Well, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been light on the posting lately. Or if you’re a long time reader, it’s just par for the course for my slacker ass!! But, I’ve been worn out for most of the week, because after my long days of work, I zip on out to rehearsals for…

That’s right, almost 3 years of not appearing on stage (seriously, not since ‘Rudolph The Red-Hosed reindeer’ in December 2005) have gone by, and I’m back! I’m playing Jason Chenier in the Baltimore premiere of the Tony-winning play “Take Me Out”. It’s been a fun rehearsal process, and I’m eager for us to open tomorrow night, so that I can both share my work with the community, AND get my life back. Rehearsal every night is killer! But I’m mostly pleased with the show, and my performance in it. Oh and I get naked in it, as does most of the cast.

So if your interested in seeing it, head to Fells Point Corner Theatre to get information on performances & tickets.

Oh and that picture above is our poster. I love how retarded I look in it. It’s like I’m in a promo photo for either ‘Nunsense’ or ‘Angels in The Outfield’ and they cropped my dumb head right into the center. Awesome!!

…with Hercules & Love Affair. After all the hype I’d been reading, I got to listen to they’re album on the flight to London and was not disappointed. I bought it when I returned to the states (cheaper in the US… and with 2 bonus tracks), and have fully fallen under their spell. Their melding of so many dance oriented genres blend together so seamlessly, and are emphasized by the atypical selection of vocalists. Expect this to be near the top on my end of 08 countdown!!

I try to space out talking about the same thing over and over again. However one of my new favorite musicians, Jay Brannan has posted a cute new video of his travels in UK to promote his excellent album, ‘goddamned’. Since I was just in London a few weeks ago, this video makes me all giddy. Plus he’s cute & funny. Maybe I’ll make him my imaginary boyfriend.

Slackerosity prevails!! A week and a half after I got back from London (AKA best Vacation ever) I had travel plans to visit my parents in Florida for a week. Another great getaway, but it seems like my life has been kinda dangling for the past month, between a week away, a week home, then a week away again. But it was totally worth it, obviously, and it may sound it, but I’m not complaining.

As usual, the blog suffered while I was out having a good time.

Get used to it though, as I’ve busied myself up with a full plate this fall. Along with work following it’s regular course of being pretty busy in every month except July & December, I’m taking Sociology online this semester, and that course starts this week. And since I’m notoriously good at balancing work and school (HA!), I’m finally returning to the community theatre stage here in Baltimore!

I haven’t been onstage (December 2005) since before I started the blog (June 2006), and only auditioned once about a year and a half ago to get back into it (didn’t get cast, not bitter tho). So now I’m appearing as Jason Chenier in the Baltimore premiere of ‘Take Me Out’. I’m pretty excited, I think my character is perfect for me, and I love the script. I’m stoked to be back into one of my hobbies, and hopefully the short rehearsal process will lend itself to me doing a decent job of juggling all the balls in my life. Heh… balls.

So that’s the catching up with toonsntunes portion of the blog today. Hopefully I’ll post regularly in the coming months. But you know… if I don’t… there’s plenty of other bloggers who do. Just stay away from Perez Hilton.

Jay Brannan & Margaret Cho have recorded a duet… sure to be setting the charts on fire any minute now!

Also, be sure to keep your eyes pealed for Margaret’s new reality show debuting on VH1 on Sunday, August 21st!!


Picked up this single while I was in the UK. Really loving this guy. His album is on iTunes for $7.99. Go get it!!
