Calling all writers....

From my friend Bonnie comes this invitation. I know a lot of you are great writers so I thought I would pass the word.


Hey everyone,

As you may have heard, we're doing the first ever Cricket Feet Casting Actors Showcase coming up here in ten days. Woo hoo! Well, we're looking for some really wonderful, original, *comedic* material (two- to four-minute scenes--no monologues) for some really wonderful, brilliant, comedic actors for our NEXT SHOWCASE, which will take place the week of July 23rd.

The goal is to populate our showcases with the most amazingly talented actors we know and, while we're at it, showcase the material of some fantastic writers in front of the coolest "buyers" in the industry.

So... if you've got some goods you want "out there," hit me with an email at cricketfeet AT gmail DOT com (I know, I know... I have so many freakin' email addresses... I use them for "routing" and "air traffic control," let's just say--so only use that address for showcase-related stuffs, please).

No pay (yet... when Cricket Feet is HARPO, sure... we'll pay writers and actors will showcase for free and all sorts of cool things like that, but we're still starting out, so...) and we'd need the goods by May 14th.

Thanks, all!

Oh, and feel free to add the Cricket Feet Casting Actors Showcase to your friends' list at MySpace. ;)

This is one of the first photos I took for my photography class. I really like this one.

Actor Roscoe Lee Browne dies

I loved him in The Cowboys with John Wayne. He was one of my favorite characters.

Rest in peace, Roscoe.

Kurt Vonnegut, Dead at 84

“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’ ”

Rest in peace, Kurt.
