How long do I have to carry this town...?

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

That SKYPE prison teacher lady said to type out that sentence. Like over and over. 'Cause it uses all the words in the alphabet. Sorry. Trying to get my brain and fingers working together. 

Was on the dark side of the web last night. Again. I couldn't sleep. The demons came. I'm not talking about those all-night Uber driver dudes that live down the hall and drive by night and sleep by day.

Demons. The dark side. I was only on there for maybe 3 or 4...hours. Lots of weird sites. It was scary and getting scarier. Funny, I started to like myself again. My eyes began to flutter closed.

Eventually, I dozed off reading through my digital book galley proof of my latest book "Confessions...of a Hollywood Movie Extra." It's out now and downloadable via Amazon, Barnes & Noble and on the shelf in discerning prison libraries worldwide.

It's about my Hollywood misadventures in the screen trade. The ups. The downs. The magic. The good. The bad. The ugly.

As I read 'Movie Extra' on my devices, I realize how long I've been carrying this whole town. I've worked with them all. I've made them all look good. 

All of em. Denzel. Hanks. Clooney. Okay, I ain't no matinee idol. But, the audience looks at me and then looks over at them. Next, to me, they look good. How long do I have to carry these guys? 

Scorsese. Lynch. Fincher. Tarantino. I've seen all their movies. 

Hello! I've been carrying these guys too. I've had a gutful.

Looks like I'm going to have to save up some bucks from my background extra acting gigs and now that I've lost a few pounds, those Saturday nights shows @ Magic Mike's, and jump aboard MegaBus and head up to Sundance next January. 

Well, maybe Slamdance if the suits haven't finally pulled the plug by that time. Bastards.

I love La La Land, but with my special 'Look' I may have to go full- bore Indie.

Maybe that Park City, Utah clean air will help clear my head.

How's your community service going?

Good luck with your parole hearing.

Hope your 2017 is kick-derriere. 

See you at the movies...
