Care for a beer.. or blood?

I had a dream about vampires last night. It's already evening here so the memory is very vague.. I vaguely remember the bits I went through in my head immediately after waking that I've mostly forgotten by now.. but there were vampires.

It wasn't a scary dream.. at least I don't think so. It was like the bits in all the tv shows where vampires and other supernatural folk are hanging out doing mundane human like things, where everyone was doing mundane human like things.

It came out of watching Lady Gaga videos last night.. of course.. and somehow I found myself in a world where some people are just vampires and everyone just accepts it. At least I think so.. the vampire Erik (I know they spell it Eric but that's wrong! He's Swedish it should be spelt with a K.. and those Eriks are so much cooler.. of course :P ) wasn't in it but I was expecting him.. or something. At least I think so.

Apart from that.. well I think I was vaguely worried for a tiny bit of it but not because I was afraid of having my throat ripped out.. or at least I think so. I don't really know.. I just know it had something to do with vampires.

I really should write this stuff down. When I actually remember some of it.

A couple of things.

I had all these ideas in my head to write about, but I forgot them.

Oh well.. can't have been all that important then. Mostly stupid stuff like.. um.. it'll come to me, at some time when I'm not writing or about to write and I'll store it away in the murky recesses of the lump o grey matter and by the time I'll get around to writing again it will be forgotten. Just a prediction.

Oh I changed my profile pic. Well I haven't as of speaking but I sort of intend to so if I do in the near future then it will be changed by the time anyone gets around to seeing it. And if I narrow it down to people who a) read, b) regularly read c) regularly read and have been for a while so they would recognize that it's changed well... that's one person, if I'm lucky.

I really should start.. um.. what was it again?

Being all dorky and stuff.

It's Monday and the word o' the day is:

potlach: A ceremony at which gifts are bestowed on the guests in a show of wealth that the guests later attempt to surpass.

I quite like that.

That's all.. carry on.

It's silly every season here..

Bet you can't guess what I did last night.

Told you you couldn't guess. Ok I'll tell you. I went to a christmas party. Yeah, a weird thing to do in July.. but someone we know knows someone who does this christmas in July thing and owns a bar so we went to that. It was pretty silly, with tinsel and baubles and a noisy auction. Quite fun, overall.

That wasn't the highlight of the day however. Neither was the psychological drama type movie, you know the kind about stuff that seems scientific but doesn't exist that you can't really follow but is entertaining anyway, if the music score is a little overbearing. No, the highlight of yesterday was the woman who looked at my intentionally funky and cool outfit of short skirt and stripey stockings like I was dressed in an unbecoming way, who had on an oversized shirt, belted.

I don't know if you get the significance of that, but try to visualize. Oversized shirt. Belted.

And she was looking at me like I was decked out poorly.

Now I'm about the most open minded person you'll ever meet, the last person who would be likely to join the ranks of the fashion police, but this sin against style, fashion and the helpless people on the street who are forced to view it should be severely punished. 1986 is long gone and it needs to stay there.

You Read it Here.

I'm going to work. That's right, work!

I don't mean like.. boring shit you do in order to make money. I'm already doing that, and yes, I actually am working quite a lot at the mo.. well not getting much if any money for it, but I'm doing that, but it's beside the point, that's not what I mean.

I'm talking about stuff that matters, creative stuff, stuff that probably won't but gives me just the slightest edge in doing something meaningful and interesting with my life, that is acting stuff, movie stuff and that sort of stuff.

You may know, by reading this blog and knowing a little about me that I've done bugger all acting this year so far, I've had a few false starts in small things but nothing really, and I'm getting behind... so many years and not a whole lot to show for it, and it bothers me.

I've known for a while I have to stop depending on people choosing me for their projects and/or said projects ever being completed because when you're me, it rarely to never happens. I might well be an omen... well more than an omen a clear sign based on real life criteria that I'm just not cut out for this acting thing well I'm actually rather convinced that it is but I'd rather not dwell on it. What I need is a solution for not having any of me out there... and the only solution is to do it myself.

Like I said.. I've known this for a while, and I've been meaning to do stuff, that is put together some videos, however small and crappy, just to have stuff out there but I've not done it yet, and telling you my reading public here and now is supposed to motivate me to actually do it so I'm saying it and you're reading it.

I could use a holiday..

Really. I mean.. although I have been actually working sorta recently it's still not all that much and hasn't been for all that long.. and it's just over a month since I got back from my trip to Israel but..

I'd like to take off somewhere again. I mean, there are people who go places not long after they've been places.. I've always been more of one who never really goes places* but that just means I have a lot to catch up on..

it's summer, there's the sea... and I could go somewhere like, Croatia, or Italy again, or to Spain, or somewhere else in Europe I haven't been.. or Italy again. Somewhere by the sea. Italy maybe.

I wouldn't mind going to Italy again. I would also like to go somewhere there's a beach.. one by the sea.

Just pondrin and stuff.

Stuff... and stuff.

I remember once upon a time I used to have stuff to write about. Or I remember a time, more than one time, on and off I wrote lots.. and most of those times I would look back upon a golden age where I used to write about "stuff" and not just stuff.. you know.. my diary sort of thing. There was a time when I used to do it, I think. Actual posts about actual.. um.. well written or an attempt at good writing about something in particular. I think I did, or maybe I just always looked back to a time when I did.

I don't do that anymore. I sometimes think I did it more recently than I did but for the last 2, 3 maybe 4 years the bulk of my writing, when I in fact do write is stuff like my day.. what I'm complaining about at the mo.. dorkism or this kind of thing, which is blogging about blogging but not very intensively.. just sort of rambling. And then there's the just sort of rambling but not about anything in particular, sort of a cross between the first one and this one.

If you followed all that I'll give you a gold star.

Only 165 to go now...

Do you know that it's the 200th day of the year today? Well it is. It's one of those bits of useless information you just know when you're doing the 365 project. Well it's probably the only one but it's a pretty cool one as far as bits of useless information go. I haven't had a chance to show it off as much as I'd hoped I would but there's still time to contrive a conversation that will fit it in a few times. If I manage to do it an average of every 11 days I can get 15 goes out of it. I shall be disappointed if I don't get at least that many.

It's cooled down a bit, it's quite nice out there at the moment

Every day is like today.

It is really. Think about it.

Today has been relatively dull, and if you have the slightest knowledge of the sort of thing it's relative too then you'll understand that it's very dull indeed.

I will set foot out of the house in a little bit and do something, so the interestingness rating of this day might rise to slightly more interesting than usual, which, if you have any idea of what is usual, is very dull indeed.

I would mention that it's cooled down, and it actually rained a bit and earlier on it was almost cold.. at least relatively, but I've been writing an awful lot about the weather lately and even though it's pretty clear no matter what my subject matter is, I don't want to be too over the top obvious about the fact that my life is boring, I'm completely boring and I'm a boring writer who only ever writes about stuff that's utterly boring so I won't.

Something you didn't know..

I'm making assumptions here, based on probability, or something, about people who I know nothing to very little about. Ok so one person.. most likely.

Anyway, I bet you didn't know that the elephant is the only mammal that can't jump. You may have known that actually, I don't really know it just seems like the kind of thing a lot of people wouldn't know because of reasons such as a) it being a useless bit of information, b) being something most of us don't care about and c) probably some other reason.

On top of that, I'm not entirely sure it's even true, ie not actually an actual fact as the source I got it from isn't the most reliable. It was tv. And it wasn't a documentary it was sort of a throwaway line by one of the characters, someone who as far as we know isn't an expert on this sort of thing.

I could google it and find out if it's true, but it's more fun this way.

Ok now I think that's enough.

I don't know if it's this hot where you are, but it is here. It hasn't let up yet, this unbearable heat. A couple of days have hovered around 26 or 27 around the earlier morning hours and looked for a while like it might be a "nice" day.. that is sunny, blue skied and not stupidly hot, but they all ended up stupidly hot by noon.

Honestly what does one do with this weather? If you ain't got anywhere good to swim, or everything air conditioned you just.. whine. I guess that's my answer.

*continues grumbling*

For the audience..

if you are indeed out there. Well one can hope.

It's a Thursday.. at least I think it is.. so I thought I'd present y'all with a pic.

"silver spoons"

And if you like you can caption it.

The pointlessness of being me..

I'm actually kind of busy these days... that is, for me, doing stuff that isn't really making me any money, nor is helping to make the world a better place or what I really want to be doing but there's one thing going for it, and it helps keep my mind off the fact that my life is pointless and going absolutely nowhere.

By the way my life is pointless and.. well.. you can guess the rest.

I've done "literally" nothing acting related this year. Nothing at all! Except for that interview thing with that one group and a filming of being silly on the island with pirates with the same group and a couple of castings that led to nothing and another casting yesterday which led to nothing, at least I'm assuming it led to nothing because it was quite crap and no one looked interested.

Well I have a meeting with someone tomorrow who until this morning I thought was one of the many start and fizzle outers.. who I had a missed meeting with a month or so ago.. so I'll see how that turns out. Maybe I'll have a tiny role in something that actually happens.. it's better than nothing..

Why am I telling you this? I don't know. I figured it was time I posted something again.

Saturday, July 10, 2010

*sweats and stuff*

It's just too bloody hot. It was 32 degrees today.. 32! And plans to be tomorrow again. That's just too hot. After all that drizzle and overcastness... (March, April, May and most of June) it got hot. It mostly stayed hot just varied in the degrees a little.

Anyway we're on the "real hot" phase of this hotness. And it's too hot.

And there's not much else going on, not much worth writing about anyway. I think it might just become another low posting month...

oh and it's hot.

Thursday, July 01, 2010

So July Huh?

We begin another month. Another leaf turns in the passage of... oh whatever.

Big trip done, most of the photos edited, visitors come and gone. It's now officially back to normal. Normal being the state of things being the usual way, but I'm not sure what that is. It all changes anyway. There are new things going on and what seems like a heatwave is affecting us at the moment so there's people around all the time and I spend my time trekking around the city in the heat.. which isn't that different from the past 2 weeks really... but we'll see. The last of the possibilities re acting stuff I have, or had at the moment seems to have flaked so I have nothing going on in that direction and nothing to look forward to which kind of seriously sucks but I'm coping.

Apart from that, not much is going on.
