"taken" at the Parkway Cinema

Pretty weak script and not a very plausable story line but Liam Nesson is better with a weak script then most actors are with a good script-and it cost $2 the parkway cinema is one of the things I love about Sarasota. next I'll try and see the new Michael Caine film.

Hello-are you struggling?

Hi to whoever is listening. I am new to this website and hope to hear from other artists. We are all struggling right now [ or most of us, anyway] and perhaps like me could use some support.
My sales are way--------------------way down this year. Sometimes it is hard to keep up the urge to create [not that sales spur creating, but that selling cleans out the backlog of work for new things].

Morning Pages vs Blogging

Many times in Artist's Way classes we have discussed the differences between doing Morning Pages on the computer and writing them out in long hand. I have always advocated going long hand, personally there seems to be a wonderful flow that to occurs through the pen and onto the paper. Working on the computer is still very awkward, so I do not not think blogging will ever replace my morning pages. Not to mention having my Morning Pages accessible and readable to anyone. Jeez, is that scary. I… Continue

Control, Chaos & Crazymakers

And not necessarily in that order!

Crazymakers appear to be a fact of life. They are the people and/or the situations that march into your life and demand your attention. Crazymaker’s problems always come first, chaos swirls around them, and although they may offer to help you out, every now and again, it is always on their terms, or there are serious strings attached. They rarely take responsibility for any of their own actions, blaming others regularly for what ever problems exist.… Continue

Living the life

Add a Blog!

I discovered this site looking for an old friend, and maybe someone will read this. I live in a Derbyshire village in U.K, and have come to own an old 17c. barn which belonged to the village butcher. This barn included a slaughter house, and shop, all very 1950s, and the barn is in terrible shape. I spent the afternoon going through a mass of Bills, letters and other correspondence, all relating to Bert the Butcher, and my wife found photographs

of Bert, mostly during… Continue

Early last week an indie film produced out of NYC was in Sarasota shooting some scenes for the movie The Jonestown Defense and at one point we were improv-ing while circling over Wauchula in a small aircraft. You just never know how your experiences can prepare you for the unusual. This coming weekend, one of my favorite people, Lori Wyman, will be in town for a booksigning Friday night and a two-day workshop on Auditioning for TV&Film Saturday and Sunday. I look forward to seeing a lot of… Continue

Actors sometimes pigeonhole themselves and limit their ability to grow and prosper. Fortunately, my new found "career" has a lot of variety. I act in movies and on the stage. Even an occasional mystery dinner theater is scheduled. And, of course, I do radio and TV commercials whenever I can do them. Then, there are voiceovers of various stripes.

The big event after Memorial Day weekend is the booksigning at Sarasota News & Books on the 29th by multi-award winning Casting Director, Lori… Continue
