Packed and ready to go, sorta. Got my clothes for Spain and an extra bag for some sun in the Bahamas.

See you in the next week or two.

Day 15: Tick Tock tick tock, now with pictures

leave a comment »

As I was writing this new update, I couldn’t help but realize how quick time goes by.

I finally did it, I stayed home today.  It felt good to tidy up the place, sit down relax and just do nothing.  Catching up with some dropped connections, making a list of people that i need to meet up with for work and pleasure 😉

The travel bug has bit me again.  So glad to be able to pick up and go without anyone holding me back.


… oops sorry if one of thoes were nsfw

Day 14: Close encounter of the 4th kind

leave a comment »

Saw Forth kind tonight and i must say i thought it would be much scarier.

I have always found exterterestrials scary. I do belive in aliens, i look back at my like and theres been a few times that ive been freaked out by possible close encounters.  Dont really want to get into it now, but yeah… this movie gave me a few goose bumps at some point but it didnt deliver fully.  I love putting myself in situations where i know ill get scared.  But this movie had no climatic point.  It had the buildup but i was waiting for the shot of the actual alien or some crazy experimentation.  But it never happened…

Had some really really good fried chicken… To you NYC residents Make sure to have some blue ribbon fried chicken before you DIE. yes i know its a bad thing to say, but it was that good.  Make sure to ask for extra honey.

Then had the perfect ending to a long day out.

4 more days till i peace out of this joint.

Day 13 : Friday the 13th

leave a comment »


Loving it, just came back from a relaxing day, did a quick 15 min audition for an eclipse gum ad.  Got some dinner and saw “Precious”.  I have to admit that i was expecting a movie with some violence, some drama, and the fairy tale ending.  but i was so wrong. i dont want to ruin the movie for anyone so i just want to let everyone know that you should ALL watch it.

Bumped into director John Chu (step up movies) as i was leaving the party.  Hes hooking me up to an audtion in december.  Hopefully its a speaking role, and i hope he left that lame ass party.

Once i started this “vacation” i now have the luxury of making plans since im not on call anymore.  I do have alot of free time, beside the gym I’ve went back to one of my first jobs as a producer / broadcast engineer.  Working on some promos and now im also in need of an aftereffects  artist and some actors.  I have to admit that tho teh economy is down… television and film are booming.  Finding a fulltime job might be hard, but why fulltime when freelance pays almost double!

on that note, ive decied that i will pick a topic everyday in addition to my random blabering.


Hope you all had a good week & here’s to a great weekend!

Day 12: More Photos & Vacation… sorta

with one comment

So after the commercial and some side work, i’ve decided that i would take the rest of this month off since im going away soon anyway.

Tired of making plans where i would have to cancel last minute since im on call all day and everyday.  So from today on till December i’m free to run around the city, eat, take some photos, and vacation away.

Here are some shots to begin with.

Day 11: In love with Mondays

leave a comment »

Started my day off at 10am, got to set and wrapped at 2pm!

Was a fake contestent on a TLC / what not to wear.  Then they brought in the not so well dressed “victim”.  Saw it all unfold infront of my eyes.  It actually very fun!

Meet up with a buddy to grab some lunch and spent the beautiful afternoon just killing some time with some dirty spanish phrase books. (in preperation for our trip)  Then I went back to the gym, its been a week but it felt good to run again.

Had a “lite” dinner at noyona and came home.  Good thing is i’m tired! its only 10pm and im tired! It feels good to be tired at an early hour.  Maybe i’ll even sleep early tonight!.


Tomorrow is another day, most people just follow that same rotine over and over.  My suggestion, change it up before you get bored.

Day 10: Photo Update + 500 days

leave a comment »

Spent my weekend bickering and fighting with friends… but in a good way.    Eating and just forgetting about my problems.  Looking forward to working on a untitled project tomorrow in union square park.  Should be interesting and ill get into it when i get more details but its suppose to be hush hush.

Came home and popped in the movie (i guess people cant really say this anymore, it’s more like clicked)  500 days of summer.  I dont know why i havent seen this sooner and well, isn’t it weird how its been around 500 days since.  eh maybe its just a coincidence.

“Coincidence, thats all anything ever is, nothing more than coincidence. There are no miracles. There is no such thing as fate. Nothing is meant to be.”

PS. i love mondays, its a fresh start.
