I enjoyed auditioning for the onion this morning. Since I was cast in episode 10 of the new show "Onion Sports Dome" I detect an elevated amount of friendliness over there coming my way. I met their needs and now they are even nicer to me...which is......nice? Yes, it's nice. Anyway, I was there to read for an Internet webisode bit, and after my first take the CD gave me an adjustment. I of course, being a consummate professional, took said adjustment. He laughed. It was.....nice.
"Great Phillip! Let me get something else for you to read......I'm not sure what yet."
"OK, I'll just hang out for a bit."
And hang out I did. For about 2 minutes. I passed the time by reading the onion, of course.
He came by with two more sides for me to work on. After about 5 minutes of preparation, I went in again and nailed them both. I guess it just comes down to whether they think I look like the part. We'll see. On a very positive note, the CD said "We'll see you soon!"
So that's pretty great. They'll cast me in one of the three parts I read, or they'll bring me back soon enough. Hopefully both happen.
Additionally, as I waited for the uptown 6 train to take me to my real estate job, I noticed an advertisement for "Call of Duty". For those of you who don't know, that is a video game where you play a soldier and you shoot people and take on various missions. It's awesome. It's a great game. They do however, need to maybe tweak this campaign a bit, with the Tuscon tragedy still in the news.
Right? I'm not alone on this one, yeah?
