Good news and bad news. I checked the tapes and it’s not pretty. Just about the whole first scene is destroyed on the tape. I do think I can salvage a little of it at the end but for the most part that section of the tape is ruined.

Good news is everything else looked to be ok so I’ll try downloading it on the computer tonight and to get things ready for next week! Oh boy am I excited! C-ya tomorrow!

After a lot of searching I finally found a camcorder yesterday! I'll try hooking it up today and seeing if I can salvage that tape!!

If so, I'll make next week an "Oscar and Felix" week for sure. With nothing but pictures and video posts all week long!

Cross your fingers folks.... here goes....

Hold on folks! I may be buying a new camcorder this week and if so that means I can still salvage the tape of my performance. (I needed a new video camera anyway)

This also means I'll be able to start making more video posts on the blog as well. (something I've been wanting to do for quite sometime now)

I'll keep you updated!

A sad tale to tell

Our final performance went great. We have a sell out crowd. My camcorder was their to capture all the magic… and it died.

Charity tried breathing life into it and actually recorded our scenes. But when I brought it back home to transfer to my computer…. it died.

Ho sad that we will never see these videos. But I do have pictures I will posting through out the week instead.

I’m taking a hammer to my camera in the morning. It deserves a quick and painful death.

On the flip side, we are not with the PCA anymore. Our church has left the denomination that weaves a Webb of deceit and has moved on. It’s better this way.

Ok, just so we’re clear: No comic strip this week. Just the pics! Have a great week everybody!

Ok, we’re going to play a little game today.

In the play I make a call from a cell phone to the hospital in search of a doctor. Now the cool thing is I can call anyone I want during the play.

So, the person who makes the most posts today before I leave to the theater will get to be the lucky person I call onstage DURING the show!!

If I don’t have your phone number and you end up being the one who wins, just e-mail it to me and I’ll call you up.

Post must a least be a few words and I’d love it if they meant something too. Just think, one of you will get to join me onstage tonight, How fun! I can’t wait to see who it is!

Everybody clear on the rules then? Ready, set, post!

Here are the final two pictures of my Footloose Photos! The first is our grand finale. (I like this picture the best) And the second is me taking a bow to the crowd!

This weekend is looking to be fantastic! I woke up early yesterday and made an impromptu visit to radio station K104 to do an interview. (Thank you Toby and John for letting me on the air without any notice!) I had a blast!

We talked about:

My character
Men who see “27 Dresses”
How Mikie Steele (cast member) smells like a bum
The cast. Including, Mark, Michael, Dana and what’s-her-face.
I even cut a promo for “Full Throttle: Bad Mother” the energy drink, before I left.

Great times.

And the crowd last night… amazing. We’re packing out the house on our final weekend. So have a great weekend folks and we’ll see you next week!

Momma Says!

Here are some more great Footloose pics of me singing my song "Momma Says" Of course this is one of my favorite scenes because the song is so funny and the guys I was with were so great! I hope everyone's weekend went well.
I was so tired last night I went to bed at 9 and didn't wake up till now! Whew! Feels like I've been asleep for a month!

The play's going real well! We've gotten some pretty big crowds every night! For those of you still wondering about tickets, they still have seats open for next weekend, but I would go get them now since these shows tend to sell out quick on the last weekend.

I should also have some pictures from the play in the next few weeks. I don't know about you folks, but this has been another fantastic week!

Willard goes clubbing!

Here's some more Footloose photos for your enjoyment. At first we see our hero mosey into the bar... very "wary-like".
Then his secrect is out... WILLARD CAN'T DANCE!
Lastly we see an ashamed Willard who is being ridiculed by three sisters who sang at the bar. It just seems like it's not our boy's day!
Don't worry... things turn out better in the end.
Have a great weekend everybody!

More Footloose Photos!

I just can't help it! Photo's are so much fun to post up that I think I may start doing it twice a week now.
The first one is me in my first scene which all of you probably saw the video to. But the next ones was from footage I never posted. This was the "Gym" scene and as you can see, I like snazzy in shorts! This was the big number before "Intermission" and it was a really good one too!
Ok, more comic strips and photo's to go this week. So have a good one folks!

Finally got some sleep today. Say, these weekend posts are becoming more frequent aren't they? I slept till 10, woke up, had breakfast with my brother and some friends and now am about to make a trip up to the mall, before I have to go in for another night at the theater!

We had a packed house last night and it was really exciting. They're expecting the same for tonight. Geez, if it wasn't for the 2 radio talk show hosts that are in it I could be taking all the credit for this one... sadly, I can't.

Have a great weekend folks!

Footloose Photo Fridays!

At long last, here we are! It's going on for at least the next few weeks I'll be posting up old photos from the Footloose show.
The first one is me trying to look all bummed in my cowboy outfit. (dork)
The second is me trying to impress the ladies. (double dork)
And the third is me trying to learn the dance moves Jonathan is throwing down.
As for the play I'm in right now "Oscar and Felix" (the Odd Couple) it's going along great! We've had two excellent shows back to back and this weekend looks to be just as exciting! This is the funniest play I've ever done. We were laughing so hard after Thursday nights show I thought we'd be heard off stage!!
I really enjoy my cast and will be posting pics from that show in the next few weeks as well. I will have some video footage of it after it's over for anyone who couldn't come see it. But until then you'll just have to hear about it from me.
More Footloose photos to come, so have a good weekend folks and I'll see you next week!

So I just took my monthly jaunt around the blog ring and I have to say… BOR-RING! Sure some people had really good blogs with important things to say but where’s the freshness? The excitement? The “more than once a month” post that we all look forward to?

I really had no idea what to do when I first opened up this blog. What would I post about? What about this would make it interesting enough for anyone to read? I thought you had to post frequently of the blog would shut down. I think I post more than anyone else I know?!

But have I ever had a blog with “deep thoughts” in it? Nope. Am I on a mission to send some sort of message for people reading my blog? Um… nope. Then what am I doing this for?


I think a lot of us forget that. People like to see comments on their blog. To tell them how many people are reacting to what they said. But not me! Whether I get 17 comments or 2 that week I still keep on truckin! So for those of you out there who think nobody cares because nobody ever post a comment on your blog, I say “Hooey!” Keep pumping them post out whether they like it or not!

Here comes Monday everybody… ready, set, BLOG!

Another weekend post

Guess I just feel generous right now and decided to make yet another weekend post. With all the crazy holidays being over it's good to finally be able to relax a little isn't it?

Just a few quick notes here, I recieved some Footloose photo's this week from a friend so I'll be posting some of them later on next week. Maybe call it "Footloose Photo Friday" or something like that!

So as promised there are more pictures in the process coming to the blog! Ok folks, have a great weekend!

(I just woke up half an hour ago)

Happy 2008!!

The new year is finally upon us Cardco fans! And I'm so glad to annouce the changes you will see on the blog for 2008.

First off, no more YouTube! I hate those people and now they've made it simply impossible for me to work with. My videos never post and now they won't even let me log on to my own account. So from here on out I'm done with them!

If ever I post a video it will be for this blog or my poorly ignored web site that I haven't touched in months. DOWN WITH YOUTUBE!!!

I annouced the digital camera already so you already know of my plan for more picture posts on the blog. I find myself enjoying those the most on other peoples blogs so I plan to give you more of that in 2008.

And finally, the comic strips. We've got some funny ones in store with you. I'm even coming up with more ideas as I speak and I know you're going to enjoy them all!

Here's to ya'll, Happy New Year everyone! I hope your celebration is as joyous as mine!
