Frak it!

F*ck you all, with your creative thoughts and disposable income and your clothes that fit on non-water-retaining bellies...

I'm going as a voyeur. In my regular clothes that are warm and comfortable and have shoes with arch support.

I fart in your general direction.

Call it, Norma Rae

Holy fuacamole. Hold on to your hats, kids.

Networking 101

Dude. It wasn't meant as an exclusive Hollywood shindig, but I've got the coolest friends in the world...So by no design of mine, I'm now hosting an amazing Halloween mixer. Already confirmed are a film producer, a punk rocker, a director, a casting director, a journalist/screenwriter, a new showrunner, and two Emmy winners. Yeah, I have to buy more wine and cheese!

So come start your Halloween at Cinespia with us watching The Shining at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary, then go on to your respective plans (but may I suggest Mini Kiss at Carnivale in Boys' Town).

Post Secret Sunday

This one made me go hmmn...possible I've done the equivalent to someone recently...

But sometimes a woman needs ten minutes to decipher what the hell you mean, eh? If only men were as clear in their communications as "I love you." Can't have us in control of our emotions and spontaneously emotional at the same time, guys. Make up your minds!

Love scene

Had a lot of questions about how it went great. Rewrote the scene for a man instead of a boy and cast my friend Trevor Murphy from Conventioneers, who is beyond rad. He was a total pro, oodles of fun, handled me great, and the scenes are so hot. Good deal.

Yes, I'm nude in the film. Once you see my whole backside getting out of a pool, and then when I seduce Trevor's character you see my double d's for five seconds for the foreign markets. Doing my part to sell the film, and show average-sized women are goddesses of love, too.

And now I must play the Hollywood selling game and drop 25 pounds. I'm going to try my 4 Hour Work Weekdude's two plans if you want to join me. Be done in time for Thanksgiving!

The Shoot

is going great. Halfway through the last week. Footage looks amazing. Marc Shap is a golden god, so are the actors, and everyone involved darnit!

Had fun today. Good day. We put Hero in it yesterday and today. everyone loved him; such a star.

So effing tired. Sleep is for the weak. Tomorrow is my love scene, and I look sooooo haggard. Good times.

Brenda (Nurse Sis) is in charge of the first anual "Free to Breathe Lung Cancer 5K" event in LA on November 11th. It's at 8:30 am at Lake Balboa Park in Encino.

Chauntal Lewis, star of The Commune, will be there and so will we!

If you're intrested in volunteering, walking, donating, sponsoring, spreading the word, go to

"Lung Cancer is the #1 cancer killer of both men and women in the US. You can help change this."

Also along the lines of volunteering/getting involved, it's time for me to pick my next cause. Once the shoot is wrapped, I'm hoping to get a job in activism (perhaps at Hollywood Hill...) or join a non-profit Board again. If you have any thoughts, let me know.

New 'do

Here's the hair for my scenes next week. And the lovely lass with me is buddy Riawna Capri, hairstylist to the stars.

Got my eyebrows done after this, and will of course have makeup on for my 20-something onscreen luvah. Sadly, the eyeglasses met an untimely demise shortly after the creation of this picture, so I will mostly likely be having a naked-face party the world is invited to. Raw deal. I is my glasses.


Lost my right sidebar again, presumably for posting something too big in this section. Drat. What was it? One of the photos? The Myspace video of Leto Atraides perhaps? Dammit Blogger, don't you know it's against the laws of the universe to take down Mcavoy once he's been posted?

UPDATE: got it. Stupid Myspace video. Alright, I compromised and made Mcavoy a teensy bit smaller. Urgh.

More Commune


Oh lord. Just had to send a notice to everyone that I'm a casting a 20 year old luvah. You know...for a love scene with MY character.


UPDATE: Whoa. Getting some unexpected responses to the ad I sent out into the webiverse.

Really unexpected. I'll put it here under comments for you to read. I was just being my normal jackhole self, and somehow it became a very effective personal ad.

Huh. Cool.

Needing a little Atreides, a little Mcavoy

I'm sure he's not little. I'm sure he's...argh. Must stop now, find vibrator...

Broke my favorite pair of glasses today, and can't find a replacement pair online. So I'm off to a date in a much more expensive yet far inferior pair. Drat, I hate that. Feel off like I'm wearing a broken heel or something...

If I can ever find my USB cord, I'll upload the photo of the new haircut/color today for the shoot next week. Good timing, boy oh boy. It's shagelicious, and my favorite datee loves brunettes. Hopefully I can wrap the shoot and see him before the color fades.

Ohhhh such a glamorous life, guerilla filmmaker...

Fixing Emma by Heidi Hornbacher and Pistoleras by me were both just awarded Quarterfinalist status in Creative Screenwriting Magazine's Expo 6 Competition. Sweet!

And even better, these two screenplays are next up on our producing docket! Whoo-hoo!
