Markers are still in place for where to stand when in line for something, everywhere to help prevent the spread of covid. I don’t think this is going to be our new normal, but do believe it’s going to be like this for a long time. Maybe it will end before christmas. Question is, which one?
What’s going on with me?
For those of you that actually visit the site, I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve talked bout the mess happening because of the corona virus. Sorry I’m not giving much an escape. This has been hurting me and a lot of people I know, and seeing them freak out is much more worrisome for me.
I want to make some kind of database and use my web space for the moment at the least to help bring attention to others that run small businesses, are artists that aren’t selling as much work, those who work events but are unable to because of the cancelations and postponements, or anyone else effected that I’m overlooking. But as of now, this is about the little guys.
I was on last nights episode of Mixed-ish, and was very noticeable in the back. Unfortunately this was the last show I was on and might be awhile till I’m on something again, completely because of corona virus. A lot of stuff has shut down because of it.
Anyways, originally I was supposed to be a coffee shop patron. I was there a few days before for a fitting to see what 80’s era closing would work best for me, and have ready for when I came back on set. Got there and gave me a completely different outfit because I guess the director or someone else thought I would work better as someone working at the joint.
One thing I particular funny that day was when I got to the stage I was on the other side of the counter and acting like I was working that job, so I asked one of the crew ladies what she would like to drink. She replied “I’ve had 3 expressos already” for the day and I said back, “Alright, one nyquil.” She had a good laugh at that.
This year did not start well for me. The first weekend after was good after Long Beach and No Pants, but rather slow since then. Events are getting canceled because of fears of the virus spreading, like South by Southwest, or pushed back like Coachella. Yesterday I learned my favorite convention, Ru Paul’s Dragcon was canceled this year, and today E3 Expo is the latest. I don’t know what’s next and this really bothers me because I need to go out and do stuff.
I’m not worried about catching anything because I recover from everything anyways. The need to move around is far too strong and it helps me out a lot. But if events like pride start getting canceled, we’re doomed.
At least for the time being. I’ve had the same one for most of the last decade, and it’s been really hard to find something new that fits what I’ve always had in mind to make. Here is a banner I made to use, but not sure I’ll end up using it at all. I’m going to be spending a lot of time figuring things out. But for now, this is what I shall be using. Who knows how long that will be for.
I got a nice bunch of photos this year, but for some reason this seemed a little smaller. I believe part of the reason was because the event page was made so so soon before it all happened so not as many people knew of it coming.
Anyways, I started off in Culver City, as I was the ride captain of that group. I had plenty of people I led, got them to Union where we met with the others coming from North Hollywood, Koreatown, Pasadena, East LA, and Willowbrook.
I didn’t get much in photos during this event. It might have been a good idea if I left much earlier in the day too, then I could have covered more, but noooo…. I had to wait till it was 9 to get on the metro so I can take advantage of the free rides from then till 2. Hopefully next time LA Metro will decide to start that up much sooner next new years eve.
In the last few days heavy winds have been going through California, and like always, it brings about fires. It’s what we get for living in such a nice place. That and the high costs of most things.
To make things worse some areas are getting their power turned off to help prevent fires from being started by electoral equipment. And even thought the power lines around my place are underground that didn’t stop the blackout from happening this morning, and still happening into the night.
Then to make it worse, the fires made it more difficult to go on my, outing, for the day. I hate wind.
While on an adventure I came across this couple who recently got themselves kittens. And those who know me best, know one of my missions in life is to pet all the creatures. I still remember when mine were babies 5 years ago. So adorable, and playful, especially upon my feet as I slept. Now I have to make sure the birds and lizards around my place are safe.
Well yesterday was a long and tiring day that prevented me from posting anything. But I’m back, and awake. Ever heard of the show, The Politician? Well I was on set for that. I watched through it but didn’t really catch my interest to much, but I know others liked it a lot. But I do have to admit there was some funny things that happened. I was there for two different scenes, The first involved a reenactment with Reagan from when he was in office. I was off to the side watching as everything was going down so I never really had the chance to be on camera.
The next was related to Ford, which was cut from the final product. Sigh. I spent a a large part of 10 years in highly uncomfortable shoes, and nothing on the broadcast to show for it. I also had a wig on for the first part. That was exciting at first, then because very painful. I don’t know how my friends that wear wigs in their cosplay do it. Well, that’s the background actor life.
