But after spending 30 mins (or was it 3 hours?) seeking out obscure D.C. punk band tracks - Swiz, downloading Yes's progressive rock masterwork Tales of Topographic Oceans and listening to a couple Game Theory tracks, I have to admit that this engine is unsane - and unsafe. I was stupified by the depth, speed and flexibility of the search. And results are supplemented with handy links to the original post/file, Amazon, YouTube, Wiki and something called 'Facebook" (that'll never catch on).
My last attempt at 'making it big in Hollywood' consisted of a visit to Central Casting. I sat in a big room, filled out a couple forms and stood in front of a camera for a few minutes. I think I was asked several questions - that I answered live - in order to get a feel for how I appeared on camera.
I did finally get a call to be a stand-in for some kid on Party of Five, I think. But by then I was back in Colorado. So close.
Recently on the incessant cajoling of Nate Warren (yes, yes... THAT Nate Warren, aka: Hector Bravado) I signed up to shoot and edit a submission for this crazy new game show that everyone is talking about - Don't Forget the Lyrics.
Basically, we were enlisted to support local rapper Tuwayne Foster (Url Grav-Y from 5 Points Plan) and his efforts to get on the show. Nate, Tuwayne and I hopped in the car and drove around spinning the radio dial hoping to find something that would showcase our lyrical prowess. Of course, video cameras are rolling as Tuwayne belts out wonderful renditions of "What's Love Got To Do With It", "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" and "Relax.' Pure gold, honestly.
