The price of fame

Dear friends - it has been too long! Life has gotten a bit more complicated now that I'm famous. What's that? You weren't aware of my amazing feature film? It was pretty much a blockbuster...everyone's talking about it ..critical acclaim people. I've got agents and managers hounding me for parts now - I may need to stop this blog and start a new more PR style website since my fans will want new material and often.

If you are the one or two people on this planet that have not seen the CNN Africa video that i was featured in - I have pasted the link here for you. If you just want to cut over (that's director language for "skip to") to my scene, scroll to minute 5:57 and then be ready. It hits you pretty quickly. It's sort of a special surprise at the end.

I am currently taking bookings for other major background acting parts - your people can have lunch with my people and discuss.

You know, this is not the first time I have become famous in a foreign country - Let us NOT forget when i was featured front and center in a Guatemala Tennis magazine when I was living there 6 years ago. I actually had no idea it I was famous until I went to the gym one day and one of the trainers asked me if I had seen my page in the magazine...huge deal. HUGE. Very big deal. It took a while for life to get back to normal after this baby was published :

In other news, yesterday was 4th of July and we celebrated appropriately. My little munchkin friend Candice from South Africa just arrived here on the 3rd and we met up with her and her boyfriend, Phil, or PHULL as she says in her adorable SA accent. There was a big bbq happening to welcome Phull and this other guy Keith back from Afghanistan. Good old time. Serg and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

And then later Sergio and I met up with my mom to go see some fireworks from the park around the Iwo Jima memorial. It's one of the best places to view the fireworks - we've gone there in previous years so it's now a 2nd annual...even though we skipped 2 years while we were in Kenya. So more like 2nd non-consecutive annual fireworks viewing thingy dingy.
Before the sun set - clear view of Wash monument and  Lincoln memorial
After the sunset  - Good times with fireworks. Although it was hotter than hell.  Like super hot, I'm not even sure I had that much fun. Lets just be honest here. It was DAMN  hot, we camped in that spot for 3 hours and then saw 15 min of fireworks. Okay now i'll end it with a positive and just say...i really liked the cube looking ones - those were very geometric and visually appealing. I also like the streamers that sort of stream down for a lasting effect. Those are good. And that's all i have to say about it. It took us 1.5 hours to get 2 miles home when the show was over. Damnit! I didn't want to finish on a negative!

Enjoy the day people
