This week has been a busy one. Not really for acting, but mostly for real estate. Since things are slow at the moment, I decided to plug away at real estate this week and try to close some clients. So far no applications or lease signings, but I have been meeting up with 3 people a day or so....which is a good amount for January. Real Estate is similar to acting in the sense that one morning you wake up and have no prospects, then by lunch time things can be buzzing.
This is a good thing because it helps me stay positive but that false sense of hope can serve as a drawback. I try to ignore the latter and embrace the former. So, I've been previewing apartments like a crazy banshee and have found some great deals. I went to preview what was listed as a one bed for $2600 in a doorman building in Midtown East, and lo and behold, it was actually a 2 bedroom. No brokers fee. So I am marketing the Hades out of that place. So far, nothing to show for it....but I do plan on showing it at least 3 more times today.
This morning I traveled to Alphabet City to meet with a director/producer of a new show that is about people who went through a dramatic change. I hope that my weight loss of 55+lbs is dramatic enough for these guys because people on the show receive a $5,000.00 wardrobe! That would be really really great. I recycled the same writeup that I sent to that Gold's Gym casting notice. I hope I get this, because I am trying to turn that specific negative into a positive.
Tomorrow Gut Punch is filming the aforementioned Sherri-sack monologue fauxmercial. I am also considering changing "sherry" to "loko" and "sherrysack" to "four loko". It would be a lot more topical and with that insane caffeinated malt liquor receiving press lately, it could perhaps go viral.
I originally mentioned this fauxmercial idea here.
