Filmed "Ritchie's Crew" - March 11, 2006
I filmed my scene for "Ritchie's Crew" today. It was a lot of fun, and the cast and crew were great to work with. We filmed in an attic/loft above a pawn shop in Denton, and it was covered in dust. Soon after leaving the shoot, the dust caught up with me, and my voice was shot. I spent the rest of the evening sounding like Anne Ramsey. "Ooowwwen!" I went straight from the shoot to another audition, which was cool. Maybe the raspy voice will help, though, since the role I was reading for was a smoker. Nice. Anyway, I did get to die in the film, but alas, it wasn't on screen. Bummer.

Launched New Web Site - February 28, 2006
The new web site is launched. Yeah, um, that's about all I have to say about that. It is a great improvement over the last one, so I'm pleased that it is now available.
Learned To Juggle - January 21, 2006
I just learned to juggle! I was visiting a friend at Slappy's Puppet Playhouse
, inside the Galleria Mall, and picked up some juggling balls to give it a shot. Four hours later, I had taught myself to juggle. This is something I've always wanted to learn, ever since I was a little boy. And much to the delight of many a mall visitor, I had been practicing right in the front window, for all to see. More than once, an audience gathered outside to point and laugh at me. My back and legs still hurt from bending over to pick up my balls when they dropped. About a year and a half ago, my daughter and I learned how to twist balloon animals. And, next I plan to learn to ride the unicycle. Hmmm... I think I may have found my calling!
