Earthquakes and Fun Stuff

In firstly unrelated news, here’s a fun video that was produced from the photo tour I was a part of a few weeks ago. I’m in it a few times and my pictures are dispersed throughout. Enjoy.And now, a true story.We woke up at 4 this morning to the earth shaking, and had nothing to do with it. http://www.newsoxy.com/earthquake/los-angeles-12781.htmlIndeed! I woke up around 4 to some quaking earth! Sam and here sister were here. Sam and I were fast asleep in our room, with our house guest Carrie in the other room when it got all rumbly. As soon as I realized what was going on I ran us all under the doorframe in the hall and covered our heads. It was a 4.4 I read. Nothing fell over or shifted or anything. It lasted maybe 15 seconds. It felt interesting considering I hadn't felt one in a long while but nothing really happened other than the sound waves freaking us out. We're a-ok!I’ve got some plans today mostly involving Santa Monica and the Ocean, followed by figuring out some sche…

My weeks have been moving smoothly like butta. I’ve had some good stuff going on. I went to the photo tour gala and had a great time at a VIP room @ House of Blues last week. I got to meet some interesting people and have some lovely conversations about photography. I got some free shwag in the form of tickets to Universal Studios and Madame Tussaud’s in addition to good food and drink. House of Blues smelled better than I expected. The savory smell of patchouli wafted in the express elevator I was shown to and when I got up to our area the mood lighting and art on the walls made me feel pretty good about the whole experience. Even better, I’ve been invited to more events and I love the culture and the chance to capture some of it with my little camera.I had my art show last Saturday and I had some fun friends come out and got to show my art to Pasadena for the first time. There was a very good turnout and my paintings will be there for two weeks. If you are in the area of Nova Galler…

Misadventures in LA

Malibu Heights
by snoweyes. Hello! Let's update my life.

Yesterday we took a wonderful hike up in Malibu. There's some great nature, waterfalls, and abandoned structures. As you can see the house was huge before it burned down in the 80s and eventually got turned into a public hiking trail. The first time I came was with my old friend River Behnkin back in 2004 and I've been yearning to return.

Last Sunday Sam and I were invited to go on a photo tour, sponsored by the LA Tourism Department, Discover LA and Star Line Tours. The photo part of the day was extremely fun. I've uploaded a ton of pictures from the event if you want to see my images.

The day was filled with emotional highs and lows. Before the tour even began, we made a few wrong turns and were nearly late. We found some parking a few blocks away and rushed to join the tour. An all-day tour can be exhausting, if only for all the direct sunlight on an open double-decker bus. I brought my hat and shades but ended…

Why I love my life, or some of my acting work.

In the near future I’ll have my videos squashed and edited into one tasty segment for you to see. I’m kind of waiting for the full release of the Duncan Christopher Movie before that happens, so I’ve put a smattering of some of my projects out there for you to see. If I can get the ok, I would also love to put up some of my most recent show as Smee in Cathy Rigby’s Peter Pan. I would also love to get some of my Petro Pete Voice-over work that ended up in cartoons I never saw, as well as work as the Cripple in a TBN film about Jesus. We shall see. Check back on this post for additions.If you like what you see, feel free to look at my resume and hire me for a gig, huh? I’m Sag Eligible and entirely willing to wiggle my eyebrows for you.Here’s a bit of video fun:
