Busy, busy, busy. The acting thing is slowly but surely gaining momentum. I just booked a soap commercial shooting tomorrow. On Saturday, the theater company I'm now in held a backer's audition for Midsummer Night's Dream (an installment of our ongoing "Shakespeare for Kids" series), and on Friday, I auditioned for this independent gay romantic comedy that sounds AMAZING.

What else… I'm having another New Year's party. Just sent out the Evites today.

I spent Friday evening with Martin, Derek and Gary at Trailer Park in Chelsea. It's been our end-of-the-week Happy Hour locale of choice as of late, probably because the bartender always takes particularly good care of us (read: free frozen strawberry margaritas).

I have THREE Christmas parties in the coming week—let the onslaught of egg nog and yuletide merriment commence!

I hosted Thanksgiving this year, with Alyson, Matt and baby Noah in attendance. Thanks to the good folks at FreshDirect, the side dishes and dessert were superb!

Today, I shot a bit part in an English-language Bollywood film called Hope and a Little Sugar, starring Anupam Kher, who played the father in Bend It Like Beckham. If they keep the shot, I'm the "annoyed guy" at Ground Zero (which was actually a tiny parking lot in Queens). I enjoyed the work, and the crew was really great, but I couldn't wait to get out of there.

See, the extras were so freakin' annoying! There were the all-out freaks. (Jay and Silent Bob are real and doing extra work in New York!) There were also the mind-numbingly stupid, sharing stories of how they were scammed by agencies like "Wilhelmina." I say, if you're gonna fall for an I'll-make-you-a-star-if-you-pay-me-a-fee scam, you deserve to be taken. If people did their homework, they would easily find out that Wilhelmina Scouting Network and Wilhelmina (the highly regarded modeling agency) are two entirely different businesses. And then there were the where's-Darwinism-when-you-need-it weirdos.

For example, there was this Shawn Wayans lookalike who just WOULD NOT shut up… Seriously, there was not a moment when he wasn't yammering away. We had to do several more takes than necessary, just because he was hamming it up or blabbering on about something. Oh, and there was the roly-poly we dubbed "Diva," because she acted as if she were the star of the film. Her demands for food ("I better be gettin' some food, 'cause I HUNGRY!") and then for a chair (while the crew and most of the cast stood, waiting for a shot to get set up) were understandably ignored. Had she any idea where background actors stood in the hierarchy of filmmaking? It's not very high.

Ooh, but to make up for all that was the crew. Yes, they were super nice. And two of them were sooo adorably hot. We're talking Jared-Leto-pretty. I swear they could pass for his brothers! This PA, Mateo (yes, that was his real name), and the gaffer (I think his name was Jack) were just so amazing to look at. So cute. Sigh.

I just got tickets to Wicked the Musical for October 12th, thanks to eBay! It's sold out for several months to come, so I'm really excited to get these orchestra seats and at a great price! I've only heard amazing things about it, and I'm glad to see it before Idina Menzel leaves.

Three weeks without one cigarette!

I spent the past two nights on the set my first movie! The movie's called Flannel Pajamas, a romantic comedy starring Justin Kirk. He played Prior Walter in Angels in America and was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Emmy for his work. It also stars Stephanie March ("Law and Order: SVU"), Jamie Harrold (Water Board guy in Erin Brockovich, the stuttering guy in To Wong Foo…), and Julianne Nicholson (Little Black Book). It was great being on the set, and everyone was super nice.

I started another acting class last night, Meisner Technique, at NYU. Next week I start yet another one, bringing the total to four. I hate getting home so late, but it's so worth it.

Friday, September 24, 2004

Last night, I hung out with Martin and my old friend, Marc, at XES Lounge in Chelsea. It's a relatively new bar that opened up back in June. I had a great time at their opening weekend After-Pride Party, chatting with friends and partaking of the free hot dogs.

After XES and a quick slice of pizza, Martin and I headed down to Bar 4 in Park Slope to celebrate Heather's new job at McGraw-Hill! Her last day as a kindergarten teacher is October 8.

Smoke-free for 9 days now.

Last night, I started my second acting class at NYU, "Acting for Film and TV" with casting director, Sue Crystal. She seems very personable, and is definitely intelligent and funny, so I look forward to working with her. The class is a little large for my taste (at 15), but regardless, I'm really psyched because since I've been acting again, I've had limited on-camera experience; everything has been theater-based.

I didn't go to my Scene Study class yesterday morning. My scene partner, Ryan, wasn't going to be there, and I hadn't prepared my Uta Hagen Exercise ("Destination") thoroughly enough, so I spent my Day-Off-for-Acting reading through various technique and audition books at Barnes & Noble. I picked up, among other things, Rob Decina's The Art of Auditioning yesterday. I recognized his name, because he teaches at TVI, and I remembered seeing an email announcing his book's release. It's a great read: extremely honest and insightful, with a direct approach on how best to try and land TV jobs. I'm already halfway through it.

I submitted for another student movie today and also sent my Thank You card (finally) to Chris Macke, the headshot photographer I used last month.

Anniversaries and regret

Oy, drank too much at Excelsior's Fifth Anniversary party last night. I remember yelling at some woman who was shaped like a tomato and who spoke like Karen from "Will & Grace", for constantly elbowing my friend, Brian, in the back while standing at the bar (I hate that!). I vaguely remember meeting some friendly chap from Scotland as well. It's all a haze now…

Yoga

Just did yoga with Henry at NYSC. I loved it. I really need to do more of it. I always feel like I'm floating on a cloud after a good yoga class.

Commonwealth

Hung out at Commonwealth (former Carry Nation bartender, Ray's new bar, which he owns) on 5th Avenue and 12th tonight, with David, Henry, Ken & Derek and Paul the Ex, who gladly provided the non-juicy details of his tryst with Mike last Thursday, despite my advice. :-) (I mean who doesn't have lube, especially when you "host guests" as often as he does?)

Oh, I also quit smoking today! Let's see how it goes…

Hot Scene Partners and Commercials

My new scene partner from TVI, Ryan, drove up all the way from Philly tonight so we could rehearse for a few hours. It was a lot of fun: we worked through the script a bunch of times, but also talked a lot about starting out in the business. He's in the same boat as I was back in April, so there was a lot of info I wanted to give him. He also came out to me which was unexpected! He's one of those guys where you couldn't really tell if he were gay or not. You would look at him and think, "Hmmm. Probably... oh wait. No, he's not."

I HAD TO TURN DOWN MY FIRST COMMERCIAL TONIGHT. *sigh* Well, Ryan was right there, when at 9 PM, a background/extras casting director calls me for a New York State Lottery commercial that was filming all day tomorrow and Wednesday from 6 AM on. I had to say no, because I wasn't sure if I could get a car for such a long stretch AND at such short notice, and because that would mean Ryan's two-hour-plus drive would have been in vain. You see, we have to perform our scene on Wednesday. Grrr… I can see that casting director right now, just ripping through my headshot as I said, "No, sorry. I can't be available…" I really hope that isn't the case.

My first New York audition

Today I had my first audition! It was for a short film called Not a F***ing Blonde, written by Esther Pan and to be directed by Caroline Laskow. It centers around a young Asian-American couple as they reveal the dynamics of their prior relationships with white people. I know I could have read better, but one is not supposed to dwell on these things. You should go in with a positive energy but with the realistic viewpoint, "I'm most likely not going to get this job," simply because the odds ARE against you. All you do is do your best and be yourself during the audition, and try not to let nerves get the best of you. If you get a callback, all the better!

The audition was a cold reading with Esther and another auditioner, in front of a camera and a very bright light. And it was in one of those high-rises in Chinatown. I've always wondered what they looked like on the inside. Anyway, both the director and the writer came across as extremely intelligent and focused women; it would be great to work with them some time in the future.

Half of '04

Damn, the 11th already?! I can't believe 2004's pretty much half over now.

First off, shameless plug: I have two invitations to join Gmail up for bid on eBay. Gmail is Google's much-hyped foray into web-based email. What makes it so great: aside from being free, you get ONE GIGABYTE (1,000 MB) of space! Yes, that's a LOT; it means you never have to delete any of your email again. Also, once you archive your mail, you can use Google's excellent search technology to find that email from that guy from like a year ago. The account is FREE; it's just the invite to join that's hard to come by. Gmail is still in "beta," meaning it's not ready for primetime, and only a select few get to test-drive it. If you're interested, check out the auctions.

Well, it's Gay Pride Month, and tomorrow's Brooklyn Pride. Yawn. But it's a great excuse to barbecue and drink lots with friends in the 'hood, which is exactly what I'll be doing.


Kim with Stephanie Romanov from 'Angel'
Kim with Iyari Limon from 'Buffy'

So David and I just spent five days in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. We went with Kim and John to attend a fan-run Buffy/Angel convention called Moonlight Rising at the gorgeous Split Rock Resort. We stayed in a deee-luxe two-bedroom duplex in the woods with a deck, a sauna, a whirlpool tub, and deer in the backyard. The guests at the con included James Marsters ("Spike"), Adam Busch ("Warren"), Danny Strong ("Jonathan"), Tom Lenk ("Andrew") and the simply stunning Stephanie Romanov ("Lilah"). I got to chat with all of them, which is always fun. Highlights: THE COMMON ROTATION CONCERT, buying a drink for Danny; Adam's beeline to our little huddle at the start of the VIP cocktail party; chatting with James Leary ("Clem"); surprise hugs from Adam and Eric; hanging out at the Pit Bar with Kim, John and David.

New at NYU

So last night was my first acting class at NYU, and we had a substitute! But our sub was quite good. Our actual teacher is a working actor and doing a play out of the city. He'll be back in two weeks. The class itself is an interesting mix of people -- a couple of directors, a few people in their twenties, a few more in their thirties. Some of the people are merely looking for a distraction from their humdrum office jobs. I guess I fall somewhere in that category, although I do have professional aspirations.

Tonight was my first class at TVI. It's a basic commercial technique class, taught by Judy Bowman, a casting director. We just had a question-and-answer session tonight, but I'm really psyched because of Judy's extensive knowledge of the Business. Note to self: I REALLY need to get my headshot done soon.

Eric at the Bitter End

I took Derek to see Eric Kufs (of Common Rotation) do a solo show at the Bitter End tonight. I had a great time! Here are some pictures.

iPods & Classes

Got a brand-spankin'-new iPod mini from Apple today, to replace my staticky old one. Damn my early adopting! Let's hope this one works out.

On the acting front, I just got back from my tour of TVI Actors Studio up on 46th. I was very impressed with the facilities and with the organization itself. TVI offers a great range of services to actors and actors-in-training. I'm signing up tomorrow!

Hobnobbing with the Buffy Cast for John Kerry



I just got back from a wonderful long weekend in L.A. I already miss it, and driving through the ghetto (from JFK Airport) and the muggy, overcast weather that greeted me made me miss California that much more.

My primary reason for the visit was a John Kerry fundraiser. Common Rotation performed, and the event was hosted by actors Danny Strong ("Jonathan" on Buffy) and Michael Bacall. Over $9,000 was raised!

Pictures from the trip can be found on my Flickr page.

Voiceover Work

Last night, I took part in a seminar on voiceover work. I, along with about 15 others, listened as Charles enthusiastically preached the Gospel of Voiceover for over three hours. We all got behind the mic two to three times for a cold read of commercial copy, and within minutes, Charles was able to make almost all of us sound like seasoned pros. And as I've guessed for quite some time, and as Charles picked up on immediately, my speaking voice (when miked up) is probably best suited for kids commercials and animated pieces. The seminar was fun and enlightening, and voiceover is something I may pursue further.

So, I just got a haircut in anticipation of my weekend jaunt to LA. (Wait... "jaunt"? Does anyone else use that word?) Anyway, Kim is coming over tomorrow night to crash at our place, because our flight from JFK is at 7 AM (ugh!)... I am so not pretty before noon, let alone at 5 AM, when our cab is coming to pick us up. I just got word from my Uncle Will that he and his family (and some of my cousins) are available to take us all out on Saturday for a day-long thing, probably Six Flags. That should be a lot of fun... I'm a rollercoaster junkie!

In other news, my glorious iPod mini fell victim to the unbelievably-piercing-static problem that's been reported in the last month. But it's under warranty, and I'm really impressed with their customer service so far. I set up a service request online Monday morning, and today I received a foam-insulated box, that included pre-cut pieces of packing tape (!), with pre-labeled, pre-paid shipping back to the mothership (i.e. Apple HQ). Pretty fancy.

This piece of news caught my eye. This is excerpted (without permission) from a brilliant article by Joyce Millman of the Boston Herald. I couldn't have put it better myself.

AN ERA OF ANOTHER SORT comes to an end on May 19 when the WB pulls the plug on Angel (Wednesdays at 9 p.m.) after five seasons. Unless Joss Whedon has a TV movie or a feature film left in these characters, the official Buffy the Vampire Slayer saga is over (though devotees will probably keep it alive for years on the Internet with unofficial fan fiction).

Angel was the unlikeliest of Buffy spinoffs. How do you build a show around a taciturn, formerly evil hunk who canít have sex because of an age-old Gypsy curse? But Whedon and Angel co-creator/executive producer David Greenwalt came up with a perfect hook: make Angel (David Boreanaz) a Dark Avenger protecting innocents from demonic mayhem, drench the story lines in themes of redemption and self-reinvention, and set it all in Los Angeles, the self-reinvention capital of the world. Like Buffy, Angel was a constantly evolving and adventurous series that tried on genres with dazzling bravado. It started as a pulpy comic-book noir, delved deep into sci-fi and fantasy, and this season became a vampire roadshow of Grumpy Old Men with the addition of Buffy refugee James Marsters as Angelís eternal rival, the pesky Spike. And it spun some of the most deliciously creepy scenarios this side of Stephen King ... be sure to catch the rerun of this seasonís "Smile Time" episode, in which a demonic spell turns Angel into "a wee little puppet man," to paraphrase a gleeful Spike, and thatís "puppet" as in "Muppet."

The show was blessed with versatile, gifted actors who made you suspend disbelief with every twist and turn of personality and plot the Angel writers threw at them. At the height of Buffy and Angel glory, the story goes, Whedon would have his two casts over to his house for regular Shakespeare readings, and what I would have given to witness some of those. Angel was even more shamefully neglected than Buffy when it came to awards and industry recognition. So let me just say this: there was no more moving hour of drama on TV this season than the episode "A Hole in the World," where emotionally wrecked demon hunter Wesley (Alexis Denisof) sat vigil as the love of his life, sweet science genius Fred (the wide-eyed, luminous Amy Acker), died an agonizing death by demonic possession. Yeah, I know ... you had to be there. And for the past five years, Iím glad I was.

Back into Acting?

I realized about a month ago that I want to get back into acting. (I did a lot of community theater until I was about 15.)

Well, I'm really excited, because I've just signed up for my first batch of classes!

From May through July, I'll be in Acting 101 at NYU. I'm really looking forward to this! Can anybody recommend a good headshot photographer? :-)

Sunday, April 25, 2004

Stayed in all weekend, which was fine with me. I've been so tired all week, because getting back to working out after a week and a half off is really draining. We also had to do some major cleaning of the apartment. Yesterday, this couple who are doing research for NBC Primetime came over and interviewed us. We got a sweet cash honorarium. It was cool, and they were really nice. They LOVED the Buffy room! They even took pictures. (To show NBC??) :-)

Back to L.A.!

So I'm all set to go back to California... Hollywood, here I come! Danny Strong (formerly Jonathan on "Buffy", now Doyle on "Gilmore Girls") is hosting a John Kerry fundraiser (featuring the musical stylings of alterna-folk greats, Common Rotation). I'm taking Kim and David with me and staying in Hollywood. Seeing that neither of them have been out there, it should be an unforgettable trip.

R.I.P. Carmen Paris

I got home Saturday morning. As expected my grandmother past away. The viewing was Thursday, and the funeral was Friday. Although it was incredibly sad, the whole family got a chance to reconnect, which is what Grandma would've wanted. It was a wonderful experience seeing my cousins again, especially Cindy, Joy, Crystal, Jacqui, Danielle, Suzette… There are too many to mention—almost 30 in fact!

Anyway, I really loved being in California after so long. I stayed in Torrance mostly, with brief stays in Montebello and La Verne. I'm planning on going much more frequently. I'd love to be "bicoastal" one of these days.

Spent Saturday night with my parents (they're going back to the Philippines today!) and have been catching up with David and sleep these past two days.

Friday, April 09, 2004

I'm off to L.A. for a week. However, it's not for fun and sunshine. My father's entire family… he's got nine brothers and sisters… lives in southern California. My grandmother is very ill, and the doctors don't give her much more time to live. Since my parents are moving to the Philippines in a couple of months, this may be the last time he sees her. Ever.

Quite sad, but bittersweet as well. I haven't kept in touch with any of my cousins, so this whole last-minute-trip thing has brought some of us back together. I'm personally looking forward to seeing my cousin, Cindy, and her four year old. I haven't even met her yet, since my last time in L.A. was seven years ago.

Unfortunately, I'm gonna miss Saturday's Common Rotation concert. But they'll be in Hollywood on Wednesday night, so hopefully I can catch them there. Hey, that would mean I made their first AND last shows of this tour. Cool.

FOX CANCELLED WONDERFALLS!

… after just four freakin' episodes. Those bastards! They've even erased all records of the show from their website already. This quirky one-hour comedy was not only one of the most critically lauded show of the year, but the first show I've been interested in in a long time. Caroline Dhavernas… we hardly knew you. Grr arrgh.

Monday, February 23, 2004

A none-too-eventful weekend. Did my taxes though, using TurboTax online again. Getting a nice, yummy chunk back.

ACK! I just found this URL of an interview I did back in 2000. Talk about a blast from the past! Time sure does fly when you're having fun. Is this still who I am? I guess so, for the most part.

Read the interview

Another Valentine's Day. I'm pasting in this article, so it can be read, enjoyed, pondered and eventually remembered on this joyous "holiday" and for many Valentine's Days to come.

Valentine's Day, that great state holiday
By Bill Maher
NEW RULE: You can't claim you're the party of smaller government, and then clamor to make laws about love. If there's one area I don't want the US government to add to its list of screw-ups, it's love.

On the occasion of this Valentine's Day, let's stop and ask ourselves: What business is it of the state how consenting adults choose to pair off, share expenses, and eventually stop having sex with each other?

And why does the Bush administration want a constitutional amendment about weddings? Hey, birthdays are important, too -- why not include them in the great document? Let's make a law that gay people can have birthdays, but straight people get more cake -- you know, to send the right message to kids.

Republicans are always saying we should privatize things, like schools, prison, Social Security -- OK, so how about we privatize privacy? If the government forbids gay men from tying the knot, what's their alternative? They can't all marry Liza Minnelli.

Republicans used to be the party that opposed social engineering, but now they push programs to outlaw marriage for some people, and encourage it for others. If you're straight, there's a billion-five in the budget to encourage and promote marriage -- including seed money to pay an old Jewish woman to call up people at random and say "So why aren't you married, Mr. Big Shot?"

But when it comes to homosexuals, Republicans sing "I Love You Just the Way You Oughta Be." They oppose gay marriage because it threatens or mocks -- or does something -- to the "sanctity of marriage," as if anything you can do drunk out of your mind in front of an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas could be considered sacred. Half the people who pledge eternal love are doing it because one of them is either knocked-up, rich or desperate, but in George Bush's mind, marriage is only a beautiful lifetime bond of love and sharing -- kind of like what his Dad has with the Saudis.

But at least the right wing aren't hypocrites on this issue -- they really believe that homosexuality, because it says so in the Bible, is an "abomination" and a "dysfunction" that's "curable": they believe that if a gay man just devotes his life to Jesus, he'll stop being gay -- because the theory worked out so well with the Catholic priests.

But the greater shame in this story goes to the Democrats, because they don't believe homosexuality is an "abomination," and therefore their refusal to endorse gay marriage is a hypocrisy. The right are true believers, but the Democrats are merely pretending that they believe gays are not entitled to the same state-sanctioned misery as the rest of us. The Democrats' position doesn't come from the Bible, it's ripped right from the latest poll, which says that most Americans are against gay marriage.

Well, you know what: Sometimes "most Americans" are wrong. Where's the Democrat who will stand up and go beyond the half measures of "civil union" and "hate the sin, love the sinner," and say loud and clear: `There IS no sin, and homosexuality is NOT an abomination' -- although that Boy George musical Rosie O'Donnell put on comes close. The only thing abominable about being gay is the amount of time you have to put in at the gym.

But that aside, the law in this country should reflect that some people are just born 100 percent outrageously, fabulously, undeniably Fire Island gay, and that they don't need re-programming. They need a man with a slow hand.

Happy Valentine's Day everybody!

First, off a big Thank You to E.S. in Texas for reminding me that I have this website thing here, and that it needs updating every once in a while. I do have a bunch of journal entries written down -- in my Palm, on cocktail napkins, on various bathroom walls in New York City -- and I'll post them up shortly.

So the Grammys kinda took me by surprise. I was particularly surprised with wins by both Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. Ask me five years ago if I thought they'd ever win Grammys, and I'd have laughed at you, called you an idiot, and perhaps spat on you... and then quickly would have realized that I was overreacting, and would have apologized to you profusely. Outkast rocked, but man, when they accepted for Album of the Year, there were about 2,000 people on stage with them -- how many producers did that record have?!

In other music news, this Wednesday is the last of three Common Rotation shows at the Knitting Factory's Old Office Lounge. If you're free, please drop by... and say hi! I'll be there with my friends, Samantha (hopefully) and Kim.

In other news, Friday was my cat Sam's umpteenth visit to the vet. Back in December, Sam was diagnosed with hepatic lipidosis, a.k.a. "fatty liver" disease. It happens when large cats drop lots of weight very quickly. It's potentially fatal and required constant nurse care by both David and me. After his week-long stay at the hospital and $1,500 later (UGH!), he had to be hand-fed SIX times a day and given various pills all the time. Fast forward -- it's two months later, and he's back to normal physically, but I think he's now mentally all kinds of freaked. He's started scratching himself till he bleeds and pulling the fur off his tail. I personally think ALL of this stems from the stress of moving from the apartment he's known all his life to this new, bigger place -- where two cats already live (David's) and where Sabrina (his former surrogate mom) has turned on him. I just hope that he can get back to normal.

So yeah, the move. I'm still in Park Slope. I'm coincidentally back on the same street where I lived when I first moved to Brooklyn, back in '97. I've moved in with David! I began moving stuff in mid-Novemberish, although I still had my apartment through December. It's really great, but now I have FOUR cats, all trying to co-exist, and the fur is flyin'. Unfortunately, it's MY two cats that wanna be startin' somethin'. Yes, I still have stuff in boxes. No, life's not all back to normal just yet, but it's getting there.

Next up, the trials and tribulations of my addiction to drag queen karaoke. Coming soon.

Noah's growing up so fast!
