
now that I think of it, they've all sucked. LOL.
Even 2001, only a month removed from The Comedy Store,
I predicted that I wouldn't be talking to
Charlotte the same time next year. I knew even
then by the way she was acting that it was over.
That's incredible. If this publicist thing happens it
will mark the most amazingly productive year I've ever
had. From T2, completely by myself, to the house, to
the job, just wow.
course, I could lose yet another $175, they don't
accept me at all and I'm just further in debt. LOL.
That's life baby.
that explains part one of the "Net Gains" title. Which
is of course, just a parody of my first feature film:
Net Games, and thus part two of the
I can say, is I pray I laugh heartily
at this entry in a few years. I laughed
even as I edited this, zooming in on
me talking in the background of a B-Movie.
You can't help but just snicker at it. Or
the fact that I spent 3 hours,
getting around the copy prohibit on the
DVD, editing all 3 scenes together, and
in on my parts. It actually does kinda
suck that I'm not soooooo into the acting
scene, because THIS is the stuff that
is perfect for "The Journey". Entries like
this. If I wanted to, I could
FILLLLL this thing with these clips. It's
nothing more than signing with a "cattle
agency" that just sends you out for
extra work. Absolutely anyone can do
of course that's not me, and entries like this will be
few and far between. But for now - this is pretty
funny. Enjoy the video. Oh if you're wondering what us
"background" folk are talking about during the
scenes...it's always something to try to fuck with the
other guy. Like "I saw up her robe dude, shaved clean
man" "How 'bout I get on my knees copper, would taht
get me out of the ticket?" Heh. And if you see the
flick at Blockbuster anytime soon, it's worth a rent.
Of course if you need to be an Adam Kontras completist
(which you all just HAVE to be) - you can buy it
at Amazon.com. Heh. Alright, one more pic and the era
of Net Games is over:
other news of course...Jess is finally back this
coming Saturday. Although I just remembered that
she's only back for a little bit and then she's gone
again for 2 more weeks. So sick of this. Especially
since the excitement of a raise has been dashed
because the increase in taxes almost nixed the
difference. (Sigh). Oh well, only a few more
and uhm - I have a show Wednesday. Heh. It's not
that I've forgotten about it, but now that the
Publicist idea has come to fruition, I realize
these shows are just for fun. I assume this will
be the last one of the year, and then a
"campaign" will be put together with the
publicist in February-March with about 8-10 shows. At
which point I will be telling everyone in the
world. It should be a good show, and I've done quite
an edit to Part 2 that will give people something to
look forward to. Took at the one joke that made me
grimace onstage because just NOBODY got it. Heh. Good
edit though...funnier now. Here's a flyer if anyone
would like to email some friends:
that's basically it. Here's hopin' I fall into a
couple hundred dollars this week and can get the
meeting with the publicist. It's too bad I can't
just kill a bunch of bad guys like I was in
Legend of Zelda or something. Although now that
I think of it I guess I could - LOL. In
fact, I bet just one murder of a bad guy could
cover every debt and a good part of our mortgage!
