Well I went in to the casting call this morning. Actually I ran into Flip’n’Skip AKA Terry on the way, and he said he was readin through this the other day, so shoutouts to Teznoo!! I rocked up to Redken and went on in to find a room full of ‘glamourous model types’ and waited around with them…. Then three redken Reps came on in and peroused the field, asked about availability and stuff, and then went around for an indepth look at peoples hair. They had a specific brief for this ‘show’, and pretty quickly sorted out who they wanted. in the end they picked 6 girls and 2 guys. Most were in the category of ‘really really really good looking’ but a couple were average joes, or whatever the female version of joe is (Joelane, or Joeline maybe??). They said that if there were any other ‘shows’ in the future they’d call the rest of us. I still figure I’d like to hair model at some point in time, preferably in the near future. I hear ‘Intrigue‘ in Chatswood does it very often, but I put my name down once and never got a callback. Seems like a bit of a trend in my life…. Actually Little Jo at Antics wanted me to be her hair model, but it’s a bit different when I live in Sydney. I reckon modelling for her woulda been heaps of fun….
My hair is in a bit of a state at the moment. I plucked one out, straightened it (yes my hair is slightly curly) and measured it and it’s 10cm in length…. My last haricut was in January before we went to Hong Kong at Hair After, and that was just to neaten things up. The last ‘radical’ change was in September last year?? when I went down to Canberra for Johns 25th. I went and saw Little Jo at Antics and she sorted me out with some form of stylisation and some colour (red and blonde if I remember correctly) Anyway, there is some form of point to this; I figure in my current financial situation I shouldn’t be gettin pricey cuts, or even medial priced ones, but like $8 asian cuts or something…. But then I see in the paper that Hair Models are needed by Redken, and with any luck I’ll be struttin my stuff down some ‘Hairwalk’ with a fancy new style sittin on my head. I find out on Wednesday whether I’m eligible or not.
Man it’s been ages and ages since I’ve updated this thing!!! So what’s been happening??! Not a whole heap in the grand scheme of things actually. Over Easter I went to Katoomba Easter Convention (www.kcc.org.au) with my family, and learnt plenty about The Holy Spirit. There were quite alot of people from church there, so I got to hangout with them somewhat. Apart from that things have been fairly average in terms of events and all, going along to Bible Study, doing Munchkins with the preschool aged kids. I did have some family troubles with them blaming me for the internet not working, but we sorted that out one night with a big talk. Turns out they had some troubles with me being unemployed cause of all the strain on them as well. If anyone can offer job tips, or help me out with acquiring a job then get in touch, it’d be mucho appreciated.
Things have been pretty stagnant, slow and slack over the last two days. Yesterday was almost a complete write off with pretty much procrastination and time wastage the whole day long. This morning was much the same, but I consciously decided to get up and out of the house for the afternoon and go and do some work where the self-distractions are less. Armed with about 7 reference resumes/CVs, an email from Mike Barry of , my latest sketchbook, several pens and a pacer, I headed off to Macquarie Centre to sink my teeth/hands into some design related work, both for getting me a job and improving my skills. Odd place I know, especially whenMultimedia usually consists of computerised stuff, but I actually managed to get a fair whack of work done. I proceeded to ‘The Loft Cafe‘ and 2 Lattes ‘later I’d gone through the CVs and found some good language to use and several pointers for structure and style, as well as planning some CHONGLAND extensions and refurbishments, including Jacques De and Lambs2Slaughter ‘mini-sites’. Big bonus was some of the company that happened to be at the cafe, let’s just say that she is real pretty and has a great smile. Luckily I got to have a short chat and that was expanded on/developed later on. The bad thing is that I’m struggling to get to sleep now, not sure if it’s the 2 Lattes’ or if it’s the great feeling that comes about when you talk to a nice person, but if this keeps up I might need some sleeping pills or something. All in all a good day that seems to be shaping up a great week to come. Props to all involved
Hey everyone, hope things are well, and if they’re not then the struggles are building you up in some way, shape or form. For me it’s been up and down. I was fortunate enough to work last monday and tuesday with Geoff as a labourer. I also got to hang out with about 14 three & four year old kids at Munchkins on wednesday morning whilst the women have prayer and bible study groups and that was heaps of fun. Kids are on the most part innocent and intuitive, plus they have a great sense of freedom in thought and action. Oh to have the innocent mind of a child again, how great would it be!!! I visited my cousin a couple times in Hospital. She had some problems with Epilepsy I think, and it was pretty severe, so the doctors opened up her head and tinked around in there. She had this cool scar across her skull with staples holding it together, but she’s out of hospital now, and the doctors are pleased with her progress. I went to the engagement party of a couple at church and caught up with various people from church there, met some new ones and got to know some more people, which is always good. Tonight at church we heard Mike speak on John, and how if we believe then God adopts us as his children, even though we are scoundrels, misfits, rebels that are lowly beings when compared to God. He accepts us and brings us into his family. How amazing and wonderful is that!!! After church a fairly large contingent went to Jem’s place and I had the priviledge of talking to more people and getting to know them, and so right now I’m feeling good, even though I may not be in the best position if you look at it from ‘the worlds’ point of view, but I’m happy and satisfied.
The weekend is over, finally…. It’s been a pretty big and tiring one, but fun nonetheless. Saturday involved a long trip out to Windsor for THE housewarming of Altamira & Lisa AKA Godzprincess & MerCee. The Lino on underlay was good, could have been bigger and less kiddies would have been better, but you take what you get. In attendance from the “IdM” arena were Nebster, Son Of Thunder, Whackrhymes & Fleaster. “Ex-pats” there were Zest*One and Kinetic. I got some good video footage so when I’ve cut that all up and together, I’ll whack it up for yall to see. Saturday night saw the onslaught that was 2Tribes. Of the Internationals, I managed to see Prodigy for 1 track (before sound cut out and I didn’t bother to wait for the HOUR that it took to get it back on), Luke Chable, Signum, Grandmaster Flash, Dave Seaman, Armand Van Helden, M.I.K.E. Push and Rank 1. Most were pretty good, some were a little unexpected though. Pick of the night was Dave Seaman with his smooth flowing Progressive and enjoyable antics behind the decks. Sunday was a day of sleep for the most part and today I laboured again, my hands are really showing it though, and my back is feeling it. But my wallet and the economy is a bit happier. Well, I’m about ready to hit the sack, so off to make my lunch for tomorrow and pass out in bed. Till Next time!
This morning I was just half awake around 7 am, wanting to get some more sleep, when who should ring but a mate from church, Geoff. He asks me if I was doing anything today and if not, did I want to go and work on site with him. I said yeah, and he gave me the address and told me to be there at 8. within about 20 minutes, I had showered, dressed, eaten breakfast (well, a bowl of Kellogg’s Komplete) and out the door. The day was pretty good, moved bricks, did some ‘paving’, dug some trench, carted some sand around, swept some floors, and now I’m just a little bit more tired, perhaps a tiny bit ‘bigger’ and a bit richer as well. Plus I got to meet Geoff‘s boss, Arthur, and have a bit of a chat to Geoff about how things are going. Had a pretty nice dinner tonight, my sister cooked Minestrone, Garlic Bread, Veal, Potatoes and Peas. Went down a treat. The weekend brings on some fun and games, which should be good. I’ll be heading to a housewarming where I’ve been told there will be Lino on underlay, so plenty of bboying to be done, and then I’m heading to 2Tribes with ‘The Boys‘ to see Prodigy, Dave Seaman, Armand Van Helden, Signum, and a host of other international and local DJs. Plus on Sunday I have church, which is always good. Thinking I’ll have to get my act together and talk to a certain someone I’m interested in and see how things go from there. Off to see ‘The Aviator‘ now.
Happy New Year!!! It’s the year of the Rooster and with it comes a few traditions. We’re supposed to clean up things before the new year and in days of old my parents used to get new clothes and new shoes etc etc. Dad always talks about how he only ever got new shoes at the new year and this only happened a couple of times… if that… (poor chap). So I’ve cleaned my room up (somewhat), but there still some more to go… Another (good) tradition is lucky money in the form of red envelopes. I’m not sure on the whole deal, but married relatives give them out and they generally contain money. Monday is my 25th birthday, and as things roll about with New Year and my 25 years of existance on this planet, I’m trying to make a few changes in my life in terms of habits and thought patterns. It’s kinda funny, when I was studying my brain activity seemed to have an active lifestyle, but since I’ve been unemployed, my brain power is limiting itself and this is something that needs to be rectified.
