I just got home from a pretty great audition I just had. It was for a new show that will air on NetFlix called, Orange Is The New Black. The role I auditioned for was a Latina, pregnant, inmate. A role that I could really sink my teeth into. Anyhow, thanks to my great acting coach I was prepared and confident about what would be thrown my way.
So here goes, I hope all of you bilingual actors are reading this:
(FYI- I use the following words interchangeably- run, prepare, and rehearse.)
1. Always prepare/rehearse both scenes in each language. Sometimes I am sent sides in English...
Sorry for being gone since V-Day, but I was depressed because I wasn't feeling loved. HA! Never that! I've been so busy and it's been a very GOOD busy. Since my last blog I have signed with a legit agent whom I love, booked a National commercial, auditioned during the week like it's my job because IT IS, and I've been enjoying every minute! Actors, you have to enjoy the process or you'll burn yourself out. It's such a great feeling to wake up in the morning and really look forward to your day when you're doing what you love. I feel blessed!
Speaking of blessings, I've been...
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! In honor of the holiday, I'd love to share this story with you.
Have you ever bought flowers from ProFlowers.com? Well a few years ago I did that for my boyfriend at the time. I went to Trinidad for Carnival and for those that don't know the festivities take place during the week of Valentine's Day. Since I wouldn't be around for our "first" (gag) V-Day I figured I'd do something sweet and send him a bouquet of flowers. Fast forward 2 years and I am still reminded of this DAILY. How, you ask? Emails constantly reminding me that Valentine's Day is coming up, and how I should...
I seem to constantly get masseuses who spend a lot of time on my butt and thigh area. I think only one of them had good reason to stay within that area.
This weekend I had acupuncture done by a doctor. I undressed and kept my underwear on because it was done all over (on my face, hands, stomach, knees, and feet). Once he was done with the acupuncture he gave me a massage. I was thinking, "Oh, how nice a little back massage will do me good!" He unhooked my bra (after asking if it was ok) and I felt like I was in grade school all over again. <Sorry mom, I meant high school.> He then...
Ok errbody today's blog starts off with a disclaimer. This is my freedom space for random thoughts, rants, stories, etc. Fuck you SOPA & PIPA! Spanish speakers must've thought the world was mad at soup & pipes, lol.
This will be real talk. If you don't like real log off and go back to watching animated porn, sicko!
**FYI- I wrote this last week. I only planned on writing it to air it out, but what the hell I'll share.**
In the entertainment industry it takes a certain individual to succeed. I honestly think that this business consists of 90% rejection; it comes with the territory....
Well well well, this should have been written and posted on Monday, but alas a head cold kinda kicked my ass. I've been trying to nurse myself back to health since then. Does NyQuil really have to taste so god damn horrible????? I think I'm going to write Procter & Gamble a letter about that (along with the million other letters I always say I'm going to write to companies). I'll add it to my list.
Moving right along…
This past weekend I hung out with a friend of mine. Met him at Lexington Social on Lexington Ave between 104/105. Sam, the bartender, was great; kept...
My best friend, D, just got the new iPhone 4s. And she's still learning how to use it. So we're talking on the phone and she gets a call on the other line. Suddenly, the girl who normally does NOT know how to whisper actually whispers this:
Oh no, he's calling and I don't want to talk to him...
Why are you whispering?
Because this iPhone does everything and I don't know.....he could just pop out of an iCloud.
CUT TO: D'S THOUGHT CLOUD- MAN IN A CLOUD
I know you just got the new iPhone woman so pick up!... I can see you! PICK UP!!
CUT BACK TO: D'S APT. PHONE CONVERSATION
So my new thing for 2012 is to start to use my blog for what it's for- blogging. Thanks to my sister-in-law, Tammy, I just got a 15 min tutorial on how to use this damn teeng. Thanks TK! Or should I say TKM, now?
Onto why Modern Family needs my mom on their writing team:
We were having a lovely phone conversation tonight while she was getting ready to go to work. She works these really crazy hours from 11pm-8 or 9am...very crazy if you ask me.
So she's about to get in her car, and here's what transpired:
Mom: "...venga la dejo mamita que no tengo mi YouTube conmigo." (For those of you non-Spanish...
