Quote of the day:
Before I refuse to take your questions, I have an opening statement.
So, here I am at home in my second bedroom having a little drink at 7:30 AM in celebration of a new job starting Monday. I always attribute my issues in life ultimately boiling down to one major flaw:
NOT ENOUGH MONEY.
Oh, I work full time and so does my wife. It's just not enough. In America the jobs that pay rediculously low wages abound and the good paying jobs are few and far between....
I will not only be continuing to work my $8.40 an hour full time job unloading trucks....
I will also be doing a full time assembler job at $12.00 an hour.
It's funny, you see, I have amazing computer skills, but I also have manufacturing skills and in the end they don't care about the computer skills unless you have recent work experience in the field. No, my many HD video productions and musical creations mean nothing to them.... Oh... yes... and they mean nothing to talent agencies either.
You see, It took me a LONG time to realize I want to be an actor or at the very least be involved in production. I only have one demand, I will pay nothing for schooling for either one.
Simply put: I can do it all already.
Can I learn from others that have more experience than me? Of course! I am more than willing to listen and learn new things video and acting wise.... ON THE JOB. I have been to the major talent agency in Pennsylvania and well.. they wanted me to pay $50.00 a week for acting lessons. Thing is... If I HAD $50.00 to spare....(I had to borrow $10.00 for gas money from my mom just to drive to the talent agency.) That 50.00 is better spent advertising for my already impressive works.
It's a fact.... In this vast internet world, it's HARD to stand out now. YouTube is flooded. Heck, just yesterday I received a spam link to a guys YouTube. He has over 4k Subscribers and I guarantee it's primarily due to his advertising. ... It's a sad thing to admit... but If people aren't seeing you, you aren't getting anywhere.
So! My many plans and dreams are to work two jobs. Put money in an account. Pay off a few bills, take my wife out to a nice dinner and then put some money into some decent advertising..... In addition to Better equipment and props for videos.... I can't tell you guys.... but.... I have SO MANY IDEAS written down for comedy skits and etc.
I could literally make a show with the comedy skits I have written down. I am an amazing writer. (glug glug sips drink.)
But without the props to do these videos I can't pull them off.... and that means money. See? lol. I keep going back to that same thing. And trust me, I hate money. I hate the world we live in where money has to be such an issue.
In fact, I have a song I am working on that is exactly about that!
Anyways, I am going to be blogging more often to get my rants and ideas out so feel free to check and I hope you guys have a great day!
I have also been live streaming almost every other night playing games.
